It's A girl Thing

Here is another card using Sweet'n Sassy Stamps. This is such a cute set and it stamps like a dream I just thought that Amy Butler Paper would go good with this stamp. I love the colors in this paper. I attempted to do some more stitching along the edge of the card I cannot sew straight for the life of me I guess I just need more practice. TFL!!! Have A Happy and Safe New Year!! I will be back tomorrow for FWF.

Happy Christmas Eve

Today I am sharing a set of cards using the awesome Sassafras Marmalade Collection. I love Sassafras and all of their great patterns it's just so cheerful to work with a great collection of papers. I have been trying lately to get the most out the things I purchase and a great challenge for me is to see how many different cards I can make with the same collection of papers and products. It's not hard with all the great products that have come out over the years. These cards were so easy to make and fun because once again I broke out my sewing machine and went to work I have to say I am hooked on this whole sewing thing. I used the great IPPITY Kit called Just Wanted To Say it is a must have to have a great sentiment set in your collection for card making. I also used cardstock stickers and flower stickers all from Sassafras. I hope you enjoyed and Everyone have a wonderful Christmas!!!
FYI Patti over at Paper Maniac just got the two new Basic Grey Collections in if your looking to spend your Christmas money!!! I love them and the embellies that go with them are awesome!!

I am sharing two cards with you today I can't ever just make one only because I love Unity so much!!!

I can't believe it's only a week until Christmas I hope you are all getting your Holiday projects done. I know I have a few things left to do and I will probably wait until the very last minute to do them. For the first card I'm Sure you all know that it's IPPITY stamps I had won this paper from GCD Studio a few weeks ago and just got it yesterday so I had to quick use it on at least one Christmas card I love the paper some many great patterns and textures. I added a couple of these Making Memories pins to the ribbon I really like this embellie it adds that little something to your ribbon that I just love. The second card uses the new Scrapbook and collage kit for this month I love it but that's no surprise I don't scrapbook and I think it could be used for both scrapbooking and card making. The sentiment is from the IPPITY set called Just Wanted to Say all the sentiments in this set are great you can never have to many sentiments in your stamp collection and this is perfect!!! The Dp also came in this kit and this is some yummy SassaFras paper I love how they do the decorative edge on the bottom of their paper such a neat idea. Sorry I never talk this much so I will let you go check out the rest of the awesome and talented Unity customers. TFL!!! Have a great weekend!!

Happy Tuesday

Well it was not to long ago that I discovered another great digital stamp company and it's called Softpencil. Elizabeth has a nice variety of beautiful digital stamps that I love and as soon as I saw this cutie with her kite and dog I had to have it. The Dp is some new My Minds Eye paper pad that I found at Hobby Lobby yes there is a new Hobby Lobby but the bad news a pain in the neck to get to and it's over an hour drive 2 hours if you get stuck in a snow storm on the way home. It was not fun so needless to say I probably will only make a trip once a year. So sad they had some really great stuff like this paper I got and many more that I have not seen anywhere else.The sentiment is from The new IPPITY kit called Just because and I love this kit alot of great sentiments along with a couple frame stamps. I am going to submit this also to the Challenge over at Papercraft Planet and the SoftPencil Challenge is to use one of there images of course but to also add layers to your creation.

The die cut is also from October Afternoon. I will be back Friday for FWF I love this day a whole lot of Unity inspiration.

Vintage Christmas

So I tried to make a vintage card and it came out ok but I know that I could have added a little something more to this card. All supplies are from Paper Maniac. Graphic 45 DP this paper has the most beautiful patterns and the tag is also form the same collection. I used a Jenni Bowlin Journal card these are great I distressed it and added a sentiment down in the corner although you can't see it in the photo is says Sending You Holiday Peace.

Two Scoops Tuesday


Today I am sharing another card set with you these are 4x4 cards I love this size card. The images are from Two Scoops Rice Designs I might have forgot to mention that I design for this fabulous company their images are so cute!!! Ok back to the card I used this set called Sweet Holiday Tag Set which is perfect for tags as well as smaller cards. I used October Afternoon DP. I colored these cute guys with my BICS only because the images are small and the tips on the bics are alot smaller than my Copics. For a couple of the images I did do some Paper piecing.
Make sure to check out Two Scoops Rice Designs here Renae has alot of great images!!!
