Gift Card Holder

Yesterday at our December Stamp Camp with the great Angie Jarman, we made some pretty cool projects. My favorite one is this gift card holder. It is very simple to make and you just slide the ribbon off, flip it open and put the gift card in the pocket.Pretty neat, huh? I love the colors in this one and you can make to fit any occasion.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day and a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Hello! This is the card I made for Christmas this year - 40 of them! I first made one like it at a stamp camp last year and fell in love with it! It has edge-punching, embossing, braying and cool ribbon and I love how they turned out! At the stamp camp for November, we made some other cool cards. I will post them soon! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a GREAT day!

Stamp Camp CASE

Hello! This is my take on a card we made at our October Stamp Camp. There was a fall leaf on the original and I like it better this way - clean and simple!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!

World Card Making Day

Hello! My daughter Dawn was here visiting from Tacoma, WA on October 1st, which also happened to be World Card Making Day. We made two of these cards each that morning and are very pleased with them. I made one a few years ago at a stamp camp and thought it was worth making again.
We had a GREAT visit and I am going to Washington in November for a week. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Very Sad News

I've been away from my blog for a long time now. On April 17, 2011, my dear husband lost his battle with brain cancer. I have had a rough time dealing with his death and I am trying to get back into a somewhat normal routine. Please be patient with me - I hope to be posting again soon.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Valentine's Day

Hello! This is one of the cards I made for my daughters for Valentine's Day. I just love this little stamp set from Stampin' Up. The little bunny is so CUTE! I also used my new Martha Stewart heart border punch - I love it! I colored the bubbles with markers and added a touch of glassy looking stuff from Close To My Heart.
I know I haven't blogged much lately, but we have had quite a few appointments due to my husband's cancer treatments and tests. I try to escape to my Studio upstairs whenever I can because it really relaxes me to get creative, but I don't always find the time. I will try to post more often in the future.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a GREAT day!

Another Recipe Page

Hello! Today I am posting another 6"x6" recipe page I made for the cookbook from The Inky Fingers group of friends. The theme was Christmas recipes and I thought this one was perfect because the red raspberries remind me of a Christmas dessert. My daughter made the recipe and took it to the party and everyone liked it.
I picked out the paper I wanted to use and added some red rhinestones to some of the holly berries. I hope you try the recipe and enjoy it as much as we do!

Thanks for stopping by today!
