I had this idea in my head.  I had no idea if it would work or be hideous.  Guess what?  It was even cuter than I thought it would be!!!

I really love coming up with Flash Card Mash Ups.  What a great way to use Flash Cards but mix up some colors too!

Here are the three cards that I will be creating in today’s video.

Fiddler On The Roof

I just have to tell you about last night!  We went to see “Fiddler of the Roof” and it was the most AMAZING production I have ever seen.  It was like nothing I had ever seen before.

Typically a show has a special performance for the hearing impaired.  There are people who interpret with sign language so that they can enjoy theatre as well.  Well, Fiddler did something COMPLETELY different.  First of all, 2 of the supporting lead actors were completely deaf.  They signed their lines while 2 other actors spoke their words.  The other actors in the show would have to sign their lines to these two when they were on stage (FYI, these 2 actors have performed on Broadway in another show using this same idea). Then there were 2 more interpreters who also signed the lines for the leading actors and they were “part” of the show as well.  Characters interacted with them and it was just amazing!

Like any musical, choreography is a big part of the show so they made sign language part of the choreography.  It was so magical to watch.  My favorite scene though, was the wedding and the song (you probably know it) “Sunrise, Sunset“.  On the last chorus, the orchestra went silent, as did the actors, and the entire song was signed.  You could have heard a pin drop!  My eyes are watery just thinking about it.  It was just breathtaking.

So so very glad we bought tickets to the show!  It was a great night!

Cupcakes just make me happy.  What is it about all that icing piled HIGH that just makes my mouth water?  This stamp set is like no other that Stampin’ Up has put out before.  It has a true “realistic” look to it.  It’s also a 3-Step stamp set so you can get lots of color dimension with your stamped images too.  I am crazy about all the ways you can use this set.  Let me show you some ideas from my demonstrator friends who have shared with me.

At the Stamping Retreat I attended last week, this was one of the swaps I received from my friend Lee.  Lee is a part of Creativate, a group of demonstrators that I work with to train the demonstrators who are on our teams.  It’s a wonderful group of ladies that I LOVE creating with.  At our retreat, we all swapped (4) cards with each other and Lee’s was a favorite of mine.  Her cards looked good enough to eat!

Tonight is DATE NIGHT!  You know you’re old when date night is on a Wednesday night.  lol  Actually, we have theatre tickets to go see “Fiddler on the Roof” – one of my FAVORITE shows.  It’s a “tissue” show though.  I cry several times whenever I see it.  Had to get the night off of rehearsal to see it and I am super excited!  Oh, and we will be attending the theatre in Mr. Awesome’s brand new Ford F150.  The Stewarts now own their very first truck!  We just took possession of it this afternoon so the dealership could detail it and add a few features to it (heated seats are a MUST HAVE).

We have named the truck Bruce (the shark from Finding Nemo) and the truck’s tag line is “Fiats are Friends, Not Food”.  If you are familiar with Finding Nemo, you get it.  🙂

Mr. Awesome is SO happy and I am so happy for him.  Bless his heart, he hasn’t had a new car in a LONG time and it was time to find a better vehicle to pull the camper.  No lie, you guys, he has been grinning non-stop since Monday.  I love seeing him like this and I am going to love not having a fear that our SUV isn’t big enough to get the camper home.  Now I can camp without fear.  I’ll try to post a picture of it soon.  Border

I hope you’ll join me tomorrow because I have a great video for you.  It’s a new FLASH CARD that I think you are going to love!  Join me then!  Have a great Wednesday!

It’s been a rough morning, guys.  No coffee. <scream!!!>  Off to a doctor’s visit for blood work so no food or drink until after it’s over.  Oh Lord help me!  Gotta get through this and then my first stop is Starbucks.  Nothing serious, by the way.  Just a physical that is long overdue.  Doctor visits aren’t my favorite thing and I have put it off for way too long.

With that said, I need to run but I will see you guys tomorrow!  Make it a GREAT day!!!

I Love Presents!!!!

Unique Gift Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 20, 2016 blog post

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I am so happy to be back home from my fabulous Creativate Retreat.  I had the most marvelous time and my head is so full of great ideas.

You know how it is when you come home from a trip – laundry, catching up on emails, etc. but I did want to share with you a wonderful present I received from one of the demonstrators who was there.

Unique Gift Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 20, 2016 blog post Unique Gift Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 20, 2016 blog post

Lisa made me this beautiful chevron bag but do you see how she decorated it? Just a simple belly band a focal image.  What a GREAT idea!  She even cut my initial from the new Large Letter Framelits and the Gold Glimmer paper.  So cute!

Now, check out what was inside…

Unique Gift Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 20, 2016 blog post Unique Gift Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 20, 2016 blog post

…a note pad, decorated binder clips…

…chocolate (hello!) and a cute little composition notebook.

What a great way to use your creativity to create a gift that is totally unique!  She knows I love black, pink, and white and so I was so touched by her present.  I wanted to share this with you to help spark some creativity the next time you’re searching for a fun gift that you can create with stamps, ink, and paper.

I’m going to do my best to share what products Lisa used to create all of this but when you create your own, just look for things that match your purchased bag and go from there.  To order any of the products on this project, just click a pic to order!

I am going to get back to the laundry (boo, no fun).  If you placed an order while I was gone, I will be mailing out your “Let’s Get Creative” exclusive video & tutorial this afternoon along with a fun thank you card to go out in the mail.  I appreciate your orders SO much!  THANK YOU!
