I finally made a card!

It feels like it has been forever since I did anything with paper that wasn’t digital.  I owed a friend a huge thank you and made this simple but nice card for her.

Butterfly Card

I can’t say I made the butterfly but I do love it.   A friend sent it to me from one of our hops, a magnet hop.  The butterfly is a refrigerator magnet or whatever you like to use them on.  I did take some digital paper made a background and made my sentiment, a little twine and a nice message inside.   I am just thrilled to post something I made with my own hands!  I love it!

Thanks for taking a peek!

DT Tuesday – Need inspiration for some mesh ribbon?

Well if you do, I have something for you!  My daughter’s teacher is moving away and I wanted to make her something.  So I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of tags that her students can either sign, draw on like color code pink for bedroom yellow for kitchen, or whatever she like and use them for moving tags.  Sounds a bit silly to be to put a tag on a box but I couldn’t resist since I know that the memorabilia will be there in the end for her students here at this school.


Once I made the tags I had to have something to put them in right?  I saw this valentine tool box in the sillouttee store, I just took off the hearts and made it a tool box.  Using a thick card stock from DCWV Type Art, I cut it out and put this beautiful mesh ribbon around it.  Then when I started to put the handle on it wouldn’t stay so I put some jute wine ribbon on the ends


then a little twine put on her labeled tag from Abigail.


She loved her teacher alot and has been a very good influence on her this past year.  I was happy to make her something besides another thank you card.  I thought the mesh ribbon really topped off this project.  It really perked up my spirits to show off this new project!  If you would like to see what Jessi  has for a selection you can visit her open facebook group at  “My life in Arts n Crafts” , go ahead and browse through the fun stuff she has to offer.  If you like something you see,  just comment on that photos and she will send you an invoice!

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!
