It’s Friday and you know what that means! I have another sweet project to share from ADFD. This yummy cluster is called Vintage Strawberries and is one of my favorites. I have it on a card, but it would also be lovely on a box, album, or scrap page.


The new challenge is to add some script, so my background paper reflects that. I used Copics to color the image and used Nesties to cut the circle and scallop.

Check out the $2 deal…isn’t he the cutest? Be sure to come play the challenge at ADFD, hope to see you there!

Come see what the rest of the DT has whipped up for you!

Today I’m sharing a set illustrated by Emily Burger called Bon Voyage. What an adorable set! This set is perfect for Valentines, love notes, fun notes, cards, scrap pages…there’s lots of possibilities with this set!

My card today is a Joy Fold card and was fun to make! Here’s the tutorial and if you haven’t made one of these, Beate’s tutorial is easy to follow and a fun way to present a card.

Echo Park Paradise Beach patterned paper has such a fun style to it and worked well with my colors. I used Choice Snow White and colored the image with Copics.

The Wave Border die was a nice way to complete the scene and was stitched onto the card front. All sets come on a full color panel and store perfectly in the Mini Binder Boxes. You can fit 4 full sets to a box. The Petite set panels will store perfectly in the Petite Storage Cases and will fit 6 sets to a box.

Here’s the die I used today:

Today I have a few projects to share with you using Lifestyle Crafts’ new Corner It Kit and 4×4 Alphabets. Can you say WOW? The Corner It Kit dies are beautiful and are wonderful for tags, cards, photos, journaling squares, and the list goes on. I made a set of tags using the new Corner It Kit and combined it with the Tag It Kit. I used the new 4×4 Alphabet, Parade, on these and they were the perfect size for the tags.


This is what the dies look like AND if you have a digital cutter, you get a code for the cutting files included in the box.

Corner It Kit


Here’s a card using the Corner It Kit, Nesting Butterflies, and Tag It Kit. DP for the tags and card is from Lily Bee Design Buttercup…my new favorite DP!


I have two more cards to share using the new 4×4 Alphabets Parade and Lollipop.





This card uses Lollipop and the butterfly is from Make It Amazing (Taylored Expressions). Again, I used Lily Bee Design Buttercup DP…did I mention I love this pack? 🙂


My last card uses the new 4×4 Alphabet Parade and Ramsay from Whipper Snapper Stamps. A simple, but cute, birthday card, perfect for a little one.

Happy Monday, everyone! I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge at Desconstructing Jen and this is what I came up with. This was a fun challenge and one that kept me thinking.

I used Make It Amazing by Taylored Expressions (aka TE) and the coordinating butterfly dies. The gorgeous roses are Prima Laraine Roses and the chic DP is Lily Bee Design – Buttercup. The paper in this pack is gorgeous and I love the muted grays in it!


I added some pearls to finish the card and used Copics (W7, W5, W3) for the butterflies. Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Clownin' 2

Happy Friday, everyone! This past week has been a whirlwind and I’m so happy the weekend is here. This adorable clown is from the May Club Kit and is available for members today! This month’s club kit is really sweet and if you’re interested in learning more about the Club Kit, check it out here. Be sure to check out the DT’s cards (links are in the sidebar), they all rocked it!

May 2012 Club Kit 1

I used clear dome stickers to add dimension to the balloons. This sweetie was colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen. I don’t think I could go without my white gel pens. I buy them (Gelly Roll) in a pack of three at Joanns. If they get stubborn and the gel stops writing, then I roll them in the palm of my hand until it flows again.

I’m leaving you with this week’s new release, Love My Bunny…gotta love the sweetness! Don’t forget to take a look at the $2 deal for the week. Thanks for stopping by!


I’ve had my eye on this stamp and die set for awhile now. I was so happy to see it at Joann’s last week and used a 50% coupon on it, which made it a great deal! This card was cut for something else but it worked well with the butterflies, so I used it anyway. I used Circle Nesties to cut the frame and adhered the large butterfly to the inside of the card.


The butterflies were colored with Copics and I love the dimension this card has. Next month I’m taking the Copic Certification class and I’m so excited! My coloring skills could use some instruction and of course, I’ve been a huge fan of the instructor, Debbie Olson, for a long time! Yay! I will let you all know how it goes, I can’t wait! Thanks for stopping by!

I love this little bird from Whipper Snapper.  It was one of my favorites back when I got and it still is.  This time I used black for the card base and accented it with a white gel pen.  I don’t remember what stamp set I used the ‘Hello’ from, but it fit perfectly in the Quickutz circle and nesting flower dies.  Image was colored with Copics.  Enjoy your day!
