Everyone Needs A Little Love!

You want to know what I love about Stampin' Up?!  I LOVE seeing the faces that light up when they get something cute delivered via mail or in person.  Or even just seeing something fun online.  I love the fact that what I love to do can brighten someone's day and make someone smile.  The other day I did a workshop for my bestie and her friends.  I wanted them to have the chance to make something that could brighten someone's this is one of the projects we made...

Who doesn't need a little happy love sent their way?!  I know I could use some most days.  :-)  And I think THE BEST is that the stamp set we used here is called "Sunshine Sayings."

ColorsSmoky Slate, Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black (for stamping greeting)
CardstockSmoky Slate, Whisper White, Dapper Denim 
StampsSunshine Sayings, Gorgeous Grunge 
Accessories: 2016-2018 In Color Envelope Paper, Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Delicate White Doily, Linen Thread, Silver Sequin Trim, Affectionately Yours Washi Tape

So what do you think?  I hope if you got this in the mail or hand-delivered, that it would bring a smile to your face!  It would bring one to mine, in case anyone was looking for something to send me.  Hee.  :-)

For's all about the little details.  Love the little splatter over the flower that just adds a fun touch of texture.  And it's SO EASILY done with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set!  (Probably my most used stamp set of all time!)

I hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Don't forget...I HAVE A FABULOUS SPECIAL going on this month if you want to order any of the supplies to make this (or any other) project!!!

September Club Card...Or Is It?!

Hey!  Time for me to share the "card" we made at club this month!  I put that in quotations, because I have a fun little twist for you!  First is the card...

SO FUN, right?!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch from the new Holiday Catalog....along with the coordinating Christmas AND Halloween set! SO MUCH FUN!!!

Look how cute that Mummy is...with the little stamped (and punched out...the Cookie Cutter punch has a little bow punch too!) bow tie.  SO! FUN!!!

WELL....HERE IS MY LITTLE TWIST.  I did this card for club, but was kinda thinking that maybe a fun treat would be something they would want more?! (We also did a little decor piece.)'s the little can easily make this card into a treat pouch by just flipping it!!!  Check it out...

So now they could pick whatever they wanted to make!!!  For just cut off 1" on the right side of the card front.  Then...for the just tie the twine around the card front.

For the pouch...tie it around the whole card so it keeps the pouch closed.  (You could also staple it closed on the sides if desired.)

And could make that bow tie a fun hair bow also!  :-) LOVE IT!


And here they both are again...

Hope you enjoy this project!  Let me know if you have any questions!  Thanks so much for visiting!

It's A Golden Birthday...

One of my fave things to show is fun and unique ways to use your Stampin' Up! supplies.  I LOVE making cards, gift packaging, memory keeping, etc.  But how about to use them to decorate a cake?!  So fun, right?!  We celebrated a special GOLDEN birthday for my darling Sis-In-Law a few weeks ago.  A GOLDEN birthday needs a golden cake, right?!  My friend made this amazing cake and then I used some of my Stampin' Up! supplies to make a fun cake topper.  Why don't you let me know what you think!?!

The cake was gorgeous on it's own.  But add the little touches of gold glimmer--and it's over the top!

I had to have coordinating gift packaging...right?!  :-) So here you go...

Such a quick and easy way to wrap up a gift card!

Hope you enjoy these fun little ideas!  Let me know if you have any questions!  Thanks so much for visiting!
