The Gemini is coming to HSN!!



Hello friends!
Great news! The Gemini machine is coming to HSN!! Sara Davies of Crafter's Companion will be there showing you all the amazing things you can do with this machine. I have to confess something, I haven't been blogging much because I got an injury on my right shoulder and hand while doing yard work, yes, I think I worked too hard, and since I have this machine already (Yes, I am very lucky and blessed)  I've been suing with no problems, especially no handles, so you can die-cut and emboss without using your hands.

Let me show you a project I made with the Gemini (which includes dies and more when you buy it), I created a couple of cute mini tags! Perfect for special occasions.


What's in your Gemini Machine

More projects coming soon!!
Have a fantastic day!

Get Well Soon

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday to you. Today I have a special card requested by my husband for one of his co-workers. Last week he asked me for a Get well card at 9:30 pm, of course I said I can make one but he wanted one right away, sadly I was too tired and it was too late to craft (at least for me), so next day I made this card for the officer who will be out of duty for awhile. That's why the saying inside {wink, wink} again requested by my husband.

Since I didn't have any stamp with that saying I used my Concord & 9th stamps "Sophisticated Script Uppercase and Lowercase" and I love it! This card is pretty easy to make, I call it "Back to basics"
For the front I used my Wood Grain embossing folder on a piece of cream cardstock and then sponged the piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
