My Love...

I took this picture of Kayla last year, as she watched her sister play baseball. I love how sweet and innocent she looks!

I had some Bo Bonny paper that I have had for years, and so I thought I'd use it up for this layout, with some CTMH embellishments. I just love how it turned out!

Feather Sympathy

Recently I talked about my love for Feathers here. I wanted to create another simple card using Kraft paper and white ink, so came up with this little beauty. A great sketch and super easy to cluster your feathers together for a nice visual. I stamped one feather on a piece of Kraft cardstock and then layered it over 2 other feathers stamped directly on the card.

Love the look of the white pigment ink on Kraft paper.

Feathers...

Happy Thursday! I have recently developed a love for feathers. Everything feathers. I also love chevrons. Chevrons and feathers....hmmmmm.

Anyways, here is a card using our gorgeous Feathers stamp set. I love them all!


The sketch was found on Pinterest (and for the life of me, I cannot find it now - should have created a "Feathers" board!) I clustered them together and tied them with some hemp.The stamped lines in the background are from SU's Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, which I think compliments the layout so well!

A wedding congratulations...

Weddings are always so special - it's heartwarming to see two people destined to be together, celebrate with all their closest family and friends. You can just feel the love in their eyes.

Recently, a scrapbooking friend of mine tied the knot, and so I created a simple wedding card to celebrate her milestone.

I love grey combinations, and so I decided to use that color as my base. It's actually the reverse side of a piece of our retired black textured cardstock. This sketch is also an amazing way to use up scraps! I hadn't embossed in....oh....FOREVER, so I embossed the sentiment from this stamp set in silver. I love how it turned out!

Cardstock - White Daisy card base, Black textured (retired), blue (unknown)
B&T paper - Paper Fundamentals (Basic Assortment), grey glitter paper
Ink - White Daisy pigment
Stamps - The Happy Couple (D1539), sentiment from Cricut Artfully Sent stamp collection
Other - embossing ink, silver embossing powder (retired), SU mini heart punch

It's Your Day...

I embarked upon a new journey about 9 months ago, helping people get amazingly healthy, have loads of energy, feel like they were in their 20's again while building residual income to live the dreams they want to live.

Ironically my love for card-making comes in handy, because I love sending encouragement cards to new clients and team members. I love the Doodled Designs stamp; there are SO many fun things you can do with it! I paired it up with an older stamp set (You're Special C1220) because I loved the "Believe" sentiment. I have to admit I'm a sucker for swirly font!

Here it is:

Ink - Lagoon, Black
Stamps - Doodled Designs (A1170), You're Special (C1220 - retired), #30YearsofHappy
