First Frost Bundle!

I just love this bundle. The whole suite is AMAZING! There is the stamp set and matching dies. Also some awesome designer series papers that all are shimmery! And of course the awesome velvet ribbon.
I have used them all with this suite plus a greeting from Beautiful Bouquet and 2 dies from the Stitched Labels set.
The bow is a new item also called Braided Linen Trim!
If you would like a catalog and don't already have a demonstrator just contact and I would love to get one to you! The new holiday catalog is awesome!
Happy Stamping!

Country Home!

This is a fun new stamp set out of the holiday catalog! It is called Country Home! It has some great images in it!
I have also used the new Tin Tile and Corrugated Embossing folders on this card. I just love the new holiday catalog. It has some great stuff in it!
I colored the flowers with my Blends and fussy cut them out. I did the same with the pitcher. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and die cut it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then layered it with a scalloped oval cut out of Soft Suede Cardstock.
I finished the card off with some new Braided Linen Trim.
Happy Stamping!

Timeles Tidings Project Kit!

These cards are from the Timeless Tidings Project Kit! You get to make 20 cards for only $20. So that is 20 gorgeous cards for $1 a piece. If you want the stamp set to go with it that would be another $20. That is what I used here. But I am sure a lot of you have Christmas stamps you could use instead if you want to keep your cost down.
You get everything you need to make these cards except ink, dimensionals if you want and adhesive. Lots of people know how I like to embellish but these cards don't even have ribbon on them. 
All 20 cards would have only taken about an hour to put together but I decided to stamp the insides also.
I was going to layer the insides to but I decided not too. I am going to use these for my Christmas cards this year. With the cost of postage a lot of times my cards cost about $3.56 to mail out. So I am trying to keep the cost down on postage and just went with what came with the kit!
Happy Stamping!

Pop Of Petals Online Class!

I forgot to mention that my online order will go thru September 30th and the card kits will be available by October 5th. If you would like them sent to you there will be a $7 charge for shipping!

Here are the cards for my Monthly Online Class. If you purchase the Pop of Petals Bundle you will receive supplies for all three of these cards. My month is off a little bit due to my recovery time from surgery.
How does it work? It will be a little different each month depending on how much the cost of the bundle it. This month is a stamp set and a punch for a total of $36. You save 10% by purchasing the bundle instead of purchasing them separately.
So if you go to my online store and use hostess code YUJBD3ZS and purchase this bundle I will send you all the supplies to make these three cards!
If your order is over $150 you don't need to use the hostess code. You will receive hostess benefits for orders over $150.
Happy Stamping!

Never Ending Card!

This is a Never Ending Card. It will just keep turning over and over. It really only has 4 sides but still keeps turning.
You can kindof tell what its doing the way some of the pictures are. It has a lot of pieces but is fun to make!
I am thinking of doing a class for it but not sure yet!
Stay tuned for another Never Ending card that I did first!!
For the supplies on my card most everything is out of the new Holiday Catalog! I have used the Cauldron Bundle which includes a stamp set and dies. Also the dies that go with this bundle cut out images on the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Papers so that is really cool.
 Since there are 4 sides to this card it is like 4 card fronts. So lots of designing to do. I didn't want to use the same images over and over so I also used the Trick or Treat stamp set. It doesn't have matching dies so there was some fussy cutting to do with these images!
To order these products or any other products just leave me a message or send me an email.
You can also order on my online store .

Happy Stamping!

Peaceful Poinsettia #2!

Here is my 2nd card using the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set from the new Holdiday Catalog!
I just love this set. It is so versatile. Also if you sign up for our retreat on October 13th you will be getting it for free!!
I have used the bundle, stamp set and dies to make this card. I cut out the Poinsettia with Copper foil paper. I have used Cobbler and Tranquil Tide Cardstock with the new Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Papers. They are very pretty.   These papers have copper foil accents on one side and are so gorgeous!!
Also for this project I have used the Merry Merlot and Copper reversible ribbon. It is luscious!!
Remember if you would like to order any of these gorgeous projects feel free to contact me or directly to my online store and use coupon code YUJBD3ZS.

That's all for today!

I made a couple of projects yesterday. I am of course not going to be spending all day crafting yet but that's okay!!

Also the Stampin Up Holiday catalog went live yesterday and it is awesome! If you would like one of these just let me know!

I have my new class schedule up. You can see it on my sidebar!

Also I will be continuing with my online class. For this class I make 3-4 projects with a chosen stamp set for that month. If you purchase the stamp set or the whole bundle you will get the supplies to make the some or all of the cards I have made.

You can either order thru me or at my online store . If you order from my online store please use Host code YUJBD3ZS. (If your order is over $150 don't use this code, you will receive hostess gifts). If you order online you can pick up (as I am not able to drive) your projects from me if you are local.

Peaceful Poinsettia!

Hello Everyone!
As you may or may not know I had to have surgery last week! So this is the first time I have been on the computer for awhile!
I had two ruptured discs in my neck so they had to be replaced and fused together. Not much fun but it went better than I had expected!

So before surgery I was at a stamping retreat in Union, Wa.  Gorgeous place. Unfortunately, the smoke coming down from Canada was a little overwhelming. Of course, it cleared out and was beautiful the day we left.

I played with some of the new products going live in the holiday catalog tomorrow! I was playing with the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle. Wonderful stamps and dies. This card I am featuring today was cased from the catalog page 23. I added a lot of my own twist to it.
I put some of the new gorgeous glimmer papers behind the poinsettia. It comes in three colors and is awesome. I also added some of the green glimmer paper for the leaves to add some sparkle. I used some of the new red rhinestones and colored some of the regular rhinestones yellow with one of my blends.

The new Holiday Catalog is full of awesome products and it does go live tomorrow!
If you would like one of these awesome catalogs or to place an order just leave me a comment or send me an email!

Summer Stamping Retreat!

Yesterday was our Summer Stamping Retreat. My sister Tami and I have started doing quarterly one day retreats. So yesterday was our 2nd one this year. I was really excited that our attendance went up from 5 last April to 13 yesterday.
Everyone did 8 projects. Both Tami and I did 4 projects each. Two fun fold cards, 1 technique with a card included and 1 regular card. These are my 4 projects.
I did the Double Dutch Fold Card and the Impossible card. Plus I demonstrated the Black Ice technique.
We played Bingo, gave away a lot of prizes including two Grand Prizes that were a Stamparatus and the Darling Label Punch Tin. Our lunch was catered by my Wonderful daughter Kati, who served a great Chicken Salad, Fruit Salad, breads and some yummy homemade cookies.
If you are interested in our retreats, which we are trying to do quarterly our next one is October 13 and will be holiday themed!

Update on Posts!

Sorry I haven't been posting many projects lately!! Please don't give up on me. I have a pinched nerve or something going on in my shoulder and typing is extremely painful right now. So hopefully I will be able to get back on a regular schedule soon!
Sadly, even crafting has been difficult!
I hope you are having a great summer!!

Happy and Flamingos!

Hello! I know I haven't posted for awhile. I seemed to have pinched a nerve in shoulder or something and it is really painful. I didn't craft for a week because of it. It is really  painful to type also. But I cant sit around and do nothing forever! I have things to get done and I just cant! What can I say!!
But luckily there are some awesome crafters out there and its fun to "case" their work. That makes it easier for us sometimes, Right?!

Someone sent me the link to The Flamingo Store so I had to go there and find some great Flamingo deals. For those of you that don't know it I love flamingos. In fact at the Catalog Premier Tea Luncheon last Saturday a few of the girls brought me a bag full of flamingo stuff. One of the items was a flamingo necklace that lights up. So I had to wear it thru the whole event!! It was great!!

For my card, I found it on Pinterest, you can find the original card here . I used the Petal Promenade designer papers. I just love these papers!! I also used two of the new glimmer papers, white and the pink. So this card is much more sparkly in person than it shows!!
I cut the word happy out with my large letter dies and then stamped the birthday with the Beautiful day stamp set! I have cut out the birthday using a label die from the Lake Side Framelits.

I really like how this card turned out!

Happy Stamping!

Monogrammed Double Pocket Purse Box!

Here is a Monogrammed Double Pocket Purse box I made. This will be for Marketplace at the retreat in August in Union, WA. I also did this same project in all black and white for Main St last week.
The original purse was done by Cinder Papercraft and you can find the you tube video here . She has some great projects.
I have used the Very Vintage stamp set, Large Letter Alphabet die set, Petal Promenade Designer Series Papers, Pink Glimmer Paper, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla cardstock.
Its pretty easy to make. I will be using all 4 designs of the papers when making up the kits for marketplace. I love all the papers so much in this set.
This project comes with 4 cards with decorated envelopes and a decorated notepad.
Happy Stamping!

Too Much?? Or Not??

I'm not very good at Collage projects. But I saw this on facebook and had to give it a try. The original was done by Betty Ann Corbin. That's all I really know about her. But hers is gorgeous so here is mine version of it!
I think if I did it again I would put it on a little bigger canvas with the same amount of die cuts. Except for the doily everything on this is a die cut or punch. Oh, of course not the rhinestones and pearls of course.
I used some of the new beautiful pink glimmer paper to give it a little sparkle. There are lots of different dies on this project.
Let me know if you think its too much or not!!
Happy Stamping!
