My Open House on Saturday was a BIG success!  Of course, I didn’t take any pictures! I was way too busy making sure all my guests were having a good time!  Having it at my church was great in the fact we had so much room, but I was totally exhausted from lugging all the stuff back and forth.  I didn’t clean up my stamp room until Monday night and haven’t stamped since!  I’ll be back in my stamp room this weekend to work on more fun stuff!

Here’s a clean, easy design for a generic birthday card.  All my stuff is “clean” I guess.  But that’s my style 🙂  Wish my stamp room was always “clean” LOL!!

Look for this in an upcoming class!


See Ya Later

More Open House Samples for you to see in person on Saturday!  They are calling for snow, but it’s not suppose to be much. Although, they have been wrong before! But I’m still going to go forward with the Open House at my church.

For those of you coming, as of last Sunday, there was no sign out front.  It is being repaired so I don’t know if it is back up yet.  The address is 24 Wilmington Road, Burlington Mass.  The number is clearly marked on the mailbox.

On to the project!

I  totally CASED Mary Fish on this one!  I just added a different ribbon and flipped it on it’s side.  Wasn’t much to change on this one!  I tried taking a picture in natural sunlight – one of my customers suggested it – but I haven’t been able to get the right angles. Plus, it’s been so cold up in New England, I don’t want to go near a window! We’ll be doing this class in March, the class will be limited to 6 so be sure to sign up early!

Wedding Ensemble

Been working on samples for the Open House this Saturday.  I have 2 wedding this year and I’m sure I’ll be asked to help with favors!  Love doing wedding and baby stuff!

I’ve been trying to figure out how I can get my pictures to look better.  I think I’m stuck with what I have.  The projects in the pictures never look as good as they do in person.  I’m going to have a lot of samples for upcoming classes at the Open House so if you are coming, you can see for yourself!

This is a great wedding favor!  It’s a CASE of my own project I did a few weeks ago. It’s made with the Envelope Punch Board.

Wedding Favor

This is Ghiradelli chocolate holder.  It’s made with the new Angled Tag Topper from the Occasions Mini.  So fast and easy.  Mary Fish did a tutorial on these great little treat holders.

Here’s a nice wedding card, check holder.  Again, I CASED myself!  The inside is a bit hard to see, again, crappy camera!

Open House Make-N-Take

I’ve been having fun with all my new goodies.  I’ve decided to do 2 Make-N-Takes for my Open House.  Since I’ll be holding it at my church, there’s lots of room for people to sit.  Again, you must sign up on my Workshops page in order to get the Make-N-Takes.  This really helps me plan on how much food to have and how many goodies I will be giving away as well!  If you’ve come to my other Open Houses, you know you won’t be disappointed!

Perfect Pennants

When I first got the Occasions Mini, I was only “Wowed” by maybe one or 2 things. But as always, I see so many talented crafters out there who come up with designs that make me buy most of the products in the catalog!!!

Here’s a card made with the Perfect Pennants stamp set, the Banner Frame Lits and the Retro Fresh Dsp.  This was one of the quickest cards I came up with in a long time.  I CASED it from Catherine Pooler.  It’s going to be a project the end of Feb.

Oh, and my photo studio is having issues lately.  I broke 2 light bulbs and need to replace them with the correct wattage.  Sorry for the crappy pic!
