Garden Shed

Garden Shed Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Wow, was it ever beautiful this weekend!  I spent the weekend piddling around in my yard soaking up the sunshine and digging in the dirt.  All that gardening gave me the urge to pull out my Garden Shed stamp set by Stampin' Up! and make something fabulous.  What a dreamy garden shed!  For an added burst of color,  I fashioned some quick and easy flowers made with the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape and Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

The coloring was therapeutic.  I just started coloring with my Stampin' Blends until my picture was complete.  Wouldn't you just love to have such an adorable Garden Shed?  The Cajun Craze Blends are perfect for coloring clay pots.  I colored my shed with Soft Sea Foam and added a burst of sunshine with a So Saffron Door.  The greenery was colored with my tried and true Old Olive.  

Would you like a little peek at what's blooming at my house?


I couldn't resist snapping a shot of my trilliums also known as Wake-Robins.

My rhubarb looks lovely this year.  We've already enjoyed a yummy Rhubard Pie this year.

Positive Thoughts Card and Wall Art

Positive Thoughts Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

In today's video learn how to make this beautiful monochromatic card using the Positive Thoughts stamp set and the new Nature's Thoughts Dies by Stampin' Up!.  Once you have mastered the art of card making, you might want to take your paper crafting to the next level with Wall Art like the one in the picture above.  It is simply a bigger, grander rendition of the card.


Use the images and phrases in the Positive Thoughts stamp set to create a bouquet of affirmation for someone you love.

Desk Top Calendar From My Craft Room

Snowmen Season Stampin' Up!

January Calendar Snowmen Season #150458

Hello Friends,

Today is the very last day to order from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and tomorrow the new catalogs including the Mini and the Sale-a-bration catalogs begin, so I thought that it might be fun to make a Mini calendar using stamps, dies and punches from my craft room.  The base of all my calendar pages is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2", so they are really like making card fronts.  I simply plan to clip a new calendar up each month.  How simple is that?
