Happy Valentime's Day

Hi stampers!  No, that's not a typo in the title of my blog post.  That's how the 4 year old says Valentine's and I kind of love it :-)  I'm a bad mom and haven't made his card yet (he's requested LOTS of cards and treats lol) so that's on the agenda while he's at school.  I do have his treats ready to go for his class thanks to My Paper Pumpkin last month!

Speaking of MPP, it's turning SIX in March!  To celebrate, they are including a second bonus stamp set in each cute kit!

You can click the graphic to sign up!  Make sure to do it before March 10th!

Anyway today's card is super simple because I have dropped the ball on Valentine's and pretty much everything this week...we've had a lot to do, appointments and what not.  Whoops!  But that's what I love about Stampin' Up!  You can spend lots of time on complicated projects or a little time on simple ones that are still stinkin' cute, like this!

Isn't it cute?  All I did was stamp and color in with some Blends markers!

Happy Valentine's Day and happy stamping!

February Is Flying By

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  How can it be the week of Valentine's Day already?  January was so long but in true fashion, February is flying by!  I'm way behind on Valentine production but at least Ian's treats are mostly done thanks to January's My Paper Pumpkin!

I actually had a class with some friends and the refill kits (which are sold out now, I got them early, knew they'd be hot) over the weekend and we cranked out some pillow boxes!  We were delighted to find that there were a lot of extra pieces left over.  I supposed I knew this but I can't count ;-)  This kit was so amazing since it coordinated with the Animal Outing Bundle in the catalog!

While I used one of the remaining cut outs from the kit, you could easily swap out the stamped image in the stamp set for this card!  I actually was going to make it with the stamp set and then decided I was way too lazy to stamp and color it, LOL!  I just love these bright colors together!

Happy stamping!

One In A Chameleon

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I have something fun for you today I think!  But first, we have to talk about My Paper Pumpkin or MPP for short!  My Paper Pumpkin is our cute and fun little surprise crafting box that shows up every month.

MPP is perfect for everyone but especially beginners or people who don't have or want to invest a lot of time, money, and space but still want to make pretty things!  The boxes come with everything you need to make the projects which vary from month to month (hence the surprise).  I had actually taken a break from it for a while and I was a SAD PANDA when I saw January's box!  It was SO cute!  And so fun!  They had made the kit so it coordinated with one of our current bundles in the Annual Catalog, Animal Outing!

This is one of the cutest sets in the catalog, I think!  There is a designer series paper that coordinates, too!  Anyway, I was able to snag a box from my friend and I'm having some friends over to make the cute Valentine's tomorrow!  I'll share them next week!

But, I've made some things with the stamp set from the paper pumpkin kit and I'm in love with this one!  I did a watercolor background and I will say this one took a while.  I let all of the layers and colors dry in between so make sure you have some time if you want to re-create it!

And it's so funny that Ian just came home yesterday with a chameleon he'd made at school where they are learning about them!  He's requested lots of cards and treats (lol) for Valentine's so I'll have to include this one for him!  He really is one in a million so this is perfect! ;-)

But seriously, how cute and clever is this?  I just love it!

They have also given us a little sneak peek into this month's kit!  It's sure to be cute and they have let us know it's cards!  If you want to sign up, you can just click HERE and make sure you put me as your demonstrator.

You can also sign up for pre-paid boxes (6 and 12 months) in my store using the shop 24/7 link over to the right and earn FREE Sale A Bration items!

Hi There Cactus

Hi stampers!  Happy hump day!  I just can't get enough of this stamp set!  Maybe it's because it's so fun or maybe it's because it reminds me of the sun, which I feel like refuses to shine, lol!  It's foggy and gray today and it was yesterday, too!  I need the sun!!!!!

Anyway, I'm loving the color combo here!  And I love making cards just to say, hey!  I need to actually send some!  That's on my to-do list this month along with one million other things :-)

What's on your to-do list?  Hopefully it's ordering this stamp set!  Remember, you can earn free items with your purchase with Sale A Bration!

And....don't forget you can get your hands on even more stuff by joining my little team and getting our amazing starter kit! a class or party with me and your friends and earn extra goodies!

Bright Birthday

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  We made it through our busy Monday although I didn't get much extra stuff checked off of my list.  I guess that's what today is for!

I have a bright birthday card for you today!  I saw one similar somewhere last week but I can't remember who it was!  Anyway, this is my take on it.  I used the die and just hand cut small bits of cardstock to adhere behind each gift.  This bundle is just so much fun!

It's hard to see in the photo, but I popped the presents up on dimensionals.  Thankfully, you can't see how crooked my sentiment is with the way I held the card, ha!

This bundle is so cute and so fun.  I can't wait to play with it more!  And Ian has been telling me he has a pile of presents for my birthday later this month (lol).  Maybe this is part of the pile, haha!

Mailable Monday - Manic Monday

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  So I realized I need to share and make more Valentine's Day card since it's going to be here before we know it!  I whipped this up the other day and love the combo of Poppy Parade, Gorgeous Grape, Petal Pink and Highland Heather.

I also love the Rectangle Framelits.  For the circle, I just doodled some stitches to mirror the main panel.  This one is much prettier in person, too.  It wouldn't photograph the way I wanted.  Grrrrr!

That's it for today!  Gotta get busy.  Is Monday busy for you?  We always do our "usual" stuff like the gym but we have to grocery shop and then my in laws where here over the weekend so I'll be straightening up the house, too:-)  And I have a ton of other stuff to catch up on (baskets of clean laundry lol).  We also go to a fun little sports camp for Ian.  Monday-Funday or manic Monday!!!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 156

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday and happy freaking February!  January was sooooooooo long :-)  It always is!  But it is time for a new color challenge over at Fab Friday!

Clearly, this would be a good on for Valentine's Day but I just wasn't feeling it the other day when I sat down to stamp.  I went with a birthday theme.  And I wanted to note that a few of the products on this card are SUPER popular and may sell out!  The Foil Sheets in the Sale A Bration brochure may run out soon they are so pretty and so popular!  Also, the Cake Builder Punch has been super popular and may be delayed for a bit BUT good news, it will be back and it will be back in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog.   Because of this info, I wanted to pull these items out while I could!

Pretty cute, right????  I used my Blends to color and my foil sheet to punch out a pretty cake stand!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team has and play along with us!

Happy stamping!
