Stampin' Up! In Bloom Quick and Easy Birthday Card

Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation when we need a card that can be made rapidly without sacrificing the quality of a one-of-a-kind, handmade card. On top of that, we may need a stack of cards we can make and have on hand. The Stampin' Up! In Bloom Stamp Set is the perfect go-to choice to create beautiful cards quickly and easily.

YouTube Videos Coming Mid-April 2021

We all love watching our favorite video content on YouTube and if you're anything like me, you have quite a few crafters that you watch regularly. I hope that I become one of your favorites.

My YouTube channel is up and I'm collecting followers in advance of my first video publication happening the week of April 12th, 2021. Please consider subscribing and hitting the notifications bell so you're one of the first viewers to welcome me into the YouTube demonstration and tutorial world. If the notifications bother you, by all means turn them off...but consider keeping them on for the month of April as I'm more likely to go live or post premiere videos (with live chat w/me) outside a regular schedule. =)

It would be great to hear from you on any topic that's on your mind.
