Gift set

I made this gift set for a very special girlfriend. I altered both a notebook and a datebook, then made a bag-a-lope and a card all to match.

Made these simple bookmarks from the paint chips you get at a hardware store. Embossed white embossing powder and tied on some ribbon and beads.

4 months till Christmas

Have started to think about Christmas, need to build up my stock.

Harvest Time

Although I hate to admit it I can sense the end of summer. I love summer but fall is my favorite time of the year.
Although you can't see it in the picture, the leaves have some fall coloured sparkles on them.

Groovy Girl

I heat embossed some white embossing powder on glossy cardstock, then colour washed to make it look tye dyed. I think a teen girl would love this card.

Clean and Simple

I love this card. It was sooooo simple, just one layer. It could be used for a gent's birthday or an anniversary card.

Time for baby

Here are two baby cards that I made with the Animal Stories set from Stampin' Up!

My card critic

This is Felix, he is one of two cats that we have. We also have a dog. He often watches me make my cards. As you can see, he sleeps in amongst my supplies.

Card PAcks

Here is a sample of the card packs that I am selling. 10 assorted Birthday Cards for $30. I'm making several for an upcoming craft fair.

Pillow Box

I just got this pillow box die for my Big Shot. It makes a smaller box than I was hoping. I wanted it for gift cards, but they won't fit. It would be good for small gifts or treats. It would be great for a Wedding favour.

Clean and Simple

I love this Medallion stamp from Stampin' Up! There are so many different ways to use it. I will be trying a few out over the next few days.

More This and That

This is one of those cards that could be used for many occasion. God's Beauty by Stampin' Up! is such a versitile set.

A Little This and That

Sometime the simple cards are the best. Twenty minutes and I had 6 of these made. Nice looking and inexpensive.

Wedding cards

This card was made for a young lady who was my flower girl 18 years ago. Boy do I feel old.

Wedding cards galore

The inside verse of this card says:
Marriage is a lot like a quilt,
It's a bunch of life's little pieces all
sewn together with love.
Congratulations on getting stitched!

Living Life

Just fooling around but I really like it.

Card for the Gents

I love the Asian Artistry (Hostess Set) from Stampin' Up! It has some great images that aren't too feminine.

Sparkly Fun

These pictures don't show how sparkly these card are. The coloured circles are covered with irridescent ice embossing powder. I wanted some cards that were bright and cheerful.

Military Thank You

This card was made for a friend's husband who is going to receive the Military Medal of Valor for his bravery in Afghanistan. We are all so very proud of him and all our soldiers overseas.

Busy Day

I had a very productive day. Really trying to create lots of cards for my bundles that I'm selling. I've renovated my workspace. Took it out of the basement and put it upstairs. A small space but a lot more natural light. I don't feel as those that I'm in a dungeon anymore.
