Thanks for Caring

On Tuesday, I held a class where participants each received this stamp set and then made four cards using the set. Each card shows the versatility of the set.

Until next time, happy stamping!

Love Impressions Designer Purse

I purchased the 12 days of Christmas instructions from Becky Roberts. It is full of neat stuff to make...and not just for Christmas!

This purse and notecard set is one of the items in the instructions. I used the Love Impressions designer paper and the glitter paper from the Occasions mini. It turned out pretty cool!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are all having a love-filled day! My hubby had to go on a business trip this week so we celebrated yesterday (although we do stuff for each other all year...not just on one day!).

Hubby even made me a card! All on his own! Lookie:

He used so many punches and the Big Shot! I asked my daughter if she helped him and she said no. I asked him how he knew how to use everything and he said he just looked at what I had and then tried them out. He did admit that he had seen me use the Big Shot before and just remembered how I used it. Will wonders never cease!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Love Day Class

I held a class yesterday called 'Get ready for the Love Day'. The ladies made four items, one a card, to give to their loved one on Valentine's Day, or any day they wish!

 This is a box in a bag...and yes there are gummie hearts and bears inside!
 This is a cellophane candy holder, inspired by Andrea Walford. I love the Valentine candy matches the paper so perfectly!
 This is a Ghiradelli chocolate box. We were only able to fit three inside, but I think it is because they are filled with yummy caramel!

This is the card we made. There is a piece of vellum paper over the top, which is what we stamped the sentiment on.
 This is what I gave everyone that came. It is made with the petal cone die cut and it is filled with homemade chocolates (thanks to my daughter), candy corn and a kit kat.

Until next time, happy stamping!

New Blog Header

How do you like my new blog header? My friend, Julie LeBlanc helped me create it in MDS and then helped me figure out how to get it on my blog.

Thanks, Julie! I love it!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Male Card Class

 My customers always find it hard to create male cards. So do I! So I had a class that focused on male cards. The above two cards are the exact same design, just a different image...just in case my customers did not have any rocker males to give it too! As it turned out, everyone made one of each!

This card is a shirt-tie card. I used a large brad for the 'clip'

This card was inspired by Jackie Topa. She used the bird punch for the fire. Isn't that cool?

Until next time, happy stamping!
