About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in '76. I love meeting new people so hope you 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 '01. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I teach Stamp Classes in my stamp room and would love to meet you.

August 2011 stamp class projects

August 2011
Stamp class projects.

You just show up and have fun. Once you make the quilted card, you'll be looking for designer paper to cut up. What a reat way to use up scraps. I use glue sticks so you may prefer your own adhesive.

While I have 2 cards shown here for the faux quilted card, we are making the green on Concord Crush one.

Faux Quilted Card
Cardstock: Concord Crush with Pear Pizzaz layered on top.
2 pieces of Black cardstock 2.5 x 2.5" make up the backing to hold the square pieces. Designer paper, double sided, 1" square x 8.
Stamp Sets: Word Play, Vintage Vogue for the flower
Accessories: Buttons, glue dots, snips to cut out the flower.
Ink: Concord Crush.

Just another version of the same card.

"Cherry Blossoms" I struggled with which one I liked best.

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.
