New Stuff :)

I recently won the cartridge WALL DECOR AND MORE on ebay (for a great price) and I LOVE IT!!! What an awesome cartridge! My next post will be a card or layout using Wall Decor & More...
The pink Bone Folder by MS was just too cute to pass up when I was at Michael's yesterday; I just HAD to have it. I mean, look how cute it is... it even has bling on it (that's why I put the close-up picture in this post - you just have to see the bling :)

Class Project

This is a quick and easy project I made for our upcoming Technique Class. I used Plantin Schoolbook and Paisley cartridges. The rim was created with a Martha Stewart punch - but I can't remember the name. Heidi Grace paper, A Little Birds Tale line, Paisley design; Bazzill blue card stock. The kit includes the items in the photo - ready to assemble! The photo on the right is :)obviously:) the finished project:) If you would like the cut file send an email to me!

Thank You For Being You...

There are so many wonderful people on the message board, so they all were the inspiration for this card.The patterned paper is left-over pieces of the Paper Studio Meadowsweet line, ribbon from JoAnn's, bling from Hobby Lobby, Bazzill cardstock from Michael's, Cats Eye inks, and sentiment from Stampin' Up. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Happy Anniversary

I made this card for a friend of my husband's. I used the MS Trellis Punch, and everything else is from scraps. (I have no clue what vendors are represented here:) I do remember the lace was from JoAnn's and the key from Hobby Lobby. Thanks for looking!

I loved the Butterfly on the kit layout (see older post), that I just had to make a card using it. The butterfly is from the Tinkerbell cartridge. The paper is Paper Studio, Meadowsweet line. I cut the pink layer of the butterfly on pink Core-dinations paper, using the lighter side for the butterly; the darker textured side I used to punch the bottom layer of the flowers. The top layer of the flowers were punched from Bazzill String-of-Pearls. I used an EK flower punch tocreate the flowers. The brownish shadow layer of the butterfly is cardstock from Hobby Lobby, and as they don't mark their cardstock, I have no idea who the vendor is or the name of the color. It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but I outlined the pink layer of the butterfly and the top layers of the flowers with Sakura Gelly Roll pen "Clear Star". The sentiment is from Stampin' Up (love their stamps), stamped with Cocoa Brown ink. I edged with Cats Eye pink and light brown inks. The inspiration for this card is Jeannie Phillips, a designer who contributes to the message board. If you haven't visited the site, you should do so right away - there are so many talented people on the board that share their creations every day. Jeannie is an awesome designer and a beautiful Christian. She is a delight! Stop by the message board first chance you get!

Scrapbook 2-page Layout Kit

I have started designing Scrapbook Page Kits, and this is my first creation. The gorgeous butterflies are from the Tinkerbell cartridge! I outlined them with the Sakura Clear Star gel pen - they really glimmer and shine! On the body of the butterflies I adhered 3 pearls for a touch of elegance. The butterflies and photo mats are all pop-dotted (doesn't show up in the photos). The kit includes everything you need to re-create this layout - down to the tiny little brads in the flowers! (Adhesive and pop-dots are not included.) As a special perk, I am also including a Sakura Clear Star gel pen with each kit. If you would like to order this kit, email me at

This is a close up of the butterfly, so you can see the sparkle!
I LUV this butterfly, and I am going to scraplift
my own design to make a card :)
