I love the products in the new Butterfly Bouquet Suite and couldn't wait to use them. My first project is a home decor piece. This is a 2x4" block of wood that's about 12" long. I actually got it at a local store and then painted it white. I used the Blushing Bride metallic ribbon with a bit of the vanilla lace trim tucked just under the edge. Then I added a strip of the Natural Wood paper. This paper looks just like real wood, but it is … [Read more...] about Butterfly Bouquet Part 2

Every now and then, I'll go out on a limb and make a masculine card. I really need to make more of them, but I can't help myself. I like pretty flowers and butterflies. So, that's what I make. Except for today! Today, I'm sharing the fabulous stamp set, Whiskey Business. This is a perfect stamp set for the men in your life, or even the girl who enjoys a nice glass of whiskey.

If you saw Monday's post and you felt slighted because you are not a dog person, then today's post is just for you. Today I'm sharing my Cat Sampler. It is similar to the Dog Sampler, but this one has all the goods for kitty lovers. And once again, I included the "s" for those that have more than one cat. Of course, if you have only one cat, you wouldn't use the "s". This sampler has already been super popular too. I'm currently taking … [Read more...] about Love My Cats
Okay, I really have only one dog, Frannie. But I know some people have more than one dog. And that got me to thinking, what do those people who have more than one dog do when they get a frame that has "I love my dog" on it? Do they just put a picture of their favorite dog it in? Do they not worry that it's missing an "s"? Anyway, that lead me to my next sampler... "Love My Dogs". For this sampler, I included the "s" so it works for those … [Read more...] about Love My Dogs
Our new Annual Catalog revealed our brand new die cut machine, the Stampin' Cut & Emboss, to be released at some point this year. It was available starting August 4th for Demonstrators and I've been test driving it for the last few weeks. So far, this looks like a great replacement to my old Big Shot machine. I loved that old machine, but after twelve years of very heavy duty use, it bit the dust a few months ago. I'm so excited to have a … [Read more...] about Out With The Old and In With The New
