Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to thank all those wonderful creative friends that have influenced my life over the years!  I know how hard it is to come up with different ideas for your projects, and you help me to be creative.  Believe it or not I have been doing creative things this party year but I have now been able to take many pictures to show you. I hope to start again but at the moment I can’t darn it. Anyway I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving! sf_harvestfest_turkeybutton

Stampbusters Episode 2: Sharpening your punches with soda cans?


I tried this and it works great on most punches.  The more intricate punches did not do well and I noticed that the less expensive punches did not do well at all.  I tried it on most of my Stampin Up punches and it really worked great!

I know I had told you I would test out Blender Pen refill recipes but had a terrific-ly busy week and didn’t make it to the store for glycerin.  I promise next Sunday I’ll post the video for that!

I LOVE my Stampin’ Up punches.  They add a little bit extra to projects, save time from cutting out stamped images AND they are easy to use.   Over time, they seem to get a bit dull.  I’ve tried the tin foil method, the wax paper to help them glide better but it doesn’t really sharpen as much as I would like.

My demonstrator buddy, Toni Ballesteros, shocked me when she said we could sharpen our punches using soda cans.  (maybe some of you already do this but news to me).

In Mythbusters style, I’m testing to see if it REALLY does sharpen my punches or does it ruin it forever?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

2015-02-13 10.33.522015-02-13 10.34.07The other day I was asked by a sweet friend to create a Birthday-Valentine’s card and of course I had to give it a try.  I looked on Pinterest to get some ideas and found one but unfortunately I can’t find the person that made it.  The web sites that were mentioned were blocked because of a possible spam.  Anyway whoever made this card Thank you!

Getting back to my card, I decided to make it a regular A 2 size side fold card with a white base.  For the mat cut at 5 1/4 x 4, I used some light grey cardstock that I have had for a very long time so I am not even sure who makes it.  I used my linen background stamp from Stampin Up and Crumb Cake ink.

I loved the effect it gave and I had forgotten how much I loved this old stamp, gotta use it more often.  I rounded the top left and bottom right corners on both the mat and the card base.

I also used Stampin Up’s Heart to Heart punch for the hearts and for the string I used several Kreinik Metallics blending filament 093. I attached the hearts with mini glue dots and added dimensionals to lift it off the base a little.

To finish it off I used 3 pearls from the Stampin Up’s Basic pearls pack and colored them with Stampin Blendabilities medium Cherry Cobbler.  I finished it off with a couple of sprays of Tsukineko all purpose ink #74 Champagne mist to give it just the right amount of shine. I thought it turned out very pretty myself.

Thank you for taking a look and please come back soon.  I hope to start making more creations to put on my blog in the future.


NOTE: I am not a demonstrator for Stampin Up but I enjoy their products and I will link as many of the products that I used to my demonstrator Sally Hadley’s Stampin Up store.

Valentines Boxes oh my!

I just wanted to show the Valentine’s boxes I made for my grandchildren this week.  I thought they turned out so cute, but man I must be back in my old days when all we got was just cards!  Connor had his party yesterday and when he came home he had about 3 cards with candy in the box and a great big bag he made using 2 major large sheets of paper that was stapled on the sides brimming full of candy, lol I guess next year I will need much bigger boxes! Oh well they turned out cute anyway and grandma made them so that is what counts anyway Right!

Love this idea and when we were making our selections about a month ago, I hadn’t seen this type of challenge in blog land all that much, but now it’s everywhere. LOL  Oh well, that’s okay!  You all have had some practice then.

I used a mix of SU (flower) and Verve ( U/beautiful) stamps to make my sentiment pop!  The R was cut out with my new SU die cut letters! I think my Cricut is going to start collecting more dust now, using these dies and my Big Shot is…
