Thursday Thrill

Today I was so excited to test out the new and upcoming items that will be featured in the new Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 catalog. I made this gift certificate holder for a sweet dear friend of mine. She just started her own Salon and requested some certificate holders for her customers. I was thrilled at the chance! 
So I wanted to share this sneak peek with all of you!! I hope you like


I used the Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set (#126006) with Daffodil Delight Ink Pad (#126944), Old Olive  Ink Pad (#126953) and Elegant Eggplant Ink Pad (#126969). The sleeve was made of Velum Paper (#101856) and Designer Series Paper in the Razzleberry Lemonade; this paper has been discontinued but also found the new Floral District (#126919) complemented perfectly!!! Cardstock is Crumbcake (#120953). Tied with some Linen Thread (#104199) add a tag and complete. I love how every item within Stampin' Up! coordinates so perfectly with one another. No running around trying to find the perfect shade of ink with the perfect paper. Its all here for you.

Doesn't it just make you want to get your hands on this sweet catalog!?! Contact me if you are interested in how you could receive a copy!!

Happy Monday

This weekend was so beautiful with the warm weather and filled with fun filled time spent with the kids and my family. I sure hope your weekend was filled with love and blessings alike. 
I received these absolutely gorgeous flowers from my lovely Sister Amber and they inspired me to Kreate of course. As soon as I returned home I could not wait to begin my latest kreation using my brand new set of  Mixed Bunch (#125537) and an embossing resist technique. The colors are vibrant, fun and warm. 

I sure would love to see what fun Kreations you have made with this set. So here is your newest challenge... Send me your latest projects using this set and I will enter you in a drawing to win a free package of the beautiful, brand new 2012-2014 In Color Dahlias (#127556)!!! 

Simply leave a comment below confirming your submission and send me an email with your submission to!!
