Cool Treats Meets A Little Foxy

Just a quick, easy card featuring the Cool Treats stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that will be carrying over to the new 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!  I also used the designer series paper paper pack called A Little Foxy.  I love the sweet gray heart patterns.  The main image is cut using the Stitched Framelits and also used the layering oval framelits.  Hope you have a blessed day!!

April RemARKably Creative Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful hop showcasing the fabulous Nailed It Bundle in the 2017 Spring Occasions Catalog!!  I chose to create a scrapbook page honoring my Daddy who is the most wonderful man in my life!! I am so incredibly blessed (and spoiled) to have the Daddy that I have and want to honor him (because I love him so much!)

I was extremely excited to see this Suite of products in the mini as there is not much in the line of manly products in the main catty, a few but it’s slim pickings for sure!  My Dad is the ultimate handyman so I’m sure that I will get tons of mileage out of this set.

Hope you enjoy my project and be sure to check out Susan Murphy the next blog in the hop for more wonderful ideas for this fantastic bundle of products! Please subscribe to my blog (top right) and Facebook to keep up with all the latest Stampin’ Up! news and specials, Have a blessed day!

I’m in love with all five of the new colors, they are fantastic! This new Suite will be in the 2017-2018 catalog beginning June 1, 2017.

I got the beginning stampers bundle and will be showcasing several projects that can be made with this beautiful collection.  This sweet, note card took me about five minutes and is perfect for any occasion.  Enjoy and keep watch for more projects with this new product. Have a blessed day!

Strawberry Jam

My hands down favorite way (other than eating right out of the field) to use fresh strawberries is to make some sweet, sweet Strawberry Jam. This particular recipe can also be used as ice cream topping and when I make this my son, Britt is my biggest fan!  My wonderful husband gave me a Ball Jam and Jelly Maker for my birthday four years ago and I’ve made many, many batches of this Jam.  I use the jam recipe that came with my maker, but here is a wonderful lower sugar recipe that you cook on the stove top!  Always, always follow safe canning practices when preserving foods that you feed your friends and family.  Ball Canning has safe recipes and publishes a wonderful book every couple of years that has current safe preserving practices.

I’ve created this cute jar topper and label using the Cool Treats bundle and Tasty Treats designer series paper.  The topper is cut using the layering circle framelits.


Hope you enjoy this sweet project and are encouraged to make some sweet gifts for your friend and family. Have a Blessed day.
