Spring “Under the Sea” Retreat

I am thrilled to offer our NEXT Spring Retreat at the Crowne Plaza in Dublin! Our theme is Under the Sea…(loving the mermaid!). While at this hotel in March we will be using 3 smaller conference rooms instead of one big one. Two of the rooms are next to each other & the 3rd is just across the hall. I plan to keep you with your group of friends. I know the seating arrangements from the past. You will each have your own 6′ table.

Looking ahead – I do have one large room booked in October.

Class schedule will be sent as we near Retreat

Shut the Barn Door!

I am in LOVE with this Barn Door Bundle! It has been so much fun designing samples for my upcoming class on March 17th!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door bundle was used by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers to make this adorable sliding door card.

I am a scrapbooker at heart and my idea behind this card was to have a photograph show as the door slides to the left. I take a million pictures & am known to carry my camera where ever I go. I am far from being a professional photographer as I just set my camera on auto & point & shoot!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door bundle was used by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers to make this adorable sliding door card.

Card measurements:
  • Card Base Basic Gray: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Front Panel Smoky Slate: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Front Whisper White panel behind the door: 2 3/8″ x 4″
  • Cute photograph of my son: 2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Inside of card Whisper White: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Barn Door Basic Gray (I used a scrap)

This picture is my son, Jonathan & his girlfriend Sarah. They are so happy together! Love them both! I think they are a great addition to my card!

Beautiful Bouquet & Sunshine Wishes Wedding Card

I want to share with you this Beautiful Bouquet & Sunshine Wishes wedding card.  This is one of February’s cards for my Stamp Club. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest done by Jan Clothier.  We can always use a pretty wedding card. Wedding cards are fun to make, since weddings are such a happy occasion!  Do you know someone getting married that you could make this card for?  With a few tweaks it could easily be a Valentines Day card, an anniversary card or just a simple “I love you” note.

I made this card using our whisper white card stock and a piece of our window sheets. The stamp is from the Beautiful Bouquet set inked in Basic Gray. I love the Silver Foil Sheet along with the Basic Gray card stock to make the hearts pop! The hearts are cut from our Sunshine Wishes Thinlit Dies.
I love the finished look of our Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder.

To adhere it all together I used our Tear & Tape and Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Here are the card measurements:

Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
Cut the card at 7″ so the front of the card measures 1 1/2″ from the fold or score line (this will be the top of the card)
Cut one piece of Whisper White at 4″ x 1 1/4″ for the top layer & one piece at
4″ x 1 1/2″, use the Layer Leaves Embossing Folder on both of these pieces.
Cut one piece at 4 1/4″ x 1 3/4″-this will be your bottom base piece of the card that the window sheet will glue onto &
your 4′ x 1 1/2″ Embossed piece will layer on
Cut Window Sheet at 4″ x 4″
I used the Tear & Tape to adhere the Window Sheet
