Follow Your Art...It's good for you...body, mind, and soul!

This Follow Your Art card I received in a demonstrator card swap was created Stampin' Up! demonstrator Lynn Feldkamp. It's filled with fun elements including many things I use in my Stampin' Up! business regularly...ribbons, baker's twine, buttons, and of course, stamps, ink, and paper. The colors are bright and cheery. Want to make this card too? Great because I've made it easy for you to do so with my free PDF Project Sheet.

From Garden Flowers to Pressed Petals

Remember the craft of drying flowers or pressing them in between the pages of a book? It's been a long time since I tried doing either of these, but I can certainly enjoy the look of pretty pressed flowers using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! The Pressed Petals Suite is filled with loads of pretty products to coordinate with this beautiful paper. Gratitude, support, and love are themes used to describe this gorgeous product suite.

My blog post today contains 2 videos, one an introduction to the Pressed Petals Products Suite, the second from today's Stampin' Peace VIP Group Facebook Live filled with cards and creative ideas. I hope you'll watch and enjoy both! In addition, I've posted pictures of 3 cards using the Pressed Petals Washi Tape that I'll be mailing to 3 lucky viewers of today's Facebook Live.

Magnolia Lane Gift

What's better than doing what you love? Doing what you love with friends who love what they do. I'm so grateful to the many friends I have made in my nearly 11 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. A few weeks ago, I spent a weekend crafting with a few of these people. It was a great weekend to work on my stamping projects, talk and share and laugh with good friends, and to celebrate doing what we love!

IMG_1342

Here is a little gift I made for each of my friends. The gift is small and the project simple, but my heart is full of friendship and gratitude for the people who received them. I used a 4" x 4" piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper behind the glass. I stamped the large Magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, colored it with Stampin' Blends, and cut it out with the Magnolia Memory Die. The sentiment is from the Fable Friends Stamp Set. You can find all of these products in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. If you are not currently working with a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to earn your business. I'd be happy to mail you a new catalog. Simply email me your full name and address.

Sentimental Rose Collage

I decided after running my first ever Quarter Marathon at age 54 that I would make a little something for myself as a reward and a reminder that I am Strong & Beautiful & Resilient. I used the Sentimental Rose stamp set and supplies from my April Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love this little gift to myself and hope you like it too! The Strong & Beautiful stamp set has been one of my favorites from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. So many great sentiments for strong women and girls!
