Don't Ever Let Someone tell you...

Hi,       Stampin' friends and crafters ,   Don't ever let some one tell can't do something because I'm here to tell you, you  absolutely can! If you put your mind to something and you want it bad enough and put your heart and soul into it, it can be done! I started with Stampin' Up on Jan 10th of this year and have achieved all three of these awards in less than one month. Three Month Achiever equals $300 a month for three months for a total of $900. Now don't let this scare you, it depends on what you want out of the company and your business. For me I wanted the 25% discount as soon as I could get it. If you break it done that's approximately 2 workshops a month at $150 a workshop and don't forget whatever you purchase goes towards your sales.  I joined for the discount so it was an absolute must to reach my goal. Six Month Achiever and Bronze Elite go hand in hand...when you get to 6-month quick start, you than promote to Bronze Elite. That

My Fun Creative Journey and creating with stamps...

  Hello all... I have something to share with all of you. The truth is I love all kinds of products and not just from one company. I've been going back and forth with Stampin'Up, Close to my Heart, Creative Memories, Shopping online and Magnolia Designs which is stencils, chalks, inks and home decor. My true passion is creating with paper, ink and stamps but because I kept trying different companies, I was never committed to one nor was I happy. Because of this I wasn't sharing things that I would make here on my blog due to being in violation of company rules or something. From now on I've decided to start sharing my projects and if you see something that inspires you, send me a message and I will be happy to tell you where it came from. I have decided to join Stampin'Up because they have all the things I like and the company I seem to keep going back too! Stamps, dies, stencils, mixed media, and cardmaking kits with instructions on how to complete or change it up

Creating with Stencils...

 Hi Friends, First time posting in this New Year! What???? It's October! Well Friends...I have spent this year and actually last year also, trying to figure out exactly what it is I wanted to do. I absolutely love creating and it's always been in paper crafts. I still do that on occasion, but I find doing DIY projects are just plain Fun...Right now I'm getting ready for the holidays and want to share with all of you. I'm going to start with a quick video on just how simple it is. My new favorite medium are silk stencils! Can I just say love! Now you can purchase bread boards from Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, just about any place. Tomorrow, I will give you an update on exactly where my stencils, paste, and in this case my bread board came from!  All I will say is Bread Boards are HOT right now in home decor. More to come. Can I just say how EASY this is!  I am back and very excited to get going in my new creative endeavor! Have a fabulous, creative day, Sandy

Happy 2022

 Hi Friends, Well, here we are 14 days into the New Year, when I realized I haven't even wished anyone a happy healthy, prosperous New Year. So Happy 2022!!! The holidays were very quiet and lonely, I missed seeing family and my Grandkids, however because of health issues, the winter months everyone seems to be fighting off flu or colds or Covid, which seems to not want to go away! So, beginning in Oct. all the way till about May, I isolate so that I don't get sick because I do have a compromised immune system and am on Oxygen 24/7. So, with all that being said, I want to share some things that I plan on doing this year. I hope to make more cards and start a card ministry, which I intend on sending to Nursing Homes, Women's Shelters, and anyone who needs to be cheered up! I do hope to share the cards I make on this blog in hopes to inspire you to start making cards. I also decided to try my hand at art journaling using Elizabeth Craft Products. I've never been one for j

Day 2 of the Twelve Days of Christmas

 Hi Friends, Today I have for you, a One Sheet Wonder to create 10, yes 10 Christmas Cards from one sheet of 12x12 Designer Paper or double-sided printed paper. This is not my idea; it is one I found on Glenda Calkins blog. She also has a you tube video on how to make the cards I'm showing you.  I made 2each of three of the fun folds, 1 ea of 2 different fun folds, and 2 regular cards. Here is the template I used . This comes from Glenda's Calkin's Blog....Thank you Glendađź’– What's different from her cards is that I chose to stamp sentiments on the inside of my cards so I used two Stamp Sets from Stampin' Up...  Supplies I Used: Designers Series Paper I used, Peaceful Prints, use what you have and match your cardstock to the paper. I'm just showing you what I used. Black Cardstock Basic White Cardstock Oval Punch or die Scalloped Oval Punch or die Reindeer Punch or die Garden Green Ink Black Ink Stamp sets{ Peaceful Deer and Christmas to Remember) Splatter from

Day One of the Twelve Days of Christmas...Join me Won't You?

Hi Friends, Come along with me for some fun... I thought for the our first project we could do a   Ghiradelli chocolate treat holder! This little matchbook-style box holds two chocolate squares and is easy to put together. These are fun to give out to cashiers and just about anybody when your out and about doing your errands and it's sure to put a smile on their face. My Elf says "this is the season of jolly and Falalala"! You can use any color cardstock I used Blushing Bride because it matched my designer paper. I used products from Stampin'Up. Ghirardelli Chocolate Treat Holder Measurements and Details:   Blushing Bride Cardstock: 10” x 3”  On the long side, score at 3-1/4” 6-1/2” and 7-1/4”  Die cut a 2-1/2” x 1-1/8” Stitched Rectangle from the Blushing Bride cardstock, leaving a 1/4” strip of cardstock between the die cut rectangle and the edge.
