Highlighted Saran Wrap Technique Video


HAPPY SATURDAY!!!  It's a gorgeous day here in Wisconsin so I'm getting my video loaded early so I can spend my day outside!!!

Here's a super easy technique that produces a super cool wow!!!  I'm calling it Highlighted Saran Wrap...I'm using saran wrap to create a background and then going back with a little bolder color to highlight my stamped images.  This card is a lot more spectacular in real life - REALLY - the photos just don't do it.

This card uses the new BLOOM WITH HOPE stamp set - an exclusive hostess set in the new catalog!!!  You can have the chance to get this stamp set FREE when you place your order by tomorrow night (Sunday, June 29th) in my $1000 WORKSHOP GIVEAWAY - see the details below by the hilarious PARTY image!

Apothecary Art Sample & My Room


Here's an elegant card I made using the the new Apothecary Art stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I can't tell you how much I LOVE the new Framelits.  They are sooooo easy to use.

The new Blossom Punch is a perfect background for the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in the middle.  Where did this Designer Paper, ribbon and matching Brads come from???  The upcoming Sale-A-Bration mini catalog - that's where!!!  The Everyday Enchantment paper is just gorgeous...and the matching brads are adorable - they come in a bundle with two rolls of ribbon.  Sale-A-Bration starts on Tuesday!!!  These items are FREE with a $50 order...can't wait to share them with you!!!


You can see the Adorning Accent Embossing really good here.  We have the dies and the matching embossing folders.  I love them!!!


Cut the edge and then emboss it - what would be better???

Here's an update on what's been happening in my new stamping room....I'm calling it my HAPPY PLACE...because I can't wait to get out of my frigid dungeon!  It just so happens that I have a "under construction" bathroom right next to my HAPPY PLACE.  This really came in handy when I was cutting all the wood trim.  So glad I didn't have to run back and forth to the garage in this weather.  Here's my work station....that's my compound miter VERY good friend!!!


And my new filing cabinets...I picked these up at WalMart.  I wanted white filing cabinets to store my cardstock in...soooo....I sanded them and spray painted them white.


This is not the finished product...but I do have to tell you that painting black cabinets white takes quite a bit of spray paint!  I also have to tell you what NOT TO DO!  DO NOT let your husband talk you into just using his left over spray paint in the garage for the final touch ups, instead of going and buying one more can!  URGH!  It is definately different on the finished product.


I'm just finishing up recessing my nails here.  


I have to tell you that my room is pretty much done!  I have a couple little things to the gap in the floor by the closet opening...urghhhh.  I'll figure something out!  Anyways - that's my problem - not yours.  I am now in the process of building a cabinet for the 55" long piece of countertop I ordered. Here's the start of my cabinet - LOL!  All I know is it needs to be 55" long!  What you're looking at is the base - so it's upside down right now.  And I'm building the cabinet from the shelving that's leaning against the wall.  The staircase spindles you see there will be part of it too!!!  I have some big plans for this baby.  It's gonna be my Big Shot center!!!  Can't wait to show you what I come up with - off the seat of my pants!

Framelits Dies Video & NEW Room Sneak Peek!!!

Here's another great video from Stampin' Up! with some tips on using the Heart Edgelits:



If you've been wondering where I am....well - I have GREAT news about my new stamping room - you remember - the one I started gutting back in September!!!!  I've been working like a dog trying to get it remodeled. Here's a little sneak peek:

I just can't hardly wait to show you my finished room!  I took out all the wood molding and carpeting...I've laid a laminate wood floor - built these shelves in the closet - painted the room 3 different colors - painted the ceiling...I painted all the molding white and installed the baseboards, window and door molding.  I have to paint the crown molding and install it (I have it all cut and ready).  I've recessed all the nails and filled them in with wood filler.  I still have to hit them with a little paint.  


When all that's done - I have to build my table...I'm still thinking pretty hard on this one. I ordered countertop in an "L" shape - I bought 2 filing cabinets - sanded them and repainted them white.  I'm planning on putting the file cabinets under the counter top on each end to hold my table up.  The part I'm struggling with is figuring out the leg in the front corner of my table...  I also ordered a piece of countertop to make a cabinet under one of my windows (YES - you can see I will have windows!)  So I have to build something to go under it.  You know I'll show you a ton of photos when I'm done!!!!
