Hello Friends! I am so excited to share with you that as of August 1, 2015, I joined the Crafter's Companion International Inspiration Team! This will be so much fun! Right now, I am a bit overwhelmed by the vast array of products Crafter's Companion makes and sells. There are Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Aqua Markers, Blendable Pencils, Stamps, Embossing Folders, Dies, Digital products, papers and the Ultimate Tool! So I hope you will join me on this new adventure to find out all about all these products! I am super excited to get started! So for my first project, I kept it simple. Just some stamps, paper and markers......oops, I forgot about the dies, too! To create this card the first thing I did was to stamp the poppy images onto the red cardstock panel using Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink all around the edges. This just gives the background alittle more dimension. Then I stamped - EZMount Stamp Set - Poppies and Daisies stamp set - onto the Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink pad. I colored the poppies using the Spectrum Noir Markers - CR8, CR10, CR 11, CG2, DG4. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the white cardstock and die cut it using the Die'Sire Essentials Scalloped Ovals dies. I popped the sentiment up using some 3d foam squares. Here is the inside of my card..... Here is a close up of the front! I had a great time creating this card! I hope you will check out all that Crafter's Companion has to offer.....there is alot! Thanks for stopping by today and I would love to know what you think of my new adventure with Crafter's Companion! Continue reading

Hello friends! It's finally gotten hot around here which is the weather we expect during summer here in Missouri. When it's hot in our house everyone is eating ice cream! I can't tell you how many gallons of ice cream we go thru in the summer but it's alot (especially when all the college girls are home!) I thought it would be cute to use a few of the Ice Cream images & papers from the July Creative Cafe' Kit -Too Much Sun to make a latch card. To create this latch card is super simple. Cut the cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" base and fold this at the 4 1/4" mark. Cut 3/4" off the front panel of the card base and fold the card. Place the folded card into your scoring tool and score every 1/4" at the cut point. I had 3 score lines on my card. These scored lines allow your "latch" to bend easily when opening and closing the card! I used a piece of orange cardstock punched from a hand-held punch and I glued the ice cream cone image onto it. I adhered this "latch" onto the scored panel using 3d foam squares. Like I said....this was super easy but looks so cute! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: "Too Much Sun" Paper: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit- Doodle Bug "Sun Kissed" paper pack and Bazzill Cardstock Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic Markers Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue, 3D Foam squares Embellishments: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: Ribbon Tools: Scor-Pal Continue reading

Refold the card and line up the edge of the card fold to the left on the scoring tool and just outside the edge of the front of the card score 3 lines next to each other (every 1/4").

Hello friends! Today I have a cute party favor that I made using the supplies from the June Creative Cafe' Kit - Home of the Red, White & Blue! Using a cut file for my digital cutter, I created this Round Top Box. Now I know not everyone has a digital cutter so I found a PDF file (gotta love google) that you can use to print this out on your computer and then cut it out with scissors. You can print this directly onto the cardstock you are using or you can just print it out and use it as a pattern. Round Top Box PDF Here is my patriotic round top box........ After making the box out of the dotted navy paper, I cut some of the patterned paper to fit the sides and the front. I stamped the little girl image and colored her with my copic markers. Then I die cut the image using some classic circle and scalloped circle dies. The red and white cardstock stars were cut with my digital cutter. I added the sequins from the kit and stamped the sentiment. This is going to look so good on our picnic table at our annual 4th of July party this year! I am going to make a bunch of these and will put some poppers and trinkets in it for the kids! Hope you give this project a try! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: "Let's Celebrate" Paper: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit- Doodlebug "Patriotic Picnic" and Bazzill Cardstock Ink: Espresso Truffle Memento Ink Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue, Scor-Tape Dies - Classic Circles LG, Jumbo Scalloped Circles Lg - Spellbinders SVG cut files - Round Top Box, 3d stars Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you are having a fun weekend! I am going to make this quick because I have a fun weekend planned, too! As of today, all of my girls are home from college for the whole summer! I am so excited! So for today's project, I used a couple of stamps from Pink Ink Stamps LLC. I really love the classic images Pink Ink has and these are my favorite! I don't know if you can tell in the picture but I used an embossing folder on the base of this card. I stamped the Bitty Butterfly 3 times and colored it with copic markers. I colored the butterfly to match the Bo Bunny papers I used. I die cut the butterflies using the Classic Square Layering dies from Tonic Studios. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment and die cut it using the Oval Layering dies from Tonic. You can purchase Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson, LLC. Ellen has a great selection of Pink Ink in her store! This was a fun but quick card to create plus I used colors that I really love! I made a stack of these for my mom to send to her friends! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your Memorial Day weekend is filled with family and friends! Continue reading

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
