Because I Care...

Wow it's been a while. I apologize for not posting but if you had to choose between stamping and camping with your grandson, which would you choose LOL?

I actually took some stamping supplies with me camping, but didn't get a chance to use them. But here's a card a made a while back and I just got around to taking pictures of it.

It's made with the hostess stamp set "Because I care" that is in the new Stampin' Up catalog. I love this image and it works great with the Poppin' Pastel technique.

I do have a few posts scheduled over the next few days, but next week is the start of VBS so I will be very busy and won't have any time to stamp for a while. Don't give up on me though, I have a huge order that I'm putting in on August 1st and will have all sorts of things to share with you after VBS.

Thanks for looking,

Chalked Background

Isn't this the coolest background? I got my Stampin' Up Pastels (another name for their chalks) out here while back and played with them all evening. I hadn't used them for quite a while, as a matter of fact I didn't even update my chalks when we had the last color change. But the new chalks are definitely on the top of my list now.

Mars to Earth...

Greetings Earthlings! Isn't this the cutest card (I can say that because I cased it). Yes, this is a copy, and I didn't get the original creator's name I am sorry.

My daughter needed a card for her VBS class to sign. All the classes were signing and sending cards to a young boy who has cancer. I didn't want to send the typical "Praying for You" card (although we are). I wanted something that would bring a smile to his face and I hope this card does.

A Honey of a Card...

I saw these cute cards on Stampin' Connection (a website just for Stampin' Up Demonstrators). The demonstrator who designed them had tutorials for sale with the templates, and while I'm sure people put a lot of time into making their tutorials and I am sure they are well worth the money, I have to admit - I'm Cheap! I don't like paying for tutorials because I usually only make a project once or twice, then I move on to something else.

So I decided I would just make my own template for this card and I did. It took a little while to get the pot sketched out and looking good, but I was happy with the end result. This is just basically a pocket card shaped like a honey pot.

You just pull the lid off the honey pot and stamp or write a message on the insert. The original design had punch art bees on it, but I thought this stamp set worked great with this card.

Thanks for looking,

ps - if you would like to have access to the Stampin' Connection Website, all you have to do is sign up as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator and I would be happy to help you do that, just send me an email.

Sweet Pea Chalkboard

I'm sorry I didn't get my project posted yesterday. Several things came up including my grandsons VBS program and you know that comes first.

But here it is now. This is actually a chalkboard. It is made with Stampin' Up's Chalkboard Vinyl. I also used some of the now retired Sweet Pea Designer Paper and embellishments. You could put a magnet on the back and then hang it on your fridge or you could just punch some holes at the top and add some ribbon and hang it by that.

There were really easy and quick to make and I think they would make cute, inexpensive gifts.

New Catalog is Active

I'm sorry to be posting this so late, but I spent the day with my husband and daughter. We had College Orientation today for my daughter and that seemed just a little bit more important than the new catalog.

I do have a few catalogs here and I have more on the way, so if you would like a catalog just send me an email. For those of you who placed a $50 order online with me this month, thank you and I think I have delivered all of your catalogs. But if someone didn't get one, please let me know.

If you can't wait until you get a catalog in your hands, then you can scroll down on the left side of this blog and there is a picture of the new catalog, just click on it and it will download a pdf file of the new catalog.

I have some new projects that I hope to show you starting tomorrow if all goes well. I'm a little behind things here at home right now so I'm trying to get caught up.

If anyone would like to host a workshop and receive their catalog free, just give me a call or send me an email.
