So most of you know I haven’t been as consistent in my crafting as I normally am. I’ve been sick since October and in this time I’ve had a couple bouts of being very ill. It’s bothered me that I couldn’t craft like I normally do. This is a big outlet for my stress and well, that stress has kind of built up without any outlet to release it.

However, that being said, after this weekends events, I have decided to slow down and be present in the moment. So I am purposely taking the rest of this week off from my crafting. My mom is having her first eye surgery this week and will need my undivided attention for a couple days plus I am taking care of Jill, Parker and running people where they need to be. I am in no way complaining, just letting you know where I am at.

So until Monday, keep crafting and message me and let me know what you are creating. I’d love to see your work!

Occasions Unboxing

My second preorder from the Stampi Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog came early this week. I planned on unboxing it with you via Facebook Live on the 4th when the catalog went live but oops, I forgot! Sometimes life gets busy! 

But on a wonderful note, I have my video making area finally done and it’s working wonderfully! I can now make my own videos hands free!! Thanks to my son Parker for being my cameraman until now, but this stamper is ready to make more videos without having to have someone hold the camera.

Enjoy seeing all the new product. Now I have to try and put it all away.

Wishing You a Beautiful Day Card


Hello everyone! Our first card this year is from the Occasions 2017 Catalog.  I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock with the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper for this card and the Special Reason Clear-Mount Stamp Set.  I stamped the flower using Crumb Cake Classic Stamp Pad and the sentiment using Soft Suede Classic Stamp Pad.  I cut the flower out using the Stylish Frames Framelits Dies. I adhered everything down using my SNAIL Adhesive. (one of my favorite adhesives ever!!)  You can make this with me using the tutorial video below.  Enjoy!
