Typo - Stampin Up Series # 2

~ Hi there ~
I love this little retro inspired card using Stampin Products. I made this card a while back at one of the STAMP A STACKS parties I attend! What's a Stamp a Stack ? I explain it all in  My Last Post.

The sentiment is the best part's interchangeable ! Gotta love versatility.

 If you're interested in purchasing Stampin Up products...let me know and I can hook you up! Just private facebook me HERE or use the contact me form HERE. They just came out with a whole new catalog and you can view it HERE. My wish list is HUGE!

Stampin Up Series

~ Hi there ~
More changes...and here they come! Most of you probably don't know that I attend a monthly {sometimes bi-monthly} Stampin Up party called a "STAMP A STACK". This is where our crafty friends get together at out local Stampin Up demonstrator's house and create 10 FUN CARD designs. She supplies everything we need and we just show up and start crafting. It's SO much FUN! and talk about relaxing!

The basic card designs are demonstrated but we can then alter and change up our card however we like. Which I usually do a bit, just for fun and to make my cards my own.

I've never posted any of these cards before and I have a TON to show you! Hope you enjoy them!

By the way, if you like any of the elements used in these cards, they can be purchased from Stampin Up and I can hook you up, if you want to order. Just send me a private message HERE or send me a private message on Facebook HERE

This little ditty is the card I gave to my dear HUBBY for FATHER'S DAY! He loves the ocean and loves to sail.

The Deed Is Done, hellooo CAMEO

 ~ Hi there ~

It is now OFFICIAL. I packed up MISS CRICUT and all her friends, went to the UPS store yesterday afternoon and she is ON HER WAY to her new home ! I can't believe all this is happening SO FAST!

I have to ADMIT, this whole process has made me GIDDY!  The excitement I feel in my craft room is ELECTRIC! Who knew making this change would provide such a JOLT in my crafting mojo! I've been looking around at what still remains at the YHMAC headquarters, which incidentally is still alot. And I've rediscovered all my "CUTE as a BUTTON" stamps, my NEW image stamps from My Pink Stamper, my water color pencils, markers, my fabric, sewing machine, serger, ribbons, embellishments and on and on and I feel like I'm shopping in my own private Hobby Lobby!

Can't wait to start posting projects I've already made!

And not to MENTION the ARRIVAL of what is sure to be the next PRINCESS in my craftroom...MY NEW SILHOUETTE CAMEO!!!!

I ordered her yesterday from OH MY CRAFTS and they had a TERRIFIC coupon deal for 25% OFF. I was thrilled to only pay $217 TOTAL including shipping! Normally the thing goes for $269.99, and I was totally prepared to pay that :) But how much sweeter is it when you get a deal :)

I'll keep you posted on her arrival and MAIDEN cutting ceremony!

Epic ?

~ Hi there friends ~

Well did I ever have a busy afternoon YESTERDAY with my announcement that I was SELLING my beloved CRICUT EXPRESSION along with all my PROVO CRAFT products. HA, you would have thought I had made an EPIC announcement that I was pregnant or something, LOL! {which actually would have been epic since I'm way past my child bearing years}

But seriously, THANKS SO MUCH for everyone's support, advice and interest in my ...shall we call it...MID CRAFT CRISIS ???

Truth be told, I had been thinking about making this kind of move for a while. And since I had been MIA from my craft room with travel, family visitations, and well... just lack of crafting mojo. I decided it was time to SHAKE things up and make a change.

Thanks to the overwhelming response, I sold my BUNDLE within hours of posting my intent to do so. And I do apologize for those that missed out. I had to go with the only fair thing and sell it "first come, first serve". It was a SMOKING DEAL at $ 250 for EVERYTHING plus shipping. I'm so excited to pass the torch.

BUT NOW WHAT ?!  Shall Alex go on with no cutting machine ???!!!! HEAVEN'S NO !!!

SO I NEED YA'LL's HELP ! Which CUTTER do I buy ???

I've done some research and I think I am going with the Silhouette CAMEO, but want your guys input! I KNOW you guys have an opinion on SHOOT AWAY those COMMENTS!

Here's one of the many videos I found on the CAMEO.

It's kind of hysterical though.... the music sounds like the theme from the BORN IDENTITY, LOL!!! Maybe I'm going to become a papercrafting ASSASSIN, hahahaha...OKAY, I'm having too much FUN with this !!!

BUT DO stayed tuned! If you've followed my BLOG or YOU TUBE channel lately. You know I've mentioned there are MORE EXCITING CHANGES coming at the YHMAC HEADQUARTERS. This is just the tip of the iceburg :)

The Little Boat

~ Hi There ~

OH MY !!! It's been like a month since I've POSTED ! But there's a good reason for that, I PROMISE! My craft room has been lonely. Don't know, maybe I just lost my mojo temporarily, but there hasn't been much CRAFTING going on at the YHMAC headquarters....EXCEPT...everything changed yesterday, when I spent the day...and I do mean the ENTIRE DAY working on this gift for my sweet husband for Father's Day!

I know what you're thinking...#1 FATHER'S past already and # 2 Seriously Alex, any crafty GIRL can see that this was a simple vinyl cricut cut project, why would it take the entire day to make? WELL, you would be right on both counts, but's here's the SCOOP...

I originally wanted to cut out a STENCIL with my CRICUT using freezer paper and stencil PAINT the whole poem on muslim and then FRAME it.. WELL...after lots of trail and error, MOSTLY error, I had to SCRAP the whole idea and go with the vinyl. I'm really HAPPY with how it can out. I just wish I hadn't wasted all that time with the freezer paper idea.

ANYWAYS,  my husband was out of town on actual FATHER'S DAY, but comes home tonight. So I'll give it to him them :)

Too add to the history of the gift. My husband loves to sail and on June 14th we also celebrated 33 YEARS of having begun our courtship together in HIGH SCHOOL back in 1979, so the gift is also sort of romantic, to commemorate that too!

I're feeling so warm and fuzzy right now...I am :) That's us back then...

 And HERE'S the finished masterpiece, LOL! I hope he likes it :)
