There is alot going on in this card!  Supplies used: All SU- Welcome Christmas, cherry cobbler cardstock, ink and quilted satin ribbon, silver glass glitter, pewter embossing powder, Victoria Crochet trim, old olive cardstock and ink, vintage wallpaper EF, and BS.

Yet Another Simply Soft

I cased this card from pg 12 of the catalog!  But since my mom's favorite color is purple I used Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder!

Have a great day!

Photo Heart

Another great tutorial by Leigha Rock of  Diary of Two Crafty Girls.  I created my own DSP in My Digital Studio using a picture that we took while in Fort Bragg.  I also wanted my frame to look like wood that has been aged by the sea air- I dont think it turned out to bad??

Have a great day!

More Cupcakes!!

I was inspired by a cupcake purse for this project and just had to try!  This is my version of the "birthday in a box".

Happy Birthday!!

The picture really doesnt do the card justice, as it is really very sparkly.  I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the cupcake frosting and crystal effects on the cherry.

What I've Been Doing?

I took some pictures of the Simply Soft 3x3 notecard and box set, but didnt like the way they were turning out, so I decided to make a light box to photograph my creations!

3x3 notecard and box set.  The box idea was borrowed from Chiaki at

Paper Flower Bouquet

As soon as I saw the bouquet that Leigha Rock at Diary of Two Crafty Girls made I knew I had to make one too!  The only change I made was making mine yellow (although I think they turned out more ivory) instead of pink.

Starting Again

I have finally given my blog a much needed facelift!  I am committed to posting at least 3 times per week, but am really wanting to post daily (we will have to see how that goes!)  So since I have been working on the creation of the blog I dont have a crafty post for you yet, but be sure to check back later today!
