Bring on the Snark!

| Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hello Friends!

I am back with my first blog post of 2020 and what better way to start then with some snark!

Here is a card I whipped up for the “H is for Headache” challenge over at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers.

This is a 4 x 5 1/2 inch card. The paper I used was DCWV Vintage Collector. I also used a vintage image from the Hungry JPEG.

I added dimension using pop dots and embellished with sequins, a paper clip and a button.

I added more snark on the inside of the card!

I hope you like my 1st sassy card of the new year. You can find all of the snarky craft challenges for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers here:

Sew Crafty

| crafty gal, crafty mom, Cricut Explore, Graphic 45, Sewing, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hello Friends!

I’m back with an adorable mini sewing machine!!! I just can’t get over how cute it is and love that it also has a little box on the bottom where you can add goodies or small items.

The sewing machine is actually an SVG from the Cutting Cafe called the Sewing Machine Kit and you can find it here.

The paper collection I used is from Graphic 45- Time to Celebrate. It is an older collection but is just gorgeous.

I embellished my little machine with dimensional pearl pop dots, a rosette embellishment, thread and tulle.

I thought this sewing machine would be perfect for the “R is for Rip” challenge over at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers. I immediately thought of sewing when I read rip… well okay maybe it was my second thought lol.

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


Sand Pail Treat Holder

| crafty gal, Silhouette, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hello Friends!

It seems like everyone I know is going on vacation so I whipped up this super cute sand pail treat holder.

The cut file for the Sand Pail came from the Silhouette Studio. It is called the “Sand Pail Shaped Box” by Lori Whitlock. It was super quick and easy to put together.

I cut an extra piece of the front of the pail to make an insert to add a sassy message. Right now my little pail is filled with white glitter tulle and some ticket stubs but I plan to add some treats.

I decorated the pail by inking the edges, adding some layers with a star, ticket stubs and tag. On my tag I stamped “Vacation 1 Mile,” which is a Close to My Heart Stamp called the Long Way Home. Lastly, I added a cute Good Times button and a tiny clothespin.

This is also my project share for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers: S is for Sea! I would love to be lounging on the beach right now!

Sassy New Mommy Cards

| craft life, crafty gal, greeting cards, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hi Friends,

Today I am sharing two cards I made for the B is for the Birds & the Bees Challenge on the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers blog. I found this fun blog a few weeks ago and I just love making cards with a little sass.

Both of the cards I made are pocket cards and they measure 5 x 5 inches each.

I added blank tags on the inside with lots of space to write a message.

The images I used are vintage images I found on Pinterest. I added a bit of sass in the messages on each card.

The paper collection I used was the Petticoats & Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock/Echo Park.

I decorated each card with a flower cluster, tulle and pearl dots.

Lastly, I created dimension by adding pop dots to multiple layers of each card.

This was a fun challenge and you can still play along at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stamper blog here.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my cards!


Scrapbook Love

| craft life, crafty gal, paper craft, scrapbooking

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout I created for my youngest nice. I love scrapbooking memories and gifting memory gifts so this is the start of her album.

I absolutely love how dimensional this layout is and her pics are just so stinkin’ cute.

The paper collection I used was Sweet Girl by Lori Whitlock. I used some of the stickers that were included for embellishment. I just added them on top of white card stock, then fussy cut them out and pop dotted them for extra dimension.

This is also my layout for the Bows & Tassels Challenge for The Studio Challenges. You can still play along and can find the challenge blog here.

Ocean Dreams

| card making, craft life, Crafting from the Heart

Hi Friends!

I have another card share for you today. I busted out my Santoro Gorjuss stamps and used the By Air Mail Stamp of this beautiful mermaid to create an under the sea card.

I’ve had my Gorjuss stamps for awhile and this was the first time I took one out and actually used it. They are so pretty I almost don’t want to open them!

The card is 6 x 6 but I added additional dimension by adding a 2 additional layers on the top.

I also added some seaweed, tulle and ribbon thread for embellishment. Lastly I used glossy accents and stickles & sequins to add a ton of shimmer.

I think I’m going to mail this card to my niece for her birthday but haven’t finished her memory gift yet so it’ll be a little bit before she sees it.

I also linked up this card to the Crafting from the Heart/ Anything Goes Challenge. There’s still time for you to enter and you can find that blog here:

Whatever Life..

| Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hello Friends!

I have a super EXTRA card to share with you today. I found a new blog with weekly challenges and they are snarky and fun. So today’s project share is a card I made for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers Challenge #137- M is for Menopause.

I made a slim easel card that measures 3 x 6 inches. I added extra dimension by adding an additional 3 x 6 layer card on top and popped it on top diagonally.

I used a Housewife Image I got from Hungry Jpeg and the paper collection is a combination but mostly papers from Fancy Pants Designs- Flutter Collection.

There is space on the inside for more “snark” and to write in a message. The card fully extended measures 3 x 12 inches.

If you’d like to enter the challenge, there is still time and you can find this oh so awesome blog here:

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thanks so much for stopping by.


Instant Smile In A Cup: Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

| card making, Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, craft life, crafty gal, greeting cards

Happy Friday!

I have a fun project share for you today which is also my card for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.

The theme was Spring/Summer and although the lady in the image I used is wearing a sweater I am positive it’s probably because its cold inside the coffee shop.

I created a 6 x 6 card with a gorgeous image from Krista Smith. You may love Krista’s designs as much as I do and remember her designs as Saturated Canary. The image I used is the Once A Month Image April 2019. You can find it in her Etsy Shop: Shop Krista Smith here.

The paper collection I used is from my very own collection, Magic Bean and you can find that here.

I colored up the image with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted the card to be dimensional so added a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and 5 x 5 layers on pop dots and then an oval cutout for the image with more pop dots.

The sentiment stamp I used “Instant Smile in a cup” is from the Greeting Farm, Mini-Remix Brewtiful.

Lastly, I embellished the card with some gold sequins and a tulle bow and brown cord bow.

I really enjoyed coloring up this image and making a card with less embellishments but more dimension with all the layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Halloween Pocket Tag Mini Album & Mini Ghost Pinata

| Halloween, mini albums

Hello Crafty Friends!!

I have a brand new tutorial for you that you can use for your Halloween goodies or really anytime of the year.

It is a Pocket Tag Mini Album that has a ton of space on the cover to fit goodies as well as two pockets on the inside. There is also room for you to add flaps or additional pockets inside or on the back.

Of course because it’s Halloween I wanted to get right into adding something a little spooky and added a tutorial for a Mini Ghost Pinata. I think this may be how I send treats to my nieces and nephews this year since it is cute enough to give as a gift but small enough that it isn’t too much candy!

You will find the full tutorial below as well as SVG’s you can use in your die cutting machine and PDF templates for the tags you can cut out as well.

Download a Zip File with the SVG & DXF File Tags by clicking here or by clicking on the tag picture below.

I hope you’ll try this project!
