I completed all of my layouts. I finally figured out how to get those pictures off my phone and printed. I even found some pictures laying around that had been printed and nothing done with them and I scrapped them. YIPPY! Happy New Year! I am ready for 2012

Scrappy Challenge

So I gave myself a little pre-New Years resolution to get all of my scrapbooking caught up before the end of the year. Yikes! I know that is what I thought when this first came out of my mouth. But hey here it is New Years Eve and I am one layout away from having it all caught up. My only problem is getting some of the final picture off of my phone and onto my computer so I can print them. So here is one of my layouts that I did of the EISF or Easter Idaho State Fair.

I used the Big Top DSP 122348, Bright Buttons 119747, White Baker's Twine 124262, and the new Labels Collection Framelits Dies 125598 these are not available until January 4th in the new occasions mini catalog. Love them! They are so fun.

Note: If you have been wanting the stocking builder punch 124095 from the Holiday mini order it now. Come January 3rd it is gone and we received a note from the home office that it will not carry over to the new catalog.

I still have openings for the Stampin' Therpy group. If you are interested contact me ASAP.

Let's Smooch

Now that I have your attention let me show you my take on this weeks mojo monday sketch complete with Smooch Spray.

Is this not so cute. I am so loving the new Twitterpated Designer Paper that is coming out in the Occasions Mini catalog on January 4th. I am showing you lots of sneak peaks from this new catty.

Coming Soon:

P.S. I Love You 125462

Twitterpated DSP 125406

Twitterpated Designer Buttons 125579

Pleated Satin Ribbon Blushing Bride 125570

Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz 125580

To achieve this look I spritzed the smooch spritz directly onto the stamp and then stamped it twice. I like the way the second stamping looked better. The first one was a little to hard for me.

It reminded me of Junior High. There was this boy and he was getting ready to plant his first kiss on a friend of mine. Well I am sure at that age all he wanted to do was get out of there. Since yes the whole bus was watching him. So as fast as he could he gave her a big smooch and ran off. Well when he gave the smooch it was so hard my friend's head hit the window of the bus and she started to cry. Poor girl. Like I said the first one was just a little too hard.

In his defence he did grow up in a family of all boys. I am sure he is a little softer now. After all he is married with a bunch of little ones.

With Valentine's just around the corner you are going to want to try this technique so grab that smooch spritz and get stampin'. Give me a call or send me an e-mail to join one of my classes today. This is sure to be a technique we will be trying.

Happy Smooching and Merry Christmas!

Mojo Monday 215

Here is this week's sketch of Mojo Monday. Clean and simple. I love it. I don't know about you, but boy cards are a little bit more of a challange for me to make. I thought this one turned out just cute.

I used the turtle and presents from the Turtle & Co. stamp set on page 16 of the IB&C. (w 122870 c 122872). This set is super special it is our Ronald McDonald House set. For every set sold Stampin' Up donates $3.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. With your help we have contributed over $1,000,000 to date. I think that is super cool.

I also used my new Petiete Pairs (w 122495 c 122497) set. Love this set so many occasions to use it with. Just add Cake DSP 124339.

So my friend Tiffani and I held our first Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack. It was super fun. We didn't realize when we set the date that this was veterans day and 11-11-11 and no school. SORRY! Those that attend had a super fun time though. Sasha won a free stamp set Contempo Christmas (w118734 c 120594) and Andrea won some cute little baby bean bags made by Tiffani using the scallop square die 115850 and her BIG SHOT 113439!

Tiffani and Sasha


Speaking of the big shot if you don't already own it you are going to want to. I just got a sneak peak of the new occasions mini catalog coming out in January and let's just say you will need a BIG SHOT! You can give Santa my number or website address ( to help make his shopping easier. If he would like I can order it and have it wrapped and ready for Christmas Morning. He would just need to pick it up here at my house.

So back to the Super Fun Christmas Card Stamp-a-stack. Tiffani and I will be offering a last minute class for all of those who were not able to attend. We are shooting for Wednesday, December 7th at 7:00pm. Come and join the fun. Call to reserve your seats today. Bring a friend and double the fun.

We will be having door prizes, give aways, is going to be super fun. We are planning for Friday, November 11th from 7-9pm or Saturday the 12th from 2-4pm. You only need to attend one class. So tell your friends and lets have some stampin' fun. Oh yea, and the reason for letting you know this right now...this will be one of the cards that we will be offering.

2 Red Ribbons and some SPICE CAKE

Finally here I am uploading pictures of my projects that I entered into the Eastern Idaho State Fair. I do not know what is up with my camera and uploading but I guess it is just flipping some of the pictures all by itself. I have not idea how to flip them back. ANYWAYS..... Here are the three cards that I entered under "Thank You" catagory. I got second place. Super excited! I used a lot of fun stuff from the holiday mini.

Love the NEW 3/8" quilted Satin Ribbon in Early Espresson 124104 (and Cherry Cobbler 124105).

The Spice Cake Designer Fabric 124066 and DSP 124003.

Here is a closer look of my cute little flower. I also added an antique brad 117273 to the middle. I used the tasteful trim Bigz XL Die 120893 to make the flower.

A little Rock N' Roll technique on the little tag with a leaf stamp from the Genly Falling 123804 c or 123802 w stamp set.

I love the look of layering even with ribbon and linen thread 104199. The ribbon is the Pear Pizzazz 1/2" stitched-poly Ribbon. So cute!

So here is my page of "The Cutest little Cowboy" I posted a page a lot like this earlier, but yes I had to do some updating for the fair and add in some more layers.

Don't you just love these big buttons? I layered my Spice Cake Designer Button 124113 with an antique brad in the middle.

I would love to hear what you think. Also check back soon. I will be posting card pictures for the October Stamp-a-stack class and Margaret's class. We will be using lots of fun stuff from the new Holiday Mini Catalog.

Yes, I am still here. For those of us in Blackfoot life seems to become a little crazy around the first week in September due to the Eastern Idaho State Fair. It is a huge thing here. And since the fair is just down the road from my house there is just no getting around it. Little Blackfoot just becomes one big crazy place. The schools even have early release days for the fair. It is crazy and add two little guys birthdays on top of that and we have one big crazy party. I did finally after years of talking about it submit some items in the arts & crafts department at the fair. I did the cutest little cowboy page of my little guy Samuel, but of course I had to change it up and add more to it. And I did three cards. No I couldn't just use any I had to make three new cards I used the Spice Cake DSP, fabric and buttons. And...I forgot to take pictures before I turned them in. Can you believe that. I will post pictures once I can pick them up next week. I hope all of you are having a great week and if you are here in Blackfoot have FUN AT THE FAIR!

Rolo Pencil - back to school

It is that time of year again when everyone heads back to school. The smell of new shoes, pencils and chalk. Don't you just love it? I am getting pretty excited about the kids heading back to school. We are ready for a routine again. I always enjoy seeing them grow and learn. So the other day my daughter, Kinsley, helped me put together these cute little Rolo Pencils for their teachers on the first day of school. Aren't the cute? What made these little babies come together so smoothly is the new Simply Scored 122334 coming September 1st in the Holiday Mini. This is a must have. I was able to score all the lines on the pencil in a snap. I also used the Round Tab Punch 119864 to make the cute little apple core.

Happy Back to School!

I just love these little kids from the Greeting card kids (c 120633). I also used the Just add cake DSP (124339).

This little tin turned out stinking cute and just perfect for any girls BFF. I used the Flirtatious Specialty DSP (122360) and the Best Friends Forever stampset (W 122805).

I also used the Melon Mambo Embossing Powder (123223) on the BFF. This picture does not do it justice. It is SOOOOO Pretty.

This little pail would make such a cute birthday gift or party favor also would go great for back to school just change the words. I used the Just add cake DSP 124339, the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch 122361, and the Fabulous Phrases W117002.

Here are our cute little Greeting Card Kids 120633 again. I just love them. I love how vintage this one looks. I added in some raffia and did lots of sponging. I also used the must have new 1/2" scallop dots ribbon in Cherry Cobbler 124138 and Chocolate Chip 124142.

This cute little 4oz round tin is filled with erasers perfect for back to school. We used the Blossom Bouquet Tripple Layer Punch 122464 and the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 118309.

These cute little mini lunch sacks are so fun and easy to decorate. I have both the white shown here and the kraft shown below.
