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
Happy Monday! And for those of you losing track of days while in quarantine or working from home or home schooling, it is definitely Monday. I checked the calendar on my phone. The Playful Pets Suite is perfect for animal lovers. What I love about this stamp set is that it caters to both dog lovers and cat lovers. And let's talk about the awesome pattern paper for a moment. There are several sheets of a variety of cats and several sheets of a … [Read more...] about Playful Pets Suite
Before I get too deep into the Holiday Catalog, I have one more card to share from the Blossoms in Bloom Bundle. So far, I've really shared just the stamp set for this bundle. Today, I'm sharing the fabulous coordinating dies for this stamp set. The dies can be used separately from the stamp set or layer over the stop of the stamp. For this card, I just used the two die layers and not the stamp set. The base die has wider borders and the top … [Read more...] about Blossoms In Bloom-Those Dies!
In June, I was lucky to have a couple customers that made more than one purchase. Today's card is the second version of my Customer Thank You cards. This time I'm using the individual flower dies from the Blossoms In Bloom bundle. The large label die is from the Hippo & Friends die set. This die set is a really good one with three different styles of labels in three different sizes each. Plus it also has the dies for the hippo, unicorn … [Read more...] about Round Two Thank You’s
I just can't get enough of pretty flowers and the Blossoms In Bloom Bundle does not disappoint. One of the great things about the stamp set is that all the various pieces are all separate. This makes it so much easier to get the right ink colors on the right pieces. The yellow flowers are all on one giant stamp. The flower centers, leaves, and small pink flowers are all individual stamps. This is the card that I sent out to those customers … [Read more...] about Blossoms In Bloom
I've had a number of messages about how I made the Mini Album I shared a few weeks ago. This type of chipboard mini album is actually pretty easy to put together. Once you've figured out the mechanics of one album, you can make this in any size and shape you want. For this album, I used two 6x6" chipboard pieces and a 1x6" chipboard piece for the center spine. You'll need four pieces of card stock cut to 6x6" and one piece cut to 2x6". The … [Read more...] about Make Your Own Mini Album
Cocktails! Today's card is another card for the over 21 crowd. My son saw this one and asked who I'd give a card like this too. I'm sure I have a couple girlfriends who would laugh at this one. This card uses the coordinating dies for the Nothing's Better Than stamp set. I love the different words in the die set and the combinations you can make. I used the foam adhesive sheets on the word cocktails again. I love the way it looks … [Read more...] about Love You More Than…
