I am so excited to start off the catalog year with you. Yes, Our 2020-2021 Annual Catalog went live just a few days ago – June 3rd to be exact.
I have two wonderful workshops to share this month. The first is my monthly Workshop I have been offering via the mail since the Social Distancing began due to Covid 19. The package includes everything to create four beautiful cards. You just use your adhesive of choice and then decide who’s day you would like to brighten with a handmade card.
Here are the photographs of these projects:

The second option is to join me for a Facebook Live event and create these beautiful cards:
To participate in this Facebook Live workshop you must pre-purchase the Forever Fern Bundle for $54.00. As a bonus you will also receive the four card kits from the Workshop Via The Mail and receive a swag bag with items selected just for you.

Yes, I’ve been cleaning out my shelves and cabinets and have come across many Stampin Up products that have been loved and a few that are brand new. As demonstrators we are encourages to market primarily current products that are available for purchase. There are many retired sets that I can’t bare to part with so they remain on a seperate shelf (ok, really three shelves). The remainder I will offer at half price or the equivalent dollar amount in purchases from the new annual catalog that comes out the end of this month. So if you choose $50.00 in product you can chooses $50.00 worth of retired items. The Sale A Bration items, which are marked as $0.00, will be priced at $10.00 each or an equivalent purchase of $10.00. All items are final sales and available on a first come first served basis.
Please review the list and let me know if you are interested in anything.
Here is a video I made while I unpacked my preorder, you can get a sneak peek at some new catalog items.
Please free to call me if you have any questions.

Yes thats right, this adorable project takes only one sheet of our beautiful Designer Series Paper(DSP)
DSP is our double sided sheets with coordinating prints and colors. It is ideal for reversible type projects like this one.
WE’ll start with the 12″ X 12″ piece and cut off a four inch strip so we are left with t 8″ X 12″ piece of paper. Now, with the 8″ side along the top of your trimmer or score board score at 4″. Turn the paper so the 12″ edge is along the top and score at 3″, 6″, & 9″. Fold and burnish all your score lines then open up the sheet and cut along the middle score line up to the first 3″ line.
Next comes the folding but first you must choose which side you want for the inside and which for the outside. Once you have done that fold the scored line and the accordion fold the remaining strips.
Now you will glue along two edges to make pockets in your wallet. There will be three compartments. I used a 1″ circle punch placed half way into the pocket. This is where the photo, gift card or money can be placed and easily removed by the recipient.
Next take the 4″ X 8″ scrap that we cut off earlier. This will be wrapped around the wallet and you can choose how long you want it to me. My flap is less than half the front of the wallet
Decorate to whatever theme you would like. You can add stamped images, embellishments, bows, photos or any other desired pieces.
This will most likely take extra postage, depending on how much you add to the wallet.
I have made a quick You Tube video showing the simple steps:
I love the look of monochromatic cards. I think they are very elegant looking and yet I don’t think to do them that often.
I was inspired by a video I viewed of Alisa Tilsner. I asked if she would mind if I cased it because I loved the look so much. Here is my version:
The sepia look is a water-colored cake using Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso.
I stamped it with the crumb cake and then started layering on the colors using my aqua painter. I let it dry completely then cut fussy cut it out.
I sponged a base that measured 5″ X 3 3/4″ using the crumb cake ink. Next I took a scrap piece of whisper white and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sale A Bration stamp set, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. I tore the edges; hint – to get a better effect tear the paper towards you and more of the rough edge will show. I then sponged those edges.
Last but not least is the assembly and embellishments. I used a base of Early Espresso card stock 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 5 1/4 X 4″. The sponged piece with the cake is then layered on.
I used plenty of dimensional s behind the cake so it would stand up through the mail. I then added a touch of wink of Stella to the flowers for a little extra sumtin’ sumtin’, the final topping was five of the Champagne Jewels. I just love these beauties!
