Pocket Card Fun Fold

I like Pocket Cards.  You know....those cards that have a pocket on the front or inside that lets you slide in in a little note that is on a separate card.  I've made quite a few...some that had a place for a message inside like this one: Sweet As A Peach Fun Fold Pocket Card.  Or… Continue reading Pocket Card Fun Fold

Crazy Cat Halloween Card

I am participating in a card swap next week so I needed to get my cards ready.  I need 11 cards, so I wanted something that was fun….but also easy to make in multiples.  It needed to be a “Holiday” themed card and I debated about whether to make it a Halloween Card or a… Continue reading Crazy Cat Halloween Card

Beauty of the Earth in 5 Minutes or less

Happy Labor Day!

A Joyful Life

A Joyful life is something I strive for.  I do not always achieve it every day, but I am working on it.  In fact it was my New Year’s resolution.  You can read about that here. A Joyful Life also just also happens to be the name of the stamp set that I used to make… Continue reading A Joyful Life

Penguin Week – Card #2

You would think that with an entire week that I could make more than 2 cards.  Nope, not this week.  I’m still playing catch-up after being away from home for almost 6 weeks with no craft supplies.  And now that I have an entire room-ful?  And new ones to boot?  I’m so overwhelmed with having… Continue reading Penguin Week – Card #2

Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

Quick and easy cards…who likes them?  I do!  There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front.  Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together.  This is the result.  I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

In the Wild….Take One

Just a little quick tip today……You do not have to own a stamp set that coordinates with a particular set of Designer Series Paper to be able to use it to make cards. That is precisely what happened with this set of Designer Series Papers called In the Wild. As you can see, there are… Continue reading In the Wild….Take One
