I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator that is in love with stamping! In September of 2006 I was able to quit my "real" job. Ever since then, I have been enjoying every single minute of my "dream" job! I am lucky enough to have a finished basement that is totally dedicated to stamping and, of course, my computer. My basement has fondly been dubbed the "Rubber Room", and it is a place that is always full of fun and friends. I teach lots of classes, so be sure to check out my calendar and make some plans to attend one (or more).

I made this frame as part of my Holiday Bundle class. I liked it so much that I made a few more to give as gifts this holiday season. I used the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies, Red Foil Sheets and the Holiday Fancy Foil Designed Vellum from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog, and some of the Red Glimmer Paper from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I love the way it turned out! Also made a black and silver one in a floating frame. I will share that one tomorrow.
Ready to order? Give me a call or text me at 248-909-8016, and I will help you place your order.
The Stampin' Up! Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper is gorgeous, and for the first time ever I am using black for some of my Christmas cards. This card made by Mary Fish is so beautiful, and it is the inspiration for some of my cards this year. The foil gives it a very elegant and peaceful touch. Mary always lines her envelopes, and I love the "formal" look that presents to the card. For this card Mary uses the Sleigh Ride Edgelit Dies and the coordinating Jingle All the Way Stamp Set. Purchase those two items in a Bundle from the Holiday Catalog and save 15%! Her stars were made with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and the Gold Foil Paper. Love to get these wonderful SU! products? Just call or text me at (248) 909-8016, and I will help you place your order.
This week the Weekly Deals are all for the holidays! The wreath kit is my favorite because it makes a wonderful gift! The framelits make light work without having to "fussy cut" and the stamp set is perfect your holiday card making needs. Don't miss these deals or you will be very, very sad! Call or text me at 248-989-8016, and I will be happy to help you place your order!

Love this card made by Laurie Krauss with the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set. The wreath is watercolored and looks so soft! How do you like the non-traditional Christmas colors? Coordinating Framelits make the wreath easy to do with no "fussy cutting" and the Textured Embossing Folder she used adds a lot of depth to the card. Even the little staple for the sentiment is perfect. The added loopies with the Linen Thread is an awesome addition. This card has it all in my book!
I love the name of this stamp set "Sheltering Tree". It just seems so warm and cozy and comforting. This card was made by Jolene Harris, and I saw it posted by Julie Wadlinger. As November is the month of "thanks", I am posting this to say to all of my wonderful customers and friends, "I am Thankful for You!"
I love, love, love Stampin' Up! Punches and Framelits and I am so excited they are on sale. Can you say "whoop, whoop"? The two punches on sale this week, as well as the Framelits all match Stamp Sets in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. The doilies are in the Annual Catalog, but they coordinate so nicely with all of the gold and silver for the holiday season that you really need to get them for the holidays.

I think this card is totally adorable! It was made by Helen Greco using the Stampin' Up! Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Woodland Embossing Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I just love the scene. The little fawns are to cute!!

This card was made by Julie Davison, and she has a great video showing you the "folded corner" technique.Julie uses one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holida Catalog, Embellished Ornaments and the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. When you bundle the stamp set and the framelits, you save 15%; AND the framelits are so beautiful and make this a very quick card. The gold foil and gold embossing give this card a very rich and elegant look. Drop me a note, and I will be happy to help you place your order.

Winter Wishes is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog AND I love the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is a win-win card for me, and my "tweeked" version will be making an appearance at my next Holiday Stamp-a-Stack on November 30th. This card was made by Kimberly Van Diepen over at stampin' by the sea. You can order your very own Winter Wishes Stamp Set and Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 24/7 from my website HERE
Last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to attend a Creative Escape Weekend in Lansing with some great friends. We were spoiled all weekend by Ronda, Jane and Tamie. I signed up for lots of classes and had big fun! Tamie Ackerson had a class using the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper. I wasn't signed up for the class, but she had an extra packet and took pity on me and I got to join in. This is one of the cards we made. It was my first attempt at a diorama card, and she made it really, really easy!! It was so easy I feel like I could even do it again. I am thinking this would be a cool Holiday Stamp-a-Stack card. ORDER YOUR HOME FOR CHRISTMAS DSP HERE!
This is a great frame I saw at Ronda Wade's Creative Convention, and I fell in love! I had to make one for myself and then I NEEDED to make a few more for gifts!
