Gift Bag Fun

Hello everyone!

I had a few requests to show how to put this cute gift bag together. It's a bit different than the way I showed everyone at Red Letter Journals. Through trial and error this seemed to work the best way for me. I didn't realize but the shot of the way the one tabs were cut wasn't on screen clearly. I'm so sorry for that. The tabs should be cut horizontally NOT vertically. I also forgot to say use a bit of glue on the inside tabs so they lay flat. 

I hope this helps. And please remember you can still pause the video anytime to make sure you can see what I've done. I was trying not to take too long(but it does seem a bit rushed!) If you have any other questions please feel free to ask!

Take care and I wish you time to create but most of all time to STAMP!

Till my next post...

Sunday Stamping With Shirley

Hello Everyone and Happy Mother's Day!

It seems like forever since my last post. I wanted to do just a quick share today of a few pictures of my Mom and the card I made her this year. Hope you will enjoy them.  The first Picture is of my Mom in September 1955 and the 2 smaller pictures one where she is holding me and the other she is standing holding my brother David next to my sister Mary, that's me in the foreground in blue shorts.

Over the years I've made her quite a few cards but I really liked this one. I took a class at Archiver's with my good friends Amy Day, Joe Morgan and Betty Scott. We learned this color technique in class. The image stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps and the sentiment is from the Stampin Up set Teeny Tiny Wishes. I wish the pictures would do it justice. Mom loved the card and her gift we got her this year. All my siblings and I went in and got her a tree for her front yard. Now to get it planted this week! 

Take care my dear blog followers. I wish you time to be creative but most of all time to STAMP!
