It's a Classic · Posts


Jackie wanted a card to give to Honored Queen T wishing her luck in her competing in the Miss Washington Job’s Daughters competition.  This is a card, I made for T out of scraps.  Gosh…that’s not a very nice word.  This is a card, I made for T out of leftovers.

I love how Jackie added the word “sister” to her card.  She told me that now she had Jobie sisters too, not just Wendi and Wynter.  She had to use purple ink (a Jobie color), black and gold paper for T’s college colors.  We are rooting for T at pageant and can’t wait to see how well she does!

It’s a Classic – Mom!

It’s a classic!  I hate using the word retired in the Stampin’ Up! world.  It just sounds like it should be cast away – never to be seen again.  I prefer to use the word classic.  A item that may no longer be currently available in a catalog – but still hanging around your craft space.  The idea of highlighting some of my creations with classic Stampin’ Up! products is to continue to show you how you can take what product you have left and keep using it.  I’ll also share with you what you could change to use only current product.

Today’s card is made for a classic – MOM!  The classic item in this card is the Kiwi Kiss paper and ink.  You could easily use Lucky Limeade or Pear Pizzazz (although, Lucky Limeade is my preferred and favorite choice).  Ohhh…what if you changed out the word mom to…hi…or a person initials…..hmmm….I think I need to go downstairs and see what I can come up with.
