Get Well Soon

Good morning, crafters.  Today I am sharing some cards for people who are feeling poorly.  When people aren't feeling great, a handmade card can really bring a smile to their face. 

For the sentiment on my card, I tore a small strip of vellum, stamped "Get well soon" on it with Staz-On Ink.  This works so well with stamping on glossy surfaces.  Once the ink dried (just take a few seconds) I wrapped the vellum strip around the pretty, floral, background paper and glued it to the back.  Next, I stamped some floral stamps onto small white squares and matted them with turquoise paper. I glued the squares across the top of the cards, as you can see in the picture above. Lastly, I glued down the entire background with stamped images attached to the turquoise card base.

And if you are going to make one card, you might as well make a few more of the same card.  You can always alter the sentiment and type of images for each card, too.

Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

Good morning, crafters.  Today I have a beautiful sketch from Sketches In Thyme to share with you.  

I just love how this sketch has spots for up to four photos on layout.  I tend to only put one or two photos on a page normally, so this was a fun change from my usual style.  

This pictures are of the kids having a joint family birthday party at our house.  I love the heart background in this layout, but it is rather busy so I kept the embellishments simple.

Have a great day!

So Happy Together

There's nothing better than a road trip...especially in my convertible mustang!  We had the top up on this ride though, as we had a ton of stuff in the back.  We were off to take a road trip to Las Vegas to visit some friends.

I created the page using The Scraproom Monthly Kit.  I've been getting their kits now for the last few months and I just love having four collections with some coordinating embellishments come together every month.  (And no, I don't receive compensation for saying that.  I just like the kit.)  The layout came together in under half an hour.  You can't beat that!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Faith is the Bird...

Good afternoon and happy Friday!  Today's cards are for encouragement.  I just love the wording of the stamp by Crafter's Companion.  It reads, "Faith is the birth that feels the light when the dawn is still dark". 
These cards will be perfect to have on hand for when someone needs a little cheering up.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and get a little crafting time in.

Thanks for stopping by.

Easter Egg Hunt

Today's Easter layout was from a couple of years ago when we visited our friends in Henderson.  We had so much fun participating in their neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt.  The Easter Bunny put in an appearance, too.  I just love this picture with our combined kids in it.  The big kids didn't even seem to mind.  

Thanks for stopping by.

For Any Occasion

Hello, crafters. Today I made a card, using bits and pieces of various collections that I had left over from other projects. I try not to hold onto too many left overs, but sometimes I just like the papers so much, I can't bear to throw them away. This trifold card was created for the purpose of using up my scraps, as well as a bit of ribbon and a bling.

Since I didn't have a particular reason for creating the card, I did not stamp a sentiment. That way when I'm pressed for time, I can use it for any occasion.

Hope you are having a great day.
