{Video} Halloween Card Beware...



Hi Everyone :)
Happy Saturday. I know...It's odd that I'm posting on the weekend but I was having too much fun this week creating I couldn't wait until next week to share...I even have another video for you tomorrow :)
I'm not big into Halloween, but I do like to make a few cards and treats for the kids in the family.
Today's card is for my oldest niece. Enjoy

{Video} Stamped Muslin Gift Bags

Hi Everyone,
Today my baby is starting 6th grade. Oh my!!! I can't believe Ethan is heading back to school already and summer vacation is over. He's grown so much over the summer, I noticed the other day he's almost as tall as I am.
Ready for today's video? My niece turned 20 yesterday (Yikes! A 6th grader and a 20 year old niece! I'm feeling old) and I made these muslin bags for her little presents. I used them for jewelry, but they are also perfect for gift cards :) You can find the bags in the SU! Holiday Catalog. I'm going to get more of these for the holidays. They will be so much fun to use for an advent scavenger hunt.

Here is a how I put the gift bags together. Enjoy :)

Stampin' 101 Video Series: SU! Stamps and Setup

Hi Everyone,
Today's Stampin'101 video is all about Stampin' Up! stamps and the different types they offer. I also show how I keep my cling mount stamps stored in the cases.
Here's what I do...
Watch Below | Watch on You Tube


I did have a few that the stickers didn't exactly match up with the stamps, but it works for me. If I ever want to switch out and actually put the stickers on the stamps I still can...I love SU! stamps.

Wood Mount stamps come in larger cases and have the wood so you can mount your stamps right to the wood block. They also come with a sticker sheet for adding the stickers to the tops of the wood.
Cling Mount stamps are actually listed in the catalog as clear and come in slimmer style cases along with the labels that you can add to the cling. I prefer not to use the labels as the stickers do not give you a good cling to acrylic blocks.
Photopolymer Stamps are new to Stampin' Up. They currently have 7 different sets and work beautifully with SU! inks. Show & Tell 1 and 2 along with  Designer Typeset would be great additions to Project Life and SU!'s This and That collections.


Just a reminder...August 31st ends my promotion of being entered to win the 2013-2015 In-Color collection when you place an order through my SU! site. Click here to read the announcement.

Thank you so much to all of you who placed an order through me as I start out this new adventure. It's been a great month and I'm looking forward to working with you all.  I have lots of great stuff planned and can't wait to get them all going.
Have a great day everyone :)

Happy Birthday To You


Hi Everyone,
Today I'm sharing a video making a card using some of the 2013-2015 In-Colors. I can't get enough of this awesome set and fabulous colors.

Here are a few more pictures of the finished card.


About the Card...I started off with die cutting the Chalk Talk Framelits die and then stamped out the candles from the Cycle Celebrations stamp set (using Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana inks). Using the Baked Brown Sugar Stampin' Write Markers I inked the Happy Birthday to you! sentiment and added it to the tag. I also added a bow using the natural ribbon and inked the edges of the tag. Layering the card with designer paper from Birthday Basics and Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
