My stampers were singing while they were making these awesome Eclipse Technique cards. They were literally singing, I had the 70’s music station on and there was a lot of singing!
I just love this technique and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) was the perfect match! This pack of paper has musical notes and the words to a few Christmas songs in Black on White and White on Black. We didn’t stop at musical notes, my stampers also made a FALL card.
This was my 2nd version of the card, below was my first.
I decided to go for the simpler, crisp look but a couple of my stampers loved the sponge version and made that one.
I was also playing around with this one.
After SINGing a song or two and FALLing for the other cards it was time for a cats and flowers!
This card was inspired by Sue Campfield, I love the hidden cat in the flowers.

In a previous post on August 13th I showed the result of my Sunday designing day with my friend Debra LaFountaine for our Autumn Shadow Box class. We had 13 stampers at my house having fun stamping and putting together their shadow boxes. Here are a few photos of their end result.
Arlene and Karen
Lori, Chris and Barbara
Michele and Sylvia
Susan (first time stamper!)
Rita and Debbie
We had to book a second class for those that couldn’t make it to the first one. If you are local to the Central Florida area and would like to join us, contact me.
The birds are missing above the Sling Back Chair, we decided to add them before the class.
Note to self and everyone out there with a Big Shot…DO NOT put a paper shim as your bottom layer in your Big Shot. It can get crinkled up and roll into the middle area of the Big Shot this is the only way to get it out.
After a successful extraction of the crinkled shim and a few more little pieces of card stock and vellum, it’s all back together again!
This is the order in which a shim should be layered; platform, shim, cutting plate, card stock, thinlit, and top cutting plate. Lesson learned!
I spent the day creating and stamping with my friend Debra LaFountaine! I’ve been promising my faithful stampers a Shadow Box class for the longest time so this coming Saturday it’s Shadow Box time! Debra and I collaborated in creating an Autumn design and we’re looking forward to helping our stampers make their own.
We used the Colorful Seasons Bundle and love the results. This stamp set has so many possibilities that we are using it for 3 more shadow box classes, one for each season.
This is what it looks like when mounted in an actual Shadow Box.

My niece Sheila just had a beautiful baby girl on May 30th. She didn’t know the sex of the baby and wanted to be surprised so we postponed the shower for after the birth. This type of shower is called a ‘Sip & See’. The concept is to come sip some coffee, wine or champagne and see the newborn baby. Below are a few pictures of the event, my sisters and I love to put out a great display!

The first time I heard about Parkour was when my niece asked me to make Parkour Cupcake Toppers for her son’s 11th birthday. Google and Brother ScanNCut
to the rescue!
Of course I had to use this for the birthday card.
Here I am with the birthday boy, Isaiah! I love this kid, he was so appreciative of the cupcake toppers, he told me they were great and thank you over and over again!
