Jolly Christmas Card Video

Here is a wonderful video I came across today featuring cute paper folds, the Jolly Christmas stamp set,  and the adorable Stampin' Up! trainer, Shannon West. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did. I think I will be trying to recreate this fabulous card sometime in the near future.

If you’d like to order any of the products used to create this card, please feel free to go to my website or  email me.

Festive Paper!

I am loving the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (126904). The pages are super cute. They measure at just 4-1/2 x 6-1/2. I can make a card using just one of the sheets along with some cardstock for layering. I took one sheet and cut it at 5-1/2 x 1-3/4" They are double-sided and if you take one sheet, cut it and flip one side over, it matches the back of itself perfectly (hope you understood that one. it was a bit tricky) I also used ....ribbon...I am sure you guessed that! This ribbon is the cherry cobbler seam binding, along with a vintage brad. Gotta loves them!

Have you used these beautiful pages? Leave me a comment with a link to your project using the Festival of Prints Designer Series paper pack. Look for more to come.

The Ornament Card

Last week, I learned how to make the beautiful ornament on the cover of the new holiday mini and it is gorgeous!!! I can definitely see myself making a few more of these. Lots of fun! I made it at a class held by the talented Gail Murray. I decided to recreate the ornament (just one) and add it to a card. I got lots of practice making these 3D bulbss. The ornament calls for 5 of making just one was super easy. I guess I won't be able to mail this (he-he). This will definitely be a hand delivered one!

For this card I used crumb cake and very vanilla cardstock, gumball green and cherry cobbler classic ink along with a sheet of the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper stack 126904. You get lots of 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 sheets (48 to be exact). They are all stunning! I added some very vanilla seam binding ribbon, linen thread, a random brad and rhinestones. The rhinestones were strategically placed to cover up an oops. Can you see my little oops? Hope not. LOL!

A Scrapbooking Kind of a Day

Happy Sunday! I had an awesome day yesterday. I spent the day as a vendor at an all day crop at Aldine United Methodist Church in Elmer, NJ.  The crop was to benefit and support an organization called, New Hope Counseling.

Marie, Nancy, and Barb

I met the nicest group of women there. During the crop I sold LOTS of retired stamp sets and paper. I also did a couple of quick scrapbook sessions. I took this picture of my second group. This was the highlight of the day. I love sharing scrapbooking and card making with fellow crafters. The ladies made a scrapbook page using More Mustard and Soft Suede card stock, a few pages from the 2012-2014 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack, linen thread, and a variety retired buttons and brads. We also used the scallop edge punch and the petite pennants builder punch. I stamped "party" on my sample but the layout is versatile and can be used for any theme. The ladies will decide on their theme later. I want to thank all of the ladies for a wonderful day!

A Stippled Happy Birthday!

A quick post:

At Convention, I saw the cutest card using this stamp set. It's called, Stippled Blossoms, and knew I just had to have it. Last night I finally got the chance to try it out. Since going back to work I am finding less and less time to stamp. I have to find a better way to manage my time.  Using this stamp set has been on my mind for awhile. It's a two step stamp set. To get the two different colors, I inked my stamp, then stamped off before stamping the image where I wanted it. I just love the two step stamp sets and all that they add to the art of stamping. I also used rhinestones, vintage brads and linen seam binding ribbon.

Today we are heading to my sister in-law's 40th birthday party. This quick card will accompany the gift.

Back To School in MDS

It's an MDS kind of a day for me. My kids went back to school last Thursday and of course that meant picture day for me!!! I love taking their pictures on their first day back to school along with just about every other important day in their lives. These pages were lots of fun to make. I used the Back To School Ensemble download. It has so many cute elements. Do you have this download? If not, you can check it out at the link below:

Happy September

So sorry I've been M.I.A. this past week. I am back at work. I started back last Tuesday. The students in my district start today. It's an exciting time and a time when the responsibilities start to pile up. This is my new year (new school year) here's my new school year's resolution, "to be more organized..." now what does that look like???? Planning ahead and better scheduling. Hope I can pull it off. I'll keep you posted.

I've been so busy that I did not even get an MDS page together...I know...shame on me. I do however have a September MDS page that I created for our 2012 family calendar. The photos are from my kids first day of school last year. I make one of these calendars each year and at the end of the year the pages become part of our family's scrapbook. My kids begin school this coming Thursday so I need to get busy creating a new page for the beginning of this school year.
