Its been too long!

I must apologize for the lengthy absence in blog posts… I think the last one was in August! Yikes!  Well here’s what you’ve missed and it may shed some light onto why I haven’t been posting.  I am pregnant! I have about 5 weeks left before we welcome our baby boy Andrew (who I have dubbed Andy-OD) home.  I plan to post some photos of stamping projects I’ve done over my long absence, but first here are some little relevent tid-bits for what’s going on with Stampin’ Up, and some fun baby photos.

DBWS_Main-ad_Paper-Pumpkin_NAPaper Pumpkin!

Stampin’ Up announced this great new monthly project that comes to your door for $19.95/month.  Its a surprise each month, except for the first month, because your first kit will be the same regardless of when you join, and you get a free acrylic block that will be used on all future projects.

When you join Paper Pumpkin at, be sure to choose me as your demonstrator while you’re signing up!  I’d love to help you out with your kit with different ideas each month if you like!

Here’s what you get in your very first kit, regardless of when you join!


For just a while longer, Sale-a-bration time is now!  Sale-a-bration started in January and ends March 22!  If you’re new to Stampin’ Up or just don’t remember, during this sale, you get free products from a special brochure for every $50 that is spent!  Here’s a link to the brochure.

And if you’ve been thinking of joining Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator, now is definitely the time, as your $99 spent on the starter kit, now gets you 25% more in your starter kit ($156.25 worth of product that is completely customizable by you!)  Join up at my website: by clicking Join Now!

Floral District Pinwheel Card – Sneak Peek

Isn’t this a fun card? I really love the colors and patterns in this new Floral District designer paper. I made a cute pinwheel for the front and tied it together with a Pumpkin Pie glimmer brad. The sentiment is from the new set Itty Bitty Banners and framelits to match called bitty banners.


Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners

Paper: Floral District DSP, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White

Ink: Rich Razzleberry

Accessories: Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched grosgrain ribbon, Brights Glimmer Brads
