#365cardsin2017

I’ve handmade greeting cards for over 10 years, but I’ve been terrible about actually sending them out to people! My goal in 2017 is to send out AT LEAST 365 cards.I hope you’ll help me by participating! I expect that most cards I will send will be BIRTHDAY cards, but I will send out others, including Christmas/Holiday cards in December!

If you would love to receive a handmade birthday card this year, then you can email me your address and birthday, or visit this link: https://goo.gl/forms/lnhz4SArretS3TG22

Your contact information will ONLY be used by me, and only for sending you card(s). #365cardsin2017

Ugly Christmas Sweater… CARDS!

This was SO fun! Last night at our Girls, Ink! group party, our hostess Rochelle provided supplies for us to make “ugly Christmas sweater” cards! Hysterical! And so easy. Make a standard size card base, use any patterned paper, and make it look like a sweater by making a V neck or scoop top. Scoop top made using a circle punch. This really might need to be an annual creation! My ugly sweater card is on the top row, second from the right. Let me know what you think about these! 🙂

Stamp-A-Stack for World Card Making Day!

SAS-WCMD2016smaller

Join me for this year’s Stamp-A-Stack for World Card Making Day! This year I am doing the event a little differently – since my house is still undergoing some renovations I wouldn’t have the time to plan, order and prep my typical Stamp-A-Stack, so you get to pick your own kit! This means you could choose to not even make CARDS this year – you could make gifts or tags!

I’ve missed having classes, so I hope you’ll join me! Register to attend no later than September 19th so I have plenty of time to order your kit and other supplies.

See you soon!

Q&A: Help Me Fit My Stamps Into the Case!

For today’s Q&A I have a question that I had recently, with the solution!

I recently held a Stamp-A-Stack in my home where we used the And Many More stamp set in wood mount. During my classes, I encourage my attendees to change the sentiment for their cards to be what they need, so I get out many stamp sets with lots of sentiments. The wood mount stamps in the new wood mount cases can be tricky to fit back into the box, if it’s a tight fit.

I searched Pinterest, YouTube, and the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website but couldn’t find the answer to “How does “And Many More” fit back into the case?”

It took me a few minutes, but I got all the stamps to fit easily into the case, so I wanted to share the photo so you don’t have to have the same problem! Check out the photo, click it to make it larger, and/or print it to mount inside your case.

This is how And Many More fits back into the wood mount case

Bonus answer: “How does “Teeny Tiny Wishes” fit back into the case?”
