Leadership 2015: My Swap

Hello everyone! Today I will be sharing this swap with all my friends from the Creating Success Business Team. I am so excited to share, as we are exchanging 48 cards between all the ones who participated. Yes 48! And I made them between lessons, laundry, violin, piano, church, bedtime routines and dinner…anything else? Oh, yes I only left myself Monday AND Tuesday to make them! 

The sentiment comes from the new Occasions stamp set: Big On You
I embellished it with the Swallowtail Butterfly in the background in Soft Sky.
The Hardwood stamp was stamped on Strawberry Slush on the Very Vanilla card base. Cute!
And surely using my favorite punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punches and the Bitty Butterfly.

I love how big these stamp sets are..love them all!

Hope you are having a wonderful time…I surely am!
Thanks to you all for making one of my dreams possible. Being in one of Stampin'Up! inspiring conferences has been on my bucket list for years. Thanks you all!

Blessed Stampers Corner

I had a fabulous meeting with my team Blessed Stampers last week and I rejoice in seeing how all of them are so creative and also friendly.
God has been bringing amazing ladies to my team who are becoming more and more my friends too. Double blessing.

One of our events for the night was a challenge that will last till February 14th.
Each of my team members will be creating as many cards they can with this sketch I created using My Digital Studio. It is easy and so versatile. Here two of my samples I showed them.
Love that immediately they started to create…

Good Greetings Stamp set (exclusive)
Bow Builder Punch, Whisper White CS (4 1/4" x 5 1/2" final size)
Best day Ever Designer Series Paper (Free during Sale-a-bration)

Blushing Bride, Basic Black and Whisper White CS
Sweetheart Punch and scissors

Sketch is simple…but when we use our imaginations there is so much that can be done.

Be blessed today making simple blessings for others!
What truly matters is faith expressing itself through love.
Go love!

Paper Pumpkin Love & Treats Class!

This month we have been exploring ways to be ready and use our stash of leftovers from all our wonderful Paper Pumpkin kits.

I truly enjoyed this Pumpkin Challenge! I realized I owe you my wonderful stamp organization, I will come back with it after this week. I am so excited! I will be joining a bunch of amazing Stampin'Up! demonstrators for an amazing time learning and inspiring each other. I am ready to grow and expand. Pray for me!

Here my latest card made with some cute hearts I had waiting for me from one of the past Paper Pumpkin kits. These kits are so versatile and full of goodies!

THIS card was inspired by one of my best friends and fabulous sisters in Christ, Jessica A. This week my daughters received letters on the mail from her daughters. Oh, how we miss them. The cutest little 3 x 3 card was found inside one of the letters (my friend made it). It was for my big boy from her big boy….awwww!

Surely, I kept it (it has sentimental power!) and placed it by my window sill. Then it happened. I thought OH I can do THAAAT! So there you have it….sometimes you just need to CASE= Copy Everything Share All. Thanks Jess!

See photo below of the cutest 3 x 3 sent to my little man!

Bow Builder Punch Flowers

I love when I can find a different use for a fun punch.
While I was working with this punch the other day I found out I could 
easily make a flower out of the prongs for my bow. And I did!

I also opened my new Artisan Embellishing Kit to place a beautiful but simple background to my flower. The button is also from this pretty vintage kit.

I added one layer of Whisper White and place NO dimensionals on it as to let that flower take center stage. I think it deserves it. :) The Boho flower punch adds a beautiful touch to the flower.
Sentiment comes from Butterflies Basics…classic.

Below you can see the process to make this cute flower. Hope to see yours soon!

Sharing creative ideas is my joy indeed!
Stay tune on my Facebook group for some good Leadership event photos this weekend.

Creative Blessings,

Organize Tips: My Counter and Big Shot Dies

Today I decided to share with you my craft area (at this time!)
I moved from having a kitchen counter to a full room, to have only a closet -which I shared with my baby boy- and now the laundry (AKA My craft space).

Here is my stamps and ink spot in a good day (seems I was not stamping that day!)
is cleeean!

My long counter space were you see I keep my calendar, tools (including the Big Shot)
, and a few pictures.

Here I am sharing how I keep my Big Shot items so far.
My framelits are on the bottom green basket (dollar store)
Magnetic Platform and acrylics -on the side- and Big Dies on the second.
Is truly easy to reach and place back in place.

This is how I organize my framelits alphabetically. 
I also keep wax paper behind the last one for those intricate framelits.

Here how I keep my regular size Big Shot Dies on the bottom. I highlight their names for easy reach with Sharpies. The second up has all my embossing folders on that cute dollar store blue basket. 

How do you keep your Big Shot and Big Shot dies?
Share below….everyone has their own style. This has been working for me for a while.
Next Monday I will show you some of my drawers, punches and embellishments. Ok!?

Separate the Date and come make Valentines with me.
Friday February 6th I will be hosting two classes on how to make these super cute Valentines.
Stay tune for more details this week….4:30PM and 6:30PM.

Check out what a wonderful kit we will be making at our Paper Pumpkin class! Yay! 
Again separate the date February 6th!

Creative Blessings!

With Sympathy...

A sweet friend lost a close member of her family….
My heart ached as soon as I heard the news…
Sometimes, there is no words…just a loving gesture.

I mailed this.

Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate , Basic Gray and Whisper White Cardstock
Dazzling Diamond

I love the smoky slate background. 
Have a beautiful weekend resting in His love. 
Comfort those who mourn, never stop loving because love never fails.

Will stay in touch indeed!

Butterflies Basics and a Friendship Swap

I will be hosting my first ever local swap with all my friends and customers.

This will take place coming next Saturday February 14th at 9:30am at my studio.

Would you like to be part of it?

Contact me here and reserve your spot. You can participate if out of town too!

Here is a sample of a swap I created to show to my sweet ladies.
Butterflies Basic Bundle  (stamp and frame lit)
SAB-Best Dad Ever (background flowers)
SAB-Best Day Ever Designer Deries Paper
Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush
Ink Pads: Memento Ink Black, Coastal Cabana, 
Basic Rhinestones and Sponging with Crush Curry (the banner)

Below is the card that inspired me…it is in the Sale-a-Bration catalog
Instead of placing a circle in the middle I placed the butterfly. 
So even our catalogs are great inspiration to start.

Tomorrow I will show you another cute sample with this stamp set and butterflies. 
Come back again…thanks for your visit and your encouraging comments. 

You are my blessings,

Crazy for You

I missed a sweet friend last week, couldn't reach her by phone so I made her this simple card.
Remember yesterday I said I'm in a "simple card" moment…..I'm still enjoying that. LOL!

It is very simple to make this card.
4" x 8" card base, fold in half
3 3/4" x 3/4' Very Vanilla layer
Stamp the flower from Crazy about you with Daffodil Delight on the Very Vanilla and 
punch with the Scallop Circle Punch
Die Cute "You" with the new XXX framelits
Adhere with Tombow Adhesive (you), and the punched flower with a dimensional.
Add a basic rhinestone to the center.

Have you stopped by the Union County Public Library these days?
I am having a fun display of some of my art created with Cardstock, paper, ink and stamps 
till the first week of February. Check the program I will be presenting coming February 3rd and 5th.

The graphic you see there I made on My Digital Studio 
with some cool information from the Greeting Cards Association.

These are after Christmas for sure….interesting that is followed by Valentine's!
Ready to make some Valentines. Join my Feb3, 5th or 6th!!! 
The February 6th one will be at my studio 4PM and 6:30PM slots. 
Share the Love Treat Bags class! Photos coming here soon!

February 3rd I will be making Valentines with Mothers and Daughter at the Library.

February 5th I will be giving every attendee a Taste of Stamping with these cute projects. Call the library and RSVP. (570) 523-1172

So hoping you join me….

Even if others don't see your beauty, HE sees you. You were made to soar.
Soar in whatever the Lord puts in your hands and keep bringing praise to His name.

Pumpkin Challenge: Simple cards

How simple can you go with a card?
I'm not sure, but lately simple cards call my attention. I love all kinds of cards, but I think I go into simplicity when my agenda is super busy, as in the last weeks.

Next week I will be going to Leadership Conference and I can't wait. What a blessing and privilege to ENJOY such a treat. 

Check out what came out of my leftovers basket from My Paper Pumpkin. I already had this card base cut out and I started trying different backgrounds. Eh!?

Simple but pretty…

What kinds of cards you like?
I used the new Butterflies Framelits to die cut that opening a few days back. It felt as if it was calling me to be used. Card base is Hello Honey, the background is a card base from a past kit and the new Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

Love the colors!

Visit My Pumpkin Challenge today and check what heather, Boni, Cathy and Lisa made today. Loving My Paper Pumpkin always…simple or intricate…is all beautiful!

Creative Blessings!

Purse Gift Card

Tomorrow at 3PM join me at Milton Public Library to create these cute Gift card holders.
You need to call the Library to sign up. :)
I love to share with crafters and non crafters alike! It is a time of refreshing and fun.

The For You stamp set comes from Chalk Talk…always a classic!

Love the colors in this beautiful DSP Sweet
Lost Lagoon, Crisp Cantaloupe, Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry
Flower in the center is from the Petal Potpourri stamp set.

I thought I could share a simple card I made with one of the Sale-A-bration FREE stamp sets.
Best Day Ever….the paper is also FREE when you purchase $50 in products. 

Colors here are Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Best Day Ever DSP and Hello Honey

Don't you love the background. Feels like that Bokeh technique photographers use. 
I used those to form flowers with a stem on the main image. Check them out!
The beautiful ribbon is part of SAB free products too. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT in the Occasions Catalog?

What a wonderful time to enter the hobby of stamping…I joined Stampin"Up!during a SAB (without even knowing!) and it's been now almost 5 years. What a blessing Stampin'UP! has been in my life. 

This weekend was packed fun for me…I had a Friday crop at the library, Saturday Annual Breakfast and SAB kick off with my sweet stamping friends and Sunday Blessed Stampers meeting.
As soon I can I will be showing you the cute things we created together. Love creating together!

Creative Blessings!
DONT FORGET to check Tuesdays Weekly Deals tomorrow morning! (well on Tuesday!)
