Hi Stampers, Happy Friday friends ! I wanted to share with you that Sunday afternoon I got to add a ton of rhinestones to my vest and Oh My Goodness!!! It's so gorgeous ! so sparkly and yes a little time consuming BUT so worth every bit of the 3 1/2-4 hours to do my whole vest It's very easy but like I mentioned time consuming . I will be adding more once I order some of my own rhinestones and get all my patches added to my vest . I also filmed a video for you that I will post next week just in case you want to add some sparkle to something you have . Trust me I would be adding rhinestones to everything if it was up to me~ NO I'm not kidding . We had customer Appreciation day at our local Harley store and guess what?... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Today we will be making this card . I made this card in a group of (5) for my local stamp club hostess Carol this last Saturday. I started making this card using a white crayola crayon but found out that using the Chalk Marker # 132133 is also a great resist technique too. The 1st card I made ( shown above) I used the Crayon resist ...this card I used Helping me Grow stamp set... but then tried the chalk marker and it's even better since there is no crayon flakes ending up on my ink pad with the Chalk Marker . The cards I made for Carol I used the Garden in Bloom stamp set # 139433 which I am so happy both stamp sets are in the new catalog ~ YAHOO! You can purchase them both right now . All supplies I used in today's... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Monday friends ! Oh my goodness I finally got a few minutes to play with this month Paper Pumpkin and WOW the project this month is so AWESOME and Plus we got an a extra FREE stamp set included in this month's kit YAHOO! The stamps are so cute . I really love the project this month which is a cute wreath when I seen it I immediately thought I would need my hot glue gun but I was pleasantly surprised all the greenery already had adhesive on it so it was just a matter of peeling the backing off and wrapping it around the Styrofoam~ super easy peasy !! I think the longest part in making this months project was figuring out the ribbon and tying the bow which I just did my own thing in the end . I love making home decor items for... Continue reading

Coloring the fish from the Bear Hugs stamp set click HERE for that video Making the flower using the Bouquet Bigz die for the Frame Card click HERE for that video . That cute bear card I made for a swap contest at Onstage last week ... I ended up needing to make a 2nd one just like the one shown above for Janet . Janet & Susan judged the contest and they couldn't share the card so I mentioned to Janet I would make her the same card when I got home, so needless to say BOY am I glad I wrote down those measurements LOL! Yesterday I put my hubby to work and he cut the card stock for my M&T's for club this Saturday evening .. This was the 1st... Continue reading

Please check back here for the list at that time which will be the following times in other time zones Pacific time 12:00 pm Central time 2:00 pm Eastern time 3:00 pm Oh my goodness on a scale of 1-10 on cuteness I think this baby card is off the charts . Only because of the inside . I am giving credit to my amazing man for this clever idea he wanted me to try on the inside of today's card . He said why not add a banner to the inside so when it opens up it's right there ... of course I have to add BABY to the banner, with the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper #140550 too . I tried using the Banner punch # 133519 but that was a... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Tuesday friends ! This card has a few layers and not much stamping .... Well some stamping with the Hardwood stamp for the background and then the greetings on the front and inside But mostly cutting and layers is what this card focuses on . The pears I hand cut out from the Farmers Marker designer paper # 138448 The funny thing is I really tried to hand cut the stems out with the pears and well out of the 5 I cut out only 2 with stems survived LOL! Even without all the stems and leaves, I still love this card . Here is the inside decorated with the pears I used the Apple of my Eye stamp set # 140736 for both the front and inside greetings . I think I have found a small pattern in my creations when I actually sit down and... Continue reading
