Be Merry Pizza Box

I have said before that given my condition I need all the creative help I can get. It is a good thing that the Internet is full of talented stampers that love to share! I made this little pizza box, perfect for 3x3 cards and envies, using a tutorial from the Scor-Pal website. NOTE: I used the smaller variation provided by Valerie Stangle. You will find the measurements for this box at the very bottom of the tutorial.

If you don't already have a Scor-Pal, you need to get one of these AWESOME tools! I can help you get your Scor-Pal for half price, just email to find out how!

Supplies Used:
Penelope Soar With It
Collection Pattern Papers
, Cardstock and Ribbon
Joy of Christmas

Two Cards from Two Sketches

I have been relying heavily on sketches and challenges to get things done lately. I need to pack all the creativity I can into some very short hours. I made these two cards for a recent buffet using Heather Scott's Card Sketches. I used Card Sketch 49 for this Give Thanks card. I turned the card and left the corners square, but other than that it is pretty right on.

I used TAC's Brown and Ivory Cardstock, Green 2 Cardstock, Give Thanks, Spring Dream, Mega Scallop Circle Punch, Kai 4" Scissors (the BEST, a must have, for paper piecing), and Palette Burnt Umber Ink.

For this card I used Heather Scott's Card Sketch 46. I love the simple layout and need to remember to use it more often. If I would quit recreating the wheel for every card, I might actually get something done!

I used TAC's Kraft and White Cardstock, Tis The Season, Palette Burnt Umber Ink, PrismaColor Pencils, and Paper Piercer.

Thanks for stopping by!

I might be BACK!! Feeling better??

It has been so long...does anyone still read my blog? Give a shout on the comments if you do! I have some big news and it kinda explains why I have been missing in action. I am expecting a baby in June. It was a big surprise, and explains why I always feel so tired and sick! I am over 11 weeks now and almost done with the first trimester. I think I am starting to feel better, but I better not say that out loud. One can hope right? I have never lost so much energy with a pregnancy...I am just pooped all the time. I am starting to get excited about it, what a great surprise.

So now on to my TAC stuff. Even though I have not had energy to blog, I have been busy stamping! I have been doing craft fairs all through the season and I have been doing classes too. Here are some samples from my upcoming Trendy Tags Stamp Club. Stamp Club is next Tuesday at 6:30pm. It's not to late to get in on the fun and make some great Christmas tags and bags just in time for the holiday! Class only $23 and includes Trendy Tags, a $10.95 value. Let me know right away if you can attend!

We will be making a great bag o' Christmas Tags and matching Kraft gift bags. The Christmas projects feature TAC's Reece Soar With It Collection Papers, Cardstock and Ribbons, all will be 10% off to Stamp Clubbers that order in class. It is just in time for all of your Christmas wrapping needs. Plus you keep the stamp set, so if you want to make more it is super easy. Check out the next photo to see the individual tags included in the bag o' tags.

These are the tags included in the bag. Aren't they FUN? I had such a great time with Trendy Tags! All I had to add to this great stamp set was the star image from Christmas Minis and some great cardstock, great looking handmade tags made super quick and easy!

As I was working on the tags, my very good friend, Gayle said, "Wow! That {WISH} tag would make a great birthday tag...". That is when I just knew that I had to add a special surprise to this class! It is a surprise that makes Trendy Tags even more versatile and valuable to your stamp collection...READY?! Check out the last photo in this post for the last Stamp Club Project.

It is a bag o' BIRTHDAY tags! From a Christmas Tag stamp set...HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I love multi-taskers! By using TAC's Tutti Frutti Classic Soar With It Collection and a great little candle image from Mini Occasions, Trendy Tags is even more useful! Thanks for the great inspiration Gayle! I hope you like the way they turned out! In honor of Gayle, Stamp Clubbers will receive 10% off of Tutti Frutti Classic Soar With It Collections and Mini Occasions if ordered at class.

Just email me or call if you are interested in attending Stamp Club!

See ya on Tuesday!
