Snowy Clipboard

Snowy_clipboard_3 Hey there!!

How do you like this clipboard?  I just love making these and can you believe there’s no stamping at all?  If you’re on the fence about buying some of the Stampin’ Up! designer paper, you need to order it, you never know what I might do with it next year, just kidding!!

Seriously, starting tomorrow, purchase three packs of designer paper and get one FREE! Call me (913-851-3336) or send me an email ([email protected]) if you’d like to place an order. 

It feels kinda weird making Christmas items on Halloween…especially since it’s a beautiful sunny day here in Overland Park, Kansas.  But, I have only two days left until my booth and I’ve got some more goodies to make and share with ya!  Check back soon, you’ll have a chance to buy some of these goodies, after my craft fair.

Here’s one more little goodie for ya….some Reindeer Food.


Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Stampin’ Up! Anniversary to me!!

Just a quick was my  5th year anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  How cool is that?  Teaching rubber stamping & scrapbooking for the past 11 years, in the Kansas City area (Overland Park & Olathe)!!  Did you know I was a Creative Memories Demonstrator before Stampin’ Up?  That’s an interesting story but let me just say, when eyelets came out, I had to have them in my scrapbooks!   My Stampin’ Up! upline is a dear friend to me, but a hobbyist demonstrator, so I’m tooting my own horn, I know a bunch of you can relate.  In honor of my anniversary, let me see some commnents, girlfriends!!!!    Have a goodnight and Happy Stampin!!

Christmas Clipboard

Christmas_clipboard Good morning Stampers!!

This cute little clipboard is another item I’m making for the booth. Isn’t it just darling?

I choose this really old picture of Chase and Brook because I had extras and it kinda matched the paper,  cute huh? 

(Sorry the picture isn’t the best, I changed my camera settings during the concert and now I don’t know how to change it back. I’ll add that to my to do list for next week.)

A big "Thanks" to Lise for coming over yesterday and helping me get my goodies ready, you were a huge help!!

If you’re local and want to attend the craft fair on Friday, send me an email and I’ll give you the addresss.

Here’s another picture to show you the clipboard without the photo.


Have a super day!!

Dashing Clipboard

Dashing_clipboard_3 Sorry I went missing for  a couple days!!!   I think I posted that I was headed to the CK Convention here in Kansas City and by the time I got home each night I was to tired to stamp.  So, instead I made this really cute clipboard. 

I have to share what brought this on…I go to non Stampin’ Up! events, see really cool ideas, then come home and use them with our paper and our product.  I loved the little clipboard but wanted to see what a big one would look like…and here it is. 

If you’re a regular on my blog, you’ve seen other clipboards that I’ve made, but this one is easier.  I’ll share the details but not until after my Holiday Treats Class that’s right around the corner.

Now for the details…I’d like to say I put Old Olive ink all over it on purpose but I didn’t.  I wasn’t paying attention and I dropped the ink pad and it landed right on my paper and then it hit me…it looked good…So I ran it over all the ribbon and paper and I like it!  (When you come to my class, you don’t have to to distress it.)  This is a perfect example of how you can fix anything when you mess up!!

All you need to make this Clipboard is some strips of Dashing Designer Paper, one solid sheet of cardstock, assortment of ribbon & Old Olive pigment ink to distress the edges of the clipboard.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Dishing the Dirt…..Who saw "Moonlight" last night?  Wasn’t it the best ever?  I cried, of course.  Can’t wait to see next week!!!
