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″
