Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers #29 (SBS29)

I am excited that the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers (#29) is finally kicking off. I have only been blogging since the beginning of October but feel that I have already learned so much and made new blogging friends.

Okay, about me.... I don't know about you, but I have a hard time writing about myself. I am a wife, mother, and sister. I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 11 years. My daughter, Elizabeth, is 8 years old. Occasionally you will see a picture of her or of a project she has made. We have 2 dogs and 1 parrot. All three are quite the characters.

I am lucky enough that my employer lets me work from home. I also have a reduced work week of 30 hours so that I can spend more time with my family. I have been with the same company for 12 years but have had several different positions including Sales & Marketing manger, Account Manager, and currently Operations Manager.

Although I have always been involved in one craft or another, I only got involved with paper crafts over the last several years. It all started with going to a Creative Memories party at a friend's house which led to scrap booking.... Lots of money later, here I am. Now I prefer card making to scrap booking.

I am a member of the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff MyGrafico shop Design Team. I couldn't believe when I was picked. I had just got my blog going and it was the first time I tried out for anything. Working with Lindsay and the other DT members has really got me hooked on digital stamps. Unlike the other kind, I don't think I will ever run out of space to store them! I still use traditional stamps, but I love the digis.

Okay, don't laugh, but I am also an avid Jazzerciser. I try to get to class at least 3 times a week. I have done it for years and was actually still going to class when I was 8 months pregnant. (I finally had to take a break because my shoes didn't fit any more and it was too hard getting them tied anyhow. I jumped right back into as soon as I could.)

I also love reading and usually go through 1-2 books a week (although I have slowed down during the Holidays) and I LOVE listening to music. I love all kinds of music, rock, country, indie, jazz, blues, etc., and almost always have it playing. If you are interested in either, I would love to be your friend on or

Well, I can't believe I have gone on so much about myself. Thank you for your patience if you read this whole thing. I am looking forward to see all your projects in the future.

Yeah sista's!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
