Britta's Birthday Hop :)

Happy Birthday Britta!

The girls from Young Crafters Unite along with Kelly Marie Alvarez decided to throw a surprise birthday blog hop in her honor!   Britta is so sweet, and makes really fun cards  :)  I tried to incorporated some fun elements on my card- "stitched" border, washi tape, chipboard letters, and wooden stars!

I can't wait to hop around and see what the other girls made!

Good morning!  Today the Clear and Simple Stamps design team is sharing what you can do with a simple card recipe:

  • 1 button
  • 2 die cuts
  • 1 sentiment
  • 1 image
Here's my creation:

I really love how this turned out!  The button was the only thing I was initially stumped on, but in the end I think it looks cute where it is on the cloud.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the gals:


Happy Cyber Monday!

I actually don't think I have ever done online shopping on Cyber Monday...how about you? Are the deals good?

Today, in honor of Cyber Monday, Clear and Simple Stamps has put together a great step-by-step tutorial using QR technology!  In addition, I made a project using one of the codes from CSS.  In the last photo, you can scan the code yourself to hear a special message!  If you have a smartphone or tablet you can download a QR scanner for free :)

At first, it looks like a regular ol' gift box.  But if you look on the handle....

There's a QR code!

Scan above to hear the special message, and head over to Clear and Simple Stamps to learn how to create your very own Voice Memo Gift Tag!

I hope that those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a delightful one!  Today there is a new challenge at Young Crafters Unite, and this month we are celebrating the holidays.  I made a simple and clean card loosely based off of Kristina's Day 10 card. (I'm falling behind! She's already at Day 17!).   The elements from her card that I was drawn to include the snowflake background, use of twine, and white sentiment.

The rest of the DT has some great cards too...

I hope you play along!

Hi again! Today the Clear and Simple Stamps design team members are posting Thank You cards in honor of Thanksgiving.

I recently gave the card below to my building principal- she made the most amazing fall-themed brunch for all of the teachers!  She always does really sweet things like that...I hope she never retires!

Oh gosh- I just love those leaves.  They keep finding their way onto so many of my cards!  They are my new favorite go-to set.

I can't wait to see what everyone else made!
