May Birthday Card Club/Kit

May_birthday_card_2 Good morning!

I love this card….and the next one too!  I know they are both simple, but there’s just something about them that makes me happy :)  I liked them so much I made them in another color.  I’m going to show you the next card and then I need your help.


I couldn’t decide which I liked best….and I couldn’t decide which color I liked best (do you have those kind of days?). The cards use the same supplies, I just turned it around…… And they both fit in a regular medium envelope.

So, I  need your help.  Please let me know which color you like best.  Anyone can vote…..& especially the girls that have pre-ordered. Then tomorrow, I’ll add the Kit to my Chic n’ Scratch Shack and take more orders.  If the decision is split down the middle, I’ll let everyone choose which color they would like, does that sound okay?

May_birthday_card_wasabi_3  Thanks for checking in…..have a great day!

p.s.  lately I’ve had several friends help me out… almost daily and today one of them said she would be happy to become one of Angie’s Angels.  Isn’t that sooo cute?  I love it!  My helpers have a name…and they truly are Angels.  You know who you are, don’t ya? I don’t know what I’d do without you!

Card of the Week

Card_of_the_week_7_2 Good morning!!

Back by popular demand……a Card of the Week Tutorial ๐Ÿ™‚  I had so many requests after last weeks card that I decided I had to share it with you.  It’s super quick & easy and it looks good in every color!   

I’ve filmed the tutorial….I’m just waiting on the approval.  In the old days (3 months ago) videos loaded fairly quickly, now it’s taking several hours.  What are we to do?  As soon as it’s available, I’ll post it at my Stampin’ Academy. And I’ll update this post to let you know it’s available.

Update:  Tutorial is loaded and ready over on my Stampin’ Academy ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Thanks again for all the Chic StandTM orders!!  If you weren’t around over the weekend, you may not have read that I’m officially out of the Chic StandsTM.  But the good news is, I have more on the way and they’ll have Chic StandTM printed on them instead of Chic n’ Scratch.  Click here for more information on ordering a Chic StandTM.

Have a great Monday!

Altoid Tin Kits

Altoid_tins_2 Good morning!!

Aren’t these darling?  I made altoid tins for every occasion….well….not really….but…. I tried.  Here’s what I’m thinking….these tins would make a great gift for any occasion! For example….Mother’s Day, Birthday, Baby Gift, Graduation,Teacher/Staff Appreciation, Thank you, Tooth Fairy, you name it.  What does it hold? Gift card, money, change for the soda machine, postage stamps, first aid kit, hotel room key card, even your keys! Personally, I’m taking mine to Convention to hold some cash & my room key.  Maybe I’ll even make it to match my notebook ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the good news……I’m going to sell the kits to make these darling Altoid Tins.  You’ll have your choice of color family and I’ll post all the details over on my Chic n’ Scratch Shack!  It may be Monday before I can get them all posted and when I do I’ll update this post with a link.  I’ll also film a tutorial of how to assemble it once you’ve received the kit.

Thanks for checking in……Have a great Sunday!!

Whitney_bonnie Thanks Whitney & Bonnie for the darling cards.  Whiney I love cute little cards & how you had the twine tied around the cards & envelopes.  And Bonnie, your card made me order that stamp set.  I had no idea that stamp could look so good (you know when I get it I’m going to use Pretty in Pink and Celery, I can’t wait to try it).  Gerry_roxy

Thanks Gerry & Roxy for my super cute cards.  Gerry sent me a card for my birthday and Roxy’s was a thank you for purchasing a darling scrapbook.  (Love the colors on both of these cards!


Thanks Virginia & Sharon for these lovely cards!!  I’m going to put both of them on my display table during club & classes!

And last but not least, thanks Sara for this handy dandy tool.  I haven’t had a chance to use it yet but I’m sure when I do it will come in handy. It’s called a Kwik-Thread  & it’s the easy way to thread ribbon!

Chic Stands Update


Chic Stands are back in stock .. Click here to place an order.

It’s official, I’m out of stock of the Chic Stands TM.

ย  But, the good news is, they’ve been ordered and they’ll have a slight change.ย 

When they arrive, they’ll have “Chic Stand”TMย printed on them instead of Chic n’ Scratch.

Isn’t that great?ย 

I’m excited all over again!ย 

The not so good news is that they take about 6 weeks to get here.ย  I’m going to continue selling them and update the info to show the shipping will not occur until late May or early June.ย 

If you order them now, your package will be ready to go the day the box arrives (that includes, a Chic StandTM, invoice and a little stamped image).

Thanks again for everything!! It’s been a whirlwind around here and I really appreciate all the positive feedback.

Mini Clipboards

Mini_clipboards Good morning!!

Aren’t these little clipboards so cute?  I made these clipboards last night and I made Elizabeth one first since she’s the person that was so kind to get them for me…..thanks so much Elizabeth!!!   The L is for Lise, she’s been helping me fill orders lately, the A is for me ๐Ÿ™‚  & I also have one for Sandra & Sally.  Thank you all so much for helping me!!

I’m be back later today to post some RAKS.  I’ll try to group them so you can get a good look at all of them.  Thank you ladies! 

Okay, it’s official, I’m ready for a new catalog….good thing it’s coming out in a couple months (August).  I searched my shelves high and low for a stamp set to use on these clipboards. I truly looked at every stamp set in my room and the only thing that I could use was the monogram.  I was really looking for a small cute image to go in these circles.  I’d love to have a little bird or a chick.

Have a great day!

Birthday Box

Birthday_box Good morning!

I’m so excited it’s Friday….for a couple different reasons.  Number one, my hubby is going fishing this weekend and that means I get to stamp, all day and all night :)))  Chase & Brook will be with me, but you know how teens are…. busy with their own things.

I already have everything cut & ready for club on Monday so that means I get to work on all new stuff for May. And I’ve got some awesome things coming up.  I came up with a project yesterday that I can’t wait to finish & show you!!!

Oops, almost forgot, lets talk about this Birthday box….looks like a card doesn’t it?  It’s not, it’s actually a box and next week I’ll share with you how to make  it (let’s hope & pray that Veoh has it’s issues worked out).  This is the first time I’ve used the monkey from the Older & Wiser Stamp set (Level 3 hostess set),  he’s cute isn’t he?

Now time to dish the dirt….for the next four weeks…expect a little TV reminder…..  MOONLIGHT returns tonight :)))))  CBS.. 8pm Central time, right after Ghost Whisperer.  If you haven’t seen the show …you need to Tune in. You can also watch past episodes on Veoh (yes, the entire show).  If you’re a Stamper and you’re still reading & possibly wondering…"is she going to talk Moonlight" every week".  I promise, I’m not….after they announce Season two…once they give us the green light then I promise to tone it down a bit ๐Ÿ™‚  Plus you know…. I really try to keep my blog mostly about business.  I have some good customers that are fans too……. so…… girls, after the show, if you want to chat by email, you know how to reach me.  If you’d like to see the promo for tonight’s show, click here.

Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by!
