FYI this message is in reguards to a post that only those of you who have Google reader may have seen, but has been deleted. I would like to inform you why it is now gone.

I have recieved many emails RE: that particular post, and I appreciate the support, and other opinions. 

 This post was done in response to an email I recieved from someone, whom I thought was asking for my help in using my family situation with Alexa, to work to aid families with difficult decisions, in a way that was upsetting to me, personally.

The reason for deleting the post, was that the intent of the writer’s email to me was not what I had initally percieved it to be. Upon recieving my repsonse to her, she quickly saw the misunderstood message I got from her email.

 All was cleared up, as I went to the link provided. We have connected back and forth since then.

I am not sorry for the conents of my inital opinion in the email, had that been her intent. 

Just wanted to clarify this with those who have expressed their concerns, re: the inital post. I am unable to answer and thank you all personally 😀

I was giving my personal expierience on my family situation.

Today has been a bit of a crazy day!

I got my Dec. 2007 issue of Paper Crafts and I have a card in there using my FAVORITE set-Jolies Fleurs on page 92!

I am also so happy to finally announce that I was asked to be a part of a NEW! Stamp company called “A Chemistry With Paper“. You may have seen some of their banner ad’s on SCS! I received some images to work with today-so keep checking in here for some samples 😀

View the Design team page—>HERE

They have kicked off the opening of their company with 18 fabulous sets. They are clear acrylic polymer-made by Stewart Superior.

I hope you will check them out. I know I went crazy for their artistry.

I am excited and honored to begin my work with them 😀 Sharon and I have spoke a few times on the phone, and she is just amazing.

What does this mean?

Well it means you are going to see some rockin samples with her images 😀

I am continuing my work with my other companies as well. So no worries there 😀 I’m just adding this to my list of much loved companies.

Promise you will be needing these in your collection too 😀

Thanks to all of you for sharing my excitement. I get so much energy from all of you here, who share my life and love of stamping! I love reading about you all as well! Your sweet words, and comments make my day 😀

Now I must go STAMP!!!

Till later.

Oh I am SO in the Christmas spirit! I want to just share so much with all of you.

So I bit the bullet and decided to do a few PERSONAL gift sets! I did 4 sets of monogram cards. There are 6 cards in each set, with stamped matching envelopes. I feel for some “special” people, something a TAD more involved was in order.

So this is what I did!

monogram sets

I used my rectangle  Nestablilites for the scalloped layer, as well as the embossed straight edge of the stamped layer.

I basically did a One Sheet Wonder, then did the cutting of dies.

I used Jolies Fleurs for the stamped layer, Celebration Frames for the scallop punched circle, and Olivia alpha for the monogram- all found —–>HERE or HERE.

Tied at the top with some simple ribbon. I was really going for a personal gift, that can be used for any occasion. I felt these notecards were clean, and simple, yet elegant. I made the 4 sets while watching Regis and Kelly, and an episode of Martha Stewart-then part of The View. In short these 24 card sets took me some time, but were well worth the effort. I hate mass producing so was way DONE!!!

The layering, scallops, and embossing are a real WOW in person. Plus they are very dimensional, which doesn’t show in the box!

sample  Here is another view-sorry bad lighting!

A little while ago I posted an ornament for the Paper Craft’s Festival of Tree’s—->here. I said I would be making another one in its place, due to the fact it looked like a turnip :C I definitely felt this one was worthy. They seemed excited to accept it as well. I cannot wait to see what the tree ends up looking like.


I bought this clear ornament at Michaels, last year on clearance for 0.10 cents! YEAH!!!

The color scheme had to be red and turquoise.

I stamped my snowman from Christmas in the City , in StazOn on clear polyshrink. Colored with myCopic markers, then shrunk him down 😀

I used the Holiday Cheer set, stamped in red 3 seperate times, then punched out with my Giga Scallop circle, center cut out with my Coluzzle. I adhered the 3 circles together, and put my snowman charm hanging from the center.

I placed them in the snowball, with some Martha Stewart winter white glitter in the bottom! Looks just like shimmery snow.

Next up I haver a Christmas card using the same Holiday Cheer set.

retro trees

The circle sentiment is stamped on the vellum layer in white. That paper underneath is Martha Stewart wrapping paper!!! I LOVED it, and yes it was on clearance.

This card was super duper fast too!! I love solid images. You can really just FLY through a project with them. This set is a really cool one IMO 😀

I’m waiting for some NEW goodies to arrive-crossing my finger’s today is the day.

There are some FAB new releases coming from MFT too!!! But those have to wait till December to share :C

One particular set is ROCKIN!! I have some awesome stuff I did for Christmas gifts but can’t share till Feb!!!

Now that my friends is TORTURE!

Till tomorrow-where I may share a Bella card. Not sure yet.
