Banner Triple Punch

I’ve been highlighting a lot of punches and scrapbooking pages lately and wanted to show you one more this week.  I have used this punch countless times on many different projects.  It’s the perfect finishing touch to a sentiment for a card, treat bag or scrapbooking page. The Banner Triple Punch is designed with guidelines to…

52 Happy Days

I wanted to share a picture from my card class last Friday.  Food was eaten, laughs were had, and beautiful cards were made!  My next class is May 22 from 3-5 so mark your calendar! Caitlin

Have an Award-Winning Day

  It’s time for the last of the three treat bag examples I created for an end of school party! See the first two here and here. I saved the best for last, in my opinion, because it combines my love of crafting and my love of horses.  This was a very straight forward project. …

Let’s Talk about Retirement

Talking about retirement on Monday when most of us are headed into our day jobs might be dangerous but I’m going for it!  I’m not announcing my retirement from my job but rather I’m talking about all the Stampin’ Up! products that will be retired  on May 31, 2015.  While it’s sad to see products…

Calling All Hostesses

Tonight is my Chicks and Chocolate card class night! I wanted to show you some door prizes I made up for various events and, yes, I will be giving some away tonight! I also wanted to let you know about Stampin’ Up’s great hostess benefits a.k.a Stampin’ Rewards. As a Hostess you are in charge…

Owl Builder Punch

Well you’ve heard me mention the Owl Builder Punch in several posts now and I wanted to revisit this great punch.  The creative possibilities with this punch never cease to amaze me! I recently talked to a group of scrapbookers and wanted to show them the versatility of this punch and the possibilities it creates for…

Istanbul to Birmingham

Today’s project was a fun one that I completed with a little inspiration from Pinterest.  I realized when I started scrapbooking these pictures I needed American flags and didn’t have any! Just using red, white, and blue paper did feel right so I searched in Pinterest for ‘Stampin’ Up American Flag’ and this wonderful idea popped…

Hoppy Monday

Hello Crafters! Hope your weekend was spent doing something you love. The sun is shining brighter and the days are getting longer and this all points to one thing…I’m getting less sleep.  Ha, just kidding, (although that is a true statement) the sunshine and longer days point to the fact that summer is coming! While…

It’s o’FISH’ally a Great Punch!

It’s time for the third project showcasing the Flower Builder Punch and coordinating friends and flower stamp set! Check out the first and second projects as well!

52 Happy Days

Digital photo Wednesday is here! This photo comes from the back yard of Ruth Mountain B&B in Arab. This also happened to be the view from my bedroom for the weekend!  We were blessed with beautiful weather. On Saturday afternoon a few of us had fun taking a walk.  These guys were not so happy…

Teddy Bear Friend

Hello again! I had a wonderful weekend at a retreat with seven other fabulous crafters and scrapbookers!  We were pampered at a B&B with amazing food and accommodations and had nothing but time to work on our projects.  Look for a picture of the beautiful setting on Wednesday! I alternated back and forth between my…
