I made a card a few weeks ago using another die, Meadow Leaf (Memory Box) but layered it to make it stand out. The impression plate (Canvas & Linen, PTI) is one of my favorites and I love the subtle texture of it! I inked the edges of the kraft leaf and adhered only the stems to the card base.


Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful day!


How cute are these juice boxes? Lifestyle Crafts hit the mark with the Juice Box die. My kids were all over these when they saw them and I can’t say I blame them. They are excellent party favors and the perfect size to fill with candy.


This is the die with the labels. Love how you can choose the small squares or a fancier label. It was quick and easy to put together and worked well with Friendship Jar Summer Fillers stamp set.


Makes me want to go get some lemonade with strawberries or maraschino cherries and crushed ice! Yum!!! Don’t forget that using Promo Code “POP” will save you 20% at Lifestyle Crafts. Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Monday! Just a quick post today. I love this impression plate from Papertrey Ink but hadn’t used it yet. I colored the butterflies awhile back and thought they’d work well with the background. The tag is from Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags & Accents (another great die set!) and the sentiment is from Lovely Leaves, also Papertrey.


Are you sick of seeing me use this set yet? LOL! Thanks for bearing with me! 🙂

MF Gingham

Yet another post today!  I hope you’re enjoying your Friday so far.  This card was made for the Gingham Challenge…gotta love the gingham!  I can’t say I used gingham in an innovative way, but I still had a great time watching the card come together.  I used Nesting Pinking Squares for the adorable gingham pinking square. The peony is from Pretty Peonies (PTI) and the sentiment is from Botanical Silhouettes (PTI).

DP is from Lost & Found and the paper tape (I’m not sure what it is, but it’s not washi tape) I used to make the banners are from Anna Griffin.  Don’t forget to use Promo Code POP at Lifestyle Crafts for 20% off all orders. I think this might be my Mother’s Day card this year!   Hope you all play along with the challenge, thanks for stopping by!

It’s my 2nd post today and I have a few things to share with you. I’m finding the dies at Lifestyle Crafts to be very versatile and oh so useful.

LC CD Holder 2

First I have the Disc Case Die, which is obviously meant for discs…or great for square cards that have dimension to them. It’s a perfect way to make a custom envelope and/or giving as a gift with a CD full of pictures for the grandparents.

The butterfly is from Pretty Peonies (PTI) and matched the Basic Grey DP I used so nicely. I love that the Disc Case Die comes with 4 different tags to mix/match. A little something for everyone!

LC Nesting Frames 9

The 2nd project uses Nesting Frames 9 and Nesting Butterflies. Nesting Frames 9 comes in a nice variety of sizes and is wonderful for layering. The largest die is a little over 5.5″ wide and seems huge. Perfect for scrapbooking, making larger cards, and cute little tags, I can tell I’ll be using these a lot.

Smooches Bon Bon 2

If you’re like me, then you probably have lots of dies. I have old ones, new ones, metal and digital ones, love me some dies. This card uses a retired Bon Bon die from QuicKutz. Yum yum! I almost used the same phrase as my card, “Go To Your Happy Place” but then changed my mind. This sentiment is from Chit Chat at Paper Smooches. 🙂

Fore Your BD 1

Do you know any golf lovers? This card uses the sentiment from On The Links from PTI and another QuicKutz retired die, Putting Green. Now, if it were up to me, I’d be adding bling somewhere…on the green or flag, but since it’s meant to be a neutral CAS card, I had to leave it be. Ha! Thanks for stopping by!

Yum! I love coffee/tea themed stamps and this mini set by Papertrey is adorable! Ever have those mornings where you roll out of bed and this is what’s on your mind? I treated myself (and my husband) to a venti this morning…hellooo weekend!

I caved and bought some new stamps (shhhhhhh!!!)…I’ll be sharing my Paper Smooches haul soon…stay tuned!
