Thank You

Standard

I received a wonderful RAK right before Easter.  It came at a time when I was having a bad day.  Talk about a wonderful and instant pick me up!!  I was all smiles after that.  I think everyone should practice the art of sending RAK’s.

I sat down and made a thank you to send to Heather B who blessed me with that RAK.  Here is the thank you.  The card stock I used for the card was chocolate chip so I put a scalloped circle on the inside to write my sentiment to her.  I hope she likes it!  I had so much fun making it.

Until next time…

Nesting Tag

Standard

I finally completed the nesting tag.  I purchased this kit from Donna Downey.  You too can purchase it here.  I had a lot of fun making this tag, as well as my ocd kicked in and I had to clean and reorganize my crafting desk.  I know, I know, get over it.  But I felt better! 😀

I hope you enjoy!

Completed Tag

A quick tip for the tag, when getting ready to stamp the back tag, I laid the front tag on top and used my distress ink on a sponge and inked where the windows would be.  Much easier to see where to stamp the words.

A funny to leave you with….have I mentioned how much I LOVE adhesive?!

Until next time!

How Cool!

My Donna Downey tag kit arrived today. I never order kits online. Nope, NEVER. I love the stamp set included in this tag kit. I will be making it tomorrow and posting it after. I’ll also link you up where you can order a tag kit of your own. I could be a downer and say I was disappointed in the shipping/handling charge. But I’m not going to. Why? Because this is just another excuse to craft. Like I need one anyway! pfft!

So tomorrow be ready for awesomeness. Donna Downey is a very talented artist and I’m excited to be making one of her tag designs!

Until next time..

Ahh my new blog!

Standard

I have a new craft blog!  About time, right?!  I took a break from blogging while I decided which blog site to use. While making those incredibly difficult decisions 😉  I did still craft.  I’ll bring you partially up to date.  And no, this isn’t everything I’ve made recently.

I still participate in the birthday club at Splitcoast Stampers.  That is SO much fun!  When I make these cards, I make approximately 15-20 at a time.  I love making the scallop cards because they are easy and quick to mass produce.  I’ve decided I will use these until I hit August then I will switch to a new card.  That will be a year of using them, so everyone on my list will get new ones.  And of course, I’m usually late.  But not after this weekend!  I will post about that later.

Ok, so here is what I’ve been doing!  I will post a tutorial later on how I make my scallop birthday cards. I know they are everywhere but I just love them!  And you will notice how I use both ribbon and baker’s twine.

My scallop BRAK cards.

Simple, easy and enjoyable!  Best part of making scallop cards.

Until next time!
