Don’t throw anything away!

Make something cute out of your used fruit cans, like this! I suppose you can use any type of can, but even after washing a little scent remains, so pick something you like! I made this out of a can of pineapples. I just removed the label and covered it with some of our new Petals & Paisleys designer series paper. Then I made a little tag using the hostess level 1 set called Tags So Much. The crinkled paper used for filling is made from strips of card stock run through the crimper…so simple, and what a great way to use up some scraps! I used a small cellophane bag with Hershey’s kisses inside, and tied it all up with Moss Grosgrain Ribbon.


Don’t you just love Roses in Winter?


I do! I made this quick card to send to a friend whose mom is making me a "I Love Stamping" Apron! Roses in Winter is always a great choice for something quick but nice. I used Apricot Appeal for the base of the card, stamped with the Floral Background in the same color. For the rose portion I used Rose Red, Certainly Celery, and Apricot Appeal. The word "Thank You" is from the set Much Appreciated. I also sponged a little Rose Red around the edge of the card, and used Celery Narrow Organdy Ribbon for a little accent. You could really just change out the words and use this card for many different occasions!

My Blog is Live!

I’m finally ready to let my blog be seen! It’s definitely in the very beginning stages, but I will be adding more and more as time goes on. I’m going to post new samples I’ve created several times a week so you can get some new ideas!  You can always check out my upcoming events to the right and join me at one of my classes to learn more fun stamping stuff!

Looky what I got today!

Img_3398_4 A Watermark! I just love it!! I had made this birthday card a couple of days ago, and just had to try out my new watermark! I ordered mine from a very talented lady, Cindy Keery…you can check out the information to order your own HERE.

For this card, I used the Treehouse designer papers from SU!, which I love for masculine cards. This one was for my sister’s boyfriend. I also used the Prep School ribbon, which I think matched great with the dotted papers! I punched a large circle out of the front of the card, and used dimensionals to attach a smaller circle inside the card. It was very easy, but I’m really please with how it came out.
