Addition to my Love At First Stamp Blog Hop Post

I made this in a class yesterday with a few friends. It is retired Designer Series Paper, but just imaging putting your favorite Current DSP in place. What a blast we had. Add a few embellishments and you have a beautiful Spring Home Decor piece. Thanks for joining us this weekend for our first ever blog hop. Leave some comments and let us know you stopped by.

Love at First Stamp Blog Hop

Well here it goes my first attempt at being in a Blog Hop. I'll do anything to be involved with my Stampin' Sisters. I hope you enjoy your hop around these talented ladies blogs. I plan to add more projects over the weekend so check back often. So I chose Happy Spring.... Let's try to get in the Spring spirit. We had a beautiful weekend here in the Northeast last weekend, but back to the frigid air this weekend. I will bring a little sunshine and flowers to your day.

I'll start off with my downline Jen's Card Challenge. I tell you getting back into the stamp world of blogging has been a challenge and I was so happy to try this out to get me back into the groove. I flipped this idea around and made my card vertical. Hope you like it. Feel free to go ahead and try this challenge. I'd love to see your take on it. Leave a comment on this post to lead me back to your blog.

Have some Spring Birthday? How about this adorable little LED Votive Candle Birthday Cake? No calories and the flame will always stay lit. I made this cute little cake box to gift it. 

A little flower power to get your spring fever started. Colors used: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise. 

Got this idea from Pinterest, I think I want to make a few more and try them in different colors. I think they will make a great centerpiece.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my blog hop post and you got some Spring Stampin' inspiration. Be sure to hop around to my Stampin' Sisters blogs for some great ideas.

My Digital Studio layout

I haven't been using My Digital Studios in a while. I wanted to use my new download of the Strength and Hope bundle. I have been using this stamp set a lot lately. These pictures are from when Kayla, Ann and I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show in March. Kayla was a little hesitant about going to look at "Flowers at a show", but we left in awe at the beatifull displays. We had such an awesome day! This download and stamp set are available in the newly release Summer Mini catalog and what is even better yet, for every stamp set sold Stampin' Up! is giving $2.00 towards Breast Cancer Awareness. I hope you enjoy. For more details click on the Strength & Hope icon on the right side of my blog. Have a happy Saturday! I'm heading to the Easton Farmer's Market opening day. Then off to do some shopping with my Kayla for our Annual Mother/daughter Day in celebration of Mother's Day complete with pedicures.

Well, I just couldn't keep up with my blogging. I have commited to at least updating once a week now. I'm not going to try and fill you in on the last 6 months I am just going to move forward.This is going to be a challenge all in itself. Our youngest (my baby) will be graduating High School next month. Lots of festivities will be happening... Prom, SR picnic, parties... etc. SO be prepared you are about to go on a ride. hahaha. Kayla is finishing up her Junior yr. of College already.

So onto the Stampin/ Scrappin stuff.... It is national Scrapbooking month. Boy, does Stampin' Up! have some awesome deals going on. It's a great time to get started with my Digital Studios too.

Check out my website for all the details. Contact me if you have any questions.

I just need to thank Shawn at and Melissa at for hosting a Disney Pixar Blog Hop that inspired me to get back to my blog. I became a new follower to a lot of blogs this weekend and I figured I better update mine and keep it updated. :) I love Disney!!

Have a great day! Check back in the next couple of days for some pictures of my latest creations!

This is the left side of my table.

These corner bookmarks were the hottest item of the day. Add them to a great book and it makes a nice gift for that person on your list that loves to read.

Stamped on candles are always a great seller. I also made some paper flowers and added to candles.

Caramels for your apples, make a great teacher gift.

These snowmen are Jiffy pop popcorn attached to a bottle of soda. Add a gift card to Blockbuster or one your choice and it makes a wonderful family gift for a family movie night at home. Perfect for the cold winter nights ahead.

Rudolph's spares.... cute is all I have to say.

Vendor Fair, Open House, Christmas gifts... oh my

Here is a sneak peak of one the projects I've been working on. These will make great gifts for co-workers, bus driver, teachers, babysitters, etc. Cute little poem with a tea bag. I made these using the Garden Gala DSP and coordinating card stocks. I also used the new thin Marina Mist ribbon and topped the flowers off with some crystal effects and glass beads. Enjoy. I haven't posted in a long time, but keep an eye out for some more updates of my craft fair goodies.

Snow Man Soup.... I got this idea from someone's blog and I apologize I didn't write it down, but I LOVED this idea. I used our new SU! Fabric - Candy Cane Lane to cover the lid of a Starbucks Frappecino bottle and tied it with a scrap of fabric and made the little tag with the matching Designer Series Paper and stamped and colored the little snowman and then I used our SU circle and scallop circle punches to cut it out and attached it to complete my cute little gift. I hope you like them. Let me know your feedback. Are they going to be good sellers at my upcoming events?
