Here's a card we will be doing at camp this coming Friday. I combined a set from the Annual Catalog with the folder that will be released in the Holiday Catalog. So super simple! I did it as a Birthday - but obviously it could be a Thank You, Thinking of You - so many options. Then using it for a recipe card, canning, cookbook collection lends it to even more options. Think of the fun themed bridal showers you could host with it! Here is the tutorial Because my card is a darker … [Read more...] about Hammered Metal Tuscan Garden Goodness Card and Recipe Card
Today - let's take one last look at the Holiday Catalog before we get some Camp Card Tutorials all in a row! The fun thing about today's "Holiday Catalog" card? There is not a Holiday involved! Here you go: This may be one of the more elegant - yet EASIEST! - wedding cards you ever create! Those of you who stamp with me or watch me know that my favorite cardstock is Shimmery White.

I am doing 1 or 2 more cards before moving on to my August Stamp camp projects from the Holiday Catalog.

I will do a couple more that I can show you...but then I will have to focus on some upcoming events we have - and those cards and projects will all be just for the stampers … [Read more...] about How to CASE a Card: Mercury Pumpkin to Mercury Christmas Tree
So this week I have spent a little time in the Pumpkin Patch....it is kind of what happens when you don't really have a plan. The patchwork pumpkins were the tutorial prior to today's. I had one leftover pumpkin that needed to be finished coloring (from when I only do part of one during a YouTube). This one was on Shimmery White cardstock.....didn't want to throw THAT away! Once it was finished - I added the Over the Moon cow and some other new elements (all that were lying on my rather … [Read more...] about Mercury Glass Pumpkin: Holiday Catalog Sneak Peak Harvest Hellos/Apple Builder Punch
I hope I convinced you of your 'need' for the Brick & Mortar 3D Folder last week during my video series on How To Use Embossing Folders. You know, the one that ended last week? Then it didn't. It didn't end because I got this FABULOUS folder as part of my Holiday Catalog 2019 preorder. Before I get going I do want to post these two cards - the top one is my original card and just under is the one I made during the video tutorial. If you notice the Peacock strip - I do … [Read more...] about Hammered Pumpkin Tutorial – Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog

This tutorial fall under - it's just a little bit different! Here you go: I needed something to hold some recipe cards for a new side thing I am starting. I have these boxes of meal kits that come with recipe cards - I want to keep the cards for both personal use and to show others who might want to use them. Of course the first place I always turn to is my own little store! The 6x8 Scrapbooks were PERFECT! I then designed a cover to match the Epic Life (which is a clean eating … [Read more...] about How To Make a Recipe Book From Scrapbooking Materials! Stampin’ Up! and Epicure USA
