Valentine’s Day Handmade Rose Card


I’ve been making handmade flowers recently, and this rose is my favorite one that I’ve come up with so far.I decided to use one on a card, and it fits perfectly for Valentine’s Day, a wedding or anniversary. These are fun for table place cards, mini albums, and much more.

So, I used a handmade rose, a Cricut love die cut, lace, Old Paper Distress Ink, photo corners, and a piece of pink pearl paper from DCWV Luxury Stack. The actual card is Kraft colored paper. Hope you enjoy this card! I will be getting some handmade daisies and other flowers into my store asap :).


Man’s Woodgrain Birthday Card


This week, I used the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Texture Fades once again. This time, it’s a birthday card for a guy, or anyone really.  It would look neat in pink or another color that isn’t usually used for a wood grain pattern. The tag on the outside is a 3″ tag, and the one inside is 4″. I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and embossed the stamped images with gold embossing powder. Enjoy!

Wood Embossed Thanks Card


I’ve been busy experimenting with making different paper flowers recently and I really enjoy it. I decided to add one to my card this week. It seemed a little bit too plain to have just a brown background, so I used Tim Holtz Woodgrain embossing folder to give the cardstock a little more interest. After I embossed it, I used sandpaper to bring out the design. You can find the elegant edge tag  in my store. Enjoy!

Ready to catch up on your holiday scrapbooking?

Ready to catch up on scrapbooking all your holiday photos? If you’re not ready, a great tip is to write your memories in a notebook for when you have time to catch up. It’s so easy to say you will remember what happened, then 10 years later (LOL!), when you finally look back at those photo, you may have forgotten what the story behind them was. Try making a small note in your notebook along with a little hint to remember what folder the photo is on your computer along with the photo numbers or file names. It will make your life so much easier when you finally get around to getting your project done.


Tall Stamp Handmade Card


Ok, so I really had no idea what to call this card. I guess I could have called it a square & rectangle card? Hmm…

Anyway, this card design fits well with a tall and narrow stamp, so I used a flower stamp I had along with my very favorite embossing powder, Red Dragon. The base of the card is 4″ x 4″ (8″ x 4″ paper folded in half), and the stamped yellow paper is 2.75″ x 4″ and I matted that paper onto a piece of white cardstock that is slightly bigger. The ribbon is actually Christmas ribbon that I picked up at Michael’s. It is more of a royal touch than a Christmas-y touch :). This card fits well into an invitation sized envelope. You can get packs of these envelopes very inexpensively in office supply stores. Enjoy!
