Feb 4 – Super Bowl Sunday?

Happy Sunday! For many today is a day full of lots of excitement, because it’s Super Bowl Sunday! However, for our household we are not much into Football so today is a day to Praise God, hang out with friends and to rejuvenate!

I wanted you all to know that I am not planning on giving you 14 days of Valentine’s cards! I will be mixing it up and doing various projects. So today’s Projects are Quick and Easy Cards that are a quiet Celebration of Faith!

I just love our Note Card sets in both sizes and our Designer Series Paper Stacks are a great addition when creating these quick cards. These are great when you need a quick set of cards for yourself, or when you want to design a set of cards as a gift!



Feb 3 – Altered Paper Pumpkin Projects

Happy Saturday. I hope you had a great Friday night. I sure did! Last night was my monthly Paper Pumpkin Party and we did some fun Altered Paper Pumpkin projects that I want to share with you!

Below are the finished projects right from the kit. This month’s Kit is super cute. The Cards open at a slight angle and the White Stamped card is an insert. Not only are these cute cards, they also have a Bonus feature. Because of how they open you can also just use them as a Gift Card holder!


When I create the Altered Paper Pumpkin Projects – I use a combination of the items in that month’s kit and a few items that I add for my customers.

Last night we made 4 items – A cute Valentine’s treat that would be perfect for children to use as favors for their friends, a treat box/mini gift card set, and a greeting card.

Feb 1 – Miss Me Valentine?

Miss Me Valentine? I am back and ready to do 14 days of Blogs all about Valentine’s and things associated with it. Much like my 12 Days of Christmas my Valentine Blogs are going to contain project ideas, a daily Trivia question and a Fun Fact about Valentine’s. I am once again going to be giving away prizes at the end of the 14 days. However, this time the prizes will be Greeting Cards I have designed! I hope this will encourage everyone who follows my Blog to play along even if you are not (Yet) a stampers!

Submit your Trivia answers to [email protected] daily to be entered in the drawing. I will post the correct answer on each following day’s Blog, so be sure to get your guesses before Midnight each day! At the end of the 14 Days I will draw 14 entries. Which means you could win more than one Greeting Card!


Today’s Project is this Wonderful Little Gift Box!
