Blendabilities and Fall Fest

Have you given the Blendabilities a try yet? They are so fun! I have been searching for different techniques and ideas to show my customers and today I've got a fun one to show you! 

This card features the Fall Fest stamp set, which is a solid image. But aren't Blendabilities for "coloring in" you might be asking? Well, yes, but there is a plethora of other ideas like coloring on solid embossed images! I embossed the pumpkins in Whisper White on  Early Espresso Cardstock and hen used the Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities to color them! Fun, right?
I also colored one of the Wooded Accent leaves with the Mocha Blendabilities. 
You can check out all the Blendabilities on my site here.

Fall Craft Fairs

Hi everbody! I am late posting today because I am super busy putting the finishing touches on my set up for several upcoming Craft Fairs. 

This Saturday is my first one. If you live in the San Antonio area, come see me at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Country Market on 1560. I will be there 9-3. (Rain or shine!!)
Right now, I have my booth set up in my garage so I can see exactly what I need to take and not take! And, it will make set up quick on Saturday if I already know what goes where! 

I've made some simple things to sell like these little Chcilit Gum Halloween Treats.

I'm offering some gift tags, Halloween Candy holders and covered notebooks. 

 I also made up some of these cute Curvy Keepsake Pumpkins. Yummy candy inside!
These little gems are Halloween Hand Sanitizers. I will have a video coming up next week on these. 

Boo Bags. I used MDS Seasonal Snapshot Download to make the tags. 

I'm also selling retired product! But, selling isn't really the right term. I'm giving it away with new product orders! 

If you are a current customer, you can take advantage of this as well! You have to come by and see me and it only applies to orders place that day at the market. (And yes, I see my typos...Grrr!)

Awesome deal right? Come by early for the best selection! 

And of course, I am selling the plethora of cards I have made! 
Stay tuned for more details about the projects. I will get to them in the coming weeks, I promise!!

Simply Beautiful


My Simply Beautiful Card Class is normally the second Thursday of each month. This month, I've had to push it out a week because of my kids' school Open House. So, the next Simply Beautiful Card Class will be 
Thursday, September 18 from 6-8 PM. 

I've also decided to offer this class TO GO! Scroll down for details! 

This adorable Four Feathers card was inspired by a card created by the amazing Amy O'Neill  I used the "Gracias" stamp instead of the "Thank You" because 1. I love it, 2. Here in San Antonio, we say "gracias" as much as we say thank you!.
 This is one of the EIGHT cards we will make next Thursday.

This month, I am going to offer this class To Go
In order to get these cards (all eight!) in the mail from me is to place a $35 order between today and Tuesday, September 16. Those who attend my class in person get the cards for free if they place a minimum order, so I thought I would offer it to you, my online customers as well! 

Once you place your order, email me and let me know it was for this class and I will add you to the To Go list. The card packs will mail out next Friday.

 If you live in the San Antonio area, please email me to RSVP so I will have enough materials for you as well! 

RSVP deadline is September 16.

Something for Baby (HSS194)

Hello everyone! It's Tuesday and that means another Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge! And, when I went to upload mine last night to the HSS site I realized I did the WRONG challenge... Sigh... I wish I could say it ws the first time. But it's not. So, this morning, I quickly got my project made so now it's all good. And now, I'm well prepared because I have the NEXT challenge ready to go! LOL! 


I love these colors and I went the obvious route, baby boy colors. One of my friends and long time colleague (not to mention to of my daughter's preschool teachers) is having a baby shower next week. So, I needed a special card for her and her new little baby boy! 

I just love this little onseie with tie from the Something for Baby set. Adorable! And, it has matching Framelits! Even better!! I created the polkadot background once again with my Polka Dot Mask and Hello Honey Stampin' Write Marker. You can see my video on this technique here. 

If you would like to play along with us at HSS this week, please hop over and check out the other designers and link up your blog!

Merry Everything Treat (Video)

Hello everyone! I have another video for you today! Are you guys liking the videos? I have a new mount for my phony that permanently stays over my desk and that makes creating videos SO much easier! No preparation needed, just film when the inspiration hits me! 

I made these cute and VERY easy little treats as a swap for my Stamp Club this last week. I think I need to make some more because they are super easy and so very cute. You could use them for any season since this stamp set has a stamp for each of the upcoming holidays! 

It really is simple to make. It uses two punches, a Blendability Marker and a few scraps of DSP! 


Thanks for stopping by today! 
Remember, I am putting together a new group of Stamp Club To Go members!

September Stamp Club

This weekend, I hosted my Stamp Club groups in my home. We made three fun projects, each featuring new products from the Holiday Catalog!

First up is an invitation that used the Holiday Invitation and Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp sets. 
 
Four our Scrapbook Page, we used the Fourth Feathers bundle.

 I've also started giving them a card option as many of my stamp club members aren't scrapbookers.

And last, my favorite, this little Curvy Keepsake Box "pumpkin."


Did you know that I have many Long Distance Stamp Club Members? They place their $25 minimum order each month and I mail them these three projects! One month, they even get to collect Stamp Club benefits! If you would like to join a Stamp Club to Go group, I have a waiting list forming right now! As soon as I get six new members, that group will begin. If you are interested in joining, please email me

Have a GREAT Sunday!
