Can you believe I have posted something every day for over a week. I’ll try to keep it up, although some days are pretty tough being a newbie to the blogging world.


I just can’t get enough of this set. I just love pink and black together, how about you? This is a card I just finished to take as a swap for the 2008 Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City.

Great scrapbooking idea!

Strawberry Flip-Up Card

Don’t you just love this designer series paper? It’s called Summer Picnic. Wouldn’t you love to be on a picnic now eating strawberries? I am crazy over strawberries, real or fake! Speaking of strawberries, isn’t it time to go strawberry picking? Well, if you’d rather not go strawberry picking how about making a strawberry birthday card for someone special? Take a look at this card. It is very hard to see, but the card flips up. Just raise the strawberry up and write your birthday message. Want to know how I got the strawberry two different colors? By using Stampin’ Up! Markers. Just color the rubber stamp with the markers. Color the stem with old olive and then color the strawberry with real red, blow (or huff) on the stamp to remoisten the ink and stamp your image. Viola! Your white dots appear magically!

Stamp Set: Tart & Tangy, Hugs & Wishes

Happy Heart Day

Do you have “Happy Heart Day?” This is another swap card I designed. Are you wondering what a swap is? It is when a demonstrator forms a group of demonstrators who want to exchange cards. This way we do not have to come up with all of the card designs for our workshops. We design and make a certain number of our card and then we swap our cards with each other. We share our ideas! If you think you may be interested in joining my team, email me now. There is a great demonstrator special going on for the month of May.

Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, Almost Amethyst, Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Three for You Punch, Real Red and Certainly Celery Markers
