Another Scrap Card


Sorry for the blurry post! My Son still had my camera so here is another scrap card from long ago. I hope you are not offended and think this card is not blog worthy, but remember, this is one I made utilizing only scraps I had on my desk, and for the most part,using the scraps in their already cut dimensions. I just slipped the background through the big shot texture die and bordered the ends with our great border punches on page 187 of the catalog. I wasn't worried if it wasn't perfect--and it wasn't. I was just thinking of sending my daughter a card and knowing I had about 5 minutes to make one. If you have a card making desk and it isn't clean, clean it up by seeing what you can make with your leftovers. Or throw them away. Or store them in a meticulously organized manner and email me and tell me how you do it.

I have some great things to show you that I've been making. Unfortunately, my son usually has my camera as he is taking photography this trimester. I like the rock shot. What do you think? So I am going to repost a scrap card that I made for my daughter Christina who is serving a mission in Hong Kong. A scrap card is a card that I make from whatever scraps happen to still be on my desk at the time I make it. I really like the embossed polka dots made with the big shot. I LOVE MY BIG SHOT!

I Missed Scrapfest but I Climbed Table Rock!


No, there are no stamps in this picture. But there is my sweetie of 24 years with me on top of table rock. When my husband wanted to know what I would like to do for our anniversary, I told him to take a hike. He liked that idea. So we climbed 4000 feet in 6 miles and then 4000 feet back down for another 6 which was quite a little hike in my opinion. And that is why I missed the Scrapfest. The next opportunity to do some serious stamping will be October 10th at our first stamp club meeting!

Spooky Candy



I love pumpkins and the fall and I love Halloween. And I love M & M's. So Here are some fun cards. I used our great designer paper in perfect plum as a background. Who would have thought that Perfect Plum was perfect for Halloween! And the candy holders are from the new Mini Catalog from Stampin'Up!

Happy Birthday



I love SU's Birthday stamps! And I love Pink and Brown because they make me think of really great chocolate. I don't know why. Many unexplainable combinations make me think of chocolate. Which is nice.

Talented Tiffany and the Three Pumpkins


I needed a card for a card exchange and I just couldn't quite pull all the elements into a decent looking card. Luckily, I know a woman who is pretty much brilliant with paper. Okay, She has a new business where she uses lots of paper and you can visit her at positivelyperfectparty.blogspot.com. Here is her pumpkin card.
