Throwback Thursday: Happy Easter

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m bringing back a really cute Easter card and a scrapbook page! With the products we currently have in our catalog today, you could easily recreate either of these two projects.

My “technique” that I was teaching when these were created was “Dying your Glimmer Paper”.  I taught my classes how to use your ink refills and either a sponge dauber or the Stampin’ Spritzers to color the Glimmer paper … NOW you don’t have too! With the beautiful colors of Glimmer Paper Stampin’ Up! has brought out for Sale-a-bration all you have to do is punch! No fuss required!

The first is my bunny card …

Both the bunny and the eggs were created with a combination of circle and oval punches … now, I think I would use the Layering Circle and Oval Framelits. You will have a greater choice of sizes this way. The little bunny tail was made with a flower punch.

I used the same format on my scrapbook page as I did on my card.  That is one thing that I have always taught in my classes.  Use what inspires you to create what ever you need.  How do you like the little chick I tucked inside the cracked egg? Again, made with the oval 🙂

OK, I have one more card that I want to share with you that I created using the “Dying your Glimmer Paper” technique …

You could easily recreate this card using the Sale-a-bration Glimmer paper. And you know what … the “Petite Petals” punch that I used to make this card is still in the catalog!!  You know what else would be cute … the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Just because something is old (Created 2014) … doesn’t mean it can’t be new again!

Thank you for stepping back in time with me today, I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun!

Have yourself a wonderful day ~


Below is a list of products I used and suggested products to create that projects shown.  You can purchase any of these items by clicking on the item.  Remember that you will receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more.

Throwback Thursday: Fall Fun

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I love fall,  it is my favorite season and hosts my second favorite holiday … Halloween. I love the crisp air, the smell and the beautiful colors, not to mention the visits to the pumpkin farms!

Today I’m sharing two scrapbook pages that I did years ago, but the layouts used make them timeless.

The first is a visit to the pumpkin farm with 2 of my granddaughters. A simple layout but it works beautifully as it really makes the pictures “pop” … and isn’t that was scrapbooking is all about – the pictures!


I still laugh when I look at this page. We told Cassie should could have any pumpkin she wanted as long as she could pick it up! Well let me tell you… that young girl had a lot of determination, you can see her struggle, but she got them and was so proud.

The second is another layout of us at the pumpkin farm … this time I used a split photo technique. I always wanted to do that and it really looks cool.


These pages are really making me long for the days of pumpkin farms … time to pick up my great grandson and continue the traditions!

Hope you enjoyed the layouts, and that it inspires you to pull out your photos and do a bit of scrapbooking.

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Halloween Night Scrapbook page

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have for you a scrapbook page! Stampin’ Up! has made it easy to do some quick -n-cute scrapbook pages … let’s start on page 51 in the Holiday catalog.

The base of my scrapbook page is the “Halloween Night” 12 x 12 cardstock pack. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see colored 12 x 12 cardstock back – a scrapbookers delight!  Woooo Hoooo!


Now … here comes the easy part, the “Halloween Nights Specialty” designer paper has a cute sheet that has little haunted houses all over it, so I simply just cut off the bottom layer of houses and added it to my page!

Your page will come to life when you add pictures of your cute trick -or- treaters going from house to house. Don’t forget that close up shot of their cute little face 🙂

This close up shows you the detail … right down to the cute little “Pumpkin Pie” dots. As you know, our designer paper is created using our family of colors so everything coordinates beautifully.


 My hauntingly cute ghosts were created from the Paisley framelits (although you’ll want to bundle that set) and the faces came from the “Spooky Fun” stamp set (also has a great bundle).

Tomorrow I’ll share a “Paisley” card with you and on Tuesday I’ll share 2 quick cards from our “Halloween Nights Specialty” designer paper… so I hope you stop by, or better yet, just follow my blog and you’ll get an e-mail each time I post!

Thank you for the visit and can’t wait to show you the other projects!

Have an awesome day ~

Some “Throw Back Thursday” Fun!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

We are over the hump and heading into the weekend … it’s a good day! I thought it would be fun to share some scrapbook pages that I created many years ago when I first started demonstrating.

Times and embellishments have changed greatly since then, but the photos and memories we save will always touch our hearts. I admit, I prefer the “hands-on” approach to scrapbooking vs. computerized.

In the spirit of “Throw Back Thursday” … do you remember Button Bear!! Very, very popular when I started stamping.  Here he is helping my grandson celebrate his birthday!


Not sure AJ would want me scrapbooking him with Button Bear anymore … he’s more into BMX bikes!

Here is another page done with a camping stamp set. Now I would use the “Project Life: Let’s Get Away”. One of the sayings in that set is “To Live is to Travel” … I think Shayla would agree to that. I think I instilled the love of traveling into her.


I really do miss that swirl stamp for my pages though … I always thought that looked so cool!

My last page is another birthday … Cassie’s first! I haven’t done a monochromatic page in a while, and now most of my pages are done in the 12 x 12 format.


With so many birthday stamp sets to choose from, it wouldn’t be hard to create a page. Two of my favorites are “Birthday Yay” because of the numbers and “Sweet Stack” just because I think it’s so much fun.

I think it’s time to begin sharing a little more scrapbooking here on my blog! It’s not something I’ve done much of. Any of these pages could easily be done on a 12 x 12 layout or the Project Life style (where you just pocket photo’s, cards and embellishments.

You can watch this short video to learn a little more about Project Life …

I’ve shared the links to the products I mentioned in the post with you below. Just click on them for more information.

I definitely need to share some updated scrapbook pages … two of these grandchildren are in high school and the other has graduated to make me a great grandma! How times flies.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Happy Thursday!
