Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas! We survived the Packer game including the cold, the slaughtering the Vikings did to the Packers and the immense amount of Viking fans at Lambeau Field. Seriously we had fun! We didn’t freeze and now we have a houseful of company/family!

Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season with family/friends!

Christmas Cards

We are getting closer and closer to Christmas! David and Patti from Rubbernecker, Ron and Sarah from The Paper Cut, Kevin and I are all going to the Green Bay Packer game on Saturday. I’m pretty sure we are going to FREEZE!

Several of our new dies have came in but I’ve been having packaging problems. Mostly my printer died. 😣😩 I finally got a new one but having some technical difficulties 🙄. I was able to get this one done…

I thought the F235 stamp would be just simpler to cut out with a scissors but I was proved wrong! This die is awesome!! Here is the link for ordering it

Christmas Cards

Hello! I’ve been neglecting the blog because we have had a bit of company that we have been enjoying!

The boys (Kevin and Austin my nephew) have left for Brick, NJ to pick up Another Stamp Company. There were supposed to go last week but we had a quite a bit of snow so we put it off a few days.

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 😜
