Crafting Forever Set of Note Cards

When I first saw the image of the pens in the Crafting Forever stamp set, I immediately thought it would be perfect for making note cards.  I paired it with the "Just a Note" sentiment from the Better Together stamp set, and my vision became a reality!  Please watch the video at the end of this post to see how the card was made.


The pens are embossed in copper on a piece of vellum and sandwiched between the top and middle layers of the card front.

The sentiment "Just a Note' from the Better Together set is also embossed in copper.

To complete the note card, I stamped the image of the pens on the flap of the envelope.

Introducing Stamp of the Month Card Kits at Stamp With Anna


I'm exited to introduce a Stamp of the Month Kit Club at Stamp with Anna.  I'm frequently asked if I sell kits for the cards I make, and I've always had to say "No, I don't."  Well, now I can say, "Yes, I do!"  The program is really quite simple, and there is no monthly obligation.  Check out the details below:

1. On the 1st of each month, I will post three cards that I've made using the “Stamp of the Month”.  The projects will be posted on my Facebook page and on my blog.  The stamp may be part of a bundle with coordinating dies or punch, in which case you must order the bundle.
2. All projects will use only images and/or sentiments included in the featured stamp set or the bundle, so there is never an additional stamp set to purchase!
3. You then order the stamp set or bundle directly from my  Stampin’ Up! website for delivery directly to you.  Orders must be placed by the 10th of the month.
4. Once I am notified by Stampin’ Up! that you have purchased the featured stamp set or bundle, I will send you, FREE, all the other materials needed to make each of the three posted cards – cardstock, ribbon, embellishments, die cut labels, embossed pieces, etc.  Envelopes are included.
5. When I post the three cards, a full list of additional supplies used – inks, adhesives, etc.  will be included.  You can add those items to your stamp set order to save on shipping if needed.
6. You will be given private access to view my video tutorial on You Tube so you can make the cards at your convenience.
7. All purchases will count toward your points earned in the Frequent Buyer Program.
8. If you already have the featured stamp set or bundle, you can purchase the supplies needed to make the three posted cards for $8.00.  Envelopes are included. You will be invoiced through PayPal for the kits. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Holiday Thank You Card

The Christmas cards are all done and mailed, and now it's time to get started on the Thank You cards!  I just love this time of year because I always "have" to make cards!

This card is a good design when you have to make multiples.  Although there is an embossed element as well as some die cutting, it really did go quickly.


For step-by-step directions, please see the video below.  NOTE:  If  you are viewing this post via an email notification, the video may not appear due to security settings.  In that case, you can see the video HERE.

Easel Calendar

These easel calendars are so quick and easy to put together, and they make a great gift.  Each year I send one  of these to my customers along with the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.   This year, I have some extras, so if you do not currently have a Stampin' Up! Demonstration with whom you are working, and you request an Occastions catalog between now an January 31, I will include one of these easel calendars in your package (while supplies last).

Christmas Quilt Baby Card

Although the stamp set used to make this card is called Christmas Quilt, it can be used in so many other ways -- like this baby card.

The front of the card is so delicate with the Soft Sky seam binding bow.


To make the inside look polished, I added a frame to cover the rough edges.


The inside of the card is finished off with an overlay of the quilt border.


When the inner card is opened, the greeting is revealed.
