  • April Blog Hop – Silver Sparkle for Weddings or Anniversaries

    Its blog hop time!  This time, the theme is Weddings & Anniversaries.  Now, all I could remember when I started working on my projects was the challenge to use silver in honor of Stampin’ Up’s 25th anniversary.  So, my mind was stuck on my silver glimmer paper when I got started. However, I was lucky […]

  • Wishing You A Merry Christmas!

    Christmas Eve was the start of a wonderful few days with my family; and so I’ll be busy with family dinners, gift exchanges, and playing with the kids.  But I wanted to make sure to stop by and wish you all a very merry Christmas! Here is a card for all of you that I […]

  • Thank You Card Sample with Orchard Harvest

    I’m still getting through last month’s card class projects to post, but I wanted to share this Thank You card today while it is still – sort of – fall time.  Plus, I wanted to share something other than Christmas for a change of pace. I reached for my Orchard Harvest designer series paper as […]

  • A Rainbow Card for You

    I was trying to come up with a card idea for my Crystal Effects technique class recently and wanted an example where we used Crystal Effects as a clear glue for clear buttons or embellishments.  So, I started playing with my Bitty Buttons and came up with this card: I was drawn to the bright […]

  • Mixed Bunch Summer Flower

    Oops!  If you visited my blog early this morning, you got a sneak peek of this post because I accidentally had a draft version (with pictures and no text) scheduled to publish early in the morning and I completely forgot I had done that. 🙂 But, I’m not sad to have shared this card.  This […]

  • Getting Back to Watercolor Crayons

    When I was asked recently to put together a card using Watercolor Crayons, I wasn’t sure how it was going to go; but I decided I was up for the challenge.  The person really liked a card by Meg Loven using the Simply Soft set and so I looked around my craft room and spied […]

  • Pretty Papillion Potpourri

    I recently had someone request that I put together a class for her and some friends based around a few cards she had seen online.  Unfortunately, one of the cards used the old Strength and Hope stamp set that retired last year and I had never purchased.  So, I set to trying to come up […]

  • Quint-Essential Workshop Card

    I recently had the opportunity to go to my friend Katie’s house to share a card and the new Stampin’ Up! products with her friends.  It was a fun evening and it gave me some motivation to pull out my new Quint-Essential Flower stamp set and play with some different color combinations.   So, if […]

  • Elegant Congratulations Graduation Card

    Last week I held my Dads and Grads class and as I was trying to plan my cards I realized that I had no idea what colors people would want or need for their graduation card.  So, it quickly turned into an elegant black and white card that could be used for any school out […]

  • The Coolest Flower Stamp: The Triple Treat Flower

    Sometimes when a stamp is slated to retire, it makes sense.  You can see that the set is looking outdated or there have been new stamps that look almost the same.  But then there are the stamps that I just don’t get…. this is one of them. I mean, check out how cool this flower […]

  • Mixed Bunch Quick Thank You Card

    There is something about being a card maker that somehow has tweaked my brain to where I can never seem to let a package get mailed from my house without a card in it!  Even if I’m ready to walk out the door to the post office, I have to walk through my craft room […]

  • Cheery Berry Blossom Thinking of You Card

    Earlier this week, I held a card class with my meetup group (if you are in the Seattle-area, I’d love to have you join us!).  I was using convention displays as inspiration for the four cards we were going to be making; but after designing the first 3, I decided that my 4th card was […]
