Hello Friends! This week I have an elegant and thoughtful card to share with you using the supplies from the December Creative Cafe' Kit - Take Flight by The Rubber Cafe'. This kit has some beautiful images and thoughtful sentiments. Using the burgundy cardstock for my base, I cut it to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2". I scored it at 5 1/4" to create the square card. I cut a piece of the gray cardstock to 5 x 5". Using a scalloped edge punch, I punched the gray cardstock. Then I cut a piece of patterned paper to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4". I added some of the black/white polka dot washi tape included in the kit to the edge of the patterned paper. I used the scalloped edge punch and layered this onto the gray cardstock. Using Spellbinders Labels 29, ( or you could use THESE or THESE from... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today is Wednesday so that means it's time for a Heartfelt Creations project! On Black Friday, Heartfelt Creations released the Romantique Garden Collection. I really love the color combos and the romance of the whole collection. Here is alittle more about Romantique Garden. Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes. Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes. Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of...

Hello friends! Today I want to share with you a scrapbook layout I created using up some of stash! Yes, I created something just for me! I used some mixed media techniques and lots of embellishments! I added some textured paste using a Prima Stencil then I spritzed with some color mists. After all that dried I started having fun filling my page with lots of embellishments! I don't usually purchase pre-made flowers but when I do, I usually buy white or off-white flowers so that I can spritz them or ink them any color that I want. Here are a few close-ups! I am going to look for a frame so that I can hang this in my bedroom. I really love how this turned out! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I want to share with you a cute treat basket I made using the November Creative Cafe Kit - Now We're Cookin' from The Rubber Cafe'. I used the Sizzix die - Berry Basket to create this basket. This die comes with the scalloped edge and the front labels and tags. After die cutting them, all I had to do was stamp! You could use blueberry or strawberry containers directly from the grocery store as your basket base. I created a small tag to tie at the top to identify my gift! I wrapped up some Oatmeal Cookies (baked with love) and tied some yellow seam binding to hold it all together. This was a cute and easy project plus I think it would be great to make a bunch of these as a place setting at our Thanksgiving dinner. What do you think? Thanks for stopping... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you. A few weeks ago, I purchased a mixed media scrapbooking kit from The Scrapbook Diaries. You can see the kit and the layout HERE. I sat down to create my layout and used the supplies and instructions as a guide and changed things up a bit but I didn't get too crazy! LOL I added some cool die cut elements to my page. I recently found out that Tonic Studios makes dies...did you know that? I have a Tonic paper cutter, Tonic scissors, Tonic edge distresser, etc. but I sure didn't know they made dies, too! Here is my layout so you can check out these awesome die cuts! Up in the right-hand corner is one of the Tonic Studios die cuts! Plus there is another one under the hearts!

Hello Friends! This is my last week as the October Guest Designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I have had alot of fun creating with the beautiful stamps, dies and paper that Our Daily Bread Designs sent me and want to say a special thank you to Kelley and Lisa for having me as a guest designer. For my last project, I created a scrapbook layout of two of my daughters. I wanted to show off the beautiful doily stamp and die plus show that you can still scrapbook even if the patterned papers are small! To start I found some coordinating 12 x 12 cardstock in my stash that matched the color scheme of the Soulful Stitches 6x6 paper pad. I cut about 3/4" off of 2 sides of a piece of 12 x 12" ivory cardstock. Then I distressed the edges and sponged some Tattered Rose distress ink.... Continue reading

Hello Friends! This is my third post as guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. This week, I have a fun tag that I made using some more of the products from the September release! To create this tag, I used the Ranger #8 manila craft tags for the base. I adhered the 2 different papers from the Soulful Stitches 6x6 paper Collection to my tag base and sponged Tattered Rose distress ink along the edges plus I used my distress edger. I stamped a portion of the doily blessings stamp on the upper right portion of the tag. I sprinkled on white detail embossing powder and heat set. I added a small triangle of paper in the middle of my embossed doily. I die cut the doily and sponged the edges and added it to my tag. Using supplies from my stash, I created the tape measure ribbon bow... Continue reading
