Evening everyone. As promised back with another card tonight. I had to make this for my friend so that she is able to give it to a lady that is turning 60 this coming weekend.

I was finding it very hard to come up with inspiration, so once again I turned to Jennifer McGuire for this, I remembered a video that she made on crease and sand, so I thought what a great idea.

My card, I stamped in a darker pink, dots and flowers background stamp from Hero Arts onto a pink Hero Arts card (to do crease and sand you need to have a core white card). I then proceeded to score along the lines and fold, then sand each one back to reveal the core. I inked the core lines with Distress Ink, tattered rose and antique linen, then glued the pink cardstock onto some kraft cardstock to give it more stability. Once mounted onto the cream card from Hero Arts I then added some pink bling, flowers, brad, twine and sentiment to finish the card off.

Great technique that Jennifer provided, one in which I had not tried before but had extreme fun with. So thanks Jennifer for your inspiration, I hope that the lady likes the card.

Enjoy your night everyone and I will catch you all tomorrow.



Hi everyone! I hope that you are enjoying what is left of your weekend. As you know from my posts yesterday, I got to spend sometime in the craft room, I am hoping to be able to do that again this afternoon, just wanted to show you what I made with one of the poofy flowers that I constructed yesterday.

I decided to make a post it note holder, most of you have probably seen these from time to time on various blogs, my first viewing of one of these was on Kerry’s Paper Crafts blog, she makes some really great projects.

As we had run out of plain old notebooks to write on in our kitchen I decided to make a post it note holder for us and use my little poofy flower. All I did for this project was find a small document or photo holder (these are hard to find at cheaper prices, so if anyone knows where to get them could you leave a comment and let me know, I would be very grateful) I cut a piece of light pink cardstock to fit inside, stamped all over it with Inque Boutique Monarch stamp set in colorbox ink muted moods, velvet, slipped it inside the document holder, stamped a little sentiment that was stuck under the poofy flower, then attatched it to the top of the document holder and added the post it note. (Unfortunately, I had not noticed that I did not place the post it note on straight, but seeing as it was just for us, I wasn’t going to mind too much).

There you have it, very simple yet great gift for either yourself or for someone else.

I will be back again later with hopefully another card.

Enjoy your Sunday.



Hi Again. Just playing around in the craft room and decided to have a go at Dawn McVey’s poofy flowers, I don’t at this point posses any text paper (I need to get some), so I decided to use some of my double sided pattern paper to make these lovely little flowers. I also gave them a spritz with pearl Glimmer Mist, this was my first time using the mist and I absolutley love it, cannot wait to get my hands on some more. I just added a little button to the centre and all I need to do now is add it to a card.

This polka dot one is my favourite.

They are so sweet and easy to make, so thanks Dawn for showing how to make these.



Hi and happy Saturday. I have just spent the last couple of hours in the craft room having fun with my Papertrey Ink stamps. I loved my little bird card that I made the other night, so I decided to make another 3 that were similar.

They are all pretty self explanatory so I won’t bore you with the details of how they have been made, if you are wishing to know, just scroll down to the yellow bird one and you will get the general idea of how they have been put together.

I think my favourite out of this set has to be the purple balloon one. Maybe it is me, I just like purple.

I still am unsure about the little cherry one, not sure about the ribbon I think, still looks okay but undecided……….LOL.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, hope to be back either later with another post or tomorrow.

Bye for now.



Happy Friday everyone! Dosen’t that sound good…..LOL.

Unfortunately, there will be no card for today as I am at work all day and do not finish until late, so no chance of making one, hopefully over the weekend there may be a couple of posts for you to have a look at.

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday night and I will catch you all tomorrow.



Evening everyone. Sorry about the late posting today, I have been really busy cleaning the house, so that I can have the time in the craft room this weekend. Also lack of sleep last night causing me to start late on the house cleaning. Anyway, nearly all done.

I was also amazed that I managed to fit in making a card for tonight’s posting. I got to break out my Everyday Button Bits stamp set from Papertrey Ink, I have had these for quite some time and haven’t really had the chance to use them, so I was really excited when this little card came together. I thought that you could use it for Valentines Day or even a little baby card.

I used some Papertrey Ink lemon tart cardstock as the card base, stamped Darkroom Door dots background stamp in versamark ink on bottom of the card, embossed it with clear embossing powder, set it aside. I then cut out a piece of SBB white Cardstock from Scrapbook Boutique, with Spellbinder lables 8 die, leaving the die attached to the cardstock, I blended some Papertrey Ink aqua mist for sky and spring moss for the grass. I proceeded to stamp Everyday Button Bits, birds from Papertrey Ink, in Memento Tuexedo black ink and added Basic Grey lemonade buttons for their bodies, Kaisercraft pearls for their eyes, stamped two little wings in a colorbox ink, bisque, attatched all pieces together and placed Stampin Up dimensionals to image and sentiment before being placed on the card base, lastly corner rounded the card with We R Memory Keepers corner chomper to match the spellbinder die and added some little glitter hearts from Heidi Grace signature heart accents.

Most of all products used apart from Papertrey Ink and Stampin Up, were brought through Scrapbook Boutique, great website!

I thought that this little card turned out quite sweet.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at today’s card and that you get to relax for the rest of the evening.

Thanks for stopping by.
