Big News!

Woo Hoo! I was notified by Stampin Up that I was selected as one of the 20 finalist for the Artisan Design Team! It is such an honor to have made it this far & I'm excited to find out who else made it! I am sure there will be some amazing entries on display at Convention! Can't wait to see them!

Speaking of Convention, how about a little peek at one of my convention swaps...

These are 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and I am making some custom size envelopes too. I LOVE the new In Colors so I did 3 variations with this card. Well thanks for reading my exciting news and taking a peek at my cards! It's been an exciting few days around here and I'm beat so I've gotta hit the hay. ;)

More Paper Pumpkin!

I used a bunch of my Paper Pumpkin stamps to make a card for my hubby. Next week we will be celebrating our 9th anniversary!

"Guy" cards are always challenging, especially for my sweetie. But I really liked how all these sentiments worked together and I think he will like it so mission accomplished!

Here are the other two projects my Paper Pumpkin Club members made...

Well thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

June Paper Pumpkin

Well this months Paper Pumpkin was a little challenging for me. The three colors they put together for this kit were just a bit off for my taste so I covered the mustardy color with the other elements in the kit and I was much happier with it! Anyway here is one of the cards my Paper Pumpkin club members will be making tomorrow night...
I love this new sentiment set called "A Dozen Thoughts"! It worked perfectly with this card. The cute little bees are from a new hostess set called "Postage Collection" which is so fabulous and totally worth hosting a party to get it, for free I might add! Anyway I gotta get back to getting the house in order for tomorrow. I took the girls to see Epic this morning so we are a bit behind...I 'll be back with more soon.

New Hexagon Punch

I Love the new hexagon punch! It makes creating banner tails super easy plus you can make other stuff like cute little arrows which seem to be very popular right now. Anyway let me show you how simple it is...

Easy peasy, right?

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're inspired to give this new punch a try!

Happy Birthday Grandma

Tomorrow is my Gramma's birthday! I was happy to have actually gotten her card out on time! It's ridiculous that I am so bad with actually sending out the cards I make. Anyway here is a peek at the card I made for Grams...

I used a couple retired products but other than that it's mostly new toys! If I haven't said it yet "Smoky Slate is just Uh-Mazing". I seriously want to use it on every project I've made lately. 
Anyway thanks for taking a peek at my card. ;) I hope to be back soon with more...

Inspired Thank You

I needed to make a gift card holder for the girls teacher & I was inspired by some cards Shelli had up on her blog today. While digging through the ridiculous mess I have created while making my display board projects I found the make n take kit we received at the SLC regionals & it was perfect for my project! Sad to see the 2 tags die & one of my favorite DSP's go but they paired perfectly with some new stuff to make something pretty for the teacher...

I totally stocked up on the rose trim too. I was really really really hoping it would carry over to the new catalog.(insert sad face) Anyway, thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps: Label Love, Notable Notions
Card stock: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla
Ink: Smoky Slate, Crisp Cantaloupe 
Punch: 5 Petal Flower
