A Year In Review Part 2

April began with being invited to participate in the Royal Blog Tour as an Honorary Queen. My project was the Cardstock Cabinet using the Pun Fun stamp set...one of my all time favorite sets! After the tour ended, I released The Cardstock Cabinet tutorial for sale.


Details and more photos of The Cardstock Cabinet and the Royal Blog Tour can be found HERE.

Also in April I took out my first ad in Paper Crafts magazine and used my Traveling Trio project for the advertisment. You can read about that HERE. If you found my blog from Paper Crafts magazine, thank you!

OMG you are KILLING me! I just had to pick myself up off the floor! That is so stinkin' cute! You must be exhausted at night with your brain working like that all day! I wish I could see a picture of a everyday item and turn it into a card! Fantastic! Love Love Love it!

Absolutely stunning. At first I was wondering why you were sewing purses and stamping and then I realized the purse is made with designer paper, how clever!!!! Love, love, love it!!! (This was on one of the postings of the purses we did in my stamp club.)


I absolutely loved both of these cards! We did them for May Stamp Club and they were a hit! I've not done many masculine cards and this Totally Tool set.

Thank you so much for showing the 'man cards'. They are wonderful! I have bald spots from pulling my hair out trying to think of a great father's day card for my class next week. Hope you don't mind if I use some of your ideas.

Oh man, I hope my card club girls never see your blog. ;) They may feel ripped off. Hee hee!

May was also full of Teacher Appreciation week posts. Part 1 & Part 2

Man, I can't believe I got all that stuff done! All total...I made 60 cake mixes for the teachers birthdays that school year! You can see a quick tutorial on how to make them HERE.

I know that I have appreciated all the cute treats this year! I don't want to use/eat anything that we have received because I don't want to wreck anything!! I have to keep it all for my files for the future! We will definately miss all that you have done for us next year!!

I really need the name of the school you do teacher projects for. My daughter will be teaching SOMEWHERE after fall semester. I will help her fill out her application at your school. If she doesn't do it, then I guess I go back to school for teaching, I apply, and we move. LOL Your teachers are BLESSED!!


In June, I make one of the Purse-onally Purses (for the July Stamp Club project) with brand new Designer Series paper that demonstrators could get on pre-order from the new catalog coming out in July! Although this was actually a July project, you can see all the purses with this new DS HERE.

I made a lot of things with this Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper. These were notebooks I made for my downline meeting when I traveled back to California in June.

Blog post comment...These notepads are absolutely adorable...TFS! I'm curious though, where do you get your notepads? Are they already that size or do you have to cut them down? And for my final question, if you have to cut them down, what trimmer do you use? Thank you for the inspiration, Becky - you are incredibly creative & talented!!! ;)

You can read about them and get instructions HERE.

E-mail question...I am in the process of inventorying, reorganizing, and alphabetizing my (300+) wood mount stamp sets and am at somewhat of a loss as to how to do it. I searched your blog for a picture of your stamp room and to see if there was a picture of how you store your sets but I didn’t find anything … so my next thought was to drop you an e-mail. I will have photos of my teeny tiny stamping area for you all this weekend.


  1. as a fellow demo, i'm intrigued that you took out an ad in Paper Craft mag...how did that affect your business?

  2. sweet!! can't wait to see where you stamp! I will definitely be looking for that post!! thanks for sharing all that you have over the past year! x

  3. Sometimes I think you come across very self absorbed. Just incase you didn't know that
