Our Veterans

H A P P Y    V E T E R A N S   D A Y 
to all our veterans!  Be sure to thank a Veteran for their service and sacrifice.  

I worked 32 years for the DOD and VA Healthcare system so the veterans hold a very special place in my heart.  

Today's share is a card I started on in September to show my appreciation to our veterans.  It took a while and lots of configuration, but I got them done!

Here's the Flag that pops up when opening the card.


And here's the front of the card completely done!


Instructions coming soon -- things have been kind of hectic with this being Veterans' Week here in Branson.  

I hope you enjoy today's share!

Happy Crafting,

Happy Halloween!

I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween! 

Starting tomorrow, Stampin' Up! is releasing our new Stampin' Blends!  These are new alcohol markers that make coloring so much easier.  And with the color remover, you can remove your darker color for a lighter shade.  These are wonderful for floral, birds, leaves, etc!  


Stop in today and check the new blends out!



 Happy Crafting,

Gift Boxes

Here are some cute little gift boxes I made for Christmas.  Imagine receiving one of these with a ring, earrings, or a necklace in it?  You'd never guess what was inside.  

This first one I used the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers.  I used a retired stamp set, White Christmas, for the words and snow flakes.  


This box is made using the same papers!


And this box is made using retired designer series papers and stamp sets.

Pizza Box Scrapbook

Here is another project Paula, Pam and I worked on. This is new and I felt like I needed to have more than one on the shelf! I used the new Stampin' Up! Pizza boxes to make these. I can't wait to make some more 3X3 cards to put inside some of these! For today, though, here is a scrapbook!




You get 8 boxes for $6 (144645)!! And Stampin' Up! has the 3X3 white envelopes (145829) (40 envelopes for $9.00) in the Holiday Catalog as well! You may want to stock on up both of these items if you fall in love with the pizza box! My inspiration came from Pinterest and fellow demonstrators.



We used the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers (144621) on this project.



And if you received your October Paper Pumpkin, you will see this kit coordinates with this DSP.

Happy Crafting!

Shout Out to Paula and Pam

First, a big shout of THANKS to Paula and Pam for stopping in and helping me play this weekend! I had a fabulous time. Here's one of the items we put together. I have two kits available using a variety of colors. This one I made specifically for fall.





I repurposed the thicker cardboard from Stampin' Up! Specialty Designer Series papers and cut them down to size. I used retired Designer Series Papers for this project.

Creating the explosion portion of this scrapbook is easy once you do a couple of them. This is now ready for pictures and journaling!


Contact me with questions or comments! I love hearing from you.

Happy Crafting!

Stampin' Blends


Do you remember the Stampin' Up! Blendabilities?  These were alcohol markers that we used in some of our projects four years ago!  Well, the manufacturer had issues with the tips drying out and Stampin' Up! pulled the product lined.  



Are you ready for November?  We now have Stampin' Up! new product -- Stampin' Blends. These will be available to you on November 1st!  When we received notice these were coming and we were given the opportunity to purchase, I was hesitant to share.  Why?  Because the customer availability date was UNKNOWN!  Now we can share and play so you can purchase these in November!

Stop in my store, Desiree's Craftroom, located inside the Branson Mill Craft Village to see a demonstration on our new Stampin' Blends. Already have alcohol markers? Come check ours out and compare!

I have the old Blendabilities and the new Stampin' Blends for comparison.  

I hope you will stop in and see me!

Happy Crafting,

Desiree'
