Chocolate Folder

I thought I'd share a chocolate folder that I made using Urban paper.

Do you get it?  If you're on the edge, open the folder and stop (see the stoplights?) for chocolate.  I thought it was good silly fun using the Urban complements!

I cannot take credit for this idea.  HERE is the link so that you can make them!  I am so glad that we can all learn from each other in this big crafty world!!

Thanks for stopping in today!

Snowflake Winter Card Kit

I was thinking that it would be nice to make an all-occasion card kit for the winter month. While I was watching some of my Close To My Heart teach on Creative Live this morning, I put this kit together.  I think - no, I know! - they inspired me greatly!

The glacier houndstooth sheet in the Zoe paper packet is perfect for winter cards and snowflakes!  These cards are also be stamped on the inside with a strip of houndstooth paper and silver shimmer trim.  Let me show you an example of one:

For this card set, I have used an amazing all-occasion set called Sending Love:

When you purchase this kit, you can purchase it with or without the stamp set.
$13.00 shipped without stamp
$24.00 shipped with stamp

Even if you purchase the stamp set, your kit will come stamped!  I just know you are going to love this one for later use!
  • Pre-cut and pre-stamped paper 
  • Die-cut snowflakes from the Artistry cartridge
  • 5 cards and envelopes
  • 4 feet of silver shimmer trim
  • Full package of clear sparkle
  • Photo directions
  • Sending Love stamp set, optional
I will mail the kits starting December 1st.  I think you will LOVE these snowflake cards!

Oh Boy!

I have spent an over excessive amount of time the last two days working on this layout.  It's not that it's overly phenomenal (other than the subject and product!), it's just that these are photos of Shane from 1993.  Whenever I go back to the little boy days, I tend to linger, fuss with the embellishments, and spent a little time than normal just thinking on that time in our life.

I haven't had much time to scrapbook lately, and it felt good to sit down with this gorgeous paper and these oh-so-cute photos.  Memory keeping is the reason I started my journey into paper crafting.  I love to make cards and create decor and gift items.  However, memory keeping is still where my heart lies!  
You don't see any journaling because I often will journal on the back of my layouts.  That blank 12x12 canvas gives me a lot of room to write my thoughts, and it keeps it somewhat private.  Shane knows that I do that, so it won't be a big surprise to him one day.

Product used for this layout that can be found on my website:
Adventure Paper Fundamentals
Adventure Paper Fundamentals Complements
Black Fundamentals Assortment
Black and White Daisy Cardstock
Blue Shimmer Trim

(Cricut cuts used from Cricut Design Space are from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge.)

Do yourself a favor and pick up some paper and create.  It's really, really good for your soul!
Thanks for stopping in today!

Artwork Sales for Operation Smile - SOLD

Every morning I wake up and realized how richly blessed  I am.  

Because of that, I really want to continue to help Operation Smile this year.  You know, it's not about vanity for children with cleft palates.  It's about a life-changing surgery that can help them eat and drink.  It costs $240 to do one surgery on a child, and that's what I hope to raise by the end of the year with my artwork.

So you are going to see posts where I am selling the artwork that I share.  Underneath the description, I will have a PayPal link.  Unless noted, I will only have one of each item, so you might want to follow my blog so that you can see the items I am selling right away!  Whether a card or scrapbook page or home decor, each piece will be wrapped safely for shipping.  I will remove the PayPal link when it is sold.  You will also receive a handmade card from me as my way of saying thank you!

100% of your purchase price will be donated to Operation Smile!!

Okay, first up is this oh-so-cute banner I made with heavy chipboard coaster for my Extravaganza class at Convention.

Each coaster measures 4" x 4", and they are securely connected with twine.  The accordion-folded flowers are secured with Liquid Glass, and I used Georgie paper.  This is a cheerful piece for any room in the home!!

Thank you for stopping in to visit me today and for your continued support!!
