Burlap and Blooms Wreath

Burlap is a very popular decorating material right now in the home decor market.  Leave it to Stampin’ Up! to come up with this wonderful Simply Created Kit.  I will be honest that while the entire wreath took me about an hour start to finish to complete, I am not thrilled with the final outcome of those circle flowers.

A Bouquet of Happiness

I did a quick Google search of images using the spiral flower die and came across a photo by Shana Gaff.  I loved her little flower pot and wanted to make a slightly larger one.  Wouldn’t this make a cute desk accessory for a co-worker or a house warming gift?

Spiral Flower Frame

This was another idea that I saw right after attending the Leadership conference in Houston last month.  I love this photo of my daughter and I.   It was taken on Christmas Eve and we started a new tradition of wearing matching pj’s on Christmas Eve.

Inspiring Others to be Creative

Seems like forever since I was in Orlando, Florida for the Leadership conference.  Life has just been a little crazy to say the least.  Yesterday, I thought I really wanted to stamp for me and then I remembered something that Shelli Gardner (Stampin’ Up! CEO in case you are looking at my Stampin’ Up! blog from under a rock 🙂 had shown us.  At the time I turned to my roomie next to me and said “that is the FIRST thing I am going to make when I get home!”  Well it wasn’t the first thing but I did get it done yesterday.  Want to see it?

I sat down and created a fun banner for my stamp studio.  I love how it turned out but as I was editing the pictures I thought gee these really do not do it justice.  Let me just show you each piece.  I have a feeling it may be one of those things that I kind of keep adding things to it.

Here is the first two “flags”:
