FREE Event

Digital Scrapbooking Day-005

The last Monday of every month is Open Your Stamp Bag Night, a FREE night of Open Stamping.

You just bring your bag of supplies—even if you haven’t taken them out of the bag yet—and your own adhesive—and a snack to share and we will spend the evening stamping.

If you’re feeling uncreative, it’s a great place to get ideas from everyone else.  Or just come, hang out, enjoy some girl-time and de-stress!

Please call or email me to let me know you’re coming.

Doors Open from 6 PM til 11 PM.  If you’re feeling extremely creative and need to hang out longer, you can lock up on your way out---grin!

Don’t forget your adhesive and a snack.

If you need card stock or adhesive to work on a particular project, you can purchase a punch card and then pick out what color sheets or adhesive that you need.

Simply Scored FREE Class or FREE ebook

I thought I’d use this card to entice you to purchase our new Simply Scored and in doing so, attend my FREE class where I’ll give you instructions to score and cut several different types of folded cards.  Check details below to see how you can get this free class.


The stamp set is Zoo Review clear #122199

I also used the Well Worn Designer Series Paper  #122359 as well as the Happiest Birthday Hostess Stamp set—love it! 






So, I got playing with this stamp set and I couldn’t stop!  What fun!

I used our 3”circle Big Shot Die #122125and cut this circle of fabric from our Timeless Portrait Fabric #122337.  The colors are Basic Black, Whisper White, and Lucky Limeade.  I also use the leaf die #114511 for the accent.  Buttons are Neutrals #119743.  I stamped the zebra in Basic Black and then used my Aqua Painter to add more color to the stripes.



For the lion card, I just inked the lion in Tangerine Tango. 

I sponged the edges of the embossed background piece with Early Espresso ink, then sponged with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint #116806, for this cool platinum look!  The ribbon is Chantilly crochet trim #118480.

As promised, here’s how you can get a FREE scoring class with me.

When you purchase your new Simply Scored Tool $29.95  #122334 and a pack of extra place markers $2.50  #125625

from me by October 17th, (either by email or online order), you will be able to attend a FREE class or receive my ebook, “Simply Scored Patterns” by email.

FREE Class is October 29th at 10 AM

***please note, if you’ve already ordered your Simply Scored  tool from me at a class, you need only place a different $30 order for your choice of products in order to come to the FREE class.***

Just order your Simply Scored here now! or email me to order it for you and have it here to pick it up at the class.onlineordering_black_100

October’s Scrap Project


I love how this page turned out.  I used the beautiful original design from a Convention Swap by Tiffany Cline, switched it up with some paper folding that Stampin’ Up! presented to us in the monthly demonstrator newsletter.  Then I used this gorgeous stamp set,  Creative Elements to come up with the final look.  Hope you all enjoyed it that came to class!IMG_8135

A close up of the paper folding.  It takes 2 strips to create this look.  Notice the left hand page has a small strip that is folded.

Colors: Early Espresso, Old Olive, River Rock, Elegant Eggplant along with Pocketful of Posies DSP.

SNAIL Sale-ends October 15th

How Low can we go?  That is, how low can the price go on Snail refills?  The more orders we have, the cheaper it will get.

I’m sure you are gearing up to make your holiday cards and projects and will need plenty of adhesive and that can get expensive so I thought I’d offer an alternative to buying that ‘cheap’ stuff at the big box stores.

Many of you who participated in my last sale have mentioned that you are getting low and some who missed the sale thinking that you’d never need 6 refills, are finding out that you are needing it and wish you had participated!

You may pick this order up at my house or a class or if you get some friends together and order a minimum of 40, I will ship them to you for FREE.  Otherwise shipping will be based on First Class Mail cost of about $3 for 6 refills.

The cost of a snail refill is normally ($5.25) with s&h and tax.

When you place your order now for 6 or more, the price is starting at $4.60 each, but will continue to go down as orders come in so that your final price could be as low as $4.00 each.  This will be the final price per refill (I am only charging you tax and that is included in this price).

10/12/11  Cost is down to $4.15 per refill!  We still have 72 hours til it ends and it can still go down!

Be sure to email me  and order your’s today.


If you don’t already have the applicator, be sure to include one of those in your order $6.95 ($7.36 total)

I will take orders until the 15th of October, then I will send you an email with the total price.  I’ll also send you an invoice to pay for your order by credit card. Please indicate when you order if you are picking up or will need to pay shipping.

You are welcome to tell your friends.

Shaker Frames


My upline asked me to demo the new Shaker Frames #124155 (mini catalog) at her last meeting.  Here are some ideas we came up with!  Tash made this one with the stamp set Nature Walk.


Here is one that I designed last year but just added the shaker frame over top the ‘25’ on the card.  This design was just embossed with Gold EP then sponged with Rose Red and Always Artichoke ink.

Colored Mica Flakes

For both these cards, we colored the mica flakes #124115 with just a drop or 2 of the color we wanted, then shook it in an empty container til the color was distributed.

IMG_8004 then we did one with our new Gently Falling Set #123804.

Also used the new Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon #124104

Hope you enjoy!
