Head start on Christmas cards using new goodies from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Hi friends,

It's 80 degrees outside and I've been at my craft desk making Christmas cards using some new goodies I received yesterday from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  This year, the catalog runs longer and has many more choices.  You can get a head start too on your holiday crafting beginning August 1st!

Visit me at to see more details. You can also email me at to receive a free copy of the Holiday Catalog. 

Happy Saturday!

Tunnel card I saw on youtube.

Happy July 16th Friends!
I peruse youtube for Stampin' Up! inspired craft ideas and I always come across Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. This past weekend she had a tunnel card video tutorial so I tried it.  This card is so easy to make and I think I'll be making lots more of them.  For this card I used Whisper White and Elegant Eggplant cardstock, Elegant Egglplant ink and my Petals A Plenty embossing folder.  I also used some retired ribbon for the bow.  To give it a little sparkle on the front I used Dazzling Details.  Stamps set were My Friend and Fabulous Phrases.  At last, but not least I used the Framelits Labels, sizes 3 and 4. To get such easy score lines, I used my Stampin' Up! Simply Scored (TM) tool.

"Juicy" Brown Paper Gift Bag

I have been wanting to make this lemonade themed idea for almost a year, since I received a beautiful card for my birthday last summer.  I used the orange/lemon stamp from the Tart & Tangy retired Stampin' Up! set. I used a card front as decoration on a plain brown paper bag that I stamped my fruit using the new Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 In Color Raspberry Ripple.  This gift bag just makes me kinda thirsty!  Come check out Link Up Tuesday over at to see this bag and other beautiful crafty projects by very talented people (

Have a great 4th tomorrow!

A Cake Pop 4th of July

I finally tried making cake pops and I knew I wanted a patriotic theme. I made white and red ones as well, but they came along after this picture was taken.  We are having a block party this 4th of July, so provided they don't melt, these should be a fun treat.

Happy Independence Day everyone!
