And the birthday continues…

It’s Sale Saturday! The last week or so of Sale-A-Bration is upon us. Don’t wait because it will be gone before you know it. Also, if you haven’t heard there is a birthday promotion going on until Monday. Check out yesterday’s post if you aren’t sure what I’m talking about. And to tie things up the virtual kit class is up also. There is lots going on so if you need more details or have questions just contact me. There is no stupid question. Honest.

Happy Crafting!

Giving back to you!

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward! Since it’s my birthday today I have decided to give back to you. Without you I wouldn’t be here. I am so grateful that you enjoy classes and support my efforts with your orders. Thank you.

For the full details of this personal promotion please have a look at the email that went out this morning at 6 am or here’s the link…https://mailchi.mp/e5767355abce/birthday-promotion.

Happy Shopping and Crafting to You!

When a fraction becomes a whole.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am only using part of a stamp to illustrate how to create a partial background and a simple card. Take a sponge, another stamp, or a sponge dauber to ink the background stamp. Then stamp away.

To watch how this card is created please go to https://youtu.be/EjryTqRhhLs.

Stick it backwards.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever tried to glue a card together and ended up getting fingerprints all over it. Instead turn the card over so the glued part is face down. Take a silicone mat and place over the back of the card. Now gently press and rub to get best adhesion. You will not have any fingerprints on your card.

Happy Crafting!

Portions of a whole.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you earn the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set and don’t know what to do with it? Well, use a portion of that huge stamp and not the whole thing. You can also use it as the main focal point, emboss it, stamp it, color it, etc. In this case I only used about a third of the stamp.

Preparation means better rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! I don’t know about you but it’s hard to rest when there are piles on my desk. So before I can rest a little cleaning is in order. For me a good to do list and some calendar management goes a long way. I need to prepare to work to not have piles to rest.

What do you have to do to be able to fully rest?

Happy Crafting!

Giving back.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward! Have you ever had a week that no matter what you touch it breaks? This is the kind of week (or month) I’ve been having. Cars, heat, my sinuses (allergies, by the way), and I’m not asking what else. And in the midst of that I remember what’s important…health and friends. The rest is just stuff. Now I have quite a bit that I have fixed and still a few things to finish fixing, but it’s stuff.

Here’s my point…keep it in perspective. Good friends are hard to come by. Health is sometimes hard to come by. But stuff can be replaced. Remember when you are giving back what you are investing in.

Happy Crafting!

Shamrock Card

It’s Tutorial Thursday! As it is almost St. Paddy’s Day I figured a shamrock card would be appropriate. It also breathes new life into those heart dies you bought for Valentine’s Day. Hint, hint.

Happy Crafting!
