Sailing Home Sampler

About a year ago, as I was wrapping up my dissertation to complete my Ph.D., I was brainstorming gift ideas for my advisor. In addition to supporting me academically in so many ways throughout grad school, she and I traveled the world together presenting our STEM education research and working with teachers. In less than four years, we traveled together to Australia, Japan (several times), South Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Finland, and numerous cities within the U.S. What kind of gift do you give someone who has played such a significant role in your life? A hand-made gift, of course! 

Parisian Thank You

I was immediately drawn to the Parisian Blossoms suite of Stampin’ Up! products. The champagne foil elements on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous dies, a great color combination… what’s not to love! I tried to resist purchasing the set, but after five of my planned trips (Portland, San Francisco, Arizona, Vancouver, and Montreal) were cancelled due to COVID-19, I decided a little travel nostalgia was in order. This card design brought back so many great memories of traveling to Paris with my now-husband in 2010!

Birthday Bonanza Buckle Fold

Wedding Card Design

This is my February 2020 swap design, featuring the Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I love the images in this stamp set, and the fact that I earned it for free with a $50 purchase was the icing on the cake! (See what I did there?! Pun definitely intended!)
