What a Difference a Day Makes!

What a Difference a Day Makes!

So here we go!  Ann made the card in this post one way.  Then she swapped out the Daffodil Delight for Pool Party with our Yuba City Stamp Club.  And now that I’ve hidden the Very Vintage Designer Buttons, she added a butterfly instead! So how’s THAT for changing it up?!? I think it will make a great swap card for convention, don’t you? Uh-oh.  She just found the Very Vintage Designer Buttons. Before I finally share with you who won, I want to thank all of you for participating in our survey.  We love that you love us and the site.  Ann picked out the biggest, clearest font...

Six Sided Sampler & Digital Downloads

Six Sided Sampler & Digital Downloads

Don’t know why we haven’t used this much yet.  Could be because we lost our embossing folder.  But we got another one and we didn’t put it on this one either.  WE LOVE THIS BUNDLE!  And you should too!  Especially when we pair it with free Designer Series Paper! And we’ve been dying to use those Very Vintage Designer Buttons! This look is a little grungy.  Does that make it vintage?  It’s so different from the video we’re working on today for the Master Stamper.  That’s a beautiful clean dimensional lattice card with butterflies.  We run the range of...

Butterfly Birthday Card

Butterfly Birthday Card

Today’s butterfly card doesn’t have to be use ONLY as a birthday card.  It’s for any time that you want to grant a wish for your friend or loved one.  You could put a coupon in side for something special you’re going to do or throw in a gift certificate for their favorite store or experience.  (This pup loves a massage.) How appropriate because today’s Ann’s Mom’s birthday.  She’s up in heaven walking my predecessor, Johnny Walker, but we still remember her around here today as we do pretty much every day. I started to have Ann made the card...

Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer!

It’s the longest day of the year – the first day of Summer and we’re in trouble already!  We started this card, well, I won’t tell you YET where the card started.  You’ll have to wait for the video where it will all be revealed.  But once we got into it, I see we have TWO things!  We started wanting to show you this as Implied Layering.  Thought that was a 50 cent name for it.  Then when we were finishing up, Ann made that paper buckle and now I can’t decide! I just know I like it a lot! We’ll be back soon with a shopping list, video and the whole...

40% Off?  No Way!

While Ann was away, I’m having a great time of personal one on one with my favorite huMAN.  But while Ann’s gone, I just can’t keep some things from my personal stamping buddies.  Ann’s favorite teenager is graduating from high school today so we picked one of our favorite cards to case so she could give it to her. She liked it so much, she found a matching balloon for it! (Psst!  Remember to use the hostess code this week!  We’re approaching $50 in free stuff just in the first day.  Find out more in this post. Because Ann shared these swaps with with the Master...

Punch Art Easter Bunny

Ann was playing with punches.  I got this one away from her before she was finished.  I think she was planning on doing some piercing, but I'm pretty sure that the bunny wouldn't like it. So are you ready for Easter?  Stocked up on eggs?  Got your camera ready for all the pretty Easter dresses and the Easter Egg Hunt? This might be a good time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking.  Stampin' Up! has lowered the price of the My Digital Studio digital scrapbooking software from $79.95 to $19.95.  (We recommend getting the disks.)

Save the Date for Free Ice Cream!

Everyone seems so busy, you'd think that they were Jack Russell Terriers!  So I'm warning you now to Save the Date for some free Ice Cream!  Ben & Jerry don't live around here, but if they did, Ann would make sure to spend some time with them on April 9th.  So I designed this card so that she would remember to take me to Sacramento to visit Ben & Jerry and enjoy some ice cream with them on April 9th. Here's some of the stuff that I made this cool little card with.  You should've seen me with that new Rotary Stamp from the This & That...
