Congrats! Balloons

Happy Saturday!  Happy three day weekend!  This is one of the few holidays that my hubby gets off, so that makes me extra happy!!  :)  While I plan to spend lots of time with him this weekend, I also have plans tonight to get together with a girlfriend for crafting and pizza!

I recently got the Sweet Day collection from Echo Park and made a few cards with it earlier this week.  This is one of those cards.  I love the muted colors in this collection. It’s all very warm and fuzzy to me.  Happy sigh…

Hello and welcome to Wednesday!  I don’t have much to say so I’ll just get right along to the card I’m sharing today.  I got some Amy Tangerine papers recently and whipped this card up last week.  It came together very quickly – I love these kinds of cards!!  Well that’s it for me today.  I hope you’re having a great week!!  :)

My Cup of Tea

Hello and happy Monday!  It’s been a couple of days since I shared something new, so I thought I’d hop on here and blog something quickly!  I’m all about the quick today.  :)

I spent today at a friend’s house papercrafting and I made a layout.  Yep, you heard right – I scrapbooked!  I still need to do some embellishing but the overall layout is done and I must say I really like how it’s turning out.

I have another card to share today using more of Claudine Hellmuth’s 3D Pop Art Stickers available exclusively on HSN.  To help pull the card together I used some Lawn Fawn stamps.  I really love how this card turned out!

I hope you are having a great start to your week!  I know I am!!  :)

Hi There, Spring!

Happy Friday afternoon!  I’ve had a crazy productive crafty week so I’m a little sad we’re heading into the weekend already.  I hope my crafting streak continues through to next week.  That would rock!!  Most are for publication calls so nothing I can show, but I did make a simple spring card using Mint Motif/Lawn Fawn stamps and some Claudine Hellmuth chipboard.

Supplies used
Stamps: i {heart} papers Mint Motif (Beyond Borders); Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments)
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white, aqua mist)
Ink: Jenni Bowlin (fountain pen)
Accessories: chipboard (Claudine Hellmuth Sweet Treats)

Friday Night Lights

TGIF, right?  My plans for this weekend include sleeping in, napping and maybe doing a little something productive.  Or maybe not…!  Either way, it will include a whole lot of crafting!  I seem to have found some mojo while walking the aisles of CHA so I’m going to take advantage and use it while I got it!

For my card I’ve used Webster’s Pages Sunday Picnic patterned paper and one of the matching journaling cards.  A couple buttons,  some bright pink ribbon and it’s finished off with a Lawn Fawn sentiment (Sophie’s Sentiments).  This is one of my favorite layouts.  I haven’t used it in a while and all these pieces just fit, so here we are!

I Love Snow…I Mean, You

The night of Christmas Eve I sat down to specifically make a Christmas card to share on my blog for Christmas day.  This is the card I made.  Which didn’t really work as it’s not a Christmas card at all!  The Snow Days collection from Pink Paislee makes a perfect Valentine’s Day card.  I used my sewing machine to stitch a black line through “snow” and used stamps to turn it into “you”.

I photographed this at a weird angle.  It’s pretty straight on which I really dislike but I’ve got to get busy in the kitchen, so no time for a re-shoot!

Wedding Wishes

Here is a card I made for a pub call a long time ago that I never bothered to submit!  I think I lost track of time and ended up missing the deadline – oops!!  The theme was wedding (I think?)…
