a sunshiny color combination - GDP042


This week Global Design Project Challenge #GDP042 is a layout challenge. I think these have become my favorite to do. All I need to do is pick a color combo and a stamp set! Have you tried a GDP layout challenge yet? You should join us this week!
The color combination that I chose today is full of sunshine! You can't help but to feel happy with these colors. (Maybe because it is the color of a Peach Bellini?? yum-e!)





Hopefully I have inspired you to get crafty (and indulge in a slushy cocktail). I think I will need to head over to Pinterest and figure out a DIY Peach Bellini with my Maragitaville! I may have to do some taste testing. If I find a good recipe I will be sure to share!

Have a sunshiny week!

beach ball punch art - TGIFC61


The end of the school year is here and that means that it is time to plan my daughters birthday party. When you look at this party invitation you may think that there is a type-o. No no ... the party is in August, nearly two months away.

Many of you are rolling your eyes and thinking yourselves that I am one of "those Moms". The organized Mom that always has her lipstick on and brings home made cookies to the bake sale. The show off or brown noser Mom? I assure you, I am often a hot mess with the best of them. Having a summer kido means that I plan the party a bit early so that we can give friends the invitations before we leave for summer break. Why not just do a text or Facebook invite? gasp .... I would loose my street cred! 

This year the birthday girls wants a Summer Splash Party. We will bust out the sprinkler and Slip & Slide for some back yard fun. 



I thought that I should blur my address and phone number from this photo. Then I realized that all you have to do is Google me. It is tough being so famous (wink).


I am also sharing this card for the TGIF Challenge #TGIFC61. The challenge this week was to CASE your favorite designer, challengers or winners from TGIF.
Denita Wright participated in #TGIFC60 last week and created a cute punch art card using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits as water. When I saw her project I was instantly inspired!! Thank-you Denita! 



Visit the TGIF Challenges site to see some amazing creations this week! You are welcome to join the fun any time! Get creative and share with us at TGIF! 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Perfectly wrapped Flower pot banner - GDP041


Greetings my friends! I am extra excited to share my project with you today. I created the perfect banner for a flower pot that I am gifting our neighbor. It took just a few minutes and it perfectly wrapped my gift!!! 


The new Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!© was "perfect" for my banner. (get it? perfectly, perfect). The large "Thanks" text and flowers from this set practically made the banner itself. I used the color combination from this weeks Global Design Project Challenge GDP041. Are they not perfect together? (I could not resist).




You will never believe this ... I walked the pot over to her house and left it on her door step to surprise her when she came home. We live in a cul-de-sac and are directly across from each other. By the time I walked from her house to mine, I forgot to text her and tell her that it was there (just to be sure she saw it). She did find the pot and sent me a text. When will this mommy brain thing end?!?!? lol

Click on over to the Global Design Project to see the creations with this fun new color combo. You are invited to play along this week! Check out the challenge details when you are there.

Have a perfect week everyone!

Playing with the new in colors - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop


Welcome to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! For the Stampin' Up! Facebook featured hop this week, the team will be sharing projects using exciting new products from the recently released annual catalogue. If you are a Canadian follower and would like a copy of the catalogue please contact me! View new products in my online store here.

One of my favorite things about getting a new catalogue is the new color collection. Each June Stampin' Up! releases 5 new colors. These colors will be available for two years. The colors are always on trend and irresistible! Take a look at the 2016-18 In Color Collection from Stampin' Up!.


I used these colors to do a watercolor wash and stamped with the Love & Affection stamp set to create 5 beautiful cards.












I am excited to see what the rest of the team has created! The only thing better than stampin' with new products is seeing new ideas! 

Next on the blog hop is Marissa Gun.

The Artisan Design Team will be back on June 30, 2016. Come back and visit any time!
