Nuts and Bolts Fun Fold Valentine

Happy New Year!.....a wee bit late!   Oh my!  It's been sooooo long since I posted.  I took a planned break right before Christmas with all good intentions to be back to my blog in January.  I'm here, but a bit later than I intended!  We had a little water leak on Christmas Eve morning....our upstairs… Continue reading Nuts and Bolts Fun Fold Valentine

Snowbody Better…One More Time

I was looking through my stash of Designer Series Paper to see what I haven't really used....or need to use soon!  This paper, the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper caught my eye (along with another set of paper I have barely used...but I'm saving that for next week!).  This set of papers is done is… Continue reading Snowbody Better…One More Time

Snowbody Better….CASing the Catalog

Have you ever been stuck for an idea?  One of the best places to look for ideas is to check out the Stampin’ Up! Catalog or the Stampin' Up! website.  For the website, search for the Stamp Set (or product) you are using and usually there is a picture or two of the product used… Continue reading Snowbody Better….CASing the Catalog

Snowbody Better

I love snow!  Probably because where I live on the coast of Virginia, we don't get much....if at all.  If we had snow all the time, I might rethink that.  And I also love snowmen.  I have quite a few Hallmark Snowmen around my house during the Christmas holidays.  My husband installs and tests the… Continue reading Snowbody Better

Tissue Paper Stamping for Christmas

In my last post, I shared how I made a Thanksgiving Card using Tissue paper to stamp a background.  You can see that post HERE.  Today I am sharing that same layout and tissue paper stamping but for a Christmas Card.

Tissue Paper Stamping

I hope the title of this post got your attention.  So what is Tissue Paper Stamping?  It’s exactly what it says….taking a piece of tissue paper, wadding it up, tapping it on an ink pad and then “stamping” onto your cardstock.  And the result can be something like this: The background behind the leaf was… Continue reading Tissue Paper Stamping

Seasonal Swirls for Thanksgiving

Do you put a wreath on your front door?  Do you change it out for every season or holiday?  I do-not.  Mainly because my front door does not have a glass or screen door and anything I put up gets weather-beaten in a flash.  Even the Christmas Wreath which is the one thing I do… Continue reading Seasonal Swirls for Thanksgiving

Layered Thanksgiving Card

I’m on a roll with these Thanksgiving cards.  There is still time for you to make a few of these cards and get them in to mail.  Today’s card is very similar to yesterday’s post….but I switched up the cardstock colors, the embossing folder and instead of stamping a leaf, I die cut one instead.… Continue reading Layered Thanksgiving Card

Thanksgiving Cards – Quick and Easy

If you saw my last post, you’ll know that I was recently tasked with making Thanksgiving cards.  And in case you missed it, you can see the post here: Thanksgiving Cards??   I started out simple and I think this one might even beat the first card in the simplicity category.   The Designer Series paper… Continue reading Thanksgiving Cards – Quick and Easy

Thanksgiving Cards??

I was asked a question the other day and I hesitated a little before I answered.  The question was “Now that you are done making Halloween things, are you making Thanksgiving cards?”  I thought for a couple seconds and said, “People don’t really send many Thanksgiving cards, so I’m more focused on Christmas”. Ha!  Wrong… Continue reading Thanksgiving Cards??
