Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

A quick break from holiday cards for this sweet polka dot one. White paper is dull gloss and the flowers and butterfly were colored with copic markers. Happy Friday!

great day1

Wishing everyone a great day today!

We are here in Sharonville,  OH getting ready for Stampaway.  We had an awesome group in my class yesterday.  We are going to go and finish setting up this morning and then the show starts this evening.  It was really nice to get mostly set up yesterday before my class and now just some finishing touches to do in the booth.

Have a great weekend!

Tuesday Morning!

Hope your day is a good one.  My sister came over to help me make stamps on her day off.  Thank Goodness!  We have a lot to do and we leave tomorrow at noon.

For all you ladies with the Brother ScannCut…I have figured out how to virtually cut out ALL (that’s right 100%) of your stamps with this awesome machine.  I used to say you had to have a continues line and not a solid stamp but I have figured a way to fool the machine.  Someone mentioned to me about the Scan mat that is available from Brother for scanning fabric and how it worked so I wondered if we could apply the same concept to our stamps.  This is what I do:  (when I have time I will try to do pictures! just a little busy right now :)) I stamp the image on paper.  Lay it on the standard mat.  Take a piece of acetate that is a little bigger and place over the stamped paper.  Draw a line where I want the machine to cut on the acetate with a sharpie.  Scan the image.  When it is done scanning, I take off the acetate and then have it just cut the paper!  Works Awesome!

Have a great day!

Summer has Arrived!


I believe summer has finally arrived here is WI!  We finally have gotten some heat and today the forecast is for more heat.  The kids have been keeping the pool busy!  It was quite hot yesterday in the vulcanizing room so I expect it will be warm today too 🙂 not complaining …we’ve been waiting for some warm weather!

Our snails have been very popular and how cute is this for sending cards in the mail.  I still love to get cards snail mail way.  It’s off to work!  Have a good Tuesday!
