A few weeks ago, one of Stampin Up's artists posted a similar card to this one I'm sharing today. Melody has such a fun, creative style - it's no wonder she's a professional artist. I took her idea with the sweet monster hiding behind a wall and made my own card. This little guy is actually quite short. I stretched him out to better fit my card. To do this, I covered the bottom half of the stamp with a post-it and inked only the top and … [Read more...] about Creepin It Real
Before I share today's project, I just want to remind you that today is the last day of the Stampin Up pattern paper sale!Now for today's project... Today's card is a gate fold card design. This is what the card looks like closed.Then you open both sides at the middle. Notice that the label and frame are centered over the middle of the card above. But, when you open the card, you see that it's attached on just the one side. To make sure my … [Read more...] about Ghoulish Gate Fold
Til the end of the school year! Is it wrong to be counting down already? Don't get me wrong, I love the structure of the school year. But, the go-go-go schedule leaves me completely exhausted. I feel like I need a ribbon that says "I survived the first month of school's parent meetings, open house, team meetings, and the first fundraising for the year." Hmmm... that's a lot for one ribbon. I gotta give credit to those who do this year … [Read more...] about Only Eight More Months…

However, I knew I needed this "wicked" die cut for future scrapbooking purposes.My colorful background was made using the new Pigment Sprinkles. The new Sprinkles come in our Stampin Up … [Read more...] about Wicked!

So, I feel pretty good that I've held off this long sharing more Halloween projects. The stamp set Boo To You contains several delightfully spooky creatures.

That statement that you can learn something new everyday is true. I recently made a bunch of note cards for a family member to use and I used the stamp set To a Wild Rose. That got me thinking… what is a wild rose? Or is that just something they used to name the stamp set? Did you know there is actually class of roses called wild roses? Who knew? Wild roses differ from garden roses as they tend to be a tougher, low-maintenance plant adaptable to … [Read more...] about Wild Roses
First, thank you to everyone that didn’t mind that I took a day off work. Every now and then a break is much needed. Just like I promised on Monday, I’m back today with a simple and lovely card using the Magnolia Lane Suite. Actually, I have two different versions of this same card for you today. This is the first version of this card. Our pattern paper is just so pretty that I wanted to make it the focus on this card. I originally started with … [Read more...] about It’s a Two-For-One Today
