Have you ever been woken up abruptly and couldn't go back to sleep, from a storm, noise, etc.? This happened to me this morning. I heard the sound of broken glass and then the vacuum at 12:30am. My husband was turning the lamp off and broke a glass container…Continue

Hey everyone! I hope you're having a great day. I know my day will be much better…Continue
Well, it finally happened. I've lived in this house for 11 years and the air conditioner went out yesterday. As luck would have it, it's in the 80's right now. Normally I would love the warmer weather but not so early in the year. There's plenty of time for it to be in the 80's. Where is the nice, Spring weather? I have three dogs and I was worried that they would get too hot. It was almost 80 degrees in the house. What was I doing during all of this? Making cards, what else?…Continue

Welcome to another Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the StampTV forum here. Today we have a color challenge for you courtesy of Melissa Shultz! We were to create a card or project based…Continue
We're finally seeing signs of Spring here in Lake St. Louis, MO. The temps are in the 70's and low 80's. This beautiful weather is trying to compete with my card making time. I wish I could make them outside! I sat outside yesterday on my patio furniture under the umbrella, there was a light breeze and no bugs.
I've been busy making cards for the Gina K 3 year anniversary challenges. I've really been enjoying doing this because it challenges me to create cards I…Continue

I hate doing this, because each and every one of you have taken the time to comment on my cards.
For the past six days, I've had migraines. They come and go, but mostly come (and stay!) and I can't stay on the computer for very long at the moment. So I'm making a blanket thank you to everyone.
Thank You So Much, dear friends.
You all brighten up my day each and every day I'm on StampTV. I love seeing your gorgeous creations, and spending time…Continue
Well, another successful release party has come and gone and now all that's left to do is inpatiently wait on my order. :)
I always want it immediately after seeing all of the beautiful cards the designers created and of course, Gina's videos.
Today is the last day of Winter. Thank Goodness! It seemed like the longest Winter even though it really wasn't a bad one. I live in the St. Louis area and we barely got 5 inches of snow total. The previous year we got over…Continue
It is no doubt that somewhere in the vast universe of the web that someone else has posted and probably youtubed this technique, but since it is new to me I thought I would share it with ya'll.
Needing an ink color, which of course I did not have, and being the “use what you have” type I started experimenting with my Prismacolor premier pencils.
The first step was to color a thick layer of color onto a scrap piece of cardstock, then thin with baby oil. The baby oil did soak…Continue

Oh, so excited! I splurged, spent more than I wanted to but unfortunately I can't get the clear gel pens any more as they're not being stocked now and also the 6pack of stamp storage folders has been axed as well. :o( I've only had the opportunity to buy one six pack, which wasn't enough before this purchase... and now I'll have to buy them separately from now on.
But! I did buy the petals and wings stamp tv kit, (free believe in yourself set), wild flowers set, a year of borders,…Continue

Here is my first attempt at a tutorial. I thought I'd share with you how I made my woven napkin rings. I hope you all like it.
I started by using the left over tubing from a roll of wrapping paper and 40mm score tape.
I wrapped a piece of tape around the end of the tube and cut the tube even with the tape.…Continue
Continue wrapping the woven paper around entire tube as shown.
Cut the excess paper off.
Using glue dots, fold the tabs in and glue them to the inside of the tube.…Continue
Here is a simple rose that I made using a coffee filter. I cut 5 flowers with Spellbinder's Rose Creation die cutting set. I used two different sizes for this flower.
The three bottom layers are the same size. The top two layers are the same and slightly smaller than the bottom flowers. After cutting out the five flowers, I cut a small circle out of card stock…Continue
