A Good Man Card

Father’s Day will be here before you know it! How about a great relaxing card for him using A Good Man stamp set? His hat is popped up on Dimensionals. Many of these accessory items are retiring next week and no longer available! (Designer Series Paper, Seasonal Layers Dies – a MUST HAVE!, Baker’s Twine….)

Cozy Craft Retreat Nearly SOLD OUT!

This was my swap card for my team meeting last month. We had a masculine theme last month. Thank goodness Geared Up Garage is carrying over, but the Designer Series Paper is NOT! Grab it while you can! It goes too well with this suite!


The Cozy Craft Retreat has nearly SOLD OUT in one day! There are only 3 spots left, but remember, you can get in on ALL the projects and prizes if you want this as a Retreat-To-Go! Please email me if you are interested in attending or getting a Retreat-To-Go.

See previous post HERE for retreat details.

Nailed It and Urban District Masculine Card

Here’s a card I used for my team swap this month. I love the many Pinterest cards that were made into a tool box! I found a really nice graphic of how to cut the card stock on Lisa Bernard’s blog, which can be found HERE.

This week I had a team meeting, and our swap theme was to create a card using products from the new Stampin’ Up catalog. This is what I made, and even earned the “Best weSTAMP Swap” this month! This is a big deal to me, in my 11 years of being a demonstrator, this is only the 2nd time I have won! THANKS weSTAMP TEAM!

The “Nailed It” stamp set can be purchased in a bundle to save you 10%

This is such an awesome masculine stamp set that you will use forever! It’s always great to have a nice “go to” masculine stamp set in your stash.

Last Day to Order Retiring Stamps!!

Today is the last day to order from the old catalog, which includes many retiring items!!!

One of my favorite masculine sets is “Best Dad Ever”. The gals didn’t see this set at my Retirement Open House, even though it’s retiring, because this baby I’m hanging onto! I also hung onto the sentiment stamp, Curly Cute. LOVE these sets and will continue to use them on my personal projects! You can order them HERE.

Masculine Card – Electric Outlet

Here’s a masculine card for you! SO simple! I saw the outlet part of this card on pinterest, made by Laurie Wilson. Her card can be seen HERE.

I made my own pattern by just googling “outlet”, right clicking and saving it to my desktop! The outlet is about 1 1/2″ high.
The inside sentiment is from the set “Friendly Phrases”. This set is RETIRING!!! Get it before May 31st! You can order online HERE. Then I added the cord by using a Stampin’ Write Marker.

The outlets are on dimensionals so they POP.

Click on photos to see it even better!

To make the prongs, cut strips of 1/8″ Brushed Silver paper and attach with a dimensional.

Workbench Made by Patti!

Patti purchased the Tool Bench tutorial (on my sidebar) and this is what she came up with! Isn’t it darling? I LOVE how she added the “ribbon maker” that so many of us own. Patti’s blog can be found HERE. Thanks for sharing this Patti!I think the Tool Bench would make a great Christmas gift, along with a gift certificate to Home Depot or Lowe’s for the man in your life! (It could go to a gal, too, in PINK!)NOTE: Patti’s Tool Bench was also featured on The Kraft Journal Blog, which can be found HERE!

Paper: Naturals Vanilla, Soft Suede
Ink: Soft Suede, Black Stazon
