Chickies Like to Shake Shake It!

So I wanted to try something new…

So I’m shaking things up with shaker cards! My bestfriend sent me an awesome youtube video showing how to make your own shakers and I’m officially obsessed!

I’ve filled this shaker card with beads and star sequins.  I found a great way to store all these goodies along with my other craft essentials and will be sharing that in my next post!

Why Hello There!

Happy Happy Birthday.

I can’t take all the credit for this fun card! I was inspired by Kerry’s Paper Crafts! It’s hard making guy cards but I think this will be my go to card style from now on!

Need A Lift?

Everyone needs a good friend to give them a lift every now and then…

I’m lucky to have the best-est friends and family ever! This post is dedicated to them!

Sweetly Thinking of You!

I love rootbeer floats!

Nothing more delicious! I am really liking the use of spellbinders to make these fun shape cards.  I will have to invest in a few more!

Gumballs just for you!

Doodlebug Designs…I love this line for stamps and all things adorable!

Not only does doodlebug make the cutest scrapbook paper they make the most adorable stamps and stamping accessories! So for this card I made sure to add glossy accents to the little gumballs. This card just makes me smile and want to eat lots of candy!

Thinking of You Wooden Flags!

Just when I thought I needed to stop ordering more goodies online…

I came across these adorable wooden flags from Jillibean!

I added glossy accents to the butterfly wings to give it a little pop! It is my new fav craft accessory!

Zooming by to say Happy Father’s Day!

Zoom Zoom!

Here is another father’s day card that I have been working on. I really can’t say enough about these movers and shakers set from PTI! So cute! Also, I used embossing for the first time in ages and I will definitely be doing more it!

Yellow Submarine!

Actually this one is silver! A yellow one is on the way!

I used clear cs to make a glass window on the submarine and loved how it turned out! I also stamped the submarine on glittery silver paper which gives it a nice finish.  This is also my first card using distressed inks correctly. YAY!

I really need to combine stamp sets more often!

Wishing you nothing but…boogers!

I made this card for my best friend who loves the little germs!

You have to admit, it is pretty darn cute! Who knew? I added glossy accents to the germs to give them a shiny finish! And what germ doesn’t need a little bling?

On top of the world!

Another card from my nurse card series!

woohoo to using washi tape! I also loved adding the glossy accents to the apples and hearts. I need to stay away from watching you tube videos because all it makes me want to do is buy buy buy!

You Can Do It!

Who knew a worm could be so cute?

I had a request to make a few cards for some nurses who are approaching graduation! So I thought “You can do it! Almost There!” cards would be great for the occasion.   I’ll be making a few more of these cards for the graduation season!

The best part about making these is that I found these epoxy stickers that fit perfectly for his glasses!

You are loved…

and sometimes it needs to be said.

This card made me really happy as I was sitting there putting it all together.  Hope it brings a smile to your face and warms your heart too! I heart Paper Smooches.

She sells seashells by the seashore!

I love little pearls.

I found inspiration for this card as I was searching online for creative ways to use the Lawn Fawn stamp set.  I love how the half pearls sit perfectly on the sea shells.
