Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card

This card was totally not my original idea, but I found it on the inter-webs.  Haha.  I got the idea from Dawn of DOStamping.  You can see her original idea here if you like: Dawn’s Blog. I loved your card so much!

Here’s my version:


Love this textured embossing folder called Hexagon.  I will say that I was corrected at my class by one of my fellow crafters.  She let me know (so kindly!!!) that indeed this was NOT a honeybee.  (I knew that, but thought I would go with it.)  She also said that this honeycomb is not correct either, the orientation is off a bit.  (I didn’t know that, but for our card purposes, I’m going with it!)

Hope you can get over the wrong-ness of this card and instead enjoy its beauty! haha

Joyfully Yours,



Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop-300x237Hi friends!  Thanks for joining me today on this lovely Spring blog hop with many other Stampin’ Up demonstrators around the globe.

I’ve decided to use a product that is not orderable at the moment, but will be shortly and I’m hoping to gain some interest in this one because it’s just perfect for the Easter holiday we have coming up soon.  These mini egg cartons are currently unavailable, but will be opening up to orders very shortly, on March 20.  They are item #142776 and are $8 for 8 cartons!  So fun!  I’m sure you’ll want to grab yours soon after that so you’ll have them in time to decorate for all your Easter festivities!

I found some cute little chocolate carrots in the bulk section of Wegman’s this week and decided to make a box to hold them.  Here it is:



And, here’s the inside.  I positioned my carrots in some faux soft suede dirt and some more burlap ribbon with the little bunny peeking from behind the back carrot.  Simple, but cute!


I hope you enjoyed my project!

Please follow along on the blog hop by checking out the list below.

SU Earning Alaska Blog Hop


Thanks for joining us on this blog hop.  All of us are Stampin’ Up demonstrators working hard to earn the trip of a lifetime to Alaska!  Woohoo!  We’re supposed to be showing you a Sale-a-bration item you can’t live without, but I know you want them ALL, so I decided to show you a way to earn that SAB item!  I’m having a play with one of my favorite bundles from the Occasions catalog: the SUCCULENTS!  By purchasing the Succulents Bundle (item #145184 $48.50) and the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (item #142778 $11), you have earned yourself another Sale-A-Bration item!

I have four cards to show you today using the Succulents Bundle and Designer Series Paper!  Enjoy!

Traditional Project Life Stampin’ Up Scrapbooking

Does that title sound sound like an oxymoron?  Traditional and Project Life don’t always go hand in hand.  But, I wanted to introduce my Scrapbook Club to a little taste of Project Life without stretching them too much.  So I use the cards in traditional 12×12 layouts.  I always think they make the pages look so put together without a lot of extra work.


This page features a retired set of cards called Love Story.  I love that they are black and white and that they can match about any color combo possible!

Hope you like my twist on Project Life!  You can find our latest Project Life Offerings on our website at: Project Life

March Proverbial Stampers Color and Sketch Challenge

I entered a challenge this month with the Proverbial Stampers.  Here was the challenge:

I know it says March 2013, but I promise you that it’s the current challenge.  Maybe it was wishful thinking to go back to 2013?!?!?  I have no idea!  Here is the card that I created with that challenge in mind.



I used the Carried Away Designer Series Paper that is being offered as one of the free offerings with any $50 order.  But, instead of using the new Balloon set, I pulled out this oldie but goodie from the annual catalog.

Hope you enjoy!

Joyfully Yours,
