Swap Cards

These are a few of the lovely swap cards I received at 2017 OnStage this month. Not everyone attached their name, so I'm not able to give credit.


This card spoke to my Midwest "roots!" Designed by Keri Priest of MO.


This cute little hedgehog is another use for the "sunflower" image in the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.


Lovely fast & easy Birthday card on Watercolor Paper.


 Eclipse format using Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set, designed by Delores Schlabach from IN.


Very relaxing card made with the versatile Colorful Seasons Bundle.


Metallic shadowed numbers for New Year's Celebration!

I love to swap because there are so many talented stampers in the world!

If you are local to me in SW Florida, I have one spot to fill for my Dec. 2nd Intro to Blends Class. Email me as soon as possible at [email protected]

Pinwheel Table Favors


I just finished a pile of Pinwheel Table Favors for Thanksgiving at my cousin's home! Thanks to Shari Wicks, my friend and fellow Team member, for sharing this quick and adorable idea with me. Shari saw this on YouTube at:


I used the lovely Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper to create my Pinwheel Favors.

I wish you a WONDERFUL Thanksgivings with your loved ones. Be Grateful!! I sure am!!

Acetate Card Box Trick

Acetate card boxes $6.50

Did you miss these handy clear Acetate Card Boxes #144628 in the Holiday Catalog, pg. 13? They are indispensable for giving cards as gifts! And only 65 cent per box! 


Here is a simple trick to step up an acetate box-


With the box flat, insert one side of an embossing folder and line up the folder with the front panel of the box. Run it thru the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, adjusting for thickness. My favorite embossing folder is Hexagons #143231 because it gives STUNNING results!


Look at the SPARKLE!! WOW!! So simple and inexpensive!! I have stocked up on these Acetate Boxes for lots of future occasions! You should, too. Try this!

Crafting Forever by Stampin' Up!

2017 OnStage header

Today, I'm flying over the Rocky Mountains to Salt Lake City, Utah for Stampin' Up! OnStage!! (That's a fancy name for convention.) I'll be thrilled to see my North Star Stamper Team members who can attend!! It's three days of swapping, gabbing, and learning all things Stampin' Up! YAY!!


I've been practicing with the NEW BLENDS, alcohol markers! Wow, they make me feel like an artist which I'm NOT!! But I believe we can all "LEARN" tools/techniques and improve our skills! This is FUN learning!


The "pot" is colored with the Light Crumb Cake BLENDS. 


This is just the perfect card to send to any crafty friend! All products are available in my online store HERE. TRY BLENDS!!!

Remarkable You


When you need a sympathy card, you need it fast. Here is an elegant idea that is quick, too!


This stamp set is Remarkable You, paired with the sentiments from Thoughts & Prayers.


A quick touch of color with the Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers is all you need. I love the 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon! Try it!
