Valentine Hearts

Hi Stampers! I finally took some time out of mu busy schedule this weekend and stamped a little. I wanted to brain storm some Valentine cards for my class, but am still waiting for some of my new goodies to arrive from the new Mini catalog. I pulled out some of my Valentine stuff from last year and dove in. This is what I came up with. It's not my usual style, but I think it works anyway. Tomorrow my new goodies should arrive and then I can really get my mojo going. I can't wait!!

I added a strip of the same DSP to the inside along with a strip of Real Red card stock punched with the same punch from the front. Love how this makes the entire card look finished and complete. Hope you're getting in the mood for a little love soon!
Happy Stamping~

Advent Calendars

Hi Stampers! Here is another one of the projects that I worked on the past few months. I saw the idea for these somewhere online so I can not say that this was an original idea of mine. When I saw the ones that had been done by other stampers I knew I had to make some of my own.

The project itself was fairly simple to do. I think the most time consuming thing was punching all the different layers. I made several of these in traditional red and green Christmas colors and other I made were of non-tradintional colors such as turquoise and pink. I love how they all turned out.
Once I started making these I just couldn't stop. Many of my family members who have young children received one of these for them to enjoy next holiday season. The kids are going to love removing the little magnets to find the "surprise" underneath. The tins could be filled with anything from candy to stickers.

It's Been Too Long

Wow! Has it really been 6 months since I last posted? It seems like time flies the older you get. Maybe I feel that way since I will be having another birthday next week. Who knows! Even though I haven't posted on here, I have been doing some crafting. Not a lot, but that is one of the things I plan to change this year.

My life has taken on some drastic changes the past 6 months and so that has been part of my issue with not posting. The boys and I are out on our own now and have a fantastic place. I even have my very own stamping room now!! I am super excited. I realized though that I have way too much stuff and will be needing to downsize some soon, but for now it is all put away and I have my own little hide away I can create and be happy in. :)

One of the things I made while I was away from Blog-land was a squash book for my sister for a wedding she was going to. It is so elegant and classy looking. I love how it turned out.

I love the look of black and burgundy together. It just screams sophistication to me. What do you think? I love making these little books. They are a quick and easy way to scrap some of your favorite pictures and moments. They are great for weddings, family vacations, holidays, school years, sporting events and just about any other thing you can think of.

Anyone in the local area interested in attending a stamp class contact me for more details. I have a Valentine's Day class that I am planning now that will be held the last week in January. New and seasoned stampers are welcome!
