You make the world a better place

I thought the World Map background stamp was perfect to use with this image from Starburst Sayings.  I used the Fringe Scissors to add a little pizzazz to the Coastal Cabana strip of card stock.  How fun is that?

You can Pin from my blog!

I am so excited to let you know that we can now Pin directly from my blog.  You know, I’ve mentioned a time or two that I’m not much of a techy girl.  So, I spent part of Saturday morning at Amanda’s house. She is one of my team members who has just recently started a blog, you should check it out at, she’s very talented.    Her husband Chris is a self taught techy guy and he was able to hook up the Pinterest Pin it button to my blog in just a couple minutes!  So now, any time you see a photo you like you can pin it to one of your Pinterest boards. Yay!!  He even set it up so that you can pin any past photos I’ve posted, all the way back to the beginning.  How cool is that!

So, here’s a card that I’m dedicating to Chris & Amanda Waldhart for helping me out.  Try the Pin it thing if you like this card.  Just move your mouse over the photo, see the Pin it pop up in the corner, just click it and you can pin it to your board on Pinterest.

Valentine Sampler

Over the past few years I’ve made a number of these cute “sampler” frames.  All you do is chose a theme (Valentine’s Day) and a color palate (I used Real Red, Whisper White and Coastal Cabana).  Each square is 2? x 2? and is layered and stamped and embellished.  It’s so much fun as each little square is it’s own little piece of art.  We made this sampler at my Advanced Paper Crafters Class last week.  There are way to many stamp sets to list and punches and … to list, but I will share with you some of the other samplers I’ve made to give you a little inspiration.
