Feb 10 – Waterfront Property

Do you ever think about all the choices we have in life? If someone said to you they were going to give you Waterfront property, what would that mean to you? What would your Waterfront vision be? A Mountain Stream, Luscious Waterfall, Rushing River, Crystal Lake, Ocean Beach front, or a simple Retention Pond in a neighborhood?

Life is full of choices and the new Waterfront Stamp set gives you so many! I have created two samples: One mountain scene and one beach scene. Again sticking with my simple card ideas these are quick and easy, yet look so pretty!

Only 5 More days of Trivia. Have you been able to answer the questions? I know some of you have looked at the blog but have not responded! Don’t miss out! Email [email protected] with your guess!

It’s so great that you can simply change a few colors or change the orientation and you get another great card!

 

Feb 9 – Bubble Over Valentine

Today’s card is a cute twist on a Valentine’s Card using the Bubble Over Stamp set.   This is kind of an out of the box take on this stamp set because the set itself does not have a Valentine theme.   However the Bubble and Fizz Designer Paper which is one of the items you can earn during Sale-A-Bration has a really cute sheet of Heart Paper that makes the perfect Valentine!   This would also make a cute Anniversary or Birthday card!

Paper Pumpkin Cards Part 2

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Our focus this weekend was to take down the rest of Christmas, which lead yet another new layout for my studio. Someday I will get it right or get a new house… LOL As you have noticed I missed Monday… Oh, well life happens so you get a blog on Tuesday instead! As promised on Friday today’s Blog is a follow up on my Paper Pumpkin Party event so I am lovingly calling today Paper Pumpkin Cards Part 2, which will focus on my Altered Cards!

Also don’t forget Sale-A-Bration started last week! This is a great time to get started with stamping as a new craft or as a customer lovingly said “add to her collection of stamps!” I will go into more detail this week on just how this program works and why you want to be a part of the fun!

On The Eighth Day

Happy Eighth day of Christmas we are Counting.

This week is when you start hearing folks do the count down. So many days until school Is out, work Is over, shopping days, days until so and so arrives, baking days, and days until Santa comes. No matter what we are counting down we need to find peace and joy in the season.

Yesterday’s Trivia was about the song Silent Night – a classic and loved Christmas song that came from a need for music when the organ was broken on Christmas Eve. It is one of my very favorite songs at Christmas. Some of my other favorites are Oh’ Christmas Tree, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, Here Come’s Santa Claus and White Christmas. All very simple and classic like the cute little projects today!
