 Hi everyone!

It has been a while, but I am back.  This time I am sharing a look at some cards I made using the new Stampin' Up! Take to the Sky DSP and the Adventurous Sky stamp set and dies.

I love how they turned out.  I hope you do, too.

You could easily change out the sentiments for Father's Day cards, as well.

Or really any occasion, for the guys in your life.

Here is a closer view of each card.

For supplies to create these cards:


·       163447 Adventurous Sky bundle (stamp set & dies)

·       163756 Simply Said Mix & Match photopolymer stamp set

·       163436 Take to the Sky DSP

How can you create these cards yourself?

I made it super easy for you.

I created a cutting guide, which creates 3 each of 4 different cards, and it is available now for just $6 CAD.

(For personal use, or for SU! Demonstrators to use for a class.)

(I can accept etransfers if you are in Canada, and Paypal for outside of Canada.)

Just use my email address to send payment to, along with a note letting me know which template you are purchasing, and I will email the PDF to you.  

My email:

(Also, if anyone knows how to set up an automatic download on Blogger so it will allow you to download after purchase, please let me know.  I am not sure how to do that.)😃

Happy creating!

Trusty Tools Cards

While I was away for a Scropions concert in Las Vegas, the switch over from Close To My Heart to Stampin' Up! happened on May 1st.

If you haven't already heard the news, Close To My Heart is in the process of shutting down.  (Officially us Makers were out of contract with them on April 30th.)  They worked so hard behind the scenes to have the Makers who wanted to continue in the scrapbooking industry have a great place to land and continue on, and they teamed up with Stampin' Up! to do just that.  (The latest numbers I heard was that 3/4 of the makers transitioned over to Stampin' Up!)

So here I am, figuring out everthing that is new on the business side.  (Not always the easiest!  lol)

And I am sharing with you the cards I have made as my first share using a combination of new Stampin' Up! products and CTMH.

I used my 6x6 One Sheet Wonder to create 5 cards.

(If you use a full 12x12 sheet, you can create 20 cards!  With zero DSP leftovers.)

You can find the link to my 6x6 One Sheet Wonder on my sidebar. 🠊

As past CTMH Makers and new Demonstrators, we were given permission to be able to use our products (I believe until the end of the year).  So I did just that.

I will be back with more, so stay tuned.

If you want to check out my new website and look at the new SU! catalog you can find it HERE.

Happy crafting!

Large Card Keeper Box Instructions


Hi everyone!

I know it has been quite a while since I shared on here.

BUT... I have so many new things to talk about.  I will get to that another day though.

Today I want to share some instructions that I finally got around to typing up as a PDF file for you.  It is for a Large Card Keeper Box, originally designed by Erica Cerwin way back in 2012.  I created a box using Erica's free instructions that I shared here on my blog back in 2012, as well as sharing it on Pinterest.  I still get contacted with requests for the instructions (just 2 again last week) because of the reach that Pinterest has.

I finally broke down and took the time to type them up (it seriously takes a day to do all this), and I included all of my changes to her original instructions, and I am sharing those with you today.  Erica's free instructions were shown step by step with photos on her blog, but they were not in a printable file. 

So after all these years... here they are for you, also for FREE.  Enjoy!

Two Sheet Wonder Cards

 I was playing with my Two Sheet Wonder again and created even more cards.

First one up is this cute cactus themed set.

And this masculine set, which turned out to be one of my faves.  Unfortunately, I don't seem to have taken any photos of the completed set, which I don't have anymore.  I have well over 300 cards for sale at a local store.  I'm happy to report that they are selling well.  

And lastly for now, a set of coffee cup themed cards.  For this one I used single sided sheets of patterned papers (usually I use double sided papers), so the end result was that it created 32 cards instead of 16.  It was a lot of cards in the end, but I love how they turned out so much!

This is seriously a wonderful Two Sheet Wonder.  

You can quickly create your own set of beautiful cards.

Here is a wonderful example.

Jayma Malme created this set of adorable cards using my Two Sheet Wonder.

Cute, right?

Please check her awesomeness out on Instagram.

Well, that is all for today.

Happy creating!

Large Card Box featuring Pumpkin Spice


After creating a wonderful set of 16 cards, I decided to pull out my Large Card Box tutorial and make a matching box to hold them.  

They all fit inside perfectly too, even along with their 16 envelopes.

Wouldn't it make a perfect last minute gift for someone?

If you are interested in getting my instructions for my Large Card Box Tutorial, you can send $4 CAD through PayPal (or eTransfer if you are in Canada) to me at, and I will email you the instructions.

Happy creating!

Pumpkin Spice Cards with Vicki's 2 Sheet Wonder


Hi everyone!

Hope you are well.

I'm back today to show you another sampling of fun cards I created with my NEW Two Sheet Wonder instructions, this time using papers from the very recent Pumpkin Spice paper pack.

Here's a better look at the cards...

The sweater stamp I used on my cards is from an old retired set called Ugly Sweater.  But there currently is a CTMH set that you can still get called Pumpkin Spice - Scrapbooking which even comes with matching dies.

The sentiments I used are all from one great set called For All Occassions.  A perfect addition to anyone's stamp collection.

I personally love how these cards turned out.  I hope you like them too.  ;)

If you wish to purchase a copy of my Two Sheet Wonder instructions, you can find the info here.

I also created a matching card box to hold all of these cards, using my Large Card Box Tutorial.  (I am going to create a seperate post showing it, so please look for that.)

Happy creating!
