If you’re looking for retired stamp sets, take a peek at my “retired stamps for sale” page.

I just updated it with the sets I’m selling, and soon I’ll take some photos for easier viewing.

Email me or leave a comment about any sets you’d like or have questions about.


Halloween Class!

I have a Halloween class coming up next week!  It will be Thursday the 22nd at 6 pm.

I’m excited!! Take a peek at the fun things we’re making.stamp_princess_halloweenclass

Note: That pumpkin pie marker is just a place holder for pixie sticks! :) I didn’t have any in the house when I took the picture.  Tee hee.

So fun!  These are ideas I have collected and modified from several places.

(The card is case’d from a cute card I saw online, and I need to try to find out where so I can give credit.  If it was you, let me know. :) )

There is limited room in this class, so let me know soon if you’d like to join us!  The cost is $14, and due by the 17th.

October card club

Oh sheesh, it’s been too long since I’ve been able to step foot in my craft room.  But good news!!  The construction is done!  Woo-hoo!  I’m not done organizing, but with a little help from Ikea I am getting very close.  :)

So it’s been a while, but I finally have the projects for my October card club finished and ready!  Not a minute too soon, since it’s tonight.  Tee hee.

It’s fun to have something new to share again!

Okay, how cute is this witch’s hat??  It’s a perfect treat box!  I really wish I could say this is my own original idea, but no way, I have to give credit where it’s due.  I found this on Carrie’s blog, and you can see her instructions here.


Mine is almost exactly like hers.  I think the only things I changed were the tag and ribbon.


Next is a very simple treat bag, made easy and uber-fast thanks to my Big Shot machine.  I don’t have many occasions to give a Halloween card, so I opted for a couple treat bags instead.


We’re also making a festive fall card.  ‘Tis the season, after all!
