09.29.2017...Happy Birthday!....Wood Textures & Colorful Season....


Oh my gosh....how sweet is this!

Truthfully, the Wood Textures DSP stack did most of the work for this card.....gotta love this paper!

The "Happy" was cropped from the Happy Birthday Thinlet Die.  The leaves from the Colorful Season Bundle.....and the "Birthday" from the Labeller Alphabet.  

Easy peasy!  And such and AWESOME fall card!

9.28.2017....Life Is Short....Live It With Zest....


I could not agree more with the message on this card!  And I love the fun contrast of colors on this card too!

I used the Lemon Zest Bundle on page 90 of the Annual Catalog.  The coordinating punch makes creating this card a snap!

And the simple black and white Pick A Pattern Washi Tape is the perfect contrast for the background!

9.27.2017...You Make Me Happy ....Little Piggy....



Doesn't this card make you smile!  I LOVE it.

It features the new In-Color Berry Burst.  It is so fresh and crisp paired with Whisper White.  And the subtle wood embossed background adds just the right amount of texture without being overwhelming.

9.26.2017....You're The Best ....a quick and cute card...


I was designing cards for my Quick & Cute Saturday card class and this is one of the cards I came up with.

I wanted something that could be used for male recipient that was more than a simple thank you card.

This is very simple in design but I think it has a big impact!

The colors I chose were Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and Whisper White.

The products I chose were Pick a Pattern washi tape found on page 195, star punch, and Watercolor Words stamp set found on page 136.

9.25.2017...Happy Fall....And Some Scrapbook Layouts...

Yep...it has arrived....Fall.

My most favorite season of the year!
Cool temperatures, but not cold; we don't need heat or air conditioning....just crisp, bright days with all the beautiful fall colored leaves.

And with the new season means more time for paper crafting for me.

Here are a couple of scrapbook layouts I made with some old photos I found.

Hope you like them.
 This first one features my three step sons when they were little.  They are all grown men now....eek...aren't they cute!

And this second one features my granddaughter Brielle when she was just a baby.  She was 6 in May.....such a cutie then and such a beauty now!

I love it every time I open one of my boxes of photos.....it is a trip down memory lane.  I don't know if I will ever get my photos put into scrapbook pages....but I will plug away at it....LOVE MY PHOTOS and SWEET MEMORIES!
