Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created with the Authentique Solitude Collection. This is a very vintage inspired winter collection.
My card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2 square. I layered one of the design papers onto some ivory cardstock then added another layer of dark grayish green cardstock. I then added this to the frontof my card.
I die cut a doily using a BoBunny Mandala die from the same ivory cardstock. I trimmed out one of the 3×4 cut aparts and layered it onto the same red cardstock as the card base.
I added some flowers from Graphic 45 and Little Birdie crafts to the bottom left corner, along with a bow from some fabulous silk ribbon by May Arts. I had these cute little acorn charms in my stash so I tied them together with some jute string and attached them to the upper left hand corner. I trimmed out the quote from the company branding strip and added it to the bottom of the card front.
I finished off the inside of the card with some more of the design paper.
That’s my card. Have a fabulous week!

I had a little time to play with some of my new Lawn Fawn from their latest release so I thought I would create a project for the LawnFawnatics challenge. The challenge was coffee, tea, or sweets. Here’s the card that I created.
I used my Critter Hugger stand alone die along with the newly released Critter Hugger Winter Add On.
Here’s a closeup of the front showing the latte.
I wanted the sentiment to stand out so I stamped it on black and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
That’s my card! Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a quick and bright Easter themed easel card. I used some Lawn Fawn dies to create my project. The card measures 6×6 and is an easel card.
I used some fun bright solid card stock to die cut the eggs. I wanted them to match the rainbow striped background design paper which is also from Lawn Fawn.
I also added a cute little white picket fence to my scene.
Here’s a look at the card when it’s closed.
There you have it! Below is a list of Lawn Fawn supplies that I used to create my card. Have a fabulous weekend!

Hello everyone! I’ve been really busy traveling and teaching. Thanks so much to everyone who traveled to come take one of my classes. You all are amazing!

Hello everyone! Today I want to share the valentines that I created for my grandkids. For my granddaughters card I used a really fun svg file from Lori Whitlock. Here’s the card I made for my granddaughter.
Here’s the card when it’s open. It’s a fun pop out card. I used my Cricut Explore Air2 to cut out this card. I even used the writing feature to write the sentiment.
For my grandsons card I decided to create the card without using the file. I did cut out a cute bee from Miss Kate Cuttables.
I used a couple of stamp sets from CardzTv to stamp the sentiment on the inside.
There you have it! I need to get these in the mail so they can receive them on time. Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a pop up card that I created for my sisters’ birthday. I used the beautiful Graphic 45 Off to the Races Collection for my card and matching envelope.
I used my envelope punch board to create an A6 envelope. I made a belly band closure since my card was a little bulky. I used a punch for the scallop circle and then added one of the banners to the front from the collection. I used paper from the 12×12 patterns and solids for the envelope. Here’s a closeup of the envelope.
My pop up card measures 4×6. I used one of the journal cards for the front image and layered it up with lots of dimensional foam tape. I added some clear Wink if Stella for some sparkle. Some little metal corners were added to the top and a pretty Prima flower along the bottom. I added a small piece of adhesive back crochet trim from May Arts as well.
The magic happens when you open the card to reveal the pop up. I used some of the gorgeous lady portraits for the pop up and die cut my happy birthday sentiment using the Tim Holtz Celebrate framelits.
Here’s another view of the inside.
There you have it! That’s the card I created for my sister. She loved it! Have a great day!
