One More Craft Show – Mistletoe Market in McKinney

At the Grace Avenue UMC Holiday Bazaar I met Deb who said she had been looking for a Stampin’ Up! vendor for her show in McKinney, and she added how much she just loved Stampin’ Up!  Well, how can you turn that down.  So, recently added to my schedule is this show.  If you live nearby and want to shop my retired items, take advantage of show only specials, and enter my door prize, here are the deets:

Kind & Cozy and Vintage Postcard – Open House Projects

Thank you to everyone that came to my Open House.  I believe I had 16 ladies that came and went during the 3 hour window.  At 4pm, I drew the door prizes and 5 lucky ladies won 6 door prizes (yes, Pam won twice!!).  Along with shopping retired goodies, I also had two Make’n’Takes at my Open House.  Here they are:


  • Kind & Cozy


  • Baked Brown Sugar
  • Whisper White
  • Pacific Point
  • Strawberry Slush

Tools / Extras:

  • Stripes embossing folder
  • Basic Jewels – Pearls
  • Tafetta ribbon

The Kind & Cozy card was inspired by another card I saw similar to this layout.

Here’s the Vintage Postcard card with lots of sponging…love that sponging…although somehow my Crumb Cake sponge was missing during the Open house, so they improvised and did direct to paper.  Sorry ’bout that.


  • Postcard
  • Chalk Talk
  • Postage Due
  • Timeless Talk
  • Very Vintage – Jumbo Wheel


  • Crumb Cake
  • Midnight Muse
  • Early Espresso
  • Naturals White

Tools / Extras

  • Distressing Tool
  • Postage Stamp punch
  • Stampin’ Sponge
  • Baker’s Twine – White
  • Chalktalk Framelits
  • 1 3/8″ Circle punch

Vintage is my favorite!  And the Naturals White makes a great card base for this layout.  I had no idea how much I’d be using the Timeless Talk stamp set…love all those images!

    Stamp Scrap Art Tour 2013 – Mesquite, TX

    I had so much fun at the StampScrapArt Tour at the Mesquite Convention Center the last weekend of January, and will definitely do this show again next year.  It was great to talk to so many ladies that share my passion. 

    Saturday was busy, busy, busy!!!  Thank goodness for helpers!  Sunday was a little more quiet making it easier to answer questions in more detail.  This photo was taken right before we took down the booth.

    Thank you to everyone that stopped by my booth.  I raised $300 for the Little Elm Library during the two days…thank you everyone that purchased these retired sets from the library collection.  These were donated to the library and I am helping them turn them into cash.  I still have about 137 sets left and will have them at my next show in April.

    Happy Stampin’
