Some of My Latest Creations

Hey everyone,

Here are some projects that I recently did in a class this month. I have a little bit of old and a little bit of new products.

The designer paper in the first card (cupcakes and carousels), the doilies, and the dapper denim ribbon are all going, but the rest is staying. I love the dragonfly dreams set. It is one of my new favorites.  

And then of course there is one of my all time favorites (Wild About Flowers). Who wouldn’t be wild about this stamp set?? I used the Timeless Textures set for the background of the 2nd card. (another one of my favorites!!). A girl can never have too many favorite stamp sets, can she?

And the last card used the brand new Eastern Palace suite. I LOOOOVE this new bundle. The framelits are amazing. Stampin Up really did a great job on this one! You can make about 40 different designs with just a few framelits. 

The middle project is actually one of our petite cafe bags which is also retiring (sad face). I love to use these bags for gifts to give to everyone! They are the perfect size to fill with candy, cookies, treats, or really just about anything. You can basically take any card idea and just change the measurements slightly to make the front piece for your bag.

I stocked up on these before they are gone for good. Oh, I just remembered this cute little butterfly punch is also retiring! (another sad face). I use this all the time too! I think I will just have to keep it forever. Usually I get rid of all my retiring things to make room for more new stuff but there are a few things I just can’t part with. 


Here is a side view of the bag so you can see how big it is. 

I hope you enjoyed these projects. Many of these items are still available but only for a few more days!! This catalog expires on Wed!!!

Have a great weekend!!

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.

Gift for a Friend!

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the long absence. I am going to try to start posting again regularly. Here is a gift I made for my friend Melissa’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. I used the new Picture Perfect and Timeless Textures sets from the Occasions mini catalogs. The textured stamps make great backgrounds. I cased this idea from someone on pinterest but I can’t remember who it was. If anyone knows, please tell me so I can give that person credit. I bought this frame from the dollar general and it already had a picture in it. I ripped it out and redid the whole thing. It took a lot longer than I thought but I loved how it turned out. Sorry for the mess in the background. I forgot to crop it before I added my watermark on there.

April Stamp Camp!

Today in Chesapeake, it was so gorgeous outside, I decided that I had to postpone my stamping plans to go lay out in the sun. It felt so good but now I am burnt to a crisp! It will be tan in a couple days but right now my skin is sizzling.  My daughter Lindsey laid out with me and she just turned brown… isn't fair. I meant to take some pictures of her out there but I forgot. I am sure we will have many more days like this.

Anyway, I finally got back to stamping and finished my projects for this month's stamp camp. This month I am featuring the Sneak Peek Special…..the Paisley petals designer papers and the four frames stamp set that will be in our upcoming Idea Book and Catalog.

This first picture is of the folder that the cards all go in….isn't it pretty?? This paper is just GORGEOUS!



This next one is the inside of the folder. I have 2 cards on either side. I will stick some envelopes in there too.



Here is the folder (top left) and the 4 cards we are making. If you are local to the Chesapeake/ Va Beach/ Norfolk area, and would like to come to this or any other class, please email me! If you click on my calendar at the top of the page, you can see when all of the classes are offered. Or, if you and some friends would like a private class of your own, that would be great too! Cost of this class is $20 or if you would like to purchase the whole set already completed, it is $25. If you are out of town and would like this class set, add an additional $5 for shipping. All complete sets for this class will be ready for pick up or shipping at the end of the month.

February Stamp Camp projects

Well, I just finished watching the movie Unstoppable with Denzel Washington about the runaway train in Pennsylvania…..WOW! What a great movie. The problem is it is 11:00pm and I am so stressed out from watching it that it might be a while before I can get to sleep. It is a hang on to the edge of your seat movie. I am surprised I have any fingernails left. I highly recommend it. It is based on a true story too.  So, I decided that maybe if I worked on my blog for a little while it might relax me. Here are a few projects I have been working on lately.




This past weekend I had my February Stamp Camp and we made this cute box purse and set of 4 cards.  For most of the projects I used the Nature Walk set from the Occasions mini along with the Botanical Gazette designer paper also in the Occasions mini.





Here is a close up of the front of the box. I used the 2 1/2 in circle punch and the 2 3/8 scallop circle punch for these.





Here is a pic of all the cards and the box. All of the cards except for one are made with the Nature Walk set and the one with the butterfly on the front is made with the Bliss set which you can get for free from the Sale-a-bration mini with a $50 purchase. I will post more pics of the individual cards this week.

Classes are Sunday the 21st at 1pm or 3:30 and Tuesday the 23rd at 10am or 7pm. Cost of the class is $25 and includes all supplies, refreshments and door prizes. We will be making 5 projects in all….a notepad holder made from our DVD cases, a gift card holder, a candy bar,  a gift bag and a cone ornament ( there are 2 designs shown but each class will make 1 of these). I will show more pics of these items (close up) in the next several days.  If you can't make it to class, you can get a bag of the pre-cut and scored supplies to make them at home but you must have the stamps, punches and adhesive to complete them. Or, I can complete all 5 projects for you for $30 total.


Cute Little Gifts….

These cute little treats are so easy to make. You can whip out a ton of them in no time. I used the Candy Wrapper Die (from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini) in the Big Shot to cut them all out for me. Then I just added a little bit of Deck the Halls Designer paper  (also in the holiday mini) and the label on the front (from Winter Post) . I showed both versions of this treat box. You can have it open on both ends or glue one end shut to give it a totally different look. I did these with my stamp clubs last month and my customers loved them.
