Today is the last day of the Glitter Queen Blog Hop and it has been a blast!

bermuda wreath   wreath calypso

Okay, I was surfing YouTube the other day and came across a video that was so awesome! This lady took a single flower from the stamp set “Simply Wonderful” (page 16 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and made a wreath out of it. I was so excited to try it! And I knew exactly what I wanted to put in the center of this wreath. Yep, a Lollie!

I just fell in love with this wreath! So many ways to use it! Here I used the butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies which are available now in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.  I used Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay on this card. The size of the card is 4″x 4″.

melon thank you

After making the 4 x 4″ cards, I decided to adapt the wreath to fit 3 x 3″ cards.  They turned out great! These ones here are Melon Mambo.

burmuda thankyou


On these 3 x 3″ cards I used the “Butterfly Basics” stamp set and coordinating “Butterflies” Thinlits die. (Also in the Occasions catalog.) This lacy butterfly if so pretty.

Elegant Eggplant was used on these cards.

Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day Two of Three






I have often wished I could make my own bag with Designer Series Paper that would be big enough to hold a stamp set.


I was surfing YouTube one day and came across a video that was perfect for making such a bag! This one above I made with the “Best Day Ever” free paper that is available right now from Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration with a $50.00 or more purchase.  And the buttons and ribbon called “Best Day Ever Accessory Pack” are also available for free with a $50.00 or more order.


This bag I made with retired Designer Series Paper. What a great way to use up some of the paper that has been sitting around! And what better way to decorate then with a Lolly or Rosette?!


This photo shows the size of the bag. It easily holds a stamp set plus room for lots more. It takes 2, 12×12″ sheets of paper. It measures  7″ tall x 6″ wide x 3″ deep. Very quick and easy to put together. Now I can have matching bag and card! Click here to watch the video.

Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day One of Three





large lolly

I am SO excited! This is my first blog hop to participate in. My team members, “The Glitter Queens,” invited me. This will be a 3 day blog hop so be sure to stop by tomorrow and Wednesday to see what special items we’ve chosen for you.


I love, love, love, to make Lollies or Rosettes. This past Christmas I made a lot of them. I added ribbon and hung them on gifts (see photo above), I did a class for them, and I handed them out and decorated my tree with them. Everyone loved them!

gift trio

Unfortunately, I only have a few left and I didn’t take pictures of the ones I gave away.


They don’t all have to be round!  (As I placed this on the red background to take a picture today, I thought, “What a pretty card this would make.”)

first postit

Also this past Christmas I made a bunch of Post-It note holders out of chip board and coasters. I made so many in fact, that I still have quite a stash of them. The one above is my very first one. I cut the chip board and sanded and inked the edges. It is quite a lot of work unless you are only going to do one or two. I made quite a few this way until my coasters arrived!

The coaster Post-It note holders were easier since they were already cut. This shows the inside. The 3×3″ Post-It notes work great.

The two above aren’t decorated with Lollies but are just as pretty.

It is so much fun trying different patterns of paper. Also, decorating the tops with different embelishments.

3 lollies



This is a good way to use up some of that retired DSP you have. I used the Stampin’ Up! Rosette bigz XL die to make my Lollies but you can also get the same affect with the score board. Just score every 1/4″. I used 2 strips about 11 1/2″ long and 2″ wide to make 1 Lolly for my Post-It note covers.

So are you ready to see what the next person on the blog hop has in store for you? Just click the “Next” button below. There is also a list of participants and you can go directly to their blog by clicking on their name.  Thanks for stopping by! Please come back tomorrow. I have more fun stuff planned for you!
