Balloon Celebration Card & Tuesday Tip Video Tutorial

Balloon Celebration Stampin Up

Happy Tuesday! It’s my birthday later this week so I had to create a birthday card for this week’s Tuesday Tip video tutorial. I created a sweet & simple card with the Balloon Celebration stamp set. This is a go to stamp set for birthdays plus it coordinates with a punch! Here is a photo of the stamp set:

November Paper Pumpkin Kit Back in Plaid


Happy Saturday! I’m at the Courtyard Marriott in Billerica at a crafting retreat this weekend. So far I have made 20 cards, 18 Thanksgiving treats, 10 Christmas tags, and the cutest Paper Pumpkin kit stockings from November’s kit.

The Back in Plaid November kit is perfect to add some candy or treat for a friend or co-worker and it will even fit a gift card. I got a sneak peek of the kit in Salt Lake City at OnStage and I was in love and couldn’t wait to get the kit and assemble it.

The gold tree on the banner was pre-printed and I stamped the Merry & Bright with Basic Black Archival ink. I colored a rhinestone with my dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blend to have it coordinate with the baker’s twine and second banner piece. I doubled up the baker’s twine and added with a glue dot to the mini clothespin.

Are you looking for a unique present for a crafty family member this holiday season? Consider purchasing a Paper Pumpkin subscription. You can get more details on Paper Pumpkin page here.

FYI There is an Online Extravaganza starting on Monday 11/20. Check out my Facebook page for more details!

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you find some time to get crafty. I’ll be back on Tuesday with another share. Since it’s my birthday week I’ll be sharing a birthday project.

Happy Stampin’,

OnStage 2017 Swap Card & Recap


Happy Thursday! As I mentioned I was away last week from Wednesday-Sunday for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event in Salt Lake City. It was my first time to Salt Lake City and it was incredible. I had so much fun.

My top five reasons to attend OnStage:

1.       First to see the new catalogs 




2.       Get the inside scoop on new product releases – the Stamparatus is coming in 2018!


3.       Get to go home with new products from Prize Patrol 



4.       Swapping with demonstrators from around the world 



5.       Spending time with friends 



Want to join me in 2018 at an OnStage event? Join my team and you will have the opportunity to attend an upcoming event. I am planning to be in Hartford, CT for April’s event and Orlando, FL for November’s event. I would be happy to answer any questions. I welcome hobbyists to join my team.

My swap card I designed for OnStage features the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set from Page 233 in the 2017-2018 annual catalog. Here is the stamp set:

Dragonfly Dreams Card & Tuesday Tip Video Tutorial


Happy Tuesday! Sorry for taking a bit of a blogging hiatus. I spent Wednesday-Sunday in Salt Lake City for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event. I had several design deadlines to meet before the trip and blogging had to go by the wayside until I got home.

For today’s project I am featuring an easy way to create fun backgrounds on your cards. It is the saran wrap background technique. I’m pretty sure almost everyone has saran wrap in your home. This is a quick & easy tip perfect for any stamper.

Check out my YouTube video tutorial below. If you like what you see please subscribe to my YouTube channel.
