I took a box of supplies on our camping trip to the eastern Sierras. I could have made a dozen different cards with the supplies I brought. I think it’s fun to stamp on the go… unless it gets windy! I made this card for my friend Martha who has a birthday the day this posted.

Make your own Basic Tool Kit to go

I don’t have room to start stamping! This link shows how I’ve packed a card base and layers of every color of card stock, the tool kit, blocks, the Basic Tool Kit, a few stamp sets and 20 stamp pads into just two small boxes. It also has the cutting plan to get a card base, a large layer, and two small layers from a sheet of card stock.


When my husband returned to our campsite after fishing, he took this picture of my camp stamp studio. He thought it was funny to see the hatchet there close at hand. No cards were actually harmed by the hatchet. And yes, my little box is nice and organized, but as soon as I start working I have stuff all over the table.

Shelly Godby shared a checkbook cover that got me thinking. I used Paisleys & Posies to stamp a cover for a calendar which slips into those checkbook covers. The calendar I made with regulars stamping group has their birthdays, my planned Paper Play dates, the dates for the Stampin’ Up! catalogs and OnStage events, the usual holidays, and also some fun dates like International Lefthander’s Day and National Go Barefoot Day. I’m giving calendars to my family with all their birthdays too. Here’s a link for the 2017 Pocket Calendar  and 2018 Pocket Calendar insert  with no birthdays. You could certainly print one copy, write in your special days, and copy them for your friends and family.

20151111_113827_resizedStamping on the go again. I’m in San Diego waiting eagerly Saturday’s OnStage, a mini convention. I planned to record this video creating a baby card with my Getting Started supplies, but somehow I managed to leave both Sprinkles of Life and the stamps from the Watercolor Wishes kit at home! I did have the supplies for my Christmas cards with me. Somehow I think it works.

20150804_122709Last week I posted a card created by my 8 year old grandson.  This week the guest designer is my 10 year old granddaughter. What with all the adventures and the kids and the dogs running around the house when we were home, I just knew I would not be able to find a quiet time for filming videos. So I decided to try videos with the kids creating cards. We all had so much fun! I hope you enjoy watching too.

We looked through my supplies with Evernote. If you want to know more about that, click here.
