Hey everyone!! Today it’s all about the guys over on the MCT blog. I decided to create a fun tag using the Torn Paper Frames die. I used the second and third dies from this set to create my tag. I die cut the frames using some fabulous paper from Tim Holtz Christmas 8×8 paper pad. This is the paper pad from last year.
The papers in this collection worked out perfectly. I did adhere the papers to some Kraft cardstock before die cutting them just to give them some stability and so a message could be written on the back. I stamped, colored, and die cut the cute gingerbread guy from the Gingerbread Friends stamp and die set. Seriously?? How cute are these little guys. Why have I not used this sooner? I did stamp the gingerbread guy onto some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and stamped him with Versafine Onyx Black ink then embossed him with clear embossing powder. I then used some Copic markers to color him. I added some Brilliant White Nuvo drops for added detail.
The sentiment comes from the Gingerbread Friends set as well. I did stamped it and trimmed it out with my paper trimmer. I added all of the images and layers with foam tape. I punch a hole at the top and added some pretty taupe ribbon I had in my stash.
There you have it!! I even got the approval from My Guy that it qualified as a “guy tag”. Make sure you check out the MCT blog for more inspiration!
Hello everyone. Last week I shared a photo of a fun little mini album over on Instagram. Well I had lots of comments from folks wanting to see a peek at the inside so here’s a quick video of that fun little vintage looking mini album.
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a set of tags that I created using Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood collection. The base of the tags are from Tim Holtz. They are the medium and small Etcetera tags. I purchased them online from Amazon.
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!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun tag that I created for the PDE Linky Party challenge. This week the challenge is All Tags. Here’s the tag that I created.
I used a really cute die set from Stephanie Barnard. It’s a cute pocket tag that will hold a gift card. I used some Stampin’ Up Early Espresso cardstock for the base of the tag and some design papers from the Echo Park 6×6 Fall is in the Air paper pad.
I used a cute little Owl Doodlepop for the center of my tag. I added a layer of green cardstock to create a little hill for the owl to stand on. I added some bling and ribbon to the top to finish it off.
I die cut the word enjoy, which is from a set of word dies by Tim Holtz,and added it to the back of the tag.
There you have it! That’s my tag. I hope you will join us at PDE Linky Party! Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Today is the day for another challenge at PDE Linky Party. The challenge this time is “Anything but a Card”. I decided to create a fun FALL banner using a leaf chipboard mini album that I had in my stash. Here’s my banner.
I painted the leaves with a bunch of different paints from my stash. I did use the Tim Holtz copper paint and lots of distress ink. I used a wide black Copic marker to go around the edges of the leaves. I die cut several circles and doilies using the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids.
I used some Lawn Fawn leaf dies and the Stampin Up Acorn Builder punch as well. I cut out the letters on my Cricut Explore Air using the papers from Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids. I used some gold thread to attach the leaves together and tied some bows with some May Arts jute string.
Here are photos of each letter.
That’s my banner! I hope you will join the fun and link up your project at PDE Linky Party. Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I want to share a couple of tags that I created to celebrate someone’s birthday!.
To create my tags I used a really great die set from My Creative Time. I’ve wanted this die set for a long time so I was when I finally got it I had to make something!. I got the actual two different dies as well as the layers for the dies. Here’s a closeup.
The design paper is from Stampin Up. I love the cute little ric-rak trim piece along the bottom. This is also part of the die set. The word celebrate is actually from another word die set by Tim Holtz.
Here’s a closeup of the other tag.
For this cute tag I added another smaller little stamp and die set from My Creative Time layered on the top. I added some striped grosgrain ribbon through the hole at the top of each tag and some white bakers twine. I really like how they turned out! And I really love this new die set! Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! Today I want to share my first project for the Miss Kate blog for 2015. I decided to create a fun shaped card using a super cute file called Puppy Love.
All of the elements in this file are adorable! I decided to use the fire hydrant as the base for my shaped card.
I added the fun little paw prints as well as the doggy bone to the front of my card with some dimensional adhesive.
I stamped the sentiment “special delivery” from the CardzTV stamp set “Snail Mail”. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen and inked around all of the edges with walnut stain distress ink from Tim Holtz.
That’s my card! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
