Egg-citing Things at Stampin' Up!


The pun in my title really doesn't have anything to do with all the commotion at Stampin' Up! today, unless you want to believe that the Easter Bunny came early!  Cuz. He kinda did!

If you know who Becky Higgins is, than you understand what the above photo means!  If you don't know who Becky Higgins is, then, you best get out from under your rock!  

And YES!  Stampin' Up! has truly teamed up with Project Life!!!  I seriously cannot tell you how completely excited I am about this.  

Watch out Shutterfly.  

This girlie has some pictures that I need to print!

Unless you know of an awesome home printer for my photos....(if you do, let me know!)

Want to know more about Project Life by Stampin' Up?  Becky Higgins has some great information on her Project Life blog.

Or simply watch this video - there are some great sneak peeks in it!




HOLD ON FOLKS!
I've got more great things for you this week!

That's right - there's more!!!

Every Tuesday Stampin' Up! has weekly deals....I'll show you those below.  You can click on the photo to learn more about each deal.  But, keep scrolling down after the photo....because - there's more yet!!!


My pick here is that Chevron Ribbon and the dies....Did you see the card I made for Manic Monday that included that ribbon?  Love it!

Ok...back to more news....
On Friday (this FRIDAY....GOOD FRIDAY!) Stampin' Up! will announce a Mystery Promotion!!!  This seems exciting to me - Even WE (demonstrators) don't know what this is about.  It will only be for 5 days tho, so be sure to stay tuned to my blog for further info.

There's more!  The RETIRED products list comes out on Monday!  (April 21st)  This year for the first time ever, both stamps AND accessories will be available only while supplies last!  Normally, we continue to produce stamps, but not this year....

Lastly!  The NEW (woo-hoo) Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog will be released June 1st.  If you would like a copy delivered to your door, please let me know.  I'll add you to my list, and you'll receive it in the mail.  Just don't push down the mailman in your excitement please.

Okay...chatter has ended - go forth and stamp!

Manic Monday week 14 - Kind and Cozy


Yep - it's time to cozy up again....after a temp of 82 on Saturday - and oh so heavenly I might add - we had SNOW yesterday!  As my mother said, "Well, that was a short summer"....  

Anyway.....I'm over the moon with this week's Manic Monday card. I'm gonna toot my own horn and say that it's just adorable.  



It's definitely one of my favorites!  Maybe because it contains all the things I love.  DSP.  Ribbon.  Buttons.  What's not to love!

Here's how this one came together:





Hope that you enjoyed it!

Regarding Dahlia - Card Idea


Somedays it's hard to come up with a new card idea, especially with a stamp that you use frequently in the same manner.

Take Regarding Dahlia for example.  I {LOVE} the flower in this stamp set.  Yet, it seems that every card I make with that flower looks relatively like the card I made the last time I used that flower!

So, I thought today, I'd go for a different look.  I didn't color the flower, it's not off to the side of the card. . . 

Today, I used it as a BACKGROUND!  And I love the way that it turned out.  

The bright colors help to add some pizzazz to the background so the card isn't overly dreary.  

This card also works for the challenge over at The Paper Players this week.  In fact, it works in more ways than one!  Can you find them all?

Happy Manic Monday to all of you - are you ready for another quick and easy handmade card?

This week we are going to create a bright, cheery, birthday card!  Perfect for the little love in my life that is about to turn 4 this week...


The only time consuming part of this card is the cutting of the sentiment banner.  And really - it's not that bad to cut at all.  Watch the video and you'll see how quick this Manic Monday card comes together.

Gettin' Geometrical!


Are you having a great weekend?  

I've been feeling quite inspired this weekend....love when I feel that way.  Got to help some of my BFF's with some graduation decorations and held a card class with a great group of women that I really enjoy seeing!

Today's card was inspired by one that I saw over on Betsy Veldman's blog.  I was just so in awe over it, and thought I should recreate it with Stampin' Up! stamps/paper.  



Isn't this a fun card?  I'm so pleased with the results - this is going to be one of the cards that will be in an upcoming fun folds class...I love it that much!  I can't wait to create more of these.

What do you think - wouldn't this be a fun one to receive in the mail??  Leave me some comment love, would ya?
