Botanical Butterfly Happy Birthday Card

To continue with my pretty butterflies I came up with this card. 
I got inspired from a magazine that is exclusive to demonstrators. In the magazine are article and project to help inspire either your business or your hobby. 
(If it's something that interests you then you should sign up to become a Stampin Up Demonstrator- Click here

These butterflies are so fun to play around with. And they make the most gorgeous cards. This one uses the Botanical Designer Series Paper that is available for free with a $50 order. 

What I like most about this paper is that it has beautiful colorful butterflies on one side and black and white images on the other. When you put the two together you have a great combo that just pops. 

Card Base 11 x 4 1/4 - score at 5 1/2
DSP (with stripes) 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
DSP (green design) 5 1/2 x 3 3/4
Butterflies all cut out
Scrap of Whisper White for sentiment

Botanical Butterfly Birthday Wishes Card

Now you can't go wrong with butterflies. And the new Occasions Catalog is full of them.
I am so in love with all these butterflies. Every time I start making a project I end up adding a butterfly in there somewhere. 

This card is one of my faves. I did take the time to fussy cut all the butterflies out. When I saw the Botanical Butterfly DSP (Free with a $50 order) and I saw the one page full of the different sized butterflies I knew I couldn't jut cut it up. I needed to cut each and every one out.

And so I did and I came out with this beauty!

score 4 1/4
Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock 4 x 5 1/4-embossed with Tuffed Embossing Folder

Lift Me Up Valentine's Day Card

I'll be the first to admit it... I'm not a Valentine's Day Fan. 
Not that I don't like it, I just think its kind of a waste. 
But that's just my opinion. 
(I'd rather have 2nd Halloween... haha!)

I do however love making Valentine's. Especially for my daughters class and my co-workers. 
I'm not big on buying Valentine stuff to make it. I like to improvise. 

This year I stuck to it and did not buy anything Valentines. I scanned what I already have and came up with this lovely card. I think as long as you use the right colors and simple stamp set you can achieve a Valentine's Day card easily. 

The Lift Me Up Stamp Set (142896) and Up and Away Thinlits (142748) make the most perfect Valentine's Day card. They are both still available in the Annual Catalog. 

Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4

So every year Stampin Up starts the year off right with Sale-a-bration! 
This is usually the time of year that is best to sign up and become a Stampin Up Demonstrator. 

I did. 
I signed up 6 years ago during Sale-a-bration and have been loving every minute of it. 
I love being a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I wouldn't change it for the world. 

Right now is a special time to sign up. They are offering $175 worth of product for only $99.
Pay $129, still get the $175 worth of product and the Craft and Carry Tote.

2 Gingerbread Man Cookie Box


The more the merrier. 
When I made my first box for my gingerbread man I was happy with it. I showed it to my daughter                                            and she said its cute but 2 cookies are better then one. 

Well since she is a cookie monster I had to take her up on that challenge. So I made my same box but for 2 gingerbread man cookies.

It comes out the same way but is a tad bigger so that you can fit 2 cookies in it. Now if you didn't want to fit 2 cookies it can also fit other candies and even a gift card.

Spirited Snowman Card Set

I guess you can say that I am obsessed with these snowman. They are just too cute and so much fun to work with. 

With these cards I couldn't decide which snowman I wanted to use. So I ended up using all three to make a cute little card set that you can give to someone. 

When I fist made the set I used Cherry Cobbler but since I only had Real Red Ribbon I decided to make it in Real Red. Either one looks good. You really can't tell the difference. 

Thick Whisper White Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4
White for stamping Buffalo Check  4 x 5 1/4
Scraps of Real Red or Cherry Cobbler for cutting with framelits
