Enjoy the little things!

Today’s cards are from our monthly Stampin’ Up! publication and the “A La Card” Template.  This monthly feature gives me a sample template that will work nicely for a variety of images and is quick and easy to demonstrate for a workshop.  I love this feature (among many others!) because it is very easy to adapt to whatever stamp sets I have on hand even if I don’t have the exact images used in the…

Good morning!  Sorry I didn’t post yesterday…….I took the day off!  Just from blogging…….I did not take the day off from laundry, taxi service, or chef — just to name a few of my daily tasks!  🙂 I also mananged to find a little time for some scrapbooking this afternoon with my girlfriend Tisha (listening to Josh Groban and Ryan Dan while we worked).  Could it get any better???   Then tonight I decided to finish…

Punched Purse Card

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today………this card was made by Maria.  Maria’s customers said it was their “all time favorite card” from ALL her Stamp-A-Stack classes (and let me assure you she has had alot of classes!).  I am planning a “variation” of this card sometime soon at one of my classes.  It is so incredibly easy with our punches and our Designer Series Papers………2 squares, 2 circles, add a ribbon handle, add a…

We’re home!

Hello friends and family!  We made it home today and things are still the same around here!  The house didn’t fall down and the kids are still picking on each other……some things just never change, do they???  Our precious little foster baby survived a week with another caregiver (one of my dear friends who is also a foster mom) and didn’t seem to mind us being gone at all – what a blessing!  He is…

Monogram Card

Have you noticed the trend to have something personalized?  We all want something “special” with our initial, or our name.   Monogrammed gifts are well-received and these cards are no exception.  This card was given to me last year at our annual Stampin’ Up! Convention by one of my fellow demonstrators named Vickie Beck.   I loved the look, the simplicity, and my initial!  You see, rarely would I take time to make something for ME……..I always…

Powerful Punches

     Good morning!  Today’s cards are taken from Stampin’ Success — the monthly publication for demonstrators.  Stampin’ Up! provides many wonderful resources for its demonstrators so we can easily plan new projects and have more time for stamping!  These cards are from a monthly feature called “Ala Card” where we take a basic template and create different cards.  Isn’t it amazing that different colors and images will create such a different feel……..but it really is…
