Freebie Friday!

It’s Friday!  Or, Fri-YAY which means it is time for a FREEBIE!  I have an awesome gift for you today!  For November, I thought it would be good to get a jump on your thank you cards for the upcoming holiday season.

Everyone needs to send thank yous when you get a gift.  I’ve just made it easier for you to add these little cuties to your handmade cards or gift tags.

When I don’t see a stamp in my collection that fits the bill, I set about to create one that I can easily punch out or use a framelit with.  While I have lots of thank you stamps, sometimes the font doesn’t work with the card or project I have in mind.  So I set about to create something that I know I love and hopefully, you like as well.

Simply download this 8 1/2″ x 11″ onto your favorite white cardstock.   Each Thank You sentiment can be used with your 2″ circle punch from Stampin’ Up!  

Ideas for use:

  • handmade cards
  • packaging
  • stationery
  • tags and bags
  • gift wrap
  • scrapbook pages
  • whatever else you can think of…

And a quick card idea using these sentiments.  I love the NEW! Starburst punch that pairs nicely with 2″ circle punch.  As for the embossed leaf background.  This nifty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is brand new as well.  It is called Layered Leaves and you can see it here.

Let me know what you think of these sentiments.  I can’t wait to hear!

Christmas Card Buffet Classes

Upcoming Christmas Card Buffet

Card Buffet

These are just some of the cards you will be able to make at my upcoming Christmas Card Buffets.

Ready to make Christmas cards?   Then this is the class for you!

Just like a food buffet, you can pick and choose which cards you’d like to make, and how many of them. $40 fee covers your minimum of 8 cards. You can make more and if you have time, $1.50 per card.

All supplies, tools and envelopes are included!  However, you must bring adhesive.  If you need SNAIL adhesive, I will have some for purchase.

During this Christmas Card Buffet  there will be at least 10+ card design choices that are easy and simple to complete.












Garden In Bloom – Catalog CASE


My mission is to always try and make simple cards!  I found this card on page 139 of the Annual Catalog and set about to recreate it!  In case you missed it, (CASE, Copy And Share Everything) 

Of course, I don’t have the Blooms and Wishes stamp set, yet!  But I wanted to challenge myself to use something in my collection that would be similar.  I had to make a baby card and don’t have any of the baby stamps!

139The flower from Blooms and Wishes was similar to the flower from Garden in Bloom.  Don’t be afraid to check out your collection of stamps to see if you have something that would work.

I also grabbed my Banners For You stamp set as that had some leaves and dots that were perfect for the look I was trying to achieve.  The Congratulations On Your New Arrival came from the Better Together stamp set.  Check that one out because there are sentiments for many special occasions.
