Stampin’ Up Hawaiian Inspiration Blog Hop

If you remember, last month I participated in a great Blog Hop with fellow Hawaii trip earners.  We loved it so much we decided to do it again!

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation Hawaii Blog Hop - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
If you’re following our Hawaiian Hop, I know you enjoyed the fabulous project created by the UBER talented, Salene Kempton!  I just love that girl!

For my Hawaiian Inspiration, I am showcasing the new stamp set we received at our General Session.  It’s SO STINKIN’ CUTE!!!!  It’s called ALL ABOUT SUGAR.  What’s not to love about the title?

I found these incredible dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts while in Hawaii and the bag itself was perfect inspiration for my project.  Hey, if inspiration is staring you in the face, act on it, right?

The All about Sugar stamp set has a stamp that works perfectly with the Fry Box Big Shot die.  Don’t have the die?  Well, not to worry!  The set works great with other project too – cards, boxes, etc.

I used the fringe scissors to create a filler and check it out!  It kinda looks like a grass skirt!  The Sugar Sugar Sugar stamp is going to get a lot of use, I can tell (yes, I love sugar)

If you have an upcoming Hawaiian themed party, this party favor is just PERFECT!

Hope you enjoyed my project!  Are you ready for more Hawaiian inspiration?  Head on over to Dena Rekow’s blog!  She has a great project to share with you!

2-Minute Tuesday Tip Video – Fussy Cutting Made Simple

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
Hey Guys!  I am thrilled to be back into the swing of things and to share with you a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip that you are going to LOVE!

You all know that fussy cutting isn’t my favorite thing to do but not every stamp we have comes with a matching punch or framelit.  Today I am going to share with you the SECRET to great fussy cutting.  It’s going to change your life.  Why it took me this long to share with you, I have no clue, but TODAY is the day!

If you are unable to view the video, CLICK HERE  to view it online.

Seriously, could it be more simple?  I’m not going to lie, it takes a little practice but if you can just get yourself to stop opening and closing your scissors, you’ll have it made in the shade!

I can’t recommend PAPER SNIPS highly enough!  These are a paper crafters DREAM SCISSORS!  The tip is super sharp so you can get into those tight places without ‘bending’ the paper, which is what happens when you try to use just regular scissors.  They are small enough to handle fussy cutting and that’s what we paper crafters want.

Don’t have a pair?  Add them to your next order!  The right tools make such a difference!

I hope that today’s video was helpful!  Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Tuesday!  We’ll see you back here tomorrow for another fantastic BLOG HOP from Stampin’ Up’s Hawaii Grand Vacation Achievers!  I am SO excited to share my project with you.  It turned out SUPER cute!!!

Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!  Join me!  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
So, you know how you go to clean a room and before you know it you’ve taken it one step further into the SUPER clean?  Yeah, that’s what happened to me yesterday.  I started cleaning my stamp room and before I knew it I will rearranging, pulling stuff out and moving it all around.  It’s still a work in progress but I CAN see my desk now.  :)  I’ll keep working on this weekend.  It should be sparkling clean by next week which is good because I want to get back to shooting some videos.  Hopefully you’re ready for them too.

I know that you guys have a lot going on this weekend but I hope that you can participate in the 
STAMPIN’ GALS GONE WILD WEEKEND CHALLENGE!  I love this sketch.  It was a lot fun to work with!
Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge - May 22, 2015 - join us at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
This weekend’s sketch has SO many possibilities!  
  • The little circles can be a stamped image, cardstock, designer paper, anything!
  • The flower can be any shape you want!
  • The sentiment can go anywhere – get creative!
So, your challenge is…..over the weekend create something with this layout, share your creations on the Facebook group, and enjoy some great feedback from other Wild Girls.  Our group of ‘wild’ stampers is now over 1,700 strong!  

C’mon, you’re going to need some creative time this weekend!  Why not play along?

Are you part of the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Facebook group?  If not, come join in on the fun and be inspired by stampers from all over the world! 


CLICK HERE to join the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Facebook group

Here is what I created for this Weekend’s Challenge…
Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge - May 22, 2015 - join us at www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI used one of my favorite stamp sets and it’s on the retirement list (boo).  Million & One.  I LOVE the big font and it’s so script & pretty!

I also used Petal Potpourri from the Occasions catalog.  This incredible stamp set is NOT in the new catalog and let me just say, it’s a shame because it’s full of stamps that go with the Flower Medallion punch (which IS in the new catalog).  Trust me when I say you WANT this set!  You have until June 2nd to order it.  Just sayin’.  Buy it now or regret it and pay big bucks on eBay.

Anyway, I’m rambling…. here are my Weekend Challenge cards.

Remember to go share your creating on our Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Facebook Page! 


Have an awesome weekend everyone!  See ya Monday!

Aloha! Hawaiian Swaps!

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
Well, the jet lag has finally passed.  Whew!  That was tough!  I feel more like myself again and I’m looking forward to getting into my stamp room to work.  I have A LOT of work to do before I can stamp.  
This is what happens when I go on vacation.  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Good grief!  I must have had a thousand projects going on before I left town.  My new stamps, In Colors, and fun stamping toys came in while I was gone and rather than clean up the mess, I just tore open the box to see the new stuff!  I tried to play but as you can see, there is NO room to do anything.  So, after this post is up, guess what I will be doing today.
This is what happens when I go on vacation.  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com This is the area where I shoot my videos.  Can’t do anything right now!  Yep, it’s time for some show tunes and a lot of elbow grease.

Well, since I can’t do anything today but clean up my mess (and can I just say I don’t think my desk has ever looked this bad… EVER!) I thought I would share some of the fabulous swaps I got in Hawaii.

Today I am sharing swaps with a bit of a Hawaiian theme.  I will share some others later on but today, I think we could all use a little sunshine.  I don’t know about you but we are in flash flood watches through Monday and severe weather alert through NEXT Friday….ugh.  We have had SO much rain and we just can’t take anymore.  So much for camping over Memorial Day weekend.  Whaaaaaa!  I am so bummed.  So, let me share some happy, fun, bright, cheery, and sunshiny swaps.
A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com A fabulous swap from Stampin' Up's Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Are these just great or what?  I love swapping cards with other demonstrators and I find it awesome how different we all our in our style.

I hope that you find some great inspiration today.  I also hope that you can spend the day stamping and not cleaning.  Think of me while you’re creating!  I’ll be SLAVING away trying to clear a path!  Oh, and say a little prayer for me while I clean.  I tend to get distracted when I clean up my stamp room.  I will see a card on my desk and STOP what I’m doing to make it or get an idea that makes me drop everything.  I’m terrible about that.

Well, I’m procrastinating by sitting here typing so I had better just face the inevitable.  

Hope you all have a fantastic Thursday!  I will see you tomorrow for Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!

Dear Jet Lag…. I don’t like you. Please go away.

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comAloha my sweet stampin’ peeps!  How are you?  We had such a great vacation but I am suffering from a serious case of jet lag.  The 5 hour time difference is really hard when you get home.  When I got up at 6am it was more like 1am Hawaiian time.  That’s not easy to get over.  Today is the first day I don’t feel like someone bashed my head with a 2 x 4.  If you’ve ever suffered from jet lag, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

OH how I have missed sharing with you this past week!  Hawaii was absolutely AMAZING and absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I had never been to Hawaii and I certainly hope it won’t be the last time I get to go.  The flight is hard… 8 ½ hours long.  I filled the time catching up on thank you cards to my customers.  Check the postmark on your card.  It probably says Honolulu on it.  :)
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Notice all the space I had to work too?  NOT!  Ugh.  I hate how small planes are and I had a guy in front of me who was SURE if he kept PUSHING his seat back that it would go back another 10 inches and he could be comfortable.  Errr, I get so frustrated with people like that on a plane.  He actually konked me the head at one point while I was working.

Well, enough whining.  :)  I thought I would share a few pics.

We got to spend a morning at the Polynesian Cultural Center.  It was a stunning place to walk around and learn about the area and their customs.  Temperature was always around 80 with a nice breeze.  Heaven on earth!
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Of course, the BEST part about the Stampin’ Up Grand Vacation trips are the friends.  We spent most of our week hanging out with these rowdy girls.  I absolutely LOVE these ladies and we laughed more this week than ever before.  Our husbands all got along great so everyone had a good time.
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Oooh, do you see that NEW stamp set in our hands?  WAHOO!  We love getting the new stamps before anyone can order it!

We got home on Monday and Tuesday I was up at Ginny’s school most of the day to see her performances of “Little Shop of Horrors”.  She got the leading role at Audrey and their big performance was held while we were gone.  I was devastated to have missed it but my sister sent me little videos of her solos.  Yay!   So, as I sat by the pool, gazing at the ocean, I was enjoying listening to her sing.
IMG_6829Here’s a little video of Ginny singing, “Somewhere That’s Green” at her school’s performance.  Now, keep in mind, this was just done in the choir room so the full set isn’t there.  Doesn’t matter… Ginny is the star anyway.  :)  Proud Mom Moment!

The show is set in the 50’s so some of you will get a kick of some of the things Audrey dreams of.

She’s awesome, I know.  :)

Well, I am going to get my house cleaned up and hopefully unpack today.  I was SO exhausted yesterday I didn’t even touch the luggage.  I know some of you have been there so you get it.  Vacation is great but coming home is so hard.

I am excited to get back to stamping and sharing though!  I brought home some fabulous swaps to share with you!!

Oh, and before I close, if you placed an order and used the May Hostess Code, I will get your video link and tutorial sent out soon.  Just give me a day to get caught up and I will be in touch!  Thank you SO much for your orders while I was gone and for your patience.  You guys ROCK!

I thought I would push myself out of my comfort zone and make a masculine card.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.  I’m thinking this is perfect for my friend Daniel who just graduated from the University of Oklahoma.  Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge - May 15, 2015 - join us at www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI used the Adventure Awaits stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  Whaaaa, I haven’t used this set enough on my blog for you to fall in love with it but it’s a GREAT stamp set for the guys!  It’s available through June 2, 2015.  It has great BIG sentiments in it and I love those because they fill up a lot of space and that means less work for me.  It’s kind of hard to tell how big they are because in the catalog they are shown 50% smaller.

Here are the supplies I used on my card today.  Click on a pic to order what you might want or need!

I hope you all have a terrific weekend!  I hope you’ll come back next week for lots more cool stamping stuff!  I’ll be home on Tuesday with GREAT samples to share!!!

Swapping with my friends!

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comOne of the things I love the most about the Stampin’ Up Incentive trips are the swaps.  We each bring 25 swaps (all the same card) and Stampin’ Up swaps them out for 25 new cards created by my fellow demonstrators!  It’s so much fun to see other styles and techniques.

Here is the card I create for the Hawaii swap.  
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 -Swap cards -  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
You guys know how much I love pink and black together… add polka dots and bling and I’m in heaven!Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 -Swap cards -  www.SimplySimpleStamping.comThe ½” circle Silver Glimmer paper dots set it off nicely!

The Petal Potpourri stamp set is SO fabulous!  I am sad that it’s only available for a couple more weeks.  It ends on June 2nd.  Do you have it yet?  Oh, please do yourself a favor and order this bundle.  The stamp set and the punch are SO much fun!  The Flower Medallion punch is returning but it’s the stamp set that is such a great WOW set!  There’s nothing like it in the new catalog Guys so get it while you can.

Here are the supplies I used to create my card.  Remember, if you place a $2o or more order and use the Hostess Code VED4NWV9, you’ll receive the exclusive video & tutorial for May!

I hope you guys have an incredible Wednesday!  I hope to be back with more goodies tomorrow!

Hawaii Bound!!!!

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Just a quick update…. we SURVIVED the tornadoes!  Yay!  A lot of them fizzled and we just got hit with torrential downpours.  Sure wish we had the ability to send some of this water to California!

Thank you all so much for your prayers, support, and love that you have emailed and commented with over the last week.  It was a stressful week to say the least.  So glad that Hawaii doesn’t have tornadoes and it’s not hurricane season.

It was a pleasant Mother’s Day just hanging out with the family though.  I got a few fabulous gifts from my girls (a favorite bottle of wine and a stuffed pink flamingo….cuz I love flamingos).  One gift I bought for myself but hey, I got just what I wanted.  :)

I love Vera Bradley bags.  LOVE them!  I saw this one and it had such a great beach feel that I knew it was perfect for our trip to Hawaii.
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com And I couldn’t have been more thrilled that the luggage tags that Stampin’ Up send me actually matched!  Wahoo!!!  Is that cute or what?
Stampin' Up Grand Vacation to Hawaii 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I must say that Stampin’ Up always sends us off in style.  This was the packet they sent me filled with my itinerary, luggage tags, name tags, and plane tickets.

Hmm, not sure why Rich’s says RICH STEWART and not MR. AWESOME STEWART.  Must be a typo.  What’s up with that????

Well, as you can imagine, we are busy getting laundry done and last minute things that have to be taken care of for the kids.  

Good news!  I actually HAVE a video for you tomorrow!  I promise!  It’s all ready to go!  Now, our flight leaves at 7am so I will get it posted from the airport but it WILL be done.

I am going to try to post while I’m gone but since I don’t know what is in store, it may or may not happen.  Honestly, after last week, I may just bask in the sunshine and relax.  I just feel so bad that I have been gone or unavailable so much these past 2 weeks.  You guys know that’s not like me but just think how many GREAT ideas I will come home with!  We do a fun swap on these trips so I will have some wonderful cards to share with you.

Have a GREAT week my wonderful stamping peeps!  I’m leavin’ on a jet plane… be back on Tuesday!
