New Stamps Received!!!

Well the last two days have been great for my stamping habit.

Yesterday I confirmed that Denami Designs is coming to my local stamp store in AZ, Stamp Works, to do their ever-famous Blitz classes. I am going with a group of friends and it should be a great time. We have already signed up for the March classes.

Today, my mailbox was filled with a big fat package from In Style Stamps. Really fast shipping--That's what I like. Anyway, I received some great card stock and shimmer papers but most importantly, I received 4 of their stamps. They are so SUPER CUTE. Check out their site at I am looking so forward to playing in my scrap room this weekend to see what I can come up with. I will make sure to share as soon as my creations are complete.

In the meantime, I decided to post a card that uses stamps to create a background paper. I used a set of Heidi Grace stamps for the background and the sentiment is from Fiskars. I used the Heidi Swapp edge distressing tool to give it a bit of texture. The whole look of the card is very organic, I wasn't necessarily going for that but was happy with the outcome.

Enjoy and have a great Thursday.

Happy Birthday Mackenzie!!!

So today is the day!! My niece Mackenzie officially becomes a teenager. She is just about the cutest 13 year old I have ever seen.

A while back we had talked about me making her invitations for her party. I decided that instead of a regular invite, I would create something she would hand deliver to her choice guests. . .Something memorable for the big 13.

Take a look at the invite "box" below and let me know what you think. Her friends were highly impressed and some even got in trouble at school for playing with it. It was super fun to make. I started them by myself but then she slept over one night and helped me finish them. She is the sweetest kid. . .So grateful that I would take time out to do this for her. I guess she doesn't realize she has me wrapped around her little finger. I would give her the world.

I have made my family their birthday cards for many, many years. Mackenzie keeps them all together in a special place. This is the card I gave her this year to add to her collection. It has a shaker box on the front with silver sequins and the inside of the card is a pop up stack of presents that I saw a demo of on You Tube. She loved it. Check out the pics:

Happy Birthday Mackenzie!!!

My New Blog

I am so excited to have my own blog to display my projects. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years but my passion is cardmaking. Lately, I am completely obsessed with rubber stamping. Don't get me wrong, I have been stamping for years but when I say I'm obsessed with it now. . .I mean OBSESSED!!!

Here is a card I just recently made with stamps from Whipper Snapper Designs, Stampin' Up, and the Happy Birthday sentiment is by Me and My Big Ideas. I colored in with Copics and added some shimmer with a clear Spica.
