heartfelt thanks


I have a quick card to share today that I made using the new Avery Elle set Red & Goldie.

I used the matching dies, Red & Goldie Elle-ments
and the tree silhouettes from Let it Snow.

Retrosketch #112 and a goodbye?

Good Morning!

It's Saturday and that means it's time for a new RetroSketch challenge.

This one is from our new DT member Erin. 
Isn't it fabulous?

Her original card (here) is just so bright and eye catching, I love it!

Again I made the sketch a tad smaller to showcase it a little more, allowing it to be framed.

The arrow "paper" was made using a little adorable arrow from the TAWS Arpil set Bee Unique. The sentiment and little heart bubble are from Trees Company.

So the goodbye comes in here.
 I am stepping down from my TAWS DT spot, hopefully temporarily. 
Things have been a bit crazy around here lately, and although I ADORE "working" for Alison, I need to shift my focus a bit more onto my family. 

Be sure to head on over to the RetroSketches blog for some amazing inspiration with the new sketch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

And just because, here's a few pics of one of my favourite bosses!!

RetroSketch #111

Good Morning!

It's time for a new RetroSketch challenge, and this week's is based on this ADORABLE card by Arielle.

I decided to use it on a bit of a smaller scale!

The sentiment is from TAWS' set Bee Sweet and the little hearts are from Bee Happy, the super cute mini that comes free with a $40 purchase this month at the store.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog for more fun inspiration using this week's sketch.

Happy Easter!!

be unique!!

Good morning!!

I'm here today with a quick share using the new TAWS bee unique and bee happy sets.
(be happy is the free with $40 purchase set this month!)

The hexagons are from Bee Happy.

To make the sentiment, I used the "bee" available in the Bee Unique set. Since I didn't use a bee image on my card,
I masked off the second "e" with washi, inked it up, removed the washi and stamped. 
It worked wonderfully!

To colour the end of the banner pink,
 I stamped the hexagon on the end trying to line up one of the points. 
It's off a little but but I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

more watercolour fun!

Hey there!

Now that I've tried the whole watercolour thing I am in LOVE with it.

All of my most recent pins have been watercolour in nature. :)
Using my Distress inks has worked perfectly.

For this one I used Avery Elle's new set Brushed.

BIC #51 revisited

Hey there!

Today I have a quick share, 
another card made using this month's TAWS Be Inspired Challenge photo.

Again, the polka dots took over so here's another one. :)

I cut the "love" out with my Silhouette (CK puppy love font). The rest of the sentiment is from Flower Doodles, and the birdie is from Birds of a Feather.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Storybook Clear Stamps Avery Elle Custom Panels Custom Steel Die

I have been in awe of all of the gorgeous watercolour cards that have been popping up lately and finally decided to try it out for myself.

Now, I don't have any watercolour paints, 
but I do have a LOT of Distress Inks. 
I just smooshed a bunch of different blues down on my craft mat, 
spritzed it with water,
 then grabbed a paint brush and went to town.

I stamped the stars in versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

I just love how it turned out.

Here's the blog hop order, just in case you didn't start at the beginning.
Start at Jamie and work your way down the list for some jaw-dropping inspiration!!


Thanks so much for stopping by today.
