from the heart

Here's what I've been telling myself recently....I can't win if I don't join. With that said, I thought I'd get busy and make a little "something".


I wanted to keep the front of this notepad as flat as possible because it will be mailed. 


This digi image is from TGF and is called Cordelia, she is on sale right now too!

Thanks for stopping by, especially during these busy days!

Christmas Mini

This is what I've been up to lately....making mini albums using Kathy King's Interactive Mini Scrapbook tutorial. I've made a boat load of these minis and call me crazy if you must, but I just want to keep making more of them!

Miscellaneous papers, card stock, chipboard, a few embellishments, and photos from last Christmas make for a quick and easy album that goes together in a few short hours and looks great on our coffee table!



2014 Christmas card is front and center!


A little stamping behind the tags.


A waterfall of pictures from Christmas day. 

These minis are short, sweet, and full of wonderful memories!

Happy Halloween

I have another card for Halloween using TGF's adorable Beanie Anya, she's styling some awesome Halloween colors. I've seen this style of card for a while and finally thought I'd give it a try, it was lot's of fun to decorate and if I can find the tutorial I used, I will come back and update this post with a link to it.


I thought I was being clever when I attached the die cut to a transparency, the cat looks like it is floating doesn't it?!  Thanks to my crafting bud Marjorie for sending both the cat and transparency to me.... she's now the happy recipient of this not-so-spooky card.


I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!!

Black, Orange & Purple

Gosh, It's been over a month since I last posted....even though I've been crafting, I just haven't made too many cards. I just couldn't pass up ths month's challenge at The Greeting Farm which is to use the colors black, orange, and purple.

Here's my card using this adorable guy and sentiment from TGF's Spooky set.


I just love the spider web my friend Marjorie sent me  so I put it on a transparency and popped it with Kool Tack clear foam....such a cool product, you can barely see it.

Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your sweet comments!

Happy Birthday Danni /Flutter By Hop

A few of us have gotten together to have a Flutter By Hop and to wish Danni, the owner of the late Flutter By Wednesday blog, a very happy and fun-filled birthday today! Keeping Flutter By Wednesday in mind, we have all created a little something for Danni and have added a butterfly or fairy to our projects.

I've never made a pocket letter before but have wanted to since the first time I saw one on blogland a couple months ago. I love the idea of filling them with some crafting goodies and a sweet treat (or two)...and then mailing it to a friend.  Such a cute idea, right?!! 


I used the adorable Flutterby Anya from TGF and added lots of sparkle on her wings! The pictures look foggy because...well, because it's hard to take a clear picture through a baseball card protector sleeve.


HOP LIST:
.......Denice.......

Anyone can join the hop and leave comments! Danni will be offering two (2) separate gift certificates to people who leave comments. You have until Monday, September 7th to leave your comments. The winners of the gift certificates will be announced Tuesday, September 8th on Danni's blog.

Happy Birthday Danni!! 
I hope your day is filled with all the flutter-bys your heart can handle!
