Happiness Blooms Cards

Today's cards are so quick and easy - there's no stamping required! I made them using the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack, and just a few other supplies.





These are just four of the twenty cards you'll get to make in my Happiness Blooms class to go. Today is the last day to register, so don't miss out! This class is a great value at only $35 - you get four full-size products and the instructions to make 20 cards! Register here, and your class kit will ship by the end of next week.


Happy stamping!

My Top 10 Retiring Products

The time has come to say goodbye to some of our favorite products. It can be hard to see those things you really like on the retiring list, but the longer I've been a demonstrator, the less I've cared about what's going. Give me all the new stuff! That said, I thought I would share my top 10 with you. Make sure you grab these things before they're gone! Stamp sets are guaranteed through May 24. Everything else is while supplies last.

#5: Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set


#6: Wood Textures DSP


#7: Soft Sayings Card Kit

Watch for some highlights of these products in the next few weeks! Which retiring products will you miss the most? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Happiness Blooms Class to Go

Oh, I guess I have to apologize for my lack of blogging recently. Did you know life with four kids gets busy sometimes? Haha! We also had company most of March, and it is taking me awhile to get back into the routine. But - today I have a treat for you! This class to go is quick and easy, and you get 20 cards out of it! Plus - no stamping required! This is the kind of class that is perfect for busy people, which is all of us, am I right?




For $35, you will receive the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack, the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine, and Corrugated Elements.


I will also send you a PDF tutorial with the instructions to make 20 cards, and then you'll even have some extra supplies left over for your own projects and designs. 20 cards for $35? No way can you buy cards like this for that price at the store!


If you are interested in this class, you can fill out this Google form and let me know. There is also a tutorial only option available for $10. The deadline to register is April 19, and kits will ship no later than April 26. If you have any questions, please let me know.


Happy Stamping!

Quick & Easy Flowering Desert Card

Have you seen cards posted with the hashtag #simplestamping? Stampin' Up! has been challenging demonstrators to share cards that don't have much more than stamps, ink, and paper, and minimal layers. I have a hard time not using the Big Shot, but besides that little stitched heart, this card is pretty simple.




This stamp set is my favorite! I sure hope it sticks around!


Stamps: Flowering Desert
Ink: Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick
Paper: Whisper White, Lovely Lipstick, Wood Textures DSP Stack
Accessories & Tools: Linen Thread, Stitched Labels Framelits, Big Shot


Happy Stamping!

Facebook Live: Painted Seasons

I am catching up on blogging today. This is how life in my house has been going recently, and it is hard to keep up some days!

Stamps: Painted Seasons (SAB), Part of My Story (SAB)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Wood Textures DSP Stack, Painted Seasons DSP (SAB)
Accessories & Tools: 2" Circle Punch, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot, Rhinestones
