Aloha, all! Yesterday I shared a card made with the Stamp Set, Easter Blossoms. It was a square card with square punched elements in each of the four corners of the card. Today's card uses the same stamp set, designer series paper set (Springtime Vintage), and basic layout.

I had decided at the beginning of the Stampin' Up! year in August 2008 that I would send a … [Read more...] about It’s Easter Seasion – Part II

This is the group for you--just click on the button bottom right). This was a real swap with real paper and ink and glue, not just a photo on a website! I got it sent off to the swap coordinator this … [Read more...] about It’s Easter Season–Part I
