I know it's rare for me to post non-Stampin up products, but that doesn't mean that I don't occasionally use them in my personal crafting. And when my crafty friends design an amazing project, I am definitely game to make it. My friend Annette, the owner of AJ's Craft Cottage, makes these amazing seasonal frames. The cool factor with the frame is that you continue to reuse it and the individual panels pop in and out since they are held in with … [Read more...] about Something Different

Today's project was inspired by the project on page 47. … [Read more...] about Not Just Another Catalog
We are officially three days into “summer vacation” and we are doing good so far. We’ve had three days of Soccer Camp, our first official driving lesson (somebody just got her permit!), and time spent with friends. So far, I have not heard a single “I’m bored” or “there’s nothing to do around here”. I’ve got my fingers crossed that we can make it to Saturday without the “I’m bored” conversation and then I’ll call this week a win. I love to check … [Read more...] about Soar
I've heard from some of you that the May Paper Pumpkin kit was a little tough because of too many "dad" cards. Even though this kit was designed with Father's Day in mind, it doesn't have to be just for the guys. You can give a card to one of your favorite nature-loving girlfriends or your friend that loves to camp. And with the variety of sentiments in the kit, you should have enough words to say what you want to say. Paper Pumpkin kits can … [Read more...] about May Paper Pumpkin Revisited

It's Monday morning and that means it's Coffee Time! Actually every morning is coffee time around here. Coffee is one of those daily things that I look forward to with a passion. Just the right amount of sugar and cream, exactly measured out, paired with a lovely hazelnut coffee. That first sip of hot coffee in the morning is one of my favorite parts of the day. Today's project is my Ode to Coffee and all it's fabulousness. This is an … [Read more...] about Coffee Time!
As we count down to Mother's Day (five more days!), I have another project you can make for the mom that tells you "you don't have to get me anything". In the Occasions Catalog, there is a 3D box using the Apron dies. I really liked the idea of using the apron to make a box. This is a great idea to fill with a sweet treat for mom. It's big enough for a few candies or a gift card or both. Here is the Apron Box.The dimensions of the box are 2" wide … [Read more...] about Send Mom Some Love
I love it when Stampin Up comes out with a brand new product. There is nothing quite like playing with something new that you've never tried before. One of the preview products that I had for OnStage last Fall was Brusho. When I received it, I had never heard of this product. I had to google it and then I watched a couple videos on how it's used. Apparently Brusho has been around for awhile. Once I started playing around with it, I … [Read more...] about A Rainbow of Brusho
