Sale-A-Bration 2013

Here's just a sneak peak of some of the fun things going on in my own crafting space during Sale-A-Bration. I am in love with this designer paper! It's only available as a SAB item, so make sure you snag one fast!

It's been a while...

A few years, a while, whatever that might be. I've missed blogging, but the transition of being a stay-at-home mommy of one to a full-time working mother of two has been a bigger journey. I keep pretty busy these days. My heart is full and I barely have time to keep up with the laundry, much less the internet. I took a break from being a demo for a while.
I've been back for a few months, and it's wonderful. Stampin' Up! has so many new products, colors and of course I am having a blast!
We started our local stamp club in November, and I love spending time with the girls creating cards and other items. I've missed this so much!
Feel free to contact me if you need anything. I'll be updating the blog with a badge, but until then, my website is
Happy Stampin' and Creating of all types!

And It's finished :)

I woke up this morning and just wanted to finish this gift. I have almost two weeks, but I just would rather do it now than later. I think it's pretty cute, and was simple (besides the lining... I've never done a lining before. Now I know what I would do different next time to make it easier :) I was going to make a scarf to go through the belt loops but had this way cute ribbon and decided it would be nice. There are no interior pockets, but I put velcro on the front pockets so she can still put little things in it.
I had the ribbon, thread, velcro and colorful halter top in my stash. I only bought the Hannah Montana jean capris. Oh, I used scrap denim for the strap (normally there is enough in a pair of jeans but not kid capris!). So, I spent 50cents on this present. Planning on getting a few things from the Target dollar spot to put inside as well!

Sewing a gift...

Stay tuned to see what I made from these two thrift store finds tonight. Hint: it's a gift for a little girl who is turning 9 :)

Flower Pot Cards!

I got my inspiration for these from SCS as well. They are SUPER easy and besides the brown "pots" everything I used was from my scrap stash... even the ribbon :) So fun! I love them. I've seen a lot of them with a sentiment stamped and hanging from the ribbon. I may do that when I am sending them off... for now they will just sit in my completed card box. They are a pocket card, so when you pull the flowers there is room for writing on a white base. LOVE em.

I have been making a few cards lately...

I have tons of this paper I got as a door prize from Torrington Office Supply a while back... I have a rediculous stash of patterned paper so I kinda forgot about it. I thought it made a more "masculine" card. I need more of those, lol! I also haven't used my SU! set "Puns from the Past" that I just "had to have" so I am trying!
This set I got when I was a demo, I just love it but thought it needed a twist, so I hole punched some "apples" and made an apple tree. So fun!

I've been challenging myself to make cards with my scrap stash because it's so out of hand. I just can't recycle it, but I tend not to use it. So, this is just a quick card I made for my Nana to thank her for our Blackhawks t-shirts and lunch in Colorado.

I LOVE THIS CARD!!! I want to make a bunch more! I have barely used this pretty set, Backwoods? by SU! I actually attempted masking and I love it. I made this for my father-in-law for fathers day this year. I normally don't make him cards, but he seemed to like it :) Maybe I will again....

This was my Daddy's fathers day card. I got my inspiration from SCS. I couldn't find any tutorials so if anyone wants measurements I recorded all the steps I used to make this card. It was really fun and just so cute and creative! Again, the fish was from the Backwoods set. I have lure stamps, but they are too large for this card, so I stamped one in the background when I wrote inside :)
Thanks for looking, hope you liked my creations!
I've slacked so much lately on blogging, pregnancy is just exhausting... especially in the summer with a two year old. WOW! :)

Bunches of Burp cloths...

My new favorite thing to make for babies!

Made two for my friend Heidi's girl...
And two more for my sister's college roomate, Jenn. She recently had a sweet baby boy.
I just bought some fabric for our own little one on the way... I am thinking of trying a little different style burp cloth next :)
