    Painted Season Ideas for the Last 2 Days of Sale-a-Bration 2019

    I love when you find a stamp set and coordinating patterned paper that work for a wide range of seasons and sentiments; and that is what the Painted Seasons bundle turned out to be for me this Sale-a-Bration! So, since we only have 2 days left of Sale-a-Bration 2019, I thought I would share with […]

  • Find your favorites with Designer Paper and a massive Ribbon Share

    Now that you’ve had a chance to see the new catalog, you’ve probably noticed there are lots of fabulous new papers and ribbons available.  If you are like me, you have a hard time choosing which pack of paper or which spools of ribbon to get, especially without seeing it in person.  Well now is […]

  • A couple cards for my new Meetup group

    Since I’m pretty new to the Bay area, I recently decided to start up a Meetup group as a way to meet new folks and find some other like-minded crafty people.  Today was our first meetup, and so I planned a couple cards for us to work on over pie at Marie Callendars.  Between work […]

  • Another card organization option – a year in a box!

    As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been slowly trying to get my crafting supplies, partial projects, and completed projects organized so I can actually find what I’m looking for in less than 20 minutes. 🙂  Well, when my mom was visiting last month, she brought with her the instructions for a great project.  Using the Forget-me-not […]

  • The first baby card of the season

    So, I’m realizing that I’m now of the age that wedding seasons are winding down and its baby time for many of my friends.  Over the last month or two, I’ve learned that at least 5 friends are pregnant with most of their due dates being later this summer and fall.  I’m so excited for […]

  • BigShot butterflies and a fun candy purse

    Hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day weekend!  I enjoyed some time with the DH at home on Saturday and then Sunday we drove up to Seattle to meet up with some friends and participate in a puzzle event (think, Amazing Race only with puzzles to tell you where to go next instead of […]

  • Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Ok, so I know this post is a little late, but better late then never, right?  I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have been visiting and leaving me comments.  It really perks up my day to have you all stopping by and saying hello.  Especially with weeks like this […]

  • Congrats and Thinking of You Cards

    This weekend was a lot of fun.  I hosted an Open Scrap day at my home on Saturday.  I had planned on sitting an working on my personal projects while the other ladies worked on their projects; but of course, I was way to social for that. 🙂 I was playing with my new BigShot, […]

  • One of the cards from this weekend’s card kit

    While I waited for my UPS delivery to arrive so I can finish my scrapbook layouts, I spent last night working on cards.  This card grew a bit organically from me starting with the grey base, then picking the pink, then finding a layout, and then deciding on the stamp set.  I don’t know quite […]

  • Thank You Kindly Index Card and the Philosophy of Card Fronts

    For a while now, I’ve been a member of the card front club.  That is, someone who participates in card front swaps and who creates card fronts when making new card projects.  I always told myself, “I’m saving cardstock this way” and some folks say it saves a lot of room when storing your cards.  […]

  • Making door prizes for a crop

    As I’ve said in prior posts, I’m visiting my mom this week to help her out with some events (a party for her on Tuesday and a Crop where we will be demo’ing a free make and take on Saturday). So, yesterday was my day to help make sure we had everything in order for […]

  • New Ribbon Storage

    So during the recent holiday extravaganza sale, I decided to give in to my eternal debate for how to store all my ribbon and order the SU ribbon holders.  I had most recently been just stacking the ribbon in towers with my other stamping supplies, which doesn’t work so well because they kept falling over!  […]
