November is Gratitude Month

At Stampin' Up!, I am super fortunate that teamwork and inspiration are an integral part of the culture.  Both of those concepts are far from foreign in Direct Sales, but with the team I've joined up with, they are palpable and lived on a day-to-day basis. 

I was inspired by one of my Team Leader's, Lisa Pretto, to make and send someone a card of gratitude for every day during the month of November.  That's 30 cards, folks!  I'm a little intimidated by this, especially with Christmas right around the corner (I get the feeling that Christmas seems to kick into high-gear before the Halloween candy is even inspected; and I am certainly no exception to that rule.)  BUT, Lisa's enabling me to take a moment each. and. every. day. to STOP and reflect on the people who bless my life and encourage me to reach out to them and remind them of how much I appreciate them.  Thank you, Lisa.

Since it's my life mission to help and inspire others, I challenge you to do the same!  It's scary, I know, but I'll help you by sharing with you five different quick, easy, and simple cards that you can make and send to the important people in your life.  And, if you follow me on Instagram, I'll share a new card that I'm sending out every single day!!  See, you're helping keep me accountable to my challenge!

So without further ado, here are five cards to jump-start your creativity and inspire you to make a card and send a card and share your gratitude with others.






When you make and send your cards, share them with me on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtags: #IMadeACardAndSentACard #PapercraftingPassionistaInspiredMe

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
