Paisley Mojo

Bonus post and inspiration today! I don’t normally post on a Tuesday but last night I was inspired by the sketch over at Mojo Monday and I decided to play along!

Pretty much every part of this card has me out of my comfort zone. First off, it’s square. That is something I never do. Secondly, these colors are not ones that I would normally put together. This DSP has been a fun stretch for me and I actually really like the Mint with the Navy and Razzleberry. The paisleys made it so easy to incorporate the color scheme and pulled the whole thing together for me!

June Inspiration Challenge from SSInkspiration

Summer is in full swing here in Idaho and this week’s inspiration challenge at SSInk is a perfect fit!

 #SSINKIC34-June

This is my card – using my favorite new set from the new catalog –

June SSINK IC34

I have only made a couple of projects with this set but I think it’s so fun and offers so much variety. The colors are pure summer and are something I would not have normally put together. I love them and will be using them again soon!

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.

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.

Thank you for stopping by today. I would love it if you would leave me a Blog Love in the format of a comment . I also encourage you to subscribe to my blog so that you can see all of my creations and have them delivered right to your inbox.

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.
Close up of the flower layers.
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!

Happy birthday TGIF!!!

Hello my stampin’ friends! Today we are celebrating TGIF Challenges 1st birthday! Isn’t that such an exciting milestone! 
So Happy Birthday to you!
Wishing you many more years of fun and creativity together!
This card features the departing In Colors Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey. They have been so much fun to work with the last 2 years and I know we will all miss them. We will also be saying goodbye to this very fun bird punch. I have loved this punch and will probably hold onto mine for personal use!!

Royal Butterflies

Hello friends! I am so excited to have a card to share with you today! I have not been blogging nearly enough these past few weeks!
This week at Stampin’ Royalty the challenge is to make something with butterflies. 
I love the butterfly thinlit and think it makes a good project great! I love the way they can be layered. The gold really compliments this mint and pink in this project. 
This was just one of the projects the attendees created at my Sale-A-Bration Celebration last night. We had so much fun together playing silly games, stamping and eating yummy treats!

Wonderful Words Challenge

Happy Weekend everyone! I am excited for the gorgeous spring weather we are having here today. It is time to break out the BBQ!
This week over at Stampin’ Royalty the challenge is to create a project where the words or sentiment are the main focus. 
Here is what I came up with!


I love the idea of different words being the layer on this cake. It really makes for a fun and unique birthday card. Of course I wanted to use the 2014-2016 In Colors since they will be leaving us soon. I sure am going to miss Blackberry Bliss!
