I was so excited about my Papertrey Inc. haul that I had to make a quick card using one of their stamp and die sets. This card was easy to make. I love these stamps! Enjoy!
Ten years ago today I married the love of my life! It’s been the best 10 years of my life and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. He’s been there through the good and the bad and has backed me up on my decisions. He is my rock! Happy anniversary hubby. I love you!

This week was my hubby’s birthday. I have such a hard time with masculine cards. I love to create cute crafty projects and glitz them up. Cannot do that with a masculine card. I just bough some Bo Bunny paper so I was excited to give the paper line a try. I used the Welcome Home Collection. These papers worked well in my masculine card. I kept the lines clean and simple and I resisted the temptation to glitz it up. I inked up all the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distresser ink. I cannot say enough how much inking the edges makes to a project look better. The sentiment on the front of the card is just something I typed up on my laptop and printed on cream cardstock. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

When I saw this freebie cut from SVG Cuts, I knew it had my dad’s birthday card written all over it and his birthday is in just a couple weeks. He loves to fish so this was perfect. I added the SVG Cuts fishing lure (also a freebie) to the vest also. I gave the lures more depth by adding feathers to them. I love how SVG Cuts included a gate card cut with this freebie. I used Recollections cardstock and I flocked the parts where the lures are with gray Martha Stewart flocking. Have a totally twisted day!
Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card my sister-in-law asked me to make for her friend who is having a baby boy. Here is what I came up with. I love making baby cards; they are sooo cute and fun to make. The cut is a freebie from Kadoodle Bug Designs. Isn’t it supper cute! I cut in on my Cricut Expression using the Sure Cuts A Lot software. I wet embossed the letters on the blocks so they were nice and shiny. The ribbon and pearl trim are from my recent Hobby Lobby haul. Love that ribbon! The stamp and die cut on the inside are from My Creative Time and the designer paper is from The Paper Studio. Have a totally twisted day!
Kayla loves horses, so I searched the internet for a super cute digi stamp and I found this one from la-la land crafts. I absolutely fell in love with it. I printed it out on my computer and colored it with my Copics. The mats were cut with my Nestabilities and gave it a nice rustic look. I’ve been making a lot of swivel charms lately and I had some super cute antique looking western related charms and really wanted to try adding them to a card. I think it turned out awesome! The card layout came from My Favorite Things Wednesday Challenge Week 79. Happy Birthday Kayla!
Hi everyone, I’m super excited to share with you my very first card made from MFT stamps. Isn’t this girl super cute! This stamp set made it super easy to create a sympathy card — which are usually very hard for me to do. I just love how it turned out. I colored her using my Copics and I got to use my new Webster’s Pages as well as my I am Roses. Here is a video of my card. I’m entering this in MFT’s Wednesday Stamp Challenge #78. Have a totally twisted day!
I’m also entering this card in the following challenges:

I cannot believe another school year is over. Time is really flying by soooo fast. Thought I would share with you a card I made for a recent graduate in our family. I decided to do a card old-school style and didn’t use a Cricut. Rather, I used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities and fussy cut the graduation cap from the paper stack. The paper is DCWV.
Happy father’s day! I want to wish my dad a special happy father’s day and also want to wish my hubby a special happy father’s day. Here is one of the father’s day cards I made. I usually have a tough time making masculine cards but for some strange reason, this one came to me pretty easily. I made the ribbon by cutting 2 one inch strips 12″ long and then scored every 1/2 inch. The letters are Tim Holtz grunge letters that I colored red with my Copics and then heat embossed with red powder and then again in clear powder, which gave it a pretty cool grungy look.
