Hi, There, Stampers! For today's projects, I'm headed over to the Stampin' Up! January - April 2023 Mini Catalog. I'm sure I'll get back to some Sale-a-bration projects. But I'm going to play with the Mini Catalog for a bit. Sometimes I just love to play with graphic designs when I’m making cards – or even constructing scrapbook pages.

Hi, There, Stampers! No, I didn't misspell "distinctive." Because that's not the word for this Stampin' Up! design technique that we can find in many of their stamp sets. The word is DistINKtive. That word, "ink," in the middle tells us that, just by stamping an image, it will end up with the color of the image having more than one shade.

Hi, There, Stampers! I hadn't planned to share another Christmas card with the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper set. But then I had scraps. And when I have as many scraps as I had after my original cards, I try to find something to make with them. That's why you're seeing my latest attempt at a Chevron Pieced card. All You Need Is Some 1" Squares To make the Chevron Design, all you … [Read more...] about One Last Card Using Celebrate Everything Paper
Hi, There, Stampers! I haven't looked back through my most recent posts, and I can't remember if I told you that my husband and I were going on our first road trip in 17 years. Well, we did and we made it back! We drove through 10 different states, 5 of them twice. Later on this month I'll share what I did with a fun Stampin' Up! kit while I visited with family in Minnesota! But for today, I … [Read more...] about Back from Vacation – With Something A Little Different

Hi, There, Stampers! I'm back with yet another card that I've made with the Amazing Year Stamp Set. Remember that my first impression was that this was a stamp set that was pretty much just for making birthday cards.
