Here are my February social media highlights! Follow me:



My February social was pretty quiet - but - it is because I was busy over at the Crafty Carrot Co. with our birthday collection month! It was a huge success and we had so much fun creating for our VIP members.

But first ... my shaker card!



I have used the Family Party Stamp Set. Have you joined fun over at the Crafty Carrot Co yet? If you shop | subscribe | or join our demonstrator team, before January 31, 2020, you will have access to our February weekly birthday card tutorials. And I will be featuring this stamp set! 


I joined the Fancy Friday Design Team back in November of 2015 after my two and a half year stretch on the Stampin' Up!© corporate Artisan Design team. In my five years with the Fancy Friday I have shared 43 blog hop posts!

So here is our special announcement .... 

We're shaking things up this year on the Fancy Friday Design Team! This will be our last official 'blog hop' because we're moving in a new direction!

We can't wait to have you around so any time you're inspired by our challenge, tag us in or use hashtag #stampinfancyfriday. Ok, it's time!

New Yeah!! - GDP223


A new year and a new decade ... New Yeah! I love January. It always welcomes a new perspective, a fresh beginning, and a feeling of determination and motivation! 

I have wanted to do a gratitude journal for some time and the new year was the perfect excuse to get crafty. Did you know that Stampin' Up! has mini journals for just $8.75 CAD?!

Item 149588

The Pressed Petals Journal is a spiral-bound journal with perforated pages that you can remove and use on card fronts or memory-keeping pages. Debossed cover.

* 24 sheets: 4 each of 6 designs
* 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Product colours: Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose, Very Vanilla



Adding a few paper layers and a little hand stamping made this gratitude journal come together in a snap.



Today I am creating for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP223 : 2020 Vision. Click over to the GDP and see what the rest of the design team is creating. We issue the challenge each Monday to our followers around the world. Get crafty and join us!


Wishing you all an awesome new year! Thank-you for visiting!

Christmas Color Challenge - #GDP221


It is almost here! Christmas is this week! Are you feeling ready? Christmas is low key for us this year. I have scaled back on things and my stress level is pretty low! Skipped the baking, mailing Christmas cards and newsletter (gasp, I know!) and purchased WAY less gifts! Some years you just can't do it all!

I am giving Christmas cards to our friends and family that I get to see this week. After all, I have a load of beautiful handmade cards that need to be shared! Here is one more Christmas card for 2019 ..

My card today is for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP221.
Visit the GDP to see what the rest of the design team has created!




Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays this week! I hope that you are surrounded by the ones you love and that you can find some time to take it all in, relax and enjoy!

Cheers!

No white challenge - Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Hellloooo my fancy friends! It is the final blog hop of 2019 and the final blog hop of the decade for the Fancy Friday design team! Our challenge today is "no white".

The paper crafting industry has been on a white trend for some time .. I myself love this trend! A couple of months ago, Cindy Schuster from our Fancy Friday team, was brainstorming ideas for a challenge for our team. I suggested a challenge where we could not use white (or vanilla). I will say - this challenge was hard but in the end I pulled off this cheery card!







You must see what the rest of the design team has created. Next on the hop is Charlotte Mallett from the Painted Orange.

Be sure to come check out our next Fancy Friday blog hop, the last Friday in January!

Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!!
