I am in FUNdraising Mode!

Hi Everyone,
I busted out my Cricut machine yesterday (boy, I forgot how fun this thing is...) to make lots of cute images. At the end of this month, I will be setting up for a FUNdraiser to benefit the Troy Family  and my old friend George who is suffering from Maligant Melinoma. Sadly, it spread to George's lymph nods when they found it and recently spread to his pelvic area, 😦

Today I worked on and created a Focal Board to act as the backdrop to the tables which will hold the Silent Auction baskets that will be raffled off.
George's daughter Emily painted a picture of a whale with the tag line "Just Keep Swimming" and so that's what I went with for our theme.
I think it turned out really cute and if you look closely, there is a little Scuba George swimming!
If any of you have an On-line business and would consider making a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. I will be busy putting baskets together and I will post pictures of my Stampin' Up! basket that I am creating as well as a fun Mary Kay basket .
Have a great week friends ~
Happy Hugs,

Today I had to make a Sympathy card and I don't know about you but these are not cards that I usually make. In the past I have always purchased a store-bought card but I really wanted to convey my sincerest heartfelt condolences to my old friends son's.
I immediately turned to the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set/Bundle because I knew it had the perfect images and sentiments to go along with it.
See how simply this card comes together and really makes a statement with it's elegance.

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Hold the phone folks - this is a SUPER cute idea for sending a unique card or adding a gift card as well! I love how this turned out and those little coffee cups are just precious ... The holidays are right around the corner so why not start pacing yourself so you can have plenty of beautiful handmade gift ready and you can relax and enjoy all the festivities and merriment of the season. Get a head start and save yourself the headache, not to mention with it being soooooo hot outside, it's a great excuse to stay indoors and keep cool while crafting.
I have been playing some Christmas c.d.'s too while I am creating and it really helps put me in the mood!


Thanks for stopping by, I am so glad that you did...

Ep.#578 ~ Christmas In July | Embossed Golden Topiary

 Happy Friday Everyone,
I hope you are enjoying my Christmas in July Series, I am having a wonderful time listening to Christmas music and making cards! 
Today I had an idea for the garland stamp from the "At Home With You" stamp set (I know, yes I am using it again...). I also love the look of embossing on Christmas cards, it just steps the card up a bit.
This is such a pretty card and would be very easy to mass produce on a larger scale. 
I hope this gives you another idea for using your stamps a little differently than what they are designed for, give it a try yourself. It's fun to come up with unique ideas when creating our cards.


Thanks for watching and have a great weekend ~

Ep.#577 ~ Merry Christmas Card | "At Home With You" BY Stampin' Up!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Crafty Friends,
We are just a little less than six months until Christmas and all the festivites will be in full swing, gosh - the time always flies when the 4th of July is over... I am using the fantastic stamp set "At Home With You" from Stampin' Up! in todays tutorial. I have been using it a lot lately and I love how versitile this set is. I had this idea rolling around in my head and thought that the ribbon stamp from this set would make a really cute country star! Well what do you know - it did, lol!!!
I am really happy with the simple, rustic feel of this card - just lovely.


I hope this challenges you to try to think outside of the box so to speak. Try using your stamps in different ways, it's fun to see what you can come with.
Please share YOUR projects with everyone over on my Facebook page: The Happy Stamper
I would love to see all the fun ideas you come up with! Make sure to like my page and share your cool tips and tricks with all of us.

Ep.#571 ~ Adhering Sticker Images to Cling Mount Stamps

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am and we just came home from taking our daughter to the airport as she departed for a trip to Europe! We are very excited for her and I can't wait to get cracking on making a photo album for her so she can just drop her favorite pictures in it when she gets home. Her 21st Birthday is in July and we will be celebrating when she get back.
Do you have trouble getting your stamps with the sticker on it to adhere to your clear block? Well, I thought I would share with you guys how I get great adhesion using  our Mono Mutli Glue on top of the image sticker.


The glue dries pretty quickly, usually within 10 minutes or so, it really does the trick!

Hi there Everyone,
I hope you all are enjoying the start of your summer so far, we have been super busy and enjoyed hosting a fabulous Graduation Party for our youngest son recently!
As many of you know, I LOVE to decorate for all the holidays but the 4th of July is one of my favorites. You see all the fun decorations and the 4th of July tree I made two years ago for our front hall. It sparkles and shines and I giggle when I see cars and passerbyers stop to look in through the windows to see what the tree is all about. I am certain they must think it's a christmas tree, lol!
I hope you enjoy the town and get some inspiration and make your home fun and festive.

Momma Duck 🦆 Gets News Coverage!

Hi Everyone,
If you follow me on Facebook you know about the sweet momma and daddy Duck that have blessed us with making their home in our yard. I give daily updates on her and the incredible story of her natural love and acceptance of a plastic Easter egg that she found in the yard that blew off one of my Easter decorations. 
This incredible creature has brought this bright green plastic egg into her nest alongside of all seven (7) of her real eggs and sits on them all day every day. 
A friend, Cathy suggested that I contact the t.v. stations here in Chicago and after giving it some thought I did and ABC Channel 7 News here in Chicago was at our house within a hour! They loved the story, so keep your eye out for it tonight on the 5,6 or 10pm news! They mic''d me up and I shared her sweet story ~


Have a great day,

Happy Saturday - I have been in my craft room all day working on Graduation 👨🏻‍🎓 decorations for our youngest son's party coming up soon. 
But, I wanted to share this great idea 💡 to help you manage your Washi tape. It's not my original idea, I have seen several people on YouTube use this method and I wanted to share it all of you too!
