What a surprise...

I wasn't expecting my Stampin up box today, but it's here!! WOOHOO. I just ordered "my digital studio". I'm so excited to see how it works. I now have in my hot little hands the extra stamp set that I ordered, (accidently). If anyone is interested I'd love to pass a deal onto you. If not, I might sell it on KSL or just exchange it. Do let me know asap if your interested.


I just put in another order to fulfill my Stampin addiction. It's free shipping right now, I couldn't resist. However, I didn't realize that I ordered the exact same stamp set twice! Twice on the same order. So, would anybody like to buy it? It's currently in the catalog for $16.95. It's the Oval all set. (p. 128). I am willing to sell it for $17.00 even. That means you don't pay tax, or S&H. That's a better deal than I got! You save, $8.00. So, let me know if your interested! I'm gonna put it on KSL soon, so let me know.

I think I finally got it...

I have been racking my brain, trying to get my idea of how I'd like my scrap book page down on paper. I think I finally got it. I had to draw it out and really plan it out. (For some obnoxious reason, that's just how my mind works.) I created some pockets that hold a journaling area and a picture area. I really like that idea. I used some regular sized envelopes, sealed them shut, then cut them into the size I wanted and walla, there's my pocket. I used the perfect polka dots folder to add some texture to the envelope. On the other page I used the top note die cut to create a pocket. I embossed that with the Petals a plenty folder. (I don't know what I would do without my big shot!) I used the ornament punch and Christmas paper to do the ornaments. Really simple. I used the fundamental phrases punch set for the words at the bottom. My color scheme is, real red, and Old olive. I also used the define your life stamp set. Ir says, "happy: cheerful; tickled pink; content. Simple pleasure; together. A feeling of giddiness or joy." I love that stamp set. It's got 28 different words and definitions. You can use it on everything! I used the word window punch, the scallop oval punch, and the season of Joy punch set. I think I really like how it turned out. Let me know what you think!!

Christmas scrap book page.

I LOVE scrap booking, but I have a hard time putting my ideas down the way I see them in my head. This is a scrap book page I made for one of my card swap groups. I used the delightful decorations stamp set, the ornament punch, and the star punch. I embossed the starts using silver embossing powder and versa mark. The Christmas paper is from a pack I got for free at convention. I'm not sure I like the look of the page, but let me know what you think. Thanks!!

Christmas is fast approaching. Only 37 days left until Christmas morning! This year I am trying to put together a bunch of Christmas cards to send out. I like the idea of a home made card. It's just so much more personal, and it takes so much more effort. Here's a few more cards that I have made.

Using the ornament punch

A few day's ago, I posted some Christmas cards using Stampin Ups new Ornament punch. I decided to post today a card I made for a friends b'day using the same punch just to show how diverse it is. You don't' just have to save it for Christmas. I LOVE things you can use in multiple ways!!

I think I've got it...

I have been playing around in my craft room for awhile now. I was trying to get it set up into a nice functioning area, it had to be organized and things easily accessible. I think I have finally got it done! Compared to the first pictures I took to now, I think it's a huge difference. The first pictures you can see on my first posts. What do ya think?

Halloween, how did I forget?

I really can't believe that I forgot to post my halloween cards on here. DAH!! Anyhow, better late than never. On one card I used the new stamp set called wicked cool. On the other one I used an oldie but still a goodie, called House of Haunts. Leave me a comment if you'd like more details! Thanks!!

Christmas is in the air...

I am not one who likes to hear Christmas songs on the radio, or see lights up BEFORE Thanksgiving. However, since making cards does take some time, I have started on my christmas cards. I couldn't wait for the UPS guy to come, and atlast he arrived. I just had to share the goodies that I received. I made this card using the ornament's punch, and the Delightful decorations stamp set. I had to make a card using traditional red and green as the colors, and then I tweaked the second one. I used the Petals-a-plenty embossing folder, the top-note die cut, and the modern label punch. Everything used is from Stampin-Up.

Thanks Giving Turkeys

Atlast, I am finished. My mom asked me to make her 15 place setting for Thanksgiving. It took me 3 days to finish them, but I really think they turned out great! I'd like to know what you think.
