Life is Lovely

I've  made another 5"x5" card with a box envelope using Prima's "Zella Teal" paper collection. I've distressed all of the papers for this card and matted all of the papers using a light cream colored cardstock. For the first layer I cut the matte at 5"x5" and the "Collect Memories" paper from the collection cut at 4½" x 4½". My next layer I cut the matte at 4"x4" and then cut the "Floral Stories" at 3½" x 3½". I cut the sentiment "Life is Lovely" from the other side of the "Collect Memories" paper and added that to the front of the card.

For my flower cluster I used some Prima flowers from my stash that were different shades of cream colors.I added three in the top left corner of the card which I tucked a brown three loop bow into and added another small flower on to the bottom right corner of the card. Here is the finished card, I'd love to hear your comments on my card.

Grateful For You

Well for today's card I decided to use Prima's "Zella Teal" paper collection, these papers are just so pretty. I made the card size 5"x5" and matted the layers with a pale blue card stock, I also distressed all the papers. For the first layer I used the "Stone Rose" paper cut at 4¾" x 4¾" matted with the pale blue cardstock cut at 5"x5". The next layer I cut the matte at 4¼" x 4¼" and I used the "Floral Stories" paper cut at 4"x4". I then added the sentiment witch I cut from the "Live Loudly" paper and matted with the pale blue cardstock.

For my flower clusters I used 3 small teal rose buds from my stash on the bottom right corner. For the top left flower cluster I took some teal cardstock and made a bit bigger flower for the top corner. I then took some teal ribbon and made a double bow witch I tucked just under that flower. I added three more of the small teal rosebuds for the top cluster and called it done. I'm very happy at how the card turned  out and I'd love to hear your comments.

Just Because

Okay I think I'm addicted to these G45 "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. I had to make another card with them. This card is 4¾" x 6¾" and I matted all the papers with some matching pink cardstock and I distressed all the papers. For my bottom layer I used the A side of the Verdant paper cut to 4½" x 6½" onto the pink matting. For my next two layers I cut a piece 2" x 5" of the Pink Lillies paper and a piece of 1½" x 5" of the Golden paper and matted them both with the pink cardstock. I laid the smaller one overlapping the bigger piece and down slightly. Before I glued these two layers down I tucked a small doily underneath them and  to the right. I printed my sentiment off on my computer. Of course nothing is ever complete if you don't have flowers on it! I used some Prima flowers from my stash, the three main ones being a sort of peachy pink color. I then tucked in some pink and pale yellow rosebuds along with some other smaller flowers and die cut some leaves and tucked them in here and there. to finish the card off I made a double bow and tucked that just underneath the top left flower of the flower cluster. I was very happy with how it turned out. I'd love to hear your comments!

Hello Card

Hello, I'm back with another card using the Graphic 45 "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. I just love these papers. I made this card 5" x 5", with a box envelope. I used a bright yellow card stock to matte the paper layers and also distressed all the papers. For my first layer I cut the yellow matte at 5" x 5" and I then used the A side of the "Pink Lillies" paper cut at 4¾" x 4¾". My next layer was the yellow matte cut at 4½" x 4½" and then the A side of the "Midnight" paper cut at 4¼" x 4¼". For this layer I only taped three sides of the top paper and the yellow matte on the right side. I then tore the two papers on the right side towards the center of the paper so that I could roll the papers back as shown in the photo. I then added a small pale yellow flower and two small pink rose buds between the rolled papers. I then added a larger pale pink flower to the top layer where the tear in the papers ends. I added some tiny pink flowers along with some die cut leaves and tucked them in around the larger flower. I then die cut the hello sentiment and added that to the card.

I was very happy at how the card turned out. I'd love to hear your comments on the card. Thanks for stopping by. Here's the finished card.

G45 Floral Shoppe Card

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great Labour Day long weekend. All the kids here in BC go back to school today, which I think will have a lot of parents doing a happy dance, lol.

 I wanted to share a  new card I made using Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. This card measures 4¾" x 6¾". I used a pale mauve piece of cardstock to mat my layers with. For the first matted layer I used the Midnight Medley paper. For the second matted layer I used the Sunlit Medley paper. For the sentiment I printed it out in my graphic program onto the B side of the "Indigo Lilies" paper. I  made a bow using some mauve ribbon I had in my stash and tucked it between all the Prima flowers I used on the top left corner. I was quite pleased at how it turned out. I'd love to hear your comments on my card. Thanks for stopping by!

Sun Kissed Cards

Just sharing three new cards that I've made using Graphic 45's "Sun Kissed" paper collection. This first card I've made is a lift of Maggie Harding, one of Graphic 45's  Special Project Designers, easel card that she made using Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" papers. Here is my take on her card.
These next two cards are for all the mermaid lovers out there and I love the saying. With the first card I die cut the mermaid using a deep navy blue and I covered the mermaid with stickles to give it a bit of sparkle. I made the small rosebuds out of navy blue paper. I felt the mermaid kind of got lost in the papers so on the second card I used white card stock to help her stand out more.
I hope you like the cards and I'd love to hear your comments. Thanks for stopping by!

Memories Mini Album

Well it's been awhile since I posted any thing here on my blog. I've been busy making a  new mini album so I wanted to show it off here. The album is 7"x6" and I used Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection for the album. I love these papers but I find them a bit to "busy" for a layout but perfect for Mini albums and cards. Below the photo's of the album I have posted a short video tour of the album. Thanks for visiting and I'd love to hear your comments on this album.

The album measures 5" x 6¾", there are just over 25 spots for photos and/or journaling and pockets for memorabilia. For the front cover I added some Prima flowers on the top left corner and a pearl flourish from my stash.

Summer Visits

I don't get to see my daughter and son-in-law often as they are busy going to university and working, so I was very happy that they stopped by for a visit on their way to a friends wedding last month. Mitch is also like me that he hates having his picture taken so it was great to get this photo of the two of them.

I used Bo Bunny's "Serendipity" paper collection for this layout. I used the "Feathers" paper for my background page. I then took other papers from the collection and tore different sizes to layer under the photo. I also fussy cut one of the bird nests from the paper to add to the layout. I added other embellishments from my stash. Of course I can't do a layout without flowers from Prima and these ones are just so pretty. I'd love to hear your comments on this layout and thanks for stopping by!

Graduation Time

Well it's that time of year again, all the teens are getting ready for their graduation from high school and embarking on the next leg of their journey. My friend has a niece graduating this month and asked if I could make her a card for her niece. I really like the nice straight lines that black and white papers can give you on a card so I thought they would be perfect for a grad card.

My card base was cut at 4¾" x 6¾" and for the first layer I used black card stock cut the same size. For my next layer I used a black & white patterned paper cut at 4½" x 6½". I used a piece of white paper that had some black swirls through it cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I just happened to find a package of black, white and silver flowers in my stash (that I found at a second hand store for 50¢ -score!). I took the flowers and layered them to make three flowers with some pretty centers which I used on the top right corner of the card. I then used one of my die cuts to cut the "Congrats" for the card then added the year. I printed out the head and cap silhouette, which I sell in my graduation digital scrap kit here: Graduation Digital Kit. I'm quite happy how it turned out, here's the finished card.

Birthday Card

I've come to the conclusion that I need to get a job working for Kaisercraft. I absolutely love all of their paper collections and can't wait for the next collection to be released. I made this card for my sister for her Birthday, it's a simple card but with these papers from Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" collection it's so pretty!

I've made the card at 4¾" x 6¾". For my first layer I used some pink card stock which I distressed. My next layer I used the "Wishes" paper from the collection cut at 4½" x 6½" which I also distressed. I then cut a piece of pink card stock cut at approximately 3½" x 6½" and I used one of my Martha Stewart punches on both sides of the 6½" side and centered it down the middle of the card. I then used the green side of the "Fluttering" paper from the collection and cut it about a half inch narrower and used the same punch on that piece and centered it over the pink card stock. I had the pretty picture of the roses that I found on the internet printed out as I thought it would be great to use on a card. As luck would have it it went perfectly with these papers. I matted it with a pale green card stock and a pink card stock and added that to the card as shown. I then  did some fussy cutting of the flowers from the "Magical" paper and popped them up with foam pop dots and added them to the two corners of the roses paper as shown. I printed out the sentiment on my computer and added that to the card and called it done. I was really happy at how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!

Father's Day

I've made another  Father's Day cards to share with you. This one is just a different take on one of my previous cards. Instead of adding gears to this card I just wrapped the card with some string on the left side. A very simple card but one that I think is perfect for this masculine day. TFL!

Quick Cards

Just posting a couple of quick Father's Day cards that I made last  night. TFL!

Father's Day cards

A few more Father's Day cards I made. This first one using Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection is 4¾"x6¾". I distressed and inked all of the papers and added some foam pop dots to the anchor and the shell. I also added a few junkyard findings from Prima.
I used the Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection again on this card which is 4¼"x5½". I did some fussy cutting of the lighthouse from the papers which I popped up with foam pop dots. I added a couple of die cut anchors to the card.
This next card is another 4¼"x5½" one. I ran the silver paper through one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders to give it that metal look. I used one of my stamps of a motorcycle and added a couple of small gears to the card.

New Cards

A quick post to show off a few new cards I've made. This first card I made using Kaisercraft's "Golden Grove" paper collection. This is the first time I've actually made an apology card. I figured this would be a good card for a man to have in his stash to use at appropriate time, lol.
This next card was made for Father's Day using Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection. Lots of layering and used some foam pop dots to pop up the "Sea Breeze" saying.
This Father's Day card was made using left over papers in my stash and Die-namites "Cattails" die.

All Occasion Cards

These two cards can basically be used for any occasion. The cards measure 4¾" x 6¾" and I have distressed all of the papers for both cards. For this first card I have used Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" paper collection. My first layer I used some pink card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾". On my next layer I used the polka dot side of the "Magical" paper from this collection cut at 4½" x 6½". For the top layer I used the "Magical" paper cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I cut the "Never Stop Dreaming"tag from the back of the "Wishes" paper from the collection and matted it with some mint green card stock. I fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Moonstone" paper and added that to the bottom right of the card. I then added a double string bow to the top left of the card along with some Prima flowers. To finish the card off I added some liquid pearls to the top right corner.
For this next card I used Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. For the bottom layer of the card I used some mint green card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾". My next layer I used the pink side of the "Verdant Blossoms" paper cut at 4½" x 6½". The top layer I used Graphic 45's "Sunlit Medley" paper cut at 4¼" x 6¼". Before I glued down the second and top layer to the base layer I glued them together but on the right side of each layer I taped them down only a third down from the top and a third up from the bottom. I did this so I could tear the papers and roll the two layers back as shown. I added a small yellow Petaloo flower into where the papers were torn. I also added three of the same flowers to the bottom right corner of the card. I cut the "Make Your Own Magic" tag from the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden Wishes" paper and matted it with the pink "Verdant Blossoms" Graphic 45 paper. For the top left corner I added some flowers that I fussy cut from the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden Moonstone" paper and popped them up with foam pop dots. To finish the card off I added some liquid pearls to the top right corner. 
I was very happy with how the both cards turned out. I'd love to hear your comments!

Mothers Day Cards

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all of the Mom's out there! I'm a little slow at getting these cards posted on my blog.  My card base for these is 4¾" x 6¾" (cut at 9½" x 6¾" & folded in half) this way, since they can tend to get a bit bulky, they should still fit into a 5¼" x 7¼" envelope. I used Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" paper collection for this card.  For this first card I cut a piece of mint green card stock measuring 4¾" x 6¾" for my card base. I distressed all of the papers on this card. For  my next layer I used the "Wishes" paper from the collection which I cut at 4½" x 6½" and the top layer I used the "Magical" paper from the collection cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I added Prima flowers and ribbon from my stash and cut out a small banner sentiment on my computer.
For this "Best Mom Ever" card I also used the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden" paper collection. I used some pink card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾" for my base layer. I also distressed all papers for this card. My next layer I used a mint green card stock cut at 4½" x 6½". I then cut a piece of the "Wishes" paper from the collection cut at 4¼" x 6¼" for my next layer. For the top layer I used the "Magical" paper cut at 4" x 6". I then fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Moonstone" paper which I popped up with foam tape and added a piece to the top left corner and bottom right corner. I made and printed out the "Best Mom Ever!" tag on my computer. 
For these next two cards I used Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. I distressed all of the papers on these cards. The bottom layer I used the pink side of the "Verdant Blossoms" paper from the collection cut at 4¾" x 6¾". I used the green side of the "Midnight Medley" paper cut at 4½" x 6½". For the next layer I fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Midnight Medley" paper for the bottom right side of the paper and popped it up with foam pop dots. I then added some Prima flowers from my stash and printed out the banner sentiment on my computer which I also popped up with foam pop dots.
The next card is basically the same except I used a mint green card stock for the bottom base layer and pink card stock for the banner sentiment. 
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments! TFL!

New Cards

Not really in to the layout mode so I decided to do some cards up this past week. These are a bit of a lift of a card I think I saw on Pinterest. My card base for these is 4¾" x 6¾" (cut at 9½" x 6¾" & folded in half) this way, since they can tend to get a bit bulky, they should still fit into a 5¼" x 7¼" envelope.

For the two cards I made with Prima's Rose Quartz papers I cut some pink card stock at 4¾" x 6¾" to add to the base card. Note I've distressed all of the papers for these cards. For the "Choose Kindness" card I cut the next layer using the "Midnight Beauty" paper at 4½" x 6½". The next layer I used the "Rose Dreams" paper cut at 4" x 6". I cut out the tag "Choose Kindness" from the paper collection and used some pop dots on the tag and added it to the other layers. I did a lot of fussy cutting of the roses from the "Rose Dreams" paper and added pop dots to those also and then attached them to the top right and bottom right of the card and added a small pink bow as shown. To finish the card off I added a couple of Prima flowers from my stash and added a few small die cut leaves under the flowers. I made the "I Love You" card basically the same but switched the "Rose Dreams" and "Midnight Beauty" around in the layers.



The two cards I made using Prima's "Zella Teal" paper collection were made the same way as the other two cards except for the fact that I also added pop dots to the 3rd layer of paper to pop it up. I also did a lot of fussy cutting of the roses from this paper collection to add to the cards.  Here are the other two cards.

My last card here I made using Graphic 45's "Sun Kissed" paper collection. This was a pretty simple card. I used the same size card base, the first layer I used some peach color card stock to match up with the colors in the papers. I then cut my next layer using the "Sand Dollar" paper at 4¼" x 6¼" and after that I added the tag from the "Kids at Play" paper. I added to the bottom left corner of the card a couple of shells I collected from the beach along with a little Kaisercraft wooden anchor. 

I hope you like the cards and I'd love to hear your comments! TFL!
