What do you do with a Hat Pin?

Did you see the Hat Pins in the Occasions Mini Catalog on page 18?? Here is a creative use of the Hat Pin by my demonstrator friend Tami Waddell. She laced the pin through ribbon and lace! So pretty!

The card is the lovely Designer Cuts that comes with Blushing Bride Envelopes! Just back the die cut shape with any cardstock or Designer Series Paper to have a speedy card! The package contains 8 cards, in two designs. Give them a try!

My Type

This card was a favorite at my recent Valentine class. Everyone loved the old typewriter and had a story tell about pre-computer days! This creation would be great to give to a guy. I love the First Edition Designer Series background paper that features the "olde type." Its a perfect match for the stamp set "You're My Type."


The Red Glimmer Paper punched with the Heart to Heart Punch adds glitz. I've just returned from Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in San Antonio so keep stopping by for my "BEST of SWAPS!"

Fashionable Hearts

I cased this 3X6"card idea from Carrie Gaskin because it is very unique! It features the NEW "Fashionable Hearts" Embosslits Die for the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

I used the embosslit with Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Grey. I popped out the hearts and mixed the colors, then re-inserted the images into the coordinating hole. This is sooo chic! Give it a try!


This is a Valentine made in my recent class using "P.S. I Love You" stamp set of 15 images. I love the colors of Basic Grey and Blushing Bride! All products are from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

I love all the textures: satiny pleated ribbon, shiny Rhinestones, metallic Heart trinket, and Fashionable Hearts embossed with the MUST HAVE Big Shot Die Cutting Machine! Time to start your Valentines!

Coming in January...

Beginning Jan. 4, 2012 you can order this unique stamp set of 7 called "You're Just My Type." I have heat embossed "ye olde typewriter" in black and created a masculine Valentine. No fu-fu for the guys, but definitely RED for Valentines Day.

The Trinket says, "love," and comes packaged with assorted hearts. It contains jump rings and lobster claw closures so I can snap these cuties onto my Simply Adorned necklace or bracket! The Occasions Mini Catalog begins Jan. 4th and it's FULL of cool new TOYS!!
