Butterfly Wishes
This gorgeous card was created by Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team member Teneale Williams. I love her blog! So many beautiful cards!

Butterflies Thinlits
The butterfly on Teneale's beautiful card was cut out with the Butterflies Thinlits die. Here is a helpful tutorial video on the use of the dies and the coordinating stamp set.

Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby!
Actually, babies would be more appropriate. So many babies being born lately to my children, nieces, their friends, my younger friends. I finally have to admit that I've entered the "grandparent generation".

Bow Builder Punch
You absolutely need to get this!! It's in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. It was really easy to use and you can create bows from any designer paper or cardstock. Definitely a "must have"

Watch this video to learn how easy it is to make your own custom bows.

Crafting on The Go

Boredom Buster
I love that my kids participate in so many wonderful activities. But while they are swimming, karate chopping and bowling, I am usually sitting and waiting. Sometimes I read. Sometimes I play on my phone. Sometimes I workout (not very often). But after a while...all of these things get old.

But Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! It's great! I can grab my box on the way out the door and everything I need to complete my craft is inside. With a unique kit every month, there is always something new and fresh to work on.

Crafting in Paradise
Today I brought my April Paper Pumpkin kit to my daughter's swim practice. Sitting poolside, with my kit and my drink on a perfect Spring day in Florida...this is crafting in paradise!

Hippity Hoppity - Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!
Hope your day was as Hippity-Hoppity as mine.

Today's Easter Bunny card features the Cheerful Critters Stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The little critters are so cute!!


  • The Bunny and Greeting are stamped in Memento Black ink. I like using the Memento Black because it doesn't smear.
  • The Hippity-Hoppity sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set. This stamp set is full of great greetings and sentiments...definitely a must have!!
  • The Bunny is colored in with Crumb Cake and Rose Red Markers.
  • The buttons are Daffodil Delight candy dots from the Brights package.
  • The Daffodil Delight textured paper was created with the Big Shot and Decorative Dots embossing folder. Embossing cardstock is a great way to add texture, interest and depth
  • Punch a scallop border on a strip of Rose Red cardstock and attach a strip DSP.
  • I love the Painted Blooms Designer Paper used in this card (stripe and polka dot). This is such a bright and cheery pack of paper.
  • The bow is tied with Daffodil Delight Seam Binding...One of the great things about Stampin' Up! is the color coordination.  The Daffodil Delight ribbon matches the Daffodil Delight paper perfectly!
