Pumpkin Box

This past week we had “Boo Buddies” at work, where we each pick a name and leave that person little treats all week.  I love doing this! It is so much fun! The only bummer for me is that I can;t do anything hand-made, or the person will know that it is me. But Monday … Continue reading »

Sponging Upsy Daisy

Twice a year our Fourth Grade students go to visit the residents at the Jewish Home for the Aged. On their fall visit, the Fourth Graders stamp cards with the seniors, and the seniors keep those cards to use. It’s a great project and I always enjoy working with our Service Learning Coordinator.

My hostess Stacey is expecting her second baby in a few months. She’s also a really big scrapbooker, so I wanted to give her a hostess gift … Continue reading »

Quilted Thanks

It’s funny, because when I first saw it, I really did not like the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, but the more I use it, the more I love it! When I saw this gorgeous quilted card by Rita, I knew I wanted to make my own as well. Stamps: Perfect Punches Ink: Soft Suede, … Continue reading »

New Hanukkah Stamp!

Another great sketch from Margaret Moody over at Pals Paper Arts this week. Although I do love square cards, I made this one into a rectangle because I finally got a chance to play with Stampin’ Up’s new Hanukkah Stamp! Isn’t it super cute? I have to say that I didn’t particular like the way … Continue reading »
