Father's day shirts...

Hi there!

Well I had so much fun going back through my supply of "masculine" designer series paper and looking for designs for these shirts!

Take a look at some of the "designer" shirts...


Can you recognise any of this paper? I just love the orange and black one from a halloween package of DSP from a few years ago! This would make a great "retro" party invite. :)

If you would like to learn how to make one of these shirt cards, just click here to watch the video. So easy!

Have a fantastic day!




Masculine cards...

Hi there!

Today I would like to share with you the cards we made at my Masculine Stamp-A-Stack class. 

I was inspired by my fellow demo friends on Stampin Connections for the ideas for these cards. :) I don't remember who specifically designed each one but if you did, let me know and I'd be happy to give you credit here!

 I had so much fun with the ladies at this class! Each person went home with 2 each of these 5 different designs. So 10 cards in total! They've got their masculine "stash" of cards for Father's day and birthdays coming up!

Need a card for Father's day this weekend? I have several of these already made up! If you see a card here that you like, contact me and if you live in the area you are wecolme to pop by and purchase for just $3 each.


I hope your having a great day!!







Hi there!

Thanks for checking back! Yes.. I've been missing in action again! Sorry....but that's excatly what I've been... in action!!

Whew! What a week.. I was gone all last weekend for a Scrapbooking retreat with my wonderful friends. :) I just love to get a way and focus on scrapbooking, and I am excited to share my pages with you in the next few days!

I have been busy working on our recent trip to Florida and our Carribean Cruise. I decided to do the Disney world part of the trip in MY Digital Studio and the rest of the trip in traditional scrapbooking. I have to say I am pleased with my decision and I will plan to do more of my scrapbooking this way. I don't think I will ever  be able to give up my love for the "traditional" scrapbooking but I do love how quick and easy I can "whip" up some pages in MDS! Once they are printed I can add a little "bling' to them before slipping them into my album.

I used the space below my title on the page above to put our Cirque-De-Soliel tickets. I just attched them together with an antique brad and fanned them out and they fit perfectly here!

Because I am a "double page scrapbooker"...here's the right side of the pair :)

I hope you like the pages and I will be back tomorrow with some pictures from my Masculine stamp a stack!!

Take Care!

Let's make room for some cool new stuf!!!

Hi there!

It's that time again!! It's June 1st and Stampin up! has announced all the products that will be retiring from the Catalogue!!! Why do they retire stamps sets you ask? To make room for all the NEW stuff in the brand new Idea Book and Catalogue that is available in July 1st!!

Click here to see all the stamp sets that are retiring!!

Click here to see all the accessories that are retiring!!

Click here for all the retiring Definiitely Decorative products!!

The accessories and decor elements are only available until supplies last, which means if you've had your eye on a particular embellishment you should order it soon to avoid disappointment! You can place your order online (to be sent to your door) or contact me and I can add it on to an order and get it for you that way.

The stamp sets will be available until June 30th and after that day... they are gone for good! I always have mixed feelings around this time of year, as I am sad to see some of my very favorite stamps get retired but I am excited to see the new stuff that they replace them with.

I will be sharing projects with many of the retiring stamps for the month of June, as my way of saying farewell to some of my absloute favorite stamp sets. :)

For today's project share, I would like to show you this spage I made using My Digital Studio.

Disney page 4-001 

It's a very simple page that uses all circle punches. The Mickey shape was made with circle punches and filled with black cardstock and then the pictures were shaped into circles with the click of one button. So easy!

Take Care!!
