January 2017 Workshop - Card 2


I CASE'd this card from one I found on Pinterest.
This workshop was held in January, so I wanted a card the ladies could make that would be for the upcoming holiday, Valentine's Day. :)

My friends love to use the Big Shot! So we got to use it twice for this card. Once for the heart and then again for the "love".






One of my friends made four more of this layout but changed up the papers and they looked great!! She has four daughters so that was their V-Day cards. 

March came in like a lion, hopefully it goes out like a lamb. :)

January 2017 Workshop - Card 1

At our January workshop, we had a couple of visitors join us. I wanted a card using all stamping. I really like to use my Big Shot. And so do my friends that join me in these workshops. But I was wanting our visitors to experience the joys of stamping and eliminate the frustrations that come from being a beginner trying to learn about what pads to use with folders, framelits, etc.


I think this was a great beginner card. 

I did CASE this from a card I found on Pinterest. I changed the colors and used a different stamp for the greeting.

Happy 22nd Birthday

How many times have you said "I can't believe how time flies by"?

In the blink of an eye, your baby goes from this . . .



(Taken June 11, 1994. She was a whole 5 days old here)


To this . . .



(Taken December 25, 2016. A little over half way to 22.)


My beautiful baby is now a beautiful young lady.

About to tell on myself here:
This is the 22nd time I have wished My Girl a Happy Birthday 
and the first time I have made her a card! 
How does that happen? LOL




I love you to the moon and back, Junebug.

Mason Jar Rehearsal Invitation

I had posted a couple of months ago when I was designing the rehearsal invitation. 

Here is the final product...



I changed the top element from a stamped image to an embossed image. 

And I decided to go with Kraft card stock instead of Whisper White.

I designed the layout in Word. And printed onto the Kraft card stock. 

I used my Silhouette Cameo to design the initial in the mason jar. Sent that to the printer and hand cut them out. 

* glad that's over :) *


I like it when someone asks me to make them something and they are happy with the final product.

Rehearsal Invitation


We all know what that is don't we?

If you don't, it's called a Stamp-a-ma-jig. And it is a very nice tool to have. 
It takes a little getting used to. And you need to have some patience. Or at least I do. :)

I got it out and used it to help make up a couple of examples for a friend.

Love how the purple and yellow come together.




I hope you can see past all the purple blocks. Privacy and all ya' know. :)

The words are printed thru my home computer. The mason jar is an image I traced in my Silhouette Cameo, added the initials then sent to my printer. I hand cut that out. My friend wants 20 invitations. So it looks like I will be cutting out a lot more. 

Thought I would try a yellow mason jar, just for a pop of color.

I kinda like and I kinda don't.


I know I can't be the only one that can't make a decision.

Guess What???!!!

I came up with a totally different idea. The results are gorgeous and I went a totally different route with the colors. 

Sorry though. You will have to wait for the reveal! 

Don't hate me, LOL!!
