Always In My Heart Anniversary

Greetings my stamping friends. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I want to wish all the Moms a belated Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you were able to spend quality time with your families.

May 10 is actually my 7th wedding anniversary so today’s project is the card that I made for my husband.

I don’t know about you, but masculine cards are one of the most difficult for me to design. I am all about the ribbons, bling and layers when I make cards. This project is a quick and simple design with bare dimensions (believe it or not I didn’t use even one dimensional on this card!)

I used the Always in My Heart stamp set and coordinating Floral Heart Dies to make this card. To try to make it more manly, I used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper which includes textile designs and wood/plank images. The banner for the Happy Anniversary sentiment is included in the coordinating dies set and it scores the banner where it will fold under and over to create the flying banner look. (The banner is attached with mini glue dots.) I love this die set!

Here is a complete list of the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card with quick link thumbnails so you can quickly and easily add them to your shopping cart if you need (want) them:

Product List

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a trip out to Winstar in Oklahoma. We had dinner at Kirby’s Steakhouse and then tried our luck at the slots. The wait staff at Kirby’s was amazing as was the food. We were given a choice of a free dessert in recognition of our anniversary – we chose the Chocolate Spice Cake. Oh my, it was so good!

And I came back with more money in my purse than when we left; my husband wasn’t as lucky. 😉

If you should have any questions about recreating a card using this design, or regarding any products offered by Stampin’ Up!, please do not hesitate to contact me. I love being able to share my love of Stampin’ Up! and paper crafts!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends!

A Bouquet of Hope for Mother’s Day

Greetings my stamping friends! I wanted to share a quick card with you that I made for my Mom for Mother’s Day.

If you follow my blog posts, then you likely have read posts promoting the monthly card kit from Stampin’ Up! called Paper Pumpkin. I love this monthly kit because it includes all of the supplies I need to make each month’s projects, and the projects are predesigned so I don’t have to “think” too much when I am creating with them.

Since I needed a Mother’s Day card and I’m not completely organized in my crafting space (but great progress was made on Friday!), I checked my most recent kits for a project that I could use for this purpose. I was awed by the February 2021 kit – Bouquet of Hope – and while it is meant more as sympathy or pick me up messaging, I thought I could make it work for my needs.

Tada! On the inside of the card I stamped the large bouquet of flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored in the image with a variety of colors from my collection of my Stampin’ Blends (hands down one of the best alcohol marker sets on the market!). I will also write a personal message inside the card just for my Mom.

The outside design of this card is all die cuts that are included in the kit. This particular kit supplied enough materials to create 9 cards (3 each of 3 designs). A month to month subscription for the Paper Pumpkin kit is $22.00/month plus taxes (US) (shipping is included). I’m not sure how much cards cost in retail stores (since I have made all of my cards since 2009), but surely they are more than $22.00 for 9 cards! A bargain at twice the price, right!?

And in case you haven’t taken time to browse the new Annual Catalog (yeah, right – who am I kidding), Stampin’ Up! will be introducing a new line of all-inclusive kits in the very near future. Go to for more details. (As a reminder, Paper Pumpkin kits are only available by subscription.)

If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up!, their kits, or any of their other products, please contact me.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Batter Up!

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about, then share the message with your friends and family! Play ball!

If you are not already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, be sure to sign up or reactivate your monthly subscription BEFORE MAY 10 if you want to receive the Batter Up! Kit!

A monthly subscription in the US is $22.00 per month + taxes. Shipping is included. You can pause your subscription at anytime and can increase the number of kits you want to receive per month as needed if you want to share with friends or family. You can also “gift” a kit to that special crafter in your life – however, for it to ship directly to them you will need a separate account and email address.

If you have any questions on how you can receive a box of fun in your mail box each month, just ask me. I am here to help and am just an email or phone call away.

Here is my personalized LINK where you can check the status of your subscription or start a new account. An email address will be required to become a subscriber.

Thank you for stopping by to see what’s new. Until next time, stamp on my friends!

CASEing the Catalog (sort of) – Snail Mail Suite

Greetings my stamping friends! I hope those of you who live in Texas (like me) have survived the winter storm of 2021. We were fortunate to just lose power and (knock on wood) we have not had any water pipes burst. I have discovered that I have few survival skills and could not live somewhere without electricity and WiFi!

The projects I am sharing with you today are CASEd (copy and share everywhere) from samples in the January-July 2021 Mini Catalog; with slight modifications. They were lots of fun to make and I hope you are inspired to create something of your own.

Can you pick out what I changed from the samples? For a better look, check out page 54 of the Mini Catalog.

All of these projects use products from the Snail Mail Suite. Below are the product thumbnails with hyperlinks so you can easily add them to your shopping cart (I will include the Suite link as well as for each product separately):

Product List

If you do not want the entire Suite, but do want both the stamp set and the coordinating dies, be sure you order the “Bundle” option. When purchased as a bundle, you save 10%. There is not an additional discount if you purchase the Suite (besides the 10% bundle); the collection order option is just so you can “add it all” with one click if you want it all. (And who doesn’t want it all? It is stinking cute.)

If you have any questions on the design or layout of any of these cards, please ask. I am happy to share my tips with you.


Reminder: Sale-A-Bration ends on February 28, 2021. Be sure that you have placed your qualifying orders before the end of the promotion so you can receive the FREE products while supplies last.


Also, don’t forget that during Sale-A-Bration, if you purchase the Starter Kit for $99.00, you will receive five (5) packages of 6″ x 6″ designer series paper at no additional cost (and our designer series paper is AWESOME so this is a win win)!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit Possibilities

Greetings my stamping friends! I have been very crafty over the last few days and I am excited to share with you my creations.

This will be a rather long post with 22 – yes 22 – cards I created when I combined the Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit (available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) with just two additional products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. (I send a special THANK YOU to Jann McCollom for sharing her projects with me, upon which I based several of my card layouts!)

First I will share with you four (4) cards that were made according to the kit’s directions:

The kit comes with enough card bases and other card elements to make three (3) each of the four (4) card designs. The skinny cards will measure 4.50″ x 2.50″ and the larger cards are standard size and measure 5.50″ x 4.25″. Both sizes have a coordinating, size appropriate envelope. (Total of 12 cards with envelopes.)

By making just one of each design from the kit per the directions, by adding some designer series paper (Flower & Field Designer Series Paper [FREE Sale-a-Bration product available through February 28, 2021 or while supplies last]) and/0r a few embellishments (2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots) to the remaining kit supplies, I made the following eight (8) cards:

After making these 12 cards, I still had elements left over from the kit. So, by adding the Flower for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes I was able to make 10 more cards as follows:

Whew! That’s a lot of cards, right!

If you want to make these cards (or your own variation of them), here are the Stampin’ Up! products you will need (or want) to have on hand. I have included the thumbnail quick links for adding these products to your shopping cart:

Product List

If you purchase the Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit, the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (total purchase of $51.00 before taxes & shipping), you will qualify to receive the Flower & Field 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper for FREE as part of Sale-A-Bration (which ends on February 28, 2021).

I hope you have enjoyed today’s projects and feel inspired and emboldened to mix and match the products that Stampin’ Up! has to offer to stretch your all inclusive kit’s potential. The ALL INCLUSIVE KITS provide you everything you need to make the projects as designed — including the stamp set, an ink spot and all adhesives — and are an economical way to build your crafting supplies.

It has been a very long time since I have bought a card — yes, I have handmade ALL of my cards to friends and family since 2009 and they appreciate them much more than a store bought card. How much would 22 cards cost you at the store? More than the $51.00 (before taxes)? Most likely.

If you have any questions about these projects, I would be happy to share my design information with you. This would even be a fun project to do together with friends through Zoom.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
