It’s my anniversary

Posted: Wednesday, August 31st, 2011 @ 9:11 am in Projects | No Comments »

Today is my 13th anniversary with Stampin’ Up! (see my special in previous post).    It’s hard to remember back to the days when I met Rachel, Shannon and Tracy and their families at Grace Church in Millcreek PA.  What fun we had in our small group (and stamping of course).    I signed up after they all moved away, so […]

Letters to Santa

Posted: Tuesday, August 30th, 2011 @ 9:15 am in Projects | No Comments »

Yes, this is a Christmas Designer Paper!  But it has some beautiful plaids that can be used for any occasion.  Here I paired it with the Array of Sunshine Hostess set.   The sentiment is from the Lighthearted stamp set in the Holiday Mini (starts Sept 1).  I used marker and the ommitting technique to stamp just part of the greeting. […]

Where has the summer gone?  Here is a summery card using Flower Fest and the Beyond the Garden DSP – remember DSP is buy 3- get 1 free for just a couple more days.  Anyone who makes a $20 purchase on my website by Aug 31, I will send a grab bag card kit (value […]

Sweets for the Sweet

Remember, today is the Vendor Fair at Grace Church from 4:30-8:30.  Hope to see you there! My mom’s eye surgeon gave her this bag of candy (wouldn’t a bag of carrots been more appropriate?)  It was crying out for a hand stamped tag made with the Big Shot Tags die and the Sweets for the […]

Color Combo

And here’s the other card I made with this favorite color combo.  The flower stamp is a single a la carte stamp page 18.  You can use it with  3 SU punches to get different shapes/color!  The sentiment is from the Occasions Alphabet stamp set.   I have a big sales goal that should be fulfilled by […]

Here’s the next one with my favorite color combo of the week.  Stamp set is Best of Everything.

Class Day

Placing an order today if you need anything!  I didn’t get to post yesterday – too busy getting ready for my monthly class.  I discovered a color combo that I love – you will see it the next 3 days – Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade,  Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral.  I haven’t stamped on vellum […]

Pennant Punch

Today is the last day to RSVP for stamp class!  See previous posts for details and photos.    Here is a project using the 1″ circle and pennant punches.  I’ve seen this cute layout in several places.  It’s a great way to use up some scraps of designer paper.  I also used the new Sweets for […]

Class Card

Here’s the last project for next weeks class – please RSVP by Monday.  I used the Well Worn DSP which has a more masculine feel.  Combined with more neutral colors (River Rock, Early Expresso and Soft Suede) it looks great.  The stamp is from the hostess set Faith in Nature.  It’s now easier than ever […]

Class Project – Apron Card

Posted: Thursday, August 18th, 2011 @ 9:08 am in Projects | No Comments »

Here’s another project for class next week featuring the Domestic Goddess DSP.  THis paper is retro and whimsical – you might want to pick it for one of your Buy 3 get 1 free selections.  The left card I made years ago (recognize that stamp set?) as a seed packet holder.  For class, I wanted […]
