Tweet Me...Just Because

Hi everyone, here with a DT project for Cardz TV Gallery. Today I decided to make a card using the Cardz TV stamp set "Critter Punnies". This "Tweet Me" card is great to have on hand for when you want to reach out to someone, this sentiment is just perfect for that.

Now that Spring is finally here and we can all come out of hibernation, I will probably make a few of these and send them out to those I haven't seen all winter long.

I cut the bird cage out of the April Showers Cricut cartridge and I used the label die from My Craft Spot. The papers are from Teresa Collins "Save the Date". To finish the card, I added some rhinestones and polka dot ribbon.

Enjoy...

Memorial Day BBQ - Tabletop Decor

Hi everyone, it's time to share a fun project that I made for my Memorial Day weekend BBQ. Today is "Move it Monday" on the Timeless Twine blog, so I had to make a project that moves. Well that challenge helped inspire my idea for creating some spinning pinwheels.

Memorial Day weekend is perfect for cookouts and as always that's what we do here at home. I love decorating as much as I love creating, so when the holidays come around, I have so much fun putting it all together.

I used the Key Lime Sorbet twine and the Happy stamp set from Bella Creationz. The pinwheels are from Cricut, the bottles I bought at Hobby Lobby and the sticks are from an old scent diffuser that had dried out.

I needed something to keep the sticks in place, so for the inside I bought "Tropical Infusion" scented Sachets that I bought at AC Moore for a buck a piece. I can't even begin to explain how amazing it smells. I opened the one for the purpose of sharing this project, but I will save the others until they're ready to go out on the tables.

I'm sure before the end of the night, the kids will have their fun playing with the pinwheels! :)

Enjoy...


 You can cut 4 pinwheels out of a 12 x12 double
sided paper. Use 3 in each jar, I made a total of 8 jars,
so I needed 6 sheets of patterned paper.

Oh Snap...Happy Birthday

Hello everyone, hope you are all enjoying your weekend, I know I am. Loving all of this warm weather we've gotten this past week and I hope it just keeps on coming. Today is Sequin/Shaker Saturday over at Timeless Twine and Bella Creationz, so for my project I'm using some beautiful sorbet twine and pretty pastel sequins, which are soon to come.

These sequins go perfect with any of the sorbet twines, I just love the colors, so fun, so pretty, so spring and summer! I've also used the "Oh Snap" and "Happy" stamp sets from Bella Creationz, which are great sets to work with.

Have a super FAB weekend!!!

Enjoy...

Abandon Me ATC's

Hi there, happy to be back with another project for my DT post for Cardz TV Gallery. I decided I wanted to make some Artist Trading Cards using Cardz TV stamps. I wanted to show how you can take Mary's stamps and pretty much make them work for any kind of project you might want to make, beyond your usual cards and paper projects.

For those of you who don't know, an artist trading card measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/5 and you can create anything you want on them. They are called artist trading cards, because they are meant to be traded with another artist's cards. 

I used a lot of mixed mediums to create the textures on the background of the cards and the die cuts, like the butterfly, seahorse and so on. I did join a challenge which was to make 5 of these and then Abandon them in 5 different locations, taking pictures of where I left them... something new to me, but thought it would be fun to do.

All and all, I had a great time making these and I especially loved to show how versatile Cardz TV stamps can be!

Enjoy...


Here is where I abandoned them...

Pretty In Pink

Hey there, today I want to share a project that I made for some wall d├ęcor, it's an 8x8 Vintage Shabby Chic Layout. I made this for my friend Stacy, we joined in on Easter swap together for the Chic Craftique FB group, where we were to send candies, crafty goodies and a project.

She has been through some tough times, health wise, so I wanted to make her something super special. I know her favorite color is pink and like me, she loves a variety of styles, so I'm hoping vintage shabby chic is one of them. I truly hope this helps put a nice smile on her face!

I did a quick YouTube video which is posted below, I did leave out that the "a Dream" tab and the background paper with the crown, is from Echo Park's page kit "Be Mine". The pearls, lace, flowers and bling I picked up at AC Moore.

Enjoy...







Have a great day!!!

Simple Things Make Life Sweet!

Hi everyone and "Happy April Fools' Day"!!! I have four boys, so I'm certain at some point today some kind of prank will be played upon me, this could prove to be an interesting day! Today I will be posting onto the Cardz TV Gallery, for more inspiration stop by and check out the DT's creativity as well.

For todays project I made a basket, for the sentiment I used one of Mary's Cardz TV Stamps "Just Saying" which is a wonderful set. For the basket I used the file from the svg kit "Picnic in a Basket" from svgcuts.com.

You can put anything in this basket really, depending on who or what you are using it for. Personally, I will be putting some flower petals inside of the basket with a small gift and a note card. This is for a friend, but I think this would be a great idea for Mother's Day too!

Hope you feel inspired and get your creative juices flowing.

Enjoy...
