good morning! We got home at 2:30 am. long night but Kevin is a night owl so night driving is better!

I ran out of my girlie birthday cards on Saturday during the show in Collinsville so I quickly designed another and today’s card is the sample. We liked doing this make n take format and might add it to our other format. It was received well! Fun Card.

Good Morning β˜€οΈ

We are frantically getting orders out and trying to make stamps for Collinsville. Our booth placement stinks in Collinsville so likely don’t need to worry about making stamps anyway πŸ€ͺ

So we are changing our make n take format for Collinsville. We will not have our usual set up but we will be doing two different make n takes. Four spots. More like Paper Cut format. We are doing two different birthday cards. This masculine card and a girlie card that I will post tomorrow!

Good Morning! We have a lot going on here with the new toy hauler and modifying the booth to fit.

Spent yesterday afternoon in the studio and only got one card done πŸ˜¬πŸ™„πŸ€¨ it was not a productive afternoon. I was trying to do a new fold and have lots of crazy scored things that didn’t work.

Today’s card is from a few days ago. It is a favorite of mine. I’m planning to teach a class next year called Funky Folds and this card is going to be one of them.

good evening! Another day is done! the days seem to go by faster and faster.

Just a cute story for today… my sixteen year old nephew comes and plays video games with Kevin and he came upstairs tonight and was watching me stamps cards. He wanted to know if I was working or having fun??! I said both and he thought it would be easier to just go buy a card. So I told him my making cards was like his playing video games! He wasn’t convinced!!

I’m having so much fun making funky fold cards. I started this one early this afternoon and it took me a quite a while to get the measurements right but I was having fun!!

the crazy z folds continue!! We’ve have been very busy with our broken trailer. We have come to a resolution with the manufacture and are satisfied. We need to empty the entire trailer which is a huge job! I need less stuff!!

I’ve been using our dies that match stamps. I don’t know why I resisted so long! They really are too much fun and easy to use.

Good Morning! We are buried under a pile of snow so we decided to just work today. Love our commute down to work. It’s going to require tall boots πŸ€ͺ

I am still working on getting the cutting dies on the web- most are on just a few more to go.

Our dies don’t just cut the outside out but it does flowers and leaves and pots too! Great for layers.
