Project #5, Slimline Tropical Bird Card

Hi, y'all!
Today, I have a Slimline card 
to share with you, because why not?



I used Vellum cardstock behind the 
birdcage die cut, popped up the birdie, 
and the sentiment, and even did some 
coloring with my Stampin' Up Blends. 
 


As always with my Stampin' Up projects,
a Worksheet is available 
to download/save/print.
It includes all the measurements
& details so you can make this card too!

Don't you love not having to figure 
out measurements? 
I do! 

Find ALL project worksheets HERE.

Project #1 Cherry Trio Card

I'm so happy to finally share cards I made 
with some of my new Stampin' Up goodies! 


Project Worksheet
to view, download, print
Worksheet PDF instructions & supply list
to make this card

I have 2 very sweet friends I wanted to send a little something to, so I made 3 of these cards. One for my stash, and one for each of them. I also sent them some supplies to make this card themselves if they wanted. Hopefully they liked their little surprise. 

If you'd like to download the PDF instructions and supply list, click here. You can save this to your computer files, or print it out for your 3-ring binder. I plan on doing lots of these worksheets, so feel free to print and save them for future inspiration when your mojo has gone on a hike. :)

Hello all my Crafty Friends!


First of all, sorry for not having a project to post yesterday or already today. Hopefully I can get some creative things happening in my craft room later today for that.


We've gotten moved into our house, and are probably 80% done with unpacking, organizing, and setting up furniture. The only things that are left are finishing up Bonnie's room with furniture, decorating, organizing; getting the Tonal installed at our new place in the exercise room, organizing and finish unpacking things that stay in the garage, and a major part for me... getting my craft room unpacked and organized.


I've been putting that off because well, other things are more important, and mainly because THE ELECTRICITY IN THERE DOESN'T WORK! .... deep breaths.... breathe in the good.... push away the bad.... give me a moment.....

For some reason plugging in anything in that room trips the breaker. That room. Not a closet, or an outdoor light... THAT room. //sigh//

The electrician came out yesterday. Couldn't find the problem, so switched out the breaker thinking that may do the trick. It did. For a few hours. When I got up this morning and went in there to FINALLY unpack and organize, I turned on my laptop to check my email first.... no power. Yep - breaker is tripped again.

So I put in another call.  I told Tom I was unpacking my craft room anyway. I'm not waiting anymore. We've been here 11 days and it's killing me to have that mess of boxes in there, plus the fact that I can't get to my stuff to play.  Spoiled? Yes. I admit that. But considering my crafting things have been packed for a little over a month now since I scheduled things to post in advance and packed up that long before we moved, that means I haven't had craft therapy for sooooooooooooo long.



If you've read this far...
GOOD NEWS!!!!

My Paper Pumpkin came Tuesday!
and
My Stampin' Up starter kit came Tuesday!!

My first Stampin' Up order arrives today!!

I hope y'all are having a fabulous day!

Camping Anyone?

Hey, Friends!!


I love camping, although we haven't been in years. We used to go all the time when the kids were growing up - meaning 2-3 times a month on the weekends during the school year. I loved it!
