Monthly Surprises Right To Your Door

August 14, 2015 at 8:00 amCategory:CARDS | Stampin' Up!


LOVIN’ these cards from the June Paper Pumpkin Kit. Each month, I wait very, very impatiently for the new kit. June’s cards were so much fun and very fresh looking. The stamp set is one that I see myself using over & over. Wouldn’t that flower stamp make an awesome background paper for scrapbooking? Watercolor the flowers in gorgeous colors?




I have GREAT news! For a limited time, you can get your first two months of Paper Pumpkin for 1/2 off! Click Here to Sign Up: Paper Pumpkin Subscription


Each month I do a FREE UStream Show featuring the monthly kit.

I am so excited to be teaching the WE LOVE NATURE Card Class at Christmas Pines Campground in Auburn, PA. I created 5 cards that featured fun “outdoorsy” theme. I once again “married” Stampin’ Up! products with other fun goodies from my stash.

I hope you are enjoying checking out my creations and the products that are listed at the bottom of each blog post.  IMG_6983 (1)

All Occasion Cards

August 12, 2015 at 8:00 amCategory:CARDS | CLASSES | Stampin' Up!


I LOVE “marrying” Stampin’ Up! (both current & retired) with products from other top notch companies when I create my cards & scrapbook pages. I was scrapbooking since 1998-WAY before I became a demonstrator-so my stash of goodies is packed with all kinds of items.

I created these 5 cards for my ALL OCCASION CARD CLASS that I held recently at the Sony Building in New York City. We had a wonderful time being creative on a Friday night in the city. Interested in joining us? Check out my meetup group, Gotham City Paper & Paint.

Butterfly Cards-Videos!

June 13, 2015 at 8:00 amCategory:CARDS | Stampin' Up!

I LOVE all things butterflies but especially anything that has to do with crafting-paper, embellishments, stamps…you name it. On my most recent UStream Show, I grabbed the brand new Stampin’ Up! Catalog and picked out the cards that feature butterflies. I used those as my inspiration for 3 cards with my own little twists. As a demonstrator, I don’t have ALL of the stuff in the catalog. Sometimes, something isn’t my style or taste. Other times, it may be that I already have something similar in my stash of supplies. I love looking at Pinterest and youtube for inspiration for projects. I think we all have those moments where we want to sit and create but we don’t know where to even start! The catalog is a perfect inspirational solution to get you going.

HOPPY Easter Cards

April 21, 2015 at 8:35 amCategory:CARDS


I saw this cute little bunny all over Pinterest and knew that I just had to make them for my nieces & nephews for their Easter cards. I am so blessed to have three little nieces and three nephews. I made boy bunnies with blue bowties. The little ladies got girly bunnies with pink hair bows, of course! The kids loved them which made my heart sing!


Birthday Card for Someone Special

February 23, 2014 at 8:00 amCategory:CARDS


I often get asked to make projects for special people in my life. This card is no exception! It was created for someone very special that I work with. I used a card on Pinterest as my inspiration. The artsy vibe of that card really spoke to me. I changed up the color scheme and gave it a slightly different feel. Are you loving the orange splatters? That is Colorations Spray by Art Anthology.

Need a card or artsy creation for someone special? Let me know-I would be happy to make something just for you.


Garden Of Flowers Card

Cards-I don’t make them very often since I stopped teaching classes in NYC. I have so many and still love sending them out. Sometimes, I get asked to make a special card for someone. This card is for a colleague who is retiring. She is someone that is special to me for a ton of reasons. We have a beautiful garden in front of our school and this fabulous lady tends to it with love and kindness. The card packed with gorgeous Prima flowers seemed perfect for her. I hope she loves it. She will be missed but she touched my heart–you can’t take that away. That lasts forever.
