Hi Stampers!


I am coming to you today with a card from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month for December.  I absolutely fell in love with this kit and boy oh boy did it sell out quick.  I was so lucky to get one.

The kit came with a really cute stamp set and Doodle Bug 6x6 designer paper along with a bunch of fun stuff to try such as a Chibi set used to create a circuit in a card so the card lights up at the touch of a button.  That is an experiment for another day but I am super excited about it!

The kit also came with pictures of 6 card samples that can be made from the contents.  I really always try to be original but I have to give credit to another designer here.  

This is the picture that came with the kit which was designed by Sarah Moerman:


Here is my version of the card:

I changed it a bit by adding a ribbon to the top and keeping the colors consistent without introducing red into the card.   I have to admit I got a little over zealous with the snowflakes on my version and i prefer Sarah's more clean snowflake placement.  One more thing. . .It is almost impossible to see but I also used a Quickie Glue Pen and some amazing Fun Stampers Journey glitter to a bunch of randomly placed hearts on the pink paper.  It really gives the card some extra pizzazz.

And of course, I designed the inside of the card with some of the same paper, that cute little reindeer which I colored with Spectrum Noir and an awesome stamp from Lawn Fawn (totally obsessed with Lawn Fawn).

Fun Stampers Journey - Glitter Blitzen

Hello Stampers-

I am back again with another card AND video tutorial.  You will notice that there is some glare in the pics below and that is because this card is SOOO FULL OF GLITTER it was actually difficult to capture on camera.  Oh what a problem to have - - - too much glitter. . .NEVER!!!

This card style is more of an elegant take on a holiday motif.  I also challenged myself to make this a single layer card so I often look to a more interesting fold when doing something like that.  I removed a portion of the card front and stamped Blitzen on the inside of the card which is peeking out to the front.  There is still room for a personalized note inside the card.  I used A LOT of bling and pearls on this card.  I didn't hold anything back :)  I also used Scotch glitter tape which I found at my local Walgreens in the Christmas wrap aisle.  The package came with red, green, silver, and gold.  I am in love with the stuff.  The gold against the FSJ Buttercream card stock is so rich and elegant. LOVE IT!!!

My First Video for Fun Stampers Journey

Hello Stampers!!!

I am so excited to share my very first youtube video with you today.  I have never recorded a video, edited a video or loaded anything in youtube prior to this so this was a bit of a stretch but surprisingly very fun!!!

I used Fun Stampers Journey products in this video and again I was SUPER IMPRESSED.  

I love Paris and so I was very drawn to these stamp sets.  Sometimes I see cards in my head and the design seems so obvious to me.  They way the stamps have to go together and the exact way the image should be colored and the whole color scheme.  This was one of those cards.  This card took no time at all to design.

I would love to hear your feedback on my video.  I sure learned a lot. . .I hope you do too!  Take a peek.

Hello Stampers!!!

I am so excited to be back to my blog and making cards again.  2016 has been one of the worst years of my life (a story for another time) but recently I have turned back to my crafting roots for comfort and stress relief!  Only a true crafter can understand how you just lose yourself while you create and I have needed that.  

With that said, I have decided to embark on a super exciting new opportunity with Fun Stampers Journey.  I sat down for a make n take at their booth at the September 2016 Scrapbook Expo in Mesa and I was hooked.  For those of you that know me, I am EXTREMELY particular when it comes to the quality of my craft supplies.  Their stamps make the perfect impression every time and each tool, adhesive, and embellishment I used on that card brought me closer and closer to an easy decision to sign up as a Journey Coach on the spot!!

I wanted to share this fun stuff with you and I will be posting pictures of my card creations on my blog and I think I may even venture into the youtube world.  Yes, that's right - now I have said it in writing and I need to take the plunge!!  My recording space is all set up and I have a couple projects in the wings!  So exciting but totally uncharted territory.

I thought I would share with you my original Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) make n take from the day I signed up.  





FSJ Products Used:  
-Stamp Set - You Deerly SS-0220
-Paper - FSJ Cardstock in Whip Cream CS-0040, Candy Apple CS-0007, 
Cool Pool CS-0118
-Ink - Black Licorice IP-0041, Cool Pool IP-0074
-Embellishments - Journey Glaze AD-0003; Journey Thread in Whip Cream AC-0128; Happy Holidays Embossing Folder EF-0009; Journey Sequins Blue Skies AC-0113


Since signing up, I have made several projects I am super excited to share.

I know that most people that sell for Stampin Up or companies like FSJ use exclusively their own brand of product in their samples and videos.  I will be using mostly FSJ but mixing in some other things I have because, LET'S BE HONEST, no one is going to have everything from FSJ right away, you have to build up your collection and YOU WILL!  I promise, the products speak for themselves.  You will love them!!!


So how do you get the products?  Here's some info:
