A Wedding Gift Box…

Here is the last project in the Wedding Suite I’ve been working on this week, in addition to the Baby Suite.  This little gift box is just the right size for a small gift (jewelry), gift card or check…


and here’s a shot with the Baby gift box…


These two suites have been fun to work on this week.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing them put together and gaining information to inspire you to make one or all of these projects.  Here’s the video…

Here are the Digits for this gift box…


  • 6″ x 12″ DSP, scored on the long side at 1 1/2″, 5 1/4″, 6 3/4″ and 10 1/2″
  • Score on the short side at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/2″
  • Cut all tabs to score line.
  • Place adhesive on the right side of the DSP on all tabs.
  • Fold box together and decorate to your little heart’s content!

I love this little box…hope you like it, too!

A Wedding Gift Bag…

So here is my second video this week…I’m on a roll.  This is what we are making today to coordinate with a couple of other wedding projects shown earlier this week…


This little gift bag coordinates with these two projects from earlier this week…


Sweet. right?  and here are a couple of examples on changing up the dsp and decorations to make these gift bags…


The first one coordinates with a baby card and favor I’ve already shown.  Tomorrow I hope to video a gift box that goes with both of these sets.  So cute!

So with no further adieu…

Here are the Digits for you:

  • Cut the DSP 6″ x 12″ and score on the long side at 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″.  Then on the short side at 1″ and 5″
  • Cut your tabs and place adhesive on the right side of the tabs and fold up your first bag side.
  • Then place adhesive on the right side of the long tab and fold up to form your gift bag.
  • Make your topper and tag, punch holes at the top through all layers and pull your ribbon through to tie a bow.

You are done!  Isn’t that cute? and a great way to use up your old DSP, too. I know it’s a small little bag, but a great big check will fit into it! haha

Video II…Building A Spring Fence Gate

Did you watch the video yesterday?  The first video in this two video presentation had the most views I have ever had in one day…Yippee!  Today’s video shows how to make two different fence gates and builds on the instruction in the first video.  I realize the first video is a tad bit long (I really try to keep my videos under 10 minutes) but it does contain a lot of basic information.

So let’s build another Spring fence gate…

If you have watched both videos, you are probably ready to get started on your own creation.  Need supplies?  No problem.  Just click on the “Shop Now” star to the right and you can have everything sent right to your door.

Questions?  Please send me an email and I will reply as soon as possible.  I’d love to see what you create.  Send me pics!  I may highlight your art on my blog and send you something special in the mail.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”A year from now you will wish you had started today.”

Creative mind…inky fingers…happy person!


Video…Building A Spring Fence…


Promises are promises so today is the first of two videos on building a Spring fence gate.  This one is 21 minutes long (you could have a cuppa!).  I will post the second video tomorrow so after that you’ll know more than you’d ever want to know about building a Spring fence gate.  Ready?  Let’s get to it…

Just a note…after you cut your “planks”, be sure to sponge your plank edges with the Basic Gray ink to give your gate more dimension.  I forgot to do that in the video, but do mention and show that in tomorrow’s video.  Do you feel like building?  I’d love to see what you create.  Feel free to send me your pics.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”All you need is love…and a tiara…and maybe a cookie.”

Are you inky like me?  Happy stampin’…


Processing New Stamps Sets…Video

There’s not many things more fun that receiving a new stamp set and getting it ready for use.  Here’s a video that shows how to process rubber and polymer stamps to get the best results.

I’ve included information on how I organize my stamps by category and them by color.  It may not work for you, but I have been buying SU! stamps since 1999 and needed a simple way to be able to find what stamp I needed when creating in my studio.

It’s always fun to see how someone else organizes their studio and supplies.  Here’s the video…





Ombre Effect & Fringe Scissors…

Way back when I remember trying to make fringe grass with a pair of scissors one blade at a time.  Time consuming with questionable results.  SU!’s new Fringe Scissors (#133325, $9.95)  are the bomb!  I know they are on backorder so if you don’t already have a pair, you need to get your order in now.

Recently I’ve done several projects using the Fringe Scissors and realized I might save you some time and frustration if I did a short video and showed you a couple of tips to guarantee perfect results the first time.  You don’t have to suffer through some of the mistakes I made.  Here are a couple of photos of Fringe Scissor projects followed by the video…


A pretty daisy effect using three strips of cardstock (2 1/2″ x 11″), one Daffodil Yellow, two Whisper White scored at 1″.


This one shows an ombre effect starting in the middle with Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.  Cut and scored just like the daisy flower.


And here is a cute little card using the Fringe Scissors and the ombre effect.  The Fringe Scissors make quick and perfect work of this card.

Here’s the video to show you more..

How fun was that?  You can order your Fringe Scissors directly from my blog.

Video… Pretty Little Spring Banner…



Wow!  Thanks guys…I’m genuinely flattered you liked the banner so much in yesterday’s post.  I filmed a video for you after so many requests.  Hope you are inspired to make your own creation.  By the way, I’d love comments or even email pics of your creations.  We can all share our art.  Here’s the video…

Did that help?  Sorry for the little blooper  where I didn’t have the paper handy.  If I told you this was my second video because 3/4 of the way through the first video the camera fell…would that make you smile?  It’s all an adventure.

Speaking of adventures…would you like to do what I do?  Would you like to join my team?  We are a group of ladies who create together and encourage one another to be all we can be creatively.  I’d love for you to email or comment to me to talk about the incentives that are available right now (like $150 worth of supplies from any active catalog for $99, 20% discount on all you buy, FREE registration fee for the national convention in July worth $295, NO pressure to ever have a party or demonstration, you can walk away at any time without penalty of any kind).  Just jiggle my email and we’ll talk.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Have BIG dreams and you will grow into them.”

Inky hugs and happy stampin’…



A Happy Dance & A Video…

Not a video of a happy dance…but I am doing a happy dance right now and I just had to share with you!  This is my 100th post! Who would have every guessed?  I know to some it may not seem such a milestone, but I’m for celebrating EVERY milestone no matter the size.  One hundred posts means coming up with 100 original ideas or inspirations from someone else, implementing that idea, photographing it, sometimes videoing it and then posting it.  It’s quite the process and I’ve found I enjoy it very much.  Especially when I get feedback from followers like you.

So a big thank you to all of you who follow this blog and even comment occasionally…I would be no where without you.

Today I’m posting the video on “the card in a box” promised to you after I posted this…


I told you then they were addictive and I really mean it.  In the video you’ll see three other “cards in a box” and all the directions so you can create your own.  They are amazingly easy and fun.  Here’s the video…

Did you stop the video and get those dimensions?  From there it’s all easy street.  Send me a pic of what you create.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today:  “Don’t be pushed by your problems.  Be led by your dreams.”

Happy stampin’…no go get inky!


Multiplying Bunnies…

Here is a cute little tag you could use for Easter or Spring.  It would also make a perfect gift topper with the addition of a bow or a card front.

Here’s the video…


Here’s your “B-ism” for today:  “When you  feel like quitting, think about why you started.”

Hope you enjoyed the video and those cute little bunnies…I’m up to the first knuckle with ink today…


Scenting The Perfect Blend Cup Video…
