Lemon lime twist with new Stampin' Up projects

The newest Stampin' Up catalog is here and I had to share one of the current In-Colors with you - lemon-lime!  At first I wasn't sure what I thought about it, but it has grown on me lol.  

So I must show you some of the great projects made with this color from Pinterest, along with a few of the new Stampin' Up products!!

I bet you can't decide which one you like the best -- All of these projects can be found on Pinterest so you can get more details on them there.  I anxiously sit here waiting for my Stampin' Up order to arrive so I can start playing with the new items!  You can place your order for the new Stampin' Up catalog items in new online store too!

But if you are like me, and want to have it all along with a discount, special demonstrator promotions, advance news, etc., you can join Stampin' Up and become a demonstrator with me:

Happy Mothers' day! Stampin' Up retiring products

Happy Mothers' Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, etc. out there! Even if you don't have human children, you might be a furbaby mother, and that counts too!  A little present for you above :-)

Actually, it is the gift I sent my mother this week, along with a special card I made her.

Since my mother likes Audrey Hepburn, I used a Hero Arts stamp for her card.  There is a combination of mostly Stampin' Up products on the card.  There is only until the end of the month to purchase retiring products from the Stampin' Up catalogs, so you will want to get them now in my online store!

You can check out the Eastern Palace Suite that will be in the new Stampin' Up catalog in my online store too:

Hope you have a great Mother's Day - we are going to a buffet dinner - yummy and I think I might hear from both of my sons too...

May blog hop - Mother's Day project

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is Mother’s Day/florals.  Here is my project:

 I used the Beautiful You stamp set, and instead of just a Mother’s Day card, I had some pretty little frames, so I designed an insert for it. I plan on printing off the greeting, Happy Mother’s Day, since I can use my laptop to make it just the right size for the frame that way.  Here are a couple more pictures of it:

You can get all of the Stampin’ Up products I used in my online store:
These items will only be available until the end of this month, since the current Stampin’ Up catalogs will be retiring!

The next blog you will hop to is:

Enjoy her awesome project and the rest of the bloggers' designs as well, and thanks for stopping by!

Craft room update on dresser

I have been busy with Stampin' Up's end of the year promotions, most recently that the retirement list is out -- you can see the list in my online store, ( and the final day for items on it is May 31.  So if there are any products you must have, this is the time to purchase them.  There will be a few price increases too...So in-between re-arranging my craft room and a visit over Easter from my oldest son from N.C., it has been busy.  Did you have a visit from the Easter bunny?!

While working in my craft room, I realize I never posted the final pictures of my large dresser that I made over in white shabby chic back in 2011. The dresser originally looked like this:

Back in August 2011, I made the dresser over so it matched my craft room, which is white and light blue shabby chic and you can see posts about the distressing process (  And now it looks like this:

Did you see the first picture at the beginning of this post?  It's a little french label that I got off of The Graphic Fairy and I rubbed it with light blue chalk and mounted it on black paper so it would match my craft room theme!

You can read my other postings back in August 2011 where I also shared my makeovers of other items for my craft room as well as items I used to complete and decorate my room.

April blog hop - dragonflies!

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!   Our blog hop theme this month is springtime, and there always seem to be more weddings at this time of the year!  My niece got married last month and in addition to making her one of my special photo/scrapbook albums and a wedding card (last month’s blog hop card), I am making them a set of matching cards in their wedding colors, which were pool party and white.  Here is one of the cards (the satin behind the card is what I will use to cover the scrapbook):   


The Stampin’ Up products I used were:
Black, white, and pool party cardstock
Chase Your Dreams stamp set
Detailed Dragonfly thinlits die
White metallic sequins
Subtle designer series paper pack
Wink of stella/clear

Last day to get free Stampin' Up items from SAB

Just a reminder that today, March 31st, is the last day of the Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration offer where you get a free product for each $50 you order. Check it out in my online store:

Also wanted to share another clogging dance girl card (Prima doll stamps) - I make the dancer in an outfit that matches the outfit we wear in our dance numbers.  

I was glad in my collection of envelopes that I had one to match the bright yellow shirt!  Each one of us wore a different bright color - I bet the audience had no problem seeing us!

We danced to Shake It Off (Taylor Swift) in one dance number and wore really fun bright colored tops, so I had to use that idea in my card (which I gave to our teacher):

I love all the sparkly bling on the card!

Don't forget to check out the Sale-A-Bration products in my online store, OK?
