Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the States. It's a day to remember everything for which we are thankful. The basics are easy to remember... family, friends, and our health. But there is so much more to be thankful for like having a roof over our heads and food on our table. As you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal, take a moment to remember family and friends, near and far. And say a blessing for all the good in your life. As a … [Read more...] about Thankful…

What do you do when you can’t find just the right color of pattern paper? Well, you just make your own with your stamps! Making your own pattern paper is such a simple technique. And no two pieces of paper will be the exact same, which means your card is truly one of a kind. For this card, I started with one leaf and stamped it repeatedly across the card stock. Then the next leaf, and then the third leaf. The leaves are colored using Stampin … [Read more...] about Just DIY It!

On Friday I shared my September Customer Thank You card. You can see that card here. I had several customers that made more than one purchase during the month so I wanted to send them a different thank you card for the second order. This time I used the Come To Gather Suite of products. The background of this card is stamped in both the Delicata Gold and Copper stamp pads. The Delicata ink dries amazingly well and doesn't smear like some … [Read more...] about Second Round of Thank You’s
Once again, it’s my favorite time of the month… when I mail out my Customer Thank You cards to everyone that made a purchase the month prior. I love being able to tell my customers how much I appreciate them. This month I used the Harvest Hellos stamp set and used the apple to make caramel apples. To make these apples, stamp the apple stamp on your red card stock and punch it out. Then punch out a second apple in Mango Melody. I used a sponge to … [Read more...] about September Customer Thank You’s
It's still hot in SoCal, but we're starting to see cooler evenings, which is the true start of Fall here. Although, the weather still can be a bit unpredictable now. It's mostly high 80's during the day, but there is a definite chill in the night air. Our Fall pattern paper, Come To Gather has some unexpected Fall colors mixed in. One of the prettier papers in the pack is this lovely Pear Pizzazz pumpkin patterns. Green pumpkins are … [Read more...] about It’s Finally Fall
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…
