Hello Friends! A few weeks ago my friend, Jeanne Streif, contacted me and asked me to join the Paper and More.com design team! Of course, I said yes because who doesn't love cardstock? So today I have a fun project to share with you using Paper and More's cardstock. This project was the result of a personal challenge of mine. I challenged myself to get back to basics and create a project using only cardstock, ink, stamps and dies! No patterned paper for me on this project! It's been a long time since I have done a project like this. Here is what I came up with! Using Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, I created the flowers. I really love the weight and composition of this cardstock. I stamped the flower images and die cut them. Once they were die cut, I spritzed them with water and shaped them. Once they were dry, the flower petals held there shape and look fabulous! (even if I did make them myself!). At the end of this post, there is a list of supplies I used with affiliate links to the supplies. Here is a video showing you how I created this project! Enjoy! Supplies Used: Cardstock - Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, Brown Kraft Cardstock 65# Stamps - Botanical Rose stamp set & Classic Leaf stamp set (Heartfelt Creations); Music Notes background (Prima) Ink - Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger); Olive Grove Memento Luxe ink (Tsukineko); Crumb Cake ink pad (Stampin' Up!) Dies - French Pastry Doily Die, Botanical Wings Die & Classic Leaf die - Heartfelt Creations Embellishments - pearls (eyelet outlet); lace, twine, metal embellishments, seam binding ribbon Continue reading

Hello Friends! Sorry it's been a few days since my last post. Life is pretty busy here at my house. This past weekend, my oldest daughter performed her Senior Saxophone Recital! She played so beautifully! I am sure I will be scrapbooking the pictures for all to see very soon! I don't know why but it seems like this time of year is always busy with end of year school functions, church functions and just regular life! Oh well, I have had time to create so that is really a good thing! Today is Wednesday and that means I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share with you. This month we saw the release of the Everyday Hero Collection. I really love this masculine themed collection but I also wanted to show you that the collection can be girly, too! Last week, I created a very feminine scrapbook layout and this week I used some of the leftovers from that layout to create this card! Using a card front from the Everyday Heroes Collection made creating this card fast and easy! Here is a close-up of my card. Here are instructions and links to the products I used! Enjoy!

Hello friends! Today I have two quick and easy cards to share with you using some new releases from Pink Ink Stamps. I really love these cute stamps and they really do bring back some sweet memories from when my girls were younger! For this card, I stamped the Super Sundae image onto white cardstock and colored it with copic markers. I die cut it using Classic Ovals from Spellbinders. I stamped the sentiment and cut it into a little banner. I dug out some patterned paper I had been hoarding - Melissa Frances 6x6 and used that for the background. The base of the card is kraft cardstock. For this card, I stamped the Single Scoop image and punched it out with my hand-held punches. I added the Sweet Memories sentiment along with some other fun embellishments! Sweet and simple cards bring a smile to every face just like these images bring back some really great memories! Thanks for stopping by today! PS - I have included an affiliate link to Ellen Hutson LLC for the Pink Ink Stamps I used on these cards. Ellen carries the full line of Pink Ink Stamps!

Hello Friends! Today I would like to share with you a fun project using the March Creative Cafe' Kit - Spring Is Here. I created a shaped card by cutting the base with a Grand Scalloped Circle die. I really love to make shaped cards. They are very unique and eye-catching! To create the base of this card, I folded a full sheet of the yellow cardstock ( included in the kit) in half. I positioned the scalloped circle die so that there was a small place at the fold that didn't get cut. Then I used the smaller scalloped circle dies to cut the patterned paper and the strip of yellow cardstock. I stamped the basket, bunny and sentiment onto white cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento ink and colored them with copic markers. I used a hand-held punch for the sentiment. After adhering the patterned paper and the yellow cardstock strip, I added the yellow seam binding. Then using some 3d foam squares, I added the sentiment and cute little bunny and basket. To finish the card I tied a bit of the green eyelash ribbon around the bow. Here is how I finished the inside of this card! Thanks for stopping by today!! Tomorrow is a Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' KOTM: Paper: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit-Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo Ink, Copic Markers Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue, Score-Tape Embellishments: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' KOTM: Seam Binding, Other: Spellbinder Grand & Classic circle dies, Scor-Pal, Continue reading

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share with you that I have been invited to join the design team for Pink Ink Stamps! Peggy Jo Ackley is the owner/illustrator of Pink Ink Stamps. Pink Ink Stamps acquired the wonderful designs of Karen Lockhart, too. These stamps are wood mounted, red rubber stamps and they are such wonderful quality. Here is my first project showcasing Pink Ink Stamps...... I stamped the Folk Art Flowers image 3 times using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink onto white cardstock and colored them with my copic markers. Using a Tonic Layering Square die, I die cut them out and mounted them onto a matching Tonic Scalloped Layering square die. I stamped the sentiment Saying Prayers onto white cardstock and hand cut the banner. I used an EK Success edge punch on the yellow cardstock layer and added the yellow gingham bow to finish the card! Here is a close-up This was a fun and relaxing card to create! I hope that who ever I send this card too will feel happy and bright, just like my card! Hope you will check out Pink Ink Stamps! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: Folk Art Flowers Saying Prayers and Sending Love Sentiment Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope your week is going well. I am really ready for spring, aren't you? I hope this Heartfelt Creations project I have to share with you makes you think of Spring!

Instructions: The finished card will measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Cut one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper at 5 1/2" to create two card bases. One card base you will score at 4 1/4" and fold in half. The other card base you will score at 2 1/2" from each end. This will create the tunnel portion. Cut a card front from the Butterfly Medley Paper collection to 4" x 5 1/4" and score at 2" then fold in half. Now glue this folded card front into place at the fold of the main card base. This will be the portion you will see thru the tunnel. Using a Classic Circle die, die cut a circle in the middle of the second card base to create a "hole" to peak through in the tunnel. Now you will glue the tunnel piece over the main card base - just put glue on the 2 1/2" portion so that your tunnel can fold out when you open the card. Glue strips of the patterned paper into place onto each side of the tunnel. Cut out a card front for the front of the card plus a tag from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection. Now it is time to decorate the card. Stamp the Botanical Rose flower onto purple cardstock using purple ink 3 times.

Hello friends! Today I have a fun card to share with you using the February Creative Cafe' Kit - Love The Most Wonderful Feeling from The Rubber Cafe'. If you are a new reader of mine, maybe you haven't heard about the wonderful Creative Cafe' Kits from The Rubber Cafe'. Each month you receive a stamp set, patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments, ribbon and a project sheet showing some of the projects the design team has created! I usually have a video showing you the contents of the kit at the beginning of the month. I really love these kits and hope you will check it out. For my project today, I used the little dog image from the main stamp set. I used my copic marker to make his eyes into hearts and I added some hearts for spots on him. Isn't he cute? To create this card, I cut a piece of black and white cardstock to resemble a tag. I stamped the dog image and colored it then fussy cut it out. I layered a strip of white cardstock that I used a scalloped edge punch on across the card and tied the ribbon around that portion. I added the sentiment and stamped the little paw onto a circle of white cardstock to complete the card. Here is a different view...... Thanks so much for stopping by today! Tomorrow is Wednesday so that means I will have another Heartfelt Creations project to share! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe' -Creative Cafe' Kit for Feb; Love, the Most Wonderful Feeling Paper: The Rubber Cafe'- Creative Cafe' Kit for Feb; Love, the Most Wonderful Feeling featuring Doodlebugs' Love Bugs 6x6 Paper Pad Ink: Memento Espresso; Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'- Scrap Happy Glue; 3d foam squares Embellishments: The Rubber Cafe' - enamel puff hearts; ribbon all found in the kit Tools: Scalloped border punch - EK Success; Scallop & Classic Ovals - Tonic Studios Continue reading
