Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since I posted on my blog.  I hope to get back to posting at least every other week.  I've been work my full time job as a Sales Support Coordinator but miss my blog and crafting.  Don't get me wrong I have been crafting just not blogging about it.  My Etsy shop had to be put on the back burner for now as I concentrate on growing my Stampin Up business.  My goal is to get a stamp camp going every other month and maybe even a card club!  If you are local to me in Suffolk County NY and interested in a fun crafty night out once in awhile, send me an email and I'll be sure to include you on my mailing list for upcoming events.

So, what have I been up to.  Let me post a few pictures of some of the projects I've worked on.
This little girl is our latest addition.  Her name is Coco.  She's not crafty but loves to play with my craft supplies.

Onto my crafty things: :-)

I recently created this Baby book for a client.  She wanted a 12 month book.  It is all chipboard, covered in Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin Up and I used my Cricut for all the cute embellishments. Click here to see more of this adorable album on my Facebook page. 

These adorable penguin cards I made using Stampin Up bundle Snow Friends Framelits and Snow Place stamps.  So cute!  I made 15 of these!  Wow that was a lot of cranking out on my Big Shot! 

So these are my most recent projects, There are many more as I do a card swap at a card club with some ladies, and I also swap at my demonstrator meeting. 

I hope to do another post soon with more of my projects.
For now there is the retired list from the Homemade for the Holidays Catalog. 

I'm running a special if you order through me I will send you a handmade card to send out to whomever you like and I may even throw in a special gift! Now through the end of the Holiday Catalog.  

By the way, those cute penguins are in this catalog!  Click here to see the Snow Friends bundle I was talking about.

Look for a special coming up on Monday as well for 50% off products!  
Ta Ta for now!

So many cards to share!

Wow! It's been awhile since I have had a moment to share some of the incredible cards from my monthly card club.  My "regular" job seems to be getting in the way of my ability to keep up with my blog. Now that I have become a permanent employee with my wonderful company, I no longer have to spend my time job searching and can spend more time crafting and blogging!  Yay!  Whoo Hoo!

Sadly I do not have a picture of February's card club activities.  Here is what we made in March.

The theme was Easter. Such awesome creations!

I was having trouble with my memory card so I didn't get all the pictures I wanted but I thought I'd just share what we did.

For April the theme was Cindy's pick and she picked shades of blue.  Here are the wonderful creations.

My camera is acting up so forgive the poor pictures.  Let's take a closer look

This was my card.  I thought this would be great for graduation or even baby shower, or wedding shower.  I love the sentiment on this.  

Rachelle's beautiful blue card.

Michelle's awesome creation!

Liz's beautiful butterfly blues.

Angela's Pretty Floral Family Card.

Chris's pretty blue card!

Cindy's fun and fabulous card!

Jami's card was inadvertently left at home.  I'll post Jami's card next month.  She showed us a picture, can't wait to get it!  Beautiful Jami! 

These were are fabulous projects from Michelle this month.

The step card was not that hard at all. So much fun!

The bag in a box was quick and simple using the envelope punch board.

Here are some of the items I used for my card project.  You can make the projects too!

It's a Girl Mini Scrapbook

I was thrilled the way this adorable scrapbook came out for a co-worker that just had a baby at work.

The cover title I cut out on my Cricut and Stickled it with Fruit Punch color Stickle.  The tags with the babies name I used the Stampin Up Punch Artisan Label.

The above picture features pockets with tags for a fun interactive look. 

The accent paper is from DCWV Sweet Treat paper pack.

This page also has a pocket with a tag

I hope you enjoyed my latest creation.  You can always visit my Stampin up Shop for more ideas.

January Card Club

A new round of card club has started and we have 8 wonderfully talented ladies in our group this time. We have two new members joining us this time Cris and Jami, Tracy has opted to take a break from club for a little while but all the other ladies have returned.

This months theme for card swap was hearts and flowers, or valentine type theme.

I was blown away with this months cards and didn't even want to pull mine out when it was my turn.  

Here is Jami's amazing 3D type card.  Just goregous.

Here is Rachelle's card.  The background on the front is aluminum foil ran through the embosser.  Amazing!

Here is Liz's gorgeous card!  What a perfect bow and I love the stamping on this! 

Cris made two things for us!!  This fabulous tree bag made with the new Thinlit Treat Bag Die and the gorgeous card below. 


Here is Cindy's wonderful card.  Love the embossing on all the hearts! 

Angela couldn't make our meeting but she made this beautiful card for Valentines Day! 

Here is Michelle's fabulous card with all the wonderful touches on it.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  It has some wonderful glimmer and shimmer on it. 

Here is my Valentine Card.  I used craft paper and the new stamp set Hello Life and You Plus me.

Every month Michele has a little giveaway and I've been luckily I have won a few of the fabulous crafty items.  This month I won again this adorable box filled with yummy candies.

This was made with the Tiny Treat Boxes from Stampin Up.
So Cute! 

Our project this month was a file folder card using the Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board

This is what it looks like on the outside.

And here is the inside.

What a fun project with lots of little pieces. I messed up my envelope which was stamped too so I won't show you that. lol.
