  • Beautiful Tie-Dyed Tree with Sheltering Tree and the Leaflet Thinlits

    Don’t you just love when you find two things in your craft room that don’t officially go together, but they just work together perfectly??  I was so blown away when I was given a card by fellow demonstrator Jen Martin that overlaid the Leaflet framelits with the Sheltering Tree trunk.  So I made my own […]

  • Christmas Card Joy with Peaceful Pines

    I really did have grand plans this year to get all of my Christmas cards out early.  After years of being terrible about NOT sending out cards at all, last year I sent out around 70 holiday cards and it felt great to be putting a little cheer out through the mail.  So, I was […]

  • Sponged Vellum Flowers Make Great Cards!

    I finally got some time this weekend to play for a while in my craft room and it felt great!  I was finishing up samples and projects for today’s Creating with Vellum class and once again ended up with way more samples and ideas than I had time to create to share, let alone everyone […]

  • Seeing Stars Graduation Card

    I know it is a little early to be thinking about school graduations.  Though now that I think about it, I graduated college during the month of March, so I guess it might not be too early for some.  Anyways, I was asked to design a graduation card for a stamp camp last week and […]

  • Sometimes the Card Wins

    If you have been to any of my classes or events, you’ve probably heard me say “its not a mess up, its just an opportunity for embellishment!”  And I really do believe that when you do something and say “oops!” you can usually tweak your card design or add an embellishment and you will still […]

  • Sponging up a No Layer Card

    Each week, the Late Night Stampers group has some kind of challenge.  This week was particularly intriguing to me as the challenge was to create a single/no layer card.  When I first read this, I thought, “won’t these cards be boring?”  Well, boy was I wrong!  Folks came up with all kinds of cool ways […]

  • My last index card – Sweet Stems

    My last index card I needed to make for Splitcoast Stampers was for the stamp set Sweet Stems.  I was hesitent to buy this set because I had bought and regreted Pocket Silhouettes, another small flower set.  However, after looking at the stamp set and all the coordinating items (besides the stamp set you have […]
