Happy Halloween!

I have a fun little card for you to celebrate halloween.  Instead of carving a pumpkin, I carved a card!  I drew the face in pencil on the inside of the Tangerine Tango card base.  Then I used my craft knife to cut it out!  I took a piece of printer paper and cut it [...]

Cracked Glass Lighthouse – a new card (finally)

Okay, I finally stamped a new card.  It was so much fun to do something that wasn’t cake shaped, cake flavored or cake related!
I’m not sure if this is a widely-known thing or not, but October is Pastor/Clergy Appreciation Month.  Our church doesn’t have any big organized thing, but I wanted to make sure I [...]

Finished cake

I think I have the finished product now.  It doesn’t look too fancy, but there’s just a little bit more pizazz than the plain cake.

I asked around for ideas and got tons of good ones.  I wish I had more cakes to top with all these great ideas!  In the end, I decided that I [...]

Cake with 3 layers finished

Okay, here’s where I’m at with the paper cake project.  I’ve finished all three layers of slices.  Here’s the top two layers done:

Here’s the whole thing assembled:

Now, the problem I’m having is whether or not to add a topper on the cake, and if I do, what should it be?
Please post any ideas you have [...]

Check out our awesome CEO, Shelli Gardner!

Oh, my gosh – you are not going to believe these super cute place settings using the Big Shot and the Curly Label Punch!  I do not yet own a Big Shot, and have been resisting the temptation to buy one, up until now.
This is the CEO of Stampin’ Up!, Shelli Gardner, doing a small [...]

A Cake in Progress

Well, here’s the latest updates to my current project.  This cake will be a centerpiece of my table setting.  The top layer has been assembled now, so all three layers are built.  I decided on how to decorate it also.  I’m going to use the new ribbon originals in the Holiday Mini Catalog and tie [...]

What I’m working on. . .

I thought that since there’s been a lack of new projects posted this week, that I should show you what I’ve been working on.
First up is a Christmas present.  My husband has 4 sisters and it gets harder every year to think of gifts for them.  I like to do handmade gifts because it’s easier [...]

New Samples + a Video sample from Stampin’ Up!

I was going to let you know that I’ve uploaded some new samples to my Creative Project section of my SU business website, until I popped in and found this awesome video of a project that SU created!  How exciting!

Do a little dance…

…a little happy dance, that is.

My card won a contest! John Sanpietro, of Stamping is my Business, moved this past summer and held a card contest for “Just Moved” cards.

I created this card, that you can read about on his blog and the whole post on my blog here.
The prize for the contest is a [...]

I need your help! (will bribe with stamps)

Okay, I need some help from you all.  I have volunteered to create a place setting for a Holiday Open House/Silent Auction for my local chamber of commerce.  What I need your help with is ideas for what to include in the place setting.  Here’s what I have so far:
**  I’m planning to use the [...]
