About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

A Guy Thing

Ever need a card in a hurry for a GUY?  Well, from time to time I need a guy card, but that is my biggest mental block for creativity.  Especially in a hurry.  So I decided that the best thing to do is make a few blank cards that I could use for many of life's events and customize them with a sentiment.  So for any of my fishermen friends and relatives, here it is!  The only thing I did that was out of the norm was that I inked my Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder with Distress Brushed Corduroy.  That helped darken the debossed area to give it more depth.  I also stamped the inside of the card.  I always love it when people do that, but seldom think of it myself.  Hope you like it.

  1. Love how you inked your embossing folder, it really adds dimension to the woodgrain. Stamping on the inside of the card is a nice touch! You really hooked this one!!
