Paper Smooches: Paw for a Cause

Hi Everyone! First up I want to let you know that there will be an AWESOME Paper Smooches release party over on Splitcoast tomorrow, December 31st, starting at 10:00 EST HERE. I'll be there and I hope you will too! :)

Next up is another card I created for the Paper Smooches December release. It uses Paws for a Cause and Lucky Dog. There is also a super fun dies set that matches the theme called Dog Icon Dies.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm looking forward to a fun day playing with new product, crafting with a friend and enjoying a few board games with my kids!

Paper Smooches: We Click

Hi Everyone! I'm back again with another card I created for the Paper Smooches December release. I LOVE this We Totally Click stamp set. There are so many great images so I know I won't be putting this one down for awhile. ;)

I combined the camera and sentiment from the We Totally Click set with a few dies and stamps. The supply list is below. I love to layer so having all these dies makes it easy, fast and fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bella Blvd: Pinterest Inspired

Hi Everyone! I'm going to play catch up over the next couple of days here on my blog! I have lots to share before the year is over. :)

First up are a few cards I created for Bella Blvd. The picture they were inspired by along with details can be found over on the Bella Blvd blog HERE. These are also my last Christmas cards to share! Wow, where did the season go? :)

 I loved embellishing the letters on this card. I added Glossy Accents to the tree and heart sticker to make them shine. It's a trick I'm sure I'll use again. ;)

This card is a little more simple (or dare I say plain? lol) BUT that is what I was going for. A peaceful but happy card. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are continuing to enjoy this fun season! More tomorrow...

Bella Blvd: Giving a Gift Card

Happy Friday Everyone! I have a few cards up on the Bella Blvd blog today.  The designers are sharing fun ways to give gift cards! Both of my projects use tons of product from the Christmas Countdown collection. 

First up is a sneaky little elf hiding a gift card in a pocket on the card front.

The elf card pulls out to reveal the gift card. Cash or a note would also be a fun surprise in this card. 
When I give this to someone I will be sure to write a little note inside to make sure they don't miss the gift. ;) 

Next up is a simple box I cut from my Silhouette. I just sized the box to fit on my cutting mat (I have an SD) and then embellished it with a few more die cut items. It's the perfect size to fit a gift card!

Paper Smooches: Love Struck

Hi Everyone! I just LOVE Paper Smooches new stamp set Love Struck. It is such a fun, fresh take on Valentine's day and can be used all year long. 

I stamped and die cut the arrows. The dies are absolutely perfect. I don't miss fussy cutting at all. :) The hearts are also super fun. I love having different shaped hearts to work with. They will show up on lots of my projects. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
