Daisy is new to me for PCC251

Happy Tuesday! The theme for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge fits me perfectly when it comes to the Daisy Delight Photopolymer Bundle (Daisy Delight Photopolymer Stamp Set and matching Daisy Punch).  You see, I was late to the party in ordering it (not until end of June) and late to use it (Monday night).  Most demonstrators preordered it and when the catalog went live June 1st, due to so… Read More »

Ever use Embossing Paste? I did with PCC247

Happy Friday! Today’s card was a fun card to make. I’m using some of the new products from the annual catalog. Now I must admit when I first saw the Embossing Paste in the catalog it did nothing for me, but once I watched the Stampin’ Up! video it jumped into the top 5 must haves for me, it’s smooth, easy to use and dries really fast. The video is below… Read More »

PCC243 Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday, last night’s hockey game did not end like I hoped, the Penguins lost, not to worry, it’s a seven game series. On a more positive note, what we thought was a pool liner issue turned out to be a pool cover issue and every time we thought we were draining water off the cover, we drained water out of the pool. Bring on summer, I’ll have a pool!… Read More »
