There are just too many projects to choose from! I've trimmed my blog reading down to just three people, and your posts are the ones I go to first. The project that really got my attention initially was the Fifth Avenue Floral roses on shimmer cardstock and "watercolored" with reinkers. Honestly, you've inspired me so much with your amazing imagination and creativity! Thank you!


I loved the manhattan rose watercolor technique. I also loved the big shot technique where you made an oval window template with a wood or chipboard panel. Your MDS work was great, although I never did try them. You did really cute stuff with build a bear. Your garden and rose photos are inspirational. Thanks for being an important part of my stampin journey.


I like your projects and your blog. Enjoy the insights into your home and family life too. If I had to pick, I'd say you do amazing things with buttlerflies. Loved all the color combos you posted for the new set

Lynne Phelps

Gosh, how to choose? Folded fabric flower pins was a big favorite. Best tip? Dryer sheets with the butterfly dies, you really saved my sanity!


So many...but I absolutely can't do without Butterfly Basics!

Tina Olney

Its hard to pick a favorite, I like it all, but it would have to be when you showed how to cut the painted blooms dsp. Love that paper. Your blog is a favorite of mine and I always let people know about it when they need "ideas" or want to learn a new technique. Congrats!!

Shirley Adiaz

I think one of my favorites (too hard to choose just one) would be the Lotus Blossom Tutorial. It was so nice, I bought the set haha! Thank you for your sharing your time and creativity with us. More power and GOD Bless!! =)


Been following you for a few years and you offer up some amazing ideas and techniques Just recently you showed us how to use a dryer sheet with our thinlet dies. Love this idea, thanks.

Sue Speigner

Patty thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with us. I have followed you four or five years and there is no way that I could pick just one thing that you have taught me!! Again, thank you!!

Clem Scott

Congratulations on 20 years with StampinUp!!
I enjoy watching all your offerings but think the gift card holders were the best. I give a lot of gift cards thru out the year.

One of my favorite tutorials is the one showing how to use the intricate dies with dryer sheets so the paper releases easily.
Great idea and I have been using the idea ever since.
Congrats on your 20 years with Stampin' Up!
