Nine Lives Window Card

By Wendy | February 2, 2019 | 1 Comment

As I’ve shared in the past, I am not a huge cat lover, however, I know a thing or two about cats. Cats generally love to sit in windows.  That is what gave me the idea for this card. Even though it’s not really a window, it simulates one well enough here. I put together a video to show you how I created this card.  I hope you enjoy.  Remember you could put any die cut in the window area. This card is simple and fun to make, but has a really fun element with the window. All the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of this blog post.  Please remember you get a FREE tutorial bundle from me when you place any size order.   Wendy’s Rewards Program: When you place orders with me I love to reward you.  Here are the things you can expect when […]

Happy Tails Fun Fold Card

By Wendy | January 31, 2019 | 2 Comments

This week I am featuring the Happy Tails & Nine Lives stamp sets. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Happy Tails.  If you follow me on You Tube or here at my blog you know, I am not a huge cat fan. There I said it.  You know it.  I’m sorry.  But cats just aren’t my jam. Doggies however, oh the love.  I can’t get enough of them. A few weeks back I featured the Humming Along bundle and I did a video showing you how to create this card fold. CLICK HERE to see that video and blog post. So today’s post doesn’t have a video because you can see how this was put together by watching the previous video. The only difference with this card is I flip flopped the position fo the arm piece. This is the instructional pic from my other blog post.  As I said, same […]

Do You Have Scrap Paper Nightmares?

By Wendy | January 29, 2019 | 6 Comments

Are you like me?  Are your scraps in complete disarray? During a team event one of my awesome team members asked me how I organize my scrap paper. I looked at her and said… I don’t.  It’s a big mess.  (as you see above) This conversation promoted a solution.  My other team member, Dreamia, shared how she organizes her scraps and the solution is FABULOUS. I got to work creating labels and purchased the Avery Heavy Weight sleeves (thank you Amazon for 2 day FREE shipping) And NOW! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FREE DOWNLOAD Look how beautiful it looks! I no longer have to look at a bucket of scrap paper sitting on top of my paper towers.  It did NOT bring me JOY people.  No Joy!  So happy to ditch that mess. I have created a quick video for you below as well.  Links to all the […]

This weeks product spotlight is probably going to be my favorite of the year.  I’m going to predict that now.  JOIN ME LIVE AT 10:30am PST to watch me put these cute cards together. I LOVE doggies.  I mean love.  They are like my kindred spirits in animal form.  I get them and they get me. There’s a mutual love and respect with them. Most of my days are spent with these three hooligans. Getting all three of them in a photo together was a miracle and has only happened one time, Truvy, the Vizsla, is much bigger now.  All the credit fro this pic goes to my sweet friend Wanda Guess.  She’s the BOM DOT COM! Today’s cards were inspired by all those incredible and loving people out there that help us with our fur babies! The dog sitters, the veterinarians, the vet techs, the UPS guy that gives […]

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest = ME! (WHAT?)

By Wendy | January 26, 2019 | 12 Comments

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! I haven’t done a blog hop in a really long time.  When the amazing and beautiful, Kylie Bertucci, asks if her team can copy projects you’ve done and have a blog hop with you, you say HECK YES!!!!  What an honor to be asked on this awesome event with Kylie’s team.  The fact that anyone would want to copy my projects is so humbling and gratifying. The challenge is each person on this blog hop had to find a project of mine they liked and CASE (copy and share everything or copy and selectively edit) it.  I also had to do this. I had to find one of my old projects and CASE it. I dug WAY back into my files.  The gem I stumbled on is absolutely adorable.  It also shows you the progress I’ve made as a blogger and demonstrator. The […]

Forever Lovely Wreath Builder Card

By Wendy | January 25, 2019 | 2 Comments

I am delighted with how these cards turned out. A happy wreath of rainbow flowers in all of the Stampin’ UP! color families, WITH matching envelopes. PEOPLE.  The joy these photos bring to me is ridiculous. HAHA! Only you, my faithful followers can and will understand the joy behind ink, stamps and paper. I’m surrounded by non stamping people who just don’t get it.  I am an island, and you are my source of feeling connected to other that love paper as much as I do. Have you ever had that moment when you get the new pack of paper or the new stamp set and you want to squeal? I know you have.  That’s why you are spending time looking at the photos of these cards. I did not have that moment with this stamp set LOL.  It was not a stamp set that “blew my skirt up” so […]
