Branson Visitors' Class

Sandra had come to the Branson Mill last year and visited with me a little during her visit.  This year, Sandra brought Pat with her and together, they took a four-item gift class to learn how to make some items for their group back in Texas for Christmas ideas.

We had a lot of fun!  Remember, when you take a four-item or scrapbook class with me, you also get the tutorials emailed to you after class.  

Be sure to contact me during your next visit so you can take a class!

Easter Message Bible Book Marks

On antibiotics for my infection. Hope to be crafting more today.

I was able to make 9 bookmarks and 6 Hershey Bar Wraps yesterday using the Easter Message Stamp Set. I thought my sample was too plain so look for updated pictures later today.

I did paper piece the draping and they look much better.

I can fussy cut while I'm sitting on the couch, so I'm keeping these fairly simple due to not feeling well!

Happy Crafting,

Paper Piecing

I have been so busy with getting my store updated that I have slipped postings. I'm also taking some online course work so it's been really crazy.  Today's share is called paper piecing.

I stamped the image on cardstock and then fussy cut it out and added it to the top of the original stamped image.

These are some different bookmarks and candy bar wraps I'll be making this week.

Happy Crafting,

Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors

Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors

I don’t know about you, but I get real sentimental about my Stampin' Up! In-Colors.  I am sad to see Mint Macaron going away.  Which of these five colors is your favorite?  

These colors officially retire the end of May, but if you have been around awhile you know they rarely make it that long. Most of our In Color stock sells out well before the end of the catalog.

So NOW is the time to order your favorites……and trust me, there is no shame in stocking up and don't forget to order those ink refills!  They are becoming harder and harder to find once the stock has run out!

· Order in my online store here and click on Shop Now!

· Use Host Code RQNYMETH

· Spend $50 and receive a SaleABration item of your choice

Do you know which SaleABration item is the most popular?
First one to guess correctly will win a surprise goodie bag from me!

Happy Crafting,

Stampin' Up! Easter Message Bookmark

I wanted to do something different for a bookmark, so I stamped the cross from Easter Message and then mounted the words from the same set on dimensionals above the cross. If you would like to special order these, I can make them for your Sunday School classes.  I just need a little time to craft, so please place your order early!

I used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners. I'll be putting these out in the next couple of days.

Of course, I also made my Corner Bookmarks as well. I used some of my favorite verses and the FREE Sale-A-Bration DSP on these.

Happy Crafting,

Easter Items On Display

Because I'm going to be gone next week, I've started crafting and putting out Easter Items for sale.  

Here is the Hershey Bar Wrap, using the words from the new Stampin' Up! stamp set, Easter Message. 

I was also able to make up three Hershey Kiss Easter Baskets and these Bunny Fry Boxes.

I hope you enjoy these items and if you'd like to make any of these, be sure to contact me!  

Happy Crafting,
