Can I tell you how much I love making super quick and easy cards? Today's Five Minute card was inspired by one I found on Stampin Up's website. I can't remember the name of the person who shared her cute sample but I loved how she made flowers by combining the scribbled circle from one set with flower petals from another set. In fact, these cards are so quick to make, I've now made about a dozen of these. Plus they are flat which is perfect for … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Last week I showed you the Precision Base Plate and in that Post, I mentioned another tool called the Big Shot Die Brush. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about this tool since I mentioned it last week and said that you use it in conjunction with the Precision Base Plate. The Big Shot Die Brush was just released in the current Occasions Catalog. The price for the brush is $11 (a little less if you're a Stampin Up … [Read more...] about Work It Wednesday – Big Shot Die Brush
Recently, one of the employees at Stampin Up posted on the Stampin Up blog that she was disappointed in herself that she hadn't mailed out Christmas cards last year. And now with Facebook, the number of actual birthday cards being mailed out by people has decreased (you can read her post here). So she decided she would "bring birthdays back". In other words, she is mailing out cards to everyone that asks her for one. Her current list has passed … [Read more...] about #Imbringingbirthdaysback
Starting this Friday, I'll be featuring cards that can be made in FIVE minutes. Yep! You read that correct: five minute cards. How awesome is that! Here is the very first one: I'm serious, you can totally make this card in under five minutes. Since I already had the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper out, I decided to use that Product Suite again. Simply cut the pattern paper into a 4"x5.25" piece and adhere to the Mossy Meadow card … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Do you remember a TV show from about 15 years ago that had two guys that did movie reviews? The two reviewers would watch a movie and then give their "thumbs up" telling you that you needed to see this movie or "thumbs down" meaning you'd probably want to pass on it. How awesome would that be if you had the same thing when you were considering new craft tools! Let's face it, some of these craft tools are expensive. And just how many do you really … [Read more...] about Work It Wednesday
The Botanical Blooms Product Suite is one of those bundles that I knew would be on my purchasing list when the Occasions Catalog started in January. I just can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to using it! Everything about the Suite says tropical vacation to me. And who doesn't want to go on a tropical vacation! You can always count on Stampin Up to do something unique. The Designer Series Paper was created so you could use the … [Read more...] about Aloha!
Yay! I am so excited that I finally got my act together and have my second Class In The Mail all ready to go! Hooray! Lately, I've seen a ton of shaker cards on Instagram. They are so cool! I've been making these for years in my scrapbooks and I kind of assumed most people knew how to do it. But, I recently had a friend ask me to show her how to make them so I thought this would be perfect for my second Class In The Mail. This Class will … [Read more...] about Class In The Mail Is Here!!
Years ago, when I first started working a “real” job after college, I worked in an office with the nicest group of ladies. We all got along so well! We took trips together, outings, dinners, weddings, babies, and supported each other through life’s ups and downs. Eventually one by one, we all left that Company but we made it a point to stay in touch with each other. And for more than a decade now, we still get together to have dinner once a … [Read more...] about So Lucky
