Hello Friends

One of my sweet customer Lola send me a picture of a card with a fold like this one and ask me if I could figure this one out well I said "you bet", I love challenge well after all, this was not much of a challenge cause I found the original from the picture she send me and it was at Iced Images and found the dimension so THANK YOU to Iced Images for the measurement. Now I choose to do a video well for me it is a lot easier to explain in a video then in writing and I bet you will agree with me on that one, that my video are much easier to understand then "my writing" :) To view the video you can find it on my You Tube Channel or on my blog post of today.   

Here the measurement you will need

*5 at the top make a mark at 2 and 3 top and bottom

Happy Mail from the CEO and the President of Stampin'Up!


 Hello Friends 
  **Warning long post today. 
What a surprise I got in the mail a few weeks ago. Got a card from Sara Douglas CEO of Stampin'Up! and one from Rich Jutkins the President of Stampin'Up! just to say they are thinking of me and praying for Nika. I was shock to get a card from them 2 I know they are busy and for them to take the time to send me a card it made me realize that I work for a company that care about their demo and the people that work for them.  Thank you Sara and Rich, 
Well now it is time to give a update on Nika if you not sure what I am talking about it's about when I was on the incentive trip/cruise with Stamin'Up! in the Mediterranean at the end of May Nika my daughter fracture 2 bones in her arm on the first day at port in Italy so long story short we had to come back in the United States for her to get surgery so we miss most of the cruise. Nika is doing great she got 2 plates with 6 screw in each bone so total of 12 screws and 2 plates. The healing is amazing just saw her last weekend and it look great, stitches are out and both incisions look great, she have to do therapy to get all the full motion but the Doc say it all should be OKAY in about 6 week. She is going again next week to see him so will get more info on the progress but so far so good. 
Many ask me why no cast well the cast would be just to protect her from hitting it on object, the plates and the screw that is what hold her bones in place now plus this way the incision can heal better. She been back at work on light duty but now she is doing more and more with one arm.  ***Many will say she shouldn't work the Doc said it is perfectly okay the more she move that arm the quicker it will heal and get the motion again, she can not lift more then a bottle of water with that hand but she got her right hand that is in good shape. She is a strong little one plus she is determine to heal before she start vet school in the fall. She told me to say "THANK YOU" to all who send her get well cards, those card sure brighten her days. I always say a card is so powerful it is just paper but it make a big impact. 

The top card was from Sara and I will list all supplies at the bottom and the bottom card is from Rich, the card was from a past kit and for the life of me I can NOT remember the name of the kit sorry. Taking about Rich I can NOT thanks that men enough when all this happen we were in Pompeii Italy and I didn't have a phone with me but I wanted to connect with someone with Stampin'Up! to let them know that we were going to the hospital and so on well I sported Rich in the crowd and that men let me have is phone so I can keep in touch with them..... I could write a book about that day but will keep it short but one more Thank YOU to Glenda and Bill Calkins "the stamp camp" OH how they help us that day sometime we think it just rubber stamp well trust me it is more then rubber stamp, I met Glenda and Bill on my first incentive trip and always stay in touch and became very good friend and the husband are perfect travel buddies while Glenda and I do are own 'stuff" stamping and such.......... Yes it is more then Rubber Stamp 

Okay I know I rubble a lot in this post but with all that being said don't you want to be part of a caring family like the one I am part of?  If you love Stampin'Up! product why not getting a discount or if you need some extra $$$ for car payment, kids piano lesson, soccer camp etc.... why not trying to have a side business it start small but you never know how big it can get till you try it trust me on that part I join to get a discount and now this is my main income and full time job *yes I work many hours to build this business but when you love what you do it all good.

Stampin' 101 3 Step Stamping
Baby Bare


Hello Friends 
  Oh! so much in this video about "Baby Bear" and I choose the title Stampin' 101 3 step stamping but you will have many great tips in the video about this set. The video can be view on my You tube channel or today post on my blog.  The 3 step stamping I will show you how you can use 3 different color ink and then just one color ink. The color combo are #1 Crumb cake, #2 Soft Suede, #3 chocolate chip ***the number of the stamp is listed on the clear insert in the stamp set and the one that I use just one color it is all done with chocolate chip. 
The lovely background paper is from the 6 x 6 pack Serene Scenery this paper is a must well it is my favorite and trust me you will see me using this paper lots I order 3 pk for myself :) 
Plus in the video you will learn how to have the head tilted so it look like she is looking at him again many tips in this video. Talking about video do you have a clue how many video I have in my You Tube Channel? WOW I can't believe it......I am over 900 videos yes NINE HUNDRED video that is lots of stamping and sharing. So you can start popping your pop corn and have many hours of fun stamping with me Frenchie :)  Sure hope you get inspired here and there with all these video I sure love to share what I love to do. 
I will list all supplies at the bottom 
The bow on this one is Flirty Flamingo so step one stamp off first then into card stock and step 2 same color and then direct on the stamp image 

This Bow is Rose Red again same technique for ONE color only. 
Here you can see both card opening in a different direction 
on is cut on the shot way at 5½ so it is 8½ x 5½ fold in half for the card base 
the other one is cut on the long way so 4¼ x 11 score at 5½ and fold for card base the one cut at the 4¼ it is important to score so the card stock will fold nicely ***Always great to score your card stock for the card base but the one cut on the long way I say it's a must to have a clean fold. 
The designer paper is cut at 5¼ by 4 
This one I only use the Chocolate Chip so first step ink the stamp #1 with chocolate chip stamp on scrap paper twice then into your card stock, stamp #2 ink again in chocolate chip stamp only once on scrap and into the first image then stamp #3 ink chocolate chip and direct on stamp image VOILA you get this lovely bear I didn't do a card yet with this image but do late and share the card next week or so. ***This one I will not fussy cut so stay tune :) 
Thank YOU so much for stopping by I will be back tomorrow 
Have a great day!

Touches of texture


 Hello Friends 
 OH! the Touches of Texture stamp set this will be another one that I will use lots for a filler like the Gorgeous Grunge, Timeless Texture. What is a filler well it is stamps that is perfect to fill space on a card that sometime we just need one more little accent and this will do it. Like the wash off boarder and the spots in this set are great for a filler so you will see much use of this set on my blog not necessary the flower but the accent stamps in this set, the flowers are great but the filler are what attract me to this set. 
I did a Facebook live well on the spot and did this card, I let the viewers choose the color. If you are on facebook you can CLICK HERE to view the video it is the one listed Touches of Texture. I love live stamping on Facebook a great way to chat with the viewers so a great reason to join facebook to come stamp with me live. 
I will list all supplies at the bottom and here the measurement 
-Basic Black 8½ x 5½ fold in half card base 
-whisper White 5 x 3¾ for INSIDE 
-Sweet Sugarplum ¾ x 5½ INSIDE strip 
-Sweet Sugarplum 5¼ x 4 
-Shimmer White 5 x 3¾ 
*after I stamp the center of the flower I use the aqua painter to spread the color of the flower. 
Well my friends this is it for now I will be back tomorrow and I will be back in the office in Texas again,  I been in Wyoming for the past 6 days spending time with the family always a good time to see them and this time I got to see many of my stamping friends at the sales so it was a great trip. FYI I though I was going north to cool off well I was way WRONG it been hot there and we spend most of our time outside so let just say that I change color most people will think it is because I'm in the south now but Oh MY the north got that sunshine in full bloom and the heater crank up all the way. Have a great day and sty cool!
