Sunday Inspiration and Card Share!

This past week we saw the first day of Fall!!  This has always been a favorite season of mine.  My choice for Sunday Inspiration sums it up quite well!




Now for the card share…..

I was inspired for my last Stamp a Stack by our wonderful Autumn weather we have been having in Wisconsin.  By combining the Stamp Sets, White Christmas and Holiday Home, I came up with these three Autumnal cards, perfect for the many occasions we celebrate in the Fall.  Check out the greetings…they come from the Project Life Stamp Set called Project Life Remember This.  These are great sayings …not just for scrapbooking anymore!






On a side note…I do apologize for the conditions of my cards…these pictures were taken after 6 Stamp a Stack sessions….I need to remember to take pictures before my classes start…not afterSmile!


Until next time…..

Secret Stamper Reveal Party!

Last night we had a great time at the Water City Secret Stampers Reveal Party!!   Held at our local Glass Nickel Pizza Restaurant….our group got together after a year of secretly sending  cards and goodies  to an assigned fellow stamper…now they finally got to meet their Secret Stamper!   The ladies all brought cards and items that they received throughout the year…these ladies are SOME talented stampers!!! 


After sharing ideas and eating yummy pizza…I brought three projects for the ladies to make.  Thanks to Pinterest for the inspiration!!

Here they are…. first is from the Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlets Die and the Feathers Framelits Die.  I just love the sayings from Mingle All The Way …works perfect for this chubby turkey!!!


Next we kept going with the Curvy Keepsakes Box and made a Santa Belly box…..Mingle All The Way!

















And finally…we made a card using the another favorite of mine….the  Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper and The Holiday Home Stamp Set…..such a quick and easy card…I just love it!!



Until next time……..

Weekly Deals and New Stamps!!


Tuesday brought new Weekly Deals and this week, they are featuring two brand NEW punches from the Annual Catalog! The 2" Circle Punch is my very favorite! It accommodates so many images that get cut off by the 1-3/4" Circle Punch and it layers beautifully with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

And how about those arrows on the My Way Punch? So fun!  I made a birdhouse  from the large arrow for September’s Stamp a Stack.  I  will post  a picture of it soon!


New Stamps!!!  Love them!

And check out this brand new Photopolymer Stamp Set!  It is called You’re Wonderful!

Here are some samples of this pretty new set!
