Summer Happens!

Whew! Summer came and went in the blink of an eye. I was on the go all summer and I loved it! From birthdays celebrations, to baseball games, softball games, family vacations, and the Stampin' Up Convention my summer was booked! Then summer ended and school began. I am not sure how I ended up being a mother to a 4th grader and a 6th grader already, but it is real. I shed some tears, happy tears, just realizing how fast kids grow up. It is a great reminder to cherish every moment with our kids!

Here is a quick photo recap of my summer:

We made some great memories this summer!

In the meantime, I promise I have been creating cards! I have not even had a chance to discuss the new Holiday Catalog with everyone! Yikes, I am in love with all the new products. This catalog is awesome. My wish list is huge. Here is my top five (for today anyway):

1. The Ornament Keepsakes Bundle (Page 3) I love the bundles they have in this catalog! This bundle includes the Ornament Keepsake Stamp Set and the Holiday Ornament Framelets Dies. I cannot wait to make the ornament shown on the cover of the Holiday Catalog! Item # 129950 $42.95

2. 3 1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (Page 4) It is available in three colors, Cherry Cobbler is my fave! I love working with tulle and I am excited to add this embellishment to my cards. Item #127841 $6.95

3. Ghoulish Googlies Bundle (Page 27) Yes, another bundle! This is such a great Halloween Bundle. It includes everything you need to make a cute Halloween treat bag for your favorite trick-or-treater! You get the Googly Ghouls stamp set and Ghoulish Designer Printed Kit Item #129853 $16.95

4. Silicone Craft Sheet (Page 31) I just got mine in the mail and I cannot wait to use it. You can use this when you are working with different adhesives, I will try it with hot glue. No more burned fingers. You can place a dallop of hot glue on the craft sheet, assemble your project, then lift it right off. Item #127853 $5.95

5. Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder (Page 33) I love all of the embossing folders and cannot wait to try this one! Item #127821 $7.95

What is your favorite item from the catalog? I cannot wait to hear from you! There are lots of hidden gems in there so be sure to check out each page. I am still finding new things!


  1. So glad you had such a fun summer!! Cant wait to see your creations. Many blessings dear friend!

  2. I would like a copy of that picture to put in my Convention scrapbook page. I love the picture of the three of us!

  3. You are so creative. I am looking forward to seeing what you have planned for us each month. You'll have to share with me how the Silicone Craft Sheet will prevent the burned fingers when working with hot glue.

    I'm so excited!!! I just can't hind it!

  4. Finally I get it. HAHA
    See you Saturday!
