On July 5th I mentioned that I would show you all the JULY WORKSHOP CARDS the next day (July 6th)! But my new computer with Windows 10, along with the brand new Publisher program, is challenging my intellect!! So this is the best I can do for now. I posted this from my MAC. That's another story! [big sigh]..... Enlarge the photo above and turn your head 90 degrees to the left side to see the 15 workshop cards more clearly! THERE WILL BE LOTS OF FUN SURPRISES AT THE JULY WORKSHOPS... (But you won't have to tilt your head... Continue reading

When our granddaughters come for a visit, it doesn't take long before they are in my stamp room. They were all born with some of my creative genes. Those genes bypassed my daughter, their mother! These two cards were made by the oldest. Designs of HARRY POTTER and FLASH . . . Continue reading

JULY FOURTH in the U.S.A., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, baseball games, family reunions, and more. Our family always gets together for this holiday. We start with breakfast, and stay until the last firework is shot off near midnight! Our family circle is broken this year because one of our grandsons is in the military, serving in Afghanistan. Freedom is not free. Thank you, James. Linda Aarhus, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Vancouver, WA SaveSave Continue reading

This new card was also prepared on my HP, emailed to my MAC, and posted on my Typepad account. However, that's about all I could do! Seriously, my HP is really crashing!! This card (like yesterday's) was made with the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set #139167 Wood Mount / #139471 Clear-Mount and the lawn chair is from the FABULOUS NEW THINLITS SET: Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751 The button is handmade to match the chair... HERE'S HOW TO MAKE THE MATCHING BUTTON: 1) Punch two little holes with the 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch #134363 using the same Designer Series Paper, Wood Textures... Continue reading

I have six new cards to show you, but my computer is on the verge of a complete crash! In order to post this one, I had to prepare the parts and pieces on my HP and email all the pictures below to my MAC. Yep! Computer stuff is complicated for me, but my son-in-law (Barry) is a computer whiz and said he would help me find a new HP even though he can't believe that I'm not using my MAC exclusively! [big sigh]... I'm old and set in my ways, and like using Publisher for graphics (which MAC does... Continue reading
