Daisy Lane Card

There’s a few things retiring on this card! Grab the Perennial Floral Centers before the end of the month! PLUS they are on sale! Fun and simple card for summer. The Daisy Punch makes it EASY!

Waterfront Card

Here’s a card to get you in the spring/summer mood! My friend, Michelle Zindorf walked me through how to create the beach scene that is in the circle, all you do is literally drag your ink pad across the paper! I love this effect! There are so many possibilities with this technique!

I like using Foam Strips to give the chair some dimension, that way I don’t have to trim down Dimensionals to make them fit.

weSTAMP Regional Event SO MUCH FUN!

Yesterday was such an amazing day, I just love hanging with my team. To top it off, we had 2 other teams as guests, so it was TRIPLE FUN!

I can’t wait to share photos with you, and ideas from our demonstrations. You will be amazed at their creativeness!

The them of our event was obviously picnic! You can get away with picnic parties in January when you live in AZ! LOL

Let’s start off with the table goodies! Juli Steward made the adorable water bottle labels that went so well with our picnic theme! What is a picnic with out trash cans? These little cuties were ordered from a company in China. We actually used them for our scraps, and each person received one at their table. The name tags were made by Kimberley McQueen, they have a cute little ant on them. The picnic baskets were headed up by Becca Matlock and her team helped assemble those. The pattern to the picnic basket can be found HERE on my blog under tutorials. I love Becca’s creative touch to coordinate with our theme. The cute little lady bug bubbles container with our Regional logo on it was created by Donna Kish!

Here is the table all set up. Robin Higgins made the beautiful sunflower centerpieces – they go so well with our picnic theme!

Brenda Marshall and Becca Matlock greet the guests as they arrive.


Linda Rodenberg made this darling banner to welcome the guests! I just love to see the creativity of our team!

More sharing coming up! Stay tuned!

Summer Camper Card – Pieces and Patterns

How about a fun summer card for the camper in your life! I love paper piecing! I purchased this camper image online at the Silhouette store (can’t publish the pattern because it’s purchased). Then I shrunk it down to fit on my card.

The Designer Series Paper in the Pick a Pattern collection are so awesome, you can make so many different type cards with one paper pack!

Hawaiian Themed Gift

My daughter and her husband are celebrating their 5th Anniversary by going on a Hawaiian cruise, so I thought it would be fun to give her an early birthday gift! We are sending them on a Hawaiian luau excursion, and of course, I had to have a cute way to present it.

I bought some Bath and Body works products to put inside the bag, they had a candle from there that actually had the word Luau on it!

The pineapple was hand drawn and cut out with my Silhouette machine. The hula girl and “Aloha” word was cut out with a download from the Silhouette store.

To create the card, I used the stamp set “Writing Notes” (retired) and made the criss crosses on the pineapple.


Summer Sampler!

Here’s another sampler by Gina Shappa, my incredibly creative downline! We are teaming up again and offering a SUMMER SAMPLER CLASS! You won’t want to miss this – what a beautiful piece of art to display through the summer season! Gina is known for working a set of battery operated lights into her samplers. I LOVE how the lighthouse lights up!

Another Mixed Drinks Card!

Here’s a bright and cheery summer card, using Mixed Drinks again! LOVE this set!

The ice cubes have Wink of Stella (clear) on them to make them sparkle!

I ran the strips of colored cardstock (using the Softly Falling embossing folder) through the Big Shot before adhering to card front.

More weRETREAT Photos – COOL TREATS Projects

Here’s a couple of treat containers, one of them was a pillow gift at the weRETREAT. I found Erica Cerwin’s video tutorial on how to make these HERE. The thing I LOVE about this pattern is you can make the back piece as long as you want it, to fit whatever treat you put inside!

As I said earlier, the theme of the retreat was Summer FUN! All my make and takes were “Cool Treats” related. Here’s a little ice cream stand! The awning is scored at 1/4″ and 1″.

Those face coasters are a HOOT! Here are some more photos from our photo booth on Saturday night!

Butterfly Cards

Here are some cards using the Butterfly Thinlit! The color combinations are endless using this sketch!

Just stamp the card (I stamped off for a more subtle look). Then set the butterfly framelit on top of the Whisper White card stock. Cut the butterfly out, then re-attach it to the front of the card using Glue Dots. I also bent the wings back a little bit to give it a 3-D look!

Pop of Paradise!
