Beautiful Snow, Beautiful You

Isn't it a beautiful afternoon ~ as long as you can stay inside and watch the beautiful snow from the warmth of your home.  

SWAP card in blue


Three more swap cards today using the stamp set BEAUTIFUL YOU on page 24 in the Occasions catalog.  The set includes three females in different poses and eight sayings for you to use.  Sorry but all the swaps I received used the same pose!  The other two include 'walking with an umbrella' and 'dancing'.   The first & third cards use the PAPER PIECING technique stamping the image a second time on designer series paper and cutting out the clothes to 'dress' the pretty lady.  Lots of possibilities with this set!

Dragonfly Dreams

I recently participated in two swaps with demonstrator friends ~ one in Florida and one in PA.  Yesterday the mailman delivered the swaps back to me ~ it is always such a treat to open the big envelopes full of new cards made by demonstrators from across the country.  I will post the swaps on the blog so that you can see the variety of possibilities for the stamp sets in the Occasions Catalog and the SAB brochure.  Today I am posting four cards that I received using the stamp set, Dragonfly Dreams, on page 26 in the Occasions Catalog.

2017? Amazing!

Happy New Year

I hope you and your family have a fabulous and amazing year!  It has been a quiet day here as I definitely needed to go back to bed to try to sleep off cold symptoms that kept getting worse.  This afternoon I was able to complete my thank you notes to my friends and family.  I ran out of the ones I made with the stamp set, Frosted Medallions.  Luckily I quickly ran into a card kit from the SALE-A-BRATION brochure (as a Demonstrator we can order a month ahead of our stamping friends ~ yea!).  I finished making eight cards in about 15 minutes and went back to my thank you notes ~ so excited to have this quick and easy kit ~ just when I needed it!


This is the PRETTY POCKET CARD KIT ~ everything is included!

Cards, close up

The kit includes the pocket card basis with adhesive strips, white envelopes, die cut printed pieces and stickers and some Baker's Twine (which I haven't added yet) ~ so easy and so quick!  Love having a 'save the day' moment!  HAPPY 2017!  Blessings to you and your family.  Susan Elise
