6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder – Pansy Petals

I returned from my vacation on Tuesday....and one of the first things i did was go in my craft rom to figure out what I was going to do for my Facebook Live that was scheduled for later in the evening.  I had 4 hours to think of something...well less if I wanted to actually… Continue reading 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder – Pansy Petals

Friends are Like Seashells…..

I am still on vacation at the beach....my happy place.  As much as I’d like to, I’m not walking on the beach (still in re-hab from ankle surgery), I would usually be collecting shells....I have them all over my house in glass jars from trips to Myrtle Beach, Key West, Clearwater Beach, and even from… Continue reading Friends are Like Seashells…..

Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

I love pansies....the vibrant colors, soft petals...they are beautiful to use in landscaping....unless you have rogue bunnies in your yard!  A few years ago I bought about 80 pansy plants at a local high school fundraiser to fill a rather large flower bed in front of my house.  I planted them one afternoon.  They looked… Continue reading Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

Hand Penned Angle Front Z Fold

Just to let you know right off the bat that I made up the name of the type of card I am sharing today - Hand Penned Angle Front Z Fold.  I’m sure there is a better name, but that’s just the best way to describe the card....it describes everything the card is.  So here… Continue reading Hand Penned Angle Front Z Fold

Hydrangea are Blooming!

In my last blog post I mentioned that I needed to share some of the cards that I have made with the Hydrangea Suite of products in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  I bought this stamp set back in February, so it's about time I used it!  Maybe I was waiting for spring..... The paper… Continue reading Hydrangea are Blooming!

Sand & Shells

Although the weather is warming up and we’ve had a few days teasing of summer, the past few days have been definitely more “spring” than “beach” weather.  So I’m having to just dream about warm breezes and relaxing on the beach and made a card similar to several ones that I had seen. I layered… Continue reading Sand & Shells

Seashells by the Seashore…..

Who remembers the tongue twister...She sells seashells by the seashore?  Can you say it three times fast?  Me neither.  Who likes to collect seashells?  Me!  My happy place is the beach.  I love to sit and watch the waves and I also love to walk the beach and look for shells.  I have a very… Continue reading Seashells by the Seashore…..

Clear Mini Halloween Treat Boxes

This is probably the one of the easiest and fastest treat boxes that I have made. I should have timed myself. Maybe 10 minutes? I probably could have done it faster, but I did have to do a little coloring....and eat some candy corn in the process. It just takes a few simple items and… Continue reading Clear Mini Halloween Treat Boxes
