Photo1 (1)

Just a simple card with cuttlebug folder on some pink paper I inked some purple layering the top and edges, then matted it with the folding part of the card,  wrapped some funky string I found in my drawer and added a bead,  I thought it turned out pretty cute!  Another great use of scraps!

Note @ 3:51 PM today

I loved your comments so much that I had to just make another for a boy… so how’s this take on it?  I used a shimmer stamp pad, then another light blue of those little boxes you get near the check stands at the craft store.  A note paper clip and that is it!  Matted it with a white card, (that is where I used the light blue color, a little cash will ad a smile!


It looks a little messy but I don’t think he will notice !

My life in Arts n Crafts Design Team Post 5/7

Well spring is upon us and as I have said recently that I am itching for the bright colors of spring about this time of year.  I love the bright pastel mixes with the bolder colors, and here I have created it with Jessi’s twine and ribbon from her Etsy shop at

My Life in Arts n Crafts Store.


It is just the basic card but with the striped ribbon of yellow going with the polkadot background.  I drew a little flower in Photoshop and circled it with a PS brush, printed and was going to cut with a cameo, but decided to fiskar punch it.  Very simple and easy, 5. x 4.5 card.  If you like that jute and ribbon head on over to Jessi’s blog for more inspiration and check out her project, they are usually very amazing and well worth the trip. Plus she gives a coupon code every Tuesday for those who would like to purchase some!  We don’t know how long that coupon code will last so grab it up now while you can!

I surely hope you have enjoyed this post and gave you inspiration for a quick and easy card on the fly, but yet very pretty.  I would love for you to subscribe to my blog if you would like future updates, just add your email in the box at the top right of the side bar and I can come right to you!  Dont’ worry, I don’t post a bunch so I wont’ spam you a way!

Have a wonderful week!  I am hoping to be crafty this week being on vacation and all but those kids and family keep me going with baseball games, yard work, and more…!  I am good with that though cause I Love my family more then my craftiness, so that is ALOT!


Krazy Crafting Crew’s “Banners” Blog Hop


Where ever you go you see a banner weather you are driving down the main street of town and there is some festival going on, or a birthday party or on cards and layouts.

So this month the Krazy Crafting Crew is going to show you all different kinds of banners they have made for fresh ideas, maybe birthdays, weddings and more.

Our hostess today is Liz from


If you have stumbled upon the hop and would like to start from the beginning we have the full line up below to help you navigate through.

So let’s get started… I really love banners on layouts and cards.  I love to make short ones too for like a little girls room with her name on it.  I think they are as cute as can be.  Here I used DCWV Sunshine stack, and Sunny day’s Stack as well.  They had banners in the stack that I cut out and just added random papers to fill.  I used some twine  for the banner, it is funny because I cut the banner from below out and then made another layout with the left overs from the first banner!  I think these little tiny ones are as cute as can be!



I may have shown the Graduate pictures before I don’t recall doing a layout but if I do find one, this was preschool graduation, I can just fill in with Kinder graduation instead!  I love the way these layouts turned out.  I have a tutorial on how to photograph your layouts on my pages, but this time I did completely opposite!  Since buying the scrap-n-easel, it made it so easy to have it at the right level and take a great photo while it is attached flat to the easel

I hope you have enjoyed this post.
