Looking for something to do?

I hope everyone is staying home and remaining healthy. Are you getting bored yet? antsy? frustrated? All of the above? Know that you are not alone. Below are some ideas of what you can do at home to keep busy. While trying not to snack, because eating is my go to when I am bored, I created this gift box for my 11 neighbours and filled them with 6 home baked cookies (yes I had to taste test lol) and they were delivered to each door as a surprise. I wanted to just bring a smile to their faces and to let them know I am thinking about them.

I’ve also put together a few designs featuring the new card suite that will become available April 4th. Normally we wouldn’t see the new products until the new catalog comes out in June so this was a nice surprise. I was able to preorder a month early, which is just one of the perks of being a demonstrator. This suite is gorgeous and includes two sets of stamps/dies, embossing folder, gems and of course matching ribbon.  All of these can be purchased separately as well but the suite includes it all.  To view the online store, click here.

I have also been completing my Paper Pumpkin kits, completing the ones I started and hadn’t finished, and coming up with different ways of using the “extras” that are always included.  I hope those of you who have subscribed are enjoying your kits as well.  It’s a great way to keep busy with something fun to do by yourself or with a family member especially as we self isolate. Since the kits include everything you need to make up the kit, you don’t need to go out to buy additional supplies. I love that.

April’s Kit is about fun and showing appreciation to our families. The card kits make it easy to share your hearts with those you love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card. Now more than ever, we need to do that and what a nice surprise it would be. Should you wish to subscribe please click here

Do you like receiving "Happy Mail?"

With just about everything closed or reduced in hours and so many of us staying home and practicing social distancing, it can be both boring or a pleasure. What better way to lift your spirits than to receive happy mail? Receiving a card from someone, whether it’s a celebration or just to say “Hello, I am thinking of you” can make someone’s day with a smile.

I propose we spend a little time doing just that, make up a card and send to someone who is also housebound. For anyone living in Canada, if you are interested in receiving “Happy Mail” from me, let me know and I will send a card to the first 50 people who subscribe.

Staying Home to Craft

Hi Everyone,

Well with my card classes cancelled for the time being, and lot’s of time spent at home, what’s a girl to do? Crafting of course.

Ok, well I would be crafting anyways but now I have more time, so decided to try something new. I made up this gift card box (or book) which holds five cards and envelopes to match up with the paper. How cute is that?

I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and it would make a great gift for someone who cannot get out and about. Add some stamps and they are all set. I left the inside of the cards blank so they can be tailored to suit any occasion.

With Sale-a-bration ending March 31st, don’t forget to take advantage and earn the free items with every $60.00 purchase while supplies last. Just click on the link below to shop and earn your freebies.

Poppies for all occasions

I love the Poppy stamps and the designer Series paper is beautiful. I made up this card using Whisper White card stock as a base with Poppy Parade matting and the DSP on top. The DSP stands alone and makes for a beautiful card front. After stamping the sentiment and a few roses I punched out the label and adhered it to the front of the card. This is so simple to make and yet is just pops.
