Studio G Products at Walmart

Hey everyone!

ColorQ challenge and Freshly Made Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone!!

So back to work means little time for crafting and posting during the week :( But since it's now the weekend, I've had plenty of time to craft and film some videos for you!!

I went to Walmart today to get some medicine since I wasn't feeling too well this morning (I feel just fine now... weird) and I ended up in the craft aisle... I bought B is for Boy, the Cricut lite cartridge (which I have been waiting to get for months and finally decided to actually get). But I also noticed that they had a whole new line of Studio G products for Valentine's Day!!! Everything from Studio G is only $0.97!!! Granted it's probably not as good of quality as Stampin' Up, but there's some cute things in there that won't break the bank if you don't have a lot of money to spend on crafting items. I'm uploading a video of some of their new products, so I'll post that as soon as it uploads.

So anyway, I finally had a chance to visit my craft room, and I decided to do the colorQ color challenge over at The challenge this week is to use the colors Pretty in Pink, Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Melon Mambo.

I also decided to try using a sketch for inspiration, so I chose to do the Freshly Made Sketch at 

Here is my finished product.
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White by Stampin' Up
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Versamark
Stamp Sets: "You are Loved" - Stampin' Up
Love Blossoms Wheel - Stampin' Up
"Flower and Friendship" by My Pink Stamper
Ribbon: Melon Mambo 1/2" Grograin Polka Dot
Melon Mambo and Silver embossing Powder
Corner Rounder
Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz buttons

I have a lot more videos for you! I changed my craft room around, I filmed the Studio G products, I have a short video of another card, and I also have a video for this card. I will post them as soon as I get them uploaded!

Have a wonderful night everyone :)

Hi everyone!

In keeping with the theme of Stampin' Up's new Occasions Mini, I have made a card with all new products from the Twitterpated product suite. I am loving the products in this suite! I especially love the new pleated satin ribbon :) It is one of my favorites in the new catalog! I used the stamp sets Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts for this one.

Thanks for watching! Have a wonderful night! I'm off to a scrapbook club tomorrow morning with my Stampin' Up demonstrator Michele. I love hanging out with her and getting ideas from her! We're also going to check out a possible photographer for the wedding. We already got our date saved/booked at the venue! We just have to sign the contract and give them the deposit! So excited! Though Andy is not... lol... looking at the price tag. Sorry honey...

Good night!

Stampin' Up Occasion Mini 2012

Hey everyone!!

The new Stampin' Up Occasions Mini is now available for purchase! So I have put together a little video that shows you all the new products in the catalog. I included the products I actually had as well as talked about the ones that I haven't ordered yet. I want pretty much everything in there... But of course everything costs so much :(

Anyway, enjoy! I've already got a video uploading with a card that I made using new products as well as pictures of a card made from the Sale-a-bration products. Look for those in the next couple days as well!

Also, Andy finished making my stamp pad holder yesterday! I'll take pictures and post them when I get a chance! I love it :) Thank you baby!!
