I admit, I have always want to go in a Hot Air Balloon…..has anyone ever done this? If so, please leave a comment and let us know if you liked it and if you would recommend it!

I have not had the opportunity to blog about this beauty, the Lift Me Up Bundle and I am glad that I can today! I admit, I never took the time to see how easy it is to add the color behind….so when in doubt about a product – go to the stampin’ Up You Tube Channel and check it out!

The details in this whole bundle are very impressive. Until I watched the video I did not realize that the one framelit was a mini cupcake and how great it pairs up with the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack.





You have to admit…it is a classic and oh so detailed bundle! You know me, I love bundles because I love to save the money…(you get an instant 10% off instantly and then I will get another 25% discount for doing the fun that I do)…..I am tellin’ you….you should think about becoming a hobby demonstrator – so easy!

With the great incentive of also get YOUR CHOICE of any 2 stamps sets in any of the catalogs, it truly is a no brainer! If you want to get the kit (your choice of whatever you want) and then be done – YOU CAN DO THAT….and there are no worries of penalties or any obligations.

Email me and I will be happy to help answer any questions you might have.



Now let’s get to the parade of pictures I have for you and then tomorrow you will need to stop back to see how I stepped it up and then you can see which one suits your fancy!

Do you remember on Wednesday I shared with you that my incentive gift this month is the Whisper White Craft Ink? Today I used the white ink to create my backdrop on the Marina Mist. Isn’t it fun!




Stampin' Up Lift Me Up! Bundle, Playful Backgrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set, Simple Saturday, Susan Itell - Stampin' Up!


This stamp set, Playful Background is one that I think you all might have breezed right by in the catalog! I remember that someone said in a comment last week that Polka Dots made them smile – well…this does the same thing for me! This is a fun and oh so easy background to create in a flash.




Tomorrow I will have for you the dimensions for this project but I really wanted to keep the balloon very classic in its colors. The base color is Marina Mist and I chose that because that is one color that I rarely use and I wanted to challenge myself to step of it my “color box” that I become so comfy with.

The colors in the balloon are Night of Navy and Soft Sky and the balloon itself id Sahara Sand. (I know sometimes it is hard to tell what colors they are in the photos) 😯 








Well….thoughts….you can see that it is a good old Simple Susan card for your Simple Saturday. Paper does amazing things for us and layers also do amazing things.

I think that you can easily see the endless color combinations you could do with this layout and also this sentiment is super-de-duper because it can cover many things……I am sending this to my Uncle that is 88 and in the hospital to cheer him up!

I hope that you have a fantastic day and if you live on the East Coast you know that the weather has been CRAZY….Yesterday I saw some daffodils trying to bloom and then last night it was to get around 20….no wonder so many people have colds!

I am having a GREAT GIRLS DAY today….I am meeting some downline for lunch and then to the local ribbon factory……little do they know that I am taking today’s card with me and they are going to give me some inspiration on how they see it stepped up for tomorrow…(don’t worry, I already have plan B in case we get yacking and I forget to bring it up)

Jammie shop is so easy and trust me, it is on trend. The other day I forced myself to go to Walmart (a place that really stresses me out because it is sooooo busy and huge) but I saw people actually shopping in their jammies. Heck – if they can do it in public….just think of how stylish we are shopping with our computers in our laps in the comforts of our homes! 😀
