A quick card using the Floral Affection Embossing Folder

Hi friends!


I'm having a great time with my 13 yr old grandson.

He is my Director/Producer/Editor and Videographer!

So here is a video that we just finished.


Love the card –easy and so adaptable for any occasion!

I used the new Sweet Sugarplum Card stock, Blooms & Bliss DSP and  the Floral Affection embossing folder


What do YOU think?




Stay tuned !


More fun to come!

Monday Night Class and photos of pretty cards!

Hi all!


Ok here are the cards we made today.  We used the Number of Years stamp set and the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper.


What do YOU think?

2016-05-01 19.32.41

Note that the medallion does NOT have anything in it but everyone used the Big Shot to cut out numbers to put inside it. This is my card and as of this moment I don't know who will get it –hence no numbers!

2016-05-01 19.32.54


I just love this one –what do YOU think????


2016-05-01 19.33.07


This one and the next used the same format –simple and sweet.

2016-05-01 19.33.17


Everyone made 2 of each design AND then we made a cute pocket to hold them.

It ties on the side with the ribbon. A very nice Mother's Day or gift for someone sweet!

2016-05-01 19.33.31


Ok that's it!!


Now for tomorrow's class we 'll make these cards. This is the new stamp set commemorating the ONE MILLIONTH Paper Pumpkin kit !!

I absolutely love this card –the colors are Wisteria Wonder and Mint Macaron –love love love it!

2016-05-01 18.55.16


I'm sure I'll have another card for tomorrow  but right now I MUST go watch my dear Red Sox with my sweet husband — or at least until I fall asleep!

Hope to see you tomorrow night!


hugs to all and welcome the merry month of MAY!
