A Mother's Day Card!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I wanted to share the card I did for my mom and my husbands mom. I saw this card on Pinterest from a blog called Debby 4000 and had to replicate it! It's soo elegant, clean and beautiful! 

It was a huge hit with the moms! The great part is, I already had all the tools to make it!! That almost NEVER happens!! I always have to buy the supplies!!

The flower dies, leaves and branch are all Tim Holtz Small Tattered Florals. The oval die is the Spellbinders Floral Oval.

Here's the inside.

Hope you enjoy!!! I made one with blue flowers to for my sister but forgot to photograph that one.


You'll Be In My Heart Card!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters! I've been a busy little bee crafting away! Trying to make up for some lost time, hehehe. Here's another card created with my newest obsession, My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamps!

Super cute right!?! I saw the card design on Pinterest but used a different stamp for mine. I love Pinterest! SOOO much inspiration!!!

Here's a close up of the coloring. Not too shabby if I do say so myself, hehehe.

Here's the inside. I'm loving the new way I'm finishing the inside of my cards with the same layers as the front and the stamped image. I feel like it makes it more finished looking.

Hope you enjoyed!! I think she turned out pretty darn cute!!


You Have My Heart!!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I told you I'd be posting a lot! hehehe. During my downtime from crafting I feel in love with My Favortite Things Pure Innocence stamps! Man are they SUPER cute!!! I saw this card on one of my favorite blogs Airborne Wife Stamping and HAD to recreate it!!

I think it turned out pretty darn cute!!! I've never thought of creating my own paper until I saw Pam's card. The Kraft paper is all stamped with 3 different size paw prints!! Cute right!?!

The stamp has a dog in her arms normally but since I'm a BIG cat person I cut the dog out and replaced it with a cute cat stamp from The Greeting Farm that I altered a bit. Of course, I had to color her as a Ginger cat since both of my babies are Gingers!

he inside finished with a stamped image that was in the Pure Innocence set. I did it with Tim Holtz distress ink so it's a little hard to see but looks cute in person.

Hope you like! I gotta say, my coloring is getting sooooo much better! I love my Copics! I have ALL OF THEM now!!! WOO HOO!!!


Happy Cupcake Day Card!!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I'm back with another super cute card! So my obsession with Pure Innocence stamps continues, hehehe! I'm trying to learn different techniques that I'm not familiar with. I saw this amazing card on the very talented Airborne Wife Stamping blog and thought I have to try that!!

Pam is sooo talented! I've never done cards that have SOOO many layers and using different die cuts. It was crazy fun!! I think she turned out pretty good for my first try and such a detailed card.

Here's a close up. The dress was paper pieced, which was also something I've never really tried and totally love!!! There's a little Spica Glitter Pen on her cupcake frosting but it's hard to see in the picture.

Here's the inside finished with some of the same layers. 

I really hope you enjoy her as much as I do!! Thanks Pam for being such an amazing inspiration!!! 


A Sewing Machine!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I wanted to share a card I made for a very dear friend. This was for her to give to her teacher at Fashion Design school. I made it a while ago and realized I hadn't posted it yet.

It was made with a Cutting Cafe file. I love this file! It has soo many fun extras and you can even make it into a box! How fun!! I found the paper at an arts & craft store when I was living in Northern California.

Here's the sentiment on the inside. It turned out really cute!

Hope you like!

An Adorable Easter Card!

Hello fellow crafters!! Sorry, I have been M.I.A. for a little while!! I moved to Northern California, did some posts and then decided to move back to Southern California so it's been a major process! I know finally have my craft room set back up and am ready to get going!! WOO HOO!!!!

I spent 4 days at the Anaheim Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, took a ton of classes and did a TON of shopping and am ready to play! Hehehe. I also won one of the door prizes from one of my favorite booths and class instructors Kara at Krazy Kreations Studio. It's so funny, I was actually shopping in her booth right as they called my Golden Ticket number! It was meant to be! hehehe. I had SOOOO much fun and met a ton of awesome new people!!!

Sooooo…..here's the card I made for Easter.

I had soo much fun making this card! I've been practicing like crazy with my Copics and am definitely getting MUCH better! The design of the card was inspiration I found on Pinterest.

Here's a close up of the coloring. The bunny is a Verve stamp I had in my stash. I think he turned out pretty darn cute. A little darker than I had originally planned, but still cute!

I finished the inside with the same layers as the front and stamped the image again. I learned that from one of my most favorite blogs, Pam at Airborne Wife Stamping. I absolutely LOVE her creations and have learned a ton of mew things by following her blog! She's seriously fantastic!!

Hope you enjoy my card and be prepared to see a TON more from me!! I got the craft room finished and am finally feeling at home again so it's on! lol!!!


A Hauntingly Adorable Card!!!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! For this design team project for The Cutting Cafe we got to work with the super adorable Elisha Jean and Friends Sets. I choose to work with Elisha Jean and Friends Being Good Witches.

I used a few more Cutting Cafe Sets to create my sweet little Halloween scene. I used the Easel Card Template (which I LOVE!!), The 3D House Set for the tree, Garden Stand Ups for the sign and grass and Halloween and Fall Basic Shapes for the crooked fence, pumpkins, bat, moon and broom.

I colored the little witch Mikala Ann with Copics markers adding in a belt and some shading. This is my first Copic coloring that I have shared as I have been teaching myself how to use them properly. Who knew you couldn't just color with markers!?! I think the coloring came out pretty good!

I added some fun little rats with glitter on them and put one in my little witches hand after I cut the broom out of her hand and lots of Stickles accents throughout.

Here's a close up of the sign. I found the tombstone sag through a google search.

Here's a side shot so you can see the easel.

I really hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed making it!! I think it turned out pretty darn cute!!


A Moustache Box!!!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! Here is my project for the design team at The Cutting Cafe!! I choose to work with Post It Note Box and Cover Set! When it comes to the stationary type projects I like to stick with a more masculine aesthetic. I like to think that if I had a need for a stationary set it would definitely be more masculine and made from wood. So here it is!

I used a wood grain paper and a burlap ribbon to keep everything together. I also used some stickles to make it look like there are rivets around the outside of the lid.

I used a navy pinstripe paper for the covers of the post it notes and choose to use the included PDF file to print the wraps with the pre-printed words.

I think it turned out pretty darn cute! I hope you like! Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog and check out the other projects by the design team members. If you leave a comment you could win 3 free files from The Cafe!!!

Christmas In July!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! For this round of projects for Regina at The Cutting Cafe we got to do Christmas in July!! Who doesn't love Christmas is July!?! I found it a little difficult to get in the Christmas spirit though since it has been soo hot lately!! hehehe.

I choose to work with the Assorted Pop Up Cards file at The Cutting Cafe. This is a SUPER cute file as it has tons of pop up cards to work with!! There's flowers, cakes, presents!! It's awesome!!!

I got to raid my Christmas paper which was fun and used an embossed plaid paper with a metallic gold.

I also used the Loopy Loopy Bow file from the Cafe which I LOVE using!! You can re-size it for soo 

Here's the inside of the card with a fun Christmas carol paper. Again, I use the Loopy Loopy Bow file for these little bows. That was a little harder since my hands are huge and I sized them super small! But they came out pretty cute!
