Pretty In Pink…And Gold!

Did you happen to catch the new Hey Mama! kit on social media yesterday? It's here just in time for your Mother's Day. I decided to have a little fun with them last night and whipped up these cards in swift fashion and Minc'd away!   You turn anything shiny and it doubles the pretty factor, right? :) Want to make some of your own? It's super easy. Get the Hey Mama! kit (haha). Download both black borders here. These come from freepik.com and the original color versions can be found here and here. I modified it a little and [...]

What’s On Your Itinerary?

I think we live in a time of lists. Things to do. People to see. Agendas. Planning. Food. I don't think there will ever be a time when we don't make a list for something. And hubs hates it when I 'text him a list' for the grocery store. ;) That's why I think it's great way to document what's going on in your life--include all  the lists and itineraries and agendas. Check out what Miss Marcy did in her journal here!     [ Stamps |  Travelogue ]   Here's what Marcy has to say: So, I’m not the most technically [...]

Send A Card Today

If there's one thing that spring brings, it's color and freshness. My mind and soul actually crave it. I mean, how can you blame a gal after a few months of dull and grey. You want those pops of color again--inside your home, what you're wearing, outside everywhere you look...and even in your mailbox. How lovely would it be to receive a card like one of these from Miss Nichol! [ Designs | Borderlines #3.  Stamps | Fresh Air / For You ]   It's like a lovely breeze just drifted through your home if you opened one of these! [...]

Hand-stitched Holiday Cards

Hand-stitching is something I don't have the patience for (okay, maybe it's that I don't have the skill for it too). This look adds such a charming element to so many mediums, including paper. And nobody does hand stitching on paper better than our Miss Paige! Take a look at the amazing work she did on these holiday cards!   Here's what Paige has to say: I just LOVE the Better Not Pout and Oh What Fun holiday designs and chose one image from each set to turn into handmade cards. I used my Silhouette Cameo to draw the images onto [...]

Creative Holiday Giving

If there's one thing for sure, bags and cards are a much needed item around the holidays. And strangely, even though we're sharing our December projects from a couple months ago right now, this would actually be the perfect time to make some and really be ahead of the game! And today, we have the lovely Laura sharing to tell us all about her amazing holiday creations! While photo cards have become a favorite of mine when sending out Christmas cards to family and friends, I always like to have a few handmade cards on hand to add a more [...]

Hello There Card Adaptation | Bees Knees

Remember yesterday how I said that my brain was swirling with Valentine adaptations for cards in the Hello There class (that's on sale until Thursday). Yup. this happened.   Using the soon-to-be-released bee stamp image with my Minc. A lovely combination, if I do say so myself! One note. I might Minc it before doing your Silhouette Print+Cut. I did it after and so the cut affected the toner on the bee. In the end I'd prefer a nice smooth gold, but in the essence of conserving my precious gold ;), I opted not to redo it. hmmmm.....now what else [...]

Take Time To Stop and Smell the Embossing Powder

I've been in the middle of a big project. It's exciting. It's nothing 'creative' in the 'buy me' sense, but it's huge and thrilling, nonetheless. Yesterday I decided that I needed to stop what I was doing and create something. I was having too many choices thrown at me and the decision making was overwhelming. I decided I needed to do something simply. I had purchased these tags from Thatch and Thistle on Etsy and they were screaming at me to make some Christmas tags! minimalist. With the help of some KBS stamp combos and some American Crafts embossing powder, [...]
