How to be the same but different.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating Christmas cards with the Peacock Foils and the Perfectly Plaid paper with the Pine Tree Punch.

How to emboss on vellum.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  It is not impossible to emboss on vellum, but you do have to be careful.  You might be tempted to use the low setting on your heat tool and instead you need to use the high.  The low will not melt the crystals properly.  Instead use the high setting and keep movingContinue reading “How to emboss on vellum.”

On the 22nd I will be at the Farmers’ Market and will also have aContinue reading “Last class for the year!”

Taking a breath.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  I am taking a breath and getting some things caught up today.  My house looks like I have done six events this week.  So I will take out the trash, do some dusting, and probably even vacuum some.  Then I will get to create and get some long-awaited thank you notes out. Continue reading “Taking a breath.”

Giving back locally.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  It has been brought to my attention that one of our local places that gives so much back during Christmas (and the rest of the year too) has been hit hard with some changes recently. Food For Life isContinue reading “Giving back locally.”

Quilting with paper.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  Since last night’s Live was about the sale and I didn’t create, I made something new this morning.  I “quilted” a card for you.  I used the Tailored Punch, Cookie Cutter Stamp Set with punch, and the Classic Label Punch.  Pick any Christmas paper (here I used the Dashing Along Designer SeriesContinue reading “Quilting with paper.”

Tons of Discounts!

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!  Instead of a single product today I figured we would focus on a bunch.  I think Stampin’ Up! may have lost its mind since there are three full pages of discounts for this year-end closeout.  I know we normally don’tContinue reading “Tons of Discounts!”

Cutting for effect.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  You can mask a project but sometimes the lines get blurred or just don’t come out as clean and crisp as you would like them.  Instead of trying to mask, just cut.  If you cut your card stock before stamping you are guaranteed a clean edge.  You will need a scrap ofContinue reading “Cutting for effect.”

There is lots going on this week.

It’s Management Monday!  There is quite a bit going on this week so I think I will list it out for you.

Tuesday — CardContinue reading “There is lots going on this week.”
