50th Wedding Anniversary Invitations

Here are the invitations for my in-laws Surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. I like how they turned out. I kept them small so that it wouldn't seem like a big affair, but I wanted them elegant and different. The brothers and sister wanted the directions and meal choices inserted too, so I created a pocket for that. Unfortunately, the party has been canceled because my mother in law is in the hospital and we do not think they will be coming back to NJ from Florida at all this summer. Please say a prayer for her and her husband of 50 years for healing and peace. She has pulmonary fibrosis and just got moved out of ICU after a week stay. If you'd like to send a card, please email me and I will send you her address. Thanks!

Stair Step Card

It's a little old...I made this for Mother's Day, but it can be used for a birthday too. It is a stair step card- really easy and pretty. You can make it more simple by using die cuts or bigger items, or make it really special with hand cut flowers! This one is in Certainly Celery and uses Tea Party DSP along with embosslits with the Big Shot! I hope you like it!

Monthly Christmas Card Classes

Join me for a Christmas Card Class in Summer! Every last Wednesday of the month we gather around my dining room table to create 6 Christmas Cards. By November, we will have over 60 cards ready for mailing (if you attend each month). Come to as many as you want. Get matching envelopes too! All for only $10. Next class June 24th at 7 PM. Here are some that we've done already.

Wild About You Pop Up Card

This was so much fun to make! I always loved those pop up interactive books as a child, so of course I love making this card! Isn't this stamp set cute? It is called "Wild About You". You would think this would be a great card for a young child, but honestly, I would love to receive this as an adult! Here's what the outside looks like.
Stamping On Candles
I love "stamping" on candles! Here's one we made at our May Club using 5th Ave Floral stamp set by Stampin' Up! I used the soon to be retiring Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze In Colors of ink. This technique works great on the new LCD wax candles as seen here. Contact me for more information on how to stamp on candles, or host your own workshop where I can show all your friends how to create beautiful home decor items.

Father's Day Cards

We made this awesome Father's Day (or male birthday, Congrats) card in my May Clubs. I don't know who designed this card as I can not find a name to go with the instructions passed onto me. (If you know- please pass it onto me so I can give them credit.)
It is made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper and their Chocolate Satin Ribbon. Too cute!! I hope the men in our lives like it!
