Stampin' Blends - #GDP140


A few weeks ago I went to Salt Lake City, Utah and got to spend time with my friend Cindy Schuster. Among many things we had planned that week, two of our goals were to teach me to use Stampin' Blends and the Stamperatus! I am happy to say that we achieved that and as you would have guessed fell in love with both of these new products from Stampin' Up!©.

I colored this flower at Cindy's house, following her amazing tips that she taught me!



Thank-you Cindy for teaching me all about Stampin' Blends! 


As you may know, I blog each Monday with the Global Design Challenge as a member of their elite design team. For some reason I had thought that this post was scheduled and ready to go! I realized last night that I was wrong! I will be posting this card to the GDP site as a participant this week. Did you know that you can participate too! Click over to learn more!

True Gentleman - Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Happy Fancy Friday my friends!
This month the Fancy Friday design team challenge was True Gentleman ... 



I have been dying to bust out a new stamp set from the upcoming 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I used the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and a color combo inspired by the True Gentleman Suite for my Fancy Friday card today.

Bitty Blue Dino's - #GDP139


Happy Holiday Monday to my Canadian followers! It is May long weekend and the official kick off to summer! I am writing this post on Friday and am excited for a sunshiny weekend filled with friends and summer fun! I went to the greenhouse this afternoon ... everything was picked over and nearly sold out! I did manage to get some flowers so planting will be on my list of summer fun.

Cue the confetti - The Crafty Carrot Co blog hop


Hellooooo! Welcome to the May Crafty Carrot Co blog hop! We are featuring the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and the new 2018-2020 Stampin' Up! In Color's this month!


Two weeks ago I got to spend 5 days in Salt Lake City at the Stampin' Up! home office and with Cindy Schuster! I created this card during one of our craft sessions when we were together! 

Crafting in Cindy's kitchen!






It amazing spending the week in the home office at Stampin' Up! but I truly think that spending the week with Cindy made it perfect. Stampin' Up! has given me many gifts over my eleven years as a demonstrator. Friendships from around the world are some of most cherished things that have come from this crafty thing that I do! Cindy and I laughed, cry, crafted, hiked, ate, drank and talked and talked. 

On our hike, the great salt lake behind us.

My first trip to Hobby Lobby and we found a barn door that matches
the Stamp Set!
