Apple of His Eye, All-Occasion Card

Here's a really fast and cute card that can be easily tailored with any sentiment. It's an apple cut from County Life. The muted reds and green make it cheery but not strictly summer. Hope you enjoy it.

A sweet little card for a sweet little person. This card uses the circle feature on New Arrival to create the cute and simple stroller cutout. Add some soft papers, a few metallic dots, and a quick sentiment, and you're finished.  Thanks for watching. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Tri-panel Wedding Card with Window

Today's video is a card that starts with three panels and ends up with two, the center one containing a window which holds a scripture verse from Dee at www.deesbbboutique.blogspot.com. A new product to me is  adhesive cardstock from Core'dinations which works well with glitter.  Hope it sparks your creativity.

3 1/2" x 5" Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Here's another idea for a pop-up gift card holder, this time using a greeting card as the base. This size is large enough to send through the mail, and it still has the clever idea of the pop-up. These are fast, easy, and very versatile. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think.

"To Everything ... A Season" Card

The latest scripture card features Dee's art from Ecclesiastes 3:1. It's done in fall colors and uses a frame from Elegant Edges. I used a leaf punch and some burlap "ribbon" as accents. Hope you enjoy it. Stop by and visit Dee's blog at www.deesbbboutique.blogspot.com. I love hearing your comments.

Flowers and Friends Scripture Card

This second scripture card also features Dee's word art. Take a look at her blog, www.deesbbboutique.blogspot.com, and see her great work. The card uses both Elegant Edges and Country Life. I like the "old world" colors and the cheery scripture sentiment. Hope you do, too.


"A Lamp to My Feet" Card

For number 20 in my challenge, I'm indebted to a friend who let me borrow her Country Life cartridge, to Mary at cardztv.blogspot.com, and to Dee at www.deesbbboutique.blogspot.com. Dee's scripture art is really lovely. This verse is special to many people. I used the card for a birthday, adding the inside sentiment, "May God's word guide you and God's blessing surround you in this next year. Happy Birthday." This card is a new favorite. Thanks for watching. Leave a comment, please.

Award Birthday Card Especially for a Man

I wanted an easy card for a man. Thanks to some inspiration from Mary at Cardztv, I came up with this one. The award "ribbon" is on Plantin Schoolbook. What do you think of #19?

One Cute Frog, Two "Toad"ally Cards

I love frog / toad cuts that can work well in the expression "toad"ally. Create a Critter has a really cute one.  Dress it up or down, make the sentiment "'toad'ally sorry" or "'toad'ally happy," whatever you need. Hope these ideas from part 18 of the challenge are "'toad'ally helpful."

Airplane Card for Baby Boy

Number 17 of the challenge. This little airplane is perfect for a baby boy. It's part of the New Arrival cartridge and is both cute and easy to do. The blocks that spell "baby" are also really great. Hope you enjoy the card.

Jack in the Box Birthday Card

At last, number 16 of my challenge. I couldn't resisit going back to Nate's ABC's for this cute boyish cut. Hope you enjoy it as much  as I do.

Gingerbread Notecards, #3

I'm finally back with another video--part 14 of my challenge. This set of gingerbread comes from Winter Frolic. Hope you enjoy these little cuties. I love the border feature on this cartridge.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Inchworm Hello

"Lucky 13" in my challenge features this adorable inchworm from Nate's ABC's. I love this die cut, and its colors naturally coordinate with the colors of this great plaid. Pull out Nate's ABC's and look at all the super cuts there. Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear your comments.

Lovebirds Congratulations

After a few days' lapse, I'm back with part 12 of my challenge. This card, done in soft green and pink, features 2 "lovey doveys." The card is a 5 x 5" square. One of the green papers is shimmer paper. The pink is fabric. I used Kraft paper for the brown cage and white for the doves, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug herringbone folder. I used Martha Stewart's loop punch for the edges. This love-themed card would be perfect for anniversary or wedding occasions. Enjoy both the picture and the video. I love comments.
I'm entering this in three challenges: Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday: Fabrics, Dynamic Duos, and CAS-ual Fridays.

"Feeling So Sheepish" Belated Birthday Card

Well, I've done it again. I've missed someone's birthday. So, for the 11th installment of my challenge, I used Winter Frolic to create another belated birthday card. The sheep on this card are so cute. Hope you enjoy it. Please leave a comment.

The video--Turquoise, Navy, and Lime Birthday Card

Here's the how-to for the "Turquoise ..." card. Part 10 of my challenge features Elegant Edges (I couldn't skip it), and uses the layout from Freshly Made Sketches." Try your hand at this method of using chalks. I think you'll like it. Thanks for your views and comments.

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Happy Birthday in Navy, Turquoise, and Lime

This is my entry for the Casual Fridays challenge.  The flowers are stamped in white, then chalked over the white to help them stand out from the navy. Elegant Edges cut the frame and shadow. I also stamped the border print. Cuttlebug Swiss dots give texture to the mat and border. The sentiment is computer generated, cut with a window punch and place on ribbon and a mat. I really like this color combination, although I have to admit, I was skeptical.

"Soccer, Basketball, and Football" Birthday Card, the Video

It's part 9 of the challenge. This time I've used Sports Mania which has some really clever cuts on it. I choose to use soccer, basketball, and football, but there are many to choose from. Pull out your cartridge and see what you can create for the sports enthusiast in your life.

"Soccer, Basketball, and Football" Birthday Card


My entry for the Dynamic Duos #13 monochromatic challenge features a soccer ball, basketball and football in a masculine birthday card. The balls and the penant are cut from the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge. I think a sports enthusiast would appreciate this card.

Card Collectanea's Card-making Clues, Clue #2

Once you've made files for each of the colors and have sorted the solids and prints into their own manilla folders, what about what's left? You know, the papers that have multiple colors.

Probably you'll be surprised at how few there acutally are, especially in comparison to all of the others. I put them all in one manilla folder in its own hanging file. It will take a little time to sort through it, but so much less time than before without all the one-color pages. Put it at the end (after yellow) of the one-color files.

As a way subdivide it a bit, try putting anything Christmas into its own folder. If you do other holidays a lot, say Easter or Halloween, you might benefit from giving them their own place as well.

Now you're ready for the crowning moment. At your local department store, farm and gardern, plant place, or discount store, find a plant stand holder with casters on it. In our area, now is a great time to find them on clearance.

Using cable ties, string, or even strong twist ties, attach the plant holder to the botton of the crate. You'll instantly have a box that you can easily slide in and out from under a desk or table. When you don't need the papers, they're tucked away. When you need them, they're at your fingertips. Hope this helps.

Please come back soon, and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know what you think.

"Heavenly" Beach card

It's summertine, and to many people, a day at the beach is like a little taste of heaven. This is part 8 of my "Use My Cartridges" challenge. The featured one today is Everyday Paper Dolls. This cartidge has so many cute extras to go with the dolls. I couldn't resit the beach chair and the umbrella. Hope it brings summer to your thoughts.

"Heavenly" Beach Card

Who doesn't love a day at the beach? This "heavenly" card is my entry for the Freshly Mades Sketches #45 challenge and the Fabulous Fridays one-word title challenge from Frosted Designs. The card features a beach theme, using "water" paper and yellow to represent the sunshine. The video for how to make the card will come shortly. Hope it makes you think summer.

Collectanea of Card-making clues--Group 1, Storage, Clue #1

Welcome to the first ever edition of Card Collectanea's card-making clues. These are snippets I've learned, either from others or from experience.

                                                      The first group of clues concerns storage.

Maybe you have a workplace whose picture could grace the cover of a women's magazine, complete with custom made desk, shelves, paper trays, etc. But if you're like me, you've taken over a room in your house and tried to do the  best you can. Here's an idea that may help.

# 1. File all those large pieces of "leftover" papers. A crate (plastic with holes) will accomodate several large hanging files. In each hanging file, place two manilla folders--one for solids, one for prints. Have a file for each color. Example: Blue--one file for blue solids, one for blue prints. Prints may include only blue and a neutral (white, off-white, black, etc). Place all the folders in your crate alphabetically--black, blue, brown, green, etc. This way you'll spend much less time searching for paper, and you'll have more time for crreating.

Hope this makes your life easier. Let me know what you think.

"Happily Ever After" Card

Installment #7 of my challenge to myself. Today's cartridge is Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art. I'm not a cake decorator, but I really like the sentiments included on this cartridge--everything from "celebrate" to "happy birthday" to "happily ever after." The challenge with this cartridge is that I usually couple it with another one so that I can find the "picture" somewhere else. Today's card uses only Elegant Cake Art. I hope you like it. I think it's one of my favorites so far.

Are you feeling inspired to take on your own challenge? I hope so.  Let me know.

Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Part 6 of my self-to-self challenge. Today I'm using Create a Critter and an idea from Mary at Cardz TV. This little wallet-type holder is clever, fast, and versatile.  Hope you enjoy it.


Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Two Sets of Gingerbread Boy Notecards

Due to technical difficulties--mine, not the camera's--these cards are assembled already. But they are still cute. If you're a gingerbread man afficianado (like the lady who asked for them), or even if you're not, I hope you enjoy these easy-to-make, versatile cards.

"It's a Girl" card

I liked the combination of Beyond Birthdays and New Arrival in the "It's a Boy" card so much that I decided to make another card, this time for a girl. This is a slide out card that is also a gift card holder. I'm beholden to a Youtube video for the idea--particulars given in my video. Hope you love this little girl as much as I do. Please leave comment.


Monday, July 23, 2012

"It's a Boy" Card

Part 3 (although the video says 4) of my "Use Your Cartidges" challenge to myself features Beyond Birthdays--and includes New Arrival. I love the baby on this card. Hope you enjoy it.  Next cartridge up is Paper Doll Dress Up.

"Precious and Few Are Friends Like You" all-occasion card--video

The second (but not alphabetically second) video in my "make a card using each of my Cricut cartridges" challenge to myself. The cartridge is Stretch Your Imagination. Hope you enjoy it. Pull out your catridges and have fun.

Just me thinking of You, All-occasion card--Video

Here's the video for one of yesterday's cards, the first in my challenge to myself to create a card using each of my Cricut cartridges. Hope you enjoy it.

Friday, July 20, 2012

"Precious and few are friends like you" all-occasion card

Challenge #104 from Paper Players  http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/ is a Wordsmith challenge in which the sentiment is to be the main element. I combined that idea with my current personal challenge to myself to use each of my Cricut cartridges in a card. This installment, the second, uses Stretch Your Imagination, one that I've had for a long while but don't use often. The stamp is from Inkadinkado. The sunflower is 3 3/4" and uses the blackout, silhouette, and shadow features. Hope it inspires you to pull out those "seldom used" cartridges.

Just me, thinking of You, for Freshly Made Sketches

This is the first in my "Challenge Myself to Make a Card with Each of My Cricut Cartridges" challenge. Alphbetically first for me is "Accent Essentials." I used the eighth cut on the key pad and included three layers in each flower. The round flowers worked well for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.The white mat is embossed the Wild Dashes folder from Sizzix. The zig zig is cut from pink paper using Plantin Schoolbook. The sentiment, "Just me, thinking of You," is from TPC Studio. Hope you enjoy it. The tutorial video will be coming soon.

Rocket Birthday Card

Back with another masculine birthday card video, this time using the Nifty Fifties cartridge. This rocket is so versatile--birthday, congrats, new job,etc, and could be used with "far out," "way out," "out of this world," "reach for the stars" sentiments. Change up the colors and make it feminine. It might become one of my favorite cuts. Hope you enjoy it.

Monday, July 16, 2012

Masculine birthday card

I'm back from vacation just in time to make a send and few masculine b'day cards (three birthdays this week). The first is a red, white, blue theme with a classic bike on it.  The stamps are from Studio 211, and the ink from Tsukineko. The stripe paper is from Paper Studio. I'm putting it in the Freshly Made Sketches contest. After I stamped the bicycle, I ran it and the red strip through a Cuttlebug herringbone embossing folder.

Sympathy Card, Stamped and Paper Pieced Tree

Another sympathy card. This was says only "sorry," so it could also be used for someone who is sick or hurt. The tree has a homey, nostalgic feel. Hope you find inspiration from it.

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Sympathy Card, Stamped and Paper Pieced

Here's the latest in my current mode--paper piecing. I used a tree stamp, stamping it twice, once on green paper and once on brown. Then I cut out the two sections from the appropriate colors and layered the trunk on top of the leafy crown. The tree swing does so much to give this a homey feel, and the muted colors are just right for condolences.Two pieces of grosgrain ribbon and two brown brads complete the embellishments. Hope it gives you ideas as to how to send special wishes to those who need them.

Monday, July 2, 2012

Be happy card

This card is for the PCW color challenge.  The bee is from Sizzix, a small die called (appropriately) "bee happy." The card is happy and sweet. Hope you like it.

"Thinking of You" Card for Freshly Made Sketches, 41

     I featured one of my favorite color combinations--red, white, black--in this "thinking of you" card.  The flower is made from petals by Spare Parts (Hobby Lobby). I punched a smaller red flower and added a white one behind it.  I embossed the white sections with a Sizzix embossing folder, then added a red / white ribbon over the black section. The stamp is from Hampton Arts. After I had stamped and punched the sentiment with a window punch, I ran it through the same folder, matching it up with the background behind it. Small red gemstones on flowers in the embossed section and a larger white one for the center of the silk flower complete the card.



The card is my take on Sketch 41 from Freshly Made Sketches at http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/. I hope you enjoy it.

Another Long, Lean Gate-fold

This 4 1/4" x 9" gate-fold is like the birthday one in the latest video. I added one extra mat (the white one, 1/8" larger than the yellow), but the size dimensions and the other pieces are the same. It has the bright colors of summer and some small buttons to highlight its summery theme. Hope it makes you feel warm all over. If you tweek the tall envelope on the Plantin Schoolbook (8 1/4") using the Gypsy or Design Studio, you can get it to fit onto a 12" x 12" paper and make a nifty enclosure for your snazzy creation.

Gate-fold Birthday Card

A break from the A2 card. This one is a long and lean 4 1/4" x 9" gate-fold type.  It has three frame cutouts along the center and a couple of party hats to kick off its birthday theme. Hope you enjoy it and that it conjures up some creative ideas for a tall and skinny tri-fold in your near future.

Birthday Card Using Paper Piecing

While I was in stamping mode, I pulled out a favorite "oldie" and created this bright birthday card. The gift stamp works for weddings and Christmas as well and is easy to use as a pieced paper design. If you have stamps that have open spaces in them, paper piecing adds a new dimension to stamped images. Have fun with this idea.

Baby Animals Welcome Baby Card

I saw some so cute Stampabilites stamps just  recently and bought them because of the adorable elephant in the set. Here is the result. I added a giraffe and a bear, used colors that would work for either a boy or a girl, and created this welcome card. Hope you like it.

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Another belated birthday card

I can't really understand why birthdays that I know are coming seem to sneak up on me then pass me by. But they do. If you don't have my problem, you certainly could change this very easily to make it an "on time" birthday card. Hope you enjoy it.

Pocket album, like the one from Mary at Cardztv

Thanks so much to Mary for her great ideas and videos. This album is my take on the one she did before Father's Day. I hope it inspires you to create your own.

Wedding Card with Window and Charm

Finally another video. Maybe I'm stuck in wedding mode, but this little wedding cake charm was calling out to be used. Creating a window by using the center point feature on Cricut worked well and was quite easy.  Hope you enjoy it.

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Today's cards are two using the same photo, once in color and once in black and white. I used one from Printmaster, but you could use one of your own and make the card even more personal. These cards also combined a sketch, #39 from Freshly made Sketches, and ideas from the May issue of Cardmaker Magazine.  Have fun with photos. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Have a great day.

Father's Day card--just in time

I'm not early with this card, but at least it's not Saturday night! I love the combination of red, black, and white--and all their shades.  Hope this inspires you as you find just the right idea for your dad or other special man. Many thank to the folks at Freshly Made Sketches. Sketch # 10 was the one I used here.

Saturday, June 9, 2012

First-ever prize give away.

Summer is nearly officially here, and to celebrate the season, I'm giving away two sets of Life's Little Occasions dimensional stickers and a package of Scrapbook Adhesives 3-D Foam Squres. These product lines are two of my favorites. The camping and ice cream stickers are sure to fit in with your summer cards and page layouts. And who can ever have too many dimensionals? 

To enter to win, simply leave a comment stating your favorite paper craft and why it's your favorite.  Leave your comment by noon (EST) on Monday, June 11.  Later on Monday, I'll choose my favorite and declare a winner.  Anxious to hear what you have to say.

More pictures, #3--Father's Day card

Father's Day will be here before we know it. This card is for my dad.  I recently purcased the "Great Outdoors" Finshed in a Flash pack from Hot off the Press.  The papers and embellishments are very masculine. I know they're designed for scrapbooking, but they're perfect for cards, too. The card is a 5 x 7 from kraft paper. The envelope and the tag sticking out from it were included, but you could easily cut them from other paper. On coordinating blue paper in the pack, I wrote the sentiments and cut them out.  Placing them on dimensionals highlighted just a few of the things my dad has given me. Hope the card helps you with ideas to show your dad some love this Father's Day.

More pictures, #2--Masculine birthday card

It seems as though most of the men in my life have their birthdays and other big holidays in June and July. This card is for my brother who is turning 50.  I used the spider image from Cricut's Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I think that the hat makes the spider look more like a guy. The image is cut in the blackout feature so that I could stamp the face (Peachy Keen Stamps) rather than have the cut out one. I added glossy accents to the eyes and an Action Wobble to the spider.  The inside sentiment is "Don't let it scare you!" I think it's both masculine and fun.

I'm entering it in the Freshly Made Sketches #38 contest. http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/ I turned the sketch upside down.


More pictures, #l--It's a girl thing.

It's June, and wedding season is full swing. So is the time for creating scrapbooks to save the special memories.This is a 12 x 12 layout for a wedding album.  It has all the necessities for the "big day"--the wedding colors, flowers, bling, glitter, lots of trims and embellishments, and a large mat for the bride's favorite photo. Everything except the purple glitter background paper (from Joann Fabrics) I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  Most of it is Paper Studio. The borders are from K and Company.  I'm entering it in the "It's a Girl Thing" contest at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog   .http://craftyannschallengeblog.blogspot.com/.  Hope you enjoy it.

Baby Boy Mini Album

Another reason to love Cricut's Elegant Edges--the Book Feature.  Using cardboard, cardstock, papers, and miscellaneous embellishments, you can create a purse-sized album like this one for a newborn boy.  Have fun coming up with great ideas

Wedding Card Video, Z-fold Card

Happy Memorial Day. Thanks to all those who have served our country and to their families. Here is the video for the purple, black, and white wedding card. It's a Z-fold card. Hope it gives you lots of inspiration.

Wedding cards!

Tis the season for weddings, and the wedding card bug has hit.  The first one is a Z-fold done in purple, black and white.  Its dimensions are 4 5/8" x 6".  The hearts are from the Sweethearts cartridge.  The video will be coming tomorrow. 


The second is a more elegant design done in black, gray, and white.  It's a shaker card that has beads and small punched hearts in the window. The wedding cake was stamped on silver vellum with Colorbox charcoal chalk ink. The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  All of the frames on both cards were created using the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge--probably THE cartridge I'd miss the most if I ever had to give it up.


Happy upcoming June to everyone.

JOY Card for Freshly Made Sketches #36 contest

http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com

Using the #36 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I created this card. The base is a 4" x 5 1/2" white card.  I used a dark teal card stock as the first mat, and a burgundyish / dark red with pastel polka dots as the next mat (each cut 1/4" smaller than the prevoious layer).  Small squares mimic the mats.  I added a small pink heart to each.  The larger frame also has the teal and the polka dots.  To top it I added a dimensional flower bouquet sticker from Sandy Lion and cut a flower vase from a lighter teal using Cricut "Walk in My Garden."  For the sentiment I stamped "JOY" on a small white banner. I removed the pink bow from the flower bouquet sticker and replaced it on the neck of the vase.  Hope you like it.

Lined evelope to match the "True Friends Stick" card


Lined envelopes aren't nearly are hard as they may appear, especially if you have a scoring board of some type.  I used the Martha Stewart one. I really like the finished look of this envelope made from craft paper.

Friday, May 18, 2012

True friends stick, twisted easel card


A special thank you for a long-time friend. I had so much fun creating this card. The bubblegum machine is novel and so cute. Once again I used my current go-to paper--Sarapapers Retro.  Hope it gives you inspiration.

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Time for the latest video--another graduation card. This one is definitely "out of the box."  I had a great time making it, and finding a way to improvise a cut-out that I didn't have the exact cartridge for. Hope you enjoy it. Have a super week.

Friday, May 11, 2012

Speedy Recovery Card

This masculine-themed card is for someone recovering from surgery. Surprisingly, I didn't use Elegant Edges. This time I chose Nifty Fifties which has a classic car that works up very well. By changing the sentiment you could use this for any "manly" occasion.  Hope you like it.

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

The latest video, just in time for Mother's Day. Hope it gives you inspiration as you create for that special Mom in your life. Thanks for watching.

Don't you love diagonals!

After seeing a card in a Cardmaker Magazine from a couple years ago, I became enamored with the idea of mats that were cut on the diagonal. The watermelon card from the first video I made used the diagonal. Here are two others that I've done recently. Both use coordinating double-sided papers from a stack of 5 x 7 papers called A Family Affair by Momenta.


Here's an Easter card done in burgundy, gray, and yellow. The Bible verse from Matthew is superinscribed over the word RISEN. I used my computer and Printmaster to generate the sentiment. The card is 5 x 7. The cross and mat are from the Inspired Heart cartridge from Cricut. I hope this sparks your appreciation for diagonals and renews your awareness of Christ's sacrifice.


This card is for my mom for Mother's Day. She loves violets. I stamped the large image in Color Box Charcoal ink on light yellow and used some shimmery chalks from Oriental Trading to fill it in. Using the center point feature on my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge, I cut the image out at 2 1/2". The purple mat is 3".

For the strip at the bottom, I started with a piece of purple that was 5" x 1 3/4". I scalloped the edges with a Fiskars punch and did the same thing with a narrower piece of yellow. Using just one violet from the larger stamp, I stamped both ends of the yellow piece and colored it with chalk. The word MOTHER is another stamp done in Versa Magic Eggplant chalk ink. The green mat is 1". Small gold beads in the center of each flower complete the card. My mom will really appreciate it (and save it). I hope you like it too. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Fruitful Wishes Card Set

Welcome to Card Collectanea. Today's video is different in that it includes more than one card, but they are all assembled. Each one has a unique sentiment, but the designs are based around a theme. I used the Cruicut Preserves and Elegant Edges cartridges. Hope you enjoy them.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Ever miss someone's birthday but still want to send your best wishes? This little So Slow belated birthday card features a snail from the popular Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. A Z-fold design, it adds a touch of something different.  Hope you enjoy it.

The latest video. It's getting a bit easier and a lot faster. Hope you like this card.

A Melon Special Thanks

video

How is your Saturday?

Almost a week has passed since I expected to have a video posted. Today (I think) is the day. If all goes well, I'll have the first one and maybe even the second. Have a terrific day.

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Happy Sunday

Mary at Cardztv and others have inspired me and given me courage so that I'm nearly ready (I think) to post my first video. The card is nearly set. Now comes the camera.
