Packed for Dad!

Packed for dad!

So I created the card that was universal and perfect for a masculine birthday or even father's day that is coming up in a few weeks. I used the pack for everything stamp for the previous Occasions Mini catalog.

To create the texture on the card believe it or not I used the Simply-Scored tool!! It is amazing what you can do with that tool, not just for making envelopes ladies!

This super manly and easy to make!

Simply Stated

Simple is beautiful and these are certainly beautiful. I made these as a set together and each card has a different saying on the outside from the "Friendly Phrases" Stamp set. I used baker's twine and the die cut flowers from the Occasions Mini. 

A beautiful close up....

Mother's Day-Sneak Peek

I wanted to share the Mother's Day cards that I made and give you a little sneak peek at the same time! I made these using the new "Floral District Designer Paper" that is going to be in the New Catalog! I also used a few other new things! The stamps that I used was the new "Betsy's Blossoms" stamp set also in the new catalog. For the wording on my cards I used the 'Loved ones' and 'Family Reunion' sets from the current catalog and the precious Occasions Mini.

I am in love with the new Catalog and the all the new product and I cannot wait to share more with you and I especially cannot wait to get you your new catalog! If you would like a catalog send me an email with all of your contact information, I will shipping them out memorial weekend. 

Mother's Day

 We Doubled up on projects this week in preparation for Mother's Day...This Wall art is what I created for my mom for Mother's Day and also what we made at Stamp Divas on Thursday night! I used the same wooden canvas as my other piece to create this. Distressing with brown ink gave it something extra that it needed to finish it off. There are so many other variations that you could try! 
Thought I would share a photo from Mother's Day before church. I am very blessed to have my two sweet kids!! Happy Mother's Day to my fellow Crafting Moms!
