Janie's Girls Stamps 2

Hi, everyone! This week’s post is a “Missing You” card brought to you by…Janie’s Girls Stamps (super cute), the beautiful Noted Paper Pack, and awesome washi tape! I colored the image to match the red/tan color scheme of the card–that’s the great thing about the Spectrum Noir pens, you can color anything to match anything! I also love the red washi tapes–you can use them in tons of ways, but the best thing is that they are repositionable, so you don’t have to worry about placing perfectly the first time. I hope you all enjoy this quick and simple card!

Layered Labels Dies & Happy Days

Layered Labels Dies & Happy Days 1

Layered Labels Dies & Happy Days 3

Layered Labels Dies & Happy Days 4

Hello, All! Today’s card is springy and fun, with a bit of pizazz added by the red hot motorcycle on the front! I think this would be a perfect kid’s card–the colors are sure to make anyone smile. Here I combine the flashy motorcycle with the fun Happy Days Paper Pack. Add to that the very, very versatile 6 Layered Labels & 2 Swirls Cutting Dies, a little sparkle from the Gold Jewel Border Dazzles, and you’re all set to go! This card is also a quick make, so you still have time to go out and enjoy the sunshine (if you have it)!

Gumdrop Artful Card Kit & More

Gumdrop Artful Card Kit 1

Gumdrop Artful Card Kit 2

Hello there! Today I have a very busy card–hopefully not too busy for you though! I had to combine a lot of products to create this effect. There are many layers to this card, thanks to the acetate overlay and the elements from the Gumdrop Artful Card Kit, plus great accents from Metallic Gold paper and the Paper Patchwork 2 Template! The love theme today is personally meaningful for me (happy anniversary to my husband!) and could be converted to a custom greeting, thanks to the blanks on the cut outs in the ACK (Artful Card Kit). Enjoy! :)

Father’s Day Card

Father's Day Card 1

Father's Day Card 2

Father's Day Card 3

Hello, all! Today’s video is Father’s Day themed, since it’s coming up here in about 2 weeks! I love the funky Mustache & Glasses stamps. You definitely don’t have to use them just for Father’s Day. I am, just because my father just happens to have a mustache and glasses. This card features the juxtaposition of the fun and funky Rad Dad Dazzles & Mustache stamp, and the more distressed/weather look of the Homeward Bound papers and Embellies. I hope you enjoy it! An added plus: This card is a quick make, only takes about 20 minutes! Happy (early) Father’s Day to all those dads out there!

Iris Folding Owl Card 3

Iris Folding Owl Card 4

This week’s card is the first iris folding card I’ve done on the blog. The technique is a bit time-consuming, but the overall effect is worth it. Most people looking at this type of card for the first time say “Whoa, how did you do that?” So for an extra special wow factor, try out iris folding! I believe it’s called iris folding after the iris of an eye. Enjoy, and thanks for sticking with me!

Poor Baby

This might be your facial expression when you see there’s no video up yet…haha

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get a video done yet this week–I promise it’s coming, probably in the next couple of days. I’ve been overwhelmingly busy the past several days…being a mom, working on more Webisode projects (shhh… it’s not airing until next month!) and also being out of town for Memorial Day weekend (and having to lug my craft supplies along). I hope you all had a more relaxing time than me! Anyways, I hope you’ll forgive me and I look forward to getting everything done so you can enjoy another piece of “creative inspiration.” By the way, Happy Memorial Day (belated)!

Hi all, sorry for the delay–very busy here, plus my little one is teething badly. This week I’m demonstrating how you can make four fabulous mini cards using a single standard (5″ x 6.5″) blank card. I’ve done this once before on the blog, but in case you missed it, here it is again! This time I’m showing off some new products such as the Rhapsody Paper Pack and Embellies, cute Lightbulb and Pocketwatch stamps, and fun accessories like Peacock specialty paper and 2 sets of Bling. Lots to love here! Thanks so much for sticking with me and following my blog! Here’s to another crafty Monday!

Butterflies Cutting Dies

Butteflies Dies Card 1

Butteflies Dies Card 3

Butteflies Dies Card 2

Hello, everyone! Today’s card has a fun, fluttery, delicate look. And, did I mention bling? You might not have though of using pearls and rhinestones together, but I think it does work on this card. The 6×6 Rosemary & Thyme Paper Pack works beautifully with the cutting dies, and I love all the petite patterns. I think I just like little things in general. Good things come in small packages! These Butterflies dies are awesome, and you can use them in so many ways! I used 3 out of the 5 dies on this card, and blinged up the large center butterfly for a big impact! I hope you all enjoy!

The product bundle is up and ready! (link) Yay! (updated 4/30, 2:12PM EST)

Sorry for the delay, everyone! By the way, if you haven’t checked it out yet, please go see the Week of Webisodes going on this week–it’s called “Ann’s First Look” and Paulette and Gail showcase projects that I made (many hours of hard work went into those!)–I hope you like them! If you missed a day or two, all of them are available if you click on the Webisode & Gallery Archive.

Okay, back to today…it’s the end of April now, and coming up on May 3rd is National Scrapbooking Day! Just another excuse to pull out the craft stash and make something pretty! I’m using the “Susan’s Flowers” Color Me Ebony Paper Pack (6 papers included), Mother’s Day Dazzles, and Design Tool Kit #5. The colored cardstock is from the Pearlescent Cardstock pack. To color the background, I used the Blue Set of the (amazing, awesome) Gelatos. So Lovely. See how easy these are to use! I love ‘em so much I bought the full 28-color Gelatos Gift Set (a fabulous gift idea for anyone even mildly artistic. Or yourself). Alright, enough typing, here’s the video!
