When you want to make some cards but you’re not sure where to start, here are two tricks that I use to get my creative juices flowing… CASE. That means Copy and Share Everything.

Make the same card using different colors. If you’re like me you have a lot of different color ink pads. When you…

Personalized Gift Tags

It’s all in the packaging. Some pretty ribbon and a personalized gift tag go a long way to pretty up a package. These are the gifts that I gave demonstrators on my team when we attended Stampin’ Up! events across the country recently. Included are a “Hoping Your Day is Perfect” card made with a VersaMark background, a VersaMark ink pad and a list of 5 VersaMark techniques. It’s all packaged up in a gusseted cello bag and tied at the top with White Baker’s Twine. As I tied the twine into a bow I added a strip of Bermuda Bay sequin…
