Hang in There

I made this card for a special person who is having to practice some patience while waiting to hear back from a job application. It seems that with most things the hard part is “not knowing.” I used Lawn Fawn’s Hang in There stamp set because they are being extremely sssslllloooowwww in getting back to him. IMG_8033


Clean and Simple Birthday

I used three different My Favorite Things stamp sets for this simple birthday card. I did some masking and coloring and added some wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I really love how it turned out. CAS cards are usually hard for me because I don’t like a lot of white space, but a lot of space seems to work for this card.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Halloween Card featuring LaLaLand Crafts

Here is the process video for card #1 in my 2017 Halloween card series. I’m not sure how many Halloween cards I’ll be able to make between now and October 31st, but I decided I had better get started or else I’ll blink and Halloween will have done been and gone.

I’m not a big fan of Halloween, and the only person I actually send Halloween cards to is my sister. But they are so much fun to make, and I do have a few Halloween themed stamps and stamp sets I need to use; like Sitting Cat Marcie. I picked her up back in March when I found her on sale at a scrapbook store in Tennessee.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Be Blessed!





Hilarious Voiceover

There’s this trend going on where women/girls get their husbands/boyfriends/fathers to do the voiceovers for their makeup tutorials. After watching (and laughing) at some of these video I thought it would be fun to make a card process video and have my hubby do the voiceover for me. He was an awesome sport and the result was pure gold! Hope you enjoy!

Nontraditional Father’s Day Card

I saw this fun digital image on Kenny K stamps and thought it would make a cute Father’s Day card for my hubster. Sadly, Kenny K will be shutting down its digi store on the 30th of this month, but all of their digital images are on sale for $1! I stocked up on the images I’ve been eyeing for a while. 😀

I colored the cute little policewoman with my Spectrum Noir markers. The shiny foil papers I picked up at the Dollar Tree. I learned that liquid glue does not adhere very well to the foil, so I had to use some double-sided tape to hold everything together.

Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope you were inspired to try some nontraditional cards yourself. Be Blessed!

Birthday Boy

img_3289It never fails that birthday parties pop up when I’m swamped with “adult” responsibilities and can’t take the time to make a card. This year I decided to build up my “stash,” so when my kids get those last minute birthday party invites, I’m not rushing to the dollar store to pick up a card.

I’m also entering this card in the Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday Challenge and Tupelo Designs LLC Birthday Card Challenge.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me today.

Superhero Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Saturday my kids are going to a birthday party for a little boy who is turning two. This kid’s dad is a HUGE Batman fan, so I used the MFT stamp set Super Boy and watercolored his outfit to resemble Batman’s. I really like the layout of this card and wish I had enough foresight to actually plan my layouts in advance. Instead I pick random papers I like and just start cutting and scattering the pieces until I come up with something I like. Ha ha…

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today. Be blessed!


Christmas Flamingos

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. I’ve been meaning to, but life happens. Anyway, I did want to share this Christmas card I made. I loved how it turned out because I love the look of colored pencil on craft card stock. I did two layers of color with my Polychromos to try and get a more intense color.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today! Be blessed!!IMG_1761.JPG

SBC DT: artbymiran

I am so excited to be in my very first video hop! This month the Scrapbook Blessings Club is being sponsored by artbymiran. This lady is truly talented and has over 300 images that are super adorbs!!!

I may have mentioned a time (or two) that I just love to color. However, I have had a few people tell me they stay away from these types of images because they don’t like to color (gasp!), so I challenged myself to make a card proving you can still make cute projects with these images with no/minimal coloring.

The link to artbymiran’s store, as well as the details about the hop and giveaway can be found in the description box of my video.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Pumpkin Spice Everything!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

It is officially Fall! (Insert loud cheering here!) And that means Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!!! Mmmm…I love me some Pumpkin Spice. Pumpkin Spice lattes. Pumpkin Spice cheesecake. I’m currently on a “lifestyle change,” I refuse to use the “D” word, so my Pumpkin Spice is limited to scented candles and coffee themed cards. Here is the link to the video detailing how I made this card. I hope you enjoy!

Be Blessed!!
