Wonder what the Stamp of the Month Kit is? If you have ever purchased stamps and accessories and then didn’t know what to do with them when you received them, I have the solution. You purchase the kit, and I will send you the products and three projects to do up immediately. The kit includes the stamp set and whatever else I choose in making the card kits. I don’t include adhesives, ink and stamped images (per Stampin' Up rules), and you can substitute what you have. These projects are fun and easy to do. I will send you a... Continue reading

Gone now, of course, but they have depictions of the statue The Stadium was where the games were held and could hold 45,000.... Continue reading

Tuesday, July 9th This was our Sons' birthdays, so we were a little sad not to be with them and helping them celebrate Our plan was to go on a shore excursion on Santorini Sam with our ship, The Jewel of the Seas" in the background We had to "tender" off the ship - take a small tender boat to the shore. The dock isn't big enough for the cruise ships to dock. In the pictures above, can you see the brick "road"? It's the walkway up to the top - there is also a tram. Instead, our shore excursion...

Here's another card using the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders I used the rectangle one on this card After embossing, I used a little Terracotta Tile ink and outlined the embossing! Subtle, but love the effect Notice the coordinating Terracotta Tile 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon - this ribbon is so easy to work with! The frame cuts out the center, so I added some of the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper behind Measurements Seaside Spray Card Base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Terracotta Tile 5 1/4" x 4" Woven Threads Designer Series Paper 3 1/2" x 2 1/4"...

I shared some cards at our club meetings in June made using the new Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders These are so stunning! Just in case you haven't noticed them in the catalog When you purchase this set, it comes with two dies that are the frames and two coordinating embossing folders. My advice is to cut out the Oval/Rectangle first and then emboss If you have problems lining up the die once it's cut, you can cut one and use a black marker to outline the die! I tried a little Washi Tape once I got it... Continue reading
