Twin Layouts

I used the same layout for these two cards but made them completely different with the color and picture choices.  I really like them both!

Little Flower Boxes

I love using little flowers on cards.  I made these two cards exactly the same just with different background paper- which one do you like better?

The girl I babysit turned 6 and she was having a mermaid themed birthday party, so I wanted to make her a mermaid card.  Using punches this is what I created!

It sure has been a buggy summer here- especially mosquitoes!  But this card is made of cute bugs and bright colors- which I like!

Patchwork Purse

I love patchwork things, so I wanted to make a patchwork purse!  I like messenger style bags and think they keep everything neat inside so that is what I made!  I sewed a lot of little squares together but I love how it turned out and think it is super cute and 'me!'

Here to There

This fall I will be starting student teaching and I know this process will not be easy.  After meeting with my site supervisor I was inspired to make something to remind me of some of the things I will need to get from 'here' to 'there.'  I always like to have little cute reminders of important thoughts/ideas to look at and keep me motivated!

Birthday CASE

I CASED this card from Renee Cobur, using the Apple Blossoms stamp set.  I like how the torn edges give it some character.  I changed the colors to Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, and So Saffron.  The  sentiment is from 'So Happy for You.'  

Thanks for looking!

Guest Demonstrator Cards


I went home this weekend and my sister asked me to be the guest demonstrator at her $5 Friday Card Class!  I don't demonstrate very often, so I was excited to be able to (Thanks Rochelle!). The group had requested a young boy card and a girly/mothers day card.  So this is what I came up with to demonstrate!

Ice Cream!

After I started playing with the colors for this week's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #36 it made me think of ice cream.  I punched flowers out of Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, and Peach Parfait to create the ice cream.  The cone is hand cut from Creamy Carmel cardstock.  On the Whisper White background I added white polka dots by punching out dots and gluing them on to add a subtle background.  The sentiment is from the FYI stampset.  To finish it off I added Pretty in Pink ribbon and a couple rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by!

CCMC 143 Butterfly Celebrate

I made a girly, springy card for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge



It turned out that pretty much everything I used is non-current!  The butterflies and greeting is from the Just Celebrate stamp set.  I colored in the butterflies with Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, and So Saffron.  Thanks for looking!

I wanted to do something crafty today, but didn't know what to make, so I made a pillow!  I just made up the pattern as a went along- I love patchwork style stuff.  It was fun to make and turned out fun looking!

Classy Thank You

   I liked how simple the colors in the Stampin' Celebration Challenge were this week.  I made a very simple, but somewhat classy card to go with them.  I used a Basic Black base and put a piece of Whisper White embossed with Polka Dots and cut out flowers from the Big Shot.  The tag punch is stamped with 'thank you' from the Garden Greetings stamp set.

Our Purple Door!!

My husband and I wanted to paint our front door and this is what we decided on...

I didn't want typical door decor for our new door, so I made my own.  I attached three mini wreaths to the long sticks and tied random fun colored ribbon around the wreathes. 

Our door isn't boring any more and we love it!!!

Criss Cross Thanks

I haven't made a Criss Cross card in awhile and I wanted to do something different, so I used the Greenhouse Gala DSP.  The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie and the red accents are Real Red.  I added Chocolate Chip ribbon and a red circle with a Pumpkin Pie button as the belly band.  The 'thanks' came from the stamp set So Happy for You. 

Thanks for looking!

Good Friend Thank You

Here's a Thank You card I made using the bird from the Good Friends stamp set.  I stamped the bird in Chocolate Chip and cut it out and placed it on a 2 1/2" circle in Baja Breeze.  I used some Old Olive DSP as the background and finished it off with punched holes and squinched Whisper White ribbon.  
Hope you like it!

Flower Thanks

This week's ColourQ challenge had some fun colors to work with!  I really liked working with black and white and the contrasting colors.  The colors made me think of tropical flowers.  So this is what I made!

   I punched the flowers out of the 5-Petal punch using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Baja Breeze (I didn't have any Cool Caribbean...).  I crumpled the flowers and glued them onto a piece of Whisper White and added a black dot for the centers.  I cut three thin stripes of Whisper White and layered it with the 'thanks' from 'Outlined for Fun.' 

Thanks for looking!

Tulips for a Friend

I liked the mix of colors this week at ColourQ...this is what I did with them!

These were great colors to make flowers with, so I made some tulips out of the Tangerine Tango using the Owl Punch and outlined them with Early Espresso dots.  The Pear Pizzazz leafs were made from the wing in the bird punch.  The Early Espresso rectangles were filled with textured Bordering Blue paper.  

Thanks for looking!

Simple Girly Purse

Yeah!  I finally sewed my first purse that turned out well all the way around!  I had a lot of fun making it and it was really easy.  The directions from Ric-Rac were great and easy to follow (which definitely helped!).

Inside-sorry it's blurry.

 The inside has a 
 pocket and a 
magnetic snap.  I made a flower 
pin for the front to decorate it. 


I love how it turned out and I am excited to use it!

Thanks for looking!
