Hello Lovely, it's time for school!

Hi there!

Whoo before I get in to today's project, I'd like to tell you a little bit about my life. In the next few months, there's a good chance I'll not be able to do blog updates as frequently. I know, I know, hold your tears in. You see... I'm only a 21-year-old college student and if you have children or know anyone with children or if you live in a place with children (which everyone does), YOU know school is starting. I am among these hundreds of  thousands of back-pack-hauling students to return to my school. Now, You might be interested in this, so let's take a look at my life, because I'm SOO interesting. Lol, Not!

Here it goes: I live in Boise, Idaho. I was born and raised here. I'm in my 4th year at Boise State University. Yes, we have a blue turf. And, Yes, It's called the smurf turf. Haha. I'm an English Education major with a minor in Mathematics. Most people laugh at this because very rarely do the left and right brain work together like they do in me. I know, I'm so special. ;) I have this year and one more year of college left (woohoo) and afterwards I hope to be an English teacher at the high school level. Well... really I'd love to be a full time Stampin' Up! demonstrator but there's no degree in crafting. Because if there was, I would be majoring in that, haha.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you wonderful people know that I'll be attending school full time, and while I'll try my hardest to blog regularly, it may not happen. But I love you all and I promise you're still important to me. :)

By now you're all probably tired of hearing about me so let's see a project. This card is a CASE of a project we did at convention. I needed a card for Saturday Stampin' and I loved the project Stampin' Up! designed so I took that idea and changed it a little. Here's my card:

Stamp Sets: Hello Lovely, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit
Ink: Calypso Coral, Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy, Garden Green
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, This and That Designer Washi Tape

I know what you're thinking, "Wow, That's a lot of different ink colors." However, I think that they all work together to create a colorful and fun card.The washi tape was a last minute addition but it was so easy to put on and I think it added to the carefree grunge look of the card.

Anyway, if you want to purchase any of the supplies used to make this card, you can either let me know or you shop 24/7 in my online store HERE. Thanks for reading and I promise I'll try and get some blog posts up for you all. :)

Crazy for Cupcakes!

Hi everyone! It's time to share a new card with you. I made this card for my Inking Everything organized swap. I don't know about you, but I've definitely fallen head over heels for the cupcake trend that's happening these days. I just feel like I want to put cupcakes on all of my craft projects... and eat all the cupcakes I see on Pinterest ;) Dangerous, huh? So I guess I should apologize in advance if this card sparks your cupcake addiction. Let's take a look:

Stamp Sets: Create a Cupcake, Remembering Your Birthday
Card Stock: Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Ink: Rose Red, Strawberry Slush, Blushing  Bride
Accessories: Cupcake Builder punch, Dazzling Details

It's really unfortunate that you can't see the Dazzling Details very well in the picture. I put the DD on the sprinkles around the words and on the top cupcake. It gives those sprinkles a little shiny and sparkly dimension. It's SO cute, just take my word for it. ;) 

If you'd like to purchase any of the supplies used to make this card, you can contact me or you can shop 24/7 in my online store, HERE. Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Single Stamps

Woot! I know a lot of you are probably already thinking about Christmas cards for this year. Being the crazy people we are, we hand make a bajillion Christmas cards and gift tags and send them out to make people happy during the holidays. Some people don't need an entire stamp set for these cards or for their gift tags. Luckily, Stampin' Up! has solved that problem.

A new, holiday-themed collection of single stamps is now available! The holidays will be here before you know it, and these holiday-themed single stamps may be just what you, the budget-conscious stamper, need. There are eight different stamps to choose from, six of which coordinate with Framelits dies or punches. Let's see the stamps!

To get more detail on this stamp set, check out THIS new flyer. I hope you like them. I really think you will though. If you want to purchase any of these single stamps or any other Stampin' Up! stuff; you can contact me directly or you can shop 24/7 in my online store, HERE. Thanks for checking in! Talk to you soon.

New Photopolymer Stamp Set

Hello there. I have a new stamp set I'd like to tell you about today, it's another Photopolymer Stamp set! Yay! Really quickly, let's go through why the photopolymer stamp sets are so awesome:
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • I could go on, but I'll let you try them for yourself. 
Those are just the basics on why these stamps rock. Wanna see the new stamp set? I do! It's called "Another Thank You"
Look at that cute little diamond! To learn more, Check it out THIS flyer. Personally this is probably my favorite photopolymer stamp set we've had because I can see myself using it ALL the time. :)

If you want to purchase this stamp set or any other Stampin' Up! supplies, you can contact me directly or you can shop 24/7 in my online store, HERE. Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful day!
