Painted Harvest Framed Art

Hey Everyone,
I recently held a Painted Harvest framed art class and here is the project that we made.

I saw a card on Pinterest using these colors and absolutely loved it. They are wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant and soft suede. I also used a little bit of crumb cake and sahara sand for background stamps and sponging.

I used several stamp sets, including painted harvest, dragonfly dreams, timeless textures, ribbon of courage, butterfly basics, sheet music and touches of texture. 

I bought the 8×10 shadowbox frames from Michaels online. There are 3 in a pack for $30 but they go on sale for half price all the time, so they come out to about $5 a piece. The frame was included in the class.

Here are the measurements

crumb cake  8×10

wisteria wonder 6 1/2 x 8 1/2

soft suede 4×6

vanilla 3 1/2 x 5 1/2

small pieces:

soft suede 2×3 (3 of these)

vanilla 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 (3 of these)

I also used scraps of vanilla for the cutout pieces.




Marbled Background Meets Tranquil Tulips!

Hey everyone!

I am in love with the new Marbled Background stamp and if you blink, you might miss it in the Stampin Up catalog! It is on pg 165. It looks like the shaving cream technique that I used to do a long time ago. But it is so much easier and there is no sticky mess to clean up!! 

I also love the Tranquil Tulips hostess stamp set which you can find on pg 223. You can only get this stamp set if you are a hostess or place an order over $150. It won’t be available to order so make sure you book your party or place your qualifying order so you don’t miss out. 

You can see a close up below of the wink of stella colored on the flowers. I looove the wink of stella pen and if you tap the pen on the side of the lid, it will sprinkle little glitter dots on there. That’s how I did the notebooks farther down on this page. 


I also made a how-to video showing you how I made it. The video will not show up in an email feed so please click on the link to see the video. 



      I also made several notepads that I had left over from other classes and just changed the colors to go with the background color and pens that came with the pads. I used lemon lime twist and tempting turquoise for the first and last ones and the center one is pumpkin pie and pear pizzazz. I also splattered the wink of stella on these. You can use almost any color you want for these tulips and they are just gorgeous.

Quick and Easy Treat Bag!

Hey everyone!

I finally made another video! I hope once I make more of these, I can upload them and edit them faster. Don’t laugh at my mistakes.

I did it on facebook live, so I didn’t edit anything in the video. I do have a few bloopers in there! LOL!

Here is the project I am doing in the video




I used the Wood Words stamp set that you can find on pg 159 in the big Stampin Up catalog. I also used the Wood Textures designer paper (pg 187), cherry cobbler and white cardstock, burlap ribbon and linen thread (pg 198-199), and the 3×6 gusseted cello bags (pg 195)




This is a close up of the topper. 





This is the original project that my friend Michelle created and I just changed it up a little bit.

Hey everyone!

This month I am featuring the Hello Lovely Project Life kit found on pg 163 in the Stampin’ Up catalog.

I made an 8×10 framed art piece and 5 cards to go with it.  This would make a great gift for Mother’s Day or for a special friend. Who wouldn’t want to receive this gorgeous set?

This kit comes with 100 cards in 3 sizes that make it so easy to create beautiful projects. It was hard to pick out which ones I wanted to use because they are all so pretty.

I had tons on pieces left over to make even more cards or scrapbook pages. 


Classes are this Saturday(22nd) at 10am and next Thursday (27th) at 10 and 7. 

Cost of the class is $30 and includes all of your supplies including the frame, plus a free gift!
If you are in the Chesapeake/Va Beach area, I would love for you to come!

If you can’t make it, but would like to get a set of the completed projects (minus the frame), I can send them to you for $30 also.
Or you can order the kit and make it yourself. All of the Project Life kits are retiring so make sure you order your kit now before it’s gone forever! Just click on the shopping cart in the top right corner. 

Have a great week!!



Dragonfly Dreams Framed Art Tutorial

Hey everyone!

I had a great class a couple of weeks ago where we made this beautiful dragonfly framed art and a few other projects. Everyone had a great time, and I thought I would show you how easy it is to make framed art pieces. They are basically the same process as making a card, you just have to adjust your size to fit the frame you choose. I got this idea from a card I saw on pinterest. I changed it up a little bit but I loved the original idea. 

They make awesome birthday gifts for friends and family that they can display for years to come. A hand made gift always means so much to the person receiving it, because you took the time to actually make something for them.

Here are all of the projects that we made in class. The notepad uses the High Tide set and the box uses the Beautiful You stamp set. 

This is a close up of the matching card I made. And here is a video tutorial of how I made the framed art piece. It is super easy. I hope you make one too! If you like the video, please leave a comment and subscribe to my youtube channel and my blog for more ideas.

Stylish Stems Treat Bag

Hey everyone!

I finally made another video tutorial! I have been so busy at work lately that I haven’t had much time to work on my stamping projects. As many of you know, I work at an urgent care center full time, and we have been crazy busy lately with flu and other things. By the time I get home, I am exhausted. So, hopefully that is almost over and I can get back to creating. Stamping is my passion, and I miss being able to do it full time. But, until I win the lottery or meet my prince charming, I will have to continue to work another job in addition to my stamping business. I am trying to do more videos and blog posting so hopefully I can share more projects with everyone. If you like the projects you see, please subscribe to my blog and youtube channel so you will get the posts as soon as I make them.

This adorable treat bag is a white lunch bag in a smaller size. I got them at Sam’s club in a big pack for next to nothing. I think there were 500 in a pack. I embossed it with the petal burst embossing folder and then added the blooms and bliss designer paper and the paper cut out with the stylish stems framelits.  The how to video is at the bottom so just scroll down.




Here is a close up of the cut out part and I love how the paper shows through.


For the bow, I used the burlap ribbon and pulled the threads apart to make it fuller. Details are in the video below.



Here is the matching card to go with the treat bag. It is pretty much the exact same, I just made it into a card. The video is below. If you are getting this in an email feed, you might have to click on the link to go to my blog to see it. Hope you enjoy it.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all….hopefully you are having a great day. I am one of those single people that doesn’t really have any exciting plans for the day except stamping with the girls (which happens to be one of my favorite things to do!)!  I had a stamp class this morning and one of my awesome customers and friend (Lynn W) brought these adorable treats for everyone at the class so I had to share. The paper retired from Stampin Up a couple of years ago but you could easily copy the idea with the current papers.

She also made these treats for her granddaughter’s teachers and I am sure they loved them too. Who wouldn’t? I am so blessed to have such amazing customers like Lynn that are so thoughtful. I hope you have a wonderful day and if you are single, like me, then try to do something fun like stamping!



Valentine Sealed With Love

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to share a cute Valentine treat that I made using the Sealed With Love Bundle which you can find on pgs 14 and 15 in the Stampin Up Occasions Mini. I wanted to get this on here before Valentine’s Day so you can totally copy it if you like! I am doing this treat in my Feb classes next week so I hope all of my customers don’t mind me showing this ahead of time. I think they like to be surprised in class! LOL!




I made a video tutorial to show you step by step how I made it and it has all of the measurements on there too.

Sorry for the angle of this video. I got a new tripod and was trying it out and it looked fine while I was filming it but then when I uploaded it to youtube it was more slanted then on top like I wanted it to be but hopefully you still get the idea.

Star of Light Gift Card Holder

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to make this super easy gift card holder using a regular envelope! I made this about 2 weeks ago but it has taken me this long to make the video and post these pictures. I never imagined that making a video and uploading it would be so time consuming. I wish I had magical powers to just blink my eyes and make it happen by itself. If only I had about 10 more hours in a day to get everything done on my To-do list. I am sure many of you can relate to that, especially at this time of year.

Watch the video to see step by step instructions. I used the Star of Light framelit and the Fancy Frost designer paper for the front. The snowflake inside and the Surprise are from the Tin of Tags stamp set. You can find all of these products in the Stampin Up Holiday mini.  If you would like to purchase the products shown here or any other Stampin Up products, just click on the shopping cart to the right.

Today I am sharing the projects I am doing in my class tomorrow. We are making a gorgeous framed art piece, a caramel corn gift bag and clear treat box filled with candy. Cost of the class is $20 and includes all of your supplies including the frame. The framed art uses the Sheltering Tree stamp set and sponging. I also used the copper foil as a background piece.
