Hello friends! I am sorry I haven't been posting. I have been working a part time job and I got a nasty virus. I am excited to have some time this weekend to work in my craft room but before I start I thought I would share with you a couple more projects I created using the Circle Die-Cutting subscription box from Crafter's Companion. This card measures 5 x 7". I used all the sizes of the stitched circles in the box and cut a bunch of colored cardstock and patterned paper in different sizes. I stamped the butterflies and heat embossed them using white embossing powder. This card measures 5x7", too. I embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder onto the yellow cardstock. I stamped the flower image onto watercolor paper and used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color the flower. I die cut the scalloped circle out of the yellow cardstock and put a piece of white cardstock in the negative space. I stamped the sentiment onto that white panel. I really have had fun with the Circles Die-Cutting Subscription box from Crafter's Companion. It's fun to sit down with supplies and make as many different samples! Well I am off to create something fun today. I will share it with you in a few days. Continue reading

Hello friends! I wanted to remind you about the Crafter's Companion HSN (Home Shopping Network) day tomorrow, March 5. Be sure to tune in for a look and check out all the great stuff! But I do have a couple more cards to share with you using the Crafter's Companion Subscription Box - Circle Die Cutting. It was fun creating cards using the supplies from the box. This card uses the largest square card blank (6x6"). I used the colors from the patterned paper for my card. After stamping the flower image onto the base panel and then stamped the flower image onto the watercolor paper. I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to color the image and then fussy cut it out. I die cut some circles and stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock. Everything but the white cardstock is included in the subscription box. Here is another card I created and I just love it! This card uses the smallest card blank (5 3/4 x 4 1/4") included in the box. There are two stamp sets included and you can create such different styles of cards. I really like that alot! I would love to know if you subscribe to a card kit or a subscription box and what is your favorite part of the kit! That way I can share with you the things I make with the kits I subscribe too!! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have another card to share with you using the Circle Die-Cutting Subscription Box from Crafter's Companion. After looking at the stamp sets included in the kit, I thought a Tent Topper Style card would look great with the dies included. I love to create a Tent Topper Card. If you aren't familiar with this type of card, you can see a more detailed tutorial on Splitcoaststampers HERE. Here is my card..... Here are a few of the supplies I used to create this card..... There are three sizes of card blanks with envelopes included in the kit. Plus there is two stamp sets. This is just one of the stamp sets included. The die set is scalloped and stitched circles. These die are so very versatile! Here is how I created this card. The first image shows the size of this card blank - 5 3/4 x 4 1/4". I cut the card blank so that it measures 4 1/4 x 4 ". I cut a piece of the pink patterned paper & white cardstock to layer on the base of this card. Then I die cut the largest scalloped circle from some of the pink paper (included in the kit) and die cut the stitched circle from some Spectrum Noir Premium Ultra Smooth White cardstock. I adhered the scalloped circle layer onto the base so that the top of the scalloped measures to 5 1/4". That way my card will fit into an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") envelope that I have in my stash. I stamped the flower and leaves images onto some of the Spectrum Noir Watercolor cardstock. This is the best cardstock to use for stamping and watercoloring. I decided to get the colors I really wanted, I would use my Spectrum Noir Aqua Tint Pen - Cosmos with a waterpen. So I stamped the flower images onto watercolor paper using Spectrum Noir Finesse Pebble Water-proof ink pad. After coloring the flowers and leaves, I let them dry and then fussy cut them out. Then I finished the card. Here is what the top looks like....... Here is the completed card again. I love how this card turned out. This is one of my favorite cards to make. It's so easy and looks so fancy!! Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to tune in to HSN (Home Shopping Network) On... Continue reading

Hello friends! Do you get a monthly card kit? I have gotten a few of them over the years. I really love getting kits because you get a variety of stuff that matches and gives you a chance to try some stuff that maybe I wouldn't have tried. Well I received a really cool subscription box from Crafter's Companion to make a few samples for the next crafty day on HSN (Home Shopping Network). It came in this cute box...... Here is what is included in the box...... There are alot of supplies in this one box. So far I have created 8 cards and there is still so much supplies left! I love that there are card blanks and envelopes included! You can sign up for this subscription box on HSN (Home Shopping Network) on March 5. This was a lot of fun to work with! Here is my first card....... Using the circle dies included in the kit (scalloped and stitched circles), I die cut some of the patterned paper and adhered the circles into place. I die cut two circles and just cut them to fit on the front panel of the card. I stamped the flower image onto some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock (not included) and colored the flowers with my new Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to the front panel using some 3d foam squares. I stamped the sentiment and added ribbon, pearls and such to complete the card. Here is my second card...... This one was pretty easy. I just die cut the scalloped circle from the patterned paper and then die cut the center of the circle to make it a frame. I stamped the sentiment and added the pearls, ribbon, more patterned paper. The patterned paper, colored cardstock, pearls, ribbon and card base all came in the kit. For most of the cards I have created so far, I have added some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock. I really have enjoyed working with this kit and have so many ideas to share! If you want to check out the subscription boxes that are still available on HSN, you can just click HERE to see what's left. Be sure to check out the Crafter's Companion crafty day on HSN.com on March 5 to see more cool stuff!! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you had a fantastic Valentine's Day! It was very nice here at our house. We had a break in the weather and we really enjoyed it. Since then the weather has not cooperated but we are hanging in there. I am so ready for Spring and to say goodbye to this snow and other nasty weather. I took some time to pull out some supplies that I haven't used as much as I should have and one of those supplies is the Spectrum Noir Aquablend Pencils in Vivid and Earth Tones. I stamped the peony images from the Crafter's Companion Perfect Peony and Floral Spray stamp & dies onto some watercolor paper and had a great time!! After stamping the images onto the watercolor paper, I used the pencils to add color. Then I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle marker to blend the colors and give the flowers and beautiful sheen. I added the "Mother" sentiment die cut (from the 2018 Christmas Advent Calendar) to complete the card. I love how it turned out and really love those pencils! The Perfect Peony Collection is available on HSN (Home Shopping Network) right now. It's a beautiful collection! I will have some more to share with you in a few days. It's almost time for another crafty day on HSN. Mark your calendar for March 5! The sneak peeks are just beginning so be sure to check back!! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you have been keeping warm and dry. Around here the temps have been at record lows on a Wednesday (-15 degrees) and then 68 degrees by the weekend. It's kinda crazy! I have been having some fun creating some Valentine's Day cards using the Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection. It was nice to create a bunch of cards just for fun. I haven't done that enough and I have decided that I am going to do it more often! Here are a couple of the cards! For both of these cards, I used the stamp set included in the Simon Says Stamp February Kit - Love Always. I used the papers and stickers from the Kissing Booth papers from Simple Stories plus the Stitched Rectangle & Stitched Oval dies from Crafter's Companion. Even the scalloped detail on the second card is a die from Crafter's Companion, too! I will put the stack of cards I created out on the counter for anyone in the house to use. That is my not-so-sneaky way to keep them out of my stamp room! LOL It works sometimes! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I have been busy organizing, purging and throwing things away in my craft room. It's a big job and will take me awhile to get it all done. But I took sometime to try to create a card with a "love" theme. I kept things pretty simple but feel like this card turned out pretty good! The supplies I used for this card are all from Crafter's Companion. I used the Contemporary Lace 3D embossing folder for the white panel. The patterned paper is from the Peony Collection 12 x 12 paper pad. I used the Love Expressions die for the sentiment that I die cut from white glitter luxury cardstock. I added some mini brads and a twine bow. These supplies were recently on the HSN (Home Shopping Network) crafty day so they aren't available on the Crafter's Companion website yet. They will be soon but you can check out HSN HERE for these supplies if you are interested. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I haven't really posted about my design team commitments lately but thought I would give an update. Right now, I am designing for Crafter's Companion. To be honest, I am not sure how much longer they will want me just because I have been going thru a creative dry spell lately. It's been like pulling teeth to design anything and what I have designed is definitely not my best work. That being said, I am trying to kick up my creative mojo by organizing and purging my craft room. It's been a long time since I have cleaned, organized and purged. I have been so lucky to receive such wonderful products from different companies but an occasional purge can be helpful. So in the next week or so, I hope to post some Destash videos with things to sell. I have piles of Tonic Studios dies, Heartfelt Creations dies & stamps and other goodies that I will be selling. Hopefully getting control of my crafting stash and not feeling so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff will help me get back to being more creative! Wish me luck!! I do have a couple of cards to share with you that I created using Crafter's Companions newest release that was on HSN (Home Shopping Network) January 8. These cards were created using Quirky Sentiments - Gin! LOL If you have a friends who loves to drink Gin & Tonic then this stamp set is just for you! There are other Quirky Sentiment sets that include Prosecco and some just plain Quirky sentiments. I had fun creating these thinking of a couple of friends I have that would get a kick out of these two cards. If you want to check out the Quirky Sentiments that Crafter's Companion featured on HSN (Home Shopping Network) you can see them HERE. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I really appreciate all of you checking out my blog and projects. Please check back or subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the Destash videos that I will be posting soon. Continue reading

Hello friends! Have you been busy creating a bunch of projects for this new year? To be totally honest, I haven't created anything yet this year! My creative mojo seems to have taken a vacation and I haven't really been feeling like creating. Have you had times like that? I am going to try to plow thru that and get back to creating. I know one of the things that might help me is to purge this craft room. So while I am purging and cleaning/organizing, I thought I would share a couple of projects I created back in December for Crafter's Companion. Here is my first project using one of the new Edge'able dies from Crafter's Companion. This die actually comes with 2 stamps to go along with the die. This die is to be used along the edge of the cardstock or will create an edge on your project. The concept is really cool and there are lots of ways to use these! Here is another Edge'able die used in a different way.... I die cut the birthday portion twice. Once along the edge of the kraft cardstock and another time from the rose gold glitter cardstock. I adhered the glitter word over the top of the kraft cardstock. This definitely looks better in real life. The colors of the card pop more in person. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hoping to share more with you in a few days! Continue reading

This is a retired Stampin’ Up! Set called Heavenly Peace. You might be able to find it on eBay...

Hello friends! Did you have a good time shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I know I sure did! I had a set budget I could spend on some crafty sales and I blew it after just visiting two websites! LOL I bought some super cute stamps and dies from Neat & Tangled and then I bought a bunch of cardstock from Stampin' Up!. It doesn't seem to matter who I work with or who I puchase stamps from, I always end up back with Stampin' Up purchasing the cardstock. It's just the right heaviness and the colors are always just right! Speaking of Stampin' Up....do you have a favorite stamp set that is retired? Well I used my most favorite set to create some Christmas cards for my family to send out this season. I embossed the Holy Family image using gold detail embossing powder and backed that with gold mirror cardstock. I added an embossed panel of snowflakes and more mirror cardstock plus the ribbon and sentiment to complete the card. I think these are so simple and elegant. But most of all the reminder that Christmas is all about Our Savior's birth is the best part of this card! Remember I have a group of Facebook that I am selling my cards from. So if you would like to be a member of my group, just let me know in the comments. Thanks for stopping by today. I can't wait to share with you some of the fun supplies I bought on black friday. You will love them! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our holiday was really wonderful. The week before Thanksgiving, our family met up at a condo in Branson, MO and enjoyed some time together at Silver Dollar City. It was wonderful and a great way to start off the Holidays! This is a picture of my two oldest daughters and myself. Our youngest daughter wasn't able to come with us but the good news is that she made the All-State Choir! We missed her being with us but we are so very proud of her. While I have been busy having fun with Family, I did create a few more Christmas cards. Have you started your cards or Christmas crafts? I sure hope so! Here is one of the cards I created for a family member to send out this year. This card measures 5 x 7". I used Crafter's Companion Gold Mirror Luxury cardstock. I love how this turned out. The gold against the white cardstock looks so elegant. The snowflakes are from the Crafter's Companion Sparkling Snowflakes 1 & 2 die sets. The reindeer is from the Sara Signature Collection - Scandinavian Christmas. the sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set and I added a bit of gold twine behind the sentiment just to finish it all off. I did create a smaller version (A2 size) of this card. I used an embossing folder to supply some of the snowflakes and just added a few gold snowflakes. This was a bit faster to create and it's a "normal" size card. Here are the two cards together. I like both versions! Hope I have given you some good ideas for your Christmas cards today. I am still creating cards and other projects so I will have lots to share. I already made some Christmas Cracker Toffee to give as gifts to some special friends this weekend. So now I will need to create some special cards to go with the toffee. This is one of my most favorite recipes. Everyone who tries it just loves it! Check out this recipe!! Saltine Toffee Thanks for stopping by today ! Continue reading

Hello friends! It's time for another crafty day with Crafter's Companion on HSN (Home Shopping Network). I am actually giving you a bit of a head's up this time because the crafty day is November 6! I have been having so much fun creating projects for this show. I have a bunch of projects to share with you over the next week and I hope you will check out all the fun stuff on HSN on November 6. You can check out everything that is going to be on the show from Crafter's Companion HERE plus there will be air times listed soon! One of the bundles that Crafter's Companion will be showcasing on this show is a Core Nested Die bundle. It's a very good essentials bundle of squares, circles, rectangles and oval dies. There are three styles in each shape - Stitch Edge, Torn Edge and Scalloped. The Stitch Edge is my absolute favorite! Here are a couple of cards I created using some of the Stitch Edge dies..... For this card, I used the Square Stitch Edge dies and the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Winter Wonderland papers. I love the added interest the stitched edge gives to this card. The sentiment is a die cut from the Gemini Festive Words 1 die set cut from some Winter Wonderland Luxury Cardstock. For this card I used the Torn Edge and the Stitch Edge square dies. First I die cut a bunch of squares from the different patterns of paper and adhered those squares onto the white cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - A Winter's Tale. Then I used the Torn Edge Square die to die cut the piece to size! I added the Word's of the Season (from A Winter's Tale) sentiment die cut in Gold Mirror Luxury cardstock to the bottom to give the card a touch of elegance. The gold ribbon adds just the right touch, don't you think?? I have quite a few more projects to share with you over the next week and I hope I give you some new ideas on ways to use these new dies! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends. It is finally fall here in Missouri. This morning it was pretty cold, around 46 degrees, and we are all dealing with the shock to our system. I have been going thru my stash to start planning my Christmas cards this year. Last year I made and sold over 100 Christmas cards plus I made 30 for our family. I want to start early so I am not making cards at the last minute (famous last words!). There was a Crafter's Companion Crafty day on HSN (Home Shopping Network) last week and in preparation for that, I created some fun Christmas cards using the Cute Christmas Card kit that Crafter's Companion just released. It sure does make creating cards quick and easy! Here are a few of the cards I made...... I used A2 White Cardstock card bases for all of these cards but one! There is a square card that measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". The card kit says it will make a minimum of 16 cards but I know that you can make alot more than that! If you don't include the ribbon, I bet these cards don't require extra postage either - well except for the square card - those are always extra postage! You can check out the Crafter's Companion Cute Christmas Card Companion Kit on HSN (Home Shopping Network) while supplies last! Thank you for stopping by today! Let me know if you are interested in seeing the Christmas cards I will be creating to sell. I would love to see even more this year! Continue reading

Hello friends. So today is October 1. That usually means it's fall and the weather is cooler and the leaves are blowing. Except for this year, the high is supposed to be in the 90's today and the leaves haven't really even started to change here in Missouri yet. It's really weird but kinda nice, too. We spent alot of this past weekend outside enjoying the weather. I am going to keep enjoying this nice weather because I have a feeling that this winter is going to be brutal. Today I have two cards to share with you that I created with some new stuff from Crafter's Companion called Butterfly Dimensionals. There is one stamp set with a set of matching dies, 3d embossing folder plus another set of dies that are just butterflies! As you can see for this card I used the embossing folder on some Pearl Ivory Shimmering Cardstock. This cardstock embosses really well and the shimmering cardstock looks so pretty, too. I stamped and heat embossed the large butterfly. Then I die cut the small flowers and added some pearls to the center of them. For this card, I used two butterfly dies from the set that don't die cut all the way out. You can snip them once you die cut or you can leave them to pop off the page like I did here. The flower border is included in the butterfly dies set. I love how these cards turned out. You can see more projects and purchase these products on HSN (Home Shopping Network) on October 9, 2018 during the Crafter's Companion segments! I will keep you posted on times as soon as I know! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I have something fun to share with you. Have you ever purchased or made an Advent Calendar where you open the little boxes for a gift everyday during the holiday season? You usually have these calendars for the kids, right? Last year, I bought my youngest daughter an advent calendar full of lipstick! LOL She got 24 lipsticks leading up to Christmas and she had alot of fun with the whole thing! Now I found an Advent Calendar that is just for us die cutting lovers! If you were lucky enough to catch the die cutting Advent Calendar on the Crafter's Companion crafty day on HSN last month, then you are going to really have fun. If you don't want to see what you are getting, now is the time to leave my blog.....I don't want to spoil anything for those who like surprises! I know I will be using these dies again and again. Very versatile! I die cut the beer steins from gold mirror cardstock and white sparkly cardstock. I also used Stick It! adhesive on the back of the brown cardstock before die cutting the sentiments. This just really makes it easier to attach such intricate dies. I know that the Advent Calendar is sold out on the HSN website but I haven't heard if it will be offered on the Crafter's Companion website or not. If I find out something, I will let you all know because this will be super fun! Thanks for stopping by! Continue reading

Hello friends! I recently received a shipment of goodies from Crafter's Companion to create with for the next crafty day on HSN (Home Shopping Network) on October 9. Before I start the sneak peeks of those products, I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I created using the recently released Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Sew Lovely. This collection is really beautiful and just my style! This collection is not available on Crafter's Companion's website just yet, but it is available on HSN. All you have to do is search for Crafter's Companion! Here are my two projects! The products I used are: Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Sew Lovely - Decorative Ribbons die, Dressmaker die set, Thread & Thimble Stamp set, 12 x 12 paper pad, Metal Charms. This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". I used kraft cardstock for the base. The products I used for this card: Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Sew Lovely - Taylor Made Stamp set, Sashiko Embossing Folder, Seamstress die set 12 x 12 paper pad, metal charms, Washi Tape. This card measures 5x7" and uses Kraft cardstock for the base. The washi tape looks alittle washed out here but in real life it's alot darker. Thanks for stopping today!

Hello friends. I really thought that once school started, I would be posting on my blog more often but that just hasn't been the case. Sorry about that.....but Thank You so much for sticking with me and checking things out when I do post! We had a milestone birthday in our house last week. My youngest daughter turned 18 years old and we partied all week. LOL Not really but her older sisters came home, her friends came over, we went out to her favorite place and had dinner. It was awesome! In between getting things ready for a labor day party, birthday party and just live, I had some time to create a few cards using some new Christmas items being released by Crafter's Companion today (9/11). I really love these two stamps with matching edge dies. They are really unique and easy to work with! For this card, I used the Snowflakes stamp & die set from the Christmas Spirit bundle (available on HSN - Home Shopping Network) on 9/11/18. I heat embossed the image using the Glistening Silver embossing powder from the Winter Wonderland Collection. The sentiment is from the Christmas Sentimentals 1 die set. I used some matte luxury cardstock for the base and behind the sentiment. This is the stockings stamp set from the Christmas Gifts bundle. Each set includes a stamp and two edge dies. You can die cut the image completely out or just die cut one or the other edge. Here is die cut the edge of the stockings and then I used the other edge die to die cut the gold mirror cardstock to reveal the stockings. I love how this turned out! Thanks for stopping by today! I do have more projects to share a couple more Christmas projects and a couple just regular everyday cards! Continue reading

Hello friends! I hope you are watching the HSN Crafty day with all the wonderful new Crafter's Companion stuff! I know I am having fun watching and seeing my projects on air. It's so neat and never gets old. Here are a few more cards I created using the Christmas themed stuff that was on sale today. I am really getting ahead on my Christmas cards already! Yeah Me!! For this card, I used the Christmas 3d embossing folders bundle along with some gold guilding wax. The hardest part about this card is getting the guilding wax off my fingers! LOL Maybe I should use a sponge instead....duh! For this card, I used the Sparkling Snowflakes Bundle along with the Ice Blue Luxury Cardstock pack. That pack of paper includes the blue luxury cardstock in matt and mirror plus the silver mirror and glitter card. It's a really pretty combo. I used alot of Stick It! adhesive for this card but if you have a xyron that will probably work even better! For this card, I used the Holiday Mini Crafting bundle. Everything in this bundle fits in the Gemini Go machine. That's the today's special on HSN today (8/15). It's the cutest machine that is perfect to take along with you almost anywhere. Hope you are watching the HSN crafty day cause there is alot of cool things to get. Thanks for stopping by today!! Continue reading

Beverly, The lacey border is just patterned paper from the collection. But I think there is a die that Crafter's Companion sells that is similar. I will look for it and find a link.

Hello friends! In addition to alot of Christmas stuff, Crafter's Companion sent me other stuff as well. There were some really nice sentiment dies for everyday that I think will become a staple in my crafting. Don't forget, all of these products will be available on HSN on August 15 for Crafter's Companion crafty day! For this card, I used the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Rustic Wedding. The papers and the heart die are all from that collection. The "thank you" sentiment is from the Everyday Sentimentals bundle that will be available on August 15 on HSN. The Rustic Wedding collection is available on the Crafter's Companion website now and it's one of my favs!! I would like to take a minute to tell you that I am on the Crafter's Companion design team and I am compensated with free products.

I really love to hear from you and what you think about the products I use, so if you have a minute please comment and let me know if you use Crafter's Companion stuff and if you like the projects I have posted.
