Hello Friends by Paper Sweeties

Hello friends,

I made this card for Paper Sweeties Inspiration #42.  I used the following products:

First I stamped the leaves in Antique Linen, then I traced the outlines with AquaBlend watercolor pencils.  Next, with a wet brush, I blurred the the outlines and went over the whole leaves for a soft washed out colors.  The brown bows is a die from Sweet Cut Stitched Tags #2.

Sadly, This is my last card for Paper Sweeties.  I've decided to step down from Paper Sweeties' Challenge Team.  Between my sons' baseball practices, swim meets and my classes, I don't have much time for crafting as I'd like to.  I'm so blessed to be in such a group of wonderful and talented ladies.  Thanks so much Debbie!

Hope you have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Reception Place Card


I have a fun project to share.  It's a wedding reception place card.  I simply die cut a piece of card stock using Crafter's Companion edge'ables Papillon.  

I had the idea of making this for my sister's wedding in September, but now I'm having a second thought after finishing one.  I can't imagine die cutting 150 of them :)

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

A Card with Vellum and Glittered Embossing Paste

Hello friends,

I made this card to join in PTI February Blog Hop.  All stamps and dies are PTI's: Meadow Green, Rosie Posie, Think Big Favorite #10, and Love Potion Die.

I hope you like it.  Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

Mini Photo Album Page


For a while, I really wanted to get into Project Life, but always feel intimidating.  Just recently, I've started a planner, just to track school and Cub Scout activities for my kids and add few pictures here and there.  Since I'm doing planner, it feels a bit easier to make a "faux" Project Life page :).  Here's my attempt at it.  I'm using the following Crafter's Companion products:

Stamp: Henna
Die: Die'sire Just the Ticket
Sparkle Pens: Solar Red, Emerald Green, and Moonlight

Thanks so much for viewing.  Have a great day!

Time to Party

Hello friends,

Today, I'm sharing a card made with a new product line by Crafter's Companion: Sparkle Pens.  Oh my goodness, these pens are AWESOME!  These glitter pens come in 18 colors and clear.  
I found that the lighter colors blend better than the darker ones.  I used the lighter ones to do shading on my mugs.  My pictures do not do these pens justice.  The shimmering is much more visible in person.   

Here are the materials I used on this card: 
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!
