As part of my Stampin' Up! business, I make stationery sets for all occasions, using Stampin' Up! products (they are the best, after all!). This week I'm working on invitations for a reception that will take place next month, and I just completed several sets of cards for a dear friend to give as gifts to people who are helping her during a current illness. These cards are made using Note … [Read more...] about Cards by Robin!

To help me feel more at home, I thought I'd share one of the … [Read more...] about Missing Hawai’i
It's only a month until Thanksgiving Day! It can't be a real Thanksgiving Table at our house without something handmade (besides the dinner) on the table. This is my first try at using two great lines of products from Stampin' Up! to make our table decorations.

I had lots of fun last week with some design challenges for World Card Making Day, which was earlier this month. I made this card with some colors that are so "not me"!

One of the new stamp sets in the 2008 Holiday Mini Catalog (a link is at the right) is, "Eat, Drink & Be Scary." I have to have everything Halloween, so bought it at the first chance.

I have been SOOOO nervous about using my small collection of Decor Elements vinyl transfers. But today, as I was decluttering the craft room, I decided now was the time to get them out. My favorite item from Phase I was the "Create" definition. If that doesn't belong in a crafter's room, I don't know where it belongs!! Now Stampin' Up! is about to release Phase … [Read more...] about Decor Elements – What Fun!
