Merci Beaucoup Shaker Card

| Merci Beaucoup, Shaker Card, Taste of Summer, Thank you card

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is a shaker card! I love shakers and all the glitter, sequins, seed beads and all the other embellies you can put in them. 

20160606_005808562_ios

The paper I used is CTMH Taste of Summer Paper and the stamp is CTMH also. The sequins I used are from Craft Medley and I got them on Blitsy.

I created this shaker card without a foam sheet or  double sided foam tape. For this shaker all I used were die cuts that I glued together. It came out so cute!

Happy Father’s Day Tool Box Card

| Box Card, Father's Day, SVG Cuts

Hi Everyone,

I started working on Father’s Day cards and love this little box card that is a tool box from SVGCuts. 

20160606_004626279_ios

I used my Anna Griffin Minc to silver foil the tools and I think they came out so cute.

I have even decided to personalize this little card by adding a name to the top of the tool box. I won’t add the personalized tool box here because it is still a surprise! 
 
20160606_004640553_ios


On the back is a space for a message and I add a tiny Handmade stamp. 

Both stamps I used are from CTMH. 

Do you want a little tool box card? I am still taking orders until the end of this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Explosion Box

| congratulations, explosion box, greeting card, thank you

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is an explosion box. I know, you probably already know how much I love explosion boxes! 

I think they are so fun and such a great way to say Happy Birthday Day, Congratulations or in this case thank someone for their service.

20160523_124901884_ios


There are just so many places to add pictures, thoughts of fun or inspirational memories and add special touches for the special person you give it to.
20160523_124844650_ios

The paper I used was the Jackson paper pack from CTMH. It is such great paper and went great with my little easel in the center.

20160515_151903870_ios
 I made a paper bag card and it is 4 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches. There is a ton of room inside for goodies and a sentiment.

Mini Album Monday: Exploding Envelope

| exploding envelope, Graphic 45, Heart Broken Designs, reverse mini album

Hi Everyone!

Today’s Mini Album Monday is an Exploding Envelope or Reverse Mini Album! The inspiration for this project was a challenge that Ana over at Lace Boutique 1 on YouTube is doing. 

20160425_104910493_ios

This Exploding Envelope/Reverse Mini Album is so cute. I love how the pages are not attached like in a regular mini album and there is so much room! I am sure I will stuff it even more once I start adding pictures and journaling!

20160425_105008821_ios

The paper I used was the Couture Collection from Graphic 45 and it is just gorgeous. The size is 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 and there are 5 tags and two envelopes.

20160811_201523640_ios

You can see my video response here along with the 2nd Exploding Envelope I created that was 10×13!


I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Cards with La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit

| CTMH, greeting card, La Vie En Rose, mother's day, Z-card

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project share are two Mother’s Day cards that I created with the La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit. The stamp I used was My Mother.

I really love this scrabooking kit. The paper is gorgeous and very versatile plus it comes with a bunch of goodies.

20160406_125103359_ios
 
My first card is a Z card and is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches when closed and a full 15 inches when open. 

I used the “Mum” my Mother Stamp but there is also a “Mom” stamp as well. I added some La Vie En Rose Flair on the front as well as a little black with gold ribbon. 
 

20160406_125121006_ios

The side of the card shows how dimensional it is and because it folds up so nicely and flat it is easy to mail. 
 
I added a stamped message on the inside but there is additional space on the inside for a special message or even to add a picture. 

 

20160406_125138538_ios


The second card I created is an A2 size card (4 in x 5 1/2). 
20160223_125425573_ios

This time on the front I created a bit of interest by using the designer paper in a different way by matting each strip. I also added the little gold hearts that are so cute.

 

20160223_125441315_ios


I left the inside blank on this card so there is lots of room for a special message. 

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Craft Your Passion Design Team Project- Blushing Bride Card

| Alicia Bel, Close To My Heart, craft your passion, Heart Broken Designs

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is my Design Team project for Craft Your Passion Challenge #308. 

Our sponsor this week is Alicia Bel and the image I selected was Emily (Zombie). 

This is my Blushing Bride Card! 

20160417_144337476_ios

I love this image! I didn’t color her up like a zombie even though I love zombie movies…but I am going to be coloring her up like a zombie the next time I use this image. The image is great and reminds me of a Tim Burton movie. 

20160417_144416961_ios

The paper collection I used was DCWV Happy Day stack. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs and added lace, doily, fabric covered buttons and a small bow for embellishment. 
20160417_144409890_ios

 
I did pop dot both my image and the second layer for more dimension. And of course I added some Wink of Stella and stickles for bling. 
 
The card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches and I left the inside blank so lots of room for a message.

Hello There Greeting Card

| crafty mom, CTMH, greeting cards, Zoe Paper Pack

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is a Z-Card. I love the dimension of a z-card and it has tons of space for writing your special message. 

This card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 closed and a full 15 inches when open. The cute little frog stamp is from CTMH Spring Critters Occasions and the paper I used is the Zoe Paper Pack.

I colored the little frog up with my spectrum noirs and added a little shine with Wink of Stella.


This card is embellished with ribbon and sequins. The sentiment I used on the inside is CTMH Sending Love Occasions.
