Hi, There, Stampers! With all that's going on in my life (nothing terrible - just time-consuming) I don't often have the time to sit down and design my own cards. In fact, after I designed the card that you saw in my last article, I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to send out Halloween Cards this year at all! But all I had to do was go to Pinterest, key in the name of the Halloween … [Read more...] about Having Fun CASEing Halloween Cards

Hi, There, Stampers! I have been having a week of playing with paper-piecing designs for my greeting cards. I'll be sharing some of them with you over the next week or two. For today's card, I wanted to use some Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper to make a quilt block pattern that celebrated the 4th of July. I just could not find anything with a bright red in my paper stacks. But then I saw the … [Read more...] about Happy 4th of July!
Hi, There, Stampers! Have I mentioned that I had a challenge with myself to use all my new Stampin' Up! products at least once during the month of May? Well, I made it! I know today is June (June 1st!). But I made this card, as well as the one I'll show you in a bit, during May. I have to tell you that, when I first skimmed through the 2023-2024 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, the very first … [Read more...] about Fun With the Earthen Elegance Suite!
Hi, There, Stampers! I love it when I find something hidden in Stampin' Up!'s catalogs! And with the newest catalog, I've found a few. What I mean by that is that there's something in the catalog that's not actually called out as a featured part in any of the designs, but it's still there. Do you ever see the tiny notes that appears on many of the pages of photos? What they'll sometimes tell you … [Read more...] about Fun Ideas for Using Patchwork Pieces Dies!

Hi, There, Stampers! I apologize for not being around much lately. I'm having some health issues and just haven't had as much time to devote to my crafting as I usually have. Crossing fingers that this is something that is easily fixed and I can get on with life! But I am still doing some crafting and wanted to share this special project with you. Sending a Card With a Gift Quilt Our … [Read more...] about A Quick Quilt Card Request
Hi, There, Stampers! If you've followed me for any time at all, you know that the style of my card-making/stamping is to layer things up and arrange items carefully on my card fronts. But earlier this week I decided to break free from what I usually do and try something totally different. I think I succeeded at least partially. What is "Shabby Chic"? I belong to a group of Stampin' Up! … [Read more...] about A Bit of a Different Style

Hi, There, Stampers! My final post about Sale-a-bration will be on Monday, and Sale-a-bration 2023 ends on Tuesday. So sad to see some of these products no longer available.

Even now as I look at this card, I wonder how I came up with this color combination. Then I remember … [Read more...] about Sale-a-bration Is Almost Over!
