First Blizzard of 2018…WOW!

Hey everyone!

I am snowed in here in Chesapeake,VA! I can’t believe it! We used to go for years and never get any snow, and now we have had a big snowstorm every year for the last several years.

I got about a foot or so at my house. It is really beautiful, but I hate having to dig out of it and also being stuck in the house. The only good part is that it gives me lots of time to stamp!  I have made some really cute cards today that I will post soon. I just wanted to share some snow pics today.




As you can see, it is quite a bit of snow! I spent about 2 hours shoveling a path to my car.

If only I had a man in my life to do it for me!! LOL! Where are those Prince Charmings when you need them?

I am supposed to work tomorrow but I am hoping they will close so I won’t have to drive in this mess.


Well, I have to show you a few stamping ideas.  

Here is a really adorable set (Heart Happiness) that is great for Valentine’s Day or any special occasion for a loved one. One of the great things about this set is that it coordinates with the Stampin Up Sweet and Sassy Framelits so you don’t have to cut them out! I love that, plus you can cut several different ones out at a time.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all….hopefully you are having a great day. I am one of those single people that doesn’t really have any exciting plans for the day except stamping with the girls (which happens to be one of my favorite things to do!)!  I had a stamp class this morning and one of my awesome customers and friend (Lynn W) brought these adorable treats for everyone at the class so I had to share. The paper retired from Stampin Up a couple of years ago but you could easily copy the idea with the current papers.

She also made these treats for her granddaughter’s teachers and I am sure they loved them too. Who wouldn’t? I am so blessed to have such amazing customers like Lynn that are so thoughtful. I hope you have a wonderful day and if you are single, like me, then try to do something fun like stamping!



Valentine Sealed With Love

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to share a cute Valentine treat that I made using the Sealed With Love Bundle which you can find on pgs 14 and 15 in the Stampin Up Occasions Mini. I wanted to get this on here before Valentine’s Day so you can totally copy it if you like! I am doing this treat in my Feb classes next week so I hope all of my customers don’t mind me showing this ahead of time. I think they like to be surprised in class! LOL!




I made a video tutorial to show you step by step how I made it and it has all of the measurements on there too.

Sorry for the angle of this video. I got a new tripod and was trying it out and it looked fine while I was filming it but then when I uploaded it to youtube it was more slanted then on top like I wanted it to be but hopefully you still get the idea.

Fun Valentine Project!

I recently did a framed art Valentine/Wedding/Anniversary project. It makes a great gift. I got the idea from my friend Melissa. She made one similar and I had to copy it.  I used a 12×12 frame and the stamps from the Bloomin Love  set, Grateful Bunch and the Timeless Texture sets. It was a great class and everyone loved it!

Petal Cone Lollipop




Doesn't this remind you of an ice cream cone? It kind of makes me feel like summertime too! I made these treats for Valentine's Day but since they don't say Happy Valentine's Day on them, they can really be used for any time of the year as a nice treat to give to a friend.  They are super easy to make  as favors for a child's birthday party or classroom treats also. I used the Petal Cone die from the Stampin Up Occasions mini and the red glitter paper also in there. The cardstock is pretty in pink and so is the taffeta ribbon.  The friend heart stamp is from " I Heart Hearts" on pg 46 in the big catalog.

Featured demonstrator of the month…..part 1



I am starting a new thing this month. I wanted to encourage my downline to spread their wings a little so I am going to be featuring one of my downline each month as a demo of the month. They have to make several projects and submit them to me to be featured.  I am very proud to present my first featured demo of the month. Her name is Sandy Alexander and she is a fabulous stamper. I am so excited to have her as part of my downline. Here is her picture. You might have seen her a few days ago on my blog showing off the quilt purse she made at my house.






Here are a few of the awesome projects she has made lately….the first one is a Valentine treat bag made with the Big shot and the Top note die. I love the shabby chic look of this one. I will be showing more of her projects later in the week too.







The next one is a cute owl card that shows off our new polka dot embossing folder from the Occasions mini.







Here is a cute birthday card….sweet and simple.









I love this birdhouse card made with the new bird punch. She also used the pinking hearts border punch for the roof line.


Look at the fun we had at my downline meeting!



I had my downline meeting on Thursday night and we made some really cute projects. I brought a couple projects and several of the girls who came also brought projects. I got the idea for the bag tags from Patty Bennett. She made them at her group meeting and I thought it was a great idea so I copied her!  They got to pick a piece of designer paper from the huge pack of Sweetpea papers. That is a never ending slab of paper if you haven't had a chance to see it up close and personal! You can make so many things with just that one pack. We also used the sweetpea felt flowers to embellish the tags. Sorry the ribbon is kind of covering the second one.







Here is a sweet little notecard I made. I wanted to show the girls that neat flower technique. Too bad I forgot to remember to bring the brads and my hole punch!  I had to give them a homework assignment to go home and finish them! They didn't seem to mind too much!  The directions for the flower are on my Feb 9th post.













This was Niccole's Valentine gift box. It had a pack of sweethearts candy  inside. I included two photos so you could see the front and the top view. This would make a great treat for younger kids to give as Valentine's to their friends.













Here is Melissa's project from the top and the side. She made the box from the square scallop die in the Big Shot! How cute is that? Four Hershey's nuggets fit perfectly inside.



My friend Debbie did this card for our shoebox swap the other day. I just love it. It uses the Always set from the big catalog and the Sending Love designer paper. I don't know why I don't use this set more. It is one of my favorites.





Just can’t get enough of Vintage Vogue


This gorgeous card was made by my upline Faith for one of my swaps. I love the red and the kraft together. You could use this one as a Valentine card or an "anytime you want to say I love you" card.  I just love it.
