Happy Easter

I pray that your Easter is a blessed time with family and friends.  And I also appreciate the men and women who are working today, and taking care of our safety and medical needs.  My daughter and son-in-law are both working as nurses today, so I’m particularly mindful of those who make sacrifices on holidays. We made this special Ghirardelli treat holder at my club class last month.  The photos don’t do it justice.  I…

Easter Baskets

HAPPY EASTER!   I should have posted this idea a long time ago…….but maybe it will inspire someone “last minute”.  Or you can save it for next year.   We made these at our club class last month, and they turned out SO cute!  I found these chocolate carrots and large pastel eggs at Wal-Mart.  They were perfect for our spring Stampin’ Up! colors.  I pray that you and your family have a very special Easter weekend!…

Epic Celebrations Card

What a fun addition to my stamp collection!  This stamp set is so cute for the teenagers, and more masculine looking cards.  However, my little girl owns a few pair of converse in fun colors, so you can certainly make girl-y cards, too!  Pinterest is FULL of fun samples, and this was one that I found and copied.  We made this card at March’s stamp club.  If you’re looking for a group of women to…

Brusho Crystals — my new love!

Spring is right around the corner and the Texas weather is showing it!  I’ve failed miserably at updating my blog, and my website, and I feel like I apologize more than ever.  But one of these days, I hope to get back to consistent posting.  Things are calming down (dare I say that?) in our house, and I’m making creative time more of a priority.  It is my “therapy” and definitely cheaper than anything else! …

My first card of the new year!

Hello friends!  I’m alive and well………and survived the Derrick-Krone wedding!  It was gorgeous, but left us exhausted and broke, ha!  Don’t all weddings?  This is my second wedding in 18 months, so we have 2 down and 2 to go!  Life with girls is always fun and exciting (but exhausting) — did I mention that I am exhausted?  I titled this post “my first card of the new year” but I actually make about 30…

Painted Harvest Thankful Card

This is the third and final project we completed at my club class in September.  I just realized that I hadn’t posted it.  The original idea came from Jenny Hall (found on Pinterest).  I have thoroughly enjoyed the items that I’ve stamped using the Painted Harvest bundle.  This stamp set has received lots of love and attention from demonstrators around the world.  Every time you stamp it, it looks a little different, thanks to the…

Masculine Friend Card

Good masculine cards are hard to come by!  And when I saw this one that Connie made, I knew I wanted to CASE it.  Special thanks to Connie for always posting the greatest projects!  At first glance, you may just think this card is created with one piece of Stampin’ Up!’s awesome wood-grain paper…….but look again.  It is actually made with 1″ strips that are cut, sponged for shading, and then attached to cardstock on…

Halloween Matchbook Treats

It’s time to start thinking about some Halloween treats!  We made these simple matchbook treats at my Club Class last week, and I made a bunch more this weekend at a retreat.  My daughter is going to give them for class treats, and to all of the teachers/aides that help with her class.  I like to send a little something to the music, PE, computer teachers, etc. so that they feel a little love, too!…

Fancy Fold Card with Lovely Labels

This lovely Tri-fold Card was inspired by another Demonstrator, BJ Peters.  Details can be found HERE.  As always, I’m thankful for friends who share, and I always want to give credit where credit is due!   I love how wonderfully this displays our gorgeous DSP and the many different combinations!  And it goes together so quickly!   Here’s a look at the card when you stretch it all out!  The combinations are endless, but I…
