I'm a fan of quick and simple cards. Sometimes those over the top cards are just too much. Same thing when it comes to pattern paper. Wild, crazy designs and bold colors are usually not my thing. I had to see the new Petals and Paisley's Designer Series Paper in action before I ordered it myself. I'll admit, some of these patterns are just not me. That's ok though because every sheet is 2-sided. I may not be fond of those giant paisley's, but the … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Totally Trees

School has been back in session almost two weeks and I'm quickly reminded of how crazy the Fall Season gets with all the homework and all the soccer. All. The. Soccer. Both kids play on the High School team and they both play on other teams as well (Club and AYSO). In addition, my husband and son are coaching a third team as well this year. If you ever need to locate me, it's guaranteed that I'll be on a soccer field somewhere in Southern … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Cookie Cutter Christmas
Today, I'm sharing a sneak peak of one of the Halloween sets that will be available in the Holiday Catalog. I know it might seem a little early for Halloween cards and treats, with school just starting. But with the whirlwind of back to school activities, I'm dreaming of some cooler Fall temperatures. I thought it would be fun to jump into the next Holiday. I love that there is a coordinating punch with the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set. I … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Cookie Cutter Halloween
Being a Stampin Up Demonstrator has some perks, like being able to buy products before they are released to the public and earning free products and free vacations just to name a few. But did you know that the top sellers in the Company get a very special perk? When you reach $1,000,000 in sales, you get to design your own stamp set, which will then appear in a future catalog. How cool is that! Today's stamp set was designed by Angie Juda and … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Bella & Friends
Today’s post is going to be short and sweet since my to-do list is growing at an exponential pace. Literally. For every one item I cross off, at least three more items get added. My to-do list is like bunnies – multiplying in the blink of an eye. So, I really needed a card that can be made in five minutes today. Thank goodness it just happens to be Five Minute Friday. Kind of serendipitous how that worked out. :) When it comes to the … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Balloons!
For the past several days, Stampin Up has been sharing some sneak peeks at products in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and let me tell you there are some really good things coming very soon. I can’t reveal anything just yet. But as a Demonstrator I get to start ordering some of these goodies next week and I cannot wait to get them. It’s almost better than Christmas. It’s Christmas craft supplies! Until I can share the new goodies, I’m sharing … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Twice The Jolly
I’m back with more Swirly Birds today for Five Minute Friday. I don’t know what it is about those silly swirls. They are addicting to play with. Don’t get me wrong, I love my other stamps, but you use a bird stamp half a dozen times, and you start to think “ok that’s enough birds for now”. But this stamp set was designed so well that the abstract shapes can be just about anything. The various shapes are just enough of a hint of something, that … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – More Swirly Birds
