Stampin Up Card Keeper Box

Here is a cute little box I put together using the Stampin Card Keeper in our Holiday Mini on page 35. I used Early expresso cardstock and DSP from Letters to Santa and also the Frostwood Lodge. The box came with a silver metal label holder and two silver brads, I used versamark ink and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder and my heat gun to change the color. Be very careful when doing this... the metal gets really hot..ask me how I I would recommend tweasers for holding. I am going to use this for holding all my Christmas cards I make. I think I will be buying a few more to do... Maybe one for Birthday's, thinking of you, get the idea... they are very versitile..

Gift wrap jars

My husband John and I made some Lady Ashburn Relish early this fall. We gave a few jars away so I decided to make them look

Kraft Gift Boxes

I made these gift boxes for a couple of hostess gifts. I filled them with Lindor Chocolates. They go together pretty quickly.

Stampin Up Fabric Garland

I made these garlands from our Stampin Up fabric and our #2 circle die. I used the two largest circles then made yo-yo flowers and hot glued the two together. I finished them off with a button or brad. I sewed them together with the sewing machine then added real red ribbon. I tied them all together to make one long strand and then applied them to my charlie brown tree.

Baby Picture Frame & matching Card

I made this picture frame and card for a baby shower I was invited to. The little baby's name was "Carter". I used the Nursery Suite DSP and also paper from the Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Jumbo Wheel called Baby Tees. I colored the little tees then cut them out. I mounted them by using Stampin Dimensionals. I also used Hemp Twine to make it look like they were hanging on a clothesline. I also used the little button brads that are found in Vintage Trinkets found on page 196 of our new Idea Book & Catalogue 2011-2012.


This is a school picture of my little boy... He is going to be 17 in 6 more days.. where does the time go. I just let the picture speak for itself... Those Eyes.... He is so shy but also very handsome.... I can't remember the name of this paper, it is now retired.


This is our newest addation to our Family... Little Miss Lexie. She was born Christmas Eve 2010. On this layout I used paper from our Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack. These can be found on page 175 of our new Idea Book & Catalogue 2011-2012. I also made her cute little headband that she is wearing.


This is a scrapbook page of one of our grandaughters " Ocean". This is using the DSP Nursery Suite Speciality. So sad to see this paper go. It was one of my favorites.


This page is of one of our grandson's "Solomon" here I used the Nursery Suite Specialty DSP and the Nursery Suite quick accents to complete the page. The paper and accents are now retired.

Flower Frame

I made this frame to demo a class I taught for a group of Stampin Up Demonstrators. We had so much fun... Now they are teaching classes and making their own frames.. I just love my Job... This picture is of two of my minature horses. I have six altogher. These are two of my little girls.. Oakley & Ruby.

Wedding Card

This is the card I made for my husband's cousins' wedding. I copied this design from Dawn Olshefske. Very simple but elegant. I used Very Vanilla cardstock and Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.

Wedding picture frame

This is a wedding frame I did for my Husbands cousin. I did the flowers in the same colors that she chose for her wedding. I put the wedding announcement in the frame but if she chooses she could put her wedding picture in instead.
