Spring/Summer OPEN HOUSE!

Well, I had my new catalog open house today! It went great! It was nice to meet Paula for the first time and see Liz again!! and as always Correen and Tracy were there (as well as my crafty niece, Kait)!!

We all went thru the catty...many times...writing many wish list...narrowing down...adding more!!

I had 2 make and takes available!! They were simple but super cute and Springy!! Which was nice on this cold, windy day!! BRRRR...

The first is a cute card! I used Apricot Appeal as a base and added some Delicate Dots DSP (available for FREE...in the SAB brochure...see here for details!) I also used Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock.

The latte stamp in the Pun Fun stamp set was perfect for our "Warm up" party!!

Just a little ribbon and markers and woo-lah!! It is done!!

The second make and take is kinda a card! It is a gift card/money holder!! Perfect to sneak some special handmade coupons in too!!

I found this super cute idea here...Envelope Card

As was pointed out to me, I once again used the Top Note Sizzix die (Stampin' Up! exclusive!! ask me how you can get one!!) again.

So I have used it for EVERY open house, workshop and get together I have had...SO WHAT!! LOL

Funny thing is...every time I have used it is has been different (cut into a card, bag topper...ect!)

The pink card holder is just a lunch bag!! How simple!!

I am not sure what color I the purple is but will check when I head downstairs!!

Well, gotta clean up after a fun morning!!

If you didn't make it to my open house for any reason...that is OK!! You still have time to order with me...I will be placing an order on Monday afternoon!!! Call or email me to get 10% shipping!!

Dry Embossing...LOVE


I pulled out my brass Floral Frenzy template and got right to work!!

I am loving visiting my friend, Sandy's blog (the paper transformer) and seeing all her one layer cards! I thought I would try one too!!

OK so i had to add ribbon and then it needed a flower...I didn't get an A on it but ain't it cute!!

I will do one eventually!!

Hip-Hippo-Ray!


Just taking advantage of some quiet time...finally!

Here is a baby card I made for my husband's cousin's baby due in May! I know...it is a ways' but better prepared right!!

I used Bashful Blue, Vertainly Celery and Whisper White cardstock, CC ribbon and my Pun Fun Stamp set! The pattern papers are from Imaginisce (Baby Powder, Fuzzy Jammies paper)

How cute is it!!

I have no BABY BUG so don't even ask!! LOL even tho I have 6 friends all pregnant right now! YIKES!!

Well, off to stamp some more!!

Family Dry Erase!

We really used our Mr. Twigster dry erase board I made over the holidays and Tom asked that I do another. It was so easy to jot down something for the others, grocery list or whatever!!

I broke out my All in the Family stamp set and whipped this up! Just need to let it dry over night and add a light layer of Crystal Effects and dry and it will be ready to use!!

Thanks!!

Am I addicted or do I have a future stamper??



OMG!! I am sitting here trying to get some stuff together for the Techniques class Thursday and I can't hear my 15 month old son...must mean trouble right??

I see him sitting over by the door with my Stampin' Scrub and personalized stamp and he is cleaning it for me!!

SO...Do I stamp WAY too much and he is picking it up OR Do I possibly have a future stamper here!!??

Enjoy the pics and video!!


An Oldie but Goodie!!

I am working on cleaning and organizing my stamp room today so going to post a project I made previously but still love!!

Here is one of the dry erase boards I made for Chris' teacher for Christmas this year. SUPER easy and SUPER functional. In fact, I made a Christmas one for us and packed it away so need another since my husband and I both miss it for those quick to do's and notes!

I got a glossy tile from Lowe's and CAREFULLY stamped my image in Staz On. I let it dry a good 3 hours and colored in with Sharpie markers and let dry OVERNIGHT. The next day I used Crystal Effects ONLY ON THE STAMPED IMAGE. This allows you to use the rest of board as a dry erase board and wont' wipe off the stamped image!!

Thank you and ENJOY!!

Always VDay challenge


Hello all!!

I am part of a blogger group on SCS. Our first challenge was to create a Valentines Day card WITHOUT using red, pink or white. No problem! I am not a big VDay gal so wasn't too hard!

I made a tri-fold card base and used the slit punch to help keep the card closed. This card could be used for many occasions!!

I hope I pass! Thank you LaToya for a great first challenge!

Bitty Board Tech book!!

I have been asked how I am doing my Techniques book for my class. I plan to make all the pages fit inside the Bitty Board Book! Those class members that want to buy one to decorate to keep their techniques in will get 10% off each book and refills. Those that choose not to get the book will have a binder ring to keep all cards together!!

Now, lets just HOPE they don't put these on the retired accessory list tomorrow!!
