I had a helper over this morning and my friend Amelia and I were talking about some of our favorite smells. We had a lot in common…we both like the smell of gasoline (even though it’s not a good idea to sniff it), we both like the aroma of fresh baked bread, freshly mowed lawns, cucumbers, lemons, grapefruits, and there’s NOTHING like the scent of a newly printed catalog…especially a Stampin Up catalog!
I’m so grateful we have a paper catalog to page through, I think it’s nicer than looking at it online. As I page through my copy, I see new things every time I open it and my wish list is a mile long already! There are lots of amazing bundles to choose from, I’m having a hard time picking a favorite.
The new Holiday catalogs are HERE if you want to stop in and pick one up, or if you’d like me to put on in the mail for you, just let me know and I’ll do it right away so you can browse through all the new fall, Halloween, winter and Christmas goodies that Stampin Up has to offer this year. It’s going to be FUN (and easy) making Christmas cards this year. 🙂
When I first saw this adorable stamp set from Stampin’ Up I knew I had to have it!
The cows are just the cutest, I love the wording and I live in Wisconsin…of course I had to get this stamp set! I tried a few other layouts before I settled on the Dutch fold, which worked out just fine.
The cows are really easy to color, so it doesn’t feel like a chore to “get the markers out”. Since last week when we made this card in class together I haven’t been able to put the stamp set away. I’m working on a list of other words that weren’t included in the stamp set like…herd it was your birthday, or we’ve mooooved, etc. I’ll post more when my list is more complete. Meanwhile, have an udderly fantastic week!
In February of 2019 we adjusted our plans a bit and started a new adventure…Fox Den Landscape & Nursery! I am still stamping and doing classes, but during greenhouse season it’s going to be extra busy for us. Thank goodness for good helpers!
One of my favorite parts of this new adventure is the flowers, I didn’t know much about plants in general going into this but I’m learning so much every day.
So many pretty colors, I get an eyeful of inspiration every time I water the flowers or walk through the greenhouses.
It’s too hard to pick a favorite, so I simply enjoy them every day while they are here. I can’t wait to make a paper version of the daisy with my Stampin Up punches!
We will have a card-making station for Mother’s Day weekend, so come on out and pick out something pretty for mom and make her a card too.

Here are the projects I shared at On Stage in Minnesota, including a video on how to create the little envelopes. I will share more soon, including a tutorial on how to make the envelope flip book.
Thanks for looking, I will highlight each card during the next week or two. The products in the Bird Ballad Suite will be available in the 2019-20 annual Stampin Up catalog, coming in June. Can’t wait to show you more!
I have such exciting news to share! I was asked to be a “presenter” at a Stampin Up On Stage event. I’m so happy I said yes because it was an amazing experience!
I got to showcase the Bird Ballad suite coming in the new catalog and that was the perfect set for me because I’m definitely a bird nerd.
Here’s a peek of me with my display board.
I’ll share each project and some tutorials once I get home. My friends Melissa and Alicia and I will be traveling, chatting, laughing and making our wish list for all the things we want from the new catalog all the way home.
What a fun weekend it had been! Can’t wait to tell you all about it.

It’s here! How do you store your “good” markers? I bet you have some that you don’t let the kids use because they were a little more expensive than crayolas and they are just for you for crafting, right? Well they can be awkward to store. I have all the colors of the Stampin Blends and I absolutely LOVE them; sometimes I put them in a pretty jar, sometimes I put them in an empty Paper Pumpkin box, and sometimes they lay loose in a drawer and eventually one (or 5) go missing. NO MORE! I’m so excited for our custom storage options, I am going to start with lots of marker trays. Here’s what we have, and you can order right now! Everything is interchangeable to make it fit your space. Got storage? Yes we do! (you’re welcome)
In March, we had a fun Stamp Camp that featured cats and dogs…we made 5 fun projects and here’s one of them. The cat punch is in the annual catalog and the stamp set is in the occasions catalog. I sure hope it carries over, I just love our pet sets!
Just look at all the great stamps that are included in the set. Believe it or not, this set is only $16. Check out my online store if you want to shop!
I just had a thought…I bet that cute ball of yarn would be great to stamp on tags for knitters or crocheters…handmade with love!
Have a super day! -Debbi
If you are a crafter, then you probably have a crafting space (even it means dragging everything out to your kitchen table each time you craft)…and we never have enough crafting space, right!? Well, get ready for Storage by Stampin Up! Our new customizable storage system is going to be an amazing solution for how to store our great new stamp pads, Stampin Write markers, Stampin Blends markers, ink refills, and even things like spools of ribbon or other miscellaneous items. I can’t wait to show you more, but here’s a peek just to get you drooling:
You’re going to love picking out the pieces to make this storage fit just right in your area…the pieces fit together just like legos! Hooray for this great new product, coming in April.
Meanwhile, there are only a few more days left to take advantage of the free goodies you get during Sale-A-Bration, what’s left on your wish list??
Sale-a-bration might be my favorite time of year… for every $50 order you get to choose a free item from the SAB flyer. We made this card in class with the So Hoppy Together set from Stampin Up. The playful frogs are great for lots of occasions!
This style card is called a”windshield wiper” card because when you pull on the ends, a little surprise card swishes up. It still folds flat to fit inside of our regular envelopes though, and no extra postage required.
Speaking of windshield wipers, we’ve been using them a lot around here lately. We had mounds of snow, then lots of rain, and now…you guessed it-flooding! I have water coming under the door into my stamping room but that’s not much to complain about compared to our neighbors who can’t even get in or out of their driveway. Hopefully the frost leaves the ground soon and it all soaks away.
Have a great day, spring is right around the corner… can’t wait!
I’m excited to share the bundle we will be using at our next Stamp Camp – Beauty Abounds.
There are so many great options with the stamp set and framelits in this set, and I can’t wait to show you how to use it.
I have room for you to join us on either February 20 or 21. Contact me to reserve your spot and pick out which free Sale-a-bration item you’d like with your order.
