You + Me = Twitterpated

Hello Crafty Friends!  How was your Christmas?  I hope that it was filled with lots of love, laughter and joy.  We had a great Christmas.  Julian got way too many gifts (I'm partially to blame...hehe), but he's loving every one of them.

When I should have been wrapping all of the presents last weekend, I was crafting instead.  I couldn't help myself!  I got to play with new products in the 2015 Occasions Catalog, and, boy, did I have fun!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I couldn't resist making some Valentine's cards.  


Using the new You Plus Me Stamp Set and Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE!), I came up with this You Plus Me Twitterpated Card.  

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #126 that I pinned to my Sketches :: Cards Pinterest board a few weeks ago.  I LOVE this card design and will use it again and again.


My color scheme consists of Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red and Calypso Coral.  I just love these colors together.  They really pop!



Don't be afraid to use Basic Black as your card base.  Just line inside of your card with Whisper White Cardstock like I did.


I hope that you like this card and that I have inspired you to get started on your Valentine's cards too.  The 2015 Occasions Catalog goes live on January 6, 2015, so you don't have to wait too much longer to get your hands on these awesome new products.

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below even though you can't get the stamp set or paper until January 6th (sorry to be a tease!).  Order the other products you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Curvy Keepsake Reindeer Boxes

Hello, Crafty Friends!  I can hear you now..."But I thought you stopped blogging."  I won't go into a long explanation, but I'm back!  I'm still working full-time, but I feel like I have my "sea legs" now and have some time to blog again.  Am I crazy for diving back in?  YES!  But hopefully you will understand that I missed blogging, sharing my crafts, and mostly YOU!  

Going forward, I'll post as often as my life and schedule permit.  I can't say that I'll be able to blog weekly, just that I'll post when I have something to share, and I hope that's okay with you!

Now, are you ready for Christmas?  I've already made and sent out the Christmas cards and did all of the shopping, but now I just need to wrap the presents.   I also had time to make these adorable Curvy Keepsake Reindeer Boxes.  



I CASE'd my design from my fellow demonstrator, Maria Leon-Villanueva.  A few weeks ago, she shared her box on our Luv 2 Stamp Group Facebook page, and I couldn't wait to make some of my own!


Aren't they too cute?!  Using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies, these little boxes came together in minutes.


These little boxes are fun to give little goodies in all year long.  And you can make so much with them--bunnies for Easter, ghouls and goblins for Halloween, turkeys for Thanksgiving, and more!  On my Crafts :: All Occasions Pinterest page, I've pinned dozens of ideas.  Feel free to do the same.

In case you are wondering how I got his little "antlers" to stay on, I made a little fold at the bottom of the die cut leaf, put a Mini Glue Dot behind it, and stuck it on.  Easy breezy!  And there's still time to make some of your own.

You will find all of the supplies that I used to make these boxes listed below.  Order anytime!

Drop me a line and let me know how you've been.  I'd love to hear from you.  Really!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Happy Haunting for CCC15 & My Last Blog Post

Hi Crafty Friends!  I'm sure you've noticed that it's been a bit quiet around here for the past few weeks.  Well, there is a reason for that, but I'll get to that shortly.  For now, let's talk about this fun Halloween card I created for this week's Creative Challenge Club sketch CCC15!

Here's CCC15.


Here's my card!

It would have been very easy to make a card exactly like the sketch using the Autumn Accents Bigz Dies, but that wouldn't be any fun, I thought.  


So, I grabbed my Freaky Friends Stamp Set, Ghoulish Greetings Stamp Set, and Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper and let them be my muse!


I've been quite afraid to share my creations using my Stampin' Blendabilities, but for this challenge, I colored parts of my witch with them.  I finished her off by putting some stars overhead using the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks.  I even stenciled some stars on the inside as well.  So fun!



Don't you just love this Motley Monsters Suite (pp. 44-45 in the Holiday Catalog)?!  And to think that I never used to buy Halloween stamps and paper en masse, but both last year and this year, Stampin' Up! bowled me over with such cuteness.  I can't wait to play with this suite of products LOTS MORE!

What a great sketch!  I just love those Freaky Friends!  I had so much fun putting these fabulous products to use...finally!  

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

I hope you like this card and play along with us at the Creative Challenge Club!

This is My Last Blog Post

I will wrap up this post by letting you know that this is both my last day on the Creative Challenge Club Design Team and my last day blogging.  I will remain a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (unless an act of Congress or God see it otherwise!), and my online store will remain open for a little while longer, but this is my last post. 

I've had a blast blogging and sharing here with you, but there just aren't enough hours in a day.  I will miss it, but life calls.  

 Some of you may recall that I earned my master's degree in business administration (MBA) last spring.  Well, a wonderful job opportunity has come about, and I am so happy in my new role.  Exhausted but happy.  As hard as I have tried, I'm actually not that good at juggling being 1) a full-time employee, 2) a mom, and 3) a blogger (full-time or even part-time) all at the same time.    

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for the kind words you have shared with me during this journey!  They have meant so much to me!  

I hope the friendships will remain and that you will continue to visit this blog and search my archives for projects that will inspire your own creations.  (You can search by keyword or by category.)  This blog isn't going anywhere, so please continue to use it as a resource.

Just so you know, I will continue making cards for friends and family, but I will also resume my love of scrapbooking and finally dive into Project Life once and for all.  I've got quite a growing collection of stuff.  My fiancĂ© and son can't wait.

Thank you again for EVERYTHING you have given me, and I hope that I have given you something too.  It's been real.

Big hugs and lots of love.  Muah!  

Happy crafting!
