New Classes Announced

Do you love to create but sometimes get overwhelmed by all the offerings in our catalog? Maybe you are just not sure where to start. Maybe you want a fun and affordable girls night out in Elkridge, MD. Maybe you are a busy mom that wants an hour to herself in her PJs and her favorite stamps?

I came up with 4 different classes just for those of you who said yes to the above (and so many more). I have posted my full list of projects that we are going to be doing from now until New Years that will get you into the spirit of all the seasons.

Thoughtful Branches Last call

We just received word that Stampin’ Up! is down to their final inventory of the amazing thoughtful branches set. Good news is you can still get it before it goes away for good.
Here is a card that I made for a friend’s wedding. It was very simple and I loved all the blue in the card. Great for her something blue!


It is hard to see in the picture but I did whisper white cut out in the background under the blue cut out. I used my silicone mat to apply my snail so that the adhesive would not stick all over the place. This card was really simple but just so lovely.

The Floral Boutique paper pack is just so elegant and something that you will want to add to your collection! This is also a paper that will be part of our bundled buy 3 get one FREE items starting October 1!

The Rose Wonder Stamp set has the beautiful Wedding sentiment that I used and the fun flowers that I put on the bottom.



I also made this card a very large on so that I could write a lot into it. My measurements are 5.5 x 6 inches.

All the items used can be found below and if you click on them they will bring you to my online store. Make sure to use the current month’s hostess code to be entered into a chance to win something from me 🙂

As always thank you for stopping by!

Tin of Cards: Part 1


I know it has been a little bit since I have posted here but life took on a form of its own. I had planned on (and had the pictures ready on my camera) to post while I was away on my honeymoon but that just didn’t happen. This week my new husband and I have been picking away at the apartment trying to reorganize everything and enjoy life as newlyweds.

Anyways I wanted to share with you one of my favorite items from the new Holiday catalog: The Beautiful Tin of Tags!!! This is a great little starter kit and all the tags are so beautiful. Who wouldn’t love getting on of these amazing tags on the Christmas presents 🙂

So this is just 3 of the tags ( I will be posting the other ones later). I went away from the colors suggested and used what I wanted to use which of course were my amazing in colors. I love those colors so much!!


This little kit has everything you need from Washi Tape, to the cute wooden bow, to the tassles. The only thing that you have to have is the stamp set (sold separate) and the inks.

Make sure to hop over to my Facebook group and Like it so that you can keep up with all the latest things going on. Right now we have our great weekly specials but they are ending soon.

Also make sure to visit the Clearance section at the top of the blog to get great SU products at a discounted rate. Remember you can also apply the hostess code to these orders too.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday and if you are in the Mid-atlantic like me you are enjoying our cool 70 degree weather. Fall is upon us y’all.
