February Stamp Class

I have officially moved back into my fifth-wheel RV, but I am still trying to get everything organized.  Small spaces are good but everything has to have a place and I have too much stuff that doesn’t have its own place yet.  I hope to get there mostly this month – wish me luck! I have planned my February Stamp Class and wanted to share the projects with you.  If… Read More »

Valentine Cookie Pouch

I have been extremely negligent in updating my blog and I apologize!  No excuses, but I will update my status soon.  But for today, I wanted to share a cute little bag just the right size for a decorated cookie (mine came from WalMart, but you could make your own if you want). You could use the Glassine Gift Bags on page 176 of the Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog, but… Read More »

Jr. Legal Portfolio

These were popular a few years ago but I think they are timeless and so appropriate even now.  I made these for my team members that will be attending our upcoming convention next month. I found directions online and then I added the inside pocket because, well, because I like pockets! I think I will make some of these to sell in my booth at Alamo Craft Company. Here are… Read More »

My Craft Booth

I decided to try having a craft booth at Alamo Craft Company in San Antonio.  A year or two ago, I had good luck selling off stamped cards made from years of swapping, so I thought it would be fun.  Here is my booth so far: I know I will be making changes; actually, every time I go in there, I change it a little bit.  So far, I have… Read More »

Tryouts for Stampin’ Up! Convention

I’m excited to be going to Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage celebration (convention) next month!  They are looking for people to create display boards for the event, and even though I have never done this before, I decided to apply for the honor.  They want 3 cards fronts, 1 scrapbook page, and 2 3-D items. From the hostess set in the Occasions Catalog.  I like to sew almost as much as I… Read More »

Tin of Cards

I think I might be the last Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to make this kit.  Back when the catalog came out last summer, I ordered it but then forgot about it.  Until this week.  WOW!  What a great kit!!  The kit comes with the tin (of course), the dividers, and all the consumable supplies to make 16 cards (4 of each).  T In addition, you will need the Tin of Cards… Read More »

Getting Settled in a Real House

So, after 15 months living in a (real nice, large) fifth wheel, I couldn’t do it anymore.  I realized that I liked my space too much and missed the sturdy walls of a real house.  So the fifth wheel is up for sale and I am renting a nice house near Sea World in San Antonio.  I have been doing some stamping (but really need to finish the unpacking and… Read More »

Trick or Treats!

I’m getting ready for the trick or treaters that we will have here at the park during our 2 Halloween weekends.  I wanted to make them look special, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of time or money so, I am making these sour cream style packets to put the candy.  I am using retired paper in Halloween colors and I decorated them with a quick tag. Here… Read More »

Witching Decor Project Kit

The new Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! has some wonderful kits and I couldn’t resist getting a couple of them.  I guess the question that remains is “will I get the rest of them?”  Maybe so, if they are as fun as the Witching Decor hat! This kit sells for just $22 and includes most of the supplies needed.  I also ordered the coordinating stamp set, and I already had… Read More »

SAB – Irresistibly Yours

One of the free items you can select is our phenomenal Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper.  In the pack, you will receive 12 full, 12×12 sheets of embossed paper (2 sheets each of 6 designs).  Then, you add color using a sponge, dauber, brayer, or spritzer; the embossed designs will resist the ink, resulting in a gorgeous paper that you can use for boxes, bags, cards, and more!  Check out… Read More »

Pretty as a Picture

Stampin’ Up!’s Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (137784) is so pretty that it is shown in the catalog framed. Well, I figured, why not take it a step further and decorate a painter’s tray-style frame? I added some die-cut butterflies from our new Butterflies Thinlits Dies (137360).  It took me a few tries to figure out the correct “sandwich” in my Big Shot.  I finally ended up with the Magnetic… Read More »
