  • Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker

    Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker

    Back when Stampin’ Up had Chalkboard Paper, we also got the White Chalk marker.  And I knew what to do with it… duh, you use a chalk marker on chalkboard paper!  🙂  But then, the chalkboard paper went away and the chalk marker remained, which made me think there had to be other great uses for […]

  • Beautiful Backgrounds from Moroccan Nights

    Way back at Stampin’ Up OnStage in April, I was given the Moroccan Nights stamp set (love the perks of getting free stamps when you go to demonstrator events! ).  But the problem was, it wasn’t a stamp set I had really looked at before or thought was my style.  Which meant it sat on […]

    So, yesterday I was (correctly) chastised for getting behind on posting on the blog. So, I had to hop-to and get another one of my recent favorites up to share with you. Today I have another card from my Holly Jolly Greetings Class by Mail, it has lots of little details but I love how […]

  • How to Make Your Own Gift Bags with the Gift Bag Punch Board Video Tutorial (Walkthrough Wednesday)

    So, I had the chance to order the new to Stampin’ Up Gift Bag Punch Board during the demonstrator preorder… but I didn’t get it.  I hemmed and I hawwed.  Did I really need another punch board in my life?  But my Mom had one, and so I decided to give it a go.  All […]

  • Love My Layered Flower Punches and Burlap

    Love My Layered Flower Punches and Burlap

    Every month as I start working on cards for my monthly card class and stamp club, I remember why I love doing this.  It is always fun to create a card of a scrapbook page based on what I see, but for me, it gets even more exciting when I think about what I can […]

    Watercolor Notecard Weekend–Day 1 Fun with Happy Watercolor

    Ok, I know I’ve been sharing a lot with Happy Watercolor and even the Watercolor Wonder Notecards, but I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with them and I want to share them since I know a lot of folks have ordered the stamp set and the notecards.  I figure more idea for how […]

  • A New Way to Color Your Stamped Images with Marker

    Recently, my mom showed me a new way to try coloring in your images with your markers.  To show me what she was talking about she created this card: It uses the new Flower Shop stamp set and punch sitting atop the stem from Field Flowers.  Great idea, huh? Now, to do the coloring, she […]

  • A Little Bit Of Love…and Scallops and Pearls

    I hope you don’t mind one more Cross My Heart card sample.  I know, I’ve been using it a lot this week, but that is just because I went on a creating spree with the set and most of the cards I have photographed right now use it.  But hopefully by now you can see […]

  • A Handmade Wedding Book and Card

    I’m back!  I had such a blast in Vegas. This was my first vacation since having my son, and though I missed him, it was great to have adult time and he got some quality time with Grandma. We also lucked in to a crazy room upgrade – we got a room on the “50”th […]
