3 Christmas Cards




Hello! I have three very simple Christmas cards to share with you today. They are for a project my sister is working on. : ) They are pretty basic, as you can see...a printed background and stamped image in front. Lots of blogs out there are doing Christmas in July, so maybe this fits right in! Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Red and Tan Christmas Card


Hello! I have another "vintagey" (if there really is such a word!) card to share with you today. I used the same gingham background stamp I used in my last post. I stamped it with brown ink on craft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on seam binding and used Spellbinders dies for the snowflakes. I distressed the tag with tea dye ink, too.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Clearly Inspired Challenge #15: Gratitude


Hello! Here is the card I created for this month's Clearly Inspired Challenge. I really wanted to give the card a vintage look and ended up using a lot of pink and brown. The green crochet flower gives it just a little pop of color. Supply list: craft card stock, Rouge chalk ink by Color Box, tea dye distress ink by Tim Holtz, buttons, and ribbon. Stamps used: Gingham background from The Angel Company; flower from My Mind's Eye (LOVE this stamp!!), tickets from Studio G, thank you sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps, and vintage note block from See d's. I made the green flower myself; you can see more about that here. : ) I use embroidery floss to crochet them. You can make them in any color!! Love it!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!

DRS Designs July Sketch Challenge!



Hello! I made this card for the DRS Designs July Sketch Challenge. The roasting marshmallow is a DRS Designs stamp; background and sentiment stamps are from Inky Antics. I used chalk around the marshmallow to give it that campfire "glow." (It might be kind of hard to see in the photo.) I also added some stickles to the marshmallow and to the fire; sponged the edges of the layers with white ink. Thanks for looking and have a super day!

Delight in the Day Layout



Hello! I have another scrapbook page to share today. These photos are from last summer....just got around to scrapping them yesterday! This was a pretty quick page to complete. The sticker "Delight in the day" is from Deja Views. The calendar stamp is from CTMH and the background paper is from The Paper Studio. Love the bright blue colors of this layout in person. : ) Thanks for looking and have a delightful day!

Fourth of July Layout


Hello! Here is a Fourth of July layout I made today. I scraplifted the design from a page I saw on the Scrapbooks, etc. online gallery. I cut the word "happy" using the Tear Drop cricut cartridge. I stamped the word "fourth" with blue ink. All papers are from The Paper Studio. Thanks for looking and have a super day!

Scrapbook Layout "Do-over"


Hi! Today I am sharing a re-do of a layout I did a few years ago. We all have them, I'm sure...you look at a layout and just go 'ugh!' That's how I felt about this one. I don't have a 'before' pic; sorry about that...but believe me, you wouldn't be impressed!! I used the Graphically Speaking cartridge for the word "play" and the flourishes.

The family picture, including our lovely lab named Pearl, was taken on 7-7-07.

Thanks for looking and have a super day!

Summer!

Hello! Nothing paper crafty to share today (yet, anyway!) but I wanted to capture some photos of my flowers. The growing season here in MN is quite short, so I enjoy it while I can.



I didn't have to plant any of these beauties. Last year I planted marigolds and moss roses in this area and this year they reseeded themselves--I just left everything there in fall and let nature take its course. There's even a snapdragon growing there that is shades of orange and yellow.



My little 12 inch sunflowers...love these!



My hanging basket of pretty red petunias....


And finally, this pretty container of fuchsia...I've never planted this before, but it seems to be doing well. Thanks for looking...enjoy your day!
