September Stamping Gypsies

Hello Friends,

I stamp with a group of fun ladies called the "Stamping Gypsies" about every 6-8 weeks.  We get together at someone's house on a Sunday and stamp until we finish each other's project designs.  It's always a lot of fun and laughter.  I am so glad they adopted me!  I always learn a new technique and have a beautiful handful of cards at the end.

These were our cards for September.  Enjoy and have a wonderful week!

Pop n Cuts Gift Card Holder

Happy Sunday Friends,

I saw this video that Dawn Griffith did on Youtube and just had to try this gift card:

I didn't stray far from Dawn's version for this card, but I can tell I'll be making a ton of these.  I have a holiday bazaar coming up the end of October, and this gift card can be adapted over and over.  Thanks to Dawn for the inspiration to try something different than the usual pop up card.

Have a wonderful week!

File Folder Thinking of You Card


I hope you are all having a nice relaxing Labor Day.  Ok, I am now addicted to making these file folder cards with the Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board.  Last week , Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin' Up!, was involved in a horse riding accident and she's pretty banged up.  I wanted to send her a card to let her know I hope she feels better soon.

I had found some file folder card videos on You Tube the past few weeks and wanted to try them. Patty Bennett did a wonderful video on these types of cards (thank you Patty!).  You can find it here on You Tube:

Here's my card for Shelli:

Take care!

New Envelope Punch Board

Welcome to September!

I hope you are all having a fabulous long weekend and ready for school to start.  My little person is starting middle school on Tuesday.  Wow!

Starting today, September 1st, you can order the new Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board (Product Code 133774)!

But it's not just for envelopes.  Check out these cute 'file folder' cards I made:

Some great facts about this wonderful tool:
  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use; all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score!
  • It's small and lightweight; use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).

  • Here's a great video to show just how to use this little guy:

    If you'd like to purchase one of these, head on over to my online store at

    Have a great week everyone!

    Cheers to 7 Years!
