This IS Halloween! Everybody scream!

This morning I added a few new Halloween and Fall themed cards to my Avidly Stamping Etsy Shop and one of them has already been included in a treasury!

A big thank you to Melissa Ratner (heartwyre) for including my Silly Pumpkins Halloween Note Card in the This IS Halloween! Everybody scream! treasury!

Here is a closer look at my Silly Pumpkins Halloween Note Card:

This card and many other handcrafted goods are available in the Avidly Stamping Etsy Shop.  Check it out!

Special Order

A few weeks ago one of my customers contacted me and requested several custom mini-cards.  She puts them in her daughter's lunch box to let her know she is special and loved.  Isn't that sweet? My mom used to do that for me when I was a kid and I always loved finding those little surprises in my lunchbox.

My customer requested pink, turquoise, and anything with a Zebra/White Tiger print.  Here is what I came up with:

Aren't they adorable? My customer was thrilled with them and that made my day!

Mini-cards (3"x3") are available in sets of four and include envelopes for just $5 + S&H! If you'd like a set, custom made for you just email me at They are a great way to show someone special that you care!

Falling For Fall

The warm weather the past week has made me long for fall.  I'm ready for the cooler weather, sweaters, soups, and cozy evenings on the couch.  To take my mind off of the heat I made two adorable fall-themed cards a couple of days ago. I'm looking forward to more fall themed projects, but I couldn't wait to share these cards with you!

Both of these cards are available in my Avidly Stamping Etsy Shop. For more info on these products (and many others) go to:
Please keep my paper goods in mind for the holidays! Gifts, favors, place-settings cards, invitations, Christmas, and holiday cards, etc. I love custom orders!

For My Navy Man

My hubbie has been asking for note cards for awhile.  As a manager he often comes across situations where a handwritten note is an appropriate gesture to thank someone for a job well done.

Recently I got my hands on a nautical themed stamp set and made a set of cards, just for him.

I really like how they turned out and loved using this stamp set and coordinating designer paper! I'm looking forward to making more nautical themed projects.

A few changes...

If you've visited my blog lately you may have noticed a few design changes and an absence of Stampin' Up! related advertising.  This is because I've come to the hard decision of ceasing to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Its been hard to find new customers in the San Diego area and the economy has even my most faithful crafty customers holding their pocketbooks a bit tighter.

My Stampin' Up! website for customer orders will be available through September 14, 2011. After that you can contact me directly to place an order until October 31, 2011.

Although I won't be a demo much longer that doesn't mean I will stop crafting!  I will still have cute projects to share with you on this blog AND I still have my shop on Etsy if you like hand crafted things and feel like buying them instead of making them yourself.  I hope you stick around and see what I come up with next!

I love the way they are turning out.  I did a photography set titled Sicilian Memories and they sold within minutes of blogging them! I have several other photography sets in mind, but for now I have a few patterned sets that are also really cute - and available for purchase in my Etsy Shop!
