Here is how it works:
1) Choose your date and email before it gets booked up (I will be limiting numbers per date to allow for plenty of space for everyone to work).
2) Choose your card designs ASAP when the follow up email comes along. Everything will be cut and ready for you to stamp and assemble when you arrive.

Fee: $25 to make 20 cards with envelopes. You can choose up to 5 designs, four cards of each design. You can of course, choose to do al the same design or fewer designs up to groups of 5. If I have confused you, feel free to call!
Extra kits of four cards- all the same design can be purchased for $3 per kit.
You need only to bring your snail adhesive or some sort of tape runner. I always have extras on hand for purchase. All other adhesives, tools and supplies will be provided for each project.

The gift of time

Good morning,

I feel like I have to apologize as I have been unable to work for three weeks now. Some of you know, but for those of you that do not, my husband Larry, had a brain aneurysm three weeks ago. We have been very blessed and he is expected to recover fully, but it will take some time. We are very grateful that we live within an hour of the best hospitals in the world–in Boston. He spent three weeks at Beth Isreal.

Larry is home now, but I have fallen way behind. In between his doctor apptointments, physical therapy, etc, I will being playing catch up this week. Open orders will be placed and in before week’s end, I will be answering all those emails and working on my fall schedule- including rescheduling a few for this week. Please be patient, but do not be afraid to reach out if there is anything you need…..

Be on the lookout over the next few days for new class dates and exciting holiday gatherings.

Thanks again for your patience. Normally, I would be beside myself that I was so far behind, but the gift of time has been granted to my family and I am going to enjoy it rather then stress over the lack of it!

Hugs, Kathy

Early release


Here is my first creation using the stamp set Carols of Christmas. It is an early release and can be purchased starting today!!
This picture does not do this card justice– it is silver embossed with a sneak peek of this beautiful, silver edged ribbon coming this holiday season!


You can order this directly on my webpage or better yet, sign up for the Christmas Card Club and make this in August. It’s a great way to get a head start on your Holiday cards.



Hurry! A few spots left!



HURRY, it’s not too late! Only a few spots left-
Saturday, July 29th 1:00-5:00PM
Start early to enjoy the holiday season! At this event, you will make 8 cards, 2 of 4 different designs AND two gift card holders AND 10 gift tags in a box. You will have the ability to change out greetings or characters (I.e. Santa for Eskimo, etc) Unlike my holiday stamp a stacks, these card designs are preset, much like attending a class.

Holiday snacks and refreshments will be served.
PLEASE RSVP no later than July 25th to reserve your spot. Class fee will include a Bonus Coupon for future Christmas Stamp A Stacks or Christmas Card Club.


I am sorry I do not have any great photos to post. I was so busy that I forgot to take some, but I am overwhelmed with the generosity of all who come out to support my Catalog with a Cause event. The amount of donations is incredible. There are boxes upon boxes upon bages of donations and envelopes full of cash and checks to be totaled.

I am sorry that it was standing room only, literally. When I do the next event of this type I will add an additional room to work in or choose a different venue.

I am so grateful that all of you are in my life! When I started this little venture several years ago, I had no idea the incredible people I would meet or the wonderful friendships I would forge. You all are the best part of what I do. So, I humbly say THANK YOU! We did a great thing last night!!

I would like to thank Christina Grover for her endless hours in helping to prep for this event. I could not have done it without you. I also want to thank Shannon Berube who came to support my event and wound up playing hostess all night serving up wine and passing yummy treats around. I love you!

I will post an update in the days to come with the totals, but in the meantime, does anyone have a UHaul I can borrow to get all this product to the food pantry and the pet shelter?



These ARE NOT real daisies. Aren’t they great? They are made with the new daisy punch found in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.

To make each one, I punched two daisies, attached them in the middle. I used a bone folder to curl the petals a bit and added a new glimmer dot. Then, they were attached to a wire and inserted into this green, leafy plant.

Actually, I really need to give the credit to my helper, Christina. I may have designed this bouquet, but Christina did all the leg work! Thank you!!
