“Noel” November 2013 Paper Pumpkin Craft Kit from Stampin’ Up!

  The November Paper Pumpkin kit was the ABSOLUTE BEST kit since I’ve joined Paper Pumpkin back in August!!!  I loved this kit and made one of the cards exactly as featured on the packaging, it’s even cuter in real life than in the photo….but of course….I wanted to see what else could be done with the kit’s contents so I made several more projects!  My favorite project was the cover for my iPhone! I love to change the design on my iPhone to match the holidays! I’ve had lots of people ask me where I got my fabulous iPhone Continue Reading →

I would love to be eating lobster at the Oceanside Inn!!!

This month at my stamp camps we made this fabulous card featuring the “By the Tide” collection from Stampin’ Up! One of my stampin’ friends, Angelique, was headed to dinner at Red Lobster afterwards to meet her husband.  They were celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversary that evening. She had wonderful presents for her husband but didn’t have a card, so she was really glad she came to the class. Writing this post is making my tastebuds crave lobster drenched in butter!  The best lobster I ever had in my life was in a restaurant on the working waterfront of Gloucester, Continue Reading →

Nurse Joyce

Owl Builder Punch / Image (c) Stampin’ Up! I often wonder, is there anything more exhausting than sitting by a patient’s bedside at the hospital?!?!?! Okay, okay, sure, I guess it has been a LITTLE BIT harder on hubby, after all, he is the one who had major surgery for the second time in five months, but at least he’s getting the good drugs! Ha ha!!!Johnny’s surgeons, Dr. Shiraz Patel & Dr. Brian Kern, are FANTASTIC and the nurses here at Lourdes Hospital have been WONDERFUL.  My only complaint is that the Starbuck’s in the lobby closes at 1:00 pm and isn’t open on Sundays! Johnny’s getting Continue Reading →

Go RED for Women!

February is American Heart Month! “Heart disease takes the lives of far too many people in this country, depriving their families and communities of someone they love and care for—a father, a mother, a wife, a friend, a neighbor, a spouse. With more than 2 million heart attacks and strokes a year, and 800,000 deaths, just about all of us have been touched by someone who has had heart disease, heart attack, or a stroke.” – Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. That’s why the entire month of Continue Reading →

A QUILTING BEE….WHO KNEW BEES COULD QUILT!!!

Image (c) Stampin’ Up! When I was a little girl, I remember the old ladies at church talking about going to a quilting bee.  I never understood why they would want to do that, I was scared of bees!!! (That’s actually a true story!!! Remember how literally you took everything when you were a child?!?!?!) I immediately fell in LOVE with this precious card the very first time I turned to page 3 in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2013 Spring Catalog. I had to have everything so I could make this one, it’s just soooo cute!!! My card is almost an exact CASE of Continue Reading →

MOTHER NATURE, YOU’RE A FICKLE WOMAN!!!

Saturday I woke up and it felt like spring: the sun was shining, the high for the day was 64 degrees, all was wonderful in the world…..then yesterday I woke up to 18 degrees and the world was covered in a sheet of ice.  Not nice Mother Nature!!! Yesterday was my husband 70th birthday!  Happy Birthday Johnny!  He is my biggest fan and is so supportive of all the time I spend Stampin’ Up!  I had a card design all planned out in my head that used Stampin’ Up!’s new Honeycomb embossing folder because it reminds me of a molecular structure Continue Reading →

SCENTSATIONAL GIFT CARD HOLDER & CHRISTMAS CARD

Gift cards have become so popular.  People love buying them because it’s convenient and they don’t have to worry if it’s the right size.  People love getting them because they don’t have to worry about getting another ugly Christmas sweater!!!  But how do you make it seem more personal???  Make a really cute gift card holder!!! I love making gift card holders using this pop-up box card template.  Everyone is always really impressed that you made it for them!  You don’t have to tell them that it’s actually pretty easy to put together!  Here’s one we made at our stamp camps this month.  It Continue Reading →

I’M DREAMING OF A PINK CHRISTMAS, Breast Cancer Awareness Stamp Camp

I’m getting excited about the Breast Cancer Awareness Stamp Camp that is scheduled for next week.  This is my 2nd Annual “I’m Dreaming of a PINK Christmas” event and it is in honor of my beloved Mother, Louise Mileur, who is celebrating her 20th year as a Breast Cancer Survivor!!!  Be sure to look at the previous post “Breast Cancer Awareness Stamp Camp”, posted 10/12/2012, to get more info on this event. I’ve been trying to decide on cards for the event and so far I have two that I’m loving.  My first one was inspired by Nina Dee on Stampin’ Connection. Continue Reading →

FREE Festive Paper-Piercing Pack from Stampin’ Up!

One week left to get the FREE Festive Paper-Piercing Pack!!!  See “The Fine Print” below. Here are three cards that I’ve made using this set.  The first one is my favorite.  I love the shimmer of the Silver Glimmer paper and I think the pearls add an elegant touch.  I’ve used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Very Vanilla background.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and it was punched out with the Modern Label punch. On the second card I used the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree to make the branches.  By stamping the image 2 – 3 times before re-inking you get Continue Reading →

NO TRICKS, JUST TREATS!

This stair-step card was inspired by Beth Rank’s design.  I made just a couple of minor changes. I just love Halloween!!!  I’m the house with the bubble & fog machines at the front door and the “Welcome” mat that makes scary noises when you step on it.  All the neighborhood kids know that as far as I’m concerned there is no such a thing as being “too old” to trick-or-treat.  I don’t even understand why the community has an age limit for trick-or-treaters.  If you are 13, 18, or even 35 years old, and you still think its fun to Continue Reading →
