Last weekend…

Last weekend was kind of a complete incomplete projects and play with new “stuff” weekend.  I finished up the Halloween cards that I had been working on, all 44 of them!  I finally had a chance to make the Halloween tags in my Paper Pumpkin kit and get them ready for Halloween.  I played with the stamp set that came with my Simon Says October Card Kit and made a cute card.  It still needs some work but it is getting there.  The big event was that I finally took our new Sizzix Big Shot out of the box and played with it!  We don’t have a lot of dies and embossing folders yet but it was fun to get started.

I tried out both of the embossing folders that we have, swirls & chevrons.  I used the die from the Simon Says kit and made a few coffee cups.  Then tried out my “thanks” and Christmas frame die that we bought.  I haven’t made any cards with them yet but ideas are whirling around in my head.  So many ideas, so little time!  Time to create some more!


I started making cards in the 90's and have recently started creating again. It has been exciting to catch up on all the new techniques and tools that are now available! I also enjoy cross-stitching and any creative endeavor. I live in Carmichael, CA which is a suburb of Sacramento.
