My Stampin' Up! Classes

A Fitting Occasion - thanks so much!

These are a couple of the thank-you cards I made to put into my customers' orders this week. The card base is River Rock that's been punched on one side with the Scallop Trim Borner punch, with a layer of Neutral (River Rock) dsp on top. I stamped the "thanks so much" in Early Espresso and used the 1" circle punch for it. I stamped the scissors in Cherry Cobbler and hand-cut them, adding a sliver of dimensional. I think the little stamps in A Fitting Occasion are so cute!

If you'd like to place an order, you're welcome to go through my Online Store at

If you're still here, I'll share this vintage silverplate Mayell (Made in England) jam dish with hanging spoon I found at a garage sale yesterday for a couple of bucks. My bestie, Kim, and I drove all over the county finding lots of treasures - big and small. We had a ball! Kim took home the big treasures, while I took home the small ones. Right now my dish is holding Monopoly pieces from about five sets. I saw so many cool ideas with Monopoly on Pinterest - making a ring with a green, wooden house (I have those!), making a box with the board, or a journal cover with the board, covering a lampshade with the money. So many ideas, so little time!
Here are the thimble and iron. I've got lots of those! I love the metal pieces. I'd love to hear any ideas you might have for Monopoly and all of the assorted parts!
