I loved the instruction sheet that came with the 3D Magnolia Embossing Folder so I tried to case it. As usual my first attempt was like trying to reinvent the wheel. I rarely see the simplest way to do things... Continue reading

I'm trying to get as much use out of the Snow Globe Scenes Dies in case they don't carry over into the new year. I used the snow globe base dies to make the stand for the elephant. He's from... Continue reading

This was the card I made for the Canadaian Business Builders Holiday Catalogue Card Swap. It was a remake of a card I made forever ago using the Frosty Stamp. If I find the card I'll post a link but... Continue reading

I was part of a Holiday Catalogue Card Swap hosted by Kristen Handcock. So much fun! The cards were beautiful, all so different and they were individually mailed. They arrived a few at a time so it was exciting to... Continue reading

I couldn't throw away the scrap I had left from yesterday's card so I used it as the insert for the snow globe. Instead of using the Snow Globe Shaker Dome for this card I cut a globe from a... Continue reading

The Feels Like Frost DSP is so beautiful in real life it's hard not to hoard it. To get past my fear of cutting into it I cased this card from the Stampin' Up 2019 Holiday Catalogue. Tomorrow I'll post... Continue reading

Free as a Bird. That's the name of the stamp set I used to make this bird cage card. I didn't catch the irony of that until now lol. After cutting out several Snow Globe bases I couldn't help but... Continue reading

Does anyone remember these scalloped cards? They came with 6 x 6 Chocolate Chip envelopes. I clearly don't know the meaning of the word purge but at least I'm using (and slowly parting with) some of the old supplies I've... Continue reading

I'm becoming a big fan of two step stamping. The clear photopolymer stamps are so easy to line up making them perfect for OCD stampers like myself. It still looks fine when the stamps are a little off but give... Continue reading

This is currently my favorite bundle from the 2019/20 Stampin' Up Annual Catalogue. 3 layer stamps plus framelits makes for endless options. This is an easy card we'll be making at our next card buffet. I'm anxious to experiment with... Continue reading

Although I'm excited to get my hands on the new products coming soon, I was so glad to see Vibrant Vases and the coordinating punch made it into the next catty. It's been a busy winter and I haven't had... Continue reading

Every spring I get the urge to clean and purge my house. I have no problem donating clothes, dishes and anything else I no longer use or don't have a place for. So why it always so hard to part... Continue reading

I'm in love with Stampin' Up's Butterfly Beauty Thinlets. I don't usually care for the fussy dies but I've seen so many pretty cards using these butterflies I couldn't resist. The top layer is Basic Black card stock and the... Continue reading

This Beautiful Day stamp set is one of my favorites for colouring. I'm so glad it made it into the new catalogue. I used a combination of Watercolor Pencils and Stampin' Write Markers and then blended the colours with a... Continue reading

Apparently it's not only demonstrators who can't wait to tear into the Stampin' Up box when their preorder arrives. Mine was delivered today while I was at work and our German Shepard puppy couldn't wait to open it. I have... Continue reading

It's one of my favorite times of the year; new catty season. I'm trying to squeeze in some last minute cards with my favorite retiring sets. Rose wonder will be one of the sets I miss the most Continue reading

Funny how you can't throw out one little thing so it grows into a big thing. I needed the negative cut out of the branch for another card but couldn't bring myself to throw out a perfectly good die cut... Continue reading

I didn't realize I didn't have any sympathy stamp sets until I need one (good excuse to buy more stamps, right?). The elegant font used for the sympathy stamp in Teeny Tiny Wishes went well with the Delightful Daisy Suite.... Continue reading

I'm going to miss the Balloon Adventures stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It includes a couple of large sentiment stamps which I've used often. I thought I'd squeeze out a few more cards before it retires. The boots are... Continue reading

I'm so glad the Country Livin' stamp set carried over into the next catalogue. I've been using it a lot. This was one of the swap cards I made for OnStage in Toronto and I wished I'd made more. I... Continue reading
