Bubble Wrap Background


When I joined Fun Stampers Journey, I really had no expectations other than getting some new craft supplied at a discounted price.  I wanted some new ink pads and I can always use glue and other basic supplies so even if I never made it past my first quarter I could kitnap.  And FSJ has a hobbyist option that is only $50 - what did I have to loose?  Nothing, that's what.  

 What I got was so much more than a bunch of new ink pads!  My love of paper crafting is back in a big way.  I'm so enthused about this company, its products and its founder and president Richard Garay (RG)  His enthusiasm is contagious, his products are innovative and he is so generous with his time and talent.  If you are on FaceBook, check out his page RGSignature, where he often pops on to go live and share a project.  These cards came from his share last Friday night, where he demonstrated how to create this background using the amazing FSJ Silks and the bubble wrap that protects some of the items in any given FSJ order.  I just LOVED what he shared and was inspired to create these.


I am so grateful to this company for giving me back my love of creating.

Make Lemonade



This set (SS-0372) caught my eye the very first time I looked through an FSJ Inspiration Book so imagine my delight when I saw it on the Collection Jubilee Promotion, meaning I could get it for 30% off the original price.  The matching Washi tape can be colored but I really liked it just the way it was.  Harder to see is the beautiful new Sparkle Silk that I used to highlight parts of the strip,  That little bottle of loveliness is going to get it's own post very soon.  The 30% off promo ends on April 30th.

Inspired by..


I have so many stampers I admire, who inspire me with their creations and their willingness to share. This card was inspired by this post by Jennifer McGuire, a lady I've never met, but one who has "inspired" me to spend lots of crafty dollars over the years.  As soon as I saw it,  I thought of this set - 'To You (SS-0083) by Fun Stampers Journey.  And of course, it needed a few splashes of silk to finish it off.  As I type this, I have several more on order...

Addicted to CAS - Challenge #108 - SMILE!


I had some time this weekend to join in with a few challenges.  The key word this week is "SMILE"  and was inspired by the glorious Florida sunshine which always makes me smile this early in the year, before the heat and humidity sets in.  And can we all agree that very little says smile more than yellow polka dot cardstock?   A happy combination of Fun Stampers Journey and AMuse Studio products on display in my entry the Addicted To CAS challenge

Sketch Challenge - SC628



Once I find a layout I like, I do have a tendency to use it over and over and then I feel like all my cards look the same.  Sketch challenges force you out of the comfort zone which is sometimes a good thing and sometimes not so much, but when I saw this sketch on Splitcoast Stampers, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.   It uses one of the sets I got in my Fun Stampers Journey starter kit called  "Hey Honey"  
FSJ has made me love stamping all over again and I truly don't understand why more people aren't talking about this company and their products.  Those Color Silks alone...
We have an amazing Journey Bucks promotion going on right now where you can use the promo code JMWJB50 to get $50 off the regular price of the Amaze or Platinum kits.  Join the journey and come bloom with me.

CAS(E) this Sketch #206

Here's the sketch:




And here's my take - and let there be no mention of the many versions that I went through before settling on this....  


Love You So Much


Friday was happy mail day :)  New stamping supplies and more Color Silks for my collection.  Why are more people not talking about this amazing product?  





I didn't really know what to expect when the first cute little bottle showed up - but that's why I ordered it.  Love at first splash!  Now only a month later the collection has quadrupled in size and I won't be completely happy until I own them all.  No card seems complete to me without those little splashes, but that's not the only way you can use it.  You can add it directly to your stamps, and you can use it with baby wipes to create a watercolor effect.  Looking forward to experimenting more as my collection grows!

CAS(E) This sketch #204


Joining Fun Stampers Journey has rebooted my love for stamping and I am so grateful for that.  Part of that love included playing along with challenges and I am delighted to find some of my favorite challenge blogs are still active.  This is my entry for CAS(E) This Sketch # 204 using the cake stamp which is part of the FSJ "To You" stamp set which was part of my starter kit.  Isn't it adorable?

An interest in preserving memories was sort of a gateway drug into the world of papercrafting for me, but I got sidetracked along the way and never really got in to it as much as I thought I would,  Maybe this promotions  is a sign the time is right?  Check out this video to view some of the available items.  I've also loaded a shopping list. with the SKU #'s included on to the sidebar.  If you don't have a catalog, there is a copy of that on the sidebar also.  All the products can be purchased 24/7 from

Thistle Do It!

This stamp is the reason I am a brand new Journey Coach.
I've been looking for a thistle stamp for the longest time.  Although I live (very happily) in Florida, I'm Scottish and the thistle is our national emblem.  Thistle stamps are surprisingly hard to find so when I saw this in the Fun Stampers Journey catalog, I knew it must be mine.  I was also in the market for a new red stamp pad for my Christmas card making and someone had recommended the FSJ Candy Apple red so I added that to the order too, along with a few other things and before I knew it I was right there at a $50 order.
Did you know that a $50 investment can allow you to join Fun Stampers Journey?  It's perfect for people like me who have been stamping for some time and have already gathered some of the things included in the other kits, plus one of the choices of included stamp sets was already on my wish list.  I didn't have to think about that for too long - it's called Crafters Math and I bet you know exactly what I mean!

And since this is such a VIP stamp, here's another version. That little bottle in front looks like it might be nail polish but it's not, it's FSJ silk.  We'll discuss the lusciousness which is FSJ silks on a different day because today is all about the thistle.
