Embossing Folders by Stampin' Up

Hi Crafters,
I thought I would take a few pictures of what some of Stampin' Up's Embossing folders look like.  I inked them up so you could see the details!  All embossing Folders are $7.95 and made especially for our company.  There's also a picture of an embossing folder by itself!  Enjoy!

Keep on crafting,

A CASE'd card from Patty Bennett and using My Digial Studio

Hi Crafters,
Here's my new video!  I CASE'd a card from Patty Bennett's website!  She used DSP called Love Letter and you can only get 1 floral design from that 12 x 12 sheet and if nothing else I am frugal when I need to be and I haven't done a video using My Digital Studio yet so I figured today was as good as any day to start!  Patty's card is BEAUTIFUL and they say "imitation is the truest form of flattery" so here goes....
I used My Digital Studio and the download version of 'Love Letter' DSP and show you how I used the download that can make 4 cards instead of 1.  Hope you enjoy it!

So as always, keep on crafting,

Happy Valentines Day

Hi Crafters,
I thought I'd let you know my Sweet Valentine Card went over great!  (see video below)  My hubby loved it and showed it to everybody that came by today and said "isn't this a beautiful card?  My wife made it for me!!! "   I'm glad my hubby and kids like my handmade things cuz that's about all they get from me!  If I bought something from a store they would probably think I didn't love them anymore! LOL!  I realize not all people like handmade gifts but I feel they are the most precious memories you can have, just knowing someone cared enough to make something special!  Anyone can pick up something at the store but I love crafting and I love to make these memorable gifts for my family and friends!  This is another reason I love Stampin' Up products, I am very happy to teach others that aren't as familiar with crafting and help them along so they soon LOVE it too!  We all are better at some things than others and visa versa!  I happen to LOVE crafting so much I want to help others at least enjoy it too! 

I hope everyone had as good a day as I did!  Just to see the sun shine and blue skies made my day!  As you get older you contemplate more and appreciate the world around you more and are grateful for the days you have with family and friends!  Life is short....Live, Laugh and Love to the max!  God Bless each and every one of you!

Let's keep crafting,

One Last Valentine Card Video

Hi Crafters,

 Here's a new video of one last Valentine Card that I'm gonna give my hubby!  I saw this idea on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.  I just used different colors of DSP and put my own little personal touches on it!

OH, OH, OH, also below is s PDF of a charming little box to give your special someone some great goodies along with this card!  It saw it on by a lady named Roxy but I can't remember the website name.  Anyway, I realized it could be folded flat like the other folding box I demo'd.  It uses Love Impressions DSP!  Too cute really!

Have a wonderful Valentines Day! XXOOXXOO
Until next time...

File Folder Note Book

Hi Crafters,
Here's a look at another handy holder for pads, sticky notes, a calendar and pens!  This one is on SCS and other sites but this one I found by Jenn Diercks on SCS under SU Demonstrators. 
This is my version of that project...
       I used a regular manila file folder and covered it with DSP inside and out.
USE STICKY STRIP...for flap to keep pockets closed, snail can be used for all else.
1 - file folder
2 - 12" x 12" pcs DSP  Petals & Paisleys
1 - Note Pad 5" x 8" and cut bottoms off pages so it's 6 7/8" long
1 - Gel Pen (clear barrel so you can decorate inside) any size
1 - 3" x 3"  sticky note pad
1- 2" x 1 1/2" sticky note pad
1 - calendar no larger than  3"h x   4"w  I use 2 1/2" h x 3 1/2"w
1 - 2" x 5" pc for top of notepad to make it match
1 - 1/2" x ? (whatever the length of your pen is) roll around ink cartridge and slide back in barrel Wa-la...matching pen!
1 - set of hook & loop or magnet  closures
Score 1/2" left of center fold on opened file
Score at 12 1/2" and 13"
Score (turn 90 degrees) bottom of folder at 3 1/8"

Cut off 2 1/4" from left side of folder
Cut off tabs on right side so it is straight
Cut off right side bottom 2 pieces to score lines
Use snail adhesive to place DSP on folder
Use Sticky Strip on right and left side of 3 1/8" piece and fold up to make pocket
Take Calendar, punch small holes in top sides, use brads to hold it together and attched to pocket on bottom left side of file folder
Place sticky notes above pocket on left side with sticky strip
Place note pad on right side inside pocket
Place velcro closure on left flap and close to adjust
use ribbon and/or whatever embellishment you would like
All Done!
