In case you are wondering where I have been… well today I am celebrating my birthday! I am thanking God for giving me another year…. and to have the energy for a  brand new craft room! Yeah! my hubby said I could have a brand new craft room for my birthday so I have been working on clearing my entire room (with stuff I have accumulated for the last 12 years in it!). My mom, sister Angie and husband have all been helping for the last two weeks. I should have it ready by next week so I can start posting more projects.

Here are some pictures of the flowers I got from my husband and my parents today.

Thanks for stopping by and I promise I will make a video on the makeover 🙂

Hi everybody! As yo can see on my blog now I have a Stampin’ Up logo to the right of this post…. That is right… I am now a Stampin Up Demonstrator.  I am very excited because this is my first Stampin Up project as a demonstrator.

My goal is to show you how to use you Stampin products in conjunction with whatever other products you may already have.

Today I am making this quick and simple get well card for my friend who is recovering from breast cancer surgery. I hope she cheers up a bit. Please help me pray for Katie so that she may heal soon.

The card is A2 in size. The papers used are: Raspberry Ripple, Poolparty and Whisper white. Stamps sets: Petite Pairs and A Fitting Occasion. Ink: Calypso coral and Old olive. Punch: Petite label. Flower: By LDM Creations store. Cuttlebug embossing folder. ATG glue and glue dots.

Raspberry ripple cut 4 1/2 x 11 and folded in half. Pool party cut at 4 3/8 x 5. Whisper white cut at 4 x 4 3/8 (all inches). Strip cut at 1/2″ by 4″.

Keep watching for more great ideas to come. I have bought a lot of goodies and will be making fun stuff.

I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas! I want to give Jesus thanks for all the blessings he has given us all this year.

I am thankful for my beautiful family and health. May the Lord bless your family now and always……

This is the manger scene at your church today after the Christmas Eve service.  We had a packed church… Hope you go to your local church and celebrate with us the greatest miracle of all.

Hi there! I hope you are getting ready for your holidays. I celebrate Christmas so I decided to do a “wrap” for my Christmas photo cards. I found this website that has this free cityscape SVG files that I used. Essentially what I did was use my ECAL program and welded the desired background to two rectangles. Here is a screenshot:

 

My machine did the rest

For the marquis I used my Storybook cricut cartridge and used the Accent Blackout feature of the image found on page 51. I cut it at 4.25″ wide x 3″ tall.

The stamp is from Ink-a- Doodle and the red ink is from Color Box. I used Stamping Up shimmer mist to give the red paper sparkle. The red paper is from Recollections at Michaels.

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!
