ColourQ #148

Tuesday, July 31, 2012



As soon as I saw this photo that Arielle selected as color inspiration I knew I wanted to use the hexagon cover plate to mimic the design.


I hope you'll join us this week and create something with these juicy summer colors!
I can't wait to see it!

Little Love Notes

Monday, July 30, 2012


I used the piece I made for my blog header to make a little card for Ryan.  Every now and then I like to leave him a little note on his night table. 
 I know he likes them:).


Have a great Monday!

Life Is Sweet

Sunday, July 29, 2012


Life Is Sweet! 
 Now that I have this new stamp I see a new blog header in my future.


I used Maile's tip about cutting 1/4inch off the width of this card to give it more of a long, lean appearance.  I like the effect it gives.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

Wednesday, July 25, 2012



On my background piece I used a SAF technique that Nichole showed us for creating a tie-dye effect.  After doing that, I stamped and heat embossed leaf images and spritzed with a sparkle spray!  Love the effect.  I covered most of it up, but it does add depth to the background that I really like.


Enjoy the Hop!

ColourQ #147

How great are these colors?
I really needed to make a card for my nephew for his 11th birthday.  Loved the colors, but not sure how he'd feel about pink!  I just added the smallest amount....can you see it? 
I think it works and I doubt he'll notice it ;)


Have a super week. 
 I hope you'll join us!

Make Your Own Embellishments

Sunday, July 22, 2012





At it again!  I should be getting ready to go to a Baptism, but I had to finish All of the challenges!!
For this last one, Homemade Embellishments, I decided to make one of Melissa's bows.  I loved the impressed butterfly die technique so much I used it again.

Ok, gotta go! 
 I look forward to checking out and commenting on your SAF projects tonight!

Well, my craft room is certainly a mess after today. 
 Who am I kidding...I already cleaned it up!
I have to say I had a great time, but I have to throw in the towel.  I'm beat.  The last challenge, Homemade Embellishments, will have to wait until tomorrow.
Goodnight!

Card Set Challenge

Saturday, July 21, 2012







I chose to duplicate Jess's set because it is beautiful and truly quick and easy.  I loved embossing the butterfly.  After watching her video I saw the exact sandwich she used and tried it.  Worked perfectly for me! 


All I did was change out one of the colors and the packaging.  I don't sew so I just needed to make it work for me.  Love the idea of including the stamps too.  And the stickers for the envelope closure......so cute:)


Almost at the end.  Are you tired?  I am.
I have had a lot of fun today.
