Hydrangea are Blooming!

In my last blog post I mentioned that I needed to share some of the cards that I have made with the Hydrangea Suite of products in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  I bought this stamp set back in February, so it's about time I used it!  Maybe I was waiting for spring..... The paper… Continue reading Hydrangea are Blooming!

Puzzle Card with Fine Art Floral

How about a little Friday fun?  The design of the card I am sharing today is called a Puzzle Card......but there is a piece missing from the picture! And that is because it is on the inside of the card in the spot where it would be if it was on the front (where it… Continue reading Puzzle Card with Fine Art Floral

Challenging Myself with the Berry Blessings Bundle

In my last post I shared several of the cards that my group of stampers made in response to a Card Challenge. You can see that post here:  Sharing a Card Challenge.  I needed a little "card therapy", myself, so I appealed to my "craft courier" (aka my husband) to bring a bunch of my… Continue reading Challenging Myself with the Berry Blessings Bundle

Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold

I have another Fun Fold card for you today!  I actually made this card last November.  When Stampin' Up! had the annual convention (it was virtual this year), we got a sneak peak and the chance to order the Dandy Garden Suite of products.  But I waited to share this card until the new January-June… Continue reading Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold

A New Year’s Resolution –

Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I rarely do because I never keep them. I’m good for a few weeks and by February, it’s all out the window. And every year it’s always the same thing.....and it’s what I see most other people have on their list too....do something more (exercise, spend more time with… Continue reading A New Year’s Resolution –

Fun Fold – Double Dutch is not just for Jump Ropes

I loved to jump rope when I was younger.  It was always a race to get to the jump ropes at recess so we could be first on the playground so we had a space to jump Double Dutch.  But Double Dutch is not only for jumping, it also for fun when you are making… Continue reading Fun Fold – Double Dutch is not just for Jump Ropes
