Birthday Card

Hi All,

A dear friend had a birthday and with all my travels, I finally had the time to make a special card for her. It was a surprise birthday, considering her birthday was back in February:), she wasn't expecting it, at this point.

I loved the vibrant colors and design mix. The stripes and paisley pattern worked well together since the greens complemented each other. I added the grosgrain ribbon to add texture and detail. You can double click the picture to see an upclose view.

We are getting ready for the stamp show in Allentown, PA. Be sure to visit and see the latest and greatest stuff we have.

Birdie Bag

Hello All,

Here is another Easter idea that can be used beyond the holiday. It can be used as a little springtime goodie. I used the Purse Template to create this little bag. I just trimmed off the flap to make this an open bag. I punched holes on the sides and threaded grosgrain ribbon and knotted the ends. I stuffed it with the Shredds and added the Boutiques buttons using the ATG gun to make glue dots. All supplies available from

I filled it with decorated Hershey Nugget chocolates. If you click on the photos, you will see the enlarged details of the project.

Thanks for visiting!

Bunny Card

Hi All,

I hope you had a great spring day today.

Easter is nearing, so I thought I would add to the Easter card collection. I made my own background with the stitch stamp, Mini Swiss Dot and Mini Daisy from the Rosette Petit Fours stamp set. I stamped with the Versafine and colored with Tombow Markers.

I liked the little bows and the buttons to finish off the card. A simple and sweet card.

If you click on the card, you can see the detail on the bunnies. I used the 3D Lacquer and Fun Fluff to add fuzzy texture to the bunnies. I also used the lacquer and glitter for the dimension on the ears, basket and eggs.

Easter Card

Hi All,

Spring has finally come to the Northwest. Though today is rainy, yesterday was a perfect spring day. I have the memory of it to carry me through today. With Easter next weekend. I thought I would share an Easter card idea. This is the same card from different angles. It love the dimension, cheery colors and layers. If you look closely, you'll see a glitter swirl background.

I stamped it in Onyx Black Versafine and colored with Tombow markers. I used the Quickie glue pen and Sparkletts glitter for the shimmery touch. The glue pad I used was the Essential Glue pad. You can find those items here:

The Eggs were a feature on DeNami. Here is the post:

show help

Hi All,

We are getting ready for some shows coming up after Easter. I love spring! It's nice to see the sun come out again. It's a reminder of good things to come. Easter reminds me of God's love for us. It's nice to be home during this time.

We are looking to add help for our Albany, NY show and Akron, OH shows. We also still need someone to help us set up in Allentown, PA and for take down. Let us know that you are interested.

I am working on new designs. It will cover the fall/winter seasons. Now is the time for you to give your input. We took past requests and it was born into rubber.

We did a show in Portland. I loved being able to see all you ladies that I have known for so long. We had Patsy and Sherrill help us during the show and in addition to that, Julie helped set up.
Can't believe we have known Patsy for 20 years. Yikes!

I have a fun graduation project I made in Portland. I will have to post it real soon...
