Multi fold card using Stampin Up's Thinlits Card Dies...

Hello again.. 
Well am I doing good or what!! I have now moved on to my third post!! (wink)!

Today I have the first project I created for my clubs this year. Here I used the new Thinlits Card Dies, I love um!! 
They come with so many fun dies to create lots of cute little titles, arrows etc. I used several different products and stamps to create this project, the paper is the new Retro Fresh DSP, other dies are the On Film set, the stamps used are the Peachy Keen, Hip Notes, Make Note Rotary Stamp, and Big Wish. To finish it off I created a wrap using the new Scalloped Tag Punch and tied it off with some Twine because this baby was a fat one!! 
I really love the colors in the retro fresh paper pack its all so refreshing. 
I also used the new Banner Punch that's available for free as a sale-a-bration item until Mar. 31st. 
This card was intended for a Valentines Day card but it would make a great friend, or birthday card too!

Here's a shot of one of my Club Girlie's.. "Lucia" with her finished card! 
Isn't it cool I really love how creative you can get with these Thinlits dies I just added a middle fold to two cards at both ends and Ta Da..., instant multi fold card!!


I hope you like it I really loved the finished project... it's really cute! OK Chica's that's it for now until my next post .. Have a great night... tu amiga Kat..

Personalized Stamps

Hello again,
 Kat here with just a really quick post about using my personalized stamp to mark my handmade cards! I love to add little details that make your artwork and your style shine through, here I added some cute glasses that are on the "this and that rotary stamp from SU" to my personalized stamp to coordinate it with this cute card I made using some glass frames.. 
I love how it all came together. I need to order a new one cuz I'm really lovin the new bracket personalized stamp in the large catty! It's on the wish list that's Oh so long!! (wink wink)! 
So if you haven't got yours yet don't wait email me today I can place that order for you! I truly love mine! 
Hope you all had a great Monday...

Hi it's me Kat! 
I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog and I have been really wanting to get back into the blogging world, so with that being said here is my first post for 2014!!

Last year was a  challenging year for me, I kinda lost my creative mojo and dropped out of the crafting scene.. which is really hard for even me to believe! Because crafting is my life ... There will always be some kind of crafting involved in my life at my casita, as it's what I breath and crave... Paper crafting is one of my favorite things to do.. I also love to sew and am wanting to get more involved in that this year too.
So last year I had thought I was going to quit my Stampin Up gig.. but It just made me sad I really do love the product and I love that I can do it at my own pace.. I have been a demonstrator since Nov, 2010 and I really do enjoy doing it. I will admit that having a full-time job as well can be quite a challenge but what keeps me going is the awesome group of friends that I have who have joined my clubs and have kept me involved in this business... I wanna thank all of them I am so grateful as I have my creative mojo back!! I currently have two clubs going and would love to have even a few more in the future! So if anyone would be interested in joining a fun crafting club I would love to coach it.., as I love being a CREATIVE COACH (wink)!
 I have had so much fun crafting with all my new Stampin Up products.. I really love all the new bundles in the Occasions Catty, the Peachy Keen and On Film bundle is one of my fav's I love the little camera die it's just so cute! Check it out it's a must have!! 

OK enough of all that, here is my cards for the day I used the new Fancy Foil vellum in gold for this first card! In the photo it really doesn't show the beauty of the metallic gold polka dots but I assure you that it is so pretty! I also used the banner punch that you can get for free with a 50.00 purchase until march 31st during the Sale-a-Bration promo! The background stamp is also SU but I don't remember the name of this stamp sorry! Only the items I mentioned are SU items! 

This next card is something that I have made for someones special Mom who means that world to them. How cute is that globe stamp (sigh)! It was an exclusive Valentines stamp that I just had to have and what a great way to use it as a Mother's Day card too! Also used the very large background map stamp and heat embossed it using SU's embossing powder in gold and cut out those cute hearts using the heart dies and the triple heart punch.
 Are you ready for your Mother's day? It will soon be here, I mean look at how fast this year is already going...., MARCH IS HERE!! yikes that was fast!

                       CAN I JUST SAY that it really feels good to make this post today, I will try to be more consistent with future post!!  Thanks for those of you who have stopped by to check out my art!
