Be My Valentine!

I was inspired to make a few Valentine’s Day Cards…

Love is in the air! And thanks to Martha Stewart, I get to make all these cute cards.  I have to say patterned paper makes all the difference!  Also, I found a packet of Martha Stewart felt stickers that were perfect for this occasion.

Aren’t the little heart buttons absolutely adorable? The is my first time using felt cut outs and I love it.  So so so cute!

More to come!

  • Recipe: Cardstock from PTI, Patterned paper and felt heart from Martha Stewart, and i-rock hot adhesive.

Just in time for a little snow!

“Corn cob pipe and a button nose…”

I was flipping through a card magazine and saw this adorable snowman so I made my own version!  This card was fun to make because I was trying to be creative with all of my different die cuts and found perfect shapes for the hand, nose, and head of Mr. Snowman.  I drew the hat myself and used a push pin to create the mouth of the snowman.   The hardest part was squeezing all the “happy holiday” letters on the card~!

Thanks for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Happy Father’s Day! (Part 1)

I know it’s a little early for Father’s day… but shhh! Drink up Dads!

I’ve decided to do a 3-part Father’s day card series because when it comes to dads, you can get away with a chuckle or two!  For every crafter, there are certain colors of cardstock that poses a creativity challenge.  For me, it’s brown or orange.  (Definitely, brown.  No, it’s orange.)  Both have me gripping my hair and saying “argh!” why doesn’t it work?!  So for Father’s day, I thought these would be great masculine colors to inspire some creativity.

Here is where I got the idea for the card and decided to make my own version.  I found the beer mug from Clip Art and loved how the frothy bubbles were overflowing from the mug.  Inspired, I made the white frothy beer bubbles with my circle die cuts and added a mini-dot on the largest bubble for a little dimension.  Overall, I think this will give a dad a little chuckle on his special day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I made a little something with love for Mother’s Day.

I found these wonderful picture frames in an assortment of colors! I thought red would go perfectly with the theme of love for Mother’s day.  Using my oh-so-awesome cuttlebug alphabet, I cranked out “Mom” in blue craftstock to match the words in the love scrapbooking paper.  A sweet and simple craft in celebration of a beautiful holiday 🙂
