I think it is time to clean up my stampin roost

Hi Everyone:  Does the sudden realization come to you that you need to clean up your stamping or craft hideaway?  Mine did yesterday.  As I was making this card, it was, put something down and then have to look for it the next time I needed it.  Like tape, stamps, cardstock...all of it.  So before I can do any more cards, I must....

My card today is inspired by MOJO151 and Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 42.  The colours are peach parfait, pear pizzazz (both are the new In Colours from Stampin' Up) and can be ordered HERE.

Fall is coming and along with it is the Holiday Mini catalogue.  This will be available to customers September 1st.  Contact me and I will get one to you.  Also, it's time to book your fall workshops.  Contact me for all the details or check HERE


Stamps: Vintage Vogue (W – 117690, C – 118598)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Sunny Garden DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits

Well, the smoke has finally cleared and the air quality reading to normal once again.  However, we are going to heat up again tomorrow, so who knows what may happen with the fire situation.
Until next time.....


  1. Beautiful card! And I hear you about cleaning your space. Happens to me often. I've heard "a messy desk is a sign of a creative mind." but I guess too much mess can stifle creativity.

  2. Wow very pretty card! Love the orange!
