"Oh Happy Happy Day" Spring Card

Hi everyone, here is my DT post for Timeless Twine, please be sure stop by there blog for more inspiration. I am so ready for Spring, as much as I love the four season's, I wish we could skip right over January and February.

I love the sunshine, my favorite color is yellow and I just needed to do something to brighten up my day. With that, I was inspired to make this happy day card, which was then sent to my sister to hopefully brighten up her day as well.

 I Knew I wanted to use the twine for the grass, just wasn't sure on how I would do it, but once I figured it out, it came together pretty quickly. Please watch the YouTube video below to see how I did it. Supplies used will be posted below and shown on the video.



Supplies used:

 "Oh Snap" Camera stamp set
 "Happy Days" stamp set

DCWV... 12x12 Collage Art paper pad

K&Company... Brenda Walton 4x6 paper pad and Julianne 4x6 paper pad

Colorbok... 12x12 Water Color paper pad

Love Bug... Valentine's Van of Treats

Hi everyone, it's great to be back designing for Cardz TV Stamps. Here is my first DT post of the year for Cardz TV Gallery, be sure to stop by and visit for additional inspiration from our wonderful Design Team. For today's project I made a super cool Love Bug Van, I used Cardz TV stamp set "Going Buggy" and I added some pink and silver Hershey's Kisses

I bought the SVG file for the bus in the Silhouette store... design #48867 , but there were many elements missing that I had to create on my own, the most important being the bottom of the candy box was incorrect and unable to hold the candy.

I did contact Silhouette Studio's customer service and they refunded me with no problem, just know if it's still there, that you will have to make the extra cuts on your own, unless they've since updated it. 

I personally think it's worth the effort, I love how it turned out!!! 


The papers used are from Paper Studio... Ooh La La 12x12 paper pad. The other supplies used are pink seam binding, black seam binding, black eyelets, black heart gems, mint enamel dots, heart punch and the heart with banner is from Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter 2". 

Happy Crafting!!!

Erin Condrin Planner "March" 2015

Hi everyone, for this post I will be doing something new. Bella Creationz has really awesome stamp sets for your planner, planNERD, planNERD 2 and Plan to be Fit. I have used a planner for many years, can't imagine trying to function without one, but I have never embellished or decorated it and I must say I really like it.

The stamps work perfectly, they help keep your pages neat and you can always stamp ahead, as you will see on my future posts. I will making a post for Bella Creationz and YouTube video for my planner every 6 weeks, so be sure to tune in.

I decided I would start with the monthly calendar for March, this way when I come back in 6 weeks, I can show you what I have embellished and planned for the weeks in that month. Be sure to see the YouTube video below, all of the supplies used will be shown in the video.

 March Calendar Month

Enjoy your day!!!

"Love" Valentine's Card

Hi everyone, glad to share with you my first DT post for Timeless Twine, this month is anything goes! Even though we just got over Christmas, I couldn't help but want to make a Valentine's shaker card. I cut the heart from SVG Cuts kit "For My Valentine", the word Love is from SVG Cutting Files "Love Ewe" and the arrow is from my SCAL 3 library.
I used the "Bubblegum Pink" twine and several colors of sequins "Metallic Poppy Pink", "Metallic Plum Purple" and "White Frost" from the Bella Creationz & Timeless Twine store.

This is my first shaker card and I had loads of fun making it, as silly as it may be, I did try to give it the illusion of the arrow piercing through the heart and releasing all of the sequins as though it were blood. I wrapped the heart with twine and also the edge of the card, tied a bow and then I put a pink enamel heart on top.
So please stop by Bella Creationz & Timeless Twine for a nice variety of awesome products just like the one's used below.


Happy Crafting!!!

"Inspirational" Altered Mini Clipboard

Hi there, so happy to share my first post as a DT member for Party Time Tuesdays,  for today's project I made an altered clipboard. With a long winter ahead of us, I thought I could use some warm inspiration for those gloomy and cold days. I bought the wooden mini clipboard at AC Moore, the back has a hole for a dowel so it can sit on my desk, then I could hang it later, if I choose to do so.

I love the pretty colors of the blues, tans and whites together, while sitting on a white rustic background. I used the inspirational tags from MME Cut & Paste "Presh" 6x6 paper pad. I added the flowers, lace  and butterflies to complete the project.

Please be sure to stop by Party Time Tuesdays for all kinds of inspiration and join in on their fun challenge every Tuesday "Anything Goes"!!!


Happy Crafting!!!
