Stampin Up Haul & Mental Health Awareness Month

Stampin Up Haul & Mental Health Awareness Month is what we have for you today. If you missed my video and blog post last week be sure to check it out HERE. It’s about a personal journey and  I think you will want to see it. Both my son Christian and I suffer from depression.

Christian suffers from severe depression and has given me permission to share his story so please educate yourself during Mental Health Awareness Month and check it out.

Now let’s get started on the cool Stampin Up Haul I got from my friend Esther’s party! I love supporting fellow creatives and was happy to check out some cool new stuff from my Stampin Up Haul! Esther’s party is over but if there is anything you wish to purchase, please be sure to contact my friend and past Creative Crew Member Brandie. I know she will take VERY good care of you!

I really love the texture of this embossing folder. It could be seaweed, grass, close up of wood grain.. the possibilities are endless.. I really love it!


This embossing folder does really deep lines on the paper. Perfect for cutting and making flowers, great backgrounds or even die cut the embossing and create your own new look. Pretty cool Stampin Up Haul so far, right?

I can NOT wait to use this beauty on a creation with ink and paint. YES!! IT IS A SEQUIN EMBOSSING FOLDER! I am not sure which medium I should use it with first?!

This lovely wood grain embossing folder looks really detailed. I may emboss it twice with two different brown colors to see what effect that will give.

I always love to use punches. They are quick, easy and something I like to use with out sentiment stamp sets!

This was a little discontinued set that I purchased… Actually I purchased three of them figuring I would make use of the items for my sons scrapbooks and I can’t wait!
