Tidbit Tuesday

By Wendy | March 27, 2012 | 1 Comment

Hello Everyone!Well here we are at another Tuesday….  AND I am going to start a NEW Tuesday Tradition called TIDBIT TUESDAY!  … Originally I thought I would call it Two Minute Technique Tuesday but Good Grief Charlie Brown, that’s a lot of words.  Plus I thought what if I don’t have a Technique but just a TIDBIT!  SO, that’s how we came to Tidbit Tuesday.  It could be a technique, it could be a card ideea, but it will be something SHORT SWEET and TO the point every Tuesday, THUS the word Tidbit! HA! Ok enough about all that…. Here’s the Tidbit!  Did you know what you can make flowers with circles!?  AND Stampin Up sales circle punches of all shapes and sizes so it makes it super easy to make these flowers!  Here are some photos of the cards that I made.  And a quick video on how I made […]

Language of Friendship Card

By Wendy | March 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Tonight I spent some time thinking about a different card shape! I get tired of always making the same style cards. So I tried something new. I am sure this has been done before. Just because I haven’t spotted it anywhere or don’t remember seeing it sure doesn’t make it a Wendy Original! BUT I thought I was pretty creative when I came up with this! I have a lot of envelopes laying around that are this size but no cards to go in them! So I had to make some!   Enjoy the video …. Here are the materials I used to make this card: Crumb Cake Cardstock 8 1/2″ x 11 Item# 121030 $6.95 Crumb Cake Stampin Pad Item#121030 $5.95 Early Espresso Stampin Pad Item#119670 $5.95 Baja Breeze Stampin Pad Item# 111833 Perfect Plum Stampin Pad Item# 101437 Language of Friendship Stamp Set – Free in SALE A BRATION […]

HELLO! Well I had a WONDERFUL stamp club meeting this last weekend.  We really mixed it up and did some fun things.  One of the projects we did was a 30 minute challenge.  I gave each of my club members a “grab bag” full of paper (all random and scraps), then I put a bunch of tools, stamp sets and inks on the table and they had 30 minutes to create 2 greeting cards.  It was a BLAST watching them work away at their cards on their time limit.SO, NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!  I am posting the sets of cards here….

Who’s It GONNA BE!?

By Wendy | March 11, 2012 | 3 Comments

Hi Everyone, –   *** READ BELOW ON HOW TO GET $50 IN FREE PRODUCT *** I just have to share this with you… When I joined Stampin Up it was just to get the great 20% discount on products. I was a HUGE scrapbooker. And I was SICK TO DEATH of going to other craft stores and having to buy their paper at $.59 a sheet! UGH! So my dear friend and partner in crime said “Why don’t you become a demonstrator, then you can get the 20% off for paper..” BRILLIANT! Would you believe I had never stamped anything. LOL, It’s true. So I became a demo… for the discount…. MY MATH: $6.95 for a pack of 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock, divided by 24 equals .28 cents a sheet… BARGAIN… WELL THAN YOU take 20% off of that….and it works out to .23 cents a sheet FOR […]
