Sprinkling Happiness

Hello everyone!  We have all successfully made it halfway through the week!  Who's ready for the weekend?? (Me!!)  I participated in a demonstartor challenge with Stampin' Up! a few months ago, and was able to earn this gnome stamp set for free.  (One of the many fabulous perks of being a demo!!)  I was happy to be earning something out of the Occasions Mini, but wasn't really feeling the gnomes....

Until I started playing with them.  They are so cute, and fun to work with.  This card is one we did as a make and take for my customer appreciation party.  With the exception of her red nose, I think it is adorable.  

I will have a few more Gnome Sweet Gnome examples to show later this week.  I especially love the valentine that I'll be posting on Friday.  :)

Take it to Heart

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope the new year is treating you all well.  We've been so busy that we have hardly had time to appreciate it here at my house.  Since the first, I have had a customer appreciation party, & my son turned 11. (complete with an army-spy themed birthday party)  Now I am prepping for a 12 hour crop that I am co-hosting this weekend with two dear friends of mine.  The theme for the crop is Winter Wonderland.  If you are local to the king/pierce county area and are interested in attending - email me and I'll get you a registration form.  Next week I'll feature all of the goodies I've made for the crop.

This card was a make and take at my customer appreciation party.  My customers were excited to get their hands on things from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  We used Take it to Heart, PS I Love You, the Hearts Framelits, and Pool Party Seam Binding - all brand new products available in the mini catalog.  

My greeting was accidentally stamped upside down - and I didn't notice until a customer pointed it out. (After I had taken this picture.)  I suppose this is the price I pay for always rushing through things.  Oh well, at least the design is done - and as many of you know, that is 3/4 of the battle.  

 I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Hello everyone!  Happy new year!  How are you?  I have missed you all so!  But, as I'm sure you can relate - the holidays took over my life.  Since my last post, we have done three thanksgivings, four family birthdays (including mine (:  ), five christmas celebrations, six craft bazaars, and a few holiday parties.  Mix that all in with last minute prepping and shopping - and you get chaos.  This year, I will be more prepared.  (Don't we all say that??)

The Occasions mini catalog starts on Wednesday, and I have to say - I'm just loving it!  There are so many fabulous products in there, especially for the big shot.  The biggest surprise for me was the framelits.  They come in a label shape, and a heart shape - and I just love them both.

Today's card features the label framelits, and the Rue Des Fluers stamp set.  I love the vintage feel it has.  Please be sure to let me know what you think!
