2016-2017 Catalog Sneak Peek

Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I would LOVE it so much if you would leave me a comment and tell me where you are visiting me from!  This month we are all so excited to share with you some sneak peeks into the 2016-2017 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog!

For those of you that know me well, you know that pink is my absolute favorite color...especially when it is paired with basic black.  If you didn't know that about me....you do now!  I have created my project using the new DSP called "Pop of Pink" .  It is a specialty designer series paper.  There are two sheets with gold foil printing.  In addition to sharing my project, I am also including a picture of the DSP so that you can get a closer look!  I am also showcasing a fabulous stamp set available ONLY for hostesses!!  It is called "Time of Year".

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  PLEASE be sure to leave me a comment; let me know where you are from!  If you haven't gotten your new catalog yet, how about letting me be your demonstrator?  I could get one to you!!!

Manly May Blog Hop

Hey everyone!  Welcome to this months Many May Blog Hop!  I thought I would share a project that we are creating this month as part of the Retirement of both the Idea Book and Catalog and the Occasions Catalog!

I am featuring the Going Global stamp set as well as the Going Places designer series paper stack.  I chose Lost Lagoon as the base for my card and finished it off with a piece of the lost lagoon ribbon.  I am truly going to miss this outstanding color. The lost lagoon is part of the 2014-2016 in color family that is leaving us in just a couple of weeks!

Be sure to hop on over to the next stop on our hop!  I'm also including a full listing of everyone on the hop tour so in case you get lost...you can find your way on to the next stop!

Baby Love Blog Hop

Hello to all my worldwide stamping friends!  Thanks for joining me for another awesome hopping adventure!  This month it is all about the adorable babies that bless our lives!  The official theme is BABY LOVE.  I decided to share this idea with you!

I am showcasing the Made With Love stamp set (found on Page 37 of the big Idea Book & Catalog).  It coordinates perfectly with the Baby's First Framelits found on Page 172.  Did you also know that the adorable animal stamps found in the stamp set are perfectly sized to fit on tags that you can make with the Tags & Labels Framelit Dies found on Page 173?!!!!

I started with a whisper white card base and then cut a layer from our Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack in the smokey slate color pattern.  I layered the focal point with both whisper white and smokey slate and stamped the image on white cardstock using our Tuxedo Black Momento ink.  I colored the baby t-shirt using our marvelous markers in both the soft sky and pool party!  I finished the project off with some of our soon to be retired pool party cotton ribbon!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Please consider stopping by my online store to place your order for the needed supplies for this project!  Enjoy the rest of our hop!

Autism Matters - Memory Keeping Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to our Autism Matters Memory Keeping Blogging Hop. We are all excited to be sharing with you a Memory Keeping Project today to raise awareness for Autism.

With Autism being the third most common developmental disorder being diagnosed today, it is critically important for us to become more aware of Autism in general and how we can be supportive to friends, and family members dealing with this diagnosis everyday.

We hope you enjoy the projects that we are sharing today.

Thanks for joining me today!  This is the 3rd of 4 blog hops that I am participating in this month!  April is Autism Awareness month and I am working REALLY hard at trying to both raise awareness and to raise funds to help a group local to me here in Plainfield!  Won't you conisder helping out?!  Make your checks payable to Wonderland at Lions Park and forward it to me so that I can make one large presentation!

Today the theme of our blog hop is Memory Keeping.  I am showcasing several pages using Project Life by Stampin' Up! This is a pocket system that makes scrapbooking INCREDIBLY easy and very QUICK!  In 2014 I had the honor of attending an all expense paid cruise to the Caribbean for me and my husband.  These pages showcase some highlights of our trip!

I'd LOVE the opportunity to share this product line with you!  Why not give it a try!?  I am hosting my 2nd Annual Stamp Out Autism Event on Saturday, April 30, 2016!  I'd LOVE to have some more attendees!  The majority of the registration fee is being donated to the cause!  The recipient of our funds will be a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing a safe and easy access playground to children with all types of disabilities!  Wonderland at Lions Park in Plainfield, CT has been working EXTREMELY hard for the last several years and has gained the support of the Arc of Quinebaug Valley as well as the Town of Plainfield and has brought this amazing park to our town!  I'd like to help and support them in their efforts for this next phase of the project!  It is NOT too late to register for the event!
