Quick & Easy Confetti Celebration Stars Card


Today's card showcases one of my favorite things... stars!! I started drooling when I saw the Stars Framelits in the new catalog! This is a quick and easy card to put together, because you can cut out all 3 stars in one zip through the Big Shot! And the Magnetic Platform makes it even easier - just sayin' :).


Once the stars were cut out, I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 5-1/4" x 4" and adhered it behind the stars using Stampin' Dimensionals®. I also embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with Crushed Curry and added a Tangelo Twist bow!

This card is sure to bring a smile to someone with its' bright and cheery colors! Thanks for stopping by today!

Pinwheel Fancy Fold Card with Video!


Today's card showcases a fancy fold that I'm calling a pinwheel fancy fold. It's a great way to showcase our two-sided Designer Series Paper! This card measures 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" and fits in our medium envelopes.

To create this card, the diagonal scoring plate for the Simply Scored makes it super easy! Here's a video showing you how easy this is to make!

(Click on the title of this post or on the image above to access the video!)

Here are the measurements for the score lines:

Diagonal score lines - 3" on all 4 sides
Straight score lines - 1" on all 4 sides (only halfway down)

Thank you for stopping by today! I have a new video setup, so let me know what you think!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you! I meant to post this yesterday, but the day got away from me. It was our Lillie Louise's first Christmas and what a magical day! She loved the wrapping paper the most :).  I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating with your loved ones.

I just wanted to share with you with a couple of photos: one of our Christmas stockings that I made using Stampin' Up! fabric and this tutorial and one of Lillie opening her first gift with our puppy Kona. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!




2013 Christmas Card


(inside of card)

Here's our Christmas card for 2013!  I took my inspiration from a card in the Holiday Catalog and just changed a few elements.  The color scheme comes from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I personalized the inside with a picture of Lillie that I printed using my Zink Happy printer.

I want to wish all of my blog readers a blessed holiday season!  Enjoy your time with family and friends and take a few minutes to relax.  We're excited to celebrate Lillie's first Christmas!

Holiday Treat Holder


Today I'm sharing with you the holiday favors I made for Lillie's daycare friends.  These were so fun to put together!  I CASEd Mary Fish's creation - just perfect to hold a Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark square.

These went together in a jiffy!  Simply cut a piece of cardstock to 2" x 5-1/2" and punch both ends using the Angled Tag Topper punch (available January 3 in the Occasions Catalog).  Then, add two score lines at 2-5/8" and 2-7/8".  I decorated the fronts first before I folded the score lines and then I tied the bows using baker's twine.  I folded back the sides of the chocolate square wrapper before I slid them into the holder and then added a couple of glue dots between the square and the holder to keep them in place.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Let me know if you have any questions!
