About Heather

Hi I'm Heather and I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I'm here to inspire you with ideas so you can make paper crafts in the convenience of your own home. Or wherever you want to paper craft!

Before and After

Standard

I told you Tuesday I was going to clean off my crafting board. I’m not sure what else to call it because it’s not a desk, it’s actually a tall kitchen island. And I love the height because I can stand and craft. I find when I’m standing I sometimes sway to the beat of the music I have playing or move my feet. Movement is good, I need more of it.

So anyway here is my before picture of my crafting board. Ugh it stressed me out to no end to have it messy. Granted messy shows I’m being creative but to actually create I need to start with clean. I may be a little weird. (a little?!)


And here it is now. Ready to be used. When I walk into the room the clean surface calls my name, asking me to make a new mess. I create, I get messy. True statement!


The only part that is not as clean as I like is my tin holder. I’m still trying to work out in my head what I want to use the bottom for instead of the catch all it is right now. And that’s my goal for today. Clean out the catch all. 

But first…..I think I’ll craft ūüėú 

Holiday preview!!

Stampin Up! Has released their holiday catalog videos, early!! Since paper is my obsession, here is the link to the designer series papers that will be available. You can follow along with the other videos. There are 15 total!! But unless you speak French or German, you will only need 13. O my goodness, the new holiday papers are wow! Enjoy!

Deck the Halls Tag Card

I wanted to make a more woodsy, masculine Christmas card. I saw one of the Artisan’s cards and it inspired me to make this one. This is a fun and easy card for you to make.
