Finding What Works...

 
With a heavy heart, I have decided to "close" my Stampin' Up! business at the end of this month. I'll still share things I create and keep my Etsy shop open as well as accept custom orders, but as of March 30th I'll no longer sell Stampin' Up! I've realized I just can't keep up with it all, so I've decided to let somethings go so I can focus on myself & other endeavors. I just can't do it all, so I'm finding a new groove that works for me. Like I said, I'll still share projects I create, mostly via Instagram & Facebook, so be sure to follow me there, and occasionally I'll pop by here to share something new. Thank you for your loyalty all these years. I am deeply sad and will truly miss being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and leading classes, but am excited for what the future holds!

Christmas Cards with Project Life

Hey there friends! Are your halls all decked yet!? Everything is up, but I have yet to decorate our Christmas Tree. But it is at least out of the box and put together. :) She'll get decorated, eventually. Anyway, I'm excited you're here today, because I'm sharing a project created with my favorite products this Holiday Catalog.
The Hello December Project Life by Stampin' Up! Collection is SO beautiful! As soon as I flipped through all of the cards, I knew I wanted to make Christmas cards with these beauties. I wasted no time getting started once they came in, and I LOVE how they turned out. It was actually really hard to not turn all of the beautiful Project Life cards into handmade greeting cards, but I guess I just need to scoop up another set! I used the rest on another project I'll share soon--they're just so pretty!


I used a little twine & washi tape to spiff things up a bit, but the Project Life cards are the true stars of the show! I can't get enough of those fonts! I hope you enjoyed these beautiful cards. Be sure to scoop up your own in my online store. Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out the latest steals & deals below!

12 Dates of Christmas

Welcome friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was wonderful, and flew by far too quickly. I didn't get near as much done as I'd hoped, but I spent lots of time with family and decorating for Christmas instead. :) We even marked off our 1st date of Christmas for the year. Each year Lovely & I go on "12 Dates of Christmas". We do things like shop for the angel tree, watch Christmas movies, or decorate the tree. Of course I have to document this each year, and ironically enough on today's post I had our 12 Dates of Christmas Scrapbook layout to share, didn't even plan it that way!
Anyway, I used the Hello December Project Life Collection, my favorite Project Life by Stampin' Up! Collection to date, because it has the perfect card for documenting each date. 
Take a look at what I mean. 


Is the 12 Days of Christmas Project Life card not perfect for this layout?
I also used some of the Hello December Accessory Pack to embellish.
I love how it turned out!
Maybe this will inspire you to start your own 12 Dates of Christmas & document it.
 
Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

 
Happy Thanksgiving dear friends!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day with those you love most! 
 I have a couple more Thanksgiving projects to share with you today that I hope you'll love! 
First up is a fun Thanksgiving Scrapbook page.
 Aren't my nephews the cutest? ;)
I created this page with the Large Letters Alphabet, using the negative left over from this project.
I simply cut out the letters in order, so I could use the "trash" later. Worked out perfect!
I love the copper paired with the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Check out the products I used below, and be sure to keep scrolling for another project.
Next up is a bible journaling page created with the Paisleys and Posies Photopolymer Stamp Set.
I used that beautiful "thankful • grateful • blessed" stamp and the Copper Embossing Powder
to create this bible journaling entry. I love how it came together.
You'll notice that from the bottom up, each stamped image from the sentiment
is lighter than the next. I simply kept stamping, without reinking with Versamark.
The ink still took some embossing powder, just each one lighter, creating almost an ombre look.
I love how it turned out!

Paisleys, Petals, & Posies

Hey there! I hope you are having a great week, and are looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday. I am definitely excited about the yummy food, and spending time with loved ones. We have much to be grateful for, especially each other. Anyway, I'm excited to share two Thanksgiving cards with you today created using the Petals & Paisleys product suite. 
The first card gives us a look at the beautiful
Pretty Paisleys Textured Impressions Folder on our card base. 


 Is the Paisleys & Posies Bundle not so beautiful & elegant? It's perfect for Fall,
and would even work as a beautiful paisley pattern for Spring.
I'm quite obsessed with the copper as well! 
Take a look at the supplies used for this card, and be sure to keep scrolling for another card.
Next up, another card using these great products. 
I love how this card turned out,
and would you believe that the stamped paisley just turned out like that?
I didn't plan for it to come out "wrong" (I simply didn't place the stamp on the clear block properly),
but what a happy accident! The "thankful • grateful • blessed" stamp worked perfectly in that spot.
I topped things off with a Kraft Rope Trim Knot & copper paisley.
I love the elegance & simplicity of this card, yet it's very stunning with the copper accent!
Here's a look at the products I used to create this beauty.
