Tic Tac Toe #2

Do you need another inspiration? I have another Tic Tac Toe board game created that you can play along with.

Make sure to use the #pgttt on all of your social media’s so that I can keep up with it and check it out.



Next week will be hectic for me because I am starting a new role and will be traveling. I hope to have at least 1 example using this Tic Tac Toe board but I would love to see examples from  you too!

Have a great Thursday!


Paper Gear’s Tic Tac Toe 001

Do you ever have creative block? When you sit down and you are ready to stamp with all the amazing stamps from the new catalog and you just get overwhelmed? I totally know the feeling and that is why I have been brainstorming on how to over come that. So this is my solution: Each week I am going to post a Tic Tac Toe game that you can participate in.
All you have to do is pick 3 items either across, diagonally, up, or down.

Make sure that you use the hastags #pgttt0001 and #papergears so that I can see all of your creations and comment on them on social media. I will be following Facebook and Instagram.


The other great thing about July is that for every $50 that you spend you will receive a $5 credit that you can use in August. This is a great time to get all those items that you have been wanting and now you can also get rewarded for it too!

bonus days

Also now is a beautiful time to become a demonstrator. On top of the $125 worth of products that you can choose from for only $99.. which is already a great deal. You can also get $72 worth of free products including an pre-leased Christmas stamp set. You will also be the first to see the new Holiday catalog coming out and of course getting to join my fun team. Do you need more details?? Make sure to email me and I would be happy to share.

Have a great 4th of July,

One planner that I am using is my inkWell Press planner (where if you follow my referral link you can get $10 off) and then I am using a Me and My Big Ideas planner to just memory keep. I also used some of our stamps and washi tape to create these layouts. It truly shows how great our products match with other products on the market. I loved how well they coordinated with stickers that I had.

Flowers and Ducks

I had a great time creating and crafting this past weekend at my workshop. One of the ladies created this beautiful card and I wanted to share it with you. I love watching other people create using our products. It is the simple joys that Stampin’ Up! products ability to coordinate with everything that makes it so easy to create masterpieces.

One of the things that I thought was really brilliant is how she took Rhinestones to give some of the flowers something extra special.

Global Design Project 068

This post and card was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch 068 which is below

Also if you would like to check out all the other cards created from this challenge you can visit their website: http://www.global-design-project.com/



I really loved the colors of this card and the balloons but I have done so many things lately with balloons and thought maybe I should try and make up a couple of Valentines cards. So the card below is what I came up with.



The inspiration that I took was the pink and blue color scheme and the balloons rising up on the card. I am also really loving the shaker cards at the moment and realized that using the gold glitter gives my card a nice pop. Also the glitter is contained which is an added bonus. You can actually pull out the little love not too!

If you are wanting to purchase any of these products please make sure to click on the item below and it will take you to my online store where you can securely purchase all your products. Make sure to use this month’s hostess code for all orders under $150 and you will receive some card inspiration from me.

Have a great day!

Plan with Me Jan 2 2017

Hello and welcome to 2017!! I am so excited for this year and for you to be joining me today! I hope that you had a wonderful Holiday season and that you had a great start to 2017. I spent the last couple of weeks prepping and working out what I wanted to get out of 2017. I also decided to come up with a word to embody what I wanted it to look like and the word that I chose was BOLD.

I am going to be changing up a couple of things in 2017 too! I hope that you will follow me through this amazing journey and I would love to hear from you too. Also make sure to check out my event section and I would like to bring your attention to Jan 12 for my first ever Coffee and Cards, This will be a great event where you can create 4 cards, enjoy some fellowships, and let out your creative sides. The cost of this event is $10 and will be held at my home in Elkridge, MD. If you are not in the MD area but would like to participate you can get the card class TO GO for $15 which would cover the shipping cost. Make sure to RSVP for this event because I will send you the address and space is limited.

I also did a Plan with Me video on how I am planning out the year, each week and sneak peaks in what is going on with Paper Gears this week. The first video is below and make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so that you can always be in the know when something gets posted


Lastly I am putting together a special Sale-A-Bration (SAB) hostess club for January, February, and March where you can receive additional benefits of SAB. The commitment is at least $50 each month of products purchased through me and using that month’s hostess code. During your month as the hostess we can host an additional in person party or Facebook party to ensure that you maximize all the hostess benefits. Because each person (max of 3 including yourself) will be placing a $50 order you will get at least $15 in hostess rewards plus whatever else your party raises. Also during SAB you receive a free item with every $50 that you spend (Win – Win- Win).

Happy 2017!!

Happy Holidays – Winter Break

Hello All!

Well Christmas is here and so is my favorite day of the year.. the winter solstice, if you want to know why it is because it means that it will finally be staying lighter longer!!! Challenges of moving to the mid-atlantic is how dark it gets and how early it is dark.

There are a few things that I wanted to bring your attention to:

Post will be minimal until probably New Year. I am taking some time to re-group, enjoy my family, and prep for 2017!! I think it is really important to take a break from everything and this will be the first time all year that we are not heading somewhere for a wedding, or trying to make an appointment, or whatever else and I can just enjoy spending time with family and friends.

I have my new class scheduled under Events at the top of the page and I hope that if you are in the Baltimore area that you will join me for a couple of these events. Their are a variety of events, days, and prices so I am sure that you can find something that will fit your budget and schedule!

Retreats are being added too!! I am super excited to have you join me for a fun Saturday filled with stamps, projects, food, fun, oh and prizes!!! Who doesn’t love prizes! Make sure to mark your calendars and pre-pay for Feb 11 and May 13! Cost of these fun retreat is $75 and it will be well worth it!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I am excited for 2017 and have so many things in store for you. Make sure to subscribe to my blog so that you never miss anything!
