By Request

Ok, so I am sick of making baby cards. And I'd like to know who's reading this blog. So here's the deal... tell me what kind of cards you find the toughest to create and I'll try to come up with an idea to get you inspired. Or, issue me a challenge (like "make an Easter Card using purple and green") and I'll see what I can do.

And, here's the icing on the cake: First person to reply to this thread with a challenge or card suggestion will receive their copy of the new Inspiration Catalogue for FREE!

The new GWP'S!!!

I am so in love with the new selection of GWP's. For every $30 you spend, you get a free stamp (or, Gift With Purchase). I want them all!

It's here!!!

The new Inspiration Book and Catalogue has arrived. The name changed from "Idea Book" to "Inspiration Book" because that is what TAC is about. The new Signature Series stamps collections contain words and phrases that will enable you to bless and encourage the lives of others. The new sets can be seen on my website,, by clicking on the 'product' tab, and then clicking on the stamp link on the left-hand side of the screen. The new papers are also incredible, and I can't wait to get my hands on them!!! They are perfect for stamping, scrapping, and papercrafting of all kinds!

Welcome, Clara!

Yup! Another baby girl. This card is for Clara Noel Kallgren. Zebra from the "Wild..." set (but of course!) I have absolutely no idea where the patterned paper came from!

More Baby Cards

As several of you know, I sell my cards at several boutiques around the country. Baby themes sell the best, so that's what I'm concentrating on now. This is another stamp from the "Wild..." set. The patterned paper is from a DCWV stack that I've had for ages. My goal is to start using up some of my paper, because as soon as I get the new TAC Catalogue I KNOW I'm going to want more. I've heard fabulous things about it... I also broke out a pair of Abby's decorative scissors for this one (remember those, folks???)

Merry Christmas!

This year I knew I needed a quick and easy design for my Christmas Cards. When this 'Joy' stamp came out in the Fall Supplement, I knew I had to have it. To make the card, I just embossed in Silver, then added green, red, and crystal Stickles. It's very easy because there are no layers... I didn't have to cut any paper or glue or anything... just had to wait for the Stickles to dry! I've gotten so many complements on it that I may never do a complicated Christmas Card again! :-)

I'm BACKK!!!!

Yeah, so it's been a crazy year. I am hoping to start posting again to this blog to give you some great cardmaking ideas. This card is in honor of Meaghan Elizabeth Crafts... welcome to the world, baby girl! Can't wait to meet you!!!

The stamp is from the "Wild for You" set and the paper is from the Lilly Anna Collection, which I adore. The blue cardstock from DCWV coordinates perfectly. (Most of the TAC paper sets match EXTREMELY well with the Stacks from DCWV. It makes cardmaking pretty brainless. I always get my stacks on sale at Joanne's. Check the Fall Christmas Stacks, as they will probably be on clearance.)
