"Summer" Card Holder and "Thank You" Cards

Hi everyone, I want to share with you a project I made today, this project can be used as a gift set for a friend or to just keep for yourself. Summer time is usually pretty busy around here when it comes to parties, we've all thrown them and know just how much hard work goes into throwing one. So I thought it would be nice to have some "Thank You" cards made up to send to all the creative party throwers I know, for whose awesome parties I attended. It's my little way of showing just how much I appreciate all that they have done and for inviting me, which is always an honor!

In this case, with Summer coming to an end (so sad) I made the Summer 3d card holder to hold my thank you cards, but this can also be used to store all sorts of summer cards. I did make a 3d card holder for this past Spring, which are for my Spring cards, (previously posted)... so you know what that means, a Fall one is next in line, yippee!!!

This project is pretty simple to put together, although the TH die cut Seahorses did take a bit of time, I painted them, embossed them and used Rock Candy crackle paint! I used Cardz TV stamp set "Many Thanks" for the sentiment.

I hope you all enjoy and get inspired!!! :)

 Happy Crafting!!!

Live, Laugh, Love... Tag

Hi everyone, here is a tag I made using different elements of mixed media. It's been a while since I've played with my inks and sprays, I guess you can say I'm having a bit of a withdrawal, lol! So I decided to play for a bit and came up with this tag, which came together rather quickly. I used some molding paste on the heart, LSG sprays, Tim Holtz inks and various stamps.

I did a bit of a faux pas in the order of the words... love, live, laugh, should read...

Live, Laugh, Love

Live Well
Laugh Often
Love Much

(Oopsy Daisy)...nonetheless, I had fun playing, enjoy!!!

Happy Crafting!!!

School Days Tissue Box Cover

Hi everyone, here is my next DT project for Cardz TV Stamps. This is Challenge #6...Create a 3-D School Project. I had so much fun making this project, as a kid, I so LOVED going to school, my favorite subject was Math and my fun classes were Art and Gym... making this project just brought me right back to how much I enjoyed being there. I used Cardz TV Stamps... "Garden Greetings", "Picture This" and "School Days". I got the tissue box cover from SVG Cuts. I added many embellishments and as always added a little extra with the tag to make it my own. I used the apple from this cut on each side and cut a bigger apple for the front. What teacher wouldn't love to get something that's this fun and useful.

Please stop by Mary's blog and join in on this fun challenge at for a chance to win a Cardz TV stamp set of your choice! Looking forward to seeing your projects!
