As promised, I have a video for you this week. I got this idea from Pintrist. I just love that site. You can get ideas for EVERYTHING on there. I was surfing through it one day and got the idea for decorating a bar of soap. As always, the link to a printed tutorial is here.

I am not posting a video today. I will try to get one posted for this month by the early part of next week. On Wednesday, my mother will be visiting from Ohio for three weeks, and I know that once she gets here there won’t be much stamping going on. Mom and I usually cook when she visits. We cook all of those things I grew up eating but normally don’t make. One thing I would like to make while she is here is wedding soup. I will do all of the work; she will just guide me through the process. In other words, she will supervise. 🙂
Today’s card is one I made last weekend after my up line posted a template for all of us to use. This is what I came up with. This isn’t your standard size card in that it measures 3-1/2″ x 6″. You will need a piece of 12″ x 12″ card stock to make it. I used the Vertical Greetings stamp set to make it. Here is the template I used.
Here is the card I created.
As I stated earlier, the card base measures 3-1/2″ x 6″, so you will need to cut a piece of 12″ x 12″ card stock to measure 3-1/2″ x 12″ and fold it in half. You will also need to use the envelope punch board to create an envelope for the card. This size card CAN be mailed. The smallest size the post office will accept is 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. The Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper measures 3-7/8″ x 3-1/2″, and I used the largest banner from the Banners Framelits.
Hope you like it. It’s a really easy card to make. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time…
It has been awhile since I posted last because June has been a busy month. The first two weeks were spent on vacation while my sister and brother-in-law visited from Ohio. We spent the better part of the two weeks traveling with them. We drove to both Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks in Utah, Las Vegas, Nevada, and finally Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. While in Southern Colorado we also visited Four Corners Monument. It is part of the Navajo Nation’s Parks and Recreation and the only place in the United States where four states, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado meet at one point.
Unfortunately vacation went by way too quickly and before I knew it, they were back on an airplane headed home. It was tons of fun and I am looking forward to the next time we are together. I’ve been trying to think of when I can get back there and an excuse for going, but decided I don’t need an excuse other than I want to visit my family. Maybe I will make a trip this fall before bad weather sets in. My mom is scheduled to visit in July and I am really looking forward to that.
I’ve got another video for you today along with a tutorial you can download and print, . I seem to remember promising my up line at On Stage that I would do a video each month so I am getting this in just in time. :) In case you haven’t noticed, I love to make 3-D things. Today’s card is a small one that fits inside a box. I used the Love & Affection stamp set along with ALL of the new In Colors which I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. This card is one we made at this month’s club. We didn’t do the box.
If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me. Until next time…
