    Springtime Impressions for a Challenge and Team swap

    New learning curve… We are all trying to navigate in new ways. Last night was our Team meeting and due to the current “situation” we… All learned how to do it via Zoom. In addition to that we had a beautiful guest. It was very exciting for me to have the opportunity to invite Shannon West from Stampin’ Up!. Certainly a fun surprise for my team! We were honored to have her join us and pass on some great information. Also thank you for all the help! Anyway… Creating this beautiful set has a three fold purpose. One was for my team swap and really, who couldn’t use a healing…

    Pleased as PUNCH

    Still having fun with this DSP! This started out as a $1 frame…. hummmm, mid month? I know a bonus!

A FUN find … the “Hello Sunshine” fits in…

    Heartfelt for It Started with a $1

    Here is where it started… I saw these cute jars at the Dollar Tree. Soo many possibilities! But where to begin?? hummmm Craft Whisper White ink… just for the center section.

Ohhh Valentine’s Day goodies! Okay, pull out the Heartfelt bundle (153775) the Stitched Be Mine dies (148527) and the New Spritzer bottle that I made for the QWick and WOW! Video. Whisper White thick cardstock is spritzed with the shimmer paint. Check the video here! The From…
