Coming Soon...

In just a couple more days, the new catalog will be live!  Items can be ordered starting at 1AM Pacific time on June 2nd.  I’m staying up to order.  Who’s with me?  If you’re local, you can get your order to me ahead of time and I’ll place the order for you as soon as the system allows.  

This card was made with the Awesomely Artistic stamp set on pg 125 plus One Big Meaning on pg 16.  Those stamped images on a Mint Macaron background are just beautiful!
Happy Stampin!

Yummy New “Market Fresh”


I love this new stamp set that has the coordinating Farmer’s Market paper.  I love it for cards, but I think it would be great to use the paper to make a recipe book as a gift. 

I’m so exciting about the upcoming new catalog!  Customers who have ordered from me this year will receive one for free (if you haven’t already!)  Not my customer yet?  No problem.  I’m happy to send you one for $5 or free with any order.  Contact me at if you’d like one.

Coming Attraction: Timeless Love


Here’s a pretty way to decorate a wedding gift for that special couple.  It’s made using the new Timeless Love stamp set and coordinating designer paper.  So pretty! 

PS – Thanks to all who joined me at the 2CousinsEvents crop yesterday.  It was such a fun day and I look forward to the next one. 

Also, the stamp positioner I was using is called the MISTI and is available from the following website:

For My Mother


This year I made my mom a simple, watercolored card.  It was nice not to have to worry about whether I’d need extra postage because of bulky embellishments and my mom loved it.  (Granted, she’s a bit partial.  She loves every card I make for her.)  I used StazOn ink for the sentiment and flowers since I knew I’d be watercoloring and I didn’t want them to run.  Usually I avoid using StazOn with my photopolymer stamps, but I decided to make an exception this time for my mom. 

Have a great Mother’s Day weekend!  While I’m not a mom to a human, I am a doggie mom, so I plan to celebrate the holiday.  I suspect I’ll get some wet, sloppy, furry kisses tomorrow, but then again, I get those every day.

I Placed My Order!

It's time for the new catalog and I stayed up late to place my order.  I'm so excited!  Once the catalogs arrive, I'll pop them into the mail for my out-of-town customers.  So, who qualifies as a customer?  Anyone who has ordered from me since January 2015 will be mailed a catalog.  (Local folks can pick theirs up or arrange for delivery.)  So if you haven't ordered this year, and would like a catalog, please let me know by sending me a message at  I am happy to mail you one for $5.

Here are the Deals of the Week for this week:

New Colors Are Coming Soon!


Here is a sneak peek of the five new in-colors for 2015-2017!  The colors are: 

Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaroon,

Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe

I love, love, love the Mint and the Taupe.  I’m not a fan of yellow as a color, but I can handle Dijon since it has more of a brown tone.  The Cucumber reminds me a little of the retired color Gumball Green, so I’m pretty happy with that color.  And the Watermelon is bright and cheerful.  Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the new colors.  I was hoping for a new shade of purple, but I guess I’ll have to wait a little longer.
