Cute little pom pom's

I had a lot of fun making this card but that was over 2 weeks ago. I have since replaced the poms with something else as the fabric band at the top would not stay stuck to my redline. Any suggestions on how to make this 'gorjus' stuff stick on for good?

This weeks Challenge comes to us from Regan. Man those girls can copic color... I am so glad that this challenge came up because I have a whole set of copic ciao markers and I barely ever use them. I was even contimplating selling them...but not just yet. This is my attempt!

Don't forget to visit the girls and see what they did. Trust me you WANT to they are all AWESOME with copics compared to my mediocre attempts :)

3 x 5 Christmas trees

I love this stamp set! I picked it up at M's a few weeks back. I was getting bored with the standard 4.25 x 5.5 cards so I made these ones 3 x 5 and stamped the envies to match.

Thanks for peeking in today! Have a Great day and come back tomorrow for another week of Loonie Stampers Challenge!

Merry & Bright

I so wish I could have got the vintage labels set from Papertrey Ink but both times I have ordered in the last month it has been sold out. Getting ready for the craft fair I couldn't wait to do my ordering. Anywho, this card is cute without lines or dots around it and it was quick and easy as well!!

Thanks for peeking in today!

Seriously, isn't that handwritten Christmas sentiments to die for?

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This months blog hop is to show your Christmas schtuff! This is one of the things I have been working on for my gift lists this year. These little note card sets are FAB!

For this set I stamped black polka dots onto sweet blush paper and then constructed the template as per the instructions. Once I was done that I stamped text and polka dots alternately onto vintage cream card stock. Then I layered it with sweet blush and vintage cream to write on. As a finishing touch on this card (right) I added a strip of True Black Twill and punched out the circle from the wedding day stamp set.

The other card is much more simple with a band of text at the top and the same circle. Once I decided who is getting this beauty I will stamp the initials in the circles. Here is a few more that I have made as well......

Visit the Blog Hop Thread on the PTI Forum to check out some more crafty goodness!!


This card makes me hungry! Yup I am tired and that is all I have to

Thanks for stopping by, see ya tomorrow!

Simple Design Cards

So a few weeks back I got my order from SU and of course I had to get the ornament punch, so I made these quick and easy little guys to stick in another magazine folder thingy. Great Template from Lauren Meader!

I am afraid I am still waiting for my Papertrey order so I don't have anything that resembles aqua mist but I wanted to play so I substituted it for some enchanted evening.

Thanks for having a peek. See you tomorrow!!

LSC #63

Welcome to the Loonie Stampers Challenge again this week!
This weeks selection is from Char and she picked some fun and funky colors.

I must say I keep a very limited amount of orange on hand but I did happen to have this cute crocheted trim in my stash from an Etsy store. I thought it added a great touch to the decorated bag perfect for some holiday baking! I am making about 30 of these cuties with matching cards for the craft show coming in November.....

Thanks for stopping in to check out the LSC this week. Don't forget to visit the other ladies.

Plus if you play along with us please leave us a comment so we can come and check it out!
Have a fabulous week end everyone!!

Merry. Bright. Love.

Just a quick little guy I made from a sheet of die cuts!

I have so many cards to post that I am starting to double post a bit, Be sure to scroll down to my earlier post!

Blank Note Card Set

I have made up a ton of Lauren Meader's awesome and easy to use templates in the last little while. I figured if I sit and watch TV while cutting scoring and assembling that it would be handy to have them ready to decorate. I was right as I did 7 Sets in one night.

This is the first of the 7 that I did and it has eight 1/4 cards and envies! I did 4 each of 2 styles of notes. These are very fun to do and quick!

Thanks for peeking in see you again tomorrow!

This Year I Wish...

... That I had more time to make these! I had a lot of fun making this scrapbook (5.5 square) out of linen textured envelopes. I used a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit from Stampin up. I kinda {wish} that I had another kit, it went far. I made 3 mini albums 8 full size cards, 9 mini cards and I still have a fair amount left. Anywho, enough blabbing...go look at the rest of the album :)

I used four envies and the middle two I left the envelope flap out so I
could use them as pockets...LOVE how it looks.

Thanks for peeking in today!! See you tomorrow for some more fun Christmas cards using my scraps from this kit!!

LSC #62 - Fa la la la la

Hi people! This week is my selection and since I am completely obsessed with blue brown combos that is what I picked. I think that combo transfers to Christmas projects very nicely!! I kind of made the graphic match my project as well, he he he I find it very esthetically pleasing :)

ETA: I received a shout out for this project on the Best of the Blogosphere
at the Card of the Week Blog :)

I chose to use one of Lauren's template at Papertrey Ink! I bought this one when it first came out and did not even open the file until now! The template is so straight forward and simple to use with complete picture assembly guide to boot! How can you go can't so I made this one and 9 more shells ready for decorating.

I cant wait to see some more blue/brown Christmas goodness! Follow me around to the girls and see what they made :)

A little shout out
