AYOPA - New Word

Okay, I have a new word "acronym" for all those husbands out there who don't understand how awesome Pinterest is.  It is AYOPA.  I hear it everyday~Living the .  It seems like everytime my husband walks in the room he asks "Are you on Pinterest Again", so I have decided to just shorten it for him.  Hence my new word AYOPA.  And of course, I can answer AYUPA, no acronym, just sound it out. Uh, Yup!!!  He sure doesn't mind eating all those delicious treats and snacks that I have to create every time I see a new pinned recipe.  Does he love it?  AYUP!!!


Candy Conversations!

I just love this new stamp, It is in the current Occasions Mini Catalog

Candy Conversations Single Stamp (Wood-Mount Only #125560, $8.95).  Ink them up in a single color or apply multiple colors with Stampin' Write Markers.  Punch them out individually with the Stampin' Up! Small Heart Punch.  Added bonus us more fun with candy!  On this one, I used the new Clear Embossing that smells like cherries. Cherry-Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder (127035) .  As I was stamping, my husband walking by and said "what are you making, it smells good, like candy!"

With Sympathy~

I hate hearing the news of loved ones losing loved ones.  I am however very thankful to be able to create them something from the heart when I hear of this news.  I always try to send out sympathy cards, just to let them know I care and I am thinking about them.  I hate to make them because of what they represent.  However, I believe, if they have Jesus in their hearts, they are much happier with Him than they could ever be here with us, so for that I am thankful.  When I make these cards, the inspiration seems to just come so easily and they always end up looking beautiful.  I love that because I love my friends and family!

It's Candy Time!

Valentine's Season is so much fun because there are so many candies out there to play with!  I saw the pixy stix and thought to myself " those would make perfect stems for flowers.  So I grabbed some punches, papers, brads and glue and went to work.  Took only about three minutes and viola', it was complete!  What kind of candy creations will you come up with in this season of candies and cards?

I got my new little heart punch!

Made with the little heart punch and a square punch - EASY!

I recently purchased a little heart punch (from Stampin' UP! of course).  It is so much fun for valentine day.  Here are two cards I made using the heart punch.  I think it add such character to these cards.  You can do so much with just a couple pieces of paper and a craft punch.  I also love the polka dot ribbon!

Sometimes it just comes to you

Well, I sat down to make a few more Valentine's cards and as I was using my Stampin' Up! Big Shot and the Love Letterpress, I thought "this would make a great baby background"  I mean, who doesn't L-O-V-E babies, right?  So I quickly came up with this baby card, and I used both Pink and Blue (with a yellow ribbon), so it is perfect for any gender.  I love when inspiration just hits.  I think, I will use this letterpress plate for every baby card I make from now on.  I can't wait to play around with it some more!

First Valentine's Cards of the year

Wow, Christmas was just over a week ago and here I am already thinking to Valentine's Day.  I had so much fun making things this Christmas for people and I am already thinking how much I do for them for Valentine's Day.  My family and friends are going to think I am crazy, I just know it.  I have never given them things throughout the year, but this year I am making a conscious effort to really care for my family and friends and I think cards and small gifts are an easy way to show them how special they are.  Here are the first two valentine's I made. (Of course, I made them almost completely out of Stampin' Up! products)  Hope you like them!
