30 for Her 30th

“30 Cards for her 30th Birthday” he said. I received an order from a friend for his girlfriend Jill. I never thought that making that many cards in a two week period would have been possible! It was such a great challenge. I had a list of things she likes and enjoys then went for it.  I honestly think I  do my best work when I am given specific requests, especially thematic ones.

I used a mix of collections, embellishments, stamp sets and trim for the cards. I hope you enjoy!

Treat Bags for Halloween

Hi all,

I decided to make some treat bags this Halloween season with some bags from Michaels. These are purple polka dot bags and I made the toppers with my Spellbinders die, Labels 4 and Lotus Pendent in black card-stock. The layers were cut out using October Afternoon’s Witch Hazel Collection, I just alternated patterns and used the largest and second largest die for this particular layering.

I topped the baggie off with some Halloween bakers twine and a punched out stamped image from a Walztingmouse stamp from the set: Midnight Feast

A simple, flat/wrapped chocolate or small cookie would work best inside.zTreat bag sample

Card for Mom

Hi all!  I’ve been working so been away from the blog for a while.

But I’m back here to share one of my latest creations using the following supplies:

Papertrey Inc. – Spring Hills Stamp Set

Memory Box Die: Breezy Wreath

Tim Holtz Distress Markers: Colored different pieces of stamp landscape in different colors

Bakers twine: Marigold

Paper Collection: Secret Garden, G45

Viva Pearl Pen: Pearls around the wreath

Button: Recollections

Spellbinders Die: Nestabilities Labels 10, Fancy Tags 2

Waltzingmouse Stamps: Sweethearts (With Love)

The sentiment “Find Beauty in Each Day” was done on a square punch from Michaels and I just tucked it under the layers on the card so you only see the bottom half. I also snuck in some vellum paper that has flakes of iridescent circles. In the light, it shines as well as the little sheep and their fleece that I added white glitter to!  🙂  ♥

I took patterned paper, some heart embellishments (punched out and adhesive ones) and went to town. Added a little baker’s twine, washi tape, clay flowers and voila! Some minty fresh treats for those you adore.
