School Days


Stampin' Up!s Storytime Designer Series Paper was the inspiration for this layout and provided the letters for the blocks, as well as the ruler, the alphabet strip, and some of the title letters.

A quick stamp of the Woodgrain background stamp on the blocks and some sponging of the edges makes them look like treasured toys. See the little sling shot? It's a twig that my husband brought me from our backyard with some Baker's Twine tied on!

Love the pinwheel? Learn how to make it in my short Video Tutorial from last week!

The ledge of the chalkboard is actually propped up on some Stampin' Dimensionals so that the eraser and pieces of chalk have a place to rest. The yo-yo is made from chipboard covered in Riding Hood Red card stock and cut with the Circles #2 Big Shot Die.

So Worth the Wait


Quickly and easily design and create cards using My Digital Studio 2, Stampin' Up!s digital software! This card is referred to as a "hybrid" card because it uses both digital images and hand created components.

The images on the blocks were colored, resized, and printed using My Digital Studio, then punched out using a 1" square punch. Use My Digital Studio to transform the card from pink to blue in seconds!

The sentiment was hand-stamped in Soft Suede ink, then colored in with a Stampin' Write Marker in Marina Mist or Pretty in Pink.

Technique Tip:
Layout all of your squares on your card front before adhering any of them. This allows for perfect placement and ensures you won't have two of the same image in close proximity.

A Gift Set That's Out of this World!

A matching gift bag and card make any present more fun to give and to receive! This darling set is perfect for a boy's birthday.

The bold colors against the Basic Black card stock are achieved using Stampin' Up!s colored embossing powders and VersaMark ink.

For the bag, some quick stamping with our Classic Ink pads is all it takes!

The space traveler is stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock and attached behind the card front using some Stampin' Dimensionals. I used Paper Snips to cut out the window, but if I had stamped closer to the edge of the card stock, a 1 1/4" Circle Punch would have done the trick.

Technique Tip:
When using different colors of embossing powder, it's important to heat set each stamped image before stamping the next one. A good rub with the Embossing Buddy will keep the powder from sticking to the previously embossed areas.

A Card for a Princess


This weekend we celebrated the birthday of a sweet three year old. She's the daughter of my friend and Juicy Stamper downline, Crystal Frederick of Craft Therapy with Crystal.

They had recently been to Disney World, so I thought a princess themed gift and card were appropriate.

my inspiration


Technique Tips:
A quick trim of the Happy Birthday banner from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set using my Paper Snips makes it the perfect size to mat onto a Bitty Banner Framelit in Red Glimmer Paper.

Love that sparkly Pacific Point card stock? The effect is achieved using Versamark Ink and Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Watch my Video Tutorial this Friday to see how!

Video Tutorial: Pinwheel Card

Learn how to make a quick and easy pinwheel in today's video tutorial!



The colors in the Patio Party Designer Series Paper work for both men and women.

I just can't get enough of those cute little In Color Dahlias!

Technique Tip:
I used part of a bamboo skewer for the post of my pinwheel. For smaller pinwheels, try a toothpick.

Product Tip:
The adorable ric-rac at the bottom of the card was made with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot. It works on fabric too!
