Which are your favorite – dies or punches? Advantages of dies :  easier to store, more variety in size Advantages of punches:  faster to use, don’t need an expensive machine I love both and use both almost every day! Did you catch my review of the new Stampin’ Up! Cut & Emboss Machine? It only […]

Cute Fruit – Whimsical Simple Stamping

The #simplestamping challenge from Stampin’ Up! for August is to make cards with just stamps, ink and paper and add a bit of Designer Series Paper.  The theme is Spooky or Whimsical.  I immediately thought of the Cute Fruit stamp set and paired it with the new Plaid Tiding Paper to make a boxed set […]

Queen Anne’s Lace

The Queen Anne’s Lace is blooming alongside the roads in here in Northwestern PA.  I have fond memories of my mom filling a vase in late summer with the beautiful wildflowers for our dining table.  The Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set by Stampin’ Up! was a must have for me, for memories of summer and […]
