Couldn’t Resist

We had Stamp Camp last night.  A lovely group of ladies for sure!  Here’s a sample of the Make & Take we made.  I was totally inspired by Dawn Griffith and her fantastic daily videos on YouTube.  She’s not only a great stamper, she’s also quite funny!  Hope you enjoy!


In my sample I used the following:

Cardstock:  Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Ski Slope Designer Paper

Ink:  Chocolate Chip

Stamps:  Crazy for Cupcakes

Accessories:  Silver Brads, Paper Scorer, Key Tag Punch,  Scallop Circle Punch, Crafters Tool Kit

Christmas 2008 Stamp-a-Stack

It’s that time of year again.  Can you believe it???  Just a little over a month till Christmas.  I’ve got some great cards planned for this year for my annual Christmas Stamp-a-Stack.  I’m sure you’ll agree.  The cost is $15 for 12 cards or $30 for 24.  I will cut and prepare all the items you need to stamp and put them together!  It couldn’t get any easier!  You will also get envelopes and instructions for each of  your cards.  Here’s a sampling of the cards that you’ll create.

"Felt" Like Christmas

OMG… i can’t believe it!!!  i made a card… all by myself.

it has been way too long since i’ve posted anything of note. i just haven’t been feeling that creative for way too many months. i bought a ton of supplies when the new catalog came out and was feeling quite guilty for spending so much and not using any of the supplies. i forced myself to use some of the items that i had just gotten and some things that i hadn’t used in a long time. here’s what i came up with for my personal challenge! i hope you enjoy it.

here are the supplies i used for this card:

  • stamp sets:  many merry messages
  • cardstock:  chocolate chip, riding hood red, baja breeze, whisper white
  • ink:  riding hood red
  • accessories: felt flurries, rhinestone brads fire circles, ribbon originals alpine, big shot, cuttlebug embossing folder, crafters toolkit
