Remember Me?

Sooooo some of you may have missed my posts over the last ... yikes... 8 days... It was crazy busy with pet sitting and prep for stamp club and then stamp club and pet sitting and next thing I know it's time to get ready for THAILAND...

Once you see this note we are already on the way. But I didn't want to leave without saying THANK YOU to you my supporters!!! Without you and Stampin' Up! this adventure would not be possible. I so appreciate it and will share lots of pictures with you once I am back home... or if we have internet, I will share some right away.

I did want to show you the cute travel package from Stampin' Up before we put some tags on the luggage

 Oh and there will be no projects posted to the blog this time... but I promise I will pick up a good routine once I am back and caught up...

Here is a little clip from the resort we are going to be staying at... can't wait!

Christmas Stamp-a-Stack with Eastern Beauty

Here is the second card for our Stamp-a-Stack this month and I used a stamp set/bundle that really wasn't made for Christmas... the Eastern Beauty... but the flower called out to me to make it into a poinsettia ...

June Stamp-a-Stack... Christmas!

Today I am sharing one of this month's Stamp-a-Stack cards... and YES... we have started with Christmas cards... Can't start early enough it seems!

I just LOOOOVE the snowflake die-cuts that were created with the Seasonal Layers thinlits

The rhinestone on the largest snowflake was colored with a permanent marker. If you still have Blendabilities on hand, you can use those for that too!

Oh So Eclectic

I got to play with my newest bundle and LOVE how it turned out

Do you see that pretty glittery flower? Yes?!  Well let me tell you that this was not planned like that.  I wanted to try out the adhesive sheet AFTER I had already die-cut the detailed flower and just pressed it on the sheet to pick up the adhesive. It did it! but not just on the cardstock... it created a film... see:

I still applied it to the solid image die-cut

Of course the film could be removed with the nifty adhesive remover, but I had a better idea.... and dipped it into Dazzling Details glitter

Not bad for unplanned ;-)

New Toy Alert - Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder

Amongst some of my new toys was the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder which I had to play with right away... And when I held it (I guess) upside-down... the "ruffles" looked like waves to me... SO that just asked for the little sailboat... and here you go:
