Time flies

Hello my dear friends,

Life is going way too fast but today I found a breather to come post a few pics of the projects we made in my Flipbook/Explosion Box class last Saturday. We used the wonderful Scrappin Kit Christmas Lane which is found in our Holiday Mini catalog. Stampin' Up! comes with so many good ideas. Hope you like these and get inspired!!

We also used the Scallop Envelope Die and Real Red and Wild Wasabi buttons.

Word Play stamp set added the right touch to the center of the box inside and the Two Tags die
for the tag on the left hand side.

Hope to hear from you soon. I resolved to pace myself in the next months, so I won't be offering many classes at the moment, will continue with my clubs and hopefully keep posting more consistently. It's been a busy season in my life...God bless you tons during this Christmas season and always. Leave me your love with your comments. Visit my store at Surely you will find what you need for your next project. Consider buying it from my website!!

Big hug,
Jessica U.

One more turkey!!!

If everyday  we are to give thanks...then everyday is a good day to eat (or make) a turkey. The day before thanksgiving I decided to make a craft with my daughters. My oldest picked she wanted a here comes the owl punch, scallop punch and word window punch to help. Gobble, gobble, gobble...I had fun!! I used the spinner technique, so the turkey spins from one side of the card to the other. Funny!!!
Many Blessings!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Just came back from sharing with some awesome friends, the family God picked for us in Lubbock!! Thanks John, Jen, Sarah and rest of the crew for having us over today. It was a real blessing!! It's been a busy bee month, but little by little Il share all the cool stuff Ive been learning this last month. Yes!!! Is more than a month since my last post, soooryyy!! Just really focused on my clubs, classes, and blessed to have met so many creative friends in my last October class. Later this week Il share some pics of how was my October. For now, just a bit of inspiration (more like wanting to share) from a thankful heart. He has been good, His love endures forever. I have so much to be thankful for. Thank you Lord!!

Just getting creative with my wheel. I inked it well on my Old Olive Stamp pad, then "erased" some of the wording with a wipie  -thou you could use a Q-tip or your blender pen- and inked "Gratitude can transform common days" with a Tangerine Tango marker. I punched three circle from the Itty Bitty Punch and top it with the Itty Bitty buttons. Great match!
Stamp sets used: Awash with Flowers, Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel

Fall is here!!

I am so glad the cool weather is coming thru. Im also starting to feel the rush rush of the Holiday season aproaching, not good, hum! I am purposely going to slow down this year. :-) Let's stop and "smell the roses" and be determined to enjoy every moment God gives us to enjoy. He is good and His love endures forever. There is one very special lady in our church that we all love. She works soo hard in all the administrative things that have to be done and seems to me she is always there when I need her. So awesome!! I made this small gift for her last month. They gave us the opportunity to thank her for all she does so I made my very first Explosion Box. She loves Fall colors, so I grabbed some of my Fall Dsp from last year. (I kept it for something special) and made this. Hopefully I can make a nice tutorial on how to make this one after my October 22nd cards class. Check more info  Don't miss it!! Will be fun!

Anyway, here is my take on the explosion box. I sure hope she liked it (I think she did) :-D Leave me your love with your comments and visit my store HERE.

Is Time to say Thanks

Hi again!! Hope someone is actually reading my posts, lol!!! No comments yet. None in the lasts weeks. :-( I love your responses. Let me know if these ideas are inspiring you in some way or if there is a specific type of project you would like to see. Is easy to place a comment, just click on Post a comment at the bottom of my post and follow the instructions. :-) Anyway, does it happen to you that at times you have so many people to be thankful to that you have not enough time to create cards you wish to give them . Yikes!! I already thought of a few more I "owe" a thank you. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends around me with only one year in my current dusty, dry, WONDERFUL Lubbok, Texas. :-D Yeap! I love this place. Anyway, here a couple of thank you notes for a couple of amazing ladies God placed in my life. They simply ROCK!!

Cut two Top Note die cuts, one with cardstock and one in a coordinating Designer Series Paper. Score the DSP one @ 1 1/2" and fold down to reveal the opposite side of the paper. Adhere close to the edges of the front of your cardstock with your preferred adhesive. Tie a piece of ribbon to the front with or without a bow. For the inside cut a piece of 2" x 3 1/2" Very Vanilla CS and mat on a piece of 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" Pumpkin Pie (in this case). Stamp your piece of VV CS with your preferred stamp set and place a brad on the top holding a small piece of ribbon to pull. Hope you enjoy it.

I learned these ones from my fellow demonstrator and friend Renee Hobbie. You can see her sample HERE.
Thanks Renee!! I had fun making these ones.

Creative Friends

Hello!! I super need to share this with you today. God has been so good to me to put by my side ladies that are full of His creative power. I decide to download some cards some ladies from my Clubs gave me in the last weeks. I am in awe of their creativity. So today I honor them!! There names are Brandi Evans, Jennifer Bailey and Cindy Herbet. Thanks for blessing me with these my sweet friends. You made my day. God knew I needed a lift, and He sent you!!

This is from my wonderful friend Brandi Evans. First time stamping!! Can you believe it? She is awesome. My watermark says was created by me, but no, it was all her idea. These are from her first Stampin Up order. Im impressed!

These two are from my sweet sister Jen Bailey. She came one Saturday and started experimenting. Voila!! These came from her, aren't they amazing? She made me one with my initial. :-)

Last but not least, Cindy Herbet surprised me yesterday with a card during Club. I realized I could make a different watermark, so I did with hers. She has no idea how much it blessed me to know she was thinking of me. I so like "homemade" cards. I can't remember when was the last time I bought a card at the store. Haha!! You made my day my friend. Thanks Lord Jesus for amazing ladies surrounding me and encouraging on my journey. I am simply blessed!

Kindness matters

Hello my dear friends! Yikes! It's been a while I havent' post a thing. Sorry, life happens!! Anyway, Ive been creating in my downtime (ok, I dont really have a downtime, but I make it happen). Im in love with this sweet stamp set. Is a set of about 5 images that I believe you will totally like. The name is Kindness Matters. (Click on the link to see it) Check out my latest creations. The first is a bookmark using the TWO TAGS die and the BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES die. I incorporated the elegant images from Style Beautiful in both samples. The second is a card set I created for a special lady in my life. Her favorite color is white, so I had to be creative. :-) I had to try one with a bit of color though. That one I kept to myself. Hehe!!

Not long ago I felt like I did something wrong toward a sweet friend. Not intentionally but I believe I offended her. Feeling awful I made this card for her to apologize for my wrong doing. Indeed she forgave me. Uf! Here I share one of my favorite stamps: AWASH WITH FLOWERS. Seems like I can't put it down. With the help of my SQUARE LATTICE  embossing folder and my CRIMPER I made a combination of textures that I hope inspire you to create an array of flowers for those you made sad, or those you made happy.

Today is a good day to pursue peace, forgive those who hurt you, ask those you hurt to forgive you.

Forever again!!

Click on the picture to see full size :-)

Have mercy!! I keep brainstorming ideas with my new fave "Forever Young". In this one I decided to add some color with  SOFT SUEDE AND PEAR PIZAZZ Markers to the trunk and the leaves after I stamped it in EARLY EXPRESSO. Then I glued little punched dots-from the OWL PUNCH smaller circles- in CAJUN CRAZE cardstock. Still I kept adding more details so I look for my CRYSTAL EFFECTS and a round toothpick. I put just a little on top of each dot and also "crystalized" the flower with it. You have no idea how much I like this stamp set. :-)

Hoping you get all in the little things! Remember when things were simpler, cleaner, calmer...enjoy the little things of life and bring back the good memories. The ones that make you who you are.

Hostess Jar

Hello again!! Yesterday we had a wonderful time at my Open House with all my new club members. It was fun and refreshing to see them all having fun and exploring their catalogs and tools. Fun, fun!! Here is the jar I decorated for the Hostess to pick their hostess benefits month. :-) They all like it! I used the ornament punch, crystal effects and some pearls from a broken necklace to created the rose. The leaves are also the Ornament punch folded in half and passed diagonally thru the crimper. For the side flowers I used the scallop circle punch and the Boho blossoms punch. For the border I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch What do you think? Leave me you love with your comments and visit my store here.

Would love to hear from youuu,
Jessica U.
