My convention swap--a little summer fun!

Terri here with a Tuesday stamping project.

I fell in love with the idea of putting a pinwheel on a card and couldn't wait to give it a whirl so to speak! 

I used several new SU products on this card---the designer series paper used for the pinwheel along with the birthday greeting stamp and coordinating framelit die are all from the new SU annual catalog. Email me if you would like a copy (FREE with a minimum $25 order).

Speaking of fun, I had a blast at the SU convention last week in Salt Lake City---check out my blog,, to see how much fun I had. Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite convention memory -- all convention stories welcome! 

I'm already making plans to attend next year, the 25th anniversary of SU; I'm sure it will be an amazing celebration!! Join my SU team now and start planning to attend with me!


  • Emboss the Real Red cs using the polka dot folder; adhere to the Daffodil Delight cs.
  • Adhere the 3" wooden skewer piece using glue dots to the card front. Slide a small piece of the red ribbon under the skewer and tie it.
  • Lightly draw a pencil line on the backside of the DSP corner making an X. Cut each line toward the center, stopping about 3/4" from the center. Erase lines.
  • With the DSP right side face up bring a corner of one cut section to the center and glue down; it doesn't matter whether it is the right or left corner piece just be consistent with the other pieces. Bring the next corner to the center and adhere; repeat until 4 corners are attached to the center.
  • Pierce a hole in the center where the corners meet; insert a glimmer brad.
  • Adhere the pinwheel to card front with a dimensional, covering the top part of the wooden skewer.
  • Stamp the happy birthday greeting in Real red ink on the scrap piece of white cs; cut it out with the coordinating framelit die. Adhere over the wooden skewer using glue dots.
Stamping is fun!


Hugs and Chirps!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:

Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 

My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
