Wedding Banner

I know I’ve been MIA for a while.  My stampin’ has taken a back seat to my “real job” and my family lately.  Hopefully, I can get back to my stamping schedule soon!

A dear friend of mine is getting married in a few weeks and I made this banner for her dessert table.  My daughter was so excited that there’s going to be a table specifically for dessert!!!!  This really came out beautiful.  I’ll post a better picture of it when it goes on the table in a few weeks!

Birthday – All Occasion

I really need more generic birthday cards. Never have enough of them, especially for boys and men.

I saw this card up on Pinterest and just loved it.  I changed it just a bit, but not much. This is definitely going to be in an upcoming class! The paper is from the Simply Scrappin’ Kit, Bandstand.

I needed a card for my cousin’s daughter’s wedding shower.  I made 2 different designs, I’m not sure which one I like the best, they are both so cute!

Tea For Two

This is the card I did for my downline last night. I own all the paper piercing paks, but haven’t used any of them yet, so I decided it was time!

I usually put a verse on it, but this one didn’t need it – plus I didn’t leave enough room down the bottom!





Card Components

Paper: Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, DSP Tea For Two

Accessories: Pearls, Crepe Paper (Spring Mini), Lucky Limeade ribbon

Tools: Essentials Paper Piercing Pak, Large & Small butterfly punches.


Don’t forget that if you need any of these items, you can purchase them here!


Also, new clubs are starting soon. Check out my Clubs page for more details.

In my quest for my downline card for tonight’s meeting, I made a bunch of cards that didn’t make the “cut”.  This was one of them.  It got a little out of control for a demo meeting card.  Not that it’s not good enough from my wonderful downline to make, it surely is, but it takes a long time to put together and we chat so much in the meetings, there might not be enough time to complete!



Card Components

Stamp Set: Bloomin’ Marvelous

Inks: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo

Paper: DSP Sent With Love, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White

Spring Mini Sample



I’m still working on a class card for my downline meeting tomorrow, and this card isn’t it!!!  I’ll post that one tomorrow, I don’t want to spoil it for my team!

This card is one of the prettiest ones I’ve made in a long time.  A lot of the elements are items from for Spring Mini. The Paper Doilies, the Delicate Detail Lace Tape, the Creped Filter Paper, and the Bitty Butterfly Punch are all new items in the mini.  This is a little out of my comfort zone, very Froo Froo for me, but it is really lovely.

When I first saw the All Dressed Up bundle I kind of thumbed my nose at it.  But, of course, as it always happens, I grew to like all the great things people have been making with it.  I thought it was a great thing to use for weddings as as well.

I was thinking of a great wedding favor to make with the bundle and I remember all the cute little favors I made with the Perfectly Preserved bundle.  Inside this dress is a Chapstick!  I tried making a little box to contain it in, but it was just too hard. Mostly to line up the dresses to fit perfectly.  But for this one, I just used Tombo glue on the Chapstick and stuck it inside the two dresses! Just make sure you line the dresses up so it won’t topple over. I put the 2 dresses in the Polka Dots folder first, only put it up to the waste of the dress, then I put it through with the Elegant Lines embossing folder on the bottom of the dress, leaving the top of the dress out of the folder.  You can put the 2 pieces together through the Big Shot – it saves a lot of time that way.

I actually took pictures of this in my photo studio with the black back drop.  The dress looks like it’s just hanging there!  But I think you can see it better.  These make a super easy and cheap wedding shower or  wedding favor!!  Just make sure you get the Chapstick that you can peal the wrapper off.  As you can see, the Chapstick is pure white.

Isn’t it super cute?
