Beware The Witching Hour!


Hi everyone! Fall is just around the corner and it's not too early to start thinking about Halloween! This is one holiday I love crafting for since there are so many great things to make! Decorations, costumes, scrapbooks and we cannot forget about the treats!

Nobody trick or treats at my house since we live way out in the boonies but I do have some nieces and nephews who so enjoy getting a handmade treat bag filled with goodies!  This charming set is all done up in the Simple Stories spooky "Spellbound' paper collection!


And what a great collection it is! Lots of dark colors and eerie images make this perfect for older kids and even adults! This pillbox was cut from a die and looks so awesome and scary embellished with paper and stickers from the collection! I even added in some glittery eyes to the skull!


This treat cone was so fun (and easy) to make. It only takes a 12x12 piece of patterned paper cut in half diagonally to create! This one has a paper handle and I dressed it up with a spider web looking die cut and lots of stickers from the collection. I even created a hanging charm with some of the stickers and then added in lots of paper curls! It holds quite a bit- there is a full sized candy bar in there along with lots of little treats!


Lastly, I made a bag topper from the spooky patterned paper and gave it extra flair using one of the 3x4 journaling cards cut into a fishtail flag. I layered on some more spooky stickers and paper curls before folding it half and attaching it to a plastic bag filed with goodies! As you can see from the pictures, I even dressed up the candy by wrapping them in small scraps of the collection papers!


Check out this great collection for some spooky and scary holiday decorating!

Life Is Sweet!


Hi everyone! I'm not the biggest ice cream fan... I would rather get the extra calories with chips or a cookie. But the newest Color Throwdown Challenge #455 really put me in the ice cream mood! 



I was inspired by not only the challenge colors but by the tissue paper and ice cream cone as well! I stamped an all over adorable ice cream cone image in the three shades and gave each a bit of glittery shine with tiny polka dots. 


The tiny hearts were stamped in coordinating colors along with the cute sentiment. I added a tissue paper border to the edge of the card and rounded two corners for a bit of interest! The final touch was the pastel enamel hearts in pink and turquoise.

Summer Bouquet!


Hi everyone! I don't know about your neck of the woods but here in Colorado it has been raining and raining and raining... This is not our typical hot summer weather and I needed some color to brighten up my day. A cute jar of pretty flowers was just the thing!




The jar of flowers was stamped first in Memento ink and then colored in with Copic markers. To achieve the watercolor background with the white border, I applied a coat of rubber cement over the entire image adding extra for the border. I let it dry completely before I added in my bright background color wash.



After the watercolors were dry, I slowly and carefully peeled off the rubber cement and then added in a few details with a white Signo gel pen. To make the colors really pop I mounted the watercolor paper onto a bright pink background and then onto a simple kraft card base. I added in some rustic twine and a few candy dots for accent along with a simple but sweet sentiment.

Doggy Loves!


Hi everyone! A fairly simple  and sweet card for today! This one was made with the two color combo for the Color Throwdown Challenge #454 with a few 'extras' thrown in!



I love dogs so I could not resist using one for my card. I kept my pup tan and white like the inspiration picture and gave hime a bright green collar! Since there was just a touch of blue in the photo, I decided to add in a bit of blue of my own.


I also added in a soft gray background to break up all of the white space and layered a pretty doily on top in bright green. The sweet sentiment was stamped in a coordinating green and I added in a bit more tan/brown with a small piece of twine and a few gems!

Blown Away!


Hi everyone! I recently bought my first Stamping Bella stamps. I debated because I would rather have clear stamps any day but these images are so adorable and so great to color! I have only stamped and colored the one but I think I'm hooked!



This card was made for the Color Throwdown Challenge #453.  A trio of super bright and happy colors that went perfectly with this sweet image! The majority of the card is in pink because... well who doesn't love a pink frilly dress?! I added in accents of the lime green with the front balloon and the tiny fishtail flag sentiment along with one shiny sequin in the same shade!


The yellow is highlighted with it's own balloon and with a tag at the bottom of the card as well as another lone sequin! I colored and shaded and colored and shaded the dress for that rich hue and gave her pink shoes to match! Of course I had to add one pink sequin too and lots of Wink of Stella for glittery shine!

2017 Monthly Mini: July!


Hi everyone! The end of the month means it's time for a new mini scrapbook on the blog and this one is a cutie! The 'Emoji Love' collection from Simple Stories is so adorable, fun and happy. Who knew emojis could be so cute and creative!


I was originally going to do an I-phone mini but changed my mind and chose to do an Instagram photo box instead. I filled it with sturdy tabbed pages in graduated sizes, layered with the fabulous paper from the collection and lots of fun ephemera and embellishments! There are a couple of pockets with tags, a fun pull-out and even a flip page in this mini!


The camera itself is a Silhouette file, the 3D Instant Camera Box, which gives you all of the pieces to make this chunky box. I cut them out of thin chipboard for sturdiness before covering them in the fun papers. For the front of the camera I added some of the cute stickers for accents!




These are the fronts of the pages inside the box......




And these are the backs.....




I have also made a short video so you can see this charming mini in action!

Sweet Ice Cream!


Hi everyone! I used to love when the ice cream truck came around in the summer. There were always so many good treats to choose from although I rarely strayed from my fudgesicle! These days, however, I would much rather make an ice cream card than eat it but I never turn down chocolate!


There is not a lot of stamping on this card but I think that makes the details really stand out. I used a nail polish marbled background that I made a while ago and chose complimentary card stock colors to match for the die cuts. Once all of the sweet treats were cut, I gave them all a good mist with a Perfect Pearl mist for pretty shine!

I created a combo of colors for the treats and mounted them onto the marbled background over a small strip of vellum. The only stamping I did for this card is on the vellum and then I embossed over it in bright pink! I added in lots of sequins and put a little detail on the inside too!

Supplies Used:
Assorted Nail Polish
Sequins: Papertrey Ink

Emoji Love!


Hi everyone! Talk about super cute paper lines... the 'Emoji Love' collection from Simple Stories is so awesome and fun and colorful! I had such a ball (LOL!) making this card set and know lots of people who would love this collection like I do!


I veered off the A2 track and made square cards for this set- it's always good to get out of the box and try something different! They are 4.5 " which leaves lots of room for all of the bright colors and fun details! Each card has a different solid colored base which is layered with the bright patterned papers from the collection.


There are so many great parts to this collection. The stickers, the bits & pieces, the chipboard.... and I used them all to decorate these charming cards! Each features at least one adorable emoji with super cute sentiment stickers as well as lots of fun embellishments!





I also used the beautiful patterned papers to make matching envelopes for each card. I just love coordinating projects but it would be fun to mix and match them too!


A large glassine envelope is the perfect container for this sweet set so you can see all of the goodies inside! I used the patterned papers and embellishments to make some cute decorations for the outside of the package too! This on-trend collection should definitely be on your to buy list!
