Hello Friend

The major inspiration for this card is from Debbie Olson (debbiedesigns) and the beautiful cards she’s been creating with Bodacious Bouquet. The color inspiration is from Sam Carnathan (Samwich)… I just tweaked it a bit. Thanks ladies for your inspiration! The colors I used are Vintage Violet, Sage Shadow, and Almost Amythest. The bottom portion […]

My First Tutorial…

I’ve had several requests for a tutorial on the cupcake card I posted on Friday with the triangle closure. So here I am… attempting my first tutorial… bear with me! LOL! This will be my shoebox swap for a SoCal stamping event I’m attending this weekend. Are you coming?? What you will need* 1/4 sheet […]


I have a lot of thank you’s to say today!! I made this card for everybody out there who reads and supports my blogging venture! If I had the time and resources I would send everyone a card in their mailbox, but that’s just not possible right now so you get this instead! 🙂 The […]

Holiday Thyme

Both of these projects were created with the Holiday Thyme designer papers from Stampin’ Up! I absolutely love these papers… they make it so easy to coordinate. I picked up a few paper mache boxes on clearance at Michael’s and thought they’d be great for holiday gift boxes. I adhered the paper with Mod Podge […]


It just wouldn’t be Friday without cupcakes, huh!? I’ve had several requests to make every Friday cupcake day. It seems to cheer people up… and make them hungry! LOL! I would love to make a cupcake card every Friday, but I need your help! If you have cupcake images or images including cupcakes that you […]

Happy Fall Y’all

I wanted to make a fall card last night and as I looked through my stamps I realized I have almost *nothing* suitable for fall. Can you believe it!? I have Halloween stamps, but nothing fall-ish. This pumpkin image was the closest I could come to fall and I don’t even know the maker of […]

Poinsettia Christmas

I bought this set (Happiest of Holidays) last year when Stampin’ Up had various Christmas sets discounted. This is the first chance I’ve had to use it since I had already made my Christmas cards when I bought it last year. My mom asked me for some samples using this set so she could get […]

Look Ma… no stamping!

I got in a mood recently to make cards without using stamps… a perfect excuse to use up those embellishments that I have so much fun buying, but just can’t seem to work into my stamped cards. The card base is Cranberry Crisp and the patterned paper is from Carolee’s Creations. The circle stickers are […]

Creepy, Scary, Spooky

Yet another Booglie Eyes card… I’m so glad I bought this set! My craft show is after Halloween so I won’t be able to sell these at my show, but I just can’t stop making ’em. I’m gonna have lots of RAK’s to send out at the end of October! 🙂 I promised myself that […]

Oh Baby!

Today my big project was to make baby cards for my upcoming craft show. I love the soft colors and the cutesy images for baby cards. They are one of my favorite types of cards to make! These two are just a few of the cards I came up with today… I only have one […]
