Cheers to You!

Cheers to you


I had to post the front of this card that I made for one of the kits for StampFest. This has a really cute pop-up element inside.

I have been wanting to do a card using this set and the Pink Flamingo DSP for quite some time. I love the way it turned out. The umbrella is a piece of DSP folded accordian style with a bead at the top to cover the exposed edge.

While you still have time……

Check out the Last Chance list! I will feature a few of my favorites that are going away, over the next couple of weeks. Don’t forget that you can order your new catalog for only $5 with the purchase of any retiring set through June 30th.

This is the front of the birthday cake pop up card from one of my StampFest kits. I had been wanting this set for some time and finally got it a couple of months ago. I am glad I did, because it ended up on the Last Chance list! This is one of those sets that earns a permanent spot in my stamp library. It is great for cards and scrapbbook pages. It will work for Christmas and other inspirational events as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Autumn Days

Autumn Days


 Another sneak peek from the New Catalog! Your copy should be arriving in a little over a week.

This is the Autumn Days set. Another of the must haves for me. I love it for a couple of reasons. It is the silhouette style and those make for quick and striking cards. I also love this one because it will be great not only for masculine cards, but fall cards and pages as well as all those scrapbook pages for my home.  We live out in the sticks so this is perfect.

The background looks difficult but it is just masking and sponging. I stamped the pheasants on Ruby Red Card stock with craft ink.

Stampin’ Stuff

Very Vanilla,Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip card stocks

Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and More Mustard  Classic inks and Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla Craft Ink.

The ribbon is from last years Holiday mini and is my fave for masculine cards. The mask was made using our largest circle punch.








New Catalog Sneak Peek

Wings of FriendshipTime is running out on ordering items from the current catalog and Mini Catalog!

Be sure to check out the post below with the Last Chance, Set and Accessories lists. We have until June 30th to order sets, and accessories are only available until supplies run out. If you need something let me know right away.

Here is another card using the new Hostess set, Wings of Friendship. You will be seeing a lot of this one, because I love it! I don’t have my new In Colors yet, so I thought I would say goodbye to our retiring In colors with this card. I do love these colors. They are Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Kiwi Kiss. I will miss the Kiwi Kiss Satin ribbon, too!

I still have kits to add for Stampfest, so keep watching for updates. If you are considering this event and have not emailed me yet, please let me know. We have filled the smaller room and I need to hold the larger room, if more people are interested in attending.

Watch for another Sneak Peek tomorrow!










Scrapbook Kit #2

Sisters page

Another Scrapbook Kit for our StampFest. Sorry about the bad picture, my camera is having focus issues.

This kit features a new hostess set from the new catalog called Wings of Friendship. I love it! I love all the hostess sets from this catalog. I want them all!

This kit is $10 if you attend Stampfest. It also features the Bella Bleu paper, copper hardware and chipboard letters. I will be offering a multiple kit discount. Keep watching for more kit offerings.

Scrapbook Kit for StampFest!

Playful Petals Scrap Kit

Here is one of the Scrapbook Kits that will be available for Summer StampFest!

Each Scrapbook kit contains the following:

2 page spread that is precut and ready to stamp and assemble.

Color picture, scrap map and written instructions for completing the project.

Written instructions include measurements for cropping and printing photos.

All embellishments for creating both pages.

At StampFest, I will have all the tools, stamps and pads available to finish this project. I will send you cropping measurements so you can have photos ready to go, or you can cut the mats to fit your photos.

These kits come pre-cut except for images that need to be stamped and cut out. The title can be changed to anything you like. Some kits, like this one will have an option to receive an extra page of DSP  from which you can cut the images instead of stamping and coloring. This kit is $8.50 if you attend StampFest. $9.50 if you would like to cut your images from DSP.


Don’t Forget Stamp Camp this Thursday!!
