Stamping on Candles


I had so much fun with this project, I made candles for a week.  The design possibilities are endless.  Make them to coordinate with a room, for a birthday or special event (like Easter,) or for inspiration.

There is a great tutorial on SplitCoastSTampers, click on this link to view

And a video:

My examples were for Easter.  I became catholic during Easter and wanted to make something for a few people that had touched my life.







I suggest stamping off before stamping on the tissue.  I found the ink would run a little and the images weren’t as crisp as I wanted.




Happy Birthday to You


Good morning 🙂

I have my sister as a guest card designer for the next few days.  So I’m sending out a HUGE thank you to Zoe Simpson, my awesome sister, for saving my crafty bacon 🙂

I also ran out of time to include all the normal information, so the recipes for creating this weeks cards will be added by the weekend.  I hope you are inspired by today’s card.


I just love this card.  Zoe made it for our mother’s birthday that she celebrated last week.


To be added.

Sour Cream Thank You Container


Hello everyone 🙂

Yesterday was a busy day for me, yet, in the afternoon, I managed to sneak off and create a little thank you package.  The package is called a sour cream container.  It is an easy package to make and all you need is a small sheet of paper or card stock 4.5″ x 6.5″

Conveniently, and for mine, I used a pre-cut sheet from the Fresh Prints Paper stack.  Perfect weight and size.  I’m including a short video so you can watch how to make it.

And my creation…



  • Stamp set: It’s a Wrap Occasions
  • Paper: Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (only available until June 1 – other patterns will be available after June 1, 2014)
