Christmas Cards, Gatefold Cards

Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.

My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡

The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.

I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄

well, I'm off to make stamps 😜

Christmas Cards, Faith

Good Day!  The snow has continued all night and throughout the morning. It’s beautiful but it is complicating the packing of the trailer. Kevin has spent the morning plowing. 

I have stuffed over 600 make n takes for our next three shows:  Lawrenceville, GA, New Port Richey, FL and Columbia, SC. I hope 🀞I have enough 😳

Christmas Cards, Snowman

We are feeling the love with snow and cold!  I don’t believe it got above zero yesterday. πŸ˜› Glad we live in an age where we have warm houses, cars, & coats. 

My brother and parents are coming this week so a busy week ahead. Luckily the booth “re-do” is almost done.

If anyone wonders…yes, I still LOVE my brother scanncut!  I used it on today’s cards plus to cut out some quilt blocks!

Christmas Cards, Snowman

Good Evening!  We had a busy day.  We’ve started the re-do of the booth. It’s such a big job that I kept putting it offπŸ™„  

Because we have noticed a big decrease in wood stamp purchases due to the MISTI, we are decreasing the amount of wood stamps that we carry. Don’t fear you wood stamp lovers- we will continue to carry all new stamps and most popular.  

Another little gift tag today… used the brother scanncut for the snowman.  I had to clean the scanner first. For you scanncut owners…if you flip your machine over (make sure it is unplugged!) and take out the white bar and clean inside there. It really helped my machine.

Good Morning!  It is freezing here in WI. It was 3 degrees when we went to bible study last night. That’s bone chilling cold 😳

We finished most of the stamps yesterday  and just need to bar code them all today. I usually clean the house on Wednesday but we were intent on getting the stamps done so cleaning house today. 

Another cute little tag today that needed the To/From moved down πŸ™„
