Coaster 2

Here is another coaster using the cherry cobbler card stock and Watercolor Trio stamped in the background, along with the Whimsical words set for the sentiment. If your looking for a quick project, this is it! It took me no time at all. You can also change it up by added more coasters and make a wall hanging connected by ribbon, or you can turn it into a mini scrapbook.


This was a project I made for my fellow SU demos. It's quite simple. I purchased an 8 pk of coasters from Michael's for $1, added the crumbcake cardstock and filed it down with a sanding block. I used my crop-a-dial to punch two holes on top and added the ribbon. You could either have it hanging or place it in a holder like I did. I used the punched posies stamp for the background and the Great Friend stamp set for the sentiment. In a different version, I added butterflies cut with the Beautiful Wings embosslits. There are many cute options for embellishing.

Prayer Journal

I made this prayer journal for my secret sister. It's a composition notebook covered in the cottage wall dsp. The verse stamp used was from Hobby Lobby. It came in a pack with other inspirational verses. The cross stamp comes from the Refuge and Strength Stampin up set.

Decorated Candle

This paper is not exactly Stampin' Up but I wanted it to match the colors of my living room. This is left over paper from a picture wreath I had made. The stamp sets used are Vintage Vogue and Whimsical Words.

Card Kit

This card kit contains greeting cards, note
cards, and a memo pad. I got the idea from
my up line demo, but I added the pouches to
hold the note cards and memo pad. This kit
safely made it to UT for a friend's birthday.
I used the Sending Love Specialty dsp. This
particular page of dsp I used, I believe, has
an Asian feel to it, very pretty.

Framed Secret Sister Gift

My secret sister's favorite colors are brown and green, so what better than to use the new Greenhouse Gala dsp. It was perfect! I overlaid the paper on the matte already in the frame and printed out her favorite verse, John 3:16, attached the butterflies with the pearls and Voila!

July Class Project

I held a class last weekend and we made these three cards using the cottage wall designer series paper (dsp) as well as a candle that everyone decorated with their own selection of paper, ribbon, etc.

Refuge and Strength Card Set

This was an inspirational card set I made for a friend's birthday. The idea for the box holder, which is not pictured well, came off a video from YouTube. It's been so long that I can't remember whom it was made by. I believe I have it saved on my account so if you want the clip let me know. I used the Kraft CS (now called Crumb Cake ), Lovely Flowers Bundle along with the stamp set Refuge and Strength. I'm so glad that rich razzleberry and melon mambo are here to stay!

Mini Clipboard

This clipboard is just the cutest thing ever. I bought it for $1 at AC Moore! I unscrewed all the hardware to get a better laying of the paper, which turned out to be a lot simpler than I thought. I modpodged the melon mambo DSP on the front and back along with the basic black cardstock. Along the sides I sponged with the coordinating ink pads. It just so happens that one of the flowers from the Punched Posies set fit perfectly on the clip part. The bottom is embossed with the white.
