Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty Bundle

January 13, 2020

Oh my, I was blown away with how pretty the Stampin’ Up! Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder is when I used it…especially when I used the Champagne Foil!

The Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper is so, so gorgeous with its accents of metallic champagne. I love the Pool Party, Petal Pink, and Cherry Cobbler included in the paper’s color palette. The Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon is just so elegant.

The Parisian Beauty Bundle is featured along with the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle in the Parisian Blossoms Suite on pages 14-17 of the Stampin’ Up Mini Catalog.

I like how the inside turned out, too!

Did you notice I did not even use any ink on this card? The “merci” is a die cut!

Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope Sale-a-bration Gift with Purchase

January 10, 2019

It’s Sale-a-bration time, and I have a Sale-a-bration Bundle to show you today.

With a $100 purchase, you can get this bundle for FREE! 


I used the Stone 3D Embossing Folder to create the really cool embossed gray panel. The Stitched Nested Labels Dies were great to use with the Asian themed images- CAS with some geometric elegance. I added a little bling with Red Rhinestones just because I needed to embellish it!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle with Golden Honey DSP Video Tutorial

January 8, 2020

Oh, I knew this would be my favorite in the Mini Catalog! I have had the nickname Mrs. Bee since my kids were little. One of my Sunday school kids called me Busy Bee instead of Mrs. Bee because he said I was always buzzing around. I guess I am still that way…. I can’t sit still!
Needless to say, that is how my blog got its name:)

I used the FREE Sale-a-bration gift Golden Honey Designer Series Paper with the cute Honey Bee Bundle.

Here is a video showing some tips:

I put two triangles of DSP on this one:

Look at the two fun sentiments in the Wiggle Worm Stamp Set that coordinate with the Honey Bee Bundle! There are also dies that come with the Wiggle Worm Stamp Set!

I love beeing with you   and  You Amazzze me
