Make a Christmas card with leaves from your yard!

This card was a happy accident 🙂 I saw a gorgeous leaf card on a blog the other day and thought the lady had really used a leaf to make it. The leaf she used was stamped in silver and it looked phenomenal.  Well, I don’t own a big leaf stamp but I figured it was worth giving a real leaf a chance and see what happened!

It was so much fun experimenting! I also found a way online to dry my leaves quickly — in 30 seconds! So hopefully you can grab a cup of coffee and watch my little oak leaf card video below 🙂

You don’t need much to make your card, just a swirly stamp and ink, some gold embossing powder, gold stickles and bling if you want.

Add some movement with a slider card!

Make a fun little slider card for any occasion! My daughter was enthralled when I let her see these cards, but they are fun for old and young alike! I like that you can put a tiny little message inside the slider part for another bit of fun 🙂

Just make the easy slider and decorate the card with Dazzles scrapbooking stickers, and you’re good to go!

Book Paper Flowers

With the popularity of ebooks and the Kindle, sadly real books are becoming a thing of the past. I still love the smell of a brand new book! I’ve always been a bookworm and just love the actual experience of sitting down with a cup of tea and a good book 🙂

So this business of making flowers out of books seemed a bit painful to me at first. But I went to Goodwill and found an older book for .50 that looked like one I would never get around to reading lol…but even so, it took me several weeks to actually get up the gall to rip it up!

But making flowers out of the pages is a beautiful thing! I love these! There even a way to take care of the acidic paper …so tune in below!  And if you don’t want them to be just plain paper, then simply jazz them up with Ranger Inks, Stickles Glitter Glue, or whatever else you have handy!

Breast Cancer Awareness Card

As you might know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Most of us know someone that has suffered or are still undergoing treatment for this terrible disease. So why not send them an encouraging card, or send a card to your friends as a reminder to take good care of themselves?

Grab some pink loopy brads, a pink awareness ribbon, a little bit of organdy ribbon, glue, some pink cardstock and some white pearl paper, and you’re ready to get started!

Easier paper cutting tip

A lot of scrapbook paper has gorgeous designs that you can cut out and use instead of other embellishments. Some of the designs are intricate and seem hard to cut out. It’s so tempting to take a grade-school approach to cutting and move your scissors around the design. a more simple approach is to keep your scissors steady and move the paper! Try it, it will make your cutting so much easier!
