I held off on creating the alternatives until I was able to raid Libby's stash. Even after the raid, I felt a bit limited of course, but I managed to triple my completed card stash from 2 to 6 completed cards and 5 of them are Birthday cards.

Certainly in my crafting world I have learned a...

Ok my fellow crafters, I know you are asking why on earth is this horse video on a crafters blog. Prior to becoming an avid full time crafter and Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I was a horsemen and active competitor in the horseback riding discipline called "reining".

Tonight I processed two Paper Pumpkin videos. I had to verify that I will be able to create the alternatives (I needed to be...

I've done some research, joined a couple of planner groups and am making this a a fun way to stay organized.
