This card is for a good friend of mine who is getting married next weekend. It is inspired by their wedding invitation. I hope you enjoy the video! Please excuse the loopy behavior and congestion.

How Cute Is This?

Okay, so you might be thinking that these pictures do not display my best work. This card was made by my five year old daughter, who now calls herself a "crafter". When she saw me making the Sweet Centers card for my sister-in-law, she knew she had to make Aunt Kara one too! I have a whole box of scraps that she has free access to. She also has her very own tape runner. She cut up paper scraps and put this together for Aunt Kara and I just had to share it!
Can you see the A and the K for Aunt Kara?She even decorated the inside of the card.

I have to admit, it just thrills me that she shares a love for paper crafting!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be working on a video soon! I've been under the weather and am waiting until I feel a bit better!

Sneak Peek

Here is another sneak peek from the new Holiday Mini Catalog, available September 1st from Stampin Up!

This card was created using the new Serene Snowflakes stamp set, available in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Do you see all of the silver shimmer? It wasn't done using ink or embossing powder, but the new Shimmer Paint from Stampin Up! in Platinum. This card is perfect for Christmas cards or for all those after Christmas thank you notes!

This set also has a great image that I think can be used to create beautiful medallions.

Supplies--Stampin Up! Bordering Blue card stock, Stampin Up! Kraft card stock, Stampin Up! Basic Gray card stock, Stampin Up! Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, Stampin Up! Platinum Shimmer Paint, Stampin Up! Eyelet border punch.

Halloween Matchbox Treat

I just love 3D projects! Don't you? These are so much fun to make! They would make great teacher gifts or party favors! Just change the color of the card stock and the stamps to fit the occasion! The matchbox die is a Stampin Up! exclusive!

Enjoy! Don't forget to post your comments and rate my video! I love to read comments!

Truly Sprinkled With Glitter

I absolutely love this card! It's messy, but super fun and sparkly! If you've never used Heat and Stick powder before, you may want to try it out after you see this video!

For this card, I used Stampin Up! Kraft cardstock, Old Olive Designer Paper and some Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon. I also used a healthy portion of the Fine Cosmo Glitter in Pink from Stampin Up!

Enjoy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Just For Fun

I'm trying to have as much fun as I possibly can. The RN program is starting Monday and I just feel like I have to pack as much in as I possibly can.

If you know me at all, you know that I love coffee! You also have probably figured out that I love stamping! So I figured I would combine some of my favorite things and make a card!

I thought the perfect saying for this card would be "Hey Hot Stuff!" What would you put on it?
"Love you a Latte." "Thanks a Latte."

Also, I think this is the most perfect "bow" that I have ever done, so I just had to include a picture of it! (I am really good at tooting my own horn!)

Stampin Up Colors Used--Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa
Stampin Up Ribbon--Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
Stampin Up Inks--Close to Cocoa and Whisper White

Monogram Note Cards

My computer issues have been fixed! The guy that fixed my computer told me that he was "thrown for a loop by my issues." I told him that my husband feels like that everyday! I am grateful that I didn't lose any of my information, especially this video that I had ready to go.

I start the Registered Nursing program on Monday, so life is getting ready to get really crazy. I am just praying that God will give me the strength to keep up with everything!

I hope you enjoy today's video! I made these monogram note cards for my sister-in-law, Sommer, after she endured us being at her house for several days! I was waiting for her to get them in the mail before I posted the video!

Computer Issues

The Geek Squad is supposed to be here this morning to fix my computer issues. My desktop has gone down and until I get that fixed, my videos are in a black hole. I am hoping that they can recover the video that I already had edited and ready to post on my blog. Keep checking back! I hope to have some crafting inspiration for you soon!
