I have had the pleasure of getting to know the nicest people by sharing what I love! I am truly blessed!! 8th Anniversary -- Ideas and Symbols. Bronze and pottery are the... Continue reading

Have you had a chance to make one of these framed art pieces? They're easier than I realized! I made them for Pillow Gifts a few weeks ago, for those that attended my Crafty Chicks Day! Did you notice how glossy the chocolate and cherry look? I used my Fine Tip Glue and covered the Chocolate Glaze and Cherry with the Glue. It comes out so smooth and stays right where you want it! It dries clear and glossy and really makes the chocolate pop! To make the frame, I started with a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock 8 1/2"... Continue reading

It felt great to get back to stamping yesterday after taking almost 2 weeks off for the Thanksgiving Holiday! Don't get me wrong, I loved having my daughter and her boyfriend home from Israel for almost a whole week, and my Mother-In-Law visiting for 10 days (I have the best MIL!!), but I was eager to get back to my studio and stamp!! I pulled out the Fa-La-La-La Friends Stamp Set and this is what I came up with!! I love living in the Southwest and I hope everyone in class Friday likes it!! I still have a few spots...

Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator has been one of the best decisions I have EVER made!! I have been SO blessed to meet the most wonderful people through my business...both customers and other demonstrators!

This was a swap card I designed for my Michigan trip back in August! I realized that I never shared it here with all of you!! I love this card because it showcases SO many wonderful Stampin' Up! products and how well they coordinate together! I got the idea to turn the embossed Woodland background trees upside down from my sweet friend Candy, who is also one of my Happy Shoppers on my Chickstamper team...doesn't it give off an eerie feel?? So cute! You can't go wrong using the Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set...it is just so stinkin' cute! I... Continue reading
