Quick Birthday Card

Here is a quick birthday card using the stamp set Birthday Wishes for You. I also used the new Celebrate You thinlets which are available as a Sale-A-Bration gift if you purchase $100 worth of product. And lastly, I used the Picture Perfect Party 6 x 6 paper stack. Quick and easy, yet handmade so it will have special meaning to that birthday person!

Happy Crafting,

Birthday Twist and Pop Card

As promised, here is the Birthday card I made.  Now I do have to share with you that I made both of these cards, 10 Valentine Post It Note Kits, and 4 bookmarks -- all in one day!  I've had a friend helping me get better organized in my store, and things are just so awesome now.  

THANK YOU, Evonne!  

Now onto our project.  If you took my Twist and Pop class, this will look familiar.  If you haven't and want to, let me know.  I have two classes scheduled -- one on the 17th and one on the 24th to make these cards.  When you take my class, you also get the tutorial so you can make more of these at home!

For this card, I used the Blushing Bride cardstock in lieu of the Garden Green I used yesterday.  I wanted this to be a little softer.  The new owner of this card will need to color or request I color in the appropriate age.

For the inside, I again used scraps on the sides.  I added some Wink of Stella to the flames on this card for a little more bling.

I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I do!

Happy Crafting,

Twist and Pop Valentine Card

I was challenged by a friend to make the same card patterns into both a Valentine and a Birthday card.  First is the Valentine card.  What do you think?

I absolutely LOVE this Valentine card.  I made this one first since we're close to Valentines Day.  If you need a Valentine Card, come out and see the different cards I have available!

 I used my Hearts Framelits to cut the hearts and stacked on top of the front of the card using dimensionals.  

For the inside, I used two different Paper Pumpkin stamp sets to create this.  As in class, I used paper scraps to pop the sides of each panel.  

Contact me if you have any questions.  Remember, I'd love to see some of your creations after taking this class with me!  

Come back tomorrow for the birthday card!

Happy Crafting,


Valentine Stand Up Post It Notes

I now have some Valentine Post It Note Kits available in my store.  

Remember, when you purchase a kit, you get the tutorial emailed to you.  You need to have stamps, ink, and any other embellishments you wish to use.

Happy Crafting,

Craftroom Update

It's been a little swamped since Monday so I  haven't crafted very much!  But I do need to finish my tutorial for the Twist and Pop cards that we made on Tuesday.  I hope to get that done this weekend.  Next on the agenda is the February 13th Valentine Craft Class I have scheduled at the Branson Community Center.  

We will not meet on the 27th because Tracy, the Manager, will be out of town that week and the Center will be closed.  In March, we will be making the four panel cards I posted earlier.  Here's a reminder!

I hope you have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday for some more inspiration!

Happy Crafting,

Card Class Reminder

We will be making these two adorable Twist and Pop cards tonight!  Come and see what is planned for February 13th and March's class! 

The insides are just as cute, don't you think?

I'll be busy the next couple of days unpacking military items for my other section of my store.  But don't let that stop YOU from crafting!
