I love Pinterest

Happy Monday everyone! I hope all of you mothers out there had a nice relaxing Mother's Day yesterday! I know I did, because I got to craft most of the day :) What better way to spend a day, than to craft. I did something I haven't done for a while, and that is case cards I found on Pinterest. I had so much fun creating this cards and I can't wait to make more. All of the supplies came from Stampin Up, you can order products from my website here.

For this first card, I used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, the stamp set Work of Art, and the ink colors; Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Pool Party.

This next card uses the Grateful Bunch stamp (which if you bundle with the punch you can save 15%) set along with the ink colors; Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry. As well as a strip of designer paper, a button, and a Vellum overlay. 

Finally, this last card used the Botanical Blooms bundle along with the card stock colors; Old Olive, Blushing Bride, and Melon Mambo. 

Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at Have a wonderful day!!

Retiring in colors blog hop Day 3

Happy Friday everyone! Once again, thanks for coming by to check out my project for today. I created an altered project for my post today. I went to my local dollar store and bought a package of 5 notepads for $1. I then cut a piece of white cardstock at 3 x 5 1/2. I then used the What I Love stamp set and all of the retiring 2014-2016 in colors to create a cover for each notepad. Then I added some bling and ribbon and these notepads look a little more expensive!

I hope you enjoyed my project for today. To get your own set of the retiring colors, please visit my website Thanks again for stopping by and I'll see you next time.

Retiring in colors hop day 2

Hello everyone and welcome back for day 2 of the retiring in color blog hop. Today we are continuing to showcase the Stampin Up retiring 2014-2016 in-colors; Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey.

I made a set of 4x4 notecards using a set from our previous Sale-a-bration promotion, a photopolymer stamp set called Another Thank you, which happens to be on the retiring list so if you're interested, please stop by my website to order it. You can see all of the retiring products there as well. I also used an embossing folder entitled Decorative Dots, one of my favorites so I'm so sad to see it go.

For these cards, I used the ink pads and a blending pen to color in the flowers and butterflies. Then I used a Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle.

If you're interested in purchasing any of the wonderful products Stampin Up has to offer, please head on over to the link. I'd love to earn your business.

Have a great day!



Please visit the rest of the demonstrators participating the hop for more inspiration!

Retiring In-colors product focus hop

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today.

For my projects this week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), I am focusing on the retiring 2014-2016 Stampin Up in-colors. This is a product focus hop I'm participating in along with some fellow Stampin Up demonstrators. Please visit all of the blogs for some wonderful inspiration.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used for my project today, please visit my Stampin Up website to purchase them. I'd love to earn your business. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email at

Today, I have made some card candy. The inspiration came from a post I found on Pinterest. I am going to be sending these to my club members. They have agreed to spend a certain amount every month, and in turn, they take turns being the monthly hostess and earning the benefits. If you're interested in joining my club, please contact me for details. Card candy is so convenient, the recipient creates the card and the embellishment is done for you! The card candy was made using the Chalk Talk stamps and matching dies. The colors used are the soon-to-be retiring 2014-2016 in-colors; Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, and Hello Honey. If you're interested in any of the products in these colors, please shop soon as they won't be available after May 31, 2016. These colors, along with other products are retiring with the release of the new catalog, set to go live June 1, 2016.

I hope you enjoyed this project. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or shop at my Stampin Up website. Happy Stamping and I hope you come back to visit on Wednesday to see my next project. Please follow the links below the pictures to see what other projects the amazing demonstrators have created.
