Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

Mixing The Old With The New

While I would love to just pretend I won the lottery so I could buy all the new stamps and papers and ribbons and markers and every new color of cardstock in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalog, let’s just come to grips with reality and say “it ain’t gonna happen”.  But...I did purchase a few… Continue reading Mixing The Old With The New

Hello….Friend!

In the world we now live in that is full of technology....computers, iPhones, iPads....when we want to get in touch with someone, we reach out by emailing, texting and using facebook and instagram, etc.   Rarely do people write letters and send cards anymore and it’s actually quite sad.
