Blogging Friends Blog Hop – Annual Catalog

Good morning my Sunday friends!

Time for a fun round of blogging with my –

As you can see, the theme is the Annual Catalog.

I threw a dart at the wall to decide what to use because I like soo many of the new things.

The winner was the Blow Out the Candles Bundle!

libbystamps, stampin up, Blow Out the Candles, Blow Out the Candles Bundle, Candles & Confetti Framelits, BFBH

I love the framelit border! You have to cut it separate for the top and the bottom. That’s awesome because you can use it on multiple sizes of cards!

The stamped image and the balloons are also from the bundle! It’s just too cute!

It’s finished off with the Silver & Whisper White Baker’s Twine on the balloons. The balloons are also in the set.

Simple an adorable birthday suitable for anyone, including our guy friends!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – CASE a Blog Hop Member

Happy Easter my friends! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and see my creations!

I decided to CASE this post from Mary Blocher of Power Huff stamping. Take a quick peek, but come right back so you can follow the hop! She made a set of narrow cards using this Designer Series Paper, oval and circle framelits, and flowers.

These are my cards –

libbystamps, stampin up, Yay You, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 1/2 Circle, Petal Passion DSP, BFBH, blog hop

They are the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes from the Occasions Mini. The set comes with Whisper White, but I made mine in these soon to be retiring In-Colors. These are cut 9 x 2 1/2, scored at 4 1/2.

Here is an up close of each card and a little about them –

This is Peekaboo Peach. I used two different framelits on the set, Petals & More and Stitched Shapes. I have gotten so much use from these two – well worth the investment!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – February – Red

Happy first day of February and, happy Three Post Thursday!

My second post is a blog hop for a group of us we call ourselves, Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

As you can see, our theme is Red.

What a bold color to feature, and my favorite color by the way!

I love using as much as I can when I create. Here is the perfect example…..

First card –

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Petal Palette, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Mini Heart, Petal Pair EF, Everyday Label

And, my second card –

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Petal Palette, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Mini Heart, Petal Pair EF, Everyday Label

See how the two cards use the negative and the positive cut out? And, they both use similar elements.

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Petal Palette, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Mini Heart, Petal Pair EF, Everyday Label

Sentiment is from the same stamp set, Petal Palette, either framelit cut or punched out.

Both cards use the same embossing folder, Petal Pair. And, heart cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits.

I hope you love these two cards and see just how to use all pieces when creating! Check out my other posts for today too – I have lots to share!

Blog hops are a continuous loop of blog that you travel to see their creations. Going forward, you’ll head over to, Mary, going back, you head to Crystal. Please take the time to leave a comment. I love hearing from you!

Blogging friends Blog Hop – January – Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Welcome to the first post of the year!!!! Whoop! Whoop!

As you can see, our theme this month is Baby, It’s Cold Outside.

Huh……that could mean anything! So, I went with the obvious and when it’s cold outside, I want to warm up inside. What better way to do that than with coffee or hot chocolate!

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Balloon Celebration, Coffee Cafe, Merry Cafe, Coffee Cup Framelits, Coffee Cafe Bundle, Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes

These are smaller cards meant to be left by the coffee maker as an invitation to join me for a warm beverage! I often do this – it lets others know they are loved!

I used some free (earned during Sale-a-Bration) Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes that I cut in half to make these smaller cards. The coffee mug on the left, I added a handle to the cup by using the framelit letter ‘C’. So easy! The other cup card is just a standard coffee cup framelit.

Sale-a-Bration starts January 3 and runs through March 31, 2018. For every $50 (USD) purchased, you will receive a free item of your choice from the Sale-a-Bration catalog! I’d love to send you a catalog – just ask! 

Going forward, you’ll head over to, Mary, going back, you head to Anna. Please take the time to leave a comment. I love hearing from you!
