Happy Heart

In amongst all the other specials that came out in December, the new Seasonal Expressions launch on January 1st and  National Papercrafting month is this beautiful paper collection called "Happy Heart" was released.  It is lovely and will be available until the end of February. I have done a few projects with it and I am planning some beautiful layouts!  Here is a quick Valentine's Day Card that I created for my make and take for my open house a few weeks ago. I know the card isn't "perfect," but I like that the stamping is a little off and my card has a few imperfections, just like love. Happy Crafting!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #301

I feel like the rabbit from Alice In Wonderland running around saying, "I'm late!".  Like everyone else a ton is going on in our lives and on the one hand I know I am totally blessed to have so much, but on the other hand, I really like to nap... As many of you know, I am a very proud member of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and hate it when I am late with my submissions (or miss them entirely), and well this one is a little late!  But super cute! Using the Something Fierce Paper Collection and our beautiful 2-toned cardstock this card came together quickly.  I wanted this card to be bright, clean and simple, oh and more "boy"! I think I achieved it although with clean and simple cards I struggle with wanting to add distressing and extra ink and extra embellishments and... The cupcake and sentiment are from the Years of Sweetness (D1827) stamp set, and the cupcake shape can be found on the Cricut Artbooking Collection (#M45678). I used the retire

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #299!

I started this weeks sketch from AHSC totally planning on following the sketch and things kinda changed a little along the way... Using the lovely Happy Heart Paper Collection  (this is a current special with CTMH and only available until the end of February), I put  together this super cute card very quickly.  Other products that made it so easy are the Stitched Heart Thin Cuts and the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts  (love the stitching detail!) I added a bit of Silver Shimmer Trim and a little piece of  White Twine  and my card is complete. Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Happy Crafting!

It's snowing! This is big news where I live!

All through November and December, I had every intention of posting all the cards from my annual Christmas Card Workshop and of course, life had other plans!  But things seem to have calmed down just a smidge (don't want to jinx it!) and I am back in the craft room.  This challenge from the Colour My Heart Colour Dare Blog came across my Facebook feed and given that we are having our first snow of the season it feels like a great day to share 3 of the cards from the Christmas Card Workshop. It is really had to see in the photo but I finally got to use the Christmas Lights embossing folder from a few years ago!  I have tried using the folder sooo many times and it just never "fit" but on this card it did!  I used the Oh What Fun paper collection and the super fun sentiment is from the Cricut Season of Joy Collection.  The skirt is from the Cricut Artist Collection.  Also hard to see in this photograph is that I sponge distressed the edges of my base with Raspberry i
