I'm getting things ready for my upcoming open house (see invite letter below) to introduce my SENDITAGAIN cards and celebrating my new career adventure with Stampin' Up.
I made this card as one of the cards that we will be demonstrating. I think it's a beautiful and elgant card to introduce, and yet easy enough for anyone to put together.
I used both the Stampin' Up Heart punch and my Accent Essential cart, button #36 at 2".
I really LOVE the Stampin' Up Glitter Paper. If you have ever used glitter paper before you know the kind of mess it makes, not only is it a little harder to cut but you end up with glitter ALL over the place. It ends up on your work space, hands and then your face- WHAT A MESS. Not with Stampin' Up Glitter Paper, it cuts like butter and never leaves glitter all over-Really!
You can add your own personal greeting but I used the Cleary for You stamps from SU.
I embossed using the Stampin' Up Elegant Lines folder. I truly love embossing as it really adds that extra special touch to your cards.
PLEASE leave me a comment to let me know what you think of this card.

I received a special gift from a fellow Cricut user from the message board. I have say they are all a super group of talented crafters who would do anything to help a fellow crafter.
I was looking for a specific cut off a cart that I did not have (nor could $$ right now) so I put out a plea to let ask if someone would send it to me, and within minutes I received a message letting me know she would.
Well, I wanted to show her my appreciation with these two unique and special SENDITAGAIN cards.
Psst..... you can see her button on the left with all the beautiful flowers. Thanks again Lorraine!

Winter Woodland Birthday invitations

I was asked to design and make invitations and party favors for a sweet 14 year old who is having a skating themed party.
I have to say I thought they came out quite lovely and I know she will love them, as will all her girlfriends.

They were made using the Winter Woodland cart, skate was cut at 4 1/2 " using silver card stock and paisely print for over lay. I used the Stampin' Up Snowflake embossing folder.
The purses were cut from the Forever Young cart, I used a 12x12 sheet of Stampin' Up Marina Mist card stock and used the FIT TO PAGE button.

Accent Essentials

I put this card together real quick last night using the Accent Essential cart.
Flowers were cut at 2 " with button #24, I made 4 and doubled up with pop-ups. The scallop was cut at 1 3/4" with button #46 and the circle is 1 1/4" with button #1.
I'm loving the neon pinks right now paired up with either black or green, so RETRO.

Hello Kitty
button #14 at 3 3/4". I increased the layers to 4", it seemed to looked a little nicer that way


My dear sweet husband turned 46 on the 26th of December. We spent the day on the road driving to Lorton Va, to take the train to Orlando. Sorry honey, I promise you'll have a better birthday next time!
Love you!
