Display Stamper Application

Here I am, applying to be a display stamper again!  I only told a few people, but I missed the deadline to apply to be a display stamper in SLC (I got two deadlines mixed up) and I was devastated! I was super excited about the possibility that SO many people would see my work and then I completely screwed up!  So this time, my girl gang pinky swore to not let me miss the deadline!

I am so happy with what I have made!  I am super excited for everyone to see EVERYTHING!
With no further ado, here are the candidates for Miss Ft. Worth Display Board 2018

Here is Miss Mermaid, looking lovely in her shell swimsuit.

Look at Miss Partridge in her beautiful feather hat.

Miss Unicorn is simply stunning in her rainbow finery.
Here is Miss Surprise Birthday Scrapbook Page
looking lovely in her polka dots.
Look at Miss Narwal with her sequins and pearls.

Last, but certainly not least, behold Miss Christmas City's
sparkly snowy Christmas finery.

Here is a close up of Miss Christmas City's beautiful banner.

And just look at Miss Christmas City's cute bicycle.

Who will win the title this year?  With so many wonderful contestants this year the title could go to anyone!  Good luck to all of our stamped entrants.

I hope you enjoyed my silly flight of fancy!

Joyful Stamping,

2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas

I teased you last week with non-christmas projects from the 2017 Holiday catalog; this week I'm going to show you Christmas finally!  I have had a blast playing with the Christmas stamps.  You know I love making Christmas Cards - preferably ones with a jillion steps that are completely impractical to duplicate!

Here are a few of my favorite GPA cards (Gorgeous Pain in the A$$)!
This is made using Champagne Foil Paper and it's gorgeous!

More Champagne Foil paper and Both Layers of the Night in Bethlehem Thinlits!

I Took this Gold and Whte Striped Gift Bag Up a Notch with Multiple Layers!

This Shy Elf is so Cute when Watercolored with Non-traditional Colors!

I didn't make JUST impossible to duplicate cards!  I made a few cards for class and cards that are perfect for your Christmas cards.

Check out my holiday schedule at for my holiday classes.  Find some free time in there for YOUR private girls' night out and give me a call and we will get you on my schedule.

Private classes are so much fun!  You bring the girlfriends and the wine and I bring the fun!

Joyful Stamping,

Holiday Fun!

The 2017 Holiday Catalog is out and it's amazing!  I've been busy playing with all of the latest stamps.

It's always such fun to see what you can do with new things.

Spooky-licious Halloween Treats

I used the new Halloween DSP as the topper for these treats.  I think the purple dark chocolate kisses are pretty!

These darling white pizza boxes are sized to hold a cookie!

These pizza boxes will be great to have all year long!  You can put a cookie in them, a tiny treat...or 3X3 cards!

Not every stamp set in the Holiday Catalog is just for the holidays.  This wine set was designed by one of the million dollar sales achievers.  She wanted a set all about wine!

There are a couple of Christmas stamps in this set that are just plain funny!

Guess what this is?

A gift card holder!

These last four projects for today are from our Paper Made Prettier Team meeting on September 9.  I think Kay covered Halloween and Fall pretty well here.  I can't wait to see what she has in store for the next meeting!

These cute treats are from our team meeting!

Just wait until you see what I've done with the Christmas Stamps!  I've used all kinds of paper and have really stepped out of the "Christmas mould."

Contact me to schedule your private workshop with your friends and see the fun things we can make together!

Joyful Stamping,
