Card Share: You're Cool for Feed Your Craft


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I created for Feed Your Craft. I used a piece of flair from the new Birthday Wishes Part Color set. The cool thing about this set is that it comes in black and white, part color and full color!

Here's a look at the Part Color set:

Card Share: So Much Love (Bella Blvd. Valentina)


Friday night, Mary Ann Jenkins and I hosted a fun Super Bowl Scrap & Chat in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group. We chatted it up for an hour and then had two challenges. My challenge was to Get to the Heart of It. As you can see, this was the perfect opportunity to make a Valentine's Day card. :)

Paper Issues Pinspire Me: Donut Forget (Bella Blvd. Valentina)



I'm playing along with the February Pinspire Me Mood Board at Paper Issues. Here's a look at the inspiration piece Mary-Ann put together. I'm loving all of the beautiful love-themed images. If you're into mixed media, there's so much potential for using that as your springboard.


I was drawn to the images of the food, going with donuts instead of cupcakes and truffles. I also used plenty of red and black to go along with the black and white photo. If you'd like to see what other members of the design team were inspired to create, check out the Paper Issues blog today.

Create something based on this piece and post it to the Pinspire Me album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by March 6th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. If you share your project on Instagram, be sure to hashtag it with #paperissuespinspireme.

If you haven't joined the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group yet, click on the link above. Not only will you find a fun group of women, all with paper issues just like us, but you'll get advanced notice of sales, product arrivals, special discounts, advanced product previews and so much more! There's always something happening and it's a fun place to 
hang out. I hope you'll stop by to check it out. :)

Card Share: We Flamin-go Together (Bella Blvd. Valentina)


Do you like puns? Then you're in the right place! Today I'm sharing a sweet Valentine's Day card made with Bella Blvd.'s Valentina collection. I cut a 3x4 card from one of the papers, backed it with dark pink paper to make it pop and then simply embellished with machine stitching, a button, enamel dots and a banner sticker. I think it flamin-goes together quite well, don't you? :)

January Java Journal with Paper Issues: Can't Stop Thinking About...



Continuing on with my #januaryjavajournal, today I'm sharing a two-page spread based on the prompt, Can't Stop Thinking About...As you can see, this topic brought my Mom to mind. It's been 11 years since she passed away and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her. I have plenty of silly pictures of her and they totally make me smile. We used to tease her, that when she was gone, we'd never have any "normal" photos of her to share with future generations. I'm OK with that. I'd rather they see her silly spirit shining through.

I'm working on a couple more pages in my journal, so I'll share when I get a chance. If you'd like a look at all of the prompts-to-date, please visit the challenge album on Facebook. The good news is, this challenge was so well received, it's going to continue, on a weekly basis, in February.
