Good Morning and I hope that you have enjoyed the past (2) days of the “parade of beauties”…I know that you all enjoy seeing all types of work and so do I – that is why I love to participate in swaps….you always can find a “nugget” that you will use in the future! 🙂

I have been a “busy stampin’….cutting, wrapping, counting lady” trying to get all of your Produce Shares out the door to you and I am happy to say that even though I did not meet my ultimate goal of yesterday, all if them will be out today!

Let’s get to this card…it is a clean and simple card and I hope that you will pop back tomorrow to see the changes I made and then I will also share with you the dimensions and tips & tricks!





I have already used this stamp set and as I like to say…’s a keeper! I can remember that when I first became a demonstrator….I asked my upline and friend, Mary Fish….“How do you know what to buy?” – I will always remember her wisdom, when in doubt between 2 stamp sets….go for the the “sentiments one” This stamp set is a great example of a keeper! Love the variety of fonts….


Suite Sayings, Holiday Catalog 2016


In the below picture, can you see that the leave has some texture to it? Pop back tomorrow and I will share with you the secret that I love to do with leaves! You can see that this really is super simple….it all get back to “having the basic tools” and also being smart when you purchase your framelits…..Today I have used (3) – they are  are classics that will be used for many, many projects!







Could you guess the (3) framelits before peeking below….well the leaf one is a given but the Delightful Dijon one is from the Christmas Pines….and yep, I listed it as a bundle because you need both as this is just a very classic, well thought out stamp bundle! Just think out of the box and use your framelits in other ways like I did here today!

I admit, I forget about the Tags & Labels framelits….but this works GREAT for sentiments!

I think that you all have been lovin’ the DSP in the new catalog – it is really beautiful and I was thrilled that this paper coordinates with Very Vanilla – ( it is a great change up and adds an instant warmth)


Stampin' Up! Petals & Paisleys DSP, Susan Itell - simplestampin


Have fun with mixing up the DSP – I thought, WHY NOT????? It is the same color family and I think that it adds a fun interest to the card. I wish that you could hold this in your hand as the dimension and “feel” of the card is just great but oh so easy! I really had no idea what to make for you all today but I needed a card for someone to letting her know that I am thinking of her….and it worked!







I hope that this simple card brought a smile to your face and also showed you that it is “ok” to use DSP in a BOLD way. This IS a bold paper but it works great! I think somethings we shy away….I say – GO FOR IT and BE BOLD!

Please pop back tomorrow to see what is up me sleeve! Enjoy your day….go and make someone smile!
