Celebrate!

Celebrate 2

Hi, friends! How are you?

Today I’m celebrating my blogiversary! One year ago today, I posted my very first ever blog post. It has been such a rewarding year getting to know my readers and sharing the endless possibilities of Stampin’ Up! with all of you.

And can you think of any better way to celebrate than a new box of Stampin’ Up! goodies? I sure can’t! My box arrived yesterday and I swear I was making cards in my dreams all night. So happy I could finally get to it in real life!

I am thrilled that Stampin’ Up! introduced clear sequins in the new catalog. I love the soft accent they bring to a card. Crystal Effects works beautifully for gluing them on.

I’m also crazy for the new stamp set “Garden In Bloom.” The set includes two and three step stamps- be still my stampin’ addicted heart! I added an old goodie from the “Work of Art” set. I was inspired to use watercolors on the chevron stamp because of this amazing card. The new Expressions Natural Elements added the perfect finishing touch.
