Christmas Cards

Time to get some cards together for November's Card Classes coming up!  It has been fun creating some that are very simple to put together yet hard not to add too much bling.  We will be creating these on Nov. 7th at Kelly Apartments Community Room in Lewisburg and I will also have them for an event I an doing on November 9th for a program!


 SOTM only in October!  Order ASAP!
The card design using this set came from Mary Kay Torres.  Thanks Mary Kay!

Swing Card

I have wanted to make one of these swing cards for quite some time and today is the day!  I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge from CTMH.  On page 52 there are 9 different swing cards you can make!  I have only just begun to have fun with these.  I used Halloween Greetings Holiday, D1605 and Frightfully Fun Holiday, B1453 stamp sets, Scaredy Cats paper, Colonial White ink and Black ink for this card.

I would love to teach you how to make one of these!  Stop in on Sept. 26th at the First Baptist Church and I will teach you how.

Happy September!

It has been a while since I have posted anything.  I have been busy with family that has been visiting from out of state.  We have had some good times and lots of family dinners for about 16+, all at my house!  But now school has started, schedules are getting set and Fall is coming.  There are some AWESOME September specials with Close To My Heart.
  1. September is National Stamping Month
  2. September Stamp of the Month

 September Stamp of the Month - Family is Forever
I have now started playing with the new Stamp of the Month.  I just love the CTMH Stamp of the Month program. I get so excited to see the new set each month, and this month is no exception. I see scrapbook pages, cards, and so much more. You can get it for just $5 ($17.95 value) with any $50 order (before S&H).  The more I play with it the more I am loving it!


My creation...

Scrapbook Ideas

 September is National Stamping Month: Along with it we are celebrating our owner, Jeanette Lynton's 30th anniversary in the stamping industry with a special stamp set you can earn for FREE called #30yearsofhappy.  This cute set is yours for FREE when you spend $30 on any current retail-priced stamps during the month of September. This set is valued at $13.95.  Once you've spent your $30 in stamps, that gives you almost 50% more back in value for FREE! So if you order the STOM you can automatically get this stamp set FREE!  What a great deal.  

Some more of my ideas...

When ordering from my website, you will be prompted to add it to your order when you check out.

 Think about it, if you take advantage of BOTH September specials, you'll spend a minimum of $55 and get over $86.90 in products! Now that's a bargain!

My next workshop is September 26th, 6PM-11PM at the First Baptist Church!  

I will also have a card making workshop at my house on September 11th, 10AM to noon.  I want to have a "Stamping Techniques" class in the near future so let me know if that is of interest to you.

My Card Creations

This is an "out of the box" use of the August SOTM.  I used the owl's wing to create the flowers.  The centers were stamped in Thistle, Liquid Glass applied to the centers with a Flamingo pink dot added to it.  I layered it onto a left over piece of  Lollidoodle paper, retired.
 I made a template with the  Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, page 67.  Then using Honeycomb C1537, I did random stamping and added the sentiment.  Sweet card!

This is the Country-Born D1543 stamp set printed with Saddle ink and colored with the new ShinHan markers.  Love the way the markers color!  This one was made with Operation Write Home in mind.

Looking forward to an upcoming workshop on August 15th.

Enjoy Life's Moments!

Chevron Fold Card

This card is made form Free To Be Me paper pack from May.  I embossed the lower half  and sponged two colors, Sorbet and Lagoon inks, over the embossing.  Made a chevron fold to go over top of that then stamped and "fussy cut" the sentiment.  Come to the Summer Workshop, July 25-26, and learn how to make the chevron folds for either a card or a border on a scrapbook page!  Check out my Workshop Dates, Times and Place on the right.

Yay, it's June!
That means summer vacation begins in a few days

I am excited and cannot wait to have some extra time to play with this stamp set.
Oh ... and June brings another CTMH special!
Details on a future post.
