My Newly released paper design!


It is finally here. Here is a paper design I came up with called Diane's Greetings. It is an all occasion greeting sheet that is perfect for card makers. It has has been published and is shipping world wide. How exciting is that. I have been busy designing cards with the new paper. All my projects are being published in the newly released Pinecone Press Options kit. The new paper line printed by Pinecone Press
goes perfectly with my greeting sheet. I will be planning an all occasion card class soon so you can use the new paper.
I am starting to design another greeting sheet. This is one reason I have not had classes recently. So very sorry. I do miss all of you and miss the classes.
Let me know what you think.
I am also adding in some pictures of projects I have made. The cards have greetings inside to finish the card completly. You can see several more projects in the newly released Options Kit booklet. I will buy some kits and plan a class with it.
Thanks for your support. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Blessings, Diane

Get on Board the Love Train! Whooo! Whooo!

I had so much fun creating this LOVE train to fill with sweets. I took the Easter train blank from Pinecone Press and turned it into a Valentine train. The blank has a half circle attached on the side of the train so it makes it easy for you to attach the hearts.
The hearts were cut out with a Sizzix die. The paper and LOVE message is from our new "Love You" paper line.
Cut strips of paper 1-1/8" X 12". Wrap strip around box and crease along the corners. Adhere paper to box.
To attach the trains together,I cut a piece of chipboard 1/2" by about 5" in length. I covered it with red cardstock. Attach this strip to the bottom of the train with red line tape. Punch a small hole through end of this strip and attach two trains with a brad.
The wheels are decorated with cardstock and a brad attached for decoration. Glue the wheels to the box train as shown.
The engine is a milk carton box pattern. Click Here for pattern.
Don't forget to fill train cars with some yummy candy for your sweetheart.
Let me know what you think.
Blessings, Diane


I am so exscited and proud of Stampin' Up!. They are a company that truly cares about people.

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. To help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this devastating earthquake, Stampin′ Up! will set aside $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and donate it to the American Red Cross. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Help to make a difference. Order your I {Heart} Hearts stamp set today!
Contact me to place your order.

Who doesn't {heart} hearts? Especially the hearts in this delightful set. You'll love them even more when you discover they coordinate with our heart punches! Available in both wood-mount and clear-mount.

In addition to donating a portion of sales, Stampin Up bought supplies for 5,000 hygiene kits to be sent. Employees gathered in the Distribution Center at Stampin' Up!, giving their own time to pack the hygiene kits to be sent to Haiti. What was scheduled to take several days was done in one day, thanks to the compassion and commitment from Stampin' Up! Employees.
