From the catalog....

This card is a sample that is featured in the 2012-2013 Catalog and I love how it showcases a great way to use up your scraps of ribbon and DSP.  I also love the color combo.  You know, I can pick up my catalog, flip thru it and find something new every time.  What have you found that you missed before?

Until next time ~


Exciting news....

Handcrafted With Love!!!
I was recently contacted by a reporter from the Turlock Journal/Manteca Bulletin for a story about handmade gifts.  You can read all about it HERE!


Elegant Butterflies....

....Also known as one of my September Hostess Gathering Projects.  I cased myself from a birthday card that I designed for my boss a few months ago, you can find it HERE.  I switched out my Designer Series Paper for the new Festival of Prints DSP Stack.  It is not made up of holiday prints, but of gorgeous prints that you can use for the holidays.  I punched coordinating pieces with the Postage Stamp Punch, lined them up in 2 rows on a Very Vanilla card front that was embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. I then added some butterflies punched with the new Elegant Butterfly punch, which I blinged up with some adhesive pearls.  I added some luscious Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and one of the ever beautiful Antique Brads.  The color combo for this project is Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  And as a bonus I would like to share with you the card that Sumi, one of my downline, made at the Gathering.  She put her own twist on my design and I love it!!  Take a look:

Isn't it beautiful!  Sumi is sooooo talented!  I will be casing this for sure....Thanks for sharing, Sumi!

Until next time ~


A gift for our stampers

This is the gift that I created for our stampers at the Fall Back Into Stamping class that we had a few weeks ago.  I found these adorable little jars at World Market and decided they would be really cool with Werthers Candy inside and a cute hand stamped tag and hand stamped ribbon on the outside.  The ladies loved them. What do you think?

Until next time ~
