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.

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. 


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. 



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

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.



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!



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.

Craft Your Passion Design Team Project- Beautiful Marsailles Card

| craft life, craft your passion, crafting, crafty gal, crafty mom, CTMH, Diamonds Are Forever Flair, Marsailles

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project is my design team project for Craft Your Passion.

Our sponsor this week is Rick St. Dennis and the image I used was Marsailles.

I am absolutely in love with this image! I colored her up with my Spectrum Noirs and the only embellishment I added was a touch of matching sequins.

I created dimension by playing with my card layers and then I pop dotted the image.

The stamp I used is from CTMH and is the Diamonds are Forever Flair #C1629. This is one of my favorite stamp sets. 

Make sure to play along at Craft Your Passion. You can link up your project here:

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is the Thanks a Bunch Card.

I love this card, it’s so cute. The paper is Vintage Bliss from Simple Stories and the stamp is from CTMH.

I colored up the image with my spectrum noirs and added some wink of stella for some sparkle! I also added a bow and some sequins for embellishment and I popped up the image for dimension.

Here is a side view/inside view. I added a little strip of plaid designer paper from the same collection on the inside.

Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series- Project One: Instalife

| CTMH, easy scrapbooking, Instalife, mini albums, paper craft, scrapbooking

Hi Everyone!

Today is the start of the Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series with the first project being Instalife. Haven’t heard of Instalife yet? Well get ready because it is awesome.

The supplies I used for my project are:
CTMH Instalife Album
Memory Protector Mini 4×4
Memory Protector Mini 2×2
Colorful Me Cards
& Pictures of course!

Instalife is probably the best & easiest way to start scrapbooking. The cards are adorable and they don’t repeat over and over like some of the scrapbooking kits you get at your local craft store. 

Plus, the cards, the album and the memory protectors are not only high quality but you can create your entire album for about $23.00! That is a great deal!

The album I am creating today is for my niece who is turning 5 in April. Not only is my gift less expensive then I would have normally spent, it’s sentimental value is beyond measure. I am sure she and her parents will love it! 

Here is the tutorial for my Instalife Project:

Here are the supplies I used:

I hope this video inspires you to start scrapbooking!

Holy haberdashery, Batman!

| Close To My Heart, craft your passion, Cricut Explore, CTMH, Georgie Paper, Heart Broken Designs, Workshops on the Go

This is my first Design Team Project for Craft Your Passion and I am super excited! Today’s project share is a paper bag card for my nephew who turns 4 on January 10th. He loves Batman so that is the theme for his card. 

I know he won’t remember old school Batman and Robin with their sayings but I couldn’t help myself with the title!

This is a paper bag card so I am going to fill the paper bag opening side with temporary Batman tattoos. 

The paper collection I used is the Georgia Paper Pack from Close to My Heart. The image is from Digital Delights and is called Bat Brian.

I uploaded the image to my Cricut Explore to cut and then colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I did add Wink of Stella for some shimmer and added some Enamel Gems to the cover. On the mini tag on the inside I added a bit of Extra Thick Twine in Glacier.

You can get the Workshops on the Go/Georgie Paper Pack here:

I decorated the red heart balloon with Wink of Stella and added Glossy Accents to each balloon.
