“Hearts a Flutter” Card

You’re going to love the potential that lies in the “Hearts a Flutter” Bundle!  That’s right…….stamps, Framelits, and all sorts of possibilities.  It’s not JUST for Valentine’s, but when paired with the More Amore Designer Series Papers, you have a lovely combo! Notice the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, also.  One of them is the newest to join the “family” and it is the Honeycomb design, featured in our new Spring Catalog. The one below is…

“Two by Two” Baby Girl Card

One of my dear friends just had a baby girl!  After THREE boys, she finally received the “sugar and spice” in her house!  This will be one special little girl — loved and protected by many — and spoiled rotten!  I couldn’t wait to sit down last week and make her a sweet little girl card.  The ingredients had to include lace, pearls, buttons, and bows — and the colors had to be pink and…

Grateful for so many things…

During this week of Thanksgiving, I am especially mindful of life’s many blessings.  That doesn’t mean that my life is perfect, and that I have no trials.  In face, this year has brought some of the biggest trials I have personally ever experienced.  Thanksgiving in my heart means that I will be thankful in ALL circumstances and grateful for many blessings, even when my circumstances are not ideal.  I know too many people who are…

For the Birds {Part 2}

I’m sorry I haven’t had time to post the rest of the cards — I guess I left you hangin’ a little bit!  I’ve been super duper busy with a variety of things, and my college girls arrived home tonight!  I am enjoying my new job, but it means that I have to prioritize things a little differently in the evenings, and sometimes I get time to blog, and sometimes I don’t.  I am committed…

“Thanks for Your Support” for Jan

My sweet friend, Jan, has had cancer for about 7 years.  She has had many ups and downs, and she has been such an inspiration to me.  She recently had a large number of friends who helped support her in so many ways with their participation at Relay for Life.   Jan had a deep desire to make Thank You cards for all the friends who have walked along this journey with her and specifically those who recently helped at…

Christmas Card(s) #4

This is first of a set of gift enclosure cards that I made for a friend.  These 3×3 cards were so fun to make.  Their tiny little size makes them come together in a flash, and they make such a sweet little gift set.  These little cards come from one of the sheets of Designer Series Paper in the Snow Festival Paper Pack.  Instead of having one single pattern design, this one piece of paper…

Christmas Card #3

Christmas Card #3 was inspired by a card found on THIS blog.  I haven’t been to this blog before, but she has some nice projects that I enjoyed looking at.   I love finding things I like online and casing them.  I’ve decided I’m pretty decent at executing projects……I find what I like and make it work for me!  This card uses some ribbon scraps to make a fun little Christmas tree. What a nice way to use…

Christmas Card #2

Here’s another quick and easy card!  I love the home-spun feel of our new felt tags.  These can be found in the Holiday Catalog (p.12) with 8 felt pieces in a package for $4.95.  You can tie these directly onto a package, or gift bag.   I used a few Glue Dots to add them to this card — and voila!  A beautiful card all ready to go! I used the Bird Builder Punch to add green…

Christmas Card #1

I hope that you are beginning to think about Christmas…..cards, gift items, tags, baked goods, and the list goes on.   Spending time with family and friends is #1 on my list………but my NEXT favorite thing about the holidays is the crafting (and the cooking).  I love making things for friends and seeing their reaction when they discover that I spent time creating it JUST FOR THEM!  They love and admire the time that I put…
