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.

October 2009 Class card #1

Well I love this card. I used Lovely Letters alphabet. Colors are Melon Mambo, Glorious Green, Whisper White. Punch out the letters with more white at the top. Once you glue the letters onto the green, using the double hole punch mark the holes on the N. Then with a clip stack all the layers, 8 layers of cardstock, keep letters straight and punch the two holes with the cropadile. Oh you got to love that funky tool. Viola, two punches and you are ready to go.

String the letters on silver cording (or ribbon would be great). Tape down the ends on the top of the colored piece which is under the flap.

Flap is part of the white card. Cut white at 8.5 x 5.5. Score the flap at 3 3/4" and fold down. Use the scallop border punch to do the edge. Stamp with anything. The colored piece just tucks up under the flap. This way you get two white cards from one sheet of cardstock. As for the colored piece you can get 3 pieces from one piece of cardstock. Think I cut it at 3 6/8. Well I love the close line dangling look. The tree is from Perfect Presentation, a retired set.

Break out those alphabets and get busy on your clothesline. Sure hope the girls will enjoy making this card.

P.S. It fits into a #10 business envelope. How cool is that.

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.
