I have another video tutorial for you today. You can tell that I am still getting over a cold that I got last week. I spent three days on the couch last week and even took a nap on my bed one day. I never do that! Fortunately, I am feeling a lot better but there is still a little congestion.
I got the inspiration for this card and box on Pintrist. I have to admit that I would have never thought of using the Floral Phrases Thinlits and the Botanical Builders Framelits dies for Christmas cards. But I REALLY like the way these turned out. As I mention in the video, the card is decorated exactly as you would the box. So I only go over creating and decorating the box in this video.
I hope to have another Christmas gift video for you in the near future.
Before I forget, check the very bottom of this post to see this month’s special offer from Stampin’ Up! Ooooooo…you are gonna love it!
Hope you enjoy!
Until next time…

I hope everyone is doing well. We are having a BEAUTIFUL autumn here in Colorado Springs. The weather is warm and the colors are magnificent. They along with the colors on the Paisley & Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper have inspired me for the cards I am sharing today.
I’ve been working on this set of three tutorials for these three Fall cards for about a week and thought it was time to share it with all of you. I’ve used two of my favorite stamp sets; Paisleys & Posies and Vintage Leaves.
Just a minor editing note: I forgot to flip the third video so you wouldn’t have to watch me work upside down. 😦 I realized this AFTER I deleted my raw footage. Sorry. If that bothers you, you could always do a little yoga and stand on your head while you watch. 🙂
As always, there is a printable tutorial for you to download at the end of this post. I hope you enjoy watching and making these cards as much as I did.
Here is the link for the printable tutorial!

It has been way too long since I’ve posted anything here! I am just now getting back into the swing of things. It was a busy, busy summer for me. It started in June with a two-week visit from my sister and brother-in-law, a three-week visit from my mom in July, and a two-week trip back home with my mom in August. Once I got back I had a club to prepare for and then it was right into getting ready for the booth I shared with a friend at the Colorado Springs Women’s Living EXPO 2016 last weekend. I think things are back to normal…whatever “normal” is.
I’ve had this card and box done for a while. I’ve been wanting to share it with you. But I wanted to create a video to go along with the box and card.
I finally had the opportunity to create a video for them today. I’ve done this project in two parts. Part 1 is the card and part 2 is the box. I hope you enjoy. There is a PDF file you can print if you like. There is a list of items you need at the end of this post and in the printable PDF.
Enjoy yourself while you watch and create. Let me know how things turn out.
Here is the link for the PDF file I promised.
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…
