April Mystery Challenge – SSInk

Hello again friends! The fine folks over at SSInk have a fantastic mystery challenge for us this month. I hope you will also play along!
 And here is my card:

As you can see I was able to incorporate quite a few elements from the challenge this month. We of course have the wonderful flowers from the Botanical Bloom bundle, we have the 3 colors of Daffodil, Espresso and Mossy Meadow. We also have more than 3 layers, including 1 layer of vellum. With the “for you” sentiment it could also easily be given for Mother’s Day.

I spoiled myself with the purchase of the bundles when I found out it would be returning in next years catalog. This is the first time I have used it and I had to restrain myself from cutting out flowers in all the colors. Oh how I am going to love this set!!
You may notice a new watermark on these photos. After much prayer and consideration I will be changing the name of my blog, Instagram, Facebook business page and all online/social media accounts to be something that is a little more in line with my personality and real life. While I am a diva when it comes to my stamps, I am really a jeans and tee shirt kind of gal who loves Jesus and I want that to be my focus.
Be watching for the changes to happen over the next few weeks. I am very excited about the direction my life and business is going!

Halloween Treats

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have an adorable treat holder to share with you today. I don’t normally craft a lot for this holiday but this year the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper was too cute and I knew I wanted to ordert it. I am so excited to give these to some very special kids this weekend.
These cute treat holders are made using the new Pillow Box framelit in the Holiday catalog and I think they are adorable. It is the perfect size to hold a few treats. 
The boxes were crafted out of the paper and then decorated with the Home & Hearth window framelit, a punch art ghosts and some small pumpkins as an accent. I think the kids are going to love these!
I hope you are inspired by this fun project! Let me know you were here by leaving me some love in the form of a comment. You can subscribe to the blog and never miss another post!

ICS Blog Hop – Introducing the Holiday Catalog!

Hello Hoppers and welcome to the September edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. You may have hopped here from Amanda’s Blog or this could be your first stop. Either way, I am so glad to have you here.

 Today we are showcasing our favorite products from the just released 2015 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ Up! This year’s catalog is packed with so many amazing products – I want them all! If you don’t have a catalog yet and would like me to mail you one, just let me know!

One of my favorite bundles is the Jingle All the Way stamp set and matching Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. As soon as I saw it during the unveiling at Stampin’ Up! North American Convention in July, I knew it would be one of the first things I purchased.

 This stamp set includes 13 stamps and 3 coordinating edgelits so that you are able to make a variety of scenes on your cards, scrapbooks pages or projects. Once cut, the edgelits can be flipped over to be used in reverse and adds even more versatility to the set. I cannot wait to share some of the other ways I have been using this set with you in the coming weeks and months. It is a stand out for sure! Using the 4 different colors of cardstock for this card gave the project depth and dimension and I think really helps set the scene. I love the glitter effect for snow using the Dazzling Details underneath the sleigh.  You can find all of the supplies used for my card at the bottom of this post and you can purchase all of them at my online store.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Deb’s Blog and see her fantastic project! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Show me some love by leaving me a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!

Hugs and Happy Stampin’
