    Faux Shaving Cream Backgrounds with Perfectly Artistic Paper

    I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the shaving cream backgrounds technique before – if not – let me just say, it gives you this neat white and color swirly background designs.  And it is fun to do but can be fairly messy.  So, when I was working on some thank you cards this month, […]

  • Come Join Me for Some Crafting!

    I just got back from a fun Holiday Party and Vendor fair and after talking to folks all afternoon, I realized that my last couple classes for the month are happening in the next week!  So, I’m going to hurry up and put the finishing touches on my projects but in the meantime wanted to […]

  • More baby gifts – thank you card set and a frame

    It seems like I know a lot of people having babies right now.  I reconnected with a friend recently on Facebook and learned she was due at the end of August with her first child.  I was so excited for her, I decided to make her a few things to send in addition to a […]

  • Stampin’ Up! Convention 2010 – Swaps, Shelli, and my new goal

  • 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 […]

  • 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.  […]

  • One set of supplies – two totally different cards

    So, as I mentioned in an earlier post, at my Thank You card stack some of the ladies took my basic card design and reimagined it into a completely different card.  To be honest, that is one of my favorite things about card parties and workshops.  People start getting creative and you come away with […]

  • Happy Thanksgiving – a card for you!

    Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving with friends and family.  I was up this morning and thought I would make you all a card. 🙂  Have a wonderful day and rest up for black friday tomorrow!  I have to say, I tried the 5 am start on Black Friday one year and once was […]
