Spring may have sprung for many of you, but here in MN, Mother Nature is still trying to decide what season we’re in! We’ve had rain, sleet and snow this past week and today’s cards are making me want spring to come quickly!
This month I’m April’s Guest Designer over at Petaloo, WooHoo!!! Many of you already use Petaloo, but if you haven’t heard of them, they have beautiful flowers and gorgeous embellishments and ribbon! Be sure to check out all the fun HERE. Here are a few cards I made for them that use a few other products I want to share with you.
This criss cross card uses Labels Detailz Dies, released yesterday at Lifestyle Crafts. Detailz Dies are dies that cut and emboss. Isn’t this label pretty? I love how Petaloo’s flowers and brads coordinate so well with the DP, Bella Blvd Spring Flings and Easter Things.
Here’s another card I made for Petaloo using Lockhart’s Vintage Apron stamp. I love this image and paper pieced it with Bella Blvd Spring Things and Easter Things “Borders”. The adorable resin rose is a Petaloo brad as well as the Mulberry flower/brad, and the perfect touch for this apron! Now take a look at this cool gift bag…
Laurie has come up with a brilliant and innovative way to present a gift bag and card with her Card Hanger Dies. It’s a wonderful way to make sure your card doesn’t get lost in the bag! Here I used it for my gift bag, isn’t it pretty? I love how the card stock I used matches my bag perfectly!
The Card Hanger Die was so easy to use and really makes my gift bag look polished, don’t you think? Hope you all have a great day! :)

Hey everyone! I saw on Pinterest these adorable bandaids someone made for their sick and feverish daughter, and thought, I can do that! I used the Nesting Card Templates to cut different sizes of bandaids and small scalloped & regular squares for the centers. I stitched them into place, added the velcro, and I was done! I should have cut the velcro so it would look more finished, but the baby was needing me and I was in a hurry. I used velcro that already had adhesive on it, found in the sewing section.
My daughter loved them! Just as an FYI, the velcro sticks best on the furrier stuffed animals. I think these are so cute and love the stuff I find on Pinterest! If you decided to make your own and want to use the same dies, use my code POP to save 20% at checkout at Lifestyle Crafts.

Ooooh la la! Have you seen the latest release Love Notes from Lifestyle Crafts? It is simply adorable! There’s a lot to show you, let’s get started!
For this sweet project I used Valentine Matchbook, Heartbeat, Box & Lids, and Knotty Gift Set.
Here are few more views of the Valentine Matchbook…I love this one! As you can see in the picture, I added a layer of white paper to the top of the mini note, so you can the heart separately.
The bottom row of notes fit perfectly inside of the matchbook.
Here are some mini boxes made with the Heart Box die. I kept them simple and added some washi tape…aren’t they cute?
Next I have Valentine cards I made using Heartbeat. How fun are these? I love how easy these were to make and they’re CAS…my favorite kind of card to make! If you want to see the cards photographed individually, click on the picture and it will take you to my Flickr account. I didn’t want you to have to wait forever for the other 5 pictures to load! The sentiments are from Heart Prints (Papertrey Ink stamps).
This card uses Heart Insert, Nesting Scallop Squares, and Knotty Gift Set.
My last project uses the Mustaches die, Lollipop alphabet, and Snowflakes. I saw ornaments like this on Pinterest and thought it’d make a cute card!
I hope you were inspired today! Please remember to use my special code, POP, at checkout to receive 20% off your order…no minimum required!
Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday! I can hardly believe it’s the middle of December, there’s so much to do and I haven’t even started yet. *Grin* I am a lover of snowflakes and this one by Lifestyle Crafts is one of my favorites. The combinations are endless and oh so pretty! I also love my glitter and what snowflake is complete without a bit of bling? The background was cut with my Silhouette Cameo and is a file from the Silhouette online store. I don’t remember the name of the file (I have over 10k files) as it was cut last year for another project, I’m sorry in advance as I know it’s one that will be asked about.
My ornament also uses the 3D Snowflakes and I added a bow from the Knotty Gift Set. This is another set of dies that I use a lot, the bows are great for everything from mini boxes to cards, photos, ornaments, etc. Lighter weight card stock works best with the bow dies as it’s easier to shape the bows without making any creases or wrinkles in them.
Here are the dies I used:
