Hello friends! Sorry I haven't blogged in a few weeks (didn't realize it had been that long!). I have been having a lazy summer. Just haven't had much creative energy lately so I thought taking some time off would help. I don't know if it has been I did have fun creating with a new line of dies Crafter's Companion has come out with. The dies are from the Gemini line and can help you make the easiest and quickest accordion cards. Today I am using the Daisy Rectangle Accordion die to create this card. Like I said, the dies make this super easy to create. All the dies I used for the base of the card are included in the Daisy Rectangle Accordion die set. I also used the Crafter's Companion Daisy Duo & Textured Stamen dies to create the flowers and the leaves are the Crafter's Companion Assorted Leaves die set. The embossed sentiment panels are from the Words Embossing Folders set. This is a new line from Crafter's Companion, too. If you are curious about the accordion dies, let me know. I would love to create a video tutorial if people are interested! Here are some links to some of the products I used.....(I have used Affiliate links.

Hello friends! I don't know about you but when you start talking about summer most people think about the beach and going on an island get-away. Unfortunately, I won't be having that type of vacation this year but I got this super cute stamp from Pink Ink Stamps and I couldn't wait to start coloring it. It definitely will remind you of all the great things about summer! I used some Spectrum Noir Graphic Markers to color the image. This is a pretty detailed image so it took alittle time to color but I love to use that time to just relax! I decided that this image really didn't need a whole lot of embellishments or anything to take away from the detail so I kept the actual card pretty simple. I used a dotted embossing folder on the white layer and stamped the sentiment onto a small scrap of white cardstock. I just cut around the sentiment and popped it up with some 3d foam squares. I have a million buttons and have decided I should use them more so I used some twine to anchor the button on the card. Pretty easy once you color the image!

Hello friends! Hope you had a great Father's Day weekend. It's been so hot here and this week is supposed to be even hotter. That is a perfect time to stay in my cool basement and create lots of projects! I just received a big box of goodies from Crafter's Companion that will be showcased on HSN (Home Shopping Network) in July. I will be sharing those things really soon. Today I have a card to share with you that I created using a Crafter's Companion Die'sire die and Foil Transfers along with the Gemini machine. Here is my card..... I really love this color combo. I used some Rustic Wedding 6x6 paper along with white and peach cardstock. I die cut the Die'sire Spring Garden Create-A-Card die from peach cardstock. This die is really neat. It is actually two pieces. You can use each separately or use them together like I did here. After I die cut it from peach cardstock, I adhered it to a piece of white cardstock and just trimmed around it. That way the white shows thru and you can see all the detail! I used the Floral Tea Foil Transfers along with Matt Gold Foil. I also added Matte gold sequins. I used 3d foam squares and some foam tape to pop everything up. To apply the transfer, I just ran it thru the Gemini. This definitely gives you the best result when using the transfers. Here are some links to some of the products I used.....(I have used Affiliate links.

Hello friends! I have one more Father's Day card to share with you. This card uses all Crafter's Companion supplies. If you are a fan of Crafter's Companion on HSN, I hope that you have joined the Facebook group. If you haven't and want to join, just comment here and I can help you out with that. The group has all kinds of inspiration using supplies Crafter's Companion sells on HSN. This was a pretty fast card to create! To create this card, I used the Bunting, Buckles and Medals die set to create the medal. I die cut the medal from the Matt Gold Luxury Cardstock and from teal cardstock. I die cut the No. 1 from the Friends & Family Words die. The letters for DAD are from the 0.5 Alphabet dies. I think this was a great way to create a Father's Day card without the need for a stamp that says "Happy Father's Day". Especially since I couldn't find any stamp that said that in my whole stash! LOL Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Can you believe it's almost Father's Day? This time last year, I was in full wedding mode with my daughter's wedding. Thankfully that's all over because this weekend is supposed to be the hottest weekend so far! Well we will have a quiet little celebration for my husband on Sunday. So I got busy making some Father's Day cards. I got out some supplies that I have had for a long time and have never used. Here is my card..... This was a pretty simple card to create. I took my color combo from the plaid paper. I love these papers from Lawn Fawn. There is two different plaids in every color in the paper pad. I used the circle and star dies to create interest. I used some StickIt! adhesive on the back of the white cardstock so it was easy to adhere the letters down. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white and cut the banner ends. I used foam tape and 3d foam squares to adhere things down. I think my husband will really like this! Now I have to get it to my girls so they can sign it! Try to stay cool this weekend! Don't forget, the links below contain affiliate links. (These links are to different stores, where if you purchase something using that link, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you.

Hello friends! I know it's been awhile since I have posted anything. I have been creating but I have been just having some summer fun. Nothing too exciting but it's been nice to just relax and just do nothing. I took some time to create a couple of cards the other day using some supplies from Crafter's Companion. This is where the color Rose Gold comes into play. I have to say that I absolutely love that color. Here are my cards..... For this square card, I used the Floral Tea Foil Transfer kit and Rose Gold Foil. Plus I used some Rose Gold Glitter Luxury Cardstock. See what I mean? It's a great color. It looks okay in this picture but I have to say it's so much better in real life! I have never been real successful with rub-ons, etc. But I have figured out that if you run the transfers thru the Gemini Machine, you will get perfect results everytime. First you place the transfer onto the cardstock and run it thru the machine. Then you remove the transfer plastic and place the foil on the cardstock and run it thru the Gemini. Perfect results everytime!! If you would like to see this technique, just leave a comment and will create a video to show how I do this. Here is another card....... For this card I used some patterned paper from the Rustic Cottage 6x6 paper pad. The heart is the Die'sire Create-A-Card Love is in the Air die. I cut this die twice. Once from the vanilla cardstock and once from the rose gold glitter cardstock. I cut out the glitter flowers and glued them into place. I added some pearls and the foil transfer sentiment. If you would like the instructions on creating this card, just click HERE to see them. If you would like to see more project sheets using products that Crafter's Companion has sold on HSN, just click HERE. There are lots of project sheets of beautiful projects. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

*WARNING! - this post is all about my personal life. No crafts today!! Hello friends! Well we started out our summer with some real excitement. On May 12, my daughter, Caitlyn, graduated from Quincy University & Blessing Rieman College of Nursing with her BSN. We are so very proud of her and very excited because she will be working in labor/delivery at a large hospital not far from our house! Here are my girls....... From left to right, Colleen, Caitlyn and Cassie. I can't believe how lucky I am to be their mother. The day after graduation, Caitlyn and her boyfriend Michael and 9 others from Quincy University left for Italy. They had 10 days to enjoy all the sights in Italy. About the third day they were gone, I got this photo with the message.....She said Yes! We are so happy for them! What a romantic way to propose, don't you think! I think EVERYONE knew Michael was going to propose except Caitlyn. I am very excited for them and kinda excited to get started with the wedding crafts again! Now it's time for us to kick the graduation party plans into gear and get on with the rest of the summer. I am going to ignore the fact that I am now the mother to a Senior in high school. I should have a ton of crafty to share over the summer. I am designing for Crafter's Companion still and in July they will be having another crafty day on HSN. Plus I am expecting a big box of goodies from Tonic Studios soon. I am not really designing for any other companies, so expect some posts using stuff I really love. I really enjoy sharing my creations with you but with the change in the industry (as far as designers go), I am not sure how long I can maintain this blog and continue to share my creations. That is one of the reasons why I started using affiliate links to try and cover some of the costs of keeping my blog, etc. I sure do appreciate it anytime you click on something I link too and make a purchase. Every little bit helps! So now that you are caught up with me and my family, let's get the crafty show on the road! Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have a graduation congratulations card to share with you. This particular card is for a guy and you know I have issues making masculine cards. This one turned out great! See what I mean?? I used some new stuff from Tonic Studios.....those star sequins are very pretty! They are called Mirrorball Stars and they are from the Nuvo Pure Sheen Confetti line. I highly recommend that Marvy Jewel Picker for sequins and rhinestones. It's cheap and it works great! I think I will create this card in alot of different colors of glitter paper and sequins. That way no two cards look alike even though they are! If you need a graduation card like this, I have a few to sell. Just shot me an email! Thanks for stopping by today!! Here is a list of supplies I used for the cards...(I have used Affiliate links.

Hello friends! This week is a busy one here at our house. Our daughter is graduating from college this weekend and we are so excited! I took some time to create a few cards for this occasion and just for fun, too! I have been getting the Simon Says Stamp monthly kit for awhile now and sometimes I am really bad about actually using them. Well I decided to make the cards that I needed from the April Kit. I really love the butterfly stencil that was in this kit. In past months the kits have included some Distress Oxide pads and I thought I would use those and have some fun. Here is my first card....... For this card, I just placed the stencil onto my white cardstock panel and used some sponges to add and blend the Cracked Pistachio & Broken China Distress Oxide inks. I really love how easy and smoothly these inks blend together! I put this panel onto a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" white cardstock base. I added some patterned paper along the edge. Plus I fussy cut out one of the butterflies to pop up for some dimension. I also used the Stamp Platform to add my sentiment in black ink. I love using the platform because I don't have to worry about not getting a good image the first time....I can just stamp it again! Here is another card I created using the same stencil and the same ink pads. Instead of using a sponge, I pressed the ink pads onto my craft mat and then spritzed water. I pressed a piece of Bristol paper onto this ink and few times and allowed it to dry. Once the panel was dry, I put the stencil into place and applied some Nuvo Aquamarine Embellishment Mousse using a palette knife. I also did the same on some white cardstock so I could fussy cut out the butterflies to add interest to my card. I really love these colors, don't you? I think this is my favorite card of all the ones I made the last couple of days! I really don't have anyone to give it to either! LOL Here is a list of supplies I used for the cards...(I have used Affiliate links. These links are to different stores, where if you purchase something using that link, I will receive a small commission... Continue reading

Hello friends. On May 2, Crafter's Companion is having another crafty day. I received some of the products in my design team shipment and I am excited to share a couple of the projects I created using the new stuff! You can see all the new stuff coming HERE on the Crafter's Companion website. This card was created using the Sheena Douglass 3d embossing folder and Spectrum Noir Aqua Tint and Sparkle Markers. To begin, I ran the Kraft cardstock panel thru the Gemini using the Wisteria Wall 3d embossing folder. Using a sponge and brown ink pad, I highlighted the embossed portions that weren't the flowers, just to give it some depth. Using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker, I picked up some color (from the Amethyst Aqua Tint Marker colored on my craft mat) and colored the embossed flowers. I did the same for the leaves. The sparkle marker gives a very nice and subtle glitter that is so pretty. The sentiment is from the matching stamp set and I stamped it onto a scrap of white cardstock using black ink pad. This was a very fun card to create! I love the detail you get using these embossing folders with the Gemini. Here is another version of this card but I used the Wisteria stamp set and watercolor paper. After the watercolor dried, I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them into place using 3d foam squares. I placed them onto the embossed panel where the flowers were embossed. The sentiment is from the stamp set, too. I absolutely love these cards. I think it's just because the images and embossing folders are so detailed! Plus purple has always been a favorite color of mine! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

ello friends! Hope you are enjoying springtime weather in your area. I am happy that today the sun is shining and it's warm. The flowers are starting to bloom in my yard and that makes me so happy. What a long and cold winter we have had around here. Hope it's over! Today I have a fun card to share with you that I created using stamps & dies from Neat & Tangled. I am really loving this stamp set. I am not an expert watercolorer but I do love it because you get so much freedom with colors and blends. I used some watercolor paper and Tonic Studios Aqua Flow pens. These pens have a brush marker. You can use them full strength on the paper or with a water color brush or even a waterbrush. Today I used the Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer glitter pen to watercolor the flowers for this card. I stamped the flower image using Antique Linen Distress Ink so that the lines were very light. Here is a closer look...... I think in this picture you can just see the glitter that is on each flower. Using the glitter gloss pen to add color to the images gives you the watercolored look and lots of glitter! On May 2, Crafter's Companion will be on HSN (Home Shopping Network) and I have some projects to share using products that will be available on that day. Check back tomorrow to see a couple of these projects! Here are the links to the products I used to create this card. (I have used Affiliate links. These links are to different stores, where if you purchase something using that link, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. Thank you for your support!) Continue reading

Hello Friends! I am excited to share with you today a fun collection from Crafter's Companion. The Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Vintage Tea Party is so pretty. If you like vintage, shabby chic and tea then this collection is for you! Here are a couple of cards that I created using the collection. This collection will be available on the Crafter's Companion website soon. For this card, I used the Doily Delights embossing folder for the background. I added the doily and the tea cup die cuts from the metal dies in the collection. Here is another card I created..... For this card, I used another sentiment from the Teariffic Sentiments die set, the doily and a tea pot. Plus the paper from the 6x6 paper pad. You can see what is available in the collection on HSN (Home Shopping Network) but I notice that most of it is sold out. Sorry..... I have been creating thank you cards like crazy. It was my birthday a few weeks ago and my family threw me a surprise party! It was so much fun! I will share my thank you notes and some other projects later this week!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you are having a good week so far. Today I have a fun card to share with you. I used a product from Crafter's Companion that you might not be familiar with unless you shop on HSN on the crafty days. Crafter's Companion has these really cool Foil Transfer kits that I just love. The transfers are like the scrapbook rub-ons but they actually work. I cut out the sentiment or other picture that I want to transfer and apply this to the card. Then I just run it thru the Gemini so that the transfer has even pressure and they just work fantastic! Here is a card I created using the Victorian Vintage Foil Transfers with some Matt Silver foil. I am planning on creating a tutorial on how to use these foil transfers next week. They are really easy to use..... The supplies I used were just on HSN so they aren't available on the Crafter's Companion website yet. But there are other foil transfer kits that are available on the website that are just beautiful. You can check the kits out here on the website. Continue reading

Hello friends. Crafter's Companion had another crafty day on HSN last week. There was alot of really great products. I wanted to share with you the Her Hobby Edge'able die that I used to make these two fun cards. These dies are meant to be cut along the edge so they pop up to make a really unique card. For my first card, I used the die at the top of a sheet of white cardstock. After cutting and embossing the die, I left the cardstock in the die and used a sponge to add some ink highlights. I really love this Afternoon Tea Edge'able die! For this next card, I created a easel card from a sheet of 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" card base. After folding the top portion in half, I used the die to cut/emboss the Afternoon Tea die. I used the same sponge/ink technique to add highlights. You can check out these dies on HSN (Home Shopping Network). There were sold in a pack of three different edge'able dies - Afternoon Tea, Knitting and Sewing. They are very unique dies and there are lots of ways to use them. If you watch the video on HSN you will see what I mean! I have a few more projects showing new products from Crafter's Companion for later this week!! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I don't know about you but I am really wishing for spring. Yesterday we got about 3 inches of snow. I have to say that I am completely over winter. To help me think about spring, I created a cute card using a new-to-me stamp set from Neat & Tangled. Here is my fun card and I hope it makes you think of spring! To begin, stamp the chick & egg images onto white cardstock with black ink. Color with the markers. Fussy cut each image and set them aside. Die cut the patterned paper using the largest scalloped rectangle in the Mixed Edge Rectangle die set. Die cut the pink and white cardstock using the dies from the Hello ATC Die. Stamp the sentiment onto the white die cut using the Stamp Platform. Assemble the card using 3d foam tape to give some dimension. Here is the finished card again. I have more projects to share with you this week. I have a few projects I created using Crafter's Companion new products! Can't wait to share with you! Here is a list of supplies that include affiliate links (at no cost to you)..... Continue reading

Hello Friends! I love to create beautiful and frilly birthday cards for my female friends and family. So when I need a card for a male family member it can sometimes be a challenge to create the card. Using some new supplies, I created a card that would be perfect for a man or woman! The colors in the new 6x6 paper pad from Reverse Confetti are perfect for a birthday card for anyone, don't you think? Don't you just love that little envelope? It's a die from My Favorite Things! I actually created this card for my nephew and he really liked it! I really love how this turned out! I might make a few more in different colors to have on hand! Here are the supplies I used: Affiliate Links used at no cost to you.....Thanks! Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have a quick and easy watercolor card to share with you. I created a quick video to show you how I did the watercolor wash using Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens on watercolor paper. I can't do a voice over for the video right now as I have lost my voice. Some weird virus has settled in our house and I am the last to get it. So hopefully you get the idea how easy these pens are to use from the video! Here is my card..... To begin this card, I stamped the floral images onto watercolor paper using embossing ink. I applied Nuvo Fine Detail Glacier White embossing powder and heat set the images. Using the Nuvo Medium Water Brush, I wet the images first and then used the Nuvo Aqua Flow pens. This is a super quick way to get the watercolor wash look. Here is the video...... Here is another close up of my card.... Using the Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens was really fun and easy. I am definitely not a watercolor expert. In fact, I will never be a watercolor expert. But I think I got some really good results with this technique! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies Used: Includes affiliate links (at no cost to you) Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens - Tonic Studios Nuvo Aqua Flow Water Brush - Tonic Studios Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail Embossing Powder - Tonic Studios Essentials - Mini Moments - For You - 1713E Essentials - Scalloped Square Dies - Tonic Studios Essentials - Layering Basics Squares Dies - Tonic Studios Heat Tool- Wagner Perfectly Plaid - Rainbow Petite 6x6 paper pad - Lawn Fawn Anti Static Powder Tool - EK Success Watercolor Paper - Ranger More Spring Flowers Stamp Set - Simon Says Stamp Embossing Ink Pad - Simon Says Stamp 3d foam tape Continue reading

This week, Tonic Studios and Neat & Tangled have been doing a collaboration. There have been some really cute projects this week.

Hello friends! I recently got a big box of goodies from Crafter's Companion for the next crafty day on HSN (Home Shopping Network). One of the new things that will be on that show is a new kind of embossing folder. This embossing folder will CUT and Emboss in one pass! These are some really neato embossing folders! Here is a card I created using one of them. I used a sponge and some dye ink to highlight the embossing. I saved some of the little hearts that were cut out and adhered them as embellishments. Here is what the inside of the Cut & Emboss folder looks like..... Here is what the cardstock looks like after running it thru the Gemini Just have to poke out the little bits and sponge some ink on.....Be sure to save the little heart cut-outs to embellish the card! These folders are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" so if you want to use it on an A2 card you will need to trim it just a bit. But this size also works well on a 5 x 7" card, like I created. There are a couple of bundles of these folders that will be available on HSN on March 7. If you would like to see what's coming to HSN, you can join the Fans of Crafter's Companion on HSN Facebook group HERE. Just ask to join the group and answer a couple of questions. You will see all kinds of sneak peeks and how-to videos! Continue reading

Hello friends! I needed to replenish my stash of cards as it was getting pretty slim. Sitting down to create a bunch of cards at once is not one of my favorite things to do. But I did think that maybe I could create some card elements to keep in my stash that would help me create cards quickly and easily when I need them. Embossing images and fussy cutting them out, can be a quick way to embellish a card. Stamp a whole sheet of images using Versamark embossing ink, sprinkle on some embossing powder (a neutral color like Gold) and then heat set the images. Then when you are watching television one night, start fussy cutting the images. I place these in a snack size ziploc bag and use them when I need to create some cards quickly. Here is a card I created using some of these flowers...... I used some supplies from a couple of the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Kit club to create these cards. Stamps from the Kind Flowers stamp set (included in the November kit) and sentiments from Bouquet of Thanks stamp set - both from Simon Says. You can see a full tutorial for how I made these cards over on the Tonic Studios Blog HERE. Here is a closer look at my flowers...... I used some Nuvo Fine Detail White Embossing powder to emboss the sentiment. I get the best results from fine detail embossing powder when trying to emboss sentiments. You could make these little strips ahead of time, too! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have added a new kind of supply list below. Let me know what you think. Affiliate links mean that when you click on them and purchase something, I get a small percentage. That money helps me continue to be able to share my crafty projects.

Hello friends! Recently I received some really cute stamps from Neat And Tangled to create some Valentine's Day cards. I have had so much fun creating with this set of squirrels called My Favorite Nut. I don't design for Neat & Tangled but did receive these sets as a product exchange with the Tonic Studios Blog Ambassadors. I will have a few more blog posts for you the next couple of weeks using Neat & Tangled sets. These stamps are just so fun! Here is what I created for my first project! One thing you should definitely know about me is that when it comes to coloring, I am kinda lazy. If I can find a way to NOT color, I will. LOL Fussy cutting and paper piecing are something I really like to do so that is what I did with the cute squirrel couple in an acorn stamp. But I did use the Nuvo Alcohol Markers to color the squirrel couple and the leaves. Then I fussy cut them out and adhered them into place. There are matching dies that go with the My Favorite Nut stamp set and they work really well! Love that! Using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, I stamped the love sentiment using Watermelon ink pad and then stamped on top of the love with embossing ink. I sprinkled on some Nuvo Shimmering Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. I used the matching die to cut out the sentiment. Here is a video showing you how I created this card.......be kind to me because I seem to have forgotten how to make a tutorial video. I didn't realize it had been so long since I made a video! Here is another look at my cards...... Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! Remember those supplies I showed you the other day? The ones from Reverse Confetti? Well I finally got to sit down at my desk and created a couple of cards. It was great to just create for fun! I used the new supplies and some patterned paper I had in my stash. I made a New Year's resolution to mail more cards this year. So this creative session was to replenish my stash of cards! Here are my cards... For this card, I used some 6x6 patterned paper that I received in a Simon Says Stamp kit a couple of months ago. The stamp and die sets are from Reverse Confetti called Kindness Cards. This was just released and I really love it! These ares use the same sketch, patterned papers and stamp set but I changed up the sentiments. Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card so I went with the love & prayers sentiment from Gina K. Designs. The flower is from the set called Something Wonderful by Reverse Confetti. Both of the stamp sets have a matching die set and I got those, too! I heat embossed the flower image onto Kraft cardstock using some fine detail embossing powder. I love how it turned out! I hope I have given you some ideas for your cards. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! I took some time off over the holidays and now I am having some issues getting my creativity going. Do you ever have that problem? What is one way you try to get your creativity going? I do a couple of things.....1. search the internet and Pinterest for inspiration and 2. purchase some new products - especially from a company I like but don't have much of their products. So I did the second one last week. I purchased some new release stuff from Reverse Confetti. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw my crafty haul! LOL You can check me out on Instagram HERE. I will be sharing my creations using these supplies in the next couple of days. I have to take one more day off with some family stuff, then I can get back to creating!! Thanks somuch for stopping by today! I would love to know how you get your creativity going! Continue reading
