April 2016

My room is almost clean so it's time to play!

Well the Lord must have known I needed to be indoors today but very thankful for the rain we are getting in Minnesota!  The grass is a beautiful shade of green already and trees are coming back to life! 

Today I want to share the Paper Pumpkin kit for April.  Now I will be honest...when I saw this I was skeptical but after I got it all together, I was pleasantly surprise!  Take a look!

Final wreath

What do you think?  I was very happy when I finished and was shocked with how much extras we got with this kit.  What to do, what to do.....I know, make a card!  Here is what I came up with:

Wreath alternate

I think it turned out pretty cute and hope you agree!  Now for the fun part, how about your very own Paper Pumpkin kit?!?!  I would love to make that reality come true for you and have one small question to complete this challenge.  What color(s) do you think about when it rains?  Do you think of rainbows or only see grey?  I would love to hear it!  Those that respond to me in any way, shape or form by April 29th, will be entered to win their very own Paper Pumpkin kit featured below:


Can't wait to hear from you and now back to creating!  Thanks for stopping by!


And I am back home from #onstage2016 and LOVING my new catalog!

Well I am back from Salt Lake City and boy did we have some fun!  I have to say, the best part of Stampin Up! events are all the new friends I meet!

Let the fun begin

This year I was fortunate enough to celebrate my 10 year anniversary with Stampin Up!  The time went EXTREMELY fast and have learned A LOT in that time!

Me and 10

It seems like yesterday when I signed up to "just get the discount" and now, I can't imagine my life without each and every soul I have had the pleasure to meet because of my love of stamping!  I am so proud of my team of Krumm Cakes and as equally proud to provide the most amazing stamping products to all my customers!  If you ever wanted to feel part of something that makes you smile from ear to ear, I have the perfect opportunity for you!  And who couldn't use a stamp set or two?

The evolution of my Swap...

Hello stampin friends!  I am busy getting ready for our On Stage event in sunny Salt Lake City!  We are leaving tomorrow and I am so excited!  One of my favorite activities while attending Stampin Up! events is to swap.  What is a swap you say?  Well this is where I come up with a favorite project ideas, then I mass produce them and bring them to swap with  2,000+ of my closest stampin friends!  This is great because the ideas blow my mind every year! 

So I am working on a Birthday card idea and had fun playing with the It's My Party Designer Series Paper stack featured in the Handmade from the Heart Occasions Catalog.  Here are some variations I came up with:

Swaps 2


So this kind of project is EXACTLY why I fell in love with Stampin Up!  When I find fun paper to work with, SU tells me every color that makes up this paper.  When I need to find cardstock or matching ribbon...I know exactly where to get it, what color it is and know that my project will look beautifully coordinated each and every time.  Have you ever found that prefect, pretty paper in a chain store, and when you get it home, you can't make it work in your project because nothing matches?  That is how I started crafting and it drove me nuts!  Especially the color Red....oh red you are so beautiful but oh so hard to match..... 

This paper pack features Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaroon and Sahara Sand.  Here is a look of all of them together:

Swaps all

I don't want to share which one made the cut but I am so happy with each one and I think they all have their own personality!  Fun right?  Thanks for stopping by and check back later this week to see all that I learn in Salt Lake and see which swaps I took with me! 

Have a great rest of your day!
