Tree Full Of Hearts Mini Cards - Valentine Card Series

These cards are so fun to make.  I would love to say they are quick but all of those little hearts are glued on individually which makes them super sweet.  I love this little tree stamp from AMuse (I know it's old, but I use it every year)!   The XOXO is Stampin UP I color the leaves green and then go nuts with the hearts in various colors of pink and red.  Everything is layered onto red cardstock.  When I sell these each one gets the cutest little envelope that fits perfectly these tine 3" cards.   Who can resist tiny things?  No one can that's who!

Bucket of Hearts With Love - Valentine Card Series

YAY more cards from Scrap Die Cuts.  I was so on a roll with the last card that I had to continue with another.  More of the same hearts and I found this Awesome Bucket in my box of scrap die cuts.  I believe it is Memory Box or Poppy Stamps as well.  Who doesn't want buckets full of hearts for Valentines?  The greeting is Silver Sticker.  Hardest part of this card was filling the bucket with hearts.  I love making these quick adorable cards for Valentines!
Hope you are enjoying the Valentine Card Ideas.  Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

With Love Hearts - Valentine Card Series

I'm having fun doing up some Valentine Cards from my scraps especially my die cut scrap box.   You know how you go to make something and the die either cuts more than you need, the negative is great or the color or size was just not right so you cut it again to finish up.  Now your left with all of these extra pieces.  I have a box full of these because I hate to throw them out.  So I've started pulling a pile of them out every once in awhile and making up some cards.  Here the hearts and circle are leftover.  I know the heart die is Memory Box and it is the negative from a die.  
I used some Washi tape strips for the greeting and the polka dots.  The patterned paper is from my scrap bin.  With a little black ribbon it was a quick lovely card.  

It really is a great way to used up your scraps.  I like to get the kids involved as well.   I will have them pick out some items and then we have to create something with it.  It's fun to work with them listen to their ideas and it really helps gets the creativity going especially if your not feeling the MOJO.  You could even ask a friend to play along!
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look.  Hope your having a Wonderful week so far!

Love My Snow Boots - Scrappy Saturday

OH totally one of my favorite Abbi Memories.  She was obsessed with her snow boots.  She wore them all the time.  These pictures were taken in the middle of summer after she got out of the pool.  But she had to wear the snow boots.  I sometimes tried to hide them from her when I knew they would just be too hot.  But how can you resist that face they make her so Happy! 

This layout was fun and used more scraps and some Washy Tape with doodling.   I was on a green kick for a bit here.  I did do some versamark stamping to give interest the plain cardstock.  I also used my most favorite KI Memories acrylic letters and shapes... I've been hoarding these for years.

Hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

We (heart) Fall - Scrappy Saturday

Still on my Basic Grey kick as  you can see.  I've been digging back into favorite past papers to make up my kits and loving every minute of it.  The pumpkin patch is one of my favorite things!  The year in these pics we went with Friends/Neighbors and had a blast with the Hay Ride and Haunted  House etc.  I do love the little banner with the word Fall from tiny alphabet stickers and anything with arrows.....
The oranges and yellows in this paper is perfect for these pictures!   So happy how it turned out!
Thank you so much for stopping by I'm having fun sharing layouts and trying to get the photography right.  Hope you have a Wonderful Weekend.

Sandpipers - Scrapbook Saturday(Flashback)

This layout I love it's a circle which I thought was really cool at the time.  However I insisted on adding those points all around the edge of the already 12 x 12 circle.  It's brilliant right?  NO it doesn't fit into a page protector(DUH brain fart moment).  The photos of the girls playing on the beach (Lake Michigan, MI side) are awesome though.  They were so little and still liked each other, total Besties then.

The paper are all Basic Grey(oh how I miss this company).  I just cut out the flowers and used hem as an element.  I added rub ons for a title and subtitle and the white doodles were done by hand.

Thank you once again for stopping by! Hope your having a fabulous weekend getting ready for the Holidays!

That Face - Scrapbook Saturday

Still working on my photographing of layout skill.  It kinda sucks doesn't it!  I have no idea how everyone does it Uggghh....  Anyway I love this layout!  It's just a picture of Abbi being goofy and adorable.  The picture was my current favorite when I put this together!  I had fun finding little things to fill in the space here.  The hearts are all punched from scraps.  I took a couple of nights in front of the TV with smaller scraps and punched them with various punches to use up he paper.  Then I added them to my embellishment box.  It's a great way to use up scraps and have a ton of embellishments for fillers.

Thank you for stopping by I hope your having a Wonderful Weekend!

Pantone Color 2018

Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Ultra Violet

I am in Love!  I like purple my craft room is a pale lavender but usually not unless it is mixed with enough blue!  This purple/violet is lovely though.  The darkest shade matches Abbi's walls in her bedroom.  She will be so happy to see more items come out in this color! 

Now lets see how this inspires fashion, home goods and everything else over the year it should be exciting!

Happy World Card Making Day 2017

A little bit ago I received an email message from my Blog.  I don't normally get these and I'll be honest most things from my blog are Spam about Goose Down(I have no idea why???) or some sort of prescription drugs.  So I generally see it in my list and think I can do read that later.  It's a bad habit but I just can't help myself.

Anyway when I finally did open and read the message it was anything but a regular Spam email.  It was from Sarah at informing me that my card(this card) was featured in their article about World Card Making Day.  I was floored.  Usually I post things just for my family and myself as my journal of what the Family and I are doing.  I run on the notion that no one is looking.  Again another bad habit but it's better than talking to myself everyday... Wait I do that too! 

So since people might be looking, I hope everyone gets a lot of time to Make Cards on this World Card Making Day.  I have errands and then I'm meeting a friend to shop for walking shoes, as we are in a contest to get the most steps between now and December and with $200 - $500.  I will be crafty tonight as I have tons of crafty work from my Etsy Shop Orders and for my Craft Fairs to work on that it is hard to work on during the work week.  But I must get my steps in first. 

The details for this card can be found in the post here and it is also in my gallery.

I would like to say Thank You to Sarah at and apologize for ignoring her message profusely.  I never meant to be rude, so sorry.

Have a Wonderful Fall Weekend and get Crafty when you can!  Thank you so much for stopping by XOXOXO.
