Ornate Garden Pocket Cards

Do you have too much Designer Series Paper that is piled up and you haven’t used?  All right, I am not sure that you can ever have too much, but I do need to make room for new Designer Series Papers that will be coming out in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  So, I have… Continue reading Ornate Garden Pocket Cards

Quick Easter Treats

As you might know the Last Chance Retiring List for the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is now out and those items that are retiring are only available until supplies last.   So you might be asking yourself....why should I buy items that are retiring?  The number one reason is that although Stampin' Up! is retiring those items,… Continue reading Quick Easter Treats

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

Enjoy the Moment

Way back in November I received this stamp set, Enjoy the Moment, at Stampin’ Up Online , their annual convention.  To be honest, it is not something that would probably purchase.  The images area a variety of seed pods and I recognize some of them as things that you might see in a dried flower… Continue reading Enjoy the Moment

Enjoy the Moment with a Fun Fold Card!

Who else likes to make Fun Fold cards?  If you are like me I'm always looking for something to make my cards a little different.  A Fun Fold card fits the bill.  I'm not sure if this fold has a name, but I like to call it a Tuck & Fold Fun Fold Card because… Continue reading Enjoy the Moment with a Fun Fold Card!

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 –

This was followed by a celebration and recognition of… Continue reading OnStage@Home & New Stamp Set Preview!
