LOVE the Chevron background!

One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up!  would be how simple it is to make a great card to say "hi", Happy Birthday, or whatever else I want to say.  I used the Positively Chevron background stamp for these cards. These were the two beginnings of the card.  I'll post the finished projects tomorrow!

Quick little gift

This little gift is fun for a quick one for a friend or co-worker, or for a party favor!  I got the idea of the internet.  It uses the stamp set Label Love and the matching punch.  This holds a Tootsie Pop.

Catching up -

It's been way too long since I posted any of my work.  So, I'll try to catch up a bit and show what I have been doing. Mostly going to school online, working 40 hours a week, and teaching an early morning Seminary class to youth 14-18.  It keeps me super busy (more than I would like most weeks)  and not much time for crafting.  I have kept my head above water, but barely.  I will try in the next few days to find and photograph cards we have done in clubs this year.  Enjoy the ride!

all of these were prototypes for my Pampered Chef consultant, Chach.  She wanted some options for cards for her clients.  She loved them all, decided to wait to get them as thank you and birthday cards.  Which is YOUR favorite?  I will have a prize for one random winner.  Pass this along to friends and have them post a comment below for a chance to win!  Please include your email so I can let you know if you win!  I will use the random generator on Dec 31 to draw a prize for the new year 2014!

Good luck!

Out with the old, to make room for the NEW!~

A new Idea Book and Catalog is coming June 3, so Stampin' Up!  has to make room for the new stuff.  That means retiring lists are out.  Check out what items are not going to be available after June 3.  This first list is the STAMPS - they will be available until that date.  The second list is for retiring accessories which are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:

I have created a Hostess code for your orders and I am giving the hostess benefits away!  When you get to my Stampin' Up! website, HERE, you will enter in this code:  ABQJNE62.  That will link your order to the mystery hostess order and once I close the order, I will give one of you that orders the hostess FREE products!  

So, what are you waiting for?

Cricut project - OVERDUE!

Another overdue partial project - I have a co-worker who asked me LAST year (that should read 2011!!!!) to make her baby a name frame.  Well....  I completely forgot and she mentioned it to me again before our Christmas break last month.  I promised her I would get it for her.  SOOOO......  (drumroll please.........)

There isn't any stamping on it, but I LOVE it and had to share it with you!

Blue Ribbon Day

I guess since I actually stamped today you could call it a BLUE RIBBON day,  These were pieces parts from other projects.  I had a goal to put some of the partially done cards together into actual cards.  How many of you have half done projects?  GET 'EM DONE!  That is one of my goals this year - to keep up with projects and get partially done ones finished and don't have any more partials.!  (Sounds like a Boy Scout Merit Badge fiasco!)

The set was Blue Ribbon.  The colors on the top card were Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.  The second set were Regal Rose and Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade.
