I'm still playing with the Tropical Oasis Suite today. Just looking at this paper and stamp set makes me wish I was sitting on a beach somewhere enjoying a nice umbrella drink. I'm looking forward to the day when I can just lay around enjoying the sun and a nice fruity cocktail. Frankly, I could be laying around now since I have no plans to go anywhere, but laying the backyard is just not the same as relaxing on a beach listening to the … [Read more...] about Umbrella Drinks
Today, I'm joining The What's New at Stampin Up Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with exciting ideas to share with you.

Just to give you a little history, I've been blogging regularly since 2013. Seven years! Can you believe it? And in seven years, technology changes quite a bit. I knew about six months ago I was going to need to do a major update on my blog and hosting, but put it off until after the Holidays. Then of course, major plumbing problems, house construction, etc, and here it is April. But it is finally done! I am so excited for the new graphics and … [Read more...] about Welcome To My New Space!
Today's card was created by a dear friend who came to my rescue so I could share a project with you today. She must be tired of my vague promises of something awesome coming soon. Haha! This fabulous card was designed and created by Poli Rizco. The stamp set is called Music From The Heart. It's actually one that I hadn't really noticed in the catalog so I'm very glad that she used it. And the "forget your trebles" is just perfect for … [Read more...] about Forget Your Trebles
I seriously over-estimated my capabilities in getting a new project made and ready to post for today. I'm still surrounded by boxes and piles of craft supplies in my studio. In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite projects so far from the Spring Catalog. I just love this adorable little lion from the Birthday Bonaza Suite. He's just the cutest little love. These foil heart treat holders are still available to … [Read more...] about I’ve Got Nothing…
This is definitely one of those "hidden gem" stamp sets. I've made a few cards using several of the images and I can't wait to make more. There are a number of stamps for different occasions in the set. The images are just the cutest and begged to be colored. I colored the berry using my Blends alcohol markers, using Real Red and Old Olive. I used the same design from the card I shared on Friday for this card... the pattern paper as the … [Read more...] about Witty-cisms
I send all my customers that make a purchase a thank you card. In February, I had a couple customers that made more than one purchase and I didn't want to send them two of the same card. This is the alternate thank you card that I sent out. This card uses the adorable stamp set Witty-cisms. This stamp set was designed by Stampin Up Demonstrator Lisa Fast that achieved $1,000,000 in sales. Designing your own stamp set is one of the perks … [Read more...] about Another Round of Thanks
