Make a Cake with Stampin’ Up! Ingredients

I made a cake for a friend in Florida and I’m in California!  How did I do that!?  I used my very favorite Make a Cake stamp set that’s how.  It took a few days for him to receive it, but I’d think it was a hit.

I took a cup of left over Brights Designer Series Paper, 3/4 cup of Pacific Point card stock, a cup of Lucky Limeade from the 2011-2013 In Color collection, a stick of Very Vanilla card stock, and stamped it with the cake stamp in the Make a Cake set.  It was delicious and CALORIE FREE!

My goal was to make it a Quick & Easy guy card and I’m going to toot my horn and say, ACCOMPLISHED.  Now bake up your own colors and make a cake baby!

I have the new Spring mini catalog and I have many extra copies and I’d like to send you one.  Let me know if you want one by filling out this form here.

Have You Ever Felt Butterflies in Your Stomach?

I gush with delight because this card came out perfect!  Finishing this card made me feel butterflies in my stomach… LoL.  It took me months to figure out my style and I will never stop repeatig myself… I’m a clean and simple girl.  Well, sometimes I’m a little dirty, but nothing that a little soap won’t fix… LoL… and I’m not implying soap in my mouth. =)

I often get feedback from friends that they are not creative.  Well, I hate to break the news to you darlings, but neither am I!  Everything I create comes from an inspired picture or fabric.  As simple as a tiled floor gets me thinking, “hey, I could cut paper and make it resemble that!” =)

I challenge you to simply buy one stamp set (and ink if you don’t have it)… yes just one!  I will send you enough paper with a layout, so you can recreate it yourself to make FOUR cards.  You will be very surprised and a little beside yourself.  You will say, “SELF, I CAN MAKE A BEAUTIFUL CARD!”  This I promise you.

A Simple Teen’s Birthday Indeed!

A week and a half ago my daughter from another mother (me) became a teenager.  She’s not a typical teenager, nor a girly girl that needs to have the make-up, nor the heels, nor the fashion named clothes.  She prefers jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers… and I love her bunches!  She reminds me of myself and no matter what she doesn’t fall into peer pressure.  That’s my girl, Leila.  Now lets go play paintball again!

It wasn’t until this week that I realized Leila’s birthday is one day after my military anniversary.  I was beside myself when I shockingly remembered that July 28th was my 23rd anniversary since joining the 1% club.  WoW!  I’m still in shock… I was in the reserves for 16 of those years and so far I am still LIVING THE DREAM.
