Finding Inspiration Friday Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foil DSP
Hi Everyone,
Thanks for joining me today to share in my inspiration. I can't believe that Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration is ending in one more day! There are so many wonderful items to earn free too. I hope you have gotten all of yours from your wish list. One of the newer Sale-A-Bration items you can still earn is the Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper. This paper is gorgeous! There is silver and gold designs running through the glossy cardstock.

For my projects that I created for my stamping class, I wanted to show says to highlight the DSP with minimal stamping. I was really inspired by some projects I saw on Pinterest. I love the idea of coloring the paper using sponge daubers and sponge brayers

This project features Perfect Plum that has been covered with ink using the sponge brayer. Demonstrator Lisa Kmiec inspired this project.
This project was created using Daffodil Delight ink being applied with the Stampi…

Finding Inspiration Friday Brusho Class
Hi Everyone,
I am so glad you chose to stop by today! I am sharing some wonderful techniques from a Brusho class I recently held. Brusho is a new product being offered by Stampin' Up! The product isn't new out on the market, but Stampin' Up! designed colors that coordinate so well with their color themes. I held a specialty class for guests to come and play with my Brusho pigment powders. We created many projects using different techniques that I'd like to share. 

When you use the Brushopowders, you simply want to poke a hole in the lid of the container. Because the powder is so concentrated, you only need a little when working with it. For this wonderful medallion card, I used the medallion stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. I simply laid the mask on my Water Color paper. Then I sprinkled a little of the blue and yellow colors. Next, I spritzed over top with water and a stamping spritzer, and carefully lifted off th…

Memories & More Mondays  Sale-A-Bration and Memories
Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the beginning of the work week. Thanks for stopping in. Today I wanted to share about my love of theMemories & More Card kits offered by Stampin' Up! I have blogged about this before, but I can't even tell you how much I love the  Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card pack that is in the Sale-A-Bration catalog to earn for free! This set is so beautiful and can be used for memory keeping and card making. That's what makes the Memories & More cards so fantastic!

Here you can see how they are used in memory keeping. I like the different sizes that are included because they fit the different sized pockets in the memory keeping system. The cards have wonderful colors and sayings with floral and pattern designs to fit lots of occasions.


I have been an avid card maker for years. I could never quite get the hand of memory keeping until Stampin' Up! came out with Project Life with Becky Higg…

Finding Inspiration Friday Amazing You
Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Finding Inspiration Blog today. Every Friday, I look for inspiration in the world around me and in stamping to find that spark of creativity. Today I wanted to focus on the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration Stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies. The dies are so much fun to use, and you can use them in so many ways. On my project above, I used the new Brusho Crystal Colors and the Celebrate Thinlit for the main part of the card.




As you can see, these two Sale-A-Bration products are a must have. The flowers in the stamp set and the words that coordinate with the thinlits or work on their own as well. Sale-A-Bration lasts through the end of this month, so be sure to contact your demonstrator to get yours free. I'm happy to help if you don't have a demonstrator. Simply contact me for more information.

Well I'm getting even more inspired by this Sale-A-Bration duo, so I think I'll go and create more projects t…

Wonderful Wednesday Weekly Stamp Class

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Wonderful Wednesday blog today. Every Wednesday I share projects that I am sharing at my weekly stamp class. At class, I focus on a particular stamp set, paper, or coloring tools and accessories. This week, I wanted to highlight the Rose Wonder Stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits set. One of the things I love about this stamp set is the variety of ways you can color the images in the stamp set. 

One of the most popular ways to use the Rose Garden Thinlits is to highlight it as the focal point of the card. I used the Petal Burst Embossing folder and the Happy Birthday stamp from the stamp set. Daffodil Delight makes this birthday card happy. The splatter is a stamp out of the Touches of Texture Stamp set. I love that splatter stamp!

One thing I'm really liking is creating my own background for my card. This card was so fun to make. I used the leaves and flower from the Rose Wonder Stamp set and then used the most w…

Memories & More  Mondays


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another Memories & More Mondays where I share a bit about my love for memory keeping and stamping. Today my project takes me way back to when my youngest daughter was just a little one. She is now 17, so this is so retro. 
My project today uses the Memories & More 6" x 8" Variety Pocket Pagesand the Color Theory Memories & More card pack.

From the Memories & More pack, I used the summer cards. There are perfect cards and stickers to add so much fun to your layout. 

What I love best about my pages today is that I had both pages done is less than 30 minutes! Once I decided on which cards I wanted to use, the rest was super easy. I simply slipped cards into pockets and mounted my pictures onto the 4" x 6" cards. I added a little journal writing and done. Super quick and super easy.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any questions about Memories & More products, or any other stamping question…

Welcome to Blogging Friends

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to this month's Blogging Friends Blog Hop. It is an exciting hop this month because we get to share all about Sale-A-Bration. What could be more fun than to see many demonstrators sharing projects featuring the free products you can earn with a minimum purchase!
My sharing today features the free stamp set called Lots of Lavender. What I like about this stamp set is that it can be used for many occasions. Simply add your sentiment and it's perfect.

For my next projects, I used the new Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes to create a couple of cute cards. I absolutely love the Petal Passion DSP, so of course I used that as well.



There are so many wonderful choices of free Sale-A-Bration products. Stampin' Up! has also released 3 more Sale-A-Bration products to add to your must have list.

I hope you enjoy your visit to all the wonderful blogs. Be sure to comment and share.
