New Spring Cards

Hi Everyone!

I’m on Spring Break and have finally had some time to use some of my newer materials!  I’ve been surfing the internet for some cute ideas and have come up with several  “case-d” ideas!  The Forest Friends Box is from my upline Angie (aka Chic n’ Scratch) and the rest came from “De Stampin’ Corner”…changed just a little.  Enjoy!

Got to go…I’ll come back later and update with a materials list…dinner calls! 🙂  Happy Spring Break!

November Class Projects

Just a quick post to show you what we’re making this month for our Stampin’ Class:

(I’ll come back later and  post details…but everything is Stampin’ Up!)





The middle two were CAS’ED from Inking Idaho and I think that the first and fourth were from ideas I saw on SplitcoastStampers.  I’m getting ready for a Holiday Bazaar on Thursday…e-mail me if you would like more info on where to find out where I’ll be!  I have three 20 gallon tubs and several Stampin’ Up! boxes full of things to sell! 😉

Future Projects

Here are some other things we will be working on soon! 🙂  Both these ideas came from Becky’s site Inking Idaho (see two posts ago about downloading the template)



This one uses the Christmas Punch Hostess (Level 2) set from the new catty!




This one uses retired DSP (Ski Slope) from the Fall/Winter 2008 catalog–just using up my stash! 🙂

Post it Note Holder and a Pumpkin…

So since, I’m sitting here bored out of my mind and almost finished with laundry, I decided to make some Post It Note holders inspired by Angie! 🙂




I found this pumpkin at Dawn’s Stampin’ Thoughts and decided to make several for later in the year when I do my Holiday Bazaar! 🙂


I also made this Monarch Butterfly Pin, after seeing one on Amy Celona’s page.  Mine is far from done yet…I’m waiting for my Pretties’ Kit to arrive by UPS man so that I can finish his body and attach the pin to the back:


Stampin’ Up Sets for Sale

Here are some sets I’m getting rid of to make room for new ones…

E-mail me if you’re interested and I will hold them for you–I’ll let you know about shipping when you e-mail me! 🙂 I can take pictures if you want to see them–I just can’t find my camera right now! 🙂  I will accept checks/money order by mail, and send sets after check clears. If you’re local, you can pay cash.

Also for those of you joining my scrapping/card making group, I will have these for sale (the ones that don’t sell here).

I’ll post SOLD next to sets that are spoken for and paid for.

Nervous Breakdown!!

I JUST HAD to get out my new Stampin’ Up DSP and make some cards–I am SOOOO tired of making wedding things!  I am about to lose my mind!  I finally had an hour to myself where I was able to get out some of my new paper, die cut blooms, rub-ons, twill ribbon, and make me some cards!! ~*~*~*~I am SOOOOO EXCITED!!! ~*~*~* Can you tell??  I also started a new blog for teachers and am super excited about already being up to 600 hits in 2 days!  You can visit my other blog here: Kristen’s Kindergarten!.

On to the cards…

Oh, and I also made a super cute photo holder out of a binder clip too!  I had to use my scraps of course!  I see a trip to my binder clip drawer at school in the very near future!

Happy 4th!

No Time My Friend…

So, I’ve got NO time for card making, scrapbooking, or making anything crafty!  😦  Report cards need to be finished by the 29th, and I have to pack up and move my entire classroom down the hall to make room for a new 1st grade class.  I’m glad because I get to teach Full Day Kinder. next year–but I hate moving–maybe it will give me a chance to purge 18 copies of things I don’t really need!  Anyway–my Stamping Club started back up again on Saturday–god how I miss that!!  I finally got my rub-ons from SAB in March!!!  I got a few blank canvases (okay coffee mugs!) and started rubbing away!  Here is my first one–like it?  Very simple, but I think it rivals Starbucks!  It’s for sale-$8 and it’s yours!
