About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

March 09 class projects

Lace card used the new lace edge scallop border punch. The front of the card is rolled with the jumbo wheel with dots and then rolled the other direction for a plaid effect. Love that wheel. Cut 1/2" off the front of the card on the side. One piece of lace is inside the card with the 1/2" strip covering where it's glued. The other lace one has a portion run thru the crimper (love that crimper) and it's glued to the front of the card. Congratulations is from the new Congrats SAB set. Whisper White for lflower is 2.5 x 4. Regal Rose, 2 5/8 x 4.25. Certainly Celery is 2 3/4 x 4.5. White for lace is about 2" x 5.5 if you want to crimp. Card is Almost Amethyst.

Snail card uses Garden Whimsy. How cute he is and he'd be a great man card. I used Kiwi for the green. I also used Pocket Silhouettes for the grass. Green is 2 1/4 x 5 1/2.

This card is from SAB mini catalog but in different colors. Love the piercing below the words. Such a simple card and what a great way to use up some of those scraps. Posted by Picasa

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
