Hi Friends! I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I posted on my blog! I normally post Monday through Friday, but honestly, I have found this summer to be SO BUSY! Despite the ‘crazy’ world situation, I’ve been enjoying our summer immensely. Right now I’m in full force with my garden and canning.
This weekend I plan on finishing my beets (pickles and relish) and I’ve got more cucumbers to use too. I’ve already made all my pickles, so I’m not sure yet what I’m going to turn those into! My carrots and zucchinis are ready to can too.
Years ago I was a given a recipe for Zucchini Salsa from a co-worker friend, so I’m going to make a batch of that.Click on the recipe tab at the top of the page if you’re looking for something new to try with your zucchinis this summer – this salsa is super yummy! I also received a dehydrator for my birthday, which I’m super excited about. The last one I had was so well used that I burnt out the motor and hadn’t replaced it, so it’s been years since I had one. I’m thinking I may dehydrate the carrots, then we can enjoy them in soups and stews over winter. Our apple trees are LOADED this year so I’m going to make a whack of apple butter and maybe some crabapple jelly(which will be ideal for some Christmas gifts). So you, see, I’ve been going full tilt! I haven’t even mentioned the seven cords of wood we’re about to start blocking, splitting and stacking LOL. Oh well. I’ll “rest” during winter. I HAVE been finding time to STAMP though! I’m just finishing up my “Dove of Hope” tutorials for my new online class – I’ve the filming to do yet and then I’ll be able to share it with everyone. I’ve been having so much FUN designing for this class! Yesterday I made this card, using the sample in the catalogue for my inspiration…
I used the “Round of Applause” set and the “Front Flap” fun fold for this card and filmed the process for my newest video.
In my demonstration, I also show how I put the labels on my new cling-mount stamp sets, as many new stampers aren’t sure how to do this. So I hope you enjoy my newest video and card design!
- Petal Pink card stock: 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Whisper White card stock: 2 3/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
A couple of years ago I made another card using the “Front Flap Fold”, which I made differently than in the video I’m sharing with you today. To see it, click HERE.
I’m HAWAII bound!!!
I’m so excited to share that earlier this week I earned Stampin’ Up!’s Grand Vacation to Maui in 2021! I worked so hard this past year to earn this trip and I absolutely could NOT have earned it without my incredible, amazing customers and “Serene Stampers” team! I am beyond GRATEFUL and blessed for each and every one of YOU! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! xoxo
Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
