Punch Sampler

Did you know that Stampin' Up! has 42 different punches you can use to help you design and decorate your paper projects? WOW, that's a lot! I have over half of these! I have created a punch sampler with what I have, allowing you to see at a glance what they will look like. You can also hold the sample up to any project or stamp to see if it will work with your design. Thanks to my online buddies on Late Night Stampers for the idea.

Come see this great tool at my Open House this weekend and check out my sale!!!

Happy Stamping,

Asian Artistry

Are you ready for some new ideas to try? Maybe some new colors? Or maybe a new image? This is one of the new card projects that will be displayed this weekend at my New Catalog Open House. Come to The Salvation Army, 510 N. Kellogg, Galesburg, on Friday from 10:00 to 2:00 or Saturday from 9:00 to noon. I will have several new samples to view, plus a sample book of the Big Shot Die Cut machine, and a punch sampler. Learn how to receive a copy of the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog for FREE! Plus, take advantage of my sale, good this weekend only. Want cards like this, but don't want to take the time to make them yourself? I will do custom orders for cards, card sets, party favors, invitations, or gift items. Send me an e-mail at for more information. See you this weekend!

Happy Stamping,

You're Invited

We're celebrating soon! My husband, Dave and I will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary on August 11. Since this is such a special occasion, we are celebrating by renewing our vows during the worship service on August 9th. This is the invitation I designed to send to our close friends and family. Though it looks white, the cover is actually Very Vanilla on Night of Navy and used the new embossing folder. The inside used the shimmery white and is printed using the computer and script print, then cut to size. I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know what you think.

Happy stamping,

Sandal Dressing

Want to make your plain flip flops POP? Bring out the Big Shot! Cut out the Daisy flower die (or a favorite of your choice) using foam sheets and attach using ribbon or thread, whatever suits your creative mind! The sandal shown here is from a demonstrator on Late Night Stampers. I can't remember which one. My daughter and a friend recently decorated their own sandals with bright colors. My, they sure are pretty. Call me to decorate your own pair.

Happy Stamping,

Gone Camping

The kids and I are packed to go camping for the 1st time in a year! Dave can't go due to other obligations at church, but he'll be here taking care of the critters. The rest of us will be enjoying spiritual renewal at a retreat and a lot of other fun activities. I'll share more when we get back. Oh, by the way, I do plan on working with my Stampin' Up! projects during some of my free time.

Happy stamping,

Definately Decorative

If you're like me, once in a while, you'll look for a different and inexpensive way to spruce up a room without spending a lot of money. This Adornment Decor Element is a very easy rub-on available in 8 different colors to suit your color scheme. There are several Decorative Elements in the new catalog for all walks of life and many ages. I prefer mine to be portable, so have used these in picture frames, but they'll go right on the wall. You can even put the Upsy Daisy design on the lid of your laptop. If I had one, I'm sure I would buy it. Check out the new catalog by clicking on the catalog picture.

Happy Stamping!
