Hello Friends!

On a personal note,  today was a very big day for me, my peers and our company. I work for American Water and our company has been going through a business transformation. We're changing all of our software. It's been 3 years of planning, designing, building and training. Today was our "go-live" and it went very well!  I wanted to share that with you, since lately I haven't been blogging. The last several weeks have been extremely hectic. Hopefully, my life will return to normal soon : )

Stamping, scrapbooking and paper crafting is my stress reliever. I enjoy playing with inks and trying different techniques, so today's card:
  •  I sponged Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede & Always Artichoke onto Very Vanilla card stock for the background. 
  • Stamped the image from Elements of Style stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed using Early Espresso embossing powder.
  • Quick & easy...that's how I roll.

Ink: VersaMark

  1. Beth, this card is breathtaking!!!! I don't think any words wld do it justice. Oh so clever. ooxx

  2. Hi Beth so I just watched your video on the fold up card!! Loved it just wondering where and what is the item called, it's the scorer/cutter I love it!!

    1. Hi Adrianna!
      It is wonderful! It's called a Stampin' Trimmer from Stampin' Up! and if you like, you can order one straight from my blog. The item # is 126889 for $29.95. I have many trimmers and in my opinion, this one by far is superior to the others. It's larger, the numbers are easier to see and you don't have to remove the scoring or the cutting the blade....they both fit in the track at the same time.
      1 cutting and 1 scoring blades.
      Measuring. Extended 6-1/4" base. Extend ruler to 15-1/2".
      Storing. Compartment under base to store blades, scoring stylus, more!
