Hello all! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am famous for making things work out from "mistakes"! Take this cute card. It was a Krazy Kreations card kit I received while I was at the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly. By the way, you must go there if you've never been! It was amazing!
Anyhoo, the kit comes with a card to attach the panel to. I got the panel all ready to attach to the enclosed card...and attached the thing upside down! I almost panicked until I realize that it was an easy fix! I just cut off the card front, trimmed the card close to the panel, inked the edges with black ink and attached it to the purple card I had in my stash! I had extra dots from the outline sheet that came with the kit. And you see the neat glitter reflection from the center flower and leaves? Krazy Kreations have glitter sheets that you can color on with alcohol markers! The kit came with a portion of the flower outline sheet and a piece of the glitter sheet. It was so easy and I love the affects!
So, I hope you enjoyed my "master piece" from my "mistake"! And we all know that there is no such thing as a mistake in papercrafting!
Have a Happy 4th and be blessed!

Wanted to share a few cards I made with a card kit that I've had for almost 10 yrs! That's pretty bad. How many remember the direct sales company, MemoryWorks? I loved that company because it sold scrapbook supplies from all the major companies. The papers, embellishments and ephemera would all be there together so it was super easy to coordinate everything! Not to mention, as a consultant, you got products for 20% off...including the great sales!! Good times....anyway....
My first card was made with the card base, flowers, and sticker from the old kit. The bling is from CTMH. The new purchases are the patterned paper from DCWV Watercolorist and the glitter tape is from Design Your Life.
I love this tag! Would you believe the only thing new is the CTMH Bitty Sparkles! Everything else was in the kit...except the dragonfly stickers which are from another very old stash. 😀 Oh, and the pen used to make the dragonfly trail and the chalk used to color the bird. Ok, I think I'm done with the new stuff now!
My last card was super easy. The card base and buttons are from the kit. The baker's twine is from an old CTMH stash. The new item is the sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey.
So there you have it. Something old and something new. And isn't it great how they work together so nicely!
Til next time...keep scrappn' (and crafting!) and stay blessed!

Happy Memorial Day! Our county schools had their graduations over the weekend. This is a card I made for one of my friend's daughter! The school colors are red, white and blue. I used Paperwishes paper, CTMH glitter tape, CTMH white enamel gems and Copic markers to color. I was tickled to find this Penny Black Grad! stamp set! It was perfect for this card!

Hi all! It's been a while since I've been online. My sewing "business" has taken wings and has left little time for crafting. However, with Mother's Day right around the corner, I wanted to see if I could come up with a card that would make my Stepmom proud!
I am really getting into Heartfelt Creations paper packs! The illustrations are lovely and you can do as little or as much as you want to the card and it will come out beautiful every time! The paper pack I used is Classic Rose and the stamp set is Blushing Rose. I colored with colored pencils, outlining the petal with a pink gel pen. I used Paperwishes die-cut frames and Dazzles.
I've got time to try and make another one but really like the way this turned out. Have a blessed day!

I was looking through my stash to find the right elements to put together for my stepmom's birthday card. She loves to wear hats to church on Sundays and thankfully, I remembered a set of hat lady Dazzles I got...years ago, of course! The next thing was looking for the right paper and I had totally forgotten about the beautiful floral pattern paper I got ages ago from www.paperwishes.com! I think this has to be one of the reasons I love papercrafting so much. The product really never gets to old to use!lol

Hi everyone! Well, I finally got my layout finished for the SCT365 February Challenge. I've had this particular paper pack from Karelyn Siegler for at least 3 years. I didn't have time to look for multiple pictures so I was thrilled to find this picture of me and my girls in a stack of photos. And I wanted to tweak the sketch (which is a double page layout) to just a single page and with one photo instead of three...or was it four? At any rate, I love the outcome! Now, it I get a little bit more me time this weekend, I may get a card done as well! Wish me luck!
