Painted Harvest

I have exciting news today.  I’ve been asked to be a designer for the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew!  I’ve been praying that I would get on another design team, but was shocked when I got the email. 🙂  I get to design five projects each month for Sept-Dec. 2017. The best part is all of you can play along.

The first challenge was to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) project of your choosing with nature and fall in mind. Then create a second project, amped up with more enrichments, additions, layers, really step it up.

Stampin Up Clean and Simple (CAS) Painted Harvest card designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #clean&simple4u

I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake (dots).  The Painted Harvest stamp set is so easy to use and very versatile.

On the second card I “stepped it up” by fussy cutting a flower and popping it up on a dimensional with Linen Thread behind it.  I also added Linen thread to the banner.  I used Clear Emboss Powder and heat embossed the sentiment.  That always looks cool in real life.  I doubt you can tell by the picture.  I also added a Crushed Curry layer on the card.  The envelope looks cute with the flower in the corner.

My Irish twins!  I love this picture! This was the first day of Kindergarten for Keegan and First Grade for Abby.  If you look close you can see there are pink beads crocheted to Abby’s socks.  My sweet Grandma, Grandma Olson, taught me how to crochet well enough that I could add beads to Abby’s socks to match her outfits.  I was so thrilled to have a girl that I did crazy things like crocheting beads on socks and making handmade hair pieces to go on Abby’s ponytail or pigtails.  Wow, I miss those days.  I thought I’d give you an update on Abby.  She loves being at college.  She’s made lots of great friends, found a church and youth group she likes, gets along great with her room mate, and loves her classes, especially Organic Chemistry.  There’s even a cute boy I hear about from time to time. I get texts from her that say, “I’m so happy” and “I love Organic Chemistry!”  A few months ago I couldn’t imagine not seeing and talking to Abby everyday.  Today it is easier knowing that she is doing what she loves and is in a very good place.  I pray things continue to go well for Abby and she thrives at college and stays safe.

Steve just came in to see what I was up to.  I showed him the Irish Twin picture and we both got tears in our eyes.  I’m not sure we are ready to be emptynesters. 🙂

Speaking of my Superman, (husband Steve), he got his best time ever in his Sprint Triathlon last weekend.  He was pleased and decided he wants to do triathlons again next summer.  His goal is to get a medal (top 3) in his age division.  He’s gotten fourth or fifth a few times during the last three summers but never has made it to the medal stand.  Three years ago he lost 50lbs and did his very first triathlon.

Anything but the Holidays Blog Hop

My Mom has been a quilter for as long as I can remember.  She made quilts for each of my kids when they were little and again each one got a quilt when they graduated from high school.  When I saw the Christmas Quilt Bundle in the new 2017-18 Holiday catalog, I knew I would purchase it and use it year round, not just for Christmas.  My paper quilts are quick and easy, while my Mom’s quilts take months to create.

I enjoy making 3×3 cards and envelopes to give as gift sets.  My colors are Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.

Don’t you love these new Mini Pizza Boxes on page 44 of the Holiday catalog?! You get 8 boxes for only $6.  These are food safe.  Since Superman (my husband Steve) loves making fudge for Christmas gifts, I ordered extras to decorate for this year’s fudge boxes.  You can also use them to give cookies, 3×3 cards, gift cards, jewelry and more.
