Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest Bundle Yes Please!
Hi Everyone,

This week on sharing bundles from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I wanted to focus on a bundle that has a coordinating punch. Bundles either have a framelit/thinlit die or punch. When purchased together, you get a 10% discount. That's great. Punches and dies make your projects so easy to create and also give a more high quality look to your project. Today I wanted to share samples from other demonstrators who participated in a bundle swap with me. Samples today come from the Lemon Zest Bundle. This is the perfect season for this bundle too. Enjoy.




As you can see, this is a fun bundle to craft with. It's the perfect fit for the long days of summer with swimming, picnicking, and BBQ. Check back again for more bundle sharing. Today is the last day for Bonus Days coupons as well as my July Hostess code.

Finding Inspiration Friday Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons  Baby Wipe Technique


Hi Everyone,
It's another wonderful Friday in the Pacific Northwest. We are getting closer to our record without rain. I'm praying for all the areas suffering from fires and hoping all are safe. It seems a perfect time go think about the cold and snow.
I am so inspired today by the baby wipe technique that seems to be making it's way to stampers. I love techniques that can give your stamping projects such a WOW! Today I am using the Colorful Seasons Stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits. These two can be purchased as a bundle at a 10% discount. Who doesn't love savings right?

There are so many creative things you can create with this bundle. There is also Designer Series Paper (DSP) that coordinate creating a great suite of products. I love that it carries you through all seasons, which makes this bundle a great buy. Here is a great video to share about the Color Theory Suite.

Craft Room Tour
Hi Everyone,
Recently I posted a blog about my stamping workshop room was under reorganization by my daughter's command. Well it is finished (for the most part) and I wanted to share how things turned out. It is simply part of my usual summer. I work in education and have about a month off in the summer. I clean out and reorganize places in my home that get cluttered and messy during the year when we are all so busy. My stamp room is no exception. Keeping up with my stamping classes while I work full time can make it hard to keep things organized. 
I hope you enjoy the tour of my craft room. I have had this room for close to 20 years. My husband and his brother converted our garage so we could move the laundry room, work room, and computer down here as well. I hope you enjoy.
My Stamping Workshop Room

Well there it is. I have to say that the best part of my room is the stamping counter with the drawers. This was in the dining area in my house as a built in desk and …

What better way to create beautiful project with ease, not to mention the great 10% discount when you purchase as a bundle. This week I wanted to share projects from other demonstrators who participated in the bundle swap with me and share cards created using the Coffee Cafe bundle.

One of the things I really like about this bundle is the sayings. I just love a great pun. My oldest daughter, Julianne always has a quick pun. I don't know how she thinks of them so quickly.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Eclectic Bundle Yes Please!
Hi Everyone,
Another wonderful Monday is upon us. I wanted to share some other great projects using the Stampin' Up! bundle Oh So Eclectic. What's great about this bundle is that not only is there are 10% discount when you purchase the bundle, there is the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper that coordinates as well. These samples are some of the swap cards I received from my recent bundle swap that I hosted. Enjoy.


The ease of bundles is so great. I am not a fan of fussy cutting, and creating dies to coordinate stamp sets is golden. It helps your projects look more professional and cut well. I remember many time fussy cutting and having my cards not look too great. Now, it's a snap. Come back next Monday to see more bundle swap cards. Let me know which project you like best.

Craft Room Overhaul Hi Everyone,
Well it certainly is time to get my craft room cleaned out and reorganized. My daughter, Sam really gets into organization from time to time and decided that I needed to get busy cleaning out and organizing the room differently. Well here are a couple of pictures to show you where I'm at. 

As you can see, my stamping table becomes the catch all as we clean. I have a large white cabinet that my daughter and I cleaned out and much of it landed on the table. I also have an open space under my prepping counter that had a tub full of large framed pictures of my daughters when they were young. I cleaned that out to now add another roll cart next to the one already there.

This picture shows you progress by my windows. There used to be a sofa table against the window and then I had my 2 drawer file cabinet in front of it. This took up a lot of room. I moved that table to the other side of the room to display catalogs and samples. Then I put my paper rack a…

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bundle Yes Please!

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another beautiful week! The weather here is wonderful, but I'm praying for the people in harms way of the awful fires that have been happening here in the west. My daughter sends handmade cards to firefighters battling the blazes. They come from all over the United States to help put out the wildfires.
In this year's annual catalog, there are 23 bundles. That means a 10% savings when you purchase the bundle. That includes the stamp set with a coordinating framelit set or punch. Stampin' Up! designs many coordinating sets which makes crafting so much easier. I recently hosted a bundle swap with other demonstrators. I wanted to share a few of the Wood Wordscards using the bundle. Enjoy.




 I have to say that the demonstrators who participated in the swap have put in 110% effort for their projects. They are all wonderful with showcasing the best of the bundles. I will continue to highlight some of the other b…
