Big Shot, Birthday, Cards, Demonstrator Meeting

Piece of Cake

Hello, friends! I wanted to share with you my my shoebox swap for this year’s annual demonstrator Christmas party.  I used the Piece of Cake stamp set that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog beginning January 3, 2019.  This stamp set is on page 18 and is bundled with the coordinating Cake Builder punch, keep in mind that if purchased together as a bundle you save 10%!

Botanical Birthday

Happy Hump day, we are half way to the weekend!  Today my friend is celebrating her “BIG” birthday and next Saturday is her luau themed party.  So I am kicking off the celebration with a fun fold called Card in a Box.  It’s been a while since I made one of these cards and I had forgotten how much fun these are!

I did use a few retired elements on this project – Botanical Builder and Large Numbers Framelits Dies.

Hand Delivered Shoebox Swap

Hello, friends!  I have been a little MIA lately, we are still dealing with Mr. Wonderful’s health issues and I am just really burnt out with life/work and it doesn’t leave me much time for stamping.  Wowza, that was a fast weekend!  I attended my adoptive demonstrator group meeting yesterday and this was my swap card.  I love making cards that have a unique fold and this is a “z-fold” but it is vertical, I usually make mine horizontal.
