Jimmy Wayne - Paper Angels

Happy Saturday Everyone,
  I wanted to share this meaningful video with all of you & ask that each of us purchase a small gift for all of the children that are alone & living on the streets. Perhaps your childs school or your local church has a "Giving Tree" where you can take a mitten & get the item listed on it. I have chaired these projects in the past & it is very rewarding.
  Not everyone has been blessed enough to have a loving & supportive family to raise them. So many children are homeless & living on the streets & it makes me so very, very sad.
  Thank you for considering & letting those who need us, that someone does really care.
Catch the Spirit,

Episode #316 ~ Super Simple Sunday #32 Gift Basket Goodies!

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends,
  I have been super busy making cards and goodies for a gift basket I am putting together as a donation on behalf of my women's group that I am in. We raise alot of money every year and donate the proceeds to needy families and charties in our area.
  Pink seems to be my color choice this holiday season, so out of the box for me! I just love it though and really want to do a pink tree in my daughters room.
  I used some retired Stampin' Up! sets as well as current ones to make these pretty cards, so I hope this might inspire you to break out those stamp sets you barely use.
  Have a restful day with your families today and let's keep the true meaning of Christmas in our hearts! Jesus' birth!!!

Episode #315 ~ Christmas Fun!

Hi there Happy Friends,
  I hope each & everyone of you had a memorable Thanksgiving and are looking forward to the holidays as  much as I am! We had my brother-in-law and my sister-in-law staying with us for Thanksgiving and it was great to see them and spend time showing them around New York City.
  Surely, many of you know the feeling of having family far away and I am most grateful they were willing and able to make the drive out to New Jersey.
  In this video, I share some of the projects I have been working on while waiting anxiously for our guests to arrive! I will probably do a video on the making of the Gingerbread Boy card and also I have received a request for one on making the tags. They make great little hostess gifts for this time of year.
  Thank you for watching and listening, I know I can tend to babble...

Episode #314 Super Simple Sunday #31

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends,
  Crazy day here in my house, life is getting back to normal since "Sandy" & the Nor'easter hit last week. Kids are back in school finally, which means I was able to play in my craftroom! Yippee!!! I had to edit this video because it was too long & I want to make sure I give credit to Yvette the Garden Scrapper from Splitcoast for the awesome idea for this beautiful card. I cut out the part where I mentioned her name where I edited it. You could make it using any color with the Mica flakes & have a stunning card.
  Have a blessed week & i can't wait to make some more beautiful cards using the Christmas Lodge stamp set.

Episode #310 ~ Yikes! There is a Bear in my Yard!!!

OMGosh you guys,
  I was uploading my previous Pumpkin Poop video when this precious, rather large youngster waddled right past my den window! He is sooooo stinkin' cute & while I was uploading he even came back for more corn. He kept starring up at the hanging ghost upstairs hanging from the balcony, he wasn't to sure what to make of that!
  Aaaahhhh... this is mountain life at it's best!
  Beary Warm Huggs,

  Here is the super sweet Pumpkin Poop Treat that was requested by a viewer. I will post the poem if you need to refer to it so you can make your own. Look for it under Pumpkin Poop and also Halloween. Have a great rest of your Sunday and don't eat to much candy corn. I am trying hard not to!

                                                               Pumpkin Poop Poem
                          I started to carve a pumpkin with my carving knife & scoop.
                          But the pumpkin got a little scared, that he took a little poop!
                          It looked so cute & funny, just like a candy treat
                          So, I am sharing it with you beacause you are so sweet!

Episode #308 ~ My Halloween Tree 2012

Happy Tuesday Everyone,
  I am really in the spirit for Halloween & I can't wait to get my whole house decorated! Yesterday, I made the trip through New York State to Hobby Lobby in Middletown, NY. I just love that store & I also make a pit stop at T.J. Maxx also & picked up a few more goodies.
  Deco mesh is such a bomb, I love to work with this stuff! It makes everything look so professional. I started this project with a pre-lit black, 6ft tree from Hobby Lobby. I put lots of Hallween goodies on it & they are not meant to be used as an ornament, but hey... it works for me!
  If you have any questions, please let me know... this is a super quick & fun project to brighten your home.

Episode #307 ~ Use It or Lose It! #16 "Wickeed Cool"

Hi Everyone,
  Happy Sunday! After a super fun evening spent at a neighbor's rockin' party last night, we are making today a lazy, relaxing kind of day. I listening to a live band don't you? Nothing like it!
  I have had this ADORABLE stamp set called "Wicked Cool" for sometime now. I just love every image in this set & finally sat down to create with it. I got this idea from a poster on Splitcoast by the name of Lih52. Thanks to her for this fun idea!
  Cute & easy is the name of the game for me & I love cards that can easily be mass produced. Have a wonderful Sunday wherever you are & take time to "Use" what  you have.

  With the temperature here in New Jersey today close to 90, I am thinking fall thoughts & everything that goes along with it!

Hi Crafty Friends,
  I have been really crazy with this shopping stuff, but I will definately put it all to good use! I just came across this video from last week when Y.T. wouldn't let me upload videos.

I loved meeting all the sweet gal's at a Christmas card class that I attended as well last week, I'll share those darling cards a little later. Next week, I am going to my first ever Copic Class & boy I am super excited!!!
  If you live in the nothern N.J. area & would like more information on where Paper Anthology is located, just let me know. I am sure I will be spending alot of time ( & moo-la) there, lol!

4th of July Banner Swap!

Hi Crafty Friends,
  Well... It's almost the weekend & I am sooooo looking forward to relaxing & spending time with my family! It;s going be wonderful having my whole family together to celebrate our oldest son's 20th Birthday. It really seems like yesterday, he was alittle baby & I was singing "The Wheels on the Bus" while holding him. Bitter sweet...
  Quickly, I wanted to invite anyone who would like to join in on the 4th of July Banner swap that I am putting together. If you love vintagy looking banners, then this is the swap for you! What better occassion is there to show our American pride! Here is the list of participants:
                                                Deb (shelton 1567)
                                                Steph (steph10892)
                                                Sara (thealffadog)
                                                Maureen M.
  I am in need of 3 more people to finish spelling out "July". So, if you are interested & good with making deadlines, please PM me your name/ y.t. name, address information & e-mail. I will put together a final list with everyone's assigned letter & when it needs to be mailed to me.
  Please, only join in if you can follow through on this, it's really fun, but quickly becomes "not fun" when someone doesn't follow through. Don't get me wrong, I totally undertand that "life" happens & emergencies do come up, but I am talking just generally.
  I can't wait to see everyone's tags & I just love to decorate my home for the 4th of July! I hope you do too...

Computer Meltdown!!!

Hi Everyone,
  Just a quick note to let you know that I have been trying for days to upload a video for you to YouTube and I am not having any success. It begins as though it is going to upload and after hours and hours (overnight even) I find that it dumped the video and says I have no internet connection. Now, I do have internet connection as I am able to post this for all of you, so I am not sure what is going on.
I may just have to call in my computer guru, Miss Veronica from VK Design Co, but for now I will make another "lame" attempt to figure this out for myself. I really don't like asking people for help!!!
  I am off to my craftroom to complete a few scrapbook layouts before the daily frantic carpooling begins!

So, this is what I created, I hope it inspires you to get in the summertime spirit. I am so looking forward to the warm weather & sunshine...

Episode #293 ~ Super Simple Sunday #26 "Sweet 16" Centerpiece

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you are enjoying this glorious weekend... I have been busy getting started on making our daughter's "Sweet 16" Birthday Party centerpieces. What fun I am having!!! I found these really pretty & very tall vases on sale last week at A.C. Moore. Much to my suprise, I also found that they are carrying Deco Mesh as well, yippee... Her gown is tons of amazing layers of teal, blue. light blue and dark blue tule. Lot's of sparkley beads and rhinestones, really stunning!!!
  Originally, I was planning on having floral centerpieces made, but it was really exspensive and I figured I could make something that really reflected her bubbly personality. Her face lit up when she saw this and I knew I hit the nail on the head. *Twirls around the room* I am sooooo excited for her and her big day!
  If you have any questions, just let me know...

Happy Sunday Everyone,
  Greetings from soggy and wet New Jersey! After having such extremely warm weather this year, a big rainstorm moved in last night, cancelling the 4th quater of my daughters softball game, rats! I am glad to see it though, our grass and greenery really need the water. Plus, it's a good day to be in my scraproom, for a little while anyway...
  In today's tutorial, I am using the Stampin' Up! stamp set called "Flower Fancy". It has alot of stamps in it, I love sets that give you alot of bang for your buck! I also used the sentiment from "Heard from the Heart". A little Baja Blue and some Lucky Limeade ink and viola ~ you have a quick and easy card. Actually, I made a whole stash of these cuties for my card box. I like being ready at a moments notice if I need a card in a hurry.
  Have a peaceful rest of your Sunday,

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you all are doing well & enjoying this glorious weather we are having. I thought I would share with you some of the scrappy goodness I picked up at Hobby Lobby & Big Lots. I had a road trip with my favorite girl, Maggie my Golden Retriever! It took us about an hour to reach our destination & it was a beautiful sunny day for a drive through the country. I think I will make more of these road trips in the future, perhaps every season. I LOVE Hobby Lobby!
  A big thank you goes out to Valerie! Check out her adorable St. Patty's Day & Easter cards she sent me. I love them Val, you are so sweet & I will think of you while I am scrapping. Thanks again sweetie ~
 I will try to post some of the pictures I got of Buddy from the show Cake Boss while I was (briefly) at Rachael Ray. I have them on my f.b. page, but I am not sure how to post them on my blog, they were taken with my cell phone.
  Never a dull moment for The Happy Stamper... Gosh!

Episode # 285 ~ Stampin' Up! Fresh Vintage Card

Hi Everyone,
  Happy Saturday friends! I didn't get a chance to post this video to my blog last night, I was up really late playing in my craftroom with some of my new goodies that arrived yesterday. I love when that Big Brown truck pulls up to my house, I even know the sound of the engine!
  I tried my hand at making a vintagey (sp) card & I really like the way it turned out. I am usually a really "cutesie" kid of gal, but this was a great change of pace.
  It's the weekend & that means family time & crafting time, so I hope you all get to enjoy both. Our oldest son is arriving in at Newark International at 8:00am this morning so I am super excited to see him! Yippee!!!

Episode 284 ~ "Use It or Lose It" # 15 Scrapbooking

Hi crafty friends,
Happy Sunday everyone... I hope you weekend was relaxing & you were able to spend time with your families & friends! I am trying to get caught up on all my scrapbook pages, it drives me crazy being a 1 1/2 behind! Aaaarrgghhh! I am on a mission now & also to use all the goodies I have on hand. Shopping has taken a backseat to completing projects for me, but I did recently place a Stampin' Up! order. I've really been trying hard to use what I have & not shopping for eveything new. I am not saying that shopping isn't fun & theraputic, but I want to use all the scrappy goodness I have invested in. I think you know what I mean... Anywoo, have a great rest of your Sunday evening & I hope you have a fabulous week. Thanks for watching!

Happy Sunday my sweet friends,
I hope you are are relaxing & enjoying the day with family & friends. I sure am & planning on getting more scrapbooking done! In today's video, I share how I put pages together quickly using paper & products that I have on hand. "Use It or Lose It" is definately my motto & I challenge you to do the same! I am not saying shopping for new "goodies" isn't fun & theraputic, but it's important to use the "goodies" we have previously purchased. Have a blessed day & happy crafting!

I hope you are enjoying a really big football day with your family & friends! My scrubby is making is delicious mosticholli & meatballs for dinner, yum ~ It doesn't get any better then that... I did manage to get in my craft room this afternoon & play with the new Petal Die from S/Up! that's been on my desk for awhile. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed the perfect die to use to make a treat holder. I picked up a bag of lollipops at CVS the other day & this makes a fun treat to pass out to friends, co-workers & neighbors. It's really easy to make & it's always fun to see peoples faces light-up when they receive a hand made gift!
I hope this gives you some inspiration & if you have any questions, just leave me a comment & I will get back to you. This is the big game to see who will be in the Superbowl!!! Woo-Hoo! I am rooting got the Ravens...ssshhhh!

Episode #277 Super Simple Sunday #21

Happy Sunday Everyone,
In today's episode, I show how to make these really cute, funky, little monkeys! LOL!!! Really, I do & they are super simple & made from punches that you probably already have. You could easily make these in all different sizes as I did & make lots of cute projects with them.
I am really looking forward to making some Valentine's Day projects & can't wait to get started. Thanks for stopping by & visiting with me today & have a groovy week.

Episode #276 ~ A Little Haul...

Hi Crafty friends,
Just stopping by to say "hello" & share with you a few things I picked up at A.C. Moore over the weekend while I was out dress shopping with my daughter. She has her Sweet 16 Birthday Party coming up in June. I am trying to get ahead & begin planning what I will be making for "thank you gifts" for the guests.
I was in need of some fresh inspiration, so I picked up this idea book & can't wait to have time to look through it.
