Today, I have a video tutorial with a tip for "customizing" the Word Window Punch from Stampin' Up! Aren't these little Ears to You Easter place cards cute? I personalized these with the Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamps.
Watch the video below and I'll show you how to adjust the size of the punch to fit your name or sentiment.
The new Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamps (132956) from Stampin' Up! arrived on my doorstep yesterday so I had to "play" last night.
The following list is a review and my first impressions of working with this set:
Can masculine cards contain Stampin' Up! embellishments typically thought as strictly feminine? Well, of course!
With the right combination of color and neutrals, you can definitely pull this off. And, I'll tell you another secret...as long as the sentiment is one that will give a little tug to their heart strings, it will be perfect. Sure, some guys won't admit it, but most of them appreciate a little touch of pretty-ness...especially from their honey.
I'd love to show you more ways to use products and stamp sets that you have on hand to design something unique and well,manly. ;)

Recently I received this question regarding Stampin' Up! adhesives. The following is the actual question and my response:
Do you offer a specific glue to be used on scrapbooking pages?
I hope this Stampin' Up! Q & A information is helpful to you for choosing your adhesives for paper crafting and scrapbooking!
The Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers set (wood, clear) make beautiful sympathy cards. This is my go-to set for sending comforting thoughts in difficult times. Included are two beautiful images but I find the heartfelt sentiments are exactly right when it's hard to find words.
Using neutral colors with a Crumb Cake emphasis, I've used the 5/8" Flower Trim and the Tea Lace Paper Doilies as accents on this card. Look closely to notice the subtle difference in color. Here's a video tutorial to show you how to get that look.
Supplies for this Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers card are available in my Online Store, 24/7.

I've been busy in the kitchen most of the day and tomorrow I need to tidy up around the house and wrap a few more gifts. But, I'll be in my stamp room for a bit tomorrow finishing some pretty packaging and maybe even record a video. ;)
I was up late last night working on the note card gift sets seen here using the Stippled Blossoms set (wood, clear). These come together in a jiffy and make a nice hand-made gift. I made 4 notecards for each set.
Here are a few tips to help you put a few sets together:
These sets will be for some family members but are also good to have on hand for party hostesses or holiday visitors!
After being up late last night and the busy-ness of the day, I am ready for a goos night's rest. Our girls and their husbands will be in town for Christmas Eve and Day...so looking forward to having them!
Before I close, I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you.
My husband, Jackie and I would like to extend to you warm holiday greetings and blessings in this holy season.
May the Spirit of Christmas fill your hearts with love and peace!

In this post, we "discussed" time and how precious those moments are when we can sneak in some time to craft.
On that same note, I have a blog buddy in NYC who is a talented crafter and knock- your-socks-off art journaler, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. She inspires me and gets me to dig deep into what is possible in self expression by means of our craft.
Julie had a great post on managing time the other day and I had to share her great tips that are real and do-able!
I thought these were great tips for carving in some crafting time. Try one or all and let me know how it goes!

I am visiting family this weekend, but I wanted to share this birthday card that I made for a friend using the Stampin Up! Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Folder and Core'dinations Card Stock from the Holiday Catalog.
A gold embossed image from the Artistic Etchings set (wood, clear) is backed with a Scallop Circle stamped with the Etruscan Elegance Stampin' Around Wheel that is no longer a wheel...I can explain that HERE.
