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.

Make use of those scraps

This is one of the cards made at the Stamp
Club Party, 5/4/10. Below are just some
other ideas of how to change it up a bit. Of course there were scraps of cardstock as well as designer paper to be put to use in other ways.

Jus another color combo.

Don't toss out those scraps. I must say it does help to get creative and just make up some cards with those pieces and maybe later go in and add your stamped items. Then you are 1/2 there when you need a card.

Here I tucked in Trendy Trees and even used some of the tree tops as background.

This card uses some of the scraps left over from the other cards. Get creative girls. This card would have been just as interesting using lots of the scraps and a button or two.

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.
