Year in Review 2019

The end of the year kinda snuck up on me! I just barely got this in under the wire! Here are my favorite projects from each month here on the blog during 2019. Sometimes it was hard to pick... others, not so much!

Enjoy the little retrospective!

Butterfly gala punch bundle stamps Stampin Up butterflies tutorial class Lyssa fancy fold technique

My favorite project from January 2019 was definitely this pop-up butterfly punch art. I love rainbow colors and easy WOW's and they don't get much more colorful or eye-catching than that! This was a project from the Class of the Month files.

Happy Tails stampin up stamps dog collar bone pet sympathy dog house punch

In February 2019 I made this sweet doggie card with the Happy Tails stamp set. I had so much fun coming up with all the different dog breeds I could think of to color with the Stampin' Blends markers. I didn't get my birthday wish for a dog this year... but I did get two adorable guinea pigs (Dash and Mr. Darcy) which I spoil rotten with all the veggies their chubby little hearts desire.

Beauty Abounds stamp set Stampin Up spatter rubber color Butterfly Duet punch

In March 2019 I must have been longing for some color and warmth. I made this clean and simple Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana butterfly grid card. A nice bright POP of color in my cold craft room!

Daisy Lane stampin up fern rubber stamps layout ombre technique sketches Lyssa

This is hard to pick just one! I made a lot of cards in April 2019. But I did really like this pretty one made with the ferns from Daisy Lane. I got a new custom-cut counter for a desk, and full-length glass door in my craft room. So nice and bright in there now!

Everything is rosy card kit stampin up Lyssa quilts quilting cardmaking

May 2019 was tough and I didn't craft very much. Our house siding project drove me to distraction and out of the house quite a bit. But the quilt-inspired cards I managed to make with the Everything is Rosy medley turned out very cute.

Seahorse silhouette pigment sprinkles paper Stampin Up seaside notions ocean stamps

I just love everything about this Seaside Notions card I made in June 2019. The gorgeous background paper is from See a Silhouette. This was a swap at our team meeting here in Watertown.

Incolors Stampin up butterfly wishes dies new peacocks cardmaking sketches Lyssa

I was gone for a lot of July (on the Stampin' Up Greek Isles cruise!) but I really enjoyed working with the new In Colors when I got back. The 6x6 In Color patterned paper stack and the Butterfly Wishes stamp set and dies went well together in all of the new colors.

Farmhouse hardvest pitcher leaves autumn fall cardmaking Stampin Up Lyssa stamps

Amazing that anything else besides scrapbook layouts for Scrapbooking Summer School gets done during August--but I did make some cards, too, including this farmhouse-inspired one using the Country Home stamp set and the paper piecing technique.

Natures beauty Stampin Up rubber stamps DIY cardmaking fall winter Christmas deer woods  fox

It's hard to make clean and simple nature cards, but this one using Nested Labels from September 2019 fits the description, I think! Love that Nature's Beauty set and love that the proceeds went to mental health organizations in all of Stampin' Up's countries of business.

Merry Moose gold gray Birch background Stampin Up foil Christmas holiday Lyssa stamping

October 2019 was filled with the annual blog series I do with Penni, my crafty BFF. The rest of the time was spent working on Christmas cards like this Merry Moose punched card using the new Birch background stamp. I am so glad we will be seeing the Moose punch again next fall! I am not done playing with it yet.

Beautiful Friendship thank you card cardmaking Stampin Up roses rubber stamps handmade stationery

My personal favorite from November 2019 was this Beautiful Friendship card made as thank yous for my online club members. Super easy but the end result was gorgeous. Kinda springy for the frigid weather we were having between Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Dressed to Impress lipstick perfume makeup style rubber stamp Stampin Up Lyssa girl fabulous

For my last monthly favorite of the year, it's another clean and simple card (I just love those). This December 2019 one is from a sneak peek of a new set coming in January, called Dressed to Impress. It's just feminine and sassy and fun.

Thanks for joining me on a little walk down memory lane! I thank you for being a visitor and follower of Song of My Heart during 2019, and I hope you'll be back in the new year for more stampy inspiration. Happy New Year!
