Merry Christmas Everyone!

I just wanted to send a quick note to everyone.  I hope you are all enjoying family and friends during the holiday season and being thankful for all the blessings that come your way. I am so thankful for all of my friends who have helped jump-start my blog. Some of you did the feedburner and some are follows and some aren't even crafters but you still supported me. That means so much to me! 
Ok..... So get back to your Family and Friends.
It's Christmas, why are you reading this?  
I love you all!

Simple is Sometimes Smart (SSS)

Hello My Friends and Happy Holidays.
If you're like me, you're scrambling right about now to finish things up. I needed to make some tags for my pomegranate jelly I made for everyone. (I'll post the finished project if I get a chance). I made all of these tags in about 1 1/2 hours. I can spend hours on one project and knew I didn't have time for that.

I left the ink on so you could see the
 details you can get from the Stampmaker

I started with pre-made tags from Graphic45's Christmas Past Collection (loved them). I just started cutting squares of cardstock, distress ink by Ranger in tea dye, pine needles and fired brick, added stamping, embossing and bling.  I created 2 stamps with my stampmaker (snowflakes and trees). I really enjoyed making the snowflakes because I did so many different stamping techniques....... Embossing, distressing, double imaging and bling! I hope you are enjoying your holidays and not being too stressed.  Try to remember "Simple is sometimes smart."

First project!

Hello All:
 I've been playing away with the TC Stampmaker and I'm ready to share one of my projects. I know! I know! It took me a while but I've been soooo busy at my regular job and home life, I haven't had a moment. So,  here you go..... Tell me what you think. You'll be able to see the negatives, stamps and final project in the pictures.  For a list of measurements and supplies, please follow my blog and/or send me an email and I'll get you the info. Woo hoo! I love my stampmaker!

This card is a classic double fold card with matching envelope.
I wanted to show you the stampmaker's capabilities along
with some pics of the process.

The inside of the card is another stamp
that was super easy.

I wish you could see clearly the bling on this card
It was so fun to create. I used Bazzil cardstock for my
base. You can use any printed cardstock to personalize

Simple as 1, 2, 3
First create

Print your negative
And make your stamp.
Sorry. I didn't clean them up before the pic.
