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 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 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.
These are the awesome Stampin’ Up! Products on my cards:
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.

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!
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.
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.
