I'm BACK!!!

I know I have been a bit out of it lately and haven't been posting much. Well this is why...
If you got to cuddle with this all day...would you do anything else?! :) This is my baby Madi! She is 4 months old now and we are finally starting to settle into some kind of schedule. She sleeps about 12 hours a night (and has for at least a month or so...FABULOUS!!!) and I feel human again!!! And...MY STAMP ROOM IS ALMOST DONE!!!! We are just waiting for counter tops now and I am starting to organize. I PROMISE I will share pictures when it is all done. It's looking BEAUTIFUL!!! Anyway...my sweet Madi and my sweet Kylie (my 5 year old) have been keeping me busy. And my stamping space under construction has limited my ability to stamp. But now that we have a schedule of sorts and my room is getting back to normal...I am BACK to my regularly scheduled program. I will be posting regularly and sharing all sorts of fun stuff with you! I recently got back from convention and seriously...it was A-MA-ZING!!! Actually something I am sharing with you today is a swap I took to convention. This was a swap I made for an upline's group meeting we had at convention. We do full cards, and we have lots of great stampers in our group. Here is my card...
A few pennants, some embossing with the Big Shot, some fun striped ribbon....what could be more fun?! The color combo is the NEW Pool Party, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake, and Chocolate Chip. IN LOVE!!!! Love the colors together! Here is some up-close detail...
I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to sharing with you again! Thanks for visiting!!! Hope you enjoy!!!

July Club Projects...

WOW! I can't believe it has been a month since I have posted!!! I actually have some things to show you!!! But let me just say...my crafting world is a bit crazy right now. My SWEET hubby is re-doing my craft room for me!!! Adding cabinets, more lighting, closet organizer, etc. (And let me be clear...when I say my hubby is doing it for me...I mean he is paying for it to be done for me. :) We aren't that handy around our house but we have a great contractor that is! :) hehe.) Anyway...I have had to COMPLETELY move out of my space...it's just an empty room right now!!! Crazy!!!! That means that these club projects that we did yesterday I planned weeks ago because I had to pack EVERYTHING away! Our Stampin' Up! convention is NEXT week so I had to plan all my swapping projects for that weeks ago also!!! And I am usually much more of a procrastinator than that!!! :)

Anyway...I will share pictures when everything is done. I am SO EXCITED to have it completed!!!! It's going to be FABULOUS!!! On to our club projects that we did last night...
We first made this card and I am kinda in love. There is something special about this card...I will show you in a minute. Love the color combo....Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder (NEW IN COLOR!!! So much has changed since I last posted!!!!), Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake. Do you notice that fun detail on the left side of the card. Here is a close-up...

It's a new border punch!!! Lace Border Punch!!! LOVE IT!!!! And then here is what is fun about the card...
The flower comes off and it's a clip that you can put in your hair, on a bag, on jewelry, whatever!!!! See....

What fun!!!! :) And to make it...all I did was use the handy dandy Big Shot to cut out a scallop strip of fabric with the Tasteful Trim die. Then just pleated it around a circle I cut out using the Circles #2 die and the Sticky Pages. Then added the felt circle and the clip to the back. Easy peasy!!! I LOVE this card and it would look so cute with any color combo. But LOVE the new flirtatious fabric!!!! Anyway...hope you enjoy!!!

Here is the other project...
Just a fun little treat bag for anyone you care about!!! I love the crumpled and crimped paper in the bag. Then fill with a fun treat, make a fun topper with the Top Note die and the NEW FABULOUS Pennant Die (makes the wonderful scallop center), and you are good to go!!! Hope you enjoy this!!!

Thanks so much for visiting! (If anyone does anymore!!!! :) ) I PROMISE I will have some fun things to share after convention and my room is done!!!! I will be posting regularly again in about a week and a half!!!!
