Waves of Inspiration Swap

At the end of February, I took part in a Waves of Inspiration swap organized by Tami White. Well, I received my swaps and they are all wonderful- I had to share them with you. I’ve added links to the various accounts under each picture if I had them. I love the blues on theContinue reading “Waves of Inspiration Swap”

Sweet Ice Cream Tag

I haven’t made a tag in a while and when I was flipping through my Designer Series Paper stash (it’s really a leaning tower of “Oh My Goodness I Have TOO Much”), I saw the Simply Marbelous paper (available as a Sale-A-Bration item) and thought Ice Cream Birthday Tag! I cut two tags (Basic WhiteContinue reading “Sweet Ice Cream Tag”

January 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

I love the triple heart card in this month’s Paper Pumpkin – but when I held it in my hand, I knew I could do more with it. I cut those hearts apart and made a little peek-a-boo card: The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Blushing Bride, scored at 5Continue reading “January 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative”

January 2021 Paper Pumpkin

The January Paper Pumpkin kit is one of my favorites each year – it usually is Valentine-themed and the stamp set can be used for so many other ‘love’ occasions. This 2021 January kit falls right in line with the past kits. From the sneak peek images, the heart-shaped cards with a pink and goldContinue reading “January 2021 Paper Pumpkin”

Hand-Penned Thanks

I decided to take a a five minute break from all the holiday card-, treat-, and giftcard holder- making (that was a mouthful) and create a quick thank you card. I am always sending and giving out thank you cards, so it was time to replenish my stock. This one couldn’t have been easier toContinue reading “Hand-Penned Thanks”

More Bay Window Birthdays

I had an awesome opportunity this weekend to attend a retreat run by demonstrator Michelle Halleen. It was a great day – full of crafting, information, and fun. It’s been quite a while since such a number of us have been able to gather like this. With retreats and gathering almost inevitably comes the chanceContinue reading “More Bay Window Birthdays”

Hey Boo! Cute Halloween Card

October is fully here so I have to get a jump on my Halloween cards (I’ve been spending all my time, it seems, using the great holiday products from the new mini catalog.) Because these pumpkins, ghosts, skull, and kitty cats are just too cute – I had to distress the paper a little bitContinue reading “Hey Boo! Cute Halloween Card”

Frosted gingerbread cookies and sweets definitely make me think of the holiday season. How about you? I used the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle to create this holiday card following the sketch challenge #573 from Just Add Ink. To make this card, you’ll need: Basic White Thick cardbase: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″Continue reading “Frosted Gingerbread Card”

Candy Cane Christmas Card

What’s black and white and red all over? No….not that silly joke from elementary school – the answer is this Christmas card. The simple black, white, and red color scheme of this card makes it a fun way to spread some cheer. Here’s how I made the card: Score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ pieceContinue reading “Candy Cane Christmas Card”
