Paper Doily Die

When I have a creative block, I find it helpful to watch other people do the stamping.  That is why I love YouTube!  Stampin' Up! has their own channel featuring great projects with some of our latest and greatest products.

I loved the Doily Die when I first saw it in the Occasions Mini Catalog, but wasn't sure what to do with it.  I had also planned to demonstrate the use of this die in my "Cards to Die For" class and I was running out of time.  This video came to my rescue.

 

I was trying to use only the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper on my cards for this class, so I did alter Carrie's original design.  My customers loved it, even though it was a more-involved card than we usually do in class.

I'm back!!!!!

As you can imagine, I needed a little time off after Bella's recent illness.  I have started a new blog about our Crohn's journey called Honey Precious.  We saw her GI specialist last week, and even though Bella looks great and has tons of energy right now, we have been told that looks can be very deceiving.  Children with Crohn's Disease often look fine from the outside, but an active disease will keep them from growing and feeling their best.  So, if you ask me how she is doing......yeah, I'm not sure.  We'll know more as time goes by.

Now, I have been stamping a little.  It's mostly been on projects for UStamp with Dawn & Friends SCORE! and Big Shot Round Up, but I'm also working on my upcoming classes.  If you are local, be sure to check out my class schedule....there are some real treats in store for you!

Today I'm sharing a bunch of UStamp projects at once.  You can get the full tutorials for these projects and many, many more by visiting SCORE! or Big Shot Round UP.  It's worth every penny and I know you'll love the amazing projects.

And I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has contacted me about Bella.  I truly appreciate your concern, and for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you again!

Happy Stampin'
