Birthday Wishes!


Who doesn't need more masculine cards?!!!  And why do they seem to be the hardest for us to make?  I'm not sure of the answers, but here's a quick and easy card to help you out!!  Colors are Night of Nave and Crumb Cake.  I used the Classic Stars Jumbo wheel, along with the Seeing Stars Stamp Set! 

Have a Happy Halloween!! 


Divas Sketch Challenge #107

Happy Saturday!!  And, yes, believe it or not, I have actually gotten my project done for a challenge!! :-)  This is for the sketch challenge over at the UDI Blog!


I used the Season of Friendship stamp set, along with Marina Mist, Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso Classic Inks!  I love the way this turned out!  Although, I think if I made it again, I might add some glitter to the flowers and snowflakes--what do you think?

Hope you have a great weekend!!  Be sure to check out Tiffany's blog next!!!


Stamp Club Projects!

Just a quick post this morning!!  Here are two of our projects from the October Stamp Club meeting!


This is the Matchbox Die--I just added a band to go around!  It just slides off!

Here it is open:


And, here is a fun teabag holder:


You can slip a tea bag into the side "pocket":


Hope you all have a GREAT day!


Holiday Cards Stamp Camp - a couple more!

Good morning!  I'm sorry I haven't been posting this month!  It's been a crazy month, and I just haven't made the time to post!  I'll try to be better for the rest of the year! :-)

Here are two more cards we did at our big stamp camp last weekend:


This card was made with the Serene Snowflakes and Perfect Punches stamp sets.  Colors are Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White.  I love the simplicity of it!  It was designed by Jenni!


I just loved the colors on this one--Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Whisper White!  Stamp sets used were Northern Hearts and Gifted!  This was designed by Leilani!

Enjoy!  Don't forget to check out my upcoming classes!!  You can see a list HERE.

Look at this beautiful apron!!!  Leilani, one of the demonstrators that worked at stamp camp, made these for all of us to wear!  We looked so sharp in our matching aprons!!


She purchased the aprons online, then decorated them with our Deck the Halls Fabric!  The fabric was cut out using the new Tasteful Trim die, and the flower was made with the Flower Folds die!  She did a great job, don't you think?

Here area some up-close shots:



Have a GREAT day!



Holiday Cards Stamp Camp!!!

WOW!!  We had such a great time yesterday!!  I was soooo tired at the end of the day, but so happy!  The ladies (and one gentleman!!) seemed to enjoy all the cards! 

Here's one of the gift cards we made:

Stampcamp 008

It's made with one of our Notecards with Envelopes (#107311)!  You seal the envelope, then trim off one side. 

Stampcamp 009

For the inside, trim off 1 1/4" of one side of the notecard--that becomes your "pocket" for the gift card!

Supplies used:

Tags 'til Christmas (this set is included in one of the Holiday Bundles!!  See HERE!) & Curly Cute Stamp Sets

Cardstock:  Real Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper

Ink:  Basic Black & Baja Breeze

Busy, Busy, Busy!!

I'm sorry I've been absent from the blog lately!  I'm busy preparing for our big stamp camp on Saturday!  There's so much to do!!  But, I love these events--always alot of fun for everyone!

Here's a project I did a month or so ago.  It was meant as a doorprize for a Premier Jewelry Hostess Appreciation Brunch.  I couldn't find a nice basket for it, so I did another using zebra stripes and such!


There's a jr. legal pad, tin of nuggest, box of cards, bookmark, and a covered scratch pad.  They all use the Watercolor Trio stamp set that was in the Summer Mini Catalog.  (not available anymore, sorry!!).  I used Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and a little bit of Concord Crush!  I really like the way it all coordinates!  Here's a picture of the one I actually gave Michele--but it doesn't use alot of Stampin' Up's stuff--we don't have any zebra stripes!!


Sorry--it's hard to see, but I forgot to take pictures before I wrapped it up!

Have a GREAT day!
