Facebook Friday: Watercolor WIngs

Hello everybody! It's time for Facebook Friday!
This week I am showcasing one of my all time favorites- Watercolor Wings! It was VERY popular when it first came out. The framelits were actually on of the first things that ever went on significant backorder for Stampin' up. I remember it being such a huge seller! 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards. 


First up is a card with a very special surprise inside! 

Next is a box that holds a Little Debbie Lemon Cake

We're having to alter this project a bit- the butterfly framelits I used here have sold out since I created it! So, we're going to make flowers. I noted it on the PDF below. And, can you guess hoe I made the texture on them? Brusho!!!



They have all the products I used and measurements for each project

Waterfront- Stamp Club To Go Card

Hey everybody! Today is a very quick post! I want to share this month's Stamp Club To Go card! I used the very popular Waterfront set to create a card that could be, well, for anyone! 

The Waterfront stamp set allows you to create different picturesque scenes by layering different stamps together. It's quite addicting actually because the possibilities are endless! It pairs nicely with the Seaside Textures Embossing Folder. 


If you aren't familiar with my Stamp Club To Go, you can find all the details here. Basically, I make three different projects for the members in my clubs in turn for their monthly order. I mail all of them out after I receive their order. In their six month membership, they also receive "Stampin' Rewards" one of th months. (Thats FREE stuff of their choice! The most popular benefit is the high coveted spiral bound catalogs they receive in May. And, my custom coils arrived yesterday!! I'm ready to start binding them once they arrive in early May. If you'd like to join my Stamp Club To Go program, now is a great time! Check out my details page and send me an email. New clubs start in May!

Petal Palette Gift Tags

Hello everyone! I have a quick post today- I want to share some tags I made recently with the Petal Palette Bundle. 
These cuties were the little gift I put in al my Petals Palette Class to Go. I try to always include a little something in my class kits using the stamp set featured in the class. This one was so easy to do! I used a couple of circles and then the stamps from the set. The little flower and label were cut using Framelits from the Petals and More Thinlits which coordinate with the stamp set. 

The cookies are from Pepperidge Farm (found at Target.) I put the tags on them and sent them on their way. This time of the year, I have to find treats that won't melt- and that can be difficult! Bit, hopefully the cookies arrived safe and sound. 

My next class to go will have a treat as well! You can see it below:

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop: Retiring In Colors

Hello everyone and welcome to this month's Sweet Stampede Blog Hop! My wonderful team is once again coming together to provide you with lots of inspiration! This month's theme is the Retiring In Colors: Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo! You can see all of our In Color products here. Remember, these five colors are on a "while supplies last" basis! 

I chose to focus on Peekaboo Peach because it's my favorite retiring color (Flirty Flamingo is actually coming back as a Core Color, so that doesn't count!) 

Peekaboo Peach is a great orange- it's soft and light and not over powering. I'm not typically an orange person, but this one is so easy to use! I also choose to use the Watercolor Wings stamp set, which sadly, is also retiring! 

If you like Watercolor Wings, make sure to join me for Facebook Friday this week- I've got three more projects planned using this amazing set! 


 You can join my Facebook Group here. 

Ok, it's time to hop along to other wonderful ladies in the hop! Next up is Anne Marie!

Facebook Friday: My Favorite Retiring Products

Hello everybody! It's time for Facebook Friday! I look last week off for On Stage and it feels like FOREVER since the  last Facebook Friday! 

This week, I'm kicking off the Last Chance List (or Retired List) with some of my favorite retiring products. And boy are there a BUNCH! I'll spend time focusing on lots of them over the next few weeks. 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards. 
**Edited to add recording:

First up we have a cute card featuring the Grown With Love bundle. I adore this set and I just haven't had time to play with it, so it's still brand new to me! Time to ink it up! Another thing in this project that is retiring is the color Soft Sky. 

Next up, we've got the Mini Treat Bag Framelits (say it ain't so!!) and the Going Far stamp set. This project uses the Mini Treat bag to house a gift card. I thought with this sentiment, this would be a great graduation gift. 

And last, another gift card holder inspired by my tissue holder- what? Yep! The stamps are actually one I've used quite a bit- Badges and Banners. Oh, and the Best Badges punch is retiring too- Boo! 



They have all the products I used and measurements for each project 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($30 minimum) by 
Monday April 16nd, 2018 at  midnight,

Sweet Stampede Team Gifts- Yee Haw!

Hello everyone! today I want to show you a fun gift I made/purchased for my team members who attended On Stage. I pulled out a pretty old stamp set called Yee Haw. I don't keep many retired stamps, but this one I couldn't give up. And I thought it was perfect for this treat! 


I used the DSP from the Sweet Soiree collection. The color was perfect for my pink/black theme. I also used the banner from Banners for You in Basic Grey. The hat and sentiment are both from Yee Haw (retired.)

I ha to make quite a few! I had 1o downline with my in Ft. Worth but I had lots more spread out at the other locations and needed to mail them out because I wouldn't see them in person. So what do yo think is inside the Pizza Boxes? 


A personalized D Clear Block! I had them etched by Tamra at TaDaMoments on Etsy. 
Each block has our team logo. The blocks fit perfectly in the little Mini Pizza Boxes. 

 I sure do love this stamp set!! I am so glad I kept it! I need to use it more often!
If you are interested in joining my team the Sweet Stampede, we do lots of fun things together, like On Stage. And, as you can see, it doesn't matter that we don't all live in the same city! I celebrate my team members wherever they live!

If you join my team in April, you actually have access to the Sure Do Love You products AND the 2018-2019 In Color Ink Pads! I think having early access to products is one of the BEST perks of being a demonstrator. Check out my page here for more details .
