Hi Everyone,

I have created this card for a swap that I am participating in  It is a Bridal Shower Card using the Apron of Love Bundle.  This bundle is amazing as it is very verstatile.   This is how I created the card.

Cardstock:  Fresh Fig, Powder Pink, Silver Foil, Whisper White

Stamp Set: Apron of Love with matching framelits;  Sentiment from Flourishing Phrases Stamp set.

Your card base is 4.4 by 5.5 of Fresh Fig;  the second layer is Powdered Pink cut at 4″ by 5.4″.

then you start to cut out your apron, utensils, and hearts to decorate the card.  You can make any combination of colors.  I hope you enjoyed it.

Stampin Up Holiday Catalog is Live

IMG_3876 (2)

The Holiday Catalog is live and you can start to place your orders.  There are so many cool items in this catalog.  I just ordered the Take Your Pick Tool.  See next paragraph.

 The Take Your Pick tool (item # 144107 found on page 30). I almost missed it as there were so many wonderful things to look at.  After viewing the video, I realized it does way more than I thought.  It has a putty end that aids in picking up items like sequins.  The other end has a spatula that helps in picking up adhesive-backed items or moving them after placed.  That spatula piece can be reversed to a paper piercer.  Also included is another piece that can be inserted there that has both a small and a large stylus.  This tool can be used to replace two tools so it’s easier to do everything with this one tool.  Amazing!!  A $10.00 value which is well worth it.

Take Your Pick Tool.


There are so many amazing bundles as well.  Please check out my Stampin Up Website.  You can download the catalog .

Happy Stampin!!



Crazy Summer

I have not blogged all summer  as it was filled with lots of company and beach days. I love the beach as it is my happy place.  My second love, is crafting.  I am busy making paper crafts to sell at our craft fair in our community this November.  I will post pictures of the items as I go along.  I did it last year and I had fun and did fairly well.  Better than I thought.

Of course I love Stampin Up.  Their new holiday catalog will be launch September 1st to all customers.  I guess I am addicted to all these new products.  If you order during the month of August a total of $50.00 you earn a $5.00 reward you can use in September.

If you haven’t received a catalog, and you wish for one, place an order and I will send you one for free.

I also sell my cards on E-Bay and take personal requests as well.

Happy Stamping

May Birthdays!!

It has been a few weeks since my last post.  I have been super busy planning my Dad’s 85th Birthday!  He was so surprised

His closest family members were there to celebrate. I made favors for the party and I found the idea from Pottles from the UK.  She has great tutorials.  My husband’s birthday is the day after.  I will post pictures below.  His happened to fall on Memorial Day this year.








Happy Birthday to my Son!!


May 10 was my son’s birthday and I always design my card for his special day!  36 years ago on May 10th I had him and it was Mother’s Day when I went in.  This was the best gift of all to have my son.  He has become a wonderful man, loving wife and loving Dad.
The card I designed uses the Truly Taliored Punch.
Here is how to make the card!
  • Cardstock:  base Earky Expresso cut at 4 1/4″ by 11″ Scored at 5 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla card stock:  layer onto base card. Cut at 4″ by 5 1/4″
  • Stamp Set: ” You Are A Work of Art”
  • DSP:  cut with punch 4 different patterns
  • Punch a scrap of Very Vanilla for sentiment
  • Arrange the punched out pieces of DSP in middle
  • Stamp sentiment on punched Very Vanilla
  • Using Dimensionals, Pop the Very Vanilla onto the DSP


Celebrate School Nurse Day

The week of May 6 through May 11th is National Nurses’ Week with May 9th we celebrate National School Nurse Day.  As many of you know, I was a school nurse for 30 years!  Every school deserves a school nurse.
So in honor of Nurses Week, I designed 4 cards using Stampin Up products.
Products used:
  • Card stock:  Real Red, Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Silver also retired (see pages 185-186 in Annual catalog)
  • Inks:  Real Red,  Memento Black (pg. 185 , 200)
  • Tailored Punch from Occasion catalog
  • Delicate Doilies  pg. 194
  • Stamp sets used:  Work of Art and Party Panda  (Salabration item)
  • Sentiments on the cards with the exception of “Fabulous work of Art) are non Stampin up as they pertain to nurses.
  • Scalloped punch (retired)
  • Stampin up markers:  Real Red and Pink Pirroutte ( retired)

The sentiments on the Panda’s are not from Stampin UP!  I had to order those from a special company!

Base Card stock cut at 4 1/4″ by 11″. Scored at 5 1/2″
