A Lovely Thanks

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has been lovely! (tehehehe)  It has been a fun filled week with the Lovely paper packet, don’t you think?

This card was partly made from leftover pieces from my desk!  The Thanks die cuts were from a card that I was going to do a video on, and life got in the way!  The Kraft paper and white daisy were smaller pieces on my desk as well.  It’s awesome to be able to use other layers to strategically hide things!

I know it’s somewhat hard to see, but there are ballerina stamped dots above and below the blue belle banner.  Add some ballerina liquid pearls, and it just tops off the card!  I did a row of those same dots on the inside of the card.


I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects made with the Lovely Paper Packet this week!  I would love to hear what you have thought of everything!

Thanks for stopping by!

Party Time meets Every Thank You

Yaaay!  It’s Friday!  That means that there is another project with the Stamp of the Month!  January’s Stamp of the month has been so fantastic for making thank you cards!  It’s hard to believe that there are only just a couple of days left to be able to get it!

This card was sooooo fun to make!  It just came together so quickly!  Even with the extra little ‘add ons’ that I kept doing!

So, this card uses the Party Time paper packet, with a bit of mink and lemonade papers tossed in, too!  I love how easy it is to use the Thin Cuts to give the card extra pizazz!


That adorable little envelope!  it’s so cute!  and it fit this heart stamp so perfectly!


I even gussied up the inside!  it’s fun to have the nice little surprise on the inside when you open it up!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you like this fun little card!  All the items are linked below!

January Stamp of the month meets Whole Latte Love

It’s a new month, which means another new Stamp of the Month!  This one is one that everyone could use!  We all should be sending thank you cards, right?  This set gives you so many ways to say thanks!  And!  It’s free for VIP customers with a qualifying order! 

This card was so fun and easy to make!  I loved being able to use so many different products with it!  (and you could use ANY paper that you have in your stash, or any of the new papers available today!

I did a quick video, that I then sped up for you to watch how I made it!  I was inspired by pattern 25 in the Make it from your Heart volume 2 for this card set up!

I hope you enjoy it!

I can’t wait for all the craftiness that will happen this year!  Watch over the next week for different challenges and such that I will be adding to my blog!

Have you shopped your stash today?

I was teaching a class the other day, and didn’t have the paper pack that the class was designed for, so I had to improvise!

So, what did I do? I shopped my stash, of course! The class used a bright happy paper packet, so I wanted to keep with that theory, and have bright happy colors!

I think I ended up with papers from 5 different paper packs! The class turned out great, and the ladies loved it!

Today I am going to share just the cards from the class, so, remember to put your Make it from Your Heart books to use, and use up those scraps!

I would love to see how you are using YOUR scraps! I do hope you will share with me!
