    Stamp Ink Paper, design challenge #185: Clean & Simple Valentine

    The Stamp Ink Paper design team is at it again with a new challenge for you this week; Clean & Simple Valentine.  As many of you know, I don’t do “clean & simple” very well, so this was quite the challenge for me as well.  Click HERE for the design challenge guidelines and to find inspo from other Design Team members. Then be sure to post your entry! Alright, so…. Clean & Simple. I gave it a go and it’s still probably a little more (busy) than most Clean & Simple designs, but I just can’t stop layering and embellishing! If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s…

    Guys, I can’t say it enough… SALE-A-BRATION has some pretty amazing offerings!! And hello… if it’s FREE, it’s for me!! These are definitely not  workshop-worthy cards.

    Tags & Tidings Is For Cards Too!

    Last week I realized that I had purchased 2 “Tags & Tidings” bundles from Stampin Up!. (guess that means I reallyREALLY love this set!!) But what do I need 2 for?? -since sharing is caring, I decided to do a give-a-way on Facebook.  So the stage was set, I asked you all to comment on any previous project I had done and why it was your favorite. That’s all. I chose Dawn to be the receiver of this gift (random dot org actually chose Dawn:) Though she had never stamped before,  she told me that she was into scrap-booking. -Well, that’s still paper crafting to me 🙂 We decided that…

    All The Good Things

    Hiya! And so you’re a little confused. I was using some other version of a blog with a wierd URL… I know, I know! Anyhow, now I own the rights to Chase And Main and this will forever be my home. Hang in there while I upload content and make this website jazzy. I’m excited to be in my new home at Chase And Main dot com but it’s going to take some getting used to. I’m not a tech-y person and generally computers aren’t my friend. I’ll learn along the way and I hope you come back often to see what I’ve been up to. In the meantime, you’re…
