Sneak Peek & Happy New Year!

Hello Stampin’ Friends and a Very Happy New Year to you!

I have enjoyed sharing samples and tips with you this past year … I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to check out my blog. And a huge Thank You for designating me as your demonstrator when you place your orders. I am grateful for your support.

Today I want to share a card with you that expresses my gratitude …


I just had to share the new “Botanical Builder” Framelits Dies and of course I teamed it up with the “Botanical Gardens” Designer Series paper.

Want to hear something really exciting? Stampin’ Up! not only bundled the framelits with the fabulous stamp set “Botanical Blooms” but they included the Designer Paper!! That really excites me because this fabulous bundle qualifies you for a FREE Sale-a-bration item!


Don’t you love the larger flower and how it cuts to create a double flower. What a quick and easy way to add dimension to your card, and besides … it just looks cool!

I also used the cute “Expressions Natural Elements” … I left them natural because I thought it looked best with the designer paper. Did you know that you can dye them by sponging ink directly onto them or heat emboss them to create a metallic look.


Thanks for coming over to my blog today … I  look forward to bringing you even more card samples, scrapbook pages, and stampin’ tips! Also watch for more stamp camps, specialty classes and as always our Spring & Fall retreats.

I wish for you a year full of friends, good health, and what your heart desires.




Love Blossoms Sneak Peek!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you and your families got to spend much time together and had a wonderful holiday.

Today I have a very special post for you. It is a sneak peek into a new product suite “Love Blossoms”. You will simply fall in love with the entire suite … the new “Blooming Heart” Thinlits Dies, the “Love Blossoms” Designer Series Paper stack, the “Blushing Bride Gimmer paper” (yes, you read that correctly), the “Bloomin’ Love” stamp set and the “Love Blossoms” Embellishment kit.

All of these fabulous products will all be available for purchase on January 5th!! If you would like a copy of the new Occasions Catalog … let me know, I’d be happy to send any of my on-line customers a catalog.

If you are one of my regular customers and did not get one in the mail, also let me know because I don’t want you to miss out on this one.


Love takes many different shapes—and the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set (OC, p. 17) recognizes that with a variety of sentiments. Create this beautiful card for your friend or your one-and-only “xoxo” using products from the Love Blossoms Suite in the 2016 occasions catalog

Hope you enjoyed … Keep an eye out this week because I will be posting more sneak peeks for you.

Thank you for stopping by …

Have a wonderful day!
