The New Catalog is Here!! Yeah!!! These are some samples that I made with the preview sets from the New Catalog!

Check back frequently for more new catalog ideas!

I have been away for the past couple of weeks. One trip to Las Vegas for my college reunion. A second trip to Buffalo to celebrate my Mother's birthday.

Here is a sample tile coaster that I made for my college friends that attended the class reunion.

Happy Stamping!

Raku & Stamping

These are a couple of Raku pieces (forgive me Mary if I spelled these wrong!). My friend Mary has been taking Raku Sculpting classes. She has used some of her stamps on the attached images. If you are interested in seeing more of her artwork - email her at

Flip Book Sample

Good Morning! I broke out my camera this morning and took some pictures of items that I made last week. This is a flip book that I made from the SU designer paper.

Below is a card that My Sister-in-Law made for my daughter's birthday. Love the bling on the Card!! I can't wait to try out the SU rhinestone brads that I will be receiving today!!

Punch ideas

I made this cheat sheet for all the great punches that Stampin' Up! offers! There are some great ideas!

Lunch Box Tins

These tins are great for storing cards or giving as gifts. I have a couple left if you are local and interested in making one. Stop by for one of my open stamp days!

Natural Inspirations

Thoughts for a Rainy Monday.

This is a picture of a hawk that was sitting in my in-laws tree - just hanging out last week. He sat there for about an hour!

Faux Scalloped Punch

I am so excited!! I actually have been more inspired today!

I was playing around with the idea that Leigh O'Brien posted. I love the way you can use the slit punch to highlight circles and ovals. A faux scallop punch look!

I am working on favors for DD's birthday party later this week. I'll post them tomorrow.

Scrapbook Tins

Welcome to my Blog! Today is the first day that I am trying this out. So check back frequently for ideas. My plan is to post items that I am working on a couple of times a week.

My next stamping class is next week on Wed. June 6th. We will be covering the 5x5 artwork journal and making a spring themed scrapbook tin. I have just finished all the prep work for this class. THat is 5 days early! A major accomplishment for me!

I am also teaching the scrapbooking class with a Father's Day theme at The Scrapbookers Dream - a new scrapping store that has just opened in Tewksbury. The store is great and has fantastic ideas!
