Bubble Over Birthday Fun

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Here in North Georgia we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather, but it was rather odd having it fall on April Fool’s Day this year.  Yesterday was also my son, Johnathan’s 26th birthday and so I wanted to make him something special. I was inspired by our recent Stampin’ Success, so I reached for my Bubble Over Bundle and got to work. (I bet you can imagine how many times I was told he’ll arrive any moment during labor, followed by April Fool’s Day! Not a lot of fun after 12 hours in labor and it being my first. But then I wouldn’t have those fun stories to tell him either. LOL!)

And of course, I always make a theme cake for him that was inspired by the Bubble Over Bundle. The cap is a little wonky but he didn’t seem to mind.

He loves the special theme cakes that I’ve made over the years for him and this one was no different. It put a big smile on his face, and I learned something too. Did you know you can make a beer cake? I didn’t until my friend mentioned it, but why not right? Need to check out some recipes since I know it will be a lot of fun to give a try. (How appalling after being raised in Milwaukee. Ahhh the smell of hops… a story for another time.) LOL!

Want to see how I made the card? I’ve made a tutorial for you.

March Thank You Cards – All Things Thanks Tutorial

I love to send out thank you cards each month to my stamping friends – It not only allows me to share, but say thank you to them for choosing me as their demonstrator. This month’s card is a monochromatic card made with the All Things Thanks stamp set, which is one of my favorites since it has a variety of fonts and sizes. It makes it a perfect set for all kinds of projects!

And the fact it is monochromatic makes it perfect for new stampers since it uses a limited amount of supplies!

Flying Home

The Flying Home is a image set that is filled with sweet little images perfect for all kinds of occasions.

and while it doesn’t have any sentiments included in the set, this makes it perfect for pairing up with the sentiments of your choice.

Today I’m sharing with you one of the cards we made during my Occasions Catalog Kick Off. It’s a total case since I loved it just the way it was. There is a bit of fussy cutting for the nest and butterfly, but that’s well worth it I think.

And as mentioned I’m including a Tutorial for the card so you can make one too! I just love how easy our Stampin’ Blends make coloring this card!

Lots of Lavender Sachet Video Tutorial

I recently held my Occasions Catalog Kick Off the end of December and so I thought I’d share the projects that we made with you over the next few days along with the tutorials for them.  Today’s lavender sachet was their gift for attending.

Everyone was great about the fact I wasn’t able to finish assembling them myself due to a last minute procedure the day before, so it became a third project for them. LOL! I’ve got such a great group of stampers!

We had a lot of fun using the new products and stamping together. Everyone who attended not only made 3 fun projects, but also got to see the fun new products from them for the first time.
