Upline Inspiration

This adorable little "mini" berry basket on the left was inspired by Upline Jennifer Downey's adorable "mini" berry basket on the right. We made the BOO basket back in the fall at one of our downline team meetings. I had since put him away for next Halloween but I found him when looking for some Stampin' Up! dies in my cabinet. I pulled him out and he inspired the YUM basket we will be making in an upcoming class called Chicks, Chocolate, & Chatter. Thanks so much Jennifer for the much needed inspiration, you can see more of her creations by visiting

Purple Hearts

I have really enjoyed using the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set and Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies. Originally I wanted to make a monochromatic card using the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Die but I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to use Wisteria Wonder with Crumb Cake. What card is not complete until you use a little Gorgeous Grunge to add some fun to the background. I hope you like today's card. The Happy Day sentitment is from the Sale A Bration stamp set called Perfect Pairings. Remember, a $50 catalog purchase and this stamp set can be yours too..only until March 31!!! Stop back soon for more stampin'.

Flowering Fields

This was a pretty fun and simple card we made at my last card buffet. I really like this Sale A Bration stamp set called Flowering Fields. You can get this stamp set easy peasy, just by placing a $50 order. We stamped the flowers in the Tuxedo Black Momento pad and then colored the flowers with our Stampin' Write Markers. The Happy Birthday on the front of the card is from the stamp Set Sassy Salutations. That stamp set is a real go-to for me! I hope you enjoyed today's creation. Be sure to stop back soon.

My Valentine (well one of them)

This is one of my adorable nieces holding up the Valentine goodies we made for her teachers. We had a lot of fun making them together. She has always loved spending time in my craft room, which she often reminds me "is for girls only" LOL. I look forward to the day when her baby sista (as she calls her) Emma can join in on the fun. I will share some of Jamie's worldly wisdom with you: After she had stamped two of her cards with her right hand, she starts to stamp the last one with her left hand. I told her to stop and put the stamp in her right hand because she is right handed. She told me "no I am not, I am both handed" then she looks at me and asks if I know what that means. She said "that means I can do it with both hands". Soooo, both handed it is!! I hope you have a great Valentine's Day with family, friends, or your LOVE.
