Encouraging cards are rarely masculine – unless they are plain and boring. I designed this one with a vintage flair and filled with removable bookmarks. Perfect for a guy! Here’s the video- compete with tutorial and a product feature!

I said I would have an announcement on September 6, 2013, and I’m so excited to share my news with you!

I am combining my love of stamping, papercrafting, scrapbooking, sewing, needlework and all crafting in general so that I can offer classes in all of the above as a Creative Consultant!

What does this mean for you?

It means classes, whether face to face or online, with all supplies mailed directly to you along with a link for YouTube instructions, you’ll enjoy learning all forms of new techniques!

It means that you can look forward to getting the absolute MOST out of your classes. Your instruction will be thorough and at the end of your class you will have finished projects to enjoy! I have been, and will continue to, do research and take part in classes, seminars and webinars so that I can share the latest and greatest in crafting with you!

From organizing your tools and supplies to learning the latest techniques, you’ll be able to learn something new with every class. Like this: how CUTE!!


Want to know how to make envelopes out of paper? I have the best tool on the market!

How about how to efficiently make ALL of your Christmas cards or a stash of all occasions? I’ve got it down pat.

Want to get into sewing? I teach all of the basics!

Some things you will learn in my classes:


Tools: Which glue? Why “those” scissors? Learn all you’ll need to know about tools.
Cards with moving parts
Cards with glitter that DOESN’T come off
Cards with dimensions and layers
and lots more!


Journaling: how to tell the story
Documenting: Why and how
Super Creative Pockets: Here’s how you stash those extra pix
Personalizing: How brochures, maps and menus make your pages pop

3D, etc.

Make boxes out of paper
Make dimensional cards, snowflakes and bookmarks

These are just a FEW of the many things I’m teaching, so subscribe to my blog now and stay updated!

Want a bit of history? Here ya go:

I’ve been a crafter for many, many years. I recall sewing at the age of 11, and thankfully my mom allowed me to use her machine. Otherwise, my dreams of piecing fabrics so that they can become something “more” may have never come true.

My trend is to sew accessories such as purses, but I also love to make home decor and cool, funky clothes for my grandLittles. I like to sew clothing for myself too, and now that there are so many amazing fabrics and patterns available, I expect to be sewing a lot more!

Back in the late 80’s, I began making jewelry out of Fimo clay. It became a successful business and took a lot of time. My husband and kids worked the business with me and we were able to vacation with the money I made during a time we couldn’t have gone otherwise.

I moved from Fimo to stamping in the 90’s and I haven’t turned back. I am a Stampin’ Up demonstrator but I also enjoy creating vintage cards and pages with Tim Holtz supplies and Austen Gallery.

Whether in person or online via YouTube, pull up your “Time Out” chair and let’s get creative together!

Until then, enjoy some of these fun designs!







Thanks for stopping by! God bless!
