Sale-a-Bration stamp set so you can’t buy it but you can get it as your free gift with a $50 order through March 31st.) It’s just so big and lovely! Calypso Coral card base:…

Summer Fun Fold Card

By | Cards, One Sheet Wonder Cards, Techniques | One Comment

Since I live in Wisconsin popsicles are definitely a summer thing. Although spring is officially here now the weather hasn’t really gotten the memo. I’m looking forward to sunny days! Today I have a fold fun card idea for you to try. Of course you can grab any supplies you have, but I chose to use the Cool Treats stamp set and the Tasty Treats Paper for this one.

November 2016 Madison OnStage

By | Stampin' Up! Events | No Comments

So I started to write this post last November but I kept putting it off because I had so many pictures to share I just didn’t know where to start. Editing photos is not my idea of fun. I’d rather be stamping! As I’m now preparing to attend the next OnStage event in a couple weeks I decided it was time to get this done. So here’s what I did for you… I created a Pinterest Board! More on that in a minute. I had such a blast at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event in Madison, WI that I don’t even…
