Celebrate Make-and -Take

Pin It!
Half Full is a fun stamp set.  It is featured in the Holiday catalog and certainly makes fun Christmas cards, but can be used for birthday cards or other occasions.  This card was designed by fellow demonstrator Mary Ellen Stites and was one of the make and takes at a recent demonstrator meeting I attended.  It really pairs well with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, don't you think?

Good Tidings Of Great Joy

Pin It!
I wasn't going to buy this stamp set.  Really I wasn't.  Then I saw some cards made with the Good Tidings stamp set and it now lives at my house.  As soon as it came I started playing with it.  I needed a swap card for a demonstrator meeting this past weekend so came up with this design.

Halloween Treat Boxes

Pin It!
Every holiday I like to make my 8 grandchildren a little handmade treat, so for Halloween I made these pocket treat boxes using the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies. The size is perfect to hold 3 pieces of Halloween candy.  

I posted on You tube with a few more ideas using the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies. Click on the link below.

Thank You

Pin It!

Thank you so much for all of the cards my mother received for her 90th Birthday.  She was so excited and loved everyone of them. As of right now, she has received over 100 cards!

We did have a full house this weekend with all the kids and grandchildren! On Sunday we had her 90th party at Magdaleno Ristorante, its a wonderful little restaurant in Wyandotte. A good time was had by all!

Giving Thanks

Pin It!
Let's get away from Birthday cards for a bit.  I absolutely love the Painted Harvest Suite in the Holiday catalog.  The DSP works well with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and Framelit Dies from the Annual Catalog. I decided a 5" x 5" card worked best.  I embossed the Touches of Nature Elements in copper to tie in the copper leaf.  I really like how this card turned out.
