Hello, I'm back

I've been missing in action with my Bloom quilt, which I have not finished. Yes, I got a little behind, so I was playing catch up with my applique blocks and pretty much did nothing else. They're done, but now I'm finishing up to quilt top. I haven't done machine quilting in a long time, and I have never done free motion quilting. So I have some practicing to do! I will post some pics soon of what I have competed.

Anyway, the new Stampin' UP! catalog is out, and I'm just waiting for my order. In the mean time, I'm playing around with My Paper Pumpkin kits. 



Here are a two cards I made with the May kit, Many Manly Occasions. Then I played around with the laser cut card bases and some of my stash of papers and stamps and I came up with these cards.




  • All About Everything stamp set (thank you gift from Paper Pumpkin)
  • Wildflower Fields DSP (retired)
  • Pop of Pink DSP
  • Inks - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo
  • Petite Petals punch
  • Candy dots (retired)
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Now I have some more cards to use for any occasion. I love these kits, sometimes it more fun to use alternate ideas. The June kit should be arriving any day, I can't wait. Here's the June kit video:



Take care and be crafty!

Stampin' UP! Sneak Peak ....

Hello again, another project share today. This time it's a sneak peak of one of the new stamp sets that will be available next month when Stampin' UP! launches the new catalog for 2016-2017.

I made a card with the Layering Love stamp set and Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (soon to be retired). Also shown is a gift bag with Pop of Pink Specialty Paper, which is also new and will be available in June.






More shares to come!

Thank you for stopping by.

New card share, Paper Pumpkin

Hello, I have a new card share today from April's Paper Pumpkin kit, Lovely Little Wreath, except I made Mother's Day cards instead of the wreath, I just haven't a chance to make the wreath yet. I made these cards with the stamps that were included in the kit and I used the English Garden Designer Series Paper. 


More cards with the Farmers Market Designer Series Papers and another card simply stamped on Whisper White card stock.




These cards came together quickly using the April kit stamps. As a subscriber, we also received a free stamp set, All about Everything. A gift to say thank you, Paper Pumpkin celebrated 3 years and shipped their one millionth kit! I'll be sharing more projects with those stamps within the next few days.

Thank you for visiting!

Out with the old ....


Yes, sorry to say but there are many Stampin' UP! favorites that are retiring. Here is one stamp set that is going away that I love, A Dozen Thoughts. Here are a few simple cards and tags I made with the stamps and the Botanical Gardens DSP, which will also not be available after May 31st. All the Designer Series Papers will be retiring, too.







Only a few weeks left ... you can view the retirement list here. The new Stampin' UP! catalog will be available June 1st. I'm looking forward to sharing some sneek peeks as soon as my order comes in. I'm getting excited to share the new colors, stamps and papers. Yay!
