Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends and a Pattern Party!

Happy Happy Hawwwwwmp Day!  I do hope your week is going well!  I’ve been craft room rearranging and trying to tweak my layout a little while I finish the swap to the two new catalogs!

Yesterday, one of my teammates – Jaimie Babarczy – did a cool card for our Blog Hop.  She used the Create With Friends stamp set and made a totally awesome sentiment.  I loved it so much that…I sort of borrowed her idea!  I also used the Pattern Party DSP (sorry – it was just too perfect!) and the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Sneak Peek Thanks

Good morning and happy 4th-of-July-OBSERVED!  I am hoping you had a fun – and safe! – day yesterday!  And a day-off today!

We had a great time on Saturday evening with our friends – it was lovely to be able to SEE everyone’s face and be able to breath.  And give hugs!!  🙂  Then we spent the day working in the garden on Sunday – so…a super nice weekend all the way around!

My card today is a tiny little sneak peek from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog!  It’s a sweet little stamp set called…Nature’s Harvest.  And I love it SO much! This set – along with the uber-wunnermus Cork 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper – will be available to y’all on 3 Aug!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the weekend going?  We had rain yesterday – which we rather desperately needed.  And it cooled it down for a bit – sort of like a swamp cooler does – cooler AND more humid! 🙂  But the plants and veggies were all mostly glad for a drink – and I was glad they got one that I didn’t have to give them!

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this card, here ’tis! Oh – and I DID also share some sneak peeks of the goodies from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog that I got while we were in Maui.  Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Through it Together In Color!

Back home!  Pretty sure it’s Sunday.  Maybe??  Yep – jet lagged as all get out and I keep looking for the ocean outside my windows.

You MAY be surprised to learn that no matter WHICH window I look out – there is NO ocean.  At all.

Also?  No lazy river.  No gorgeous mountains.  Nope.  Just my pond! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Well – there are advantages to being home – like my fur-kid and my ponies!  All who were as happy to see me as I was to see them!

Now – my card today is actually…FIVE cards!  All the same design using the Daisy Garden background stamp set and the Through It Together stamp set.  I did one in all five 2021-2023 In Colors.  Take a look-see:
