Blueberry Crisp Quilt card

This is a super easy card to make and you can use any designer paper pack (I used Blueberry Crisp from Stampin Up). Just pick at least 4 different sheets, punch out 3 squares (1 1/4 inch) from each sheet.  Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5 x 3 3/4 and glue all 12 squares to this piece using  a random pattern but try not to get the same ones next to each other. Then run this piece through the Big shot using the top note die (place paper face down). After you run it through using the top note die, then choose any embossing folder you want and run it through again using the embossing folder. It will create this neat quilted look. It is a great way to use up random pieces of your designer packs that you might have left over.


I used the paper daisies and antique brads to embellish mine. You can also see the embossed pattern if you look really close.

A Couple of My Favorite Things….

Wow! We are actually having a white Christmas here in VA on the east coast for the first time I can ever remember. We rarely even get snow here but on Christmas, we are usually still in the 50's. THis year has been super cold so far and this is the 3rd snowstorm for us! I think that is a record! It sure is pretty though.

I got many hand stamped Christmas cards from my friends and customers that I LOVED but this is one of my favorites. It was hard to choose because there were so many awesome ones and I am saving them all! This one was made by one of my customers named Chris. I think it turned out just great.



I also got several gifts that were handmade and this was one of my favorites. My good friend Sam made this one. She handmade the star ornament. I have no idea how she did it but it looks like a lot of work. She also made a little cookie cutter with fudge to go along with it. I just thought it was so creative and delicious at the same time! Thanks to everyone who sent me a card or gift. They were all loved and appreciated.  I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. Mine was great but I sure need to go on a diet immediately! I have one more apple pie to make for a special friend tomorrow and that is the end of my holiday baking. I think I gained 10 pounds just looking at food this week.

THis is a close up of the ornament. It is made out of paper but it totally does not look or feel like it.


Sweet Pea Quilt Card

Here is a swap card that one of my fabulous downline ( Niccole Marshall)  made for our meeting the other night. She used the Sweet Pea slab of designer papers in the Occasions mini catalog to make this one. If you haven't purchased it yet, you are really missing out. It is a huge pack of designer paper at a great deal! I have made a ton of cards already and still have a ton of paper left.  The quilt cards are perfect for these papers because so many of them coordinate together. Thanks Niccole for sharing a great card.
