For Every Mother

Today is Mother’s Day and for some it’s a time to celebrate the women in our lives. This week I wanted to tackle some card designs for Mother’s Day but I wanted to make sure to include everyone in this post! I know I’m grateful to have a great relationship with my mother (who also happens to be a Stampin’ Up! demo herself) and so today’s post is dedicated to her; for showing me the world of Stampin’ Up! and for being my own personal cheerleader.

Just A Note

With the snow melting at last and spring peeking around the corner, I finally get inspired to stamp.

Of Myths and Magic

Have you ever wished you could be off fighting a dragon, swimming in the deepest depths, or conjuring sights to behold? Me too and with the Magical Day set you can do just that.

As soon as I got home I was inspired to create these cards using products from both the Occasions and Annual catalog.Read More »

Sale-a-brate!

The day is finally here; the 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration have arrived and I feel like I could be dancing all around my stamp room! When I got to sneak a peek at these amazing products back in November I was in love. There are so many versatile and amazing sets, I wanted to buy the whole catalog right then and there. Not to mention the innovation that has gone into some of my favorite products. Today starts some of my favorite¬†months in the Stampin’ Up! year. Sale-A-Bration lasts until March 31,¬†2018 and the Occasions Catalog goes all the way until May 31, 2018!

To kick off these next few months I wanted to challenge myself to create a group of cards around 1 color scheme. My go-to was black and white with a pop of color and some gold thrown in. Instead of going for one of my usual colors I decided to switch things up and use a color I almost never do. It even became one of my favorite colors I’ve ever used!
