A Pop of Fun

Happy Monday my stampin’ peeps! I hope you had a great weekend. I found some time to play along with the sketch challenge over at TGIF Challenges, and I loved it!

TGIF MAY 2016 New Challenges-001

and my card

TGIFC55Card

The paper blocks are from the upcoming designer series paper Pop of Pink. I just love this color combination and can see a lot of this in my future! I think the flower from Botanical Blooms is just perfect in this color.

Color Challenge with Royalty

Happy Friday friends. I am so glad the weekend is here. We had a great week except for showing up for a field trip on the wrong day….oops! Ha, ha ha. I did have to laugh about it. We will try again next week.

Tonight I had the opportunity to play along with the color challenge at Stampin’ Royalty.

and here is my card:

The background uses both Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Textures. I am in love with the new Swirls thinlits, available on June 1st. These colors are stunning together and I am sure this will not be the last time I use them.

May Sketch Challenge at SSInk

Happy Hump Day! Or evening if you rather. In any case, the week is cruising by. Today I had a chance to play along with the challenge over at SSInk.

#SSINKCS33-May

And here is my card:

SSInkCS33This card was made for my friend Whitney who graduated from Pharmacy school this week! I am so proud of her and her hard work. These are her school colors and they actually worked nicely together in this project. I am trying to also use any retiring product as much as possible these next 3 weeks and this card has the Chevron embossing folder for the background. I know that I will miss using that!

Sale-A-Bration Celebration Treats

Hello my crafty peeps. I have some very fun projects to share with you today. Last week I hosted my 1st annual Sale-A-Bration Celebration. It was an event for my hosts and customers who held events or placed party sized orders during my best ever SAB! It was my change to say thank you and spoil them! We played silly games, enjoyed a delicious desert bar and of course stamped. Each guest was also treated to gifts – which I had so much fun making.

This week Stampin’ Royalty is hosting an Anything BUT a Card challenge I thought this would be the perfect time to share the pillow gifts my guests received.

Making 3-D items is one of my favorite ways to enjoy paper crafting and these were pure joy for me! I absolutely loved spoiling my guests and I think they enjoyed it at well.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please let me know what you think of my project and you can subscribe to my blog and newsletter so that you never miss another post, special or event.

ICS Blog Hop Girls Night Out

ICSBlogHopHello Hoppers and welcome to the May 2016 edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! I am so glad that you are here. Tonight is all about the girls! My teen daughter and I are blessed to have some amazing women in our lives and we created this collection together to honor them this weekend for Mother’s Day. Every card was created as a one of a kind piece, because each of them are One of a Kind!

This Designer Series Paper has been such a favorite of mine and I had to just use it up before it retires. I think it is one of the most gorgeous papers we have ever offered. The sponging on the flowers isn’t a new technique but it’s timeless and so easy!

Now it is time to hop over to Deb’s blog and see what she has for us!

and the inside of the card

SR327 insidecard I wish that the Wink of Stella that is on the butterfly showed up a little more in this photo. I love the combination of textures from the silver foil, sponged doily, pearls and striped embossing folder. I am excited to have also made this card for a friend’s grandmother for Mother’s Day! I hope that she will love it.
