Good morning and Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. Ours is…going! 🤷♀️🤷♀️
One of the new suites coming on 5 Jan 2023 – in the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog – is called By The Bay – and it’s one that caused a breakout of ooohing and ahhhing by pretty much the entire room at our OnStage event in Jacksonville! So – it’s been “burning a hole” in my pocket, as it were. Today – I pulled it out! Well – technically YESTERDAY, but…you know what I mean! I used the Seaside Bay bundle and By The Bay Specialty DSP to make a very cool Triple Diamond Step Fun Fold. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all and happy Saturday! Hope you’ve got something fun planned?? As I write this on Friday evening, we’re watching for rain overnight so…that’ll be good for catalog stuffing and…pre-order-opening! 🙂 Now you know what’s on MY agenda, right?!
AND – I’ll also be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel – I’ve got a fun…fold for you that is ALSO a sneak peek into a new goody from the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog! Take a Sneaky Peek!
Good morning and…Happy Friday! It’s the 2nd of December – which means that Christmas is ON! Three weeks from tomorrow is…Christmas Eve!! 😳😳😳 Where did 2022 go??
My card today is a fun fold – that I blatantly stole from my friend – teammate and downline – Tara Carpenter (at TarabethStamps)! It’s called a Reverse Easel and…it’s totally cool! Tara made one the other night and – I knew I needed to make one, too – and so…here ’tis! Mine is a Christmas card and it features the Sweet Candy Canes bundle and the wunnermus Decorated Pine Dies. Sweetest Christmas DSP brings ALL the traditional Christmas color! Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I hope your last few days of November 2022 are going well! Mine are – even though I am having trouble coming to terms with the fact that it’s already practically Christmas again! Seriously – where IS the time going?!? 😳😳😳
With Thanksgiving in the rear view – it’s time to really focus on Christmas! Well – until the Jan – Apr 2023 Pre-Order starts on Thursday – then – you’ll start to see some projects with THOSE new goodies! 😉 To that end – I pulled out the Merriest Moments stamp set and made a simple and easy Christmas card for you today! Take a look-see:
Good morning! It’s Monday and back to work!! And – isn’t this Cyber Monday or some such?!? Talk about gilding a sow’s ear! Nothing REALLY makes Monday all that great – not even the prospect of a sale, am I right?!? Even as a retiree – Monday isn’t my fave. 🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is a super easy one – featuring one of my fave bundles in the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – the Decorated with Happiness Bundle! Sadly – it’s NOT on the carryover list which means…its time with us is limited! 🙁 I have to have faith that Stampin’ Up! will bring us a pine bough die cut as wunnermus as THIS one is in a future holiday catalog! 🤞🤞🤞 Take a look-see:

Good Sunday morning, y’all! Hope your weekend is going well – mine has been a cooking frenzy. No – NOT Christmas cookies – not quite yet! Instead – I made another loaf of sourdough bread – the best recipe YET! It’s tangy like sourdough – but…soft like all our favorite sandwich breads! FINALLY – I found the right recipe! And – we smoked the turkey and got it prepped for sandwiches and turkey stock. The brisket is on the smoker for a few more hours so we can replenish the stash in the freezer. Sourdough crackers. Sourdough Blueberry Chocolate Chip muffins. Yes – the starter was a busy boy this weekend! 🙂 If you’re wanting to start a sourdough starter – or just looking for recipes – The Pantry Mama is an OUTSTANDING source!
And – I am totally sure that sourdough recipes is why you’re here, right?!? 😂😂
I am betting not so…let’s get going! My card today sports one of my favorite fun folds – an easel on a side (aka book!) fold card! I made it as an Anniversary card – using the Ringed with Nature Bundle and the new Dainty Delight bundle from the upcoming Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog. And – the paper I used is one you’ll be able to get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order – called Dandy Designs DSP! Take a look-see:

Good morning and Happy Saturday! Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend – and nice weather to do it! And…have something on the menu today besides leftovers?? 😉
I’m planning to go live at 7pm Eastern tonight – over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel – with a fun card for you – it’ll mix a little of this and a little of that, a little old, a little new….and I think you’ll like it! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, ya’ll – and happy Thanksgiving-eve! I hope that you’re all ready for the Big Day – or…have made your list so that you WILL be ready for the Big Day when said Big Day shows up tomorrow! I made my list and – with any luck! – will have it all done before we head to our friend’s house tomorrow afternoon! 🙂
My card today is another Sneak Peek from the upcoming Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog and it’s from the gorgeous Fancy Flora Suite! This one features TWO bundles that are meant to work together like a hand and a glove. The Two-Tone Flora and Something Fancy bundles are wunnermus and the coordinating Fancy Flora DSP is stunning. I’ve used nearly all the suite on this card, so…take a look-see:

Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Are you all ready for T-day?! Surprisingly, we bought a turkey on Saturday. I say surprisingly cuz…I mostly dislike turkey. But – I do like it smoked and I DO like smoked turkey BROTH! So…we’ll have both! I’ve still got a jar of my friend Julie’s garden veggies – and they are most excellent in smoked turkey soup! Therefore…turkey! Now – hopefully it’ll be thawed by Thursday! 😳😳😳
My card today is a pretty simple little number – a Fall-flavored thank you card from the Go To Greetings set – with some help from the pretty Hello Harvest bundle and Rustic Harvest DSP. Take a look-see!

Good morning and happy Sunday! I am climbing back in the saddle – it’s not FAST but…I’m getting there! 🙂 It was fun to be back with you for a YouTube video last night – I missed y’all! I hope if you were able to join me that you enjoyed the card and the sneaky peek!
Speaking of the card – the Dainty Delight bundle was the thing that grabbed my attention when I opened my Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog pre-order box on Friday when we got home! And – there’s the gorgeous Dainty Flowers DSP – which coordinates perfectly and will be FREE in the Jan – Feb 2023 Sale-a-Bration catalog when you make a qualifying purchase of $50 or more. I simply had to use it first! Take a look-see:
