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!!!!

Dumpster Diving for a Valentine Card

Hi All!  Today I'm going to tell you about me recent "Dumpster Dive".   I'm not much at recycling things, so this is pretty new to me.  I was working on doing a couple more February ATC's from Lou Ann's ATC Class and I noticed how cool the cherub looked with the red behind the waste of the Tim Holtz Deco Sheets.  I was going to make 2 more Valentine cards for Keith & Amy and Donnie & Jerika, so I thought I'd try to use them.  I also thought I'd use the little heart that was punched out to make an opening in the shaker part of the card. I used my Signo Uni-ball White Pen to write XOXO and a little curved line to give it some dimension.

I used some old 6x6 Echo Park Valentine paper that had a few more pieces in the pack.  Finally I used my Versa-fine Onyx Black Ink (theVERY best ink for stamping sentiments) and Lawn Fawn's Happy Everything Stamps.  This stamp set has so many occasions, it's a must have.  And I love the font!

Tada!!!!!!  My finished card.
