August Christmas Kit Cards Revealed

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I loved making up your card kits this month.  I stepped things up with a slightly more elaborate card and another that is good for bulk card making sessions.  What do you prefer? Intricate and a bit more time consuming, or quick and easy?

This month's cards used the Oh What Fun stamp set.  So many great sentiments in one set!


I love this tree design in the Be Merry DSP pack.  I think I'll be using a lot more of it...


Tracing a circle first helps form this wreath.  Yep, each leaf is individually stamped!


Ready for the release of the September kits?  Just two more days to go...!

Happy crafting,

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Debbie Henderson

Sunday, August 27, 2017


Debbie Henderson's gorgeous creations are the theme for the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop today.  We CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of her designs and then you can hop from one blog to the next seeing what we all came up with.

Here's the design I have based mine on:


And this is my card based on that: 


Have you got yourself some of the double stitched ribbons yet?  They are gorgeous!  You can flip them on either side so you get two pretty ribbon designs from the same product.  Bonus!


The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.  It's so pretty with its cursive writing and fit so well at the top of my card.

Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop - 3D theme

Saturday, August 26, 2017


Who doesn't love a good 3D project to get your teeth into?  The Ink It! Stamp It! design team have a whole bunch for you to check out in our blog hop this month.

My project is a matchbox card.  I keep seeing them on Pinterest and thought they were so cute that I wanted to make my own.


I cheated a little bit and used a pre-made box, well, a matchbox actually.  I wanted to show that you don't have to spend hours to make a good 3D project and that it's OK to use what you have around home.


Doesn't it make the cutest little baby gender announcement?  The clouds were made by punching out a shape from the Pretty Label Punch and then sponging around them several times.


What would you put inside a little matchbox card if you were to make one?

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Martha Inchely

Sunday, August 13, 2017


Blog hops come around so quickly these days!  Good thing I love 'em!  Today the Crazy Crafters are hopping with Artisan Design Team member, Martha Inchley.  Here's the project of hers I've chosen to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit):


I've taken it and made it into a happy new home card for the people who just bought one of the units in my block:


I love this set!  It's so versatile.  I drew the line on the bottom with my Basic Black marker just to give the little car some grounding.
