Love is for the birds!

Last Saturday night instead of sitting down and watching the Borgias, I went up to my studio for some uninterrupted stamping. It seems lately, I only stamp here and there for about 15 minutes or so.

I find Valentine day cards get me through the post holiday creative slump.

This simple card is from a card recipe found on day one of Jennifer Maguire's Clean and Simple online class. This is about as close to a one layer card as I can get!!

Three weeks to Valentine's day, so get your heart on and get crafting!!!

Handmade Baker's Twine

Baker's twine is all the rage right now. Where would we be without it. I know I used a ton of it on my holiday cards this past December. But of course as crafters we need a multitude of colors and that can get pricey. I stumbled across a blog that showed how to make your own baker's twine. WOW!! What a revelation! The above are my first attempts at making my own. Not bad huh?

Wait till you find out how easy it is to make your own. You won't buy it again and you can have any color you want!!

Happy Crafting!!

Where is Spring??

About a month back I received my box of new stamps and dies from the new Love and Kindness collection from Memory Box. Full of stuff making me wish for spring and more time to create. Somehow creating papers for school just doesn't do it.

Here is a card to usher in spring- hard to see actually happening when I look out my window and see snow. Please head over to the Outside the Box blog to see how I created this card.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
