Aloha, all! One of the first stamp sets that I bought when I started using Stampin' Up! products (years ago) was a set that used "2-step stamping." I had been a rubber stamp addict in my younger years, and loved it when I could use my old stamp aligner to put two stamping images just where I wanted them on the paper. Now here was Stampin' Up! with stamps just made for that … [Read more...] about Workshop Project I: 2-Step Stampin’ with the New Mini
Aloha, all from your card stock, paper and ribbon junkie (I've officially designated myself that as I can't move around the craft room for all of the ribbon and paper all ove My craft room is overflowing with little boxes I've made with the Sizzix Box #2 die. I am just so fascinated with the idea that I can make a box without a pencil or computer to draw it and a pair of scissors to cut it … [Read more...] about Parisian Breeze in a Box!
Aloha, all! Yesterday I showed off some of my last minute Valentine projects for the ladies who were coming to my New Catalog Open House today. Today, I'd like to focus on the little box that I made with the Sizzix Die called "Box #2." This little box die has GOT to be the easiest way to make a little gift box that I've ever used!

Aloha, all! It's very hard for me to browse a magazine rack and not pick up the latest issue of everything stamping and scrapbooking.

But the ideas in ALL of these magazines are just priceless when you just need a shot of creativity juice! My latest … [Read more...] about It’s More Fun With Stampin’ Up!

Like yesterday's Christmas Card, today's uses the Little Felt Flurries from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog. Today, though, I really added the embellishments big time! For starters, I used the lovely background paper from the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper pack, accented with some Riding Hood Red card stock. On top of that, I layered some Baja Breeze 1" Double-Stitched … [Read more...] about Further Felt Flurry Fun!
The last few days, I've been featuring cards that I've made as gift sets. One of the stamp sets that I used was Pocket Silhouettes (item number 111672, if you'd like to order online). Here is another card that I made using the same stamp set, but using different techniques. For this card, I stamped three of the flower images using Whisper White Craft Ink (101731) on Baja Breeze … [Read more...] about Pocket Silhouettes – So Versatile!
