Cutting Cafe Project

So I promise this will be the last post for today and I am going to bore you with lots of pictures. I am super excited about this project I have to say that templates scare me a little but this was so fast and easy. I think it took me a total of 10 minutes to print and cut so easy and that is what has me excited. I can really seeing myself making a ton of these for gifts. Now for this I made 4 cards all together and they fit perfectly in this cute Greeting Card Holder. You certainly could fit more if you just have one layer cards. Once again I used all of the K and Company Green House collection and diecuts for this project. The circle sentiments are also from cutting cafe and they are called All Occasion Circle Scallop Set so cute and useful for all your cards. I can tell you that once you make one of these you are going to be so hooked. So go check it out at the Cutting Cafe you can click on it in my sidebar. TFL!!

HI and Good Tuesday Morning

Once again sorry for the bad picture it's another cloudy day here is CT. I did this card for the Card Patterns Sketch. Kinda of alot going on with this card a little to busy for me so I may have to give it another go. I used the Green Stack from DCWV still my all time favs from them. With all the popular trees and birds and the nature stuff this is the perfect DP to go with all those popular images.I used the fiskars border punch boy I love these things they just add so much to a card and I have seen so many great creations using these wonderful punches. Stay tuned I am working on a Cutting Cafe project using their Card Holder template. I almost forgot to mention the tree stamp is from Hampton Arts super cute set with lots of trees,birds,owls and clouds can't wait to do more creations with this set(to enable you I got it at AC Moore).TFL!!

Life Is A Dream Realize It.

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend as always it just flew by. I had a little time to create some cards this morning and I was so excited how this card came out I wanted to post it right away. I decided to make a card for the Cardvarks challenge and that was to make something with a window. I have had this idea for awhile now in my head so I wanted to quick do it. This is what Icame up with the DP I used is from Crate Paper which I just love by the way I love all the earthy colors and the die cuts that come with it are great. The stamp kit I used is from Unity Birdie Inspiration another great kit just love it. I used the wood grain embossing folder which I have been wanting for awhile now and just got it the other day. I also did a little faux stitching around the sentiment. Tfl.

Good Monday Morning

I hope everyone had a great weekend. My sweet little girl had her dance recital this weekend and I was one proud mommy. I always get so emotional during these things. I seemed to be alot more emotional this year seeing my five year old up there and how big she has gotten it breaks my heart to see them grow up so fast. Alot has happened this year and it makes so grateful for every little thing thing that we have. Ok so onto the cards sorry I got side tracked there. My Friend asked me to make thank you cards for some teachers but the whole challenge was that she wanted them to have butterflies on them so this is what I came up with. I used that K and Company Green House paper that I can't seem to get enough of. Sorry for the bad Pictures again. Don't forget to keep an eye out for a new Sweet sketch on Wednesday it's another great one. We really need people to play along with us as I said before you can use any of your stamps does not have to be anything special. TFL!!

Welcome Little Sprout

Last card for today. This card I made for one of the Unity Challenges and that is to paper piece using Unity Stamps and this is what I came up with. The stamp kit Is Little Sprout from Unity such a cute kit love it. The paper is from K and Company I know is a little wild but I think it came together ok. Who Knows I might be back with the other challenge card. Make sure you check out all the deals over at Unity and they have a new kit released today. So dangerous!! TFL.

May You Feel Peace and Love

I wanted to share this sympathy card that I made for a dear friend. It's always so hard to make sympathy cards especially for someone you know. For this card I used Basic Grey Paper which you can't see all that good in the picture. The stamp set I used is from Papertrey Ink With Sympathy and then I thought it would be a nice touch to add these sweet butterflies which is a Martha Stewart punch. I will be later with another card. TFL

How about another card using no stamps. If you can believe it I never really use chipboard but all these companies are coming out with chipboard to match their paper lines and I am loving it.

If you have not heard Unity is Having a Garage sale every Wednesday where they pick a few fabulous sets and put them on sale for awesome prices so go check it out there is some great stuff on sale today and today only.TFL!!!

Teacher Project

I have alot of pictures so bare with me here. This is a project that I did for a Friend. The Idea behind this notebook is that on the inside she is going to put a class picture and then all the kids get a page to write a note to the teacher. I decorated each page with an embellishment and a piece of Dp nothing to fancy because I wanted the kids to have room to write or draw something.
This page is for the class picture.

These are the inner pages I did twelve of them.

I didn't wnat to bore you to much so I didn't take a picture of all the pages but you get the idea. The paper I used is October Afternoon. All the ribbon I used is from Papertrey Ink. TFL.
