When you need an elegant card, the Stitched Lace background die is the perfect choice. This one die is big enough to cover an entire card front at 5-7/8" x 4-5/16". It is so pretty that it hardly needs anything else on the card. For today's card, I wanted to keep the focus on that amazing Stitched Lace. So gorgeous! When using this die, I highly recommend the die brush to go with it. Our new die brush fastens into the top of the Take … [Read more...] about Our Dies Are So Pretty
Annual Catalog & Idea Book
One of the most unique products in the new Annual Catalog is the Pressed Petals Washi Tape. This washi tape is actually a roll of flower petals. These are really kind of cool. You can peel off as many petals as you need to make your flower. I found the best way to work with these is to arrange them on a small piece of card stock. I used a 1/2" circle punch to make my circle. Once you've added the petals to your circle, add a bit of baby … [Read more...] about Pressed Petals

Yes, I do realize I'm a day late. But, I couldn't show off my Father's Day card before the recipient received it. The Come Sail Away Suite is the perfect set for masculine cards. For today's card, I used our brand new Watercolor paper. I do have to say that I love our brand new watercolor paper. The color goes on so nicely. If you haven't tried watercoloring because you think it's hard, it's really not. I find that if I give the paper a light … [Read more...] about Happy Father’s Day!
Two years ago, when the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating punch were released, I thought it would be so nice if we had daisies in different sizes. Well, guess what? Stampin Up read my mind!

Using the two daisy punches together allows you to create a lovely daisy flower on your card. The flower on today's card has … [Read more...] about Daisy Lane

Happy Monday! We are now down to the very last week of school. Four more half days, and my daughter is done with her Junior year of high school. My son finished his first year of college several weeks ago. Hooray! I need a vacation. As we crawl towards Summer Break, my mind fills with thoughts of vacation and sailing away. Funny story, I love the romantic notion of sailing away, but I get terribly seasick. I can't even watch boats bob in the … [Read more...] about Come Sail Away…
Happy Friday! We are so close to finishing up the school year that I can already picture myself sleeping in and lounging around the house all day. Ha! I wish. That's what my teenagers will be doing. Instead, I'll be at work all day... enjoying all the free air conditioning I can handle. Actually, I do love the summer break. No tests, no homework, no projects. I thought that last physics project was going to do us in. Have you heard of … [Read more...] about Almost Summer
