ICS Blog Hop It's A Girl Thing

Welcome to the April 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "It's A Girl Thing", all things girlie. For me, flowers are my favorite girlie thing. I love treating myself to fresh flowers. I'm eagerly anticipating next month when I can plant lots of colorful flowers in my garden bed. All of the projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy the hop.

For this blog hop post, I chose to show a few of my favorite retiring In Colors - Bumblebee, Just Jade, and Magenta Madness - with an easy card layout and sentiments from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set.  I hope you love these bright, cheerful cards perfect for Easter and Mother's Day but many other occasions as well like birthday, thinking of you, and so much more.

I did a spontaneous Facebook Live on January 25th sharing "My Story". If you are interested in hearing the story of my Stampin' Up! journey, click on the link below.

 

I'm just a girl with a goal! I have been working towards another major milestone on my Stampin' Up! journey - $400,000 Career Sales. Wow! What a ride it's been. I had a goal of achieving this milestone by January 31st. I didn't quite make it, but am I sad? No. Why? Two Reasons: 1) I know it will happen, and 2) I still have so much to be grateful for including all the wonderful people I've met along my SU! journey, all the friends I've made, my previous accomplishments, and all the opportunities that are to come.

Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.
