Beautifully Baroque

I have a new set of cards up for sale on my Storenvy shop. I used the Beautifully Baroque stamp to create these lovelies. Check them out:

This stamp looks fab in any color. It's easily one of my favorites; I'm so glad I added it to my collection!

Beautifully Baroque in Baked Brown Sugar reminds me of a henna tattoo. Gorgeous!

***Just a reminder: You only have until Monday 3/31/14 to get your free Sale-a-bration products. Hurry over to my Stampin' Up! store and place your order before it's too late!

Have a fun, creative weekend!

Fix The Parts

I don't know about you but I do my best thinking in the shower and this morning was no different. I currently have a relationship with someone which is in need of repair. For months I have had an internal dialog with myself on how to do that. I even get into yelling matches with myself at times. Well, today I had an epiphany of sorts. I was dialoguing with myself when suddenly I heard: "You cannot repair the whole until you fix the parts."  I'm pretty sure I had similar thoughts over the last few months but for some reason this voice in my head today was much louder than most. I believe I have my answer on how to fix this relationship - I must first fix me.

May your relationships run smoothly,

Nail Decals Giveaway

So I have this amazing electronic cutting machine called a Silhouette and I finally got around to using it this week. I also figured out a way to use digital downloads from Stampin' Up! with the machine. It's magical! I have so many things I want to do now. Card making and scrapbooking just got taken to a whole new level! I can't wait to get my craft room set up so I can really start doing some damage!

Anyhoo, I tried making some nail decals using Stampin' Up! digital files which I cut with my Silhouette onto vinyl. A-mazing! I played around with several designs and here's what I have so far:

Cute, right? A whole new way to use your Stampin' Up! products. You can even bling these out with some Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents  or Candy Dots! I'm in love.

Allison's First Birthday Card

I got on the punch art train when making the girls' birthday cards this year. Here's the one I made for Allison:

Unfortunately I cannot remember which of the punch sizes I used when making this. (This is why you write things down while you are doing it!) I know it took some playing around but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And you gotta have that pink bow. It totally makes it!

Megan's First Birthday Card

Yes, the twins turned one in August and yes, it is now December. Life apparently happened and I didn't get this posted until now. Don't let my tardiness detract from the cuteness of Meggie Moo's birthday card.

While the stamp set is no longer for sale, the die (thing to cut out the shapes) is and it's currently on clearance. Hurry and get yours before they're gone!

Be Brave Pocket Cards Digital Download

Not a lot of time today so I'm going to get right to it. Day 5 is here and I'm loving today's half-price download: Be Brave Pocket Cards.

You certainly can use the sample cards as shown or you can let your imagination run wild with the different files included in this download. I decided not to use the pocket cards as they were shown in the sample but instead used a few individual embellishments in my own way. Here's my layout for the day (so proud of this guy!):

For more inspiration, check out Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio blog.
