Paper Sizes: Chevron Strips: 1/2″ wide Pool Party card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ Happy Birthday circle size: 1-7/8″ Calypso Coral circle: 2-3/8″ I mentioned last week that I’ve been playing with the Layering Circle Framelits a lot lately. I’m happy to say that they are growing on me! I’ve been experimenting more with layering different size circles and scallop circles like on this Happy Birthday card. Moral of the story: The more you play, the more uses you’ll find for your supplies! This card is one that I made for the July One Sheet Wonder Card Club. This month’s…

By | Cards | 314 Comments

Hooray, it’s my birthday today so I thought I’d share this Hooray card that I made recently. This is one of those cards that looks much better in person.

In other words, I’ve got creating to do. But I digress, here’s the card… Paper Sizes: Striped Paper: 3-1/2″ x 4″ Peekaboo Peach: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Flirty Flamingo: 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper…

Flirty Flamingo Watercolor Thank You Card

Watercolor Thank You Card

By | Techniques, Thank You Cards | No Comments

This is one of those cards that I wish you could see in person because the photos just don’t do it justice. One thing you can’t see in the photos is the shimmer and shine that covers the pink part of it.

Have you looked through your catalog for ideas lately? I’m constantly going back to it for card layout ideas as well as color combo inspiration. For the fading watercolor background,…

Make Cards with Pretty Paper Scraps

By | Birthday Cards, Cards, One Sheet Wonder Cards | No Comments

Crafters tend to have a hard time throwing things away because you never know when you’ll need it for a project! That includes skinny strips of patterned paper. They are just too pretty to throw away!! Paper Sizes: Calypso Coral card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ Pool Party: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Dotted Paper Strips: 1/2″ wide There was no mathematical wizardry to how I put these dotted paper strips on the card. I just started with my base piece of Pool Party card stock and then taped the strips across so that they overlapped both ends of the base piece….
