Copy and Share Everything - Pinch Top Box - Throwback Thursday

 Hi Beauties~

It's Throwback Thursday, so get out all those retired stamps, DSP, and colors...

I am so happy that their are so many wonderful stampers out there that I can learn from.  Just like you learn from me, I learn from others.  In the stamping world we often  use the acronym C.A.S.E., it means Copy And Share Everything.  I am casing a wonderful Pinch Top Box from Sam at Pootles.co.uk.  I saw this great box on Pinterest and had to CASE it for you.  I think this will make some great boxed gifts for Christmas this year.  So quick and easy.  All you need is a Simply Scored., some scissors and tape or glue.  A little decorating and you are good to go.

Hi Beauties~

Here is the first Washi Wednesday in six months.  Sorry it has been so long - I have missed just as much as you.  I was so exited to be back in my studio again.  Today I am going to show you a couple of tips when making this card.  Can you tell by the picture what they are?

Stamping in New York.... Back in Arizona with more stamping to come !!!

Hi Beauties~


I am back from New York for a few weeks and am already loving being home in Arizona!  I don't even mind the heat!  I am back to ALL my stamp sets and most importantly, my Big Shot!!!

I can't wait to get back into making more videos for you all.  I did make some cards for our hotel guests quite often and they really enjoyed them.  Here are some of the cards I made while in NY.  Hope you enjoy them.

 This is a card that I made for my Dad's Birthday.  I used the What's you type for the background.

 This one I gave to my my grandson Trent for his first birthday, using Gorgeous Grunge and What's your type.  This card is similar to my Dad's birthday card.  That is because I made them on the same day because they both have the same birthday.

 This card was a fun one.  I sed the fleshtome blendabilities for the doggie.  I made this one for my brother.  He started his own salsa company called Mags & Tilly Salsa.  He couldn't go wrong because it taste just like my Grandma Esther's salsa.  I am so proud of him and can't wait to see where this venture takes him.

This card was just one of those happy accidents.  I was very pleased with the outcome and everyone who sees it, has told me how pretty it is.  I will show you in a later video how I did it.  So keep your eyes out for it.  I originally made it for my Mom, since I was really missing her.  My parents live in California, so we were 3000 miles from each other.  Well instead of sending this card, I decided to keep the card and drive cross country to go home and see her.  It was a great week!  I cried as soon as I saw her... No matter how old you get, it is always so comforting to be hugged by your Mom and Dad.
