Fab Friday 155

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  If I had a diary, it might look something like this: Dear Diary, the sun hasn't shined in eighty seven days!  LOL!  Seriously, it is SO GRAY here and my photos are suffering!  But I had to take a photo on this gray day for the latest Fab Friday challenge!

This one really is much  prettier in real life.  I could NOT get the colors to photograph well at all with this crummy weather.

The cakes and the ruffled ribbon are a perfect match!  As are Soft Seafoam cardstock stamped with Mint Macaron ink!  I also added a few wooden elements from the SAB catalog that I dyed be gently pressing them into a pad.

Make sure to check out what the design team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  It IS Thursday, right?  WHY am I so off on my days???  Seriously 2019 is messing with me!  With everything going on this month, I have yet to shout about the best time of the year at Stampin' Up!  Sale A Bration!!!!  Until the end of March you can get awesome FREE stuff with your purchases!  Check it out!

I'm going to dig in soon and show you some of the awesome goodies you can get your hands on with your $50 order.  And there's no limit!  For every 50 you spend, you earn more free goods!  It IS before tax and shipping so remember that AND there is even some items you can earn if you spend $100!

And three cheers for SAB because there are THREE ways to earn free stuff!!!!  If you host a class or party with me you can earn free items based on your sales!  If you'd like to set something up just let me know!  I'd love to show your friends how to make fun and cute items while getting you freebies!

Ok, so now that you got the low down, onto the project which uses a cute SAB set that you can get for free!

Who doesn't love a cupcake?  This one is easy to build because it's a photopolymer set and you just line it up and stamp! They even included a little piece for the actual cupcake that peeks out under the icing, isn't that fantastic??????  I can't ice a cupcake very well but I can stamp one :-)

My color inspiration for this card started with that YUMMY granny apple green and coastal cabana ribbon!  I just HAD to use it.  It's so spectacular!

I also used the new rectangle framelits which are SO GREAT!   They would get you well on your way to earning the set for free, too!  Add in the ribbon and glitter dots and you're only ONE dollar away from a SAB reward!  Grab some cardstock or adhesive and there you go!

Happy stamping!

Well Hello There!

Hi stampers!  Happy....Wednesday!  It IS Wednesday, right?  I have been off ever since Christmas vacation and I'm STILL not back to our normal routine or at least it feels that way still for some reason.  Maybe it's because they changed up the class schedule at the gym, ha!  I HATE that, I'm still trying to figure out what classes are going to work for me what days!

I haven't stamped much but I'm working on it.  I did get some time in last Sunday so have a few things to share!  But I'm hoping to get back to "normal" (as if I was normal ever lol) soon and try to do some videos and classes and other fun things!  I'm excited for 2019!

Here's a fun card I made over the weekend.  I tend to "forget" about things in the annual catalog and I shouldn't because there is some great stuff in there!  This was a fantastic set from last year's Occasions Catalog and it carried over so I dug it out!  It makes a super simple but fun card!  This is almost #simplestamping.  Almost ;-)

I also dug out some Pacific Point.  I don't use that color often but I really should!  I think I'll hop on FB or Instagram and try out a real #simplestamping version using a notecard!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 154

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday and happy new year.  Things have been quiet here, sorry.  I'll fill you in later.  For now, let's check out the new challenge at Fab Friday.

I really love these colors!  They work so well for so many of our stamp sets but this one in particular!

Ack, I just loooooove this set!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 153

Hi stampers!  If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen why it's been quiet around here.  I've been trying to get all things Christmas done and then Ian came down with a NASTY bug.  Of course Jon was out of town, too.  It's the sickest I've ever seen him and they thought it was influenza.  Thankfully, he tested negative today and is acting much more himself but I'm struggling to make up for all the things I didn't get done while he was down.

So this post will be quick and straightforward and hopefully I can get it together in the new year :-)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!

I just love this set and I did NOT use it to it's fullest potential at all!  How cute is it as a Valentine?  And how cute are those sprinkles!  I actually use a lot of baker's Instagram accounts for color inspiration.  I wish I could make cute cookies, I mean real ones! ;-)

Happy stamping!

Manic Monday

Hi stampers!  My shirt today says, "In a holidaze".  Is anyone else feeling me?  LOL!  I have too much to do and not enough time to do it but I guess that's life in general ;-)

I have a quick project to share today!  I whipped this up for Chad when he was here last weekend as a little thank you.  My Young Living upline saw our pillow boxes and realized that our oil rollers and oil bottles would fit nicely in them!  I quickly embellished one up!

See how nice they fit in there!  If you wanted to make it extra fancy, just put some shredded paper in there!

I just love these boxes!

Happy stamping!

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Where has this week gone????  I do not have enough (online or in person) shopping days left until Christmas, lol!  It's a good thing Stampin' Up! is on a "simple stamping" kick because that's all the time I have for cards!

At onstage, they really wanted to focus on the three things you need to stamp a card, stamps, paper, and ink.  Sometimes it really can be that simple!  I love making "fancy" cards but I've found that I really like keeping it simple, too!  Simple can be stunning!  Our Notecards make it easy, you don't have to cut them and they are pre-scored to fold!  And they include envelopes.  I went ahead and even stamped the envie for this one! IF THIS lazy stamper can do that, you can too ;-)

Ack!  Isn't it cute!?!?  Can we talk about those cascading stars for a minute?  SO PRETTY!

New to stamping?  All you need is a stamp, pack of notecards, and a few ink pads and you can make these as your Christmas cards!  And even if you're an experienced stamper, take a minute to try some simple stamping!  It was a challenge for me but a lot more fun than I expected!

Happy stamping!
