Episode 215 ~ Easter Blooms Card

  Hi Friends,
  Can you believe we got another snowstorm here in New Jersey? Well, I say... "YIPPEE!" I love the snow & that means time to play in my scraproom. I have been itching to pull out my new stamp set "Easter Blooms" and reproduce this card that I saw in my demonstrator magazine, Stamping Success that i recieve each month. I knew as soon as I saw it, that this was going to be my Easter card that I will be sending to family and friends. I really like the whole vintage feel of this GOJUS stamp set!
  Thanks for watching and have a wonderful day friends...
Big Huggs,

I got the scalloped square die for my Big Shot & I wanted to make thank you cards for all of my scrappin' & stampin' sista's that came to my party last week! Great way to spend a cloudy afternoon in Jersey, making really cute & easy cards.

Episode 210 ~ My 1st Fairy in a Bottle!

Happy Monday crafty friends,
This is my 1st attempt at the "Fairy In A Bottle" & I really had a wonderful time making this! I used the smaller Starbucks bottle ( I recommend using the larger size) & lots of pretty lace & bling. I downloaded the sweet picture of Shirley Temple from the internet & added lots of Stickles to her. I certainly plan on making more & if you haven't tried them yet, give them a try! They really are fun to make.
Happy crafting,

Episode 208 ~ What's Goin' On at The Happy Stampers Home!

Hi Everyone,
Happy Sunday my friends ~ Please excuse my voice ( or lack there of...). I had a really fun Stampin' Up! workshop at my house this past Thursday & talked & laughed so much, I totally lost my voice!
I wanted to share with you the beautiful goodies Brigitte ( shoeprincess1 on Y.T.) made for me. Incredible! I love everything & am so glad I got to meet here face to face, finally.
All 3 projects were a big hit & everyone is in love with Dazzling Diamonds! LOL! I know I am too... Last but not least, I wanted to show you the absolutely gorgeous Captured Fairy in a Bottle from Cindy, you know her as Cyntialoowhoo on Y.T. Brace yourselves, it is amazing! The camera does not do it justice, but it truely is incredible. It reminds me of my Grandmother, Gammy so much & I will think of her everytime I look at it.
So, that's what The Happy Stamper had been up to, for now ... I am going to grab a cup of tea & head down to my craftroom.
Thanks for visiting with me today & enjoy the rest of your weekend!
