Next post I’ll show you the pages I made for our 2008 convention swap. See you soon!

Card Organizer


This is a card organizer I made at my upline’s class. Cool huh? Now I can have all my cards in one place and know where they are! Do you want to be organized? You can do it by having your birthday, get well, thank you and anniversary cards available and in once place. Each page has it own calendar to write your family and friends birthdays and a place for the card. You’ll never forget a birthday or anniversary again! Come join us to make this card organizer on July 18th. Visit my Stampin’ Up! website for more details. Happy Stamping!

I just love this stamp set. If you like it too, give me a call or send me an email to place your order. This stamp set will no longer be available after June 30th. Look at the little bee, isn’t he so cute? If you look closer, you will see a 3-D effect on the flower. To get this effect, you stamp the flower three times. Stamp your main image on your cardstock for your card. Now stamp just the flower part (no stem) two more times on another piece of cardstock. Cut out the whole flower first and lay it on top of the stamped flower image, then cut out a smaller part of the flower to lay on top of the one you just cut. To get this 3-D effect, it is best to use Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stampin’ Dimensionals are double-sided foam mounts. Tip: An easy way to get the paper off the back of a dimensionals is to make a dent in the dimensional by sticking the tip of your fingernail in the center and it will be easier to pull off.

Ink: River Rock, Summer Sun, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black
Accessories: Dimensionals, Black Gingham Ribbon, Basic Black Brads, 1/16” handheld punch, photo corner punch, aqua painter






I’ve seen so many blogs and have many friends blogging. I’ve always wanted to know “how to be a blogger”. I recently started blogging, thanks to a coworker’s help, and must say it is fun, but time consuming. I do love it, but I often forget to post. I found a Barnes and Noble free Quamut newsletter article about blogging. If you’ve wanted to learn how to blog too, click here to learn more.

Fresh Cuts

This is my first Fresh Cut Note card I made. These die cut note cards come in a pack of 15 including envelopes. When you punch out the petals – save them for leaves on another project! How cool is that. Thank you for looking today!
