Playing with New Products

By | April 27, 2016

While at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event last week, each participant was given the same new stamp set in their goody bag.  It’s called Marquee Messages and it’s fabulous!  This stamp set will work for many occasions and people, however, I think it’s THE  perfect set for tweens and teens.  Sometimes it’s just so hard to design cards for… Read More »

By | April 24, 2016

Next week my niece is going to make her First Holy Communion.  She is very special to me as we spend each Friday after school together and I have named them “Fiona Fridays”.  She also thinks I’m famous because she saw some of my cards for sale at a local store.  So, not to disappoint her and her… Read More »

Happy National Dandelion Day!

By | April 4, 2016

What?  There seems to be a National or International Day of just about anything and everything.  April 5 was chosen the day of dandelions and, it just so happens that I made a card for a friend last month that featured a dandelion.  I much prefer to celebrate them on paper than seeing them pop up in my… Read More »

Happy 3rd Birthday Paper Pumpkin!!!

By | March 10, 2016

I love how the box says “3 Years & Counting” because I look forward to my box each and every month.  Paper Pumpkin is the solution to many of our issues:  I don’t have enough time for a class, I don’t have a craft room, I’m not creative to think up my own ideas, etc, etc, etc. Paper… Read More »

Open House Samples

By | March 7, 2016

I had so much fun and was so busy chatting with everyone that I forgot to take pictures!  22 people came to my Open House and they each made 4 cards at the different stations I set up throughout my house.  Everyone had a different favorite, which means I did a pretty good job creating (and case-ing).  Lots… Read More »

Easter Lamb

By | February 20, 2016

I’m starting to think about which samples to make for my upcoming Open House on March 5 (you are all invited, just need to RSVP to me).  Since it’s only a few weeks before Easter, I immediately thought of using the Easter Lamb stamp from the 2016 Occasions catalog.  You may have noticed that the “Happy Easter” is… Read More »

Happy Valentine’s Day!

By | February 13, 2016

The card I’m sharing with you today was not made by me, but rather a very talented stamper who recently joined the Stampin’ Up! family.  I am besotted with this card that Ellen created.  The vibrant blend of the purples and reds, the pop of white under the flowers and the movement the watercoloring creates.  What a lovely… Read More »
