I love the Memories & More Card Packs by Stampin’ Up!  Not only are the cards and sticker sheets great for scrapbooking, but they make delicious cards too.   And they usually coordinate with a Stampin’ Up! product suite which means endless opportunity for coordinated creativity! And a yummy color combo: Perfect for the Memories & […]

The Clearance Rack was updated this week at my store.  Something for all seasons, but especially Fall and Winter if you like to work ahead.  Here is just one screenshot of a few of the items. Fishing is big in my area and I believe the season started recently.  The Best Catch stamp set and […]

The Needlepoint Nook product suite is retiring soon:(  I really enjoyed the DistINKtive stamps and the stitching dies from this bundle. Look at how real the DistINKtive stamp looks!   Here’s a tip for using these photorealistic stamps:  Take an acrylic block and slide across a small section of the ink pad, pushing the ink […]

Floating Frame is the hot stamping technique at the moment, so I had to give it a try. I must say, I love it.  How cool to see the images floating in a framed shape.  And you get a twofer – the inside part makes another card! There are some frustrations involved with the technique, […]

At our recent craft weekend, we had fun copying ideas from each other.  The Best Catch cards and Easter basket below were CASED from my team members Brenda and Pam.
