Stampin' Time at the Titusville Art League!

The Art League just keeps looking better and better, thanks to Linda Krupp and her faithful crew!!!
We met there yesterday with the TAL stampers to create our cards of the week, (email the words good reader to me to claim a price!)"Wondrous Wreath" and "Ice Cream!!"
Had a wonderful time and then had lunch together at Cafe' Chocolate in the quaint and fun area of downtown Titusville.
Thank you, gals for a fun day!!





Contact me to join this terrific group of stampers.  We meet 2 Thursdays a month!  Fun all of the time!!

Wondrous Wreath and Ice Cream Sundaes!!!

 Beautiful!!  3-step stampin' allowed us to create these lovely wreaths and the framelits allowed us to create a beautiful thinlit "Joy" or "Noel" in brushed gold and a beautiful glitter paper red bow.
 AM Girls!

 Loved the ice cream (Thank you, Cupcake Builder punch!!) Thanks to Bea for the inspiration card!  So many flavors/colors are possibilites!  (But....they all make me want ice cream!!!)  :-)
 Afternoon Gals!

Delicious colors!!  Thank you, Gals and Happy Stampin'!!

Unite and Excite Stampin' Up Event!

Wow!  What a fun time, full of fun and inspiration, at the Unite and Excite Event held in Sarasota last Saturday am.  Hubby and I drove over bright and early and he hit golf balls with his #2 son while I was having Demo fun!!

Below are some pix I brought back of some of the displays.  Keep scrolling and you'll see our fearless leader for the day, Debbie Moczek, dancing to "This Girl is On Fire"!  What a fun way to start the meeting!!  We had roundtable discussions, received adorable favors (Stampin' Up of course!) and received our own "Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit" as a departing gift!  (Worth more than our registration fees!!!  Awesome!  Enjoy the pix and plan to attend with me as one of my Demo Team members next time!!

Happy Stampin' Hugs!

A Luv-eh-ly Bunch of Halloween Pop Up Explosion Cards With SOS & the TAL Stampers!!

Hi, Stampers!

What a great way to celebrate the premiere of the Stampin' Up Fall and Holiday Catalog!!  We used the stamp sets "Bite Me" and "Tee-Hee-Hee", along with the best little alpha framelits to create these great projects!  I loved everybody's extra little unique touches!  You can tell that we're using LOTS of products and making quite a mess but we had so much fun and the results, I'm sure you'll agree, were fabulous!  Love my stamping groups!!!
Thank you, everyone!!!  I feel happy all over again just looking at your pictures!!!

Ornamental Pine and For All Things at the Art Gallery



Hey Stampers!

The weeks just roll by, don't they!  I love my time with my stamping groups!  They truly bring me happiness and motivation to create!!

Here are this past Monday's cards at the Art Gallery of Viera.  I cased the basic idea from Dawn Olchefske for the Ornamental Pine card.  I, however, chose the background frame and gold ink highlights for our "snow" and pinecones.  I love these clear crisp stamps!  The beautiful ornament stamp inside, along with the "Christmas Wishes" were the finishing touches for the card.  So many wonderful choices for pretty envelopes too!!

Oh yes!  There is always fun, fun, fun!!


This card is really simple!  I love the golden "shadows".  This is such a pretty effect, achieved by cutting our 4 1/2" Very Vanilla cardstock into 3-- 1 1/2" sections.
Thank you so much for the Labor Day fun, ladies!!

Addicted To the Gift Box Punch Board!

Hello, Stampers!!

The fear of the unknown has been hovering over me!!  Although I got to use the gift box punch board at Convention, I wasn't sure if I could manage on my own.  However after a quick video tutorial (There are several on YouTube.), I struck out on my own.  

Voila!  After I had made the first box (You actually do the same things 4 times) I had it and so will you.  There are a nice variety of sized boxes and like the envelope punch board, dimensions and scoring places are clearly listed!  I used the new heavier cardstock for some of the boxes but I found that DSP is fabulous too!

I hate to stop making boxes today but I need to get next weeks sample cards ready!!!  I have had so much fun and I made most of them in front of the television!

So, sign up for our workshop on Sept. 17, from 1:30 pm-3:30 pm at the Gallery (deadline for signup is Sept. 5) and you will be an expert in 5 minutes too!!!!  Be the  first to email the words punch board to me and receive an $8 discount on the class or, if you don't care to attend, you'll receive 2 of my completed gift boxes.  All supplies for the boxes and tags and your own personal punch board are included in the $28 price.

Happy Stampin' Hugs,
