I am in love.  With many things, but today with a stamp set - work of art.  I love the phrase in it "You are a fabulous work of art".  It's just a great sentiment for a card that you're giving someone 'just because'.  It's so much more meaningful that 'just for you'.  And really does say something worth celebrating - the amazing, wonderful, fabulous friend you are celebrating.


I wanted to make this card a little modern, but also a little funky.  Something that could work for a guy, but honestly I'm more likely to give it to a girl as I tend to get a little more sentimental with my girlfriends telling them how I feel :-)  I only use the sentiment stamp from the 'work of art' stamp set.  The rest came from the 'what's your type' set which is a fantastic set for creating all the letters and words you want, along with funky images.  Remember me using it before Christmas for this card? Anyway this card was very easy to make - just lots of repeated stamping and one sentiment.  I also made the card square to balance it with the circles and circular wreath stamped on it.  I don't normally say I love my cards - but I'm a bit in love with this one. I think my style has changed yet again and I'm going to have some fun with this new way of looking at my stamps.

Happy crafting.

new year - new resolutions


I love a new year.  It's full of potential and all the good intentions we have.  If you're like me and you have an intention to craft more then this is also the best time to get stocked up for it.  From now until the end of March Sale-a-Bration is on.  That means for every $90 you spend, you can choose a free gift. There are 10 items, plus Blendabilities to choose from and you really will be happy.  These are not sample-size give-a-ways but real full size products. There are 6 stamp sets, 2 sets of Designer Series Paper, Embellishments, and Project Life cards!  Oh and the Blendabilities - did I mention them?

$90 purchase gets you 1 free item, $180 gets you two, and it grows from there.  Plus if your order total reaches $300 in products,  Stampin' Rewards kick in ($50 in free products of your choice, from any current catalogue).  Want more?  Get together with friends and place a combined order... or go a little wild yourself.  If your individual or group order reaches $400, you can choose for 4 Sale-a-Bration items, + $100 in free products from any current catalogue!  Did someone say bargain? Or perhaps that should be temptation ;-)

Happy crafting... and shopping ;-)

Here's a little card I made some time ago - mostly using retired products.  I was throwing together lots of elements and different techniques just to see if it would work.  I didn't have time to pull out my sewing machine.  And quite frankly I don't think I could sew perfect circles so I used a white gel pen to draw on the stitches.  It has a similar effect to hand sewn stitches - not quite perfect :-)



I love the sentiment Make a Wish.  I think this is something we need to do more that just birthdays - make a wish on a new week and work to make it come true.

Happy crafting.
