Gather Together

Hi Friends,
What???? Can you believe it's the middle of August already with Fall right around the corner. So what does this mean for us Crafters? HOLIDAY CRAFTING of course!!! I thought I would start with a pretty Fall Card that could be used for Thanksgiving or just a simple seasonal card and change out the sentiment.

Want the Card Kit FREE including directions to make this card!!! I will mail you via snail mail all the pre-cut cardstock, embellishments and printed directions. You will need a clear block and your own adhesive, inks and of course the two stamp sets featured below to complete. If you would like a detailed list of supplies including the inks I used click here to view. When you spend $35 with me I will automatically send you the kit.

Zen Leaves AT-0315                                                                      Gather Together AT-0305
     Both Stamp Sets are      only $8.95 each!      

If you have any questions please contact me and I will do my best to help you.

Have a creative day,

I'm a subscriber and each month I get a Full Size Stamp Set along with all the embellishments, all pre-cut card stock and a booklet with all the directions to complete cards. You will also be able to view a video showing (how to) on techniques...which brings me to why I'm a subscriber.

Coffee and a Card

!Hi Friends...
Today I'm sharing this card Simply Blessed...We will be making this card in my Coffee and a Card Meet-Up Group. If you live in the Kankakee County or close to...I would love you to join my Meet-Up group Handmade Cards and Paper Crafts  here

For those of you who do not live in the area I would love to send you the kit to make this card! All you need to do is place a $25.00 order with me. All the cardstock pieces will be cut and ready for you to put together along with embellishments and directions to complete card. I cannot stamp the sentiment for you, so if you want the card to be exactly as above you will need to purchase the stamp set  Farmyard Friends / SS-0609, and you will also need White Embossing Powder / IP-0098 and either clear pigment ink or Versa-Mark to stamp sentiment and of course a heat gun.

Have a creative day,

FSJ Holiday Mini Catalog

Hi Friends...

Today is the DAY the Holiday Mini goes live...YEAH! Full of awesome stamps, accessories, and ideas...want to see a project I made with supplies from this catalog?
This is my first Christmas Project... It could be a gift bag decoration or tag but I made it sturdy enough for a Christmas Ornament with lots of chunky glitter on the branches. I used the Cozy Prints Paper Pack from FSJ and the garden fence die to make the rosette and the Branch and Pine Cone Die. The deer comes from the Merry Everything Stamp Set  … I fussy cut the deer and added a bow to make him festive
You can click here to view the holiday mini!

Have a creative day,
