There's A Card Thursday - November 28, 2013 - Santa's List Christmas Invitation

Happy Thanksgiving,

There are so many things I have to be Thankful for this year.  My Family, my health, my friends both new and old, and just everything in my life.  I hope you all have some things in your life you are thankful for.  Don is cooking a ham this year and I can't wait for it.  I love ham.  We did our baking yesterday, Don made his pumpkin pie, I made Raspberry Scones, Cranberry Muffins, and a Fresh Berry Tart. That is the most I have baked or even cooked in awhile.

Today on There's A card Thursday I would like to show you how to do a Christmas Invite using the Stamp Set Santa's List.


This card is also easy to adapt to just a Christmas card by changing the saying you punch out with the Decorative  Label Punch.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Grandmas' Rocking Chair - November 24, 2013 - Metallic Encore Stamping Pads

Grandma's Rocking Chair Product Review - Metallic Encore Pads (Gold and Silver)

I just love the Gold and Silver Encore Pads.  Why? Well there are several reasons.

1.  I love the colors.  Yes you can get the Silver color with Basic Gray and some glimmer Paint but it does not look the same and it is hard to do.  The Silver I think is my favorite, but I do love the Gold also.

2. I love the feel of it when you stamp it.  I know that sounds strange, but it has a soft cushy feeling when you stamp.

3.  I love how it covers. It is almost like our Craft Pads use to be but a little different as it seems to cover but still sink in.

4.  It is Acid Free so you can use it on scrapbooks.

Only thing I have that I don't like and I bet those of you that know me know what it is.  I am not very patient so I hate when it takes awhile to dry.  Unless you use the heat gun it does take awhile to dry and you can smear it.  Also gets all over your hands. But other than that I love it.  Here are a few of the cards I have use them on.



I used Gold On this one.  On the Very Vanilla I I used Pretty Print and then ran the Gold over it just made it pop.

This one I used the Silver on the small Snowflake I really love it on it.

I did this one the same as the above with the Gold and swiping it over the embossed Pretty print.

This is one of the ones I used a lot of the Silver on and it got allover my hands.  But I still loved using it  I love how it looks. 

Here are the Details
Price: $9.95
Get on top of the metallic trend with beautiful silver stamped images. Acid free.

Price: $9.95
Everything looks richer in gold! Create gold stamped images with the Gold Metallic Encore Pad. Acid free.

Right now with the Holiday Sale they are on Sale both for $15.92

Price: $19.90 $15.92
Includes: Gold Metallic Encore Pad and Silver Metallic Encore Pad

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - November 19, 2013 - Boxes of all sizes with the Envelope Punch Board.

Good morning,

Do you have the Envelope Punch Board? Do you like making your own envelopes?  Do you think that is all the Envelope Punch Board Does?  Today I will be showing you how to make boxes for any of the 66 size envelopes. Yup 66 and more size boxes.


These are just a few of the boxes you can make. 

The Secret is really simple say you would like to make a box for 4x4 cards, and you would like it an inch deep. Look up the paper size for the envelope for a 4x4 card. which is 6 7/8 x 6 7/8 Score at 3 1/2. So to make a box to fit those cards and envelope and about 1" deep you will need to add an inch and score a second line at 4 1/2.  paper size 7 7/8 x 7 7/8 score at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.

After trying to find box instructions for a few different sizes, it hit me.  Yes I know my daughter says I am not to bright (she is 17, so knows more than anyone else), but I was elated when it came to me.

It may be easier to understand on the video.  I do three different sizes on the video and try to explain it in more detail.

Here are the details on the envelope punch board.
Envelope Punch Board133774
Price$19.95
Why go with boring, white, normal-sized envelopes when you can use colorful paper to create everything from itty bitty to long and skinny? Our creativity-boosting Envelope Punch Board makes it easy to customize envelopes in up to 66 different sizes!

Envelope Punch Board includes:
* An easy-to-use chart to create up to 66 different envelope sizes (including standard sizes). The measurements are provided both in inches and centimeters.
* A scoring tool in a convenient storage slot.
* Two punches designed right into the tool itself: one to make the envelope and one to round its corners.
