RSVPs need to be in today for the Tuesday class – 1 pm and 7pm! I’m trying to catch up after being away again.  I took the Simply Sent kits (on special this month) with me on the trip.  It was fun to have all the cutting done – I just had to stamp and assemble these […]

I’ve been dying to try out some more of my goodies from the holiday minicatalog.  Here I use the Gift Givers stamp set, the Shaker Frames, the Mica Flakes and the Snow Burst Embossing Folder.  Doesn’t this look great with the Pool Party Cardstock and Ribbon?

Have you noticed the new card keeper (minicatalog p. 35).  I put mine together last week and it was a snap.  It comes with templates to cover the box with fabric or designer paper.  I just covered the box lid using our fabric.  I added a fabric yoyo with button on top of some Big […]
