So Exciting!


I was honored to be selected as a speaker for On Stage - Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Center!

I was challenged to share how I run my business as well as share the Graceful Glass Suite with the audience.  I created twenty projects with the set and found it so much fun to play with!  I will posting quite a few of the samples on my blog in the near future.  Some I am saving for my free open house, Product Purchase Class as well as Coffee and a Card.  The first I will post are my 3D samples.  The first of which I forgot to bring to On Stage, so this is my first time sharing it!  The second uses the acetate boxes!

Wowza! I Just Colored the Petal Passion DSP!!

I will be honest!  I am not crazy about coloring!  But I think I can be converted after I used the blender pens to color this black and white DSP.  This first picture is a card made with the Petal Palette stamp set and Petal Passion DSP.

THEN I colored it with our blender pens and embellished it the same way! WOW!

The blender pens have been so popular and are sold out BUT, they will be available sometime this summer so watch for them after the new catalog comes out!

Petal Palette is My New Favorite Set!

I have been playing around with this bundle and can't stop making cards!  This card took a few minutes to design!  I am offering a class on Monday, April 9th at noon or 5 with this bundle.  I love it!  Pair it with the DSP and you can have dozens of cards in minutes.  I just decided to have my customers make SIX cards at the class since this set is so much fun to play with!  That is two extra!  We will not be featuring this card in class, but we will be making two cards with NEW paper engineered folds that are sure to WOW whoever receives them!

Cannot make this date?  Or want to do a class in the mail?  Contact me and I will give you the details!  Click on the TAMS code below for directions!

I Love This Designer's Series Paper!!!

My first love is anything with a heart on it.  My favorite aunt and uncle were George and Lucy Hart.  Every time I find something with a heart on it, it reminds me of these special people.  My second love is anything shiny!  So when I first saw this gold embellished DSP, I was immediately in love!  

Today I am sharing my Valentine I sent out this year.  It combines my two favorite things! Hearts and shiny things!    The gold foil, gold Embossing powder, gold embellished DSP and heart dies make a beautiful card with little effort.  Almost all of the papers in this packet can be interchanged to create equally beautiful projects.  Below are two examples of the same card using different versions of the papers.  Take the Valentine sentiment out and this could be a wedding, anniversary or birthday card for someone you love!

IMG_2136The gold on gold heart creates a stunning focal point.  The card is cut 4 1/4 by 11 inches.  Then it is scored at 4  1/4, 7 and 9 3/4 inches.  I used Calypso Coral and Rich Raspberry ink to create the layered sentiment.  The inside is created by layering coordinating papers leaving one section open for the sentiment.  Enjoy this clever and quick paper engineered fold!

Happy Valentine's Day!

...and more chocolate!  I love how the Giradelli chocolates come in all kinds of colors to coordinate with our Designer's Series Papers!  I also love to emboss gold on gold and silver on silver!  It is just stunning!  These are treats we made in our Valentine's class.  I cannot wait to leave them as surprises at my mom's senior living complex.  Nothing better than finding a little treat outside your door to brighten up your day!
