My Mom's Birthday Card Using Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, Magnolia Memory dies, Stampin' Blends, created by Stampin Scrapper.  For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

My mom's birthday was last week and I wanted to make her a special card.  She turned 87 years old, which is a miracle.  My mom was not suppose to live past 3 days old.  Here she is 87 years later and outlived all of her 7 sisters.  She is definitely a miracle!

I used Stampin' Up! Blends to do the coloring of the magnolias. I used Old Olive, Rococo Rose and Petal Pink.  If you want any of the Blends individually, order now as they are on the retirement list as available for individual purchase.  When the supplies run out or the new Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 annual catalog goes live on June 3rd, you will only be able to purchase them as a combo pack.  In the combo pack you will get one dark and one light.

The above picture shows how the top flap of the card looks when you open the card.  You will cut your paper as shown in the diagram below.  You will then cut out the large magnolia flower and adhere to the top flap.  It is such a striking and beautiful card.  I know she is going to love it!  I sure do.

Since I am redoing my craftroom I am going through things before I put them back.  While I was doing that I found the above Pressed Petals Journal.  I then looked through the mini catalog for ideas on what stamp set to use.  In the back of the catalog there are ideas on how to use a stamp set different ways.  I was immediately drawn to the Timeless Tulips because of the colors they used.

You can download the flyer with all of the products with the link below.  
 

Here is a video to show you the product

 

I am going to be honest and say that I wasn't sure about this bundle when I saw it on the computer.  However, knowing Stampin' Up! and their awesome products I ordered the whole bundle.  Boy, was I wrong!  This suite is beautiful!  I love the stamp sets and dies, the Glided Gems are beautiful and the ribbon is perfect.  I can't wait until I get time to play with this suite. 

It might be a little bit before I can play with the suite, because this is what my craft room looks like right now.  

IMG_0773

I have been really struggling with my creativity the last couple of weeks and knew that I needed to do something to get my mojo back.  I know part of it is not being able to have classes, not seeing my friends, but a big part of it is exhaustion.  Right now I am still working my daycare as I have parents in the health industry that still need to work, so I am taking care of their children.  I am also homeschooling 3 of my angels grade preschool, first and third grade.  Needless to say, life is keeping me busy.   I am so blessed that I get to help out the families of my angels.  This is why you haven't seen much of me lately.  I am trying to get a routine down, so I can get back to doing all of my Stampin' Up! projects.  

As I was sitting in my craft room the other day looking around I had a great idea.  I don't think Mr. Wonderful is thinking this is such a great idea now that he started working on it with me.  LOL  I needed to brighten up my craft room!  So I am!  Here is a picture of one of the walls done.  This is going to take us quite a while to finish as this is also where the kids take their naps.  We are only able to do a wall a weekend.  We got the biggest wall done yesterday.  I love it!  

IMG_0775What do you think?  This wall is very long, 39 feet!  My stampin studio is in my basement, so I have some long walls that need to be painted.  Now, you know why we are breaking up this project.  I can't believe what a difference it makes with just one wall painted.  I can't wait to see when they are all done! This is really going to help my mood and get me excited about creating again. 

I am going to really have to get things done this week as we are going to paint the wall with the majority of my crafting supplies and my craft table this weekend.  Before I am putting anything back I am going through everything and making sure I really want it back in my craft room.  I have a feeling I am going to be having a craft sale sometime this summer. 

I hope all of you are doing well and are able to keep up your spirits during this difficult time.  We are trying our best in our home.  We all made the decision that we are going to deal with it with laughter.  I have to say, I haven't laughed this much in a long time and it is good for my soul. 

I am sending lots of love and hugs to each one of you!   I miss you all so much!  Have a great day.

I can't believe it is time to be thinking about the retirement of the Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Colors.  I wanted to make a card that had all of the In Colors and was easy and fast to make.  I needed to make my thank you cards that I was going to send to everyone who ordered from me during Sale-A-Bration.  I was able to make a lot of these cards in a short amount of time.  I am very thankful for #simplestamping

The above In Colors will be retiring this year. The retirement list for the annual and mini catalogs will be coming out later this month.  Now is the time to get them before they sell out.  The ink, refills, paper and embellishments in the In Colors will sell out fast.  

This is also the time to get your favorite products that you would like from both catalogs.  Once the retirement list comes out, everything, except the stamps, will be while supplies last.
