Scrap 'N Card Class

Hi there,  Gosh, I feel so bad because I have neglected this blog really, really bad. I must make myself do better and make more time for this blogging. I am taking the time thought to post some pictures from today's Scrap 'N Card Class. The layout today is for Fall! I love fall! Out of my group of friends and family (their all family), some prefer to create a one page layout and some prefer to create cards. SO.....I let them choose and set up tables and hold both at the same time.. Yep, sometimes it gets a little hairy trying to keep up with both groups but I love it and I love them all.

The cards I cased from pinterest and the layout I made up myself. The Birthday Card is created from Basic Black and Whisper White CS and Back to Black DSP using the World of Dreams and Teeny Tiny Wishes stampsets. The Christmas Card is created using Basic Grey and Blackberry Bliss CS (I love the color combo) and Silver Glimmer Paper with white embossing and the Bright & Beautiful stamp set. We also used the Circle Framelits and Star Framelits. Everything used is from Stampin' UP.

Happy Stampin' and Happy Fall!

Going way back:

Hi there,
I've been going through some old pictures and came across these old ones of my Mom in her cow milking days. On this particular day, we either were getting ready to go to church or had just gotten home.

Can you tell that these pictures are from the early 70's....Oh my gosh, cameras have come a long way, haven't they? Anyway as I walked up to take pictures of her, she tried to squirt me with "Spots" milk.

We used to have to skim the cream off the milk, put it in a jar and sit and shake the dickens out of it until it turned into butter. Wow! THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!!
In memory of Mom----Mary "Maggie Kramer"

Dryer Sheet Cards

Hi Stampers,
I am so sorry that I have neglected my blog for so long. It is a cold snowy day here today so I thought it would be a good time to show you the cards and scrapbook layout that we created at my last stamp class. I had some women that wanted to do the dryer sheet technique on cards, so I gave them their choice of the cards or layout. Both used the dryer sheet and everyone had a good time. (At least they seemed to enjoy it) LOL...I had a great time. But anyway, here are the two cards that they made.

 The top 2 photos show the winter birthday card. I am trying to show off the glitter in the second photo. The photo doesn't do the card justice. Believe me, I am so not a photographer. For this card, we used Whisper White Card Stock #100730, Indigo Island CS #122923, Lovely As A Tree Stamp set W#128655 C#127793 and Sassy Salutations Stamp set W#132070 C#126707, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter # 102023, Early Expresso Ink Pad #126974 & Bakers twine #123124, Anywhere Glue Stick # 104045, Marina Mist Ink Pad #126962, a Stamping Sponge # 101610 and a Used Dryer Sheet.
 For this Valentine Card, we used Whisper White CS # 100730, Cherry Cobbler CS # 119685, Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder # 116824, Used Dryer Sheet, Anywhere Glue Stick #104045, Staz On Jet Black Stamp pad # 101406, Cherry Cobbler Marker #119681, Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad # 126966, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine #123125, Countless Sayings 1 Photopolymer Stamp Set #135892 and Banner Blast Stamp Set W#133551 C#133554 and Banner Punch # 133519.
The Banner Blast Stamp Set and Banner Punch can be yours for FREE with your order of $50 in product during Sale-A-Bration.
 Now! for the layout! I won't go into alot of detail because some of the things we used are retired. But I wanted to show you the layout as I think it turned out really cute and is so fitting for all the snow we have right now... (I am so sick of winter at this point)
The top photo is the layout inside the Stampin' Up Page Protector and the next photo is out of the protector.

 We used Silver Glimmer Paper #124005 for some of the snowflakes and the Bigz Snow Flurry Die (retired). In the center we used a Basic Jewel Rhinestone #119246. We also used the Perfect Polka Dot E.F. #117335 (embossing the dryer sheet onto the snowman)
This last photo is to show you the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the embossed-dryer sheet snowman.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this super long post and if you would like to purchase any of the product that we used, Please visit my Stampin' UP Online Store at Thank you so much for stopping by and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
