Pansy Patch Bay Window Card

I've discovered a new-to-me fun fold card - the Bay Window Card. It looks a bit intimidating but with the right measurements and my guidance I have no doubt that you can and will enjoy making some Bay Window Cards yourself. And, of course, everybody who receives one of these will be amazed at your creativity. And that is what it's all about, isn't it? Putting smiles on the faces of others!

Mother's Day Reflections

Screen Shot 2016-09-11 at 10.07.08 PM

My mom. The person who always reminded me that I AM A SURVIVOR!


Screen Shot 2016-09-11 at 10.07.08 PM

Andrea and Emily - the ones who call me MOM and my 2 greatest blessings.


Mother's Day. This is one of those days, I so often find myself reflecting on my life. My life with my mom. My life with friends and relatives who helped me become the person and the mom I am today. My life with my daughters past, present, and future. I don't always have things "figured out", but one thing I know for sure. I believe that we all want to do the best we can and be the best we can be. We may not always get it right, but with love in our hearts, we continue to learn and grow in the love and admiration we have for one another, and in doing so, we make a difference.

Mother's Day can be a day of joy and celebration and gratitude. But for many, it can be a hard day. I hope that we as women will love and support and nurture each other in whatever "mom role" we play. Whether we have children, step-children, children born in our hearts, nieces, nephews, or fur babies, let's celebrate each other. Whether our moms are physically present with us or have gone on to Heaven and continue to live in our hearts, let's be there for each other as we remember how our moms helped shape us. As women, let's lift each other up and celebrate each other, not just on Mother's Day but everyday. For we women have the power to make this world and the lives of others beautiful. I truly believe this. 

Happy Mother's Day!

My girls always know how to make me special. These are a few highlights from my Mother's Day Weekend with Emily and Andrea and Jon. My heart is happy and full when I am with these three.

BEST GIFT OF ALL...time together!




Congratulations, Emily!

Two weeks ago, our family celebrated our daughter & sister Emily. Emily and her Doctor of Physical Therapy classmates had their pinning ceremony (postponed from last year due to covid). While only students and staff could be at the in-person event, the rest of us watched virtually. What an exciting time for this class of 2022. Just 3 days later they all completed their 2nd year of DPT school. Now, they enter their 3rd and final year by doing 3 rounds of clinicals. We are so proud of Emily for how hard she has worked and all that she has accomplished and for the all-around good person that she is. 

This is the card I made for Emily to mark this special milestone. It features the beautiful new Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper along with a sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set. You can see the full Hand-Penned Suite Collection on pages 104-105 in our new Annual Catalog.

 

Be sure to download the Free Project Sheet so you can make this card too.

Cute & Functional Mini Backpack

Have I got an DARLING 3D project for you! I'm going to show you how to make a Mini Backpack in this Facebook Live Video Replay. It's oh, so cute, functional, and fun to make. This  Mini Backpack can be used for so many occasions - graduations, teacher appreciation day, embarking on a trip or new adventure, birthdays, Father's Day, and more. I'm going to use the Mini Backpack use see in my video demonstration gift for my niece. Avery is graduating high school this month and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall. I used OSU colors and will fill the main section of the backpack with various gift cards that I know a college student will enjoy. I'll put some mini sticky note pads in the front pocket. Then, I'll put the Mini Backpack in a clear cellophane bag and tie it up with a pretty bow and handmade tag. I think Avery will love the handmade touch I put on her graduation gift.

 

This is the Mini Backpack I received from my friend and SU! team member Tracy Dahling that inspired me to make my own Mini Backpacks for graduation gifts. Tracy had a package of flower shaped sticky notes & a chapstick in her backpack and chocolate mints in the front pocket.

Order your 2021-2022 Paper Shares Now

I just love this time of year. Spring is here, birds are chirping, the days are getting warmer, flowers are being planted, and I'm excitedly preparing for the launch of the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog on Tuesday, May 4th. This catalog is filled with amazing new products and some returning favorites. Whenever I get a new catalog, I tend to to do a quick overview then go back to take a closer look at the Stamps and Bundles and the Designer Series Papers. If you know me and my work, you know that I LOVE to work with Designer Series Papers. Yes, I am admittedly a paper addict. I want it all and can't wait to start planning how I'll use my new DSP in my classes, events, videos, Facebook Lives, and my Stampin' Peace Blog and Social Media Sites. 

I have found a very popular and budget-friendly way for you to enjoy all the different Designer Series Papers along with me. Enroll in one or both of my 2021-2022 Paper Shares! Deadline to register is Monday, May 3rd.

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".
