A Birthday Card & Lots of Valentines


Hi there! I hope you're having a great weekend!
There are a bunch of cards here today to show you. Some more of my Valentine's Day cards, but first off, an A2 size, kraft based birthday card made with older papers from my stash in a variety of patterns. You might recognize the two top layers, which are Marion Smith designs. I put on one of the Tim Holtz Ornate Plates to house my sentiment, which was stamped using the vintage Scrappy Cats Birthday set. There are also some Prima Say It In Crystals and one of their timepieces. The flowers are by I Am Roses.
Now if you'd like to stick around, please feel free to check out the next five of the Valentines I created for my family using the Simon Says Stamp January Monthly Card Kit. As of right now, it's still available here, which is incredible, because all the other kits for this year have sold out.






I hope you saw some you liked!

It's Your Day Pocket Card & A Few Valentine's Day Cards


Hello friends!
I've a very lengthy post, photo-wise. I have a number of Valentine's Day cards I forgot to post, so I'll add those on to the end of these next few posts.
My card today was created with some old Creative Imaginations papers I've had in my stash for along time. They're beautiful and I thought now was the time to bust them out.


I get to the point that I realize I really need to use some of these older collections up, and move on to something else. Why is that such a hard thing?


Along with the CI papers, I mixed in a little gold glittered corrugate from Hobby Lobby and gold Metallic Kraft from Tim Holtz. The gems are by Prima, as well as the flowers.
Now for my Valentines...






These were made mostly with the contents of my Simon Says Stamp January Monthly Card Kit.
More to come!

The Sea Calls to Me Birthday Pocket Card


Hey, dear friends!
It's in the seventies here today, so I'm thinking summer and sea. Although I'd rather be in the mountains than the seaside, the warm weather is welcome for wherever I am. 


I created this birthday pocket card with Prima's St. Tropez. I love the blue and green shades of this collection. It's one of their prettiest, in my estimation. 
I cut the doilies with a Sizzix die and matted the papers with gold Metallic Kraft paper.


The flowers are from Prima as well... two different collections, but both with those gorgeous beaded centers.
Just a quick post... I've got to get outside for a bit of air and warmth.

Thinking of You During This Difficult Time


Hello dear friends! Thanks for stopping by!
It's a rainy, cold Monday here... perfect weather for crafting. So, I will!


I have a simple Thinking of You card today. This is the type that are so hard to create... for a friend who has lost a loved one.
I pulled out a Kaisercraft paper pad along with a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest 110 lb Solar White cardstock for my card base. I've been using this cardstock non-stop since I received my first sheet in a Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit. The weight is just perfect. Along with these papers, I added some Metallic Kraft and an ephemera butterfly by Tim Holtz. The stamping was done with Altenew's Thinking of You set. Very straight forward... no frills.
Now back to my craft room for some serious creating!

Have a great Monday!

French Country Get Well Soon Pocket Card


Hello friends! I hope you're having a great day!
I have a Get Well Soon card to show you created from Graphic 45's French County collection from a few years back. I still have lots of the papers even though I've made a ton of projects with them. I must have really loaded up on this one, which is funny because now I'm not sure it's my style at all. I'm not going to let this go to waste though, so you'll be seeing this collection pop up every now and then.


This Prima bloom with the gold beaded center matched very nicely. For the sentiment I used Altenew's Heartfelt Sentiments set with Darice navy Ink It Up! premium dye ink.


I used several of the collection tags and pockets, and tucked in an Alterations Thinlits doily, too.


 I do like the chickens on these patterns, but I think my real draw originally to this collection was the blue.
That's it for now. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy 14th Birthday Pocket Card


Hello there!
The Penmaker and I have another busy week going, so I will make this a very brief post... lots of photos with little talk.







This is the birthday card I created for our granddaughter Penny's 14th. I used my Valentine's Day supplies since it was all on my desk and these are her favorite colors. If you have any questions about the making, please ask.
Have a wonderful day!

Prayers & Hugs Pocket Card


Hi again! Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday!
It's a great day to craft!


I created this card a couple of weeks back and am just getting to it to show you. It's one of those that are a combination of collections, mostly BoBunny, and some scraps and ephemera. I added a silver filigree to the corner... my last one... need to restock those.


This cute chipboard birdie is from Prima's Lyric collection from a few years back. That silver Metallic Kraft die-cut is a Cheery-Lynn Designs Border #15. The flowers are by Prima and the pretty pink half pearls came in my last Hero Arts Monthly Hero Kit.
Have a fantastic day, friends!
