Card Share: 100% Quality


Father's Day will be here in another month so I thought I'd make a card for my hubby. I stuck with a classic color scheme — black, white and red — mixing a vintage die cut with more contemporary pieces. I don't create many masculine projects, so hopefully I achieved the right look.

Card Share: The Little Things


Alexa kept eyeing this card and telling me how much she loved it so I listed it in my Etsy shop before it disappeared, never to be seen again. LOL!

I adhered a number of elements from older Paper Issues Swag Bags, atop the beautiful gold star vellum from Crate Paper's Confetti collection.

I think this card would work equally well as an engagement card, anniversary card or wedding card, maybe even a birthday card. What occasion would you send it for?

Card Share: Create Happiness (Paper Issues Pinspire Me Monday)


I decided to play along with the new Pinspire Me Monday at Paper Issues:


My card was influenced by the color swatch in the middle row.

Card Share: Bloom


Once again, I used the April Swag Bag from Paper Issues and paired some of the 3x4 papers with the Simple Stories I Am collection.

The acrylic accents are from Color Cast Designs. I've been buying more and more of Jessica's products. They work perfectly on both cards and layouts and come in the prettiest of colors. If you stop by her shop, be sure to tell her I sent you. I don't get a kick back or anything. I just like to share when I find products I love.

Card Share: All Good Things


I used my trusty April Swag Bag to make this floral, spring-like card using papers from Fancy Pants Office Suite. Now that I've had a chance to try out 3x4 pieces of paper from the collection, I'm thinking of buying it all. I think it will be perfect for spring, garden and summer projects alike.

How about you? Have you used this collection? Taken a look at it? What do you think?

What the Devil Are You Doing?


I found this little gem on Alexa's phone. I have no idea what she and her friends are up to. Pair that with the headbands they're wearing, and that's how I came up with the title.

To create this page, I pulled everything that was red, black, gray and/or white out of my stash and got to work. I played around with product until I figured out what I wanted to use, which included a piece of a Paper Issues' business card ("Hello My Name Is"). There's new product on here and there's very old product on here. When it comes to a color scheme like this, I say it's classic and timeless.

I should probably keep everything out because one of Alexa's dance costumes is...you guessed it...red, black, white and silver and I know I'll be scrapping those photos soon.
