More Teacher Cards

I have some more Teacher thank you cards to share today. I decided to make a set of 3″ x 3″ cards because I think they are just the right size to give with a small gift.

These have matching envelopes that fit the cards perfectly.

This next card I created with one of my new stamp sets: A Good Apple from Lawn Fawn. I was totally inspired by all of the great cards here on the Lawn Fawn Blog.

The chalkboard on this was fun to figure out. I ended up using Mowed Lawn Distress Inkto create the green background. I then smeared some white pigment ink to give it the look of a chalkboard. Fun!!

Mother’s Day Cards

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! I’ve been working on some fun cards for the occasion. I’m trying to offer as much as I can right now in my Etsy shop – and I also have been eager to use some fun dies that I purchased from Simon Says Stamp. These cards gave me the chance to do just that.

This first one I created using some Simple Stories “Hello Baby” paper. Really love the colors from all their lines.



These next few cards are a variation on this card by the amazing Laura Bassen. I used an old Martha Stewart Butterfly Punhch that I have had forever. Just love this punch and how simple, yet elegant these cards are:





Thanks for looking! I will be back soon with more greeting cards…gotta start thinking of ideas for Father’s Day! :)

8.5″ x 11″ Layout: 14 Months

The other day I was in the dining room with Henry – he was exploring, being a little mischievous and the natural light in the room was excellent. I looked over and saw my camera bag with my DSLR sitting on the floor and decided I should bust it out. I never seem to grab my real camera these days, and I need to be better about it. I got several super high quality candid shots of Henry just being himself and playing. I just love how they turned out, and knew that I needed to use them right away, in a layout!


I mean, this face…(mischief!)

…and this one… (SWEETNESS!)


I decided to pair these photos with some recent journaling that I had done about him. I kept things in a list format, as that is what I used when I sent myself the email with all these little facts about him at 14 months. It was pretty easy to just print out and scrap everything around it.


I had fun adding detail to this page with little embellishments. I used Echo Park That’s My Boy Kit for almost the entire page. (Plus some Thickers from American Crafts for my title). I (again) found that going with an 8.5″x11″ size was much less intimidating and it allowed me to complete this layout relatively quickly.

Love this little guy, and I am enjoying scrapping all these fun things about his life!

Some fun Paper Smooches cards

Today I am sharing some fun greeting cards made with the Paper Smooches Clear Stamps Free Spirits stamp set coordinating dies. How fun are these cards to give as something different? Love the stamp images in this set.

The background on this card was stamped with the Interlocking Borders stamp set from Lawn Fawn. – love the options for backgrounds with this stamp set – they are modern and funky!

I colored all the images with my Copics. I even used my colorless blender to create some “bubbles” in this mixed drink. I added glossy accents for shine, too. I think this card would be perfect to give to a friend or co-worker.

This last one is my favorite – the saying cracks me up! Ha! Again, I colored with Copics and added some glossy accents to make these look like real glasses of red wine. YUMMM :)
