Posted: Tuesday, July 31st, 2012 @ 10:49 am in Projects | No Comments »

Today is the last day to get the Reason to Smile Stamp Set.  Here are some cards that I made (one is a convention swap card by Tamara Z).  The daisy looks really sharp stamped in white ink on black cardstock.  You can purchase the stamp set for $5 with a $50 purchase at my […]

Convention 2012 Classes

Posted: Monday, July 30th, 2012 @ 9:46 am in Projects | No Comments »

I took two optional classes at Convention that were excellent.  The cost was $35 each, and they gave us far more than that in product, plus the projects and instructions.  For the “I am creative” class, 5 of the concept artists (what a dream job – paid to stamp all day) gave us their tips […]

I’m back from Convention 2012

I had a great time and learned so much.  Before I start sharing, a quick reminder about Stamp Class on Tuesday.  Details are in the last post.  I need one more card for class.  If I have time, I’ll pick a favorite swap.  Otherwise, this summery card that I designed was very popular.  It uses the […]

Here’s an easy pop up card I have been seeing on the web.  On the outside, I  put a simple panel of Patio Party Designer Paper.  The inside piece I just eyballed the cuts using my personal cutter.  The bottom two cuts are the same length, then the top 2 are each a bit shorter and […]

I have a guest artist today – my downline and friend Connie.  She showed me these beautiful cards, so I had to share them here.  She used the new stamp sets So Sorry and Flowering Flourishes.   The Adorning Accents Edgelits and Folders make these cards pop.  And don’t forget the new  Paper Piercing Pack.  I […]
