I’m not a fan of eating strawberries, peaches or pears (I’m a citrus girl), but I am absolutely in love with the Fresh Fruit set from Stampin’ Up!’s annual catalog.  I first saw the set in Utah when I was at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event and knew I wanted to do a summer class with it.  I decided… Read More »

Christmas in August

By | August 13, 2016

Every December I hear from those who took my Christmas card classes in the summer and they all say the same thing “I LOVE having my cards all done”.  I’ve also heard that a few of them address their envelopes at the same time they make their cards – talk about efficiency!  If you would like to be… Read More »
