Spring might be here soon

But not just yet. We have had some really warm days in the past two weeks, but today is chilly, chilly. I can’t complain much though, we don’t have snow! How is the weather in your area?

My Card Club met this past Tuesday and we made Easter treats, pocket gift holders and a spring card. This card was fun to make, especially because of the different fold. But OH, MY…..I should have thought about all those butterflies. They are double layered so each card uses 10 butterflies. I love how the double layering makes them look so flirty. This is made using Creative Elements and Papillon Potpourri – two of my favorite sets.

I hope you enjoy this touch of spring. Thanks for stopping by today.


Friendships and Connections

I had a lovely day today with a small group of stampers. Sometimes I need these days to remind me why I started this journey….friendships and connections. I like/enjoy the large classes where everyone is involved, creating (and shopping) but I REALLY love smaller groups. We get to talk, share, talk, share … you get the picture. It is all about connections and friendships. The ladies made a Delightful Dozen set of cards and I even had the opportunity to make 5-6 cards. What a treat!

Here is a card I made a few weeks ago to “Celebrate” those special days. This could be Birthday, Retirement, or Just Because.

I was not sold on the Sentimental Journey SAB stamp set until I saw all the wonderful cards in Pinterest. Now it is one of my new fav’s. LOVE it! It is so versatile.

Have you heard??? Photopolymer by Stampin’ Up!

This totally caught me by surprise. I must admit, I have tried some clear stamps from other companies. I like some, I disliked some. My SU order arrives Friday so I will let you know how I feel about the SU clear stamps. My guess is that I will like them for some applications, but probably not all of my stamping needs.

The Designer Typeset Stamp Set is in the online store starting now. Click to here to order yours today!

How do you feel about clear stamps? Any thoughts?

Just For You

Hello Friends,

Life has been busy since we returned from Paris yet it seems like we just left the beautiful city of lights. Since mid-December we have been to Denver, Orlando, Thomasville, and Savannah!
I have managed to get in a lot of stamping, just no blogging.
I created this card using some paper from the Spring Catalog, Print Poetry DSP. This paper pack makes it soooooo easy to design a card. I am trying to use stamps that have not seen ink in a while…do you have any unloved stamp sets? I have a few 🙂

This is Just for You – to remind you to use some of those old favorites in a new way. Stamp set: Established Elegance.

A bright red box will be delivered to your door each month.  You’ll love what you find on the inside: All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Stuff like cards, 3-D items, and more! Each project is easy and can be completed in a short amount of time. A creative kit that is just right for a busy mom, working woman or creative man. Of course, you can add your own touch to the projects and step them up a little or a lot.

The very first Paper Pumpkin will arrive on your doorstep starting in March-if you sign up before March 10.

Of course, you’ll want to know more. So here’s the nitty gritty:

  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We’ve even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month’s kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let’s say you sign up on May 10th, we’ll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we’ll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!) There’s no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at any time. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we’ll offer a Try-It kit if you’d like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
Here’s How You Order
