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.

February Stamp classes & Projects

Check out the February 2011 class projects, larger photos below. Be sure to check out the class dates for classes in February. This card features the Flower Burst emblosslet that embosses and punches out at the same time. With a dauber just add a center and way you go to one simple card. I'd suggest cutting a strip of white or any color about 2" by 11" and then just place the strip in the embosslet and keep doing this til you use up the strip. Much easier and more efficient.

The class schedule is on my Stampin Up website

This card, #2 features "Upsy Daisy" stamp set. There are over 3,000 ideas using this card on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ It's a great set for an easy card, especially if you only have one stamp pad. Oh my gosh who only has one stamp pad color.

The pink card is a gate fold card with a twist. All the cards were cased and then tweaked to what I had on hand.

Several folks have ask for sizes. Cut your normal size card, ie 5.5 x 8.5. Then on the short ends, score at 2 1/8" from each end. The white pieces are 4 x 1 7/8". I did emboss the white pieces with the polka dot embossing folder or plate.

Do you know of someone who might like some girl time. Tell them about the stamp classes. Seating is limited.

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.
