It’s March already, can you believe it? So I’ve been working on my family and friend’s birthday cards that I’ll be sending out.
I’m really loving the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and coordinating punch that you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration so that’s where I started. And since we’ve had a lot of over cast days from all the rain I wanted something bright and cheerful too, so here is what I came up with.
So what do you think? Fit the bill? I just love the In Color Lovely Lipstick!
I also wanted a birthday sentiment and this set didn’t have one, so I reached for the fun Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set on my shelf. This set is a great choice since it has tons of birthday sentiments for both inside and out.
I love teaming up the stamps to create a perfect combination for the person I’m sending it to.
As always here is a video tutorial for my monthly birthday card for you.

The Lovely Day stamp set is found in the February Paper Pumpkin Kit and is just beautiful. So I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and start creating. Here is what I came up with.
I reached for my Note Cards & Envelopes (144236) since not only is this a great size, but it is wonderful choice since you get both the card base and envelopes in one package at a great price, making it a economical choice. I’ve colored it with our Stampin’ Blends. I love this coloring choice since it gives us such vivid colors and they really are sooo easy to work with. And coloring is relaxing too which is an added bonus, right?
Here is a quick video showing you how I created this card.

It’s raining again here in North Georgia and so my crafting has been reflecting my dreams of spring being right around the corner!
Today’s project uses the lovely spring Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper, one of our Coordination Products that are available for a limited time. You can see all of them HERE.
I love the soft subtle colors for spring and the fact that the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper coordinates with our punches is an added bonus. I always love another way to use a punch. How about you?
I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial for you and a video which includes some quick tips for getting the most from this paper.

I especially love the fact that my Paper Pumpkin kits’ stamp sets can be used over and over again after I finish the kit and help build my crafting supplies easily too. After all if you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin for 12 months, you’ll have a complete year of all occasions stamp sets and at least 12 different colors to stamp with! How great is that?
That makes these kits wonderful gifts for all ages too!

It’s time for another card tutorial! I created this little card for my Team Winter Retreat Shoe Box Swap a couple of weeks ago and set it aside to share with you.
Unfortunately, it got buried on my desk. I tend to set things in a safe place so that I can find them later. And then well, can’t. lol, Do you ever have that problem? Well you’re in luck since today I found the card and I’m sharing this project along with some of the other Shoe Box Swaps that I made too.
Here is a quick video tutorial for you and the PDF with a complete supply list.
Enjoy! And don’t forget if you love this set as much as I do you can earn it for free! It’s a special host gift during Sale-a-bration. Contact me today so you can get yours!
And here are some of the fun Shoe Box Swaps that I made during the Winter Weekend Retreat. This first card uses three of our lovely Sale-a-bration items the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (152284) and the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (152288) with their coordinating Lily Pad Dies (152315)
This next card uses one of our great masculine choices from the Mini Catalog, Clubhouse (151583) This stamp set is part of our Country Club Suite of Products (153930)
I love how the little tufts of grass and sentiment are placed on the inside panel.
And how about this next card uses products from the Tropical Oasis Suite (153941)? They’ve been teamed up with the free Sale-a-bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Pack (152314) that you can earn when you purchase the Timeless Tropical Bundle (153811).
And a fun card uses our Best Dressed Suite (153926), after all who doesn’t love shoes?
And finally this vintage feeling card uses the Very Versailles (149275) and Butterfly Gala (148580) stamp sets found in the Annual Catalog.
Whew. There was a lot of stamping going on during our 8th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat. It’s hard to believe I’ve been holding this event for my team for 8 years already! The time has flown by with a lot of sharing and laughter.
If this sounds like fun to you why not learn more about my team HERE. We love welcoming new stampers. Sale-a-bration is a great time to join with the extra stamp set of your choice, along with the Mini Trimmer and Designer Series Paper Sampler! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
As promised today I’ll be sharing the card I designed for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Shoe Box Swap that I hosted last weekend. I really love the way this card turned out. Lovely Lipstick just seemed to be a perfect choice for this card since I was choosing the lipstick image.
I’ve used the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper stack for this project since I really like the fact it has both lovely floral patterns on one side and then graphic patterns on the other that play off the stamp set images. Great for all kinds of occasions cards this spring.
I’ve put together a video tutorial for you along with my standard PDF with the complete supply list and step by step how to.
And how about some of the other participants cards too?
This first card was created using the From My Heart Suite of products (153931) and is perfect for that someone special.
The lovely From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (151189) has been teamed up with our Heart Doilies (151191) and Form My Heart Faceted Gems (151154). Do you recognize the little hearts? It from the Stitched Be Mine (148527) Dies from the Annual Catalog. One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination they give us so you can use our new products with ones you already have!
This next card uses our Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms (152290) that you can earn for FREE when placing a qualifying order.
It also uses the fun Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Combo Pack (152314) another item in our Sale-a-bration Brochure that’s you’ll have fun using on your projects.
Done in Soft shades it has a wonderful spring feel to it. Don’t you love how the same set can look so different simply by changing your color pallet? I shared an project with you earlier this week HERE using colors from our Regals family. Why not check it out?
Today’s project is one that I made as a little gift for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demos recent shoe box swap that I hosted last Saturday.
This event is a new one that I’m hosting for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, including those in North and South Carolina who want to participate and are in driving distance. It’s a lot of fun sharing and stamping together.
It holds a some heart shaped chocolate cakes in it made by Little Debbie.
So quick and simple to make and who wouldn’t like a little cake to sweeten their day?
