This is my Farewell to the old catalog stamp a stack class! We will be making 4 of each of these cards this Thursday. Cost of the class is $20 and includes all supplies. This will be your last chance to order from the current catalog. Things are already selling out so you don’t want to wait any longer.  Here are some close ups of the cards

This first card was originally created by my friend Michelle Avants. I loved the card but I did change the color to watermelon so I could use up some of the watermelon ribbon I had a surplus of. I am going to miss this ribbon.

The next 2 use the Timeless Elegance designer paper. I love, love, love this paper and I am going to miss it. I have 7 packs I have been hoarding for months so it is time to use it up!

By Lisa Freeman | May 16, 2016

Hey everyone,

I did a card challenge with my customers this month. The challenge was to create 2 of the same card and send one to a friend and one to me. From the cards I received, I picked this gorgeous one that was made by my friend Debbie Carter. She wins a $25 gift certificate from me!! Congratulations Debbie!

I love this card. It uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Butterfly Basics and the Butterfly thinlit die. Beautiiful!! The colors are pear pizzazz, wisteria wonder and eggplant.

Happy Mother’s Day!

By Lisa Freeman | May 8, 2016

mothers day

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms out there! Hope you have a very relaxing day with your families. I made this card using the Love Blossoms designer paper and the chalk talk framelets. The stamps are from the Timeless Texture set. I took a piece of Burlap ribbon about 14 in long and pulled it apart to get the separate strands. I am going to miss that ribbon! The colors are blushing bride, and crumb cake. It is a super easy card and a great way to use up that leftover designer paper. I have several extra packs of them that I need to use up this month. Have a great day. If you would like to order anything, just click on the shopping cart in the right sidebar.

Diamond Quilt Card

By Lisa Freeman | May 3, 2016


Here is a really easy card I just did in my technique classes last month. I got the idea from France Martin. She has a video that shows exactly how to make it. I am just going to give you the dimensions since I am not very good at doing videos.. It is super easy. 

The card base is 5 1/2 by 8 1/2.  Then the layers are

crumb cake-4×4, cherry cobbler- 3 3/4×3 3/4, white 3 1/2x 31/2, cherry cobbler embossed piece is 2 1/2×2 1/2,

Then you need 4 squares of designer paper each 1 1/4 . The 2 red ones I cut in half diagonally and lined up on the edges of the white piece. I used the Love Blossoms designer paper pack.
