Simply Sweet

I love browsing Pinterest for new ideas and to get my creative juices flowing. While pinning recently, I got inspiration from a very cute lollipop card by Julie Day.  Here is my version below.

It is such a fun card! Who would not want to receive this in the mail?
It was my turn to prepare a make-n-take project at our team meeting this month (Woohoo Kindred Inkers!) so I decided this would be the card to make. For the lollipop base I adhered Stampin' Up's Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to some Whisper White card stock and ran it through my big shot using the Circles #2 Original Die. I started my spiral using Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine in the center of the circle and worked my way out. It takes a few minutes to complete this part but it is totally worth it! I bought a package of Wilton Lollipop Sticks at Michaels and then tied a bow around it to finish it off.
Let me know if you make this card! We had discussions of what size circle to use for the base, my preference was a large…

Woodgrain Fun

I just wanted to share this masculine card with you before the weekend!

I really like the new Woodgrain Textured Impression Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog.  I did not have to embellish this card too much because the woodgrain added the perfect amount of texture.  I have a feeling I will be using this embossing folder a lot! Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

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):
