Hello Friends! If you are reading this, then thanks for coming back to my blog after it has been down for 3-4 days while Typepad fought off some nasty Hackers. I have been blogging with Typepad since 2006 and my blog has never been down for more than an hour until this week! I do think that is a really good record but boy, its hard to be patient especially when you aren't really a techy kinda person and don't understand what a DDOS attack is! LOL Well, now that I am back up and running, I have a card to share with you today using The Paper Loft's Shades of Gray papers and the sketch for this month. If you haven't ever checked out The Paper Loft Blog, check it out and see how you can become a Guest Designer. All you have to do is participate in the... Continue reading

Hello The Rubber Cafe' Fans! Hope your day is going great! Are you ready for Easter? Well, I am getting there but haven't quite finished all the little crafts I like to make for my Easter Brunch table. Here is one idea I came up with after seeing all those Card In A Box cards everywhere on the internet. Don't worry you don't need anything special to make this Card In A Box....well you do need a scoring tool and your April Creative Cafe' Kit of The Month - Spring Is In The Air ! Here is my fun Easter Card In A Box. For the base of this card, you will need the green cardstock cut to 8 1/2" x 6". Then you will need to score this piece along the long side at 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2" and 6 1/2". Now turn your cardstock 90 degrees and... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you had a great week! Today I want to share a card that I made for my middle daughter. Her birthday is actually on February 29 but there wasn't one of those this year--so we celebrate on the 28th. Here is the card I made for her! To make this card, I used a kit from SVGCuts and my Silhouette Cameo. Now I have had the Silhouette since before Christmas but I haven't really used it alot. So I decided to play around and see what I could come up with. She just loved this card! It's a very big card 6x6" but it does come with an envelope to cut out so that was good, too! The kit I used for this card is called Thank You For The Music.....you know I will use that alot! I used some Teresa Collins - Save The Date -... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you are having a great week so far. Today I want to share with you a cute card I made using the February Creative Cafe' Kit - Tea for Two. All supplies I used are from the February kit. This card is pretty easy....the only thing that takes any amount of time is the fussy cutting. Here is my card! There is nothing hard about this card. I did use a couple of my sets of dies from Spellbinders but I always try to use sets I think most crafters have. This time I used the Scalloped and Classic Rectangles. I used the Ivory cardstock for the base of the card and it measures 4 1/4 x 11" and is folded at 5 1/2". The dotted swiss blue is cut to 4 x 5 1/4" and the patterned paper is cut to 3 3/4 x 5". I...

Hello TRC Fans! Hope your day of love is getting off to a great start! If you came directly to my blog, I would encourage you to check out The Rubber Cafe' blog today. The whole design team got together to share our "Love Fest" projects. So there is lots of lovely eye candy to see on The Rubber Cafe' Blog today! Here is my project! A cute and simple card using the stamp set from our January Creative Cafe' Kit. This card was really very simple. I stamped the puppy and the sentiment onto squares of white cardstock. I did color a bit on the puppy. One thing I did was use the tip of my black copic marker to create the heart for his eye. I thought that was cute! I also took a light colored grey copic marker and highlighted around the outside of the puppy and... Continue reading

Here are a couple of cards I made today for my family to celebrate Valentine's Day! Before Christmas, I purchased a Silhouette Cameo and have been wanting to make some elements for cards. So today that is what I did! The patterned paper is some older Crate paper from my stash. I used a decorative punch along the bottom of the red cardstock to give alittle more interest but I wanted to keep my card fairly flat because I am going to mail a couple of these. The heart with the words are the digital files I found in the Silhouette Online Store (discounted) and after adhering them into place, I added some Crystal Stickles over the words. Here is another angle...... Here is another card I made using a die cut doily and some hearts cut using my Silhouette. The sentiment stamp is from the January Creative Cafe' Kit... Continue reading
