Exciting Changes are Happening!

Greetings friends! I'm super excited to share some news with you!

Let me begin with a bit of history...

When I started this blog I had every intention of being an active Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. In the past four years I have had some success with this, but have had some set backs as well. I have frequent migraines which really gets in the way of scheduling events! While on my stamping journey I have also learned that while I love Stampin' Up! and will continue as a hobby demonstrator, my main interest lies in the creative process of stamping.

I will continue to stamp and blog, no worries! I love to share the creative journey but in keeping with my new focus of selling my creations rather than selling product, I have established a new blog: http://shannonkaypaperie.com/.

My new blog is more in line with who I am today and the goals I have today. I am still going to be a part of the Pals Paper Arts design team and starting January 4th, 2015, will be a guest designer with The Paper Players as well!

I truly hope that you will hop on over to my new blog and subscribe to continue to receive my posts! I thank you so very much for your support over the past three years, I have learned and grown so much! I look forward to many more years of creativity and hope you will join me for the journey!

Here are a few samples of what I have been working on recently!



Thanks you for everything and remember to visit me at Shannon Kay Paperie!!

Wishing you joy and blessing!



Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

Welcome to another edition of the Pals Paper Arts Blog Challenge! Today we have a fabulous sketch from the very talented Margaret Moody:

Doesn't it look like fun??

I knew the minute I saw this sketch that I wanted to showcase the Stampin' Up! stamp set Ornamental Pine with it. It took just a few minutes to decide on papers and inks.

Country Christmas - Pals Paper Arts 232

To ink up the focal image stamp, I stamped the whole image in Garden Green, took a baby wipe and wiped off the ink from the stem and inked just the stem up very carefully in Early Expresso. The Christmas greeting is from the stamp set And Many More. It was inked up with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder and then heat set with the Heat Tool.

I just about have Christmas preparations wrapped up...how about you? I'm off to finish those last minute details, I hope you will pop on over to the Pals Paper Arts blog to see the inspiration from our other talented designers!

Can You Case It #48 - Pictogram Blossoms

Good Morning and welcome to a very interesting challenge today! Here is a fun and challenging color combination from the design team at Can You Case It:

This was definitely an interesting color combination for me! I'm sorry the pictures seem so dark, the camera seems to be picking up the darkness from the Blackberry Bliss. Here is a better shot of my lovely Coastal Cabana rhinestone jewels:

I love the simple vase full of blooms with their sparkling centers! For my twine, I unwound some Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine and some Natural Linen Thread and then wound them together for a bit of a rustic feel.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you pop on over to see the inspiration from the rest of the Can You Case It design team!

Merry Everything - PPA230

Welcome to another Pals Paper Arts Challenge! This week we have a fun color challenge for you:

This color combination said "Christmas" to me so that's the direction I went. One more Christmas card done...check!

I had a fun and busy weekend, celebrating the holiday and cyber-shopping and decorating the house. Fun! It's that busy time of year so I hope you are able to make some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
