Good morning from Colorado!  Hope you’re having a great weekend!

My card today is a clean and simple project for you featuring the new 2022-2024 In Colors, using the uber-cool new Alphabest stamp set with the bundled Best Label Punch.  And I added a little texture to the card with the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Reasons to Smile & Design A Daydream Card for a Friend

Happy Happy Hawwwwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

Stampin’ Up! Begin with a Dream on Split Card Textures

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is starting out well!  I’ll be headed out in a bit, I suspect – first day is really short so there’s not a need to hurry.

Which is good.  My hurry has done get up and gone!  I’m in slog mode! 😳  But – I am SO having Vietnamese for dinner at my fave restaurant in Huntsville tonight – so that is definitely something to look forward to!

Yeah – I hung the participle or something like that – sorry!  But it means I need to get typing before I start drooling on my keyboard! 😳

My card today was a chance to play with the new Split Card Textures dies – an a la carte (ie: stand-alone) die set in the new Annual Catalog.  I paired it with a host-exclusive set called Begin with a Dream.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled & Sending Smiles Note to Say Hello

Good morning and happy Memorial Day.  I hope you get to enjoy the day with your family and friends – and spend a moment or three thinking of the men and women who never came home.

I have an admin note for you!  For those of you who do join or plan to join my Zoom the Craftroom sessions – I’m officially canceling today’s session!!  Between the holiday and folks having plans – and my ever GROWING list of things to do between now and Saturday – let’s just call it a day, shall we??  And – so that you can plan your week and month – let’s go ahead and cancel all Zoom the Craftroom sessions between now and the 20 June session, okay?  I’ll be out of town for a couple of weeks and don’t know what the internet will support.  So…rather than have everyone wondering where I am….I’m making the decision now!  Sorry for any disappointment, y’all!  I’ll be back on the 20th, though, so hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – my card today is one that I really like.  It’s got pretty flowers & pops of color from the Sending Smiles bundle (a heavy favorite for me!!) atop black-and-white Perfectly Penciled DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Fish & A Wish Here For You Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hope you’ve had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend!  We’re getting ready to go to Colorado next weekend so…we’re busy!!  And, of course, we’ve been “shocking” our well.  Yes – it was a whole thing.  If you were on my video with me yesterday, you know what I’m talking about.  If not…well.  Hope you never have to shock your well.  🤦‍♀️

My card today uses a sweet little punch bundle called A Fish & A Wish.  What?  Haven’t seen it?  Haven’t heard of it?  It’s kind of a flyover set but it’s super cute and I really enjoyed working with it!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Best Day Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  We’re on the cusp of another weekend and…Mother’s Day!  Hope you did better than I did this year – I am fairly certain that the gift I sent will NOT be there in time.  I’d blame the Post Office (that’s pretty easy!) but…since I didn’t mail it until Wednesday…it’s all on me!  Hopefully she’ll give me a pass and will like it anyway! 🤦‍♀️

My card today reminds me of Maui.  When we were there last year, we went on a catamaran to go snorkeling.  On the way back to the marina – they shut off the engines and we went under sail for a while.  It.  Was.  Amazing.  And I want to do it again right now!!  Since that’s not going to happen any time soon – this fun fold card from the Let’s Set Sail bundle with a little “sunset” and “ocean” courtesy of the Hues of Happiness DSP will be the next best thing!  Take a look-see:

As soon as I saw the colors in the sketch, I knew I was going to be working with the Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP from the Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog.  Remember it?  It’s easy to forget the beautiful things in there when we’re in the throes of the excitement of a new catalog launch, right?!?  This pretty paper is gorgeous – and perfect with it’s coordinating Crane of Fortune bundle.  And..I pulled out a goody from the new catalog, too – the aptly named Fabulous Frames.  Take a look-see:
