Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share with you the Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit video.  It’s such a cute wreath to decorate with for the upcoming Halloween season.

Here are some additional samples that were shared at our Stampin’ Up! National Convention …

Sara_convention14_samples_20It is so cute, and a bit of a twist from the original wreath, just by cutting down the silver spider web.


Sara_convention14_samples_7 Oh my … this is the sweetest Halloween treat bag I’ve ever seen.  I love the partial spider web (or you could turn then into bat wings!)


Sara_convention14_samples_6Here is a cute Halloween card using the wreath kit supplies.  You choose how you want to decorate your wreath and have FUN with it!  Make sure you use us those left overs to create something cool.

Thanks for checking it out …

Have a fabulous day!



Monday can be Awesome!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had an enjoyable holiday weekend.  Mine was somewhat quite … a bit of stampin’ and a bit of planning for upcoming events!  I need all my Hostesses to save the 28th of July so they can attend my Hostess Appreciation Party!  It’s going to be a good one.

My stampin’ was upon request.  I have been asked to share some quick -n- easy cards that showcase the designer paper, since that is our special of the month!  So for the next couple of days, I will do just that.  You asked for it, you got it!


You’ve seen samples created with the Park Lane and the Lullaby, so today I am introducing you to the Sweet Taffy … sounds yummy doesn’t it.  I definitely have a taste for this designer paper, I love the colors and the patterns are fun!


I’ve teamed up this hexagon pattern with Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive.  I used my markers to color the greeting so I could have a two-tone effect.

My “awesome” greeting comes from the stamp set “Big News” found on page 68 of the annual catalog.  This stamp set also contains greetings for brides, babies, and birthdays!!

I thought it would be fun to show you another button from the Vintage buttons I showed you yesterday.  Today I colored it with the Old Olive Blendabilities markers.  There is still one more style of button in the container!


I finished off the card by adding a bit of bling to highlight the button and greeting.  Who doesn’t have an awesome friend that deserves a bit of bling and a card to tell them how special they are.

Just a bit of coloring on the greeting and the button, along with some awesome designer paper and you have a quick and easy card.  Hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you for stopping in, come back tomorrow for another sample of a quick-n-easy DSP card.

Have an awesome day!




You Make the World a Better Place …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you this fine Sunday? Oops, some of you are on a waaaay different time zone, but I hope you are having a wonderful day too.  I am blessed to have visitors to my blog from all over the world … I would love for you to leave a comment at the end and tell me where “you” are from.

OK … today’s card share is going to look a bit familiar to my stampin’ clubs, at least the layout.   I want to share with you a card that I created using the Sunburst Saying Bundle (stamp set and framelits).


As you can see, I have chosen the “Watercolor Wonder” designer series paper again.  I love that paper, but I will start sharing ideas with other paper I have 🙂  I also used the “Banner Framelit” Dies… banners made easy!

My card base color is “Island Indigo” and I have accented it with the Wild Wassabi, and Daffodil Delight.  It really is easy to pick colors when they’re already on the paper (and now listed on the back of the designer paper packet).


The little daffodil dots on the bottom are just punched out of the “Owl Builder” punch and then covered with Crystal Effects.  It balances not only the card, but the color.

So today, another quick and simple card to re-create and can be used for a guy or a gal.

Don’t forget to jot me a little note to introduce yourself … your name and where you live.  I’d love to hear from you.

So happy you joined me today, I thank you for that.

Have a super Sunday!

Watercolor Thank You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you some more patterns from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper.  Yesterday I showed you my least favorite … today I will show you two of my favorites!

I must say, I am really beginning to fall in love with this new designer paper, and I can’t wait to host an event and let you get your hands on it.  In fact, watch for an e-mail announcing my “Sale-a-bration Stampede”… I am working on the details now, and will be sending out details in about a week.

On to today’s card share, I have used 3 more patterns from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper …


Can you tell which are my favorites?  You’re right, it is the flowered patterns.  They were both so beautiful, I wanted to share them both.  I tied the colors together by using the yellow & gray stripped pattern … the Smokey Slate (gray) is found in the blue pattern, and the yellow from the striped coordinates with the yellow & tangerine, it then tied them together perfectly.

I began with the usual 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ cardstock in Whisper White, and folded it in half for the base of my card.  The mat for the card is Smokey Slate and is cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″.  The flower pieces were cut at 3-1/4″ x 1-7/8″ and the stripped pattern was 1-1/4″ x 1-7/8″.  These will now piece together nicely on the mat… much easier to do than a puzzle.

My greeting comes from the stamp set “Lots of Thanks” found on page 29 of the Idea Book & Catalog (our main catalog).  I then cut the greeting and the Smokey Slate mat from the “Ovals Collection Framelits“.  There are 7 layer dies with this set, so they can highlight any greeting!


I always stamp my image / greeting first, and then cut it out … that way I don’t have to worry about it being crooked, because I can always place the die where I need to.

I wanted to add a special little touch to the card, so I cut out one of the flowers from the designer paper and popped it up over the greeting.  To finish, I added a couple of “Pearls” from the jewels on page 171.  You can also click on any of the links (highlighted in pink) to view the product details.

So here you have it, some of my favorite patterns from the “Watercolor Wonder” designer series paper.


Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to spend it with me.

Have an awesome day ~

Oh Hello …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I was looking through some of my photos and found some really cute projects that I had not shared from the Oh Hello stamp set.

My club members did a card similar to this one last year, but as you know in the stampin’ world, we all share and case ideas.


I received the stamp set along with all these other goodies at Leadership this past January.  Leadership is training, stampin’ and fun for demonstrators that hold the title Senior Supervisor and above.


Managers and above were invited for a fun filled night at Universal Studios and the Wizardly World of Harry Potter.  Oh my gosh… was that a blast!  We were the only people there and were totally spoiled.

I have another cute little project that I got a photo of.  This cute little box could so easily be turned into a card or scrapbook page.  How easy … just stamp the words in different colors… nice effect!

WEB-Oh Hello Box

Just a quick post today … hope you enjoyed.
