I had cut a few extra pieces from my first Zesty Lemon card, so I thought I would create this card based on a card Chari Moss created for Lawn Fawn’s release of the set recently.
I didn’t have the dies to create the stripes so I used what I had in my stash. The Pink Fresh sentiment in gold hot foiled on white card stock gave it a classic look that could be given to anyone (even our favourite guy). Using the same buttercup yellow glitter paper I created just the slightest drop shadow for the hot fouled sentiment that gave it that extra subtle pop.
Well hello Sunshine!! Summer is here and I just could not wait to dig into the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon die set!
So easy to use, just a two shades of card stock for each fruit, adding a bit of super easy inking with daubers gives each piece so much more dimension and fun. And of course I had to add glitter!! So a hint of buttercup yellow glitter paper behind Lawn fawn’s new Gotta Have Gingham pattern paper was just what the card needed to add that final touch.
Autumn is wrapping up & Old Man Winter is rapidly approaching – what better time to create this card using Prima’s Autumn Sunset collection.
I used the 6×6 paper pad, along with the chipboard & ephemera pack to create this card, along with Lawn Fawn’s stitched leaves dies that I inked with Distress Inks to create the accents. The tiny metal acorns I found at a local store and finally got to use them; attached with hemp twine.
As an avid card maker, I’m not usually one to buy 12×12 paper collections. But when I saw this It’s Snome Time paper collection illustrated by Hez Cuppleditch I just had to have it. Those Gnomes are so cute!! I … Continue reading →
I’m not a scrapbooker, or even a mixed media artist so I rarely buy 12×12 collections. But this Alice collection by Stamperia really hit it out of the park for me. I love that there are different panels ready to use on your project, but also within the full 12×12 images there are lots of images that can be cut too.
As soon as I saw this Alice collection I knew it would be perfect for a Double Z fold card layout. This is an A2 size card, but even with the larger 12×12 scale Stamperia’s collection really worked for this fold. I can’t wait to try more fancy folds with this collection & the paper I have remaining!
Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!
I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies. This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post. 🙂
Wow does time fly!! It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been keeping up on Facebook and Instagram!
A super quick and easy masculine card, this Photoplay “Man Card” paper collection was perfect! I used gold foil to mat my layers on top of a woodgrain stamped cardstock base. Gold metal dots finished off the card nicely and tied all the layers together.
I used the scraps to make the coordinating envelope – having a custom made coordinating envelope really adds that extra touch of personalization 🙂

I have been really in to the shabby chic, ‘prettier’ cards lately. As you know, generally my style is more on the cutesy side, but I have been making an effort to diversify my skills and I have been trying out papers and collections that I have really loved.
This Gilded Lily collection from Graphic 45 was no exception. I had the opportunity to create a gorgeous album with this collection at the CHA summer show in Chicago this past summer and I really loved how versatile the paper and chipboards are!
I needed to make a birthday card for a co-worker and I knew she would appreciate something pretty – so I pulled out my Graphic 45 and leafed through the stack and decided on the two papers from the collection.
Here is a list of supplies if you would like to make this card at home! Just comment below if you would like to have the measurements for this card & I will be happy to share that with you!
