Cards Cards Cards


I have really lost my crafting mojo lately. I have not been feeling well, which I usually dive into crafting as therapy, but not this time. This time it feels like a chore. So I made a few birthday cards to try to get back into the swing of it but...nope.



Then my sons dog, Charlie, passed away. Poor thing...so sad. I made this for them, and enjoyed making it. Maybe because it had a purpose...who knows....


I also tried making some Valentine cards. I was thinking of sending them out this year but as you can see, I got this many and now...I am stopped again. 







Made a birthday card for my daughter (made it late) so even that didn't bring the urge to craft back. I think I am going to take a break for a while and do some reading. Honestly, I do not think I will keep the website after this year either. Nobody reads it so what good is spending the money for it?




HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

Christmas




Christmas Cards and Baskets
These are just a few of the cards I made this Christmas. 
I also made the envelopes because I did not have envelopes for these cards since they are 6x6 in size.










Inside has a pocket  where I put a tea bag and a chocolate.




I also made these gift baskets that I filled with Skin So Soft Avon products and chocolates. It has a homemade gift tag and a homemade card!





So on to the next holiday? Valentines day?

Halloween Spooky Season


Some Halloween card fun. I used all different brands of papers and cardstock. Some of the cards are tall and long and some are gatefold. I had so much fun making these cards I will be making a ton more for Christmas shortly.

Flip Folio

  This folio was soooo much fun to make. I used the Graphic 45 paper and everything else came from all different places. I love mixing all different products together. 

Here is the inside top and bottom. There are pull out little flips as well.

And....of course a waterfall too. This book holds tons of photos

 So this is my sassy daughter, Kate. Her Birthday
is in January so I made her this pretty January mini
folio. The paper is Graphic 45 Time to Flourish.
Almost everything else is Recollections. I really
enjoyed making it so I think I am going to make one
for every month :)

Spring Market Card


This is a 5x7 card with a little mini accordian pull out in it. It is so lovely! I saw the video from Kathy By Design and just knew I had to make one. I will link her Blog below. The front has a heart card that comes out of the belly band so you can write on it or put pictures in it or whatever suits your fancy.  The flowers are from Recollections and the paper is Spring Market by Carta Bella




Here is the front without the heart card.


When you lay it down and open it up the top shows the mini accordion pull out and the bottom holds 2 tags in a cute little pocket.


The tags are quite large and can be used for photos or journalling or just leave them as they are. 


The left side of the accordion opens like this. Both sides are covered in the paper. 


This is the right side opened up.


And the middle holds two tags for journaling or photos.


One of the pages in the accordion pull out has a matchbook on it. It is held together with magnets. The Plant piece is only glued on the bottom so a picture can slide in behind it. No wasted space!!



This is the back. These rainboots are soooo stinkin cute! 



Thank you so much for checking out my blog and for sharing it (please). Here is Kathy's blog: http://www.kathybydesign.com/

Cards for Assisted Living


The paper from Doodlebug is adorable. So I had to make some cards. Most of the cards I made are generic so people can use them for anything they wish. I made about 30 of them to donate to a local rehab assisted living facility. It makes me happy to make even just one of them happy.




This paper is Spring Market by Carta Bella. It is so beautiful I made a ton of cards with it. I also made a few other projects with it. Ill post those in the next day or so.




I watch a lot of Kristie Marcotte videos. I love her paper choices and she share her card sketches. Thank you Kristie

Christmas and Halloween Cards


Some Christmas cards and some Halloween cards. So cute, I know I will have to make more and more.




These Halloween cards are in all different sizes. I used all different paper and embellishments. 

Here is the inside of one.


These are my absolute favorite style of card I think....for now lol. So very cool with the belly bands or with the embellishment flap.


Here is a picture of inside the cards. Aren't they cute??
