Valentine Pocket Album

Image
It seems like everyone love "mini" items. I guess I am no exception because when I saw the die set for this mini album, I new it was a must for my collections. 


To see how I created these cute little pocket albums, click on the video below. 


There are so many uses for these little pocket albums. Of course you can store your photos. But I think they would be cute for love notes, ephemera and even a gift card.



I created two of these little pocket albums. One I decorated with stickers and the other I decorated with some cute ephemera.

But really these little albums can be used for so many occasions, you just need to switch up your paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Passport to Love - Guest Designer

Image
Hi everyone! We released our passport to love kit on Janruary 14th. If you missed that post, you can find it here. Today I am featuring another project from guest designer Angela Fitzsimmons.



Angela created some beautiful projects with this kit. Fist up is the min composition book. This is so lovely and would make a great little diary. 



This note holder is so precious. It would be perfect sitting on your desk and so functional as well. 


Finally, this fun little Valentine Card. Angela used not only the designer paper from the passport kit, but the retro Valentine image set as well. 


Be sure to check out Angela's projects over on her blog where she will have all the details on her projects.




A few of my designers decided to jump in on the fun! Wendy also got to play with the Retro Valentine set. She created these cute little easel cards which are just adorable!. Be sure to check out her blog for all the details.

Masculine Occasion card

Image
Hello everyone! I am here sharing a a new stamp set that I picked up at Pink & Main. Now I know cutesy stamps typically are not my style, but when I saw this little Lumber Jack, I  knew it was the perfect set for my sons birthday.

You can check out my process video below. 


Now you may wonder why I thought this was the perfect set. Well, he is currently in his 4th year at Northern Arizona University and their mascot is the Lumber jack. So of course the theme made sense.

After I finished created this birthday card, I was so loving this little lumber jack fellow that I decided to create a Valentine card as well. 

The background stamp is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. It was a perfect background for my Lumber Jack. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Layered Cards - European Paper Crafts

Image
Hi everyone and happy Friday. I know many of you struggle with layered cards, so I thought I would share with you a paper stack that will help you with that.

European Paper crafts has a paper pack called Romantic pictures. but it is much more than pictures. The paper stack has ephemera that can be added to your design to create a 3D look.

To see my complete process, check out my video below:



What I love about this stack is that each page has everything you need to create a beautiful layered card. It also has a picture of the finished card so that you can easily follow the example.



You can find everything you need in the shop, including the 3D foam adhesives to add the 3D element to your cards.



Follow the design, or create your own. The sky is the limit with these fun paper sets. Be sure to check out the shop for more themes.

Hi friends. I am here today to share with you a card I created for the theme and sketch challenge going on over at STAMPlorations.  The theme is Stamps & Animals.  Now I didn't have many animal stamps in my stash, I did find this Christmas set. It had the sentiment "I Love You thiiiiiis much!


You can check out my process video below.

Passport to Love - Valentine kit release

Image
Hi everyone! With exactly a month before Valentine's Day, I decided to do a special mid month release for a brand new digital kit called Passport to Love. This kit is perfect for Valentine's Day or any occasion for Love and is now available in the shop.




I created this passport card and added a metal element along with a beautiful pink bow.  This kit has some beautiful ephemera as well.



You can check out my process video below.




This paper was so beautiful, I decided to create not only a passport card, but a passport book. While this kit is a digital download, I decided to print out several pages of my kit and create an embellishment kit to create not both projects below. You can find the digital kit as well as the printed kit over in my shop.



The design team has been busy with this kit as well so let me share with you their creations.

Marcia from the Frolicking Fairy created this cute Pocket envelope and matching card set. This is a perfect set for a Valentine's Day gift. I am s…

Love Potion Formula

Image
He friends! I am here to share with you my Love Potion Valentine's Day card using the Stampers Anonymous Stamp set called Laboratorie.


Now this by no means is a new stamp set, but I love it because there are so many possibilities with it. Of course it is great for Halloween, but the Apothecary them can also translate into a "Love Potion" design as well. And we all know that Love potions are great for Valentines's Day.

For my complete process, be sure to check out my video below.


Not everyone loves the frilly Valentine Cards, so this one is perfect for those "no frill" Valentines, but still gets the message across.


I used 3 dies for this design. One of the new dies in my stash is the Lawn Fawn Lift Tab set. I added the Sizzix pocket die under the lift tab to house all my love potions that I will be creating. 



The pocket is so fun and perfect to hold all of my love potions as well as my ingredients for my spell.

Thanks for stopping by.
