Let’s Go Shopping – info

As you can see, these were really fun to make! Of course book stores are my favorite. Every night I read for at LEAST 2 hours. Because I love to read, book stores make me calm and happy. However, since I got Carpal Tunnel I am not able to buy actual books anymore. Therefore I get all my books on Kindle. I prop my book up and just have to turn pages! Luckily I am able to get most of my books from the library. So easy to download! For the first card I love the look of the Granny Apple Green behind the store, it really makes the store pop, don’t you think?! As for the 2nd card, I love that it isn’t a full card like you would normally see. This fold really adds to this fun card!

FOUR days left to get a Bonus!

Stampin’ Up! is having Bonus Days right now! Only for July, so you have 4 days left to be able to get a discount next month! Basically you get a bonus for every $50 you spend.

Because there are 16 projects in this PDF you will LOVE IT!!

Three very different WOW cards!

Using Sweet & Precious stamp set

Hey Guys, today I am offering Three very different WOW cards!! If you missed it, click here to see it! For those who have been at a class with me, you might know the Sloth story. Let me tell those of you who haven’t been live with me….Both my sisters with their spouses and Howie and I played a game called The Newlywed Game years ago. All of us had been married a while and thought this would be fun. A question came up “What animal would your Mother in Law be?” The guys had to answer, and my sisters and I thought this should be interesting! My oldest sisters’ hubby answered an Owl, since she is so smart. The youngest sisters’ hubby answered A Pug (what!??), so it was Howie’s turn. Indeed, my husband answered a Sloth, because she is so slow. Yikes!!

I got my sense of Humor from my Mom

Now my mom had survived lung cancer and had half a lung removed. So her health wasn’t the best. Every time the family would meet up in CA all the ladies would go to a Tea Room. We’re sitting at the table and I thought I would tell my mom all about the answers her Son-in-Laws said. Immediately she comes up with a plan, to get revenge.

When we got back to the house where everyone was, she would exclaim that she wasn’t feeling well and lay down on the couch. So, of course we didn’t know the rest of her plan but we went with it. Once she sighs and lays down on the couch all the guys come into the room to be sure she is ok. She says “I’m feeling very…….’slothlike'”. My husband Howie’s face goes white, and he is in shock with his mouth wide open. Then of course he him haws around and says it’s because you are so smart that I said that! Sloths are slow, and they have to be smart to survive! 🙂 Ever since that time my family has loved Sloths! Why she picked on the Sloth and not the Pug, tells me she knew Howie would get a kick out of it!

Three very different WOW cards! A fancy fold

Three very different WOW cards! This is the Fancy Fold

Now for the Technique

As seen above I shared the Fancy fold first, even though it’s not first on my video. Of course, I HAD to share the story of why Sloth’s are special to me. Three very different WOW cards! I’ve shown you the Fancy fold, now here is the technique! Basically I am a sucker for techniques and this is one of my favorites! Since I have never seen the Northern Lights, I have to make a card with one!

Three very different WOW cards!  This is the technique

As can be seen on the inside, below….I used ANOTHER technique to make a bookmark! Stampin’ Up! has a new Tool for our Take your Pick tool, and it’s a rotary perforated tool that lets me make a bookmark that can be torn out by the recipient!! Cool, right?!!

In this case, if you look closely you can see where the bookmark will tear off! Obviously you will want to send this to someone who enjoys reading!!

Three very different WOW cards!

So, now we are on to the Cute one!! I love Giraffe, they are my favorite wild animal and I have a few Giraffe items around my house. Chiefly, I have always loved them, but I visited my Daughter in MN and got to hand feed one! Of course that would sell anyone on why these animals are so special!

Three very different WOW cards! This is the CUTE card!

Want a surprise next month?

As always SU! is always surprising us with great deals!! Indeed they are having Bonus Days in the month of July! What does this mean? Overall, it means for every $50 you spend you will get a coupon for $5 (redeemable in August), which means that NEXT month you will get a discount! Of course this goes along with MY special, so in fact you get TWO specials for the one purchase!! Every month I offer a NEW PDF for those who purchase from my OnLine Store, this PDF has 16 projects with step by step tutorials along with great pic’s! This is especially a good deal! Surely you know that I would love to be YOUR SU! Demo!! It would definitely make my day! 🙂

Finally

For the most part I want to thank you for taking time out and visiting me! I hope you like the cards I showed, of course you will be getting the free PDF of all the cards I show on my videos if you are signed up for my Newsletter! Sign up and you TOO will be getting all my free PDF’s!! Thank you so much for visiting, I would love for you to join me for a Live sometime so I can really talk with you!

Are you an Avid Stamper?

Certainly, as you can see, I am! Basically for me to make an easy card, you would think it would be easy, but NO! Chiefly, It’s super hard for me to do simple. Of course when I started stamping, simple was easier, but once I got into it I want to challenge myself, don’t you? Furthermore I want YOU to tell me what you would like to see! Of course, IF you want me to do simpler, I can try! 🙂 Moreover if you want me to tackle a different fold/technique let me know and I will do a video so you can make it too!

Techniques & Fancy Folds!

Problem Solved!

Hey Guys!, today I have Techniques & Fancy Folds along with Solving problems! Have you ever tried to color something you already Embossed with Powders? For some reason the Blends don’t work with them. Of course, I still want to use my embossing powders and use Blends, so with my Stamparatus I have brought the two together perfectly! You can watch my video where I walk you through the steps.

Techniques, do you like them?

You may remember that I used to have a channel where every Tuesday I would do Two techniques. I called it Twosday’s Techniques and I posted on Vimeo (you can still find them there!). Well, I love techniques because using them gives more life to your stamping supplies. Anything that lets me come up with cool cards/scrapbook pages is in my wheel house. For todays video I am showing how to use two products that are like oil and water, but teaching you how to use them together.

Fancy Folds yay or nay?

I would love to know if you like Fancy Folds? Obviously I like them, but I don’t want to do them as often if YOU don’t! Sometimes I get bored with the cards folded the regular way, there is only so many ways you can change it up. After all there is landscape and portrait, that’s pretty much it! Of course the challenge is whether it fits in our envelopes, If I find a fancy fold that won’t fit in our envelopes, I tend to stear clear. What do you think? I’d love to know what you like.

Techniques & Fancy Folds!

Techniques & Fancy folds, of course this is a fancy fold!
Techniques & Fancy Folds, this is the technique card!

These cards are very fun to make, the first one I got the fold from Sue Campfield, and the other one I saw on Pinterest, both I designed myself, hope you love them as much as I do! Techniques & Fancy Folds are my jam!

You can get BOTH PDF’s by signing up for my Newsletter (upper right of post), each time I do a pdf I send it to my Newsletter people. Get ready to get a bunch of ideas!!

Last chance!

Starter kit offer!!  Great Deal!
You will love my Team Lets Stamp! We have a lot of fun and I send out 1 free stamp set every month!

Sorry I was gone for a month

Some of you already know this but I went to DisneyWorld with my family last month! We spent 8 days with all my grandkids and all three of my daughters with 2 of their significant others. Every day was full of waking up before dawn, opening the park (rope drop anyone!?) and then trying to get all our rides that we ‘had to’ ride before it got too busy. Can I tell you that the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride is so awesome! I have a bad neck due to my accident when I broke my C2 vertebrae, so most roller coasters I worry will exacerbate my condition, but the Guardians ride was so smooth and fun! If they let us I’m sure we would have got right back in line!

As if that wasn’t enough, we also spent 4 days at Universal Studios, also opening the park! Let’s just say we left our ‘vacation’ more tired than we started! 🙂 All of us have decided that NEXT time, Universal will only be 1-2 days and being a Disney Family we still HAVE to spend a day at each park. BUT we will add in rest days so we can recoup and enjoy the resort.

Anyone here a Disney Fan? I moved to CA in 1969, grew up going to Disney. Then we moved all around the states and once we moved to NC we figured we could still be a Disney Family, but this time it would be Disney World. I LOVE Disney and feel my happiest when I am there, you?

That’s it for today!

I hope you enjoyed your visit! Please come back next week for my next round of cards/video. NOT sure if I will do a Live on YouTube or just upload a video. All depends on my time and schedule! Thank you so much for coming, I really appreciate you!
