A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Do you love surprises??  I do!  Especially when it comes inside a present.  Did you know you can make a card that looks like a present and then hide a gift inside?  How about a card like this?  Usually I’m just expecting to open the card and see a familiar signature wishing me happy thoughts.… Continue reading A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Merry Little Elves

The little elves are cut directly from the… Continue reading Merry Little Elves

Two in One – Card & Gift Card Holder

Isn’t it fun when you can do two things at once?  Not the old “pat your head and rub your tummy” at the same time.  I haven’t tried it lately, but I used to be able to do it.  Now I’m more into multitasking with the cards I am making.   December is the time… Continue reading Two in One – Card & Gift Card Holder

Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored.  I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves.  But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

Swapping

I had the chance to travel to Orlando November 7-11 to attend Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Live celebrating their 30th Birthday.  Part of the fun was being to be able to “swap” with other demonstrators.  Swapping is when you make a card (or 40 cards in my case) and swap them to receive cards that other… Continue reading Swapping
