Best Wishes

I loved the color combo with our NEW In Colors of Crushed Curry & Soft Suede together. It's a very soothing color combination.

I started with Whisper White as the base of the card (8-1/2 x 5-1/2) and layered our NEW In Color Crushed Curry (4 x 5-1/4). Then I took a piece of Whisper White (2-1/2 x 4) & stamped the flower using markers. Stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the Whisper White & round the corners. Wrap a piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around the Whisper White & adhere to the backside. Punch a strip (1-1/2 x 4) of Soft Suede cardstock using the Scallop edge punch & adhere to the side. Mount it near the bottom right corner.

Tri-fold card



This was a very easy card! And it turned out so cute! There's no stamping at all! See below for instructions.

It's actually very easy when you follow the instructions...it just looks confusing.


I used the Trifold-shutter-card instuctions from Sandy Hancock's blog.


Here's written instructions:


Score a 5 ½” x 12” rectangle of card stock at 4” and 8”.
Cut a slit 1” from each long edge, starting at 2” and ending 10”.


Score above and below that slit.
Fold on all scored lines of the top and bottom sections, alternating Mountain and Valley folds.


The two center score lines between the slits are folded in the opposite directions.
You may also cut the slit at 1 ¼” or 1 ½” in depth, depending on the size of the images you want to use to decorate the card.
For a different style of Tri-Fold, score at 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10”.
The 2 and 10” folds are Mountain.


The 4” and 8” folds are Valley folds.


Clear as mud?

3D Roses water bottles a'la Sarah & Stella

With all of those extra 3D Roses I made, my nieces wanted to make their very own altered water bottles....


This is Sarah...she's 6 (almost 7 according to her).



And this is Stella....she's 4.






And they are the loves of my life.

Thanks for looking.

water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink...

I had a bunch of these little mini Arrowhead drinking water bottles and thought that I'd recycle them into something cute.




I couldn't find anything remotely close to what I was looking for, so I designed the holder myself.


Here's what I came up with...
