DSP Stack


I love to play with patterned papers! The Designer Series Paper STACKS are sooo affordable and inspirational! This is the TRIM THE TREE Designer Series Paper Stack from the new HOLIDAY Catalog. Such FUN winter designs!!


I used the "postage stamp" technique to display cute coordinating papers! The Punches are 1" Square and Postage Stamp Punch. To get a realistic postage look, mount the punched out images so they touch.

For All Things


It's just around the corner...AUTUMN! Here is a brand new stamp set called, "For All Things," from the 2014 HOLIDAY Catalog! I used the "postage stamp technique" with a variety of FALL colors.


If you don't have the  Envelope Punch Board, you NEED it! It "completes" the presentation. Your card becomes EXTRA special when the envelope coordinates! You can create 66 different sizes of envelopes!

My Digital Studio Journals


I custom designed a JOURNAL for each of our daughters using My Digital Studio! They were fast and fun and make a quick, inexpense gift!!


You can add any little message on the back cover! These journals are still "in plastic."


This is a journal I designed for myself. The inside is blank ruled pages on both sides. The cover is soft, but coated so it stays clean. WHO could you give these to: teacher, Moms, students, someone who has GOALS to track, someone who loves to write stories, someone who keeps diaries, kids learning to print, someone who needs a holiday or wedding organizer, ETC!!

Flamingo Lingo


This stamp set, Flamingo Lingo, is Stampin' Up!'s charity set. Three dollars of each set purchased goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charity! I recently had a Charity Class with each attendee receiving this set and making four cards. This is Calypso Coral  cardstock and ink.


To achieve the realistic black beak tip: ink up the bird with Calypso Coral ink, then use a water-based black marker to color right onto the rubber, then print. EASY!

Holiday Peek


This unique stamp set (3 images) called, SEASONALLY SCATTERED, will be available in the Holiday Catalog beginning August 28, 2014 at noon Mountain Time! I love the way it looks like I masked the letters, BUT DIDN'T!!


I inked the stamp with Pistachio Pudding ink and then added Garden Green marker over the letters before I went to Very Vanilla Cardstock. It gives a faux watercolor look with ONE quick print!


Inside I stamped the edge of the image for interest!


For a "touch of fall," I changed the colors: Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze. This card has a totally different feel.


Close up you can see all the wonderful viney details! Put SEASONALLY SCATTERED on your Wish List!

PS: WHY is the Holiday Catalog coming out on a weird date like Thursday, the 28th?? So it's up and running BEFORE Labor Day Weekend when you'll be sitting in your chaise, sipping Raspberry Lemonade, and making your Holiday Order!! Order here, 24/7 from your chaise!! Just click that BLUE "shop & order" banner at the top right!
