I had need of a few cards so I thought it would be fun to go through my little scrap bin and see what I could come up with... I've created two cards with items exclusively from there! This first card was fun because there were actually a few options in the pile. Yes... so many little items I cut or stamp that never make it onto a card. I can remember why I cut or stamped each element too...... Continue reading

Two of my daughters are away from home on missions for our church. One is serving in Utah and desperately misses the ocean. So this is a little project of love. I gathered sand from a local beach, making sure that there were shells and little beach treasures included. A rock with barnacles and such. The little bottle I found at Rite Aid of all places. The little tag has some sweet instructions for Hannah to follow when she needs... Continue reading

One of the best things about larger sentiments is that you can create backgrounds with them! That's what this card is all about! Combining Together Forever and Ampersand Die-namics to make a fun card front... and nice and flat for mailing too! I used a grid lined acrylic block to line everything up and that really helped. Bright bold colors are great for happy occasions too! There is another sentiment in Together Forever that coordinates perfectly with the one on... Continue reading

This MFT retiring list is actually pretty painful as there are a few of my very favorite items that are going to go... forever. But I guess the old saying is as true as ever... my loss is your gain! While none of my products are marked down I wanted to point out my top, favorites that are going away.... *SOB*! But there are many more I'll miss! For the full sale... see these pages...

Every month the MFT Design Team have the opportunity to rewind a little to highlight some of the new products... I've created this little ensemble to show a few more additions design ideas for Beautiful Baby. Being a mom of four daughters makes me want to create girl items naturally... so I went with pink! Ironically, I wasn't into pink at all until my youngest came along. And she is so girly! LOL! Playing with gold a little again... and... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! It's was such a beautiful day yesterday.... and since it was spring break we went to the zoo!

This card is a great semi glam card for the more modern recipient. I've used the, soon to be released, Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics for creating the star trail and stars.... Continue reading
