Pals Blog Hop! Out with the old

Blog HopHello Friends,

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to the May Pals Blog Hop. This is the first hop on our new day – the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Before we celebrate the release of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog next month, we want to take time to say goodbye to our favorite retiring products. This month we are showcasing projects that feature stamps or accessories that are retiring along with the 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog on June 4th.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Mary’s blog¬†on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog.


The ‘Love you to the Moon’ stamp set has been one of my very favorites and I was rather sad when I realized it wasn’t going to be in the new catalog.¬† It is such a diverse stamp set and I used it often.¬† The last chance to order this set is June 1 as it¬†is in the Occasions Catalog.

BLOG TODAY 1Wood Mount Stamp Set Р#133140  $24.95                       Clear Mount Stamp Set Р#133143  $17.95

Basic Black, Pink Piroutte and Whisper White¬†is my color combo choice.¬† LOVE it!¬† I love using Embossing Folders for the background.¬† The ‘Small Heart Punch’¬†is also retiring –¬†Item # 117193¬† $5.95

Rhinestone Jewels are the perfect addition for this card.  Black and White Chevron Ribbon gives it a classy look.

Don’t wait for a birthday to send a card to a family member or friend.¬† Nothing tells someone that you are thinking of them more than a handmade card!

The next stop is Donna at Craftcardmaker on the Pals Blog Hop!

Thanks for visiting and  I hope to see you next month.

Happy Birthday with Banners


Hello Friends,

Are you looking for a fun quick easy card to make for a birthday or any other occasion.¬† Gone are the days where you HAVE to sit at your craft table and spend hours coming up with an idea and then creating it.¬† You can create a number of these in a short time.¬† It’s a great way to use up the stash of paper you have just lying around…….I know you have some right ūüôā

I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the base and didn’t use any layering.¬† I stamped an image from the ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp set in Crumb Cake ink and then stamped the Happy Birthday image from the ‘Perfectly Penned’ stamp set in Early Espresso.

I used the Banner Framelits (the teeny size) and cut out several banners using the Neutrals Paper Stack and adhered them in a pattern.  I threaded a button with linen thread and added that to the card.  Imagine having everything cut out and ready to go Рyou can make a lot of cards in a short space of time.

Project Life – HOLD ME BACK!¬† I am so extremely excited about the announcement of Stampin’ Up! partnering with Becky Higgins to incorporate Project Life with our products.

Have a wonderful day!
