Flower Shop Happiness


Here is another summery birthday card for one of my many December birthdays.  I just realized that I usually try to make bright, happy and non Christmas themed cards for my winter birthdays.  I wonder if that means I should be making birthday cards with snowflakes and evergreens for the spring and summer birthdays.  I don’t think that will happen.

I used the stamp set called Flower Shop with the matching Pansy Punch for this.  You can save 15% by buying both of these items in a bundle.  The ribbon along the side is called 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and is in the color called Coastal Cabana.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Yippee-Skippee!.


Peekaboo Frame Thanks


I got the idea for this card when I went to the Stampin Up! Convention in July in Salt Lake City.  Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin Up! made a card like this and showed it to us at one of the General Sessions.  I don’t have a picture to share of her card because I lost all my photos I took from Convention, so I just made one using the products I have on hand.   When you pull the ribbon on the tag it pulls open the door and shows a hidden message.


To make the window you just use the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die.  It cuts out the frame and window section for you.  I just attached the tag that you pull on the edge of the window using Sticky Strip.

Happy Thanksgiving

Truly Grateful-001

I am Truly Grateful for so much in my life – my family, my friends, our health and all that I have.

William Arthur Ward said “feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it” or in my case like making a card and not sending it.  So go make a card and send it to someone to show your gratitude for having them in your life.  They will love it and know that you are grateful for them.

May you always have someone and something to be grateful for.  Just don’t forget to express it once in a while.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wonderful Wreath


This is the third card we made at our Club meeting this month.  It uses two items from the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set is called Wonderful Wreath and really is beautiful.  Obviously, it can be used as a Christmas wreath but you could also make a Fall wreath is you used colors such as Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler.  I think it could also be used to make a Spring or Summer wreath if you used the appropriate colors and added a couple of flowers to it.  Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas!

The merry was cut using my Big Shot and the Expressions Thinlits in the Holiday Catalog.  The set includes three words (it also has Thankful and Love).

Six Sided Birthday Card


I know the holidays are coming soon but sometimes you need to make a card that is not holiday related during this time of year.  I have a lot of friends who have birthdays during the months of November and December and they want cards that don’t have a holiday theme in them.  I made this card using the stamp set called Six Sided Sampler.  The set has a matching punch called the Hexagon Punch.  You can buy both in a Bundle and save 15%!  Stampin Up! also offers a matching Embossing Folder called Honeycomb.  One of the best things about Stampin Up! is that it does sells items that go together.

Happy Snow Day


We made this card at our monthly Club meeting using the stamp set called Snow Day. This stamp set is very cute and has all the stamps needed to make a snow man.  I actually won this stamp set at the Stampin Up! Convention in July.  It is not a set I would normally buy but I am so glad I won it because now I love it.  It makes a great child’s card and well as cute Christmas cards.

If you are interested in going to the Stampin Up! Convention just shoot me an email and I can tell you all the information about becoming a Stampin Up! demonstrator or click on the Join Now button on the top or right side of my blog!
