Good morning everyone and welcome to a fun new blog hop! It’s the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see! This’ll be a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!! Whoo-hoo!
Now – as you might know…recall…remember…just be hearing about now!…the Perfect Partners promotion is ending on 30 Sept (which is…SOON!). That means your chance to pick up the cool die sets that coordinate with some favorites from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini and the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog will be…going away! I decided this would be a good time to play with the Tree Trimming Dies – this one coordinates with the Trimming the Tree set from the Annual Catalog. And I paired it up with the stunning and elegant Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:

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!

Good Friday morning, y’all! Before we get going – I REALLY want to make sure that you see the AMAZEBALLS Joining Special that will be kicking off next week on the 3rd! It’s a great time to join the team (well – it’s ALWAYS a great time, but this is even more great!) – with the BONUS of a whole slew of free 2022-2024 In Color goodies ON TOP of your Starter Kit! So…be SURE to read all about it down below, okay? 😉
My card today is a cool fun fold – called a Double Box fold – that I first saw on Carol Buckalew’s blog site! She did an amazing card using the Nature’s Prints bundle. I decided to try the fold – but showcase the Tea Boutique suite, with the Cup of Tea Bundle and fun Tea Boutique DSP (all of which will be available to you next week on the 3rd. Hmmm. The 3rd’s going to be a BIG DAY! Take a look-see:

Happy Half-way-thru-the-weekend, y’all! Hope yours is going well so far. We were very productive yesterday – we raised the three massive trusses Wayne built for our new garden shed. Shed. Hmmm. Garage? Warehouse? Second home? It’s a little big, y’all – although, is there ever TOO big for a spot to keep all the paraphernalia that goes along with gardening?!? I will say no – and stick with that story! 😉
My card today is a another fun fold – and it’s really easy. It’s called a “W” fold (or an “M” fold, depending on your perspective!) and it’s really cool. This one uses the Framed Occasions stamp set (a new set – that I think is going to be a “fly-over” even though it shouldn’t be! – from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog) and the Design a Daydream DSP – which is one of the Host-Exclusive items in the new catalog. It also features the Celebrating You stamp set and Beautiful Shapes dies – both available right now in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini and BOTH carrying over! Take a look-see:

Good Tuesday! Hope your week is going well so far – we’re having Spring again. I see a green haze in the pastures – the weather is gorgeous. It’s like the little temper tantrum of the weekend never happened.
Georgia in March! 🤷♀️
My card today is a Joy Fold card that showcases the beautiful Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP and the coordinating Crane of Fortune Bundle from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog! I love it in it’s serene colors. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop – the LAST ONE OF 2021!! 😳😳😳 We’ve got a Theme challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
Our challenge this week was right up my alley! So I pulled out one of my fave folds and a new (and super pretty!) suite of goodies from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog (you can get it next TUESDAY!!). The Love & Happiness bundle – with the stunning Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder (which is a die set AND 3D Embossing Folder that works together!), plus some Sweet Talk DSP and a smidge of help from the Sweet Conversations stamp set…all came together on my Criss-Cross Fun Fold! Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy Tuesday! So…it’s that limbo week between Christmas and New Year. Wayne and I did a little half-tidy-up of the garden this morning – nothing huge. Pulled the tomato cages and teepees. And…what was in the mail? Yup, First SEED CATALOG of the year. That’s the gardening equivalent of stores already having the Valentine’s Day stuff on the shelf. Which they totally do. Is it any wonder that time is flying by?!? Sheesh!
But…getting to be time to start thinking about seed-starting! Whoo-hoo! I mean – if they’re going to make time fly, we might as well flap, huh? 😉
And – that catalog MIGHT be what drew me to the new Hello Ladybug stamp set with its bundled Ladybug Builder Punch. See what I’ve done here? Garden. Fly. Ladybug? 😉 You’ll be able to get this one in less than two weeks when the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog goes live on 4 Jan. Take a look-see:

Well – good Christmas Eve morning! I hope that you’re all ready for a relaxed and happy couple of days with friends and family.
AFTER you get all the last minute running around hecticraziness done today, of course!
Just think of all the calories you’re burning off TODAY – so that you can go for it TOMORROW!! (check out today’s Finn Fan Fix – we’re enjoying a cookie coma this morning!).
WAIT – check out the car…..never mind. Come back when you’re done…🤷♀️
So, if you were able to join me last yesterday for my YouTube Live, I appreciate you spending part of your Christmas Eve Eve with me. If not, but you’d like to watch the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!
