Peek-a-boo: I’m Here for You

Here for You

We’ve all been in a place where we needed a friend and hopefully you’ve been there for a friend who has needed a friend and that friend was you. Did you know that sending someone a handwritten card provides more comfort that a text?  Try it sometime. =)

Here for you

The Details:

  • Another Brick in the Wall. I love that old song!  But hey, want to make the Brick Wall embossing folder different? Simply trim a brick out and stamp an image that will be seen through it.  How easy is that?
  • Give the Brick Wall an Old Look.  You can achieve a speckled look and give the wall some flare with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. It’s perfect and it does’t have to be perfect. 
  • Create a Vistor. Snip out another little creature on the front side of the wall so the one stuck behind the wall isn’t so lonely. LOL.  I stamped only one hedgehog from the Love You lots set and snip it and if you use a Stampin’ Dimensional it’ll look like it’s truly standing near the wall. I love it!!!

You’re the Best Pals Paper Arts #254

Thank You

I thought I had a style for card-making, but today I realize I don’t!  HA!  I march to the beat of my own drum and I love it.  Like everything else, there are trends in what we do, but guess what!?  I don’t follow the crowds.  Is it a bad thing?  I dunno.  What I do know is that I do what I love and I love what I do.  So much so that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do it in.  What do you love to do?

PPA 254

Today card is an inspiration from the weekly Pals Paper Arts Challenge #254.  Not only am I a participant, but I’m a team member and it’s one of the best projects I look love to participate in.  What about you?

Thank You

I took a simple approach to this card by adding a matt to the Cherry on Top Desires Series Paperstack.  What can I say, I’m easy…LoL.

Thank You


  • Add Candy Dots:  Candy dots is the cure-all for plain.  Once you’ve completed your masterpiece and you squint your eyes because it just doesn’t “feel” complete…break out with the candy dots!  They add that little umpth to any card to make it stand out just enough to make you happy.  How do you use candy dots?
  • Make an Envelope:  Not sure how to use a little extra paper?  Match the card colors to the envelope flap.  It’ll add a little sparkle and believe it or not when it’s received in the mail that little bit of color actually brightens the receiver’s day!  Well, I just made that up, but I know for a fact there are studies out there about colors and the influence they have on the human mood.

NO CONTACT – What it really means.  When you select “No Contact” when you place your on-line order with me it literally means, “Don’t tell Maggie I placed an order.”  This is a bummer for me because I can’t show you my gratitude for your order or send you product samples because I have no idea who you are.  When placing your order will you (pretty please) check the box that says, “YES, allow my demonstrator to contact me with order updates and other important information.”  Please know that I will never send you junk mail. Please send me a note if you have any questions.  I truly appreciate your business no matter how big or small it is very much appreciated.

Retired Product Community.  Are you looking for a retired stamp set and haven’t had luck finding it?  Maybe you can find what you’re looking for in a Facebook group I created just for this purpose.
