Love ya Shaker Card

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in thDies R Us Store

I decided to go with a shaker for this card and the Neat & Tangled Heart of Gold die was just what I was looking for.



This was really simple to do. I simply used the die to cut out the heart shape from the center of my main cardstock panel.  I placed some acetate on the back of my card and surrounded the back with foam tape to hold all my shaker bits in. I placed a scrap piece of white cardstock onto the back to lock in the shaker pieces and to make it easier to place it onto my black card base. I used the Neat & Tangled Heart of Gold die once again and cut out a piece from some black cardstock to place on top of the window. I wanted the front of my shaker piece to have that fun geometric look to it. For my greeting, I used some white embossing powder and heat embossed this fun saying from the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamp set. I added some doodles around the edge of the card front and attached some sequins for a bit more interest. 



Here is a quick peek (with links) to the products that I used on my card today that can be found in the Dies R Us store:

Sketch N Scrap July's 2nd Card Sketch

Hey crafty friends!!
It's Thursday and that means it's almost the weekend!!! Woot Woot!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 

Here is a look at the second card sketch for July courtesy of Lisa:


and here is my take on the above sketch:


When I first looked at the sketch, butterflies immediately came to mind. I have no idea why but I went with it lol! I decided I wanted to have a soft color pallete to go along with the butterflies. When I came across the paper in the Cedar Lane paper pad from Pink Paislee, I knew they were perfect for what I had in mind for my card. I used some dies from My Creative Time for the stitched card mats and layered them onto my white card base and added a fun little scallop border. I die cut my butterflies using two different pink papers in the stack and added them onto my card. I cut a strip of vellum and added my hello. I cut my hello again from some fun foam and adhered it the the back so that I could pop up my vellum without any adhesive peeking through. I finished off my card with some glossy white Nuvo drops scattered here and there. I love how it turned out! 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I thought it would be fun to make a little gift/treat bag using the The Scoop stamp set.


I cut my bag out using my Cricut and assembled it and put it aside for a bit. I created a tag by cutting a piece of fun dotted cardstock from the Beach Babe paper pad and notching the end. I took another piece of cardstock and used one of the circles from the Stitched Circle dies to cut it out. I added it to my banner piece with foam tape. I stamped out that sweet little girl from the The Scoop stamp set, colored her in with my Copics and used the coordinating Scoop dies to cut her out. I glued her to the circle and added the greeting along the bottom. I cut out two holes in the top of my tag and attached it to my bag with some crochet thread. I finished it off with a few sequins scattered about.

PDE Challenges #182 Guest Designer

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!!
I am very happy to share that this week I am a guest designer for 


This week the challenge is....
Down On The Farm.

I decided to make a fun little box to hold some candy for the challenge.


I purchased this cute little chicken coop box from SVGCuttingFiles and put it all together, being sure to ink the edges of all my kraft colored cardstock. I decided my coop needed a chick so I used one of the cute little chicken stamps from the June 2017 Peachy Keen Stamps stamp club set. I added adhesive to one half of her and adhered her to the coop. I also used one of the sentiments in the stamp set to place over the doorway. I filled the inside with some paper shred and some mini peanut butter cups (candy was hubby's choice lol). I think it turned out so super cute!

Sketch N Scrap Layout #133

Hey crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a super Saturday!
Today I am back with another sketch reveal from Sketch N Scrap.
Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers Layout and Card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. Here is a look at the latest layout sketch provided to us by Heather, Layout Sketch #133.


Fun right? Here is my take on the above sketch:


Recently my hubby and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. Whoa!! The actual anniversary was during the week and he was working so we decided to celebrate it on one of his weekends off by keeping it low key and doing the movies and lunch. This picture was taken on that day out. There were a lot of colors going on in the picture so I printed it out in black in white for the layout. I used some papers from Crate Paper. Not sure which collection it is, it was a Hot Buy at Michael's a couple of years ago. I cut out that scalloped piece of cardstock with my Cricut as well as the hearts and title. I added a doodled border and some sequins/pearls to finish it off. The papers all have a vintage feel to them with some random spots and smudges so I kept that going with inking up the edges on my cut outs. I think it turned out so pretty and am so happy with it!! It's currently in my display stand in the living room so I can see it everyday ♡

Happiest of Holidays

Hey crafty friends!
Happy Friday!!
Any fun plans for the weekend? I'm not sure what we are doing yet but the temp is supposed to take a little tiny dip so we may be able to venture outside and enjoy a little sunshine lol!

I was able to make a couple of cards for some challenges and they are:

and


 Here is a look at the cards that I created:


I went ahead and made two cards, assembly line style while I had the supplies out. I'm normally not a big fan of my cards being exactly alike though so I did change them up a little bit from each other. 
I stamped out the elves from the Santa's Elves (MFT) stamp set and colored them in with my Copics. I used my Scan N Cut to die cut them out and set them aside. I built my card layers, added some crochet thread and the frames and adhered everything to my card base. I added my little elves and the cards were pretty much done. They were very quick to put together and now I have two cards ready to go for Christmas. Gotta love that ♡

Hey crafty friends! 
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday and staying cool.
Temps in my area are in the high 90's today with the heat index hitting around 106 degrees.
Too hot that's for sure! I happily stayed inside in the AC and did a little crafting. 
I was able to create a card today for the 


I decided to use that cute little shark from the Duh-Nuh stamp set. 
Now I know running into a shark wouldn't exactly be any kind of summertime fun but the beach is and if real sharks looked as cute and friendly as this one does than they might be fun lol.


I started out by creating a 4.25" square card from some white cardstock and layered it with some fun patterned paper from Doodlebug. I colored up my shark and popped him up with some foam tape and fussy cut those sweet little fish out and adhered them down. I stamped out my greeting and also popped that up with more foam tape. I finished off the card with some clear nuvo drops in the bubbles. Super cute and bright! Love it! ♡

They are:
and

Here is a look at the card that I made:


For some reason, as soon as I read the word "TALL" my brain immediately went to coffee lol! I pulled out some stamps/dies from Jaded Blossom and got to work. :) I created my tall and skinny card base from some white cardstock and added some kraft to the middle and some red polka dot strips along the top and bottom edges of the kraft. I die cut out my coffee cup and added some small red confetti hearts to the check boxes on the coffee sleeve. I stamped out my greeting onto some white cardstock, cut the edges off at an angle and popped it up with some foam tape. I finished off the card with some black doodling along the edges and some black crochet thread tied into a bow. Super easy and quick to put together...gotta love that!!  How fun is that sentiment??

Life Is Better In Flip Flops

*This post contains affiliate links, which means I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase using any of the links in this post (at NO additional cost to you). Thank you for your support!*

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I love the Sending Waves stamp set and couldn't wait to play with it again.


I love wearing flip flops! I pretty much wear them year round, so I knew I needed to make something with that image lol! I decided to make a little notebook that I can keep on my desk. It was really simple to create. I took a piece of bright green cardstock and cut it to 3.75"x 11" and scored it at 5.25" and 5.75". After that, it was pretty much just decorating it. I layered some fun graph style paper on top from the Beach Babe paper pad. I cut out a scallop from some white cardstock using one of the Scallop Border dies. I wrapped it with some ribbon and attached it to my graph-looking paper. I stamped out my flip flops from the Sending Waves stamp set onto some white cardstock and then again on the green so that I could paper piece it. I layered them onto a circle from the Stitched Circle Dies and then again onto another circle from the Scallop Circle Dies and popped it up with foam tape. I stamped out my greeting from the Sending Waves stamp set and used a die from the Stitched Greetings Dies to cut it out and also popped that up with foam tape. I finished off my cover with some pink jellies embellishments on the scallop. After my cover was completely decorated, I adhered a notepad to the back inside cover. 


I think it turned out so adorable and so bright and colorful! Perfect for summer!!

Sketch N Scrap #132

Hi crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a Super Saturday!!
Today I am so happy that I get to share with you my first post as a design team member for
Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers Layout and Card sketches each month! Cool huh? I know I need some layout sketches to get my rear in gear and actually get some pictures onto some layouts haha! You don't even want to know how far behind I am in my actual albums! A year or so ago I bought a stand that holds 12x12 layouts and I'm having fun filling that up with some single page layouts of some more recent photos (I was always a double page girl). I'm not worried about scrapping in order anymore, as long as I'm getting some done, I'm a happy girl now. Enough of my gibberish. 

Here is a look at the July 1st sketch courtesy of Lisa:

and here is the layout that I made based on the above sketch:


My daughter and her boyfriend recently went to one of those paint nights (I'm jealous) and so I created a layout for her to put into her album of them. I started out by using some older light blue cardstock that I had in my stash from awhile ago for my base. Following the sketch, I added strips at the bottom and top using some patterned papers from Echo Park and Bella Blvd. The green and yellow cardstock are from AC and the white cardstock is Georgia Pacific. I was inspired by the colors in the paintings on the wall and tried to pull from there. Once I had all of my papers adhered, I added my photos. I cut the paint splatters and paintbrush from an SVG by KaDoodle Bug out and put them onto my layout. I cut the title out with my Cricut and stamped the date. I finished off my layout with a few doodles here and there with my black Micron pen and some white Nuvo drops to act as paint drops. My daughter will be using the yellow and pink strip along the bottom to add her journaling about the night. I think the layout came out super cute and my daughter really liked it too :)

I created a square card base from some white cardstock and covered it with some striped patterned paper. I then cut out two of the scalloped squares, one in pink and one from white. I only used the negative from the white one so that it fit nicely in the pink one, kinda like a puzzle. I added a little frame using the striped paper and stamped my greeting. I colored my little piggy in with my Copics and added him to my framed area. I tied some crochet ribbon and popped up my framed piece with foam tape. The card was finished with some clear sequins. I love that little piggy holding the cupcake!! Oh so cute!!

I received this stamp for my birthday earlier this month and was so excited to use it! I've been wanting it for awhile now lol! Anywho, I stamped the books and then masked them so that I could stamp the chair behind them. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out my image and then I colored everything in with my Copic Markers. I stamped my greeting with some VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with some white embossing powder. I popped up my image with some foam tape and added a couple of puffy heart stickers (left over from Valentine's), added some blue baubles to the top right corner and called this card done.
