Have you seen the Sizzix Stand Up Card dies that were recently released? I LOVE them! Similar to Flip-Its and Pop Up dies, these Movers & Shapers dies will allow more motion and dimension to your cardmaking. They are so fun! I just HAD to use this one to make my sweet hubby a card for his Birthday this month. I can’t wait to see what he thinks of it!
For my project I used 658845- Movers & Shapers XL Card Square Stand-Ups showcasing the vibrant style of Ellison design artist Stephanie Barnard. You receive one die to make a stand-up

We needed a get well soon card and we have received a lot of really cute winter stuff lately, so we thought we would combine the two and make a wintery get well soon card this week. It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas, or at least winter. I like to get through Thanksgiving before I get into Christmas, but Heather just got our house all set up for the Christmas tree so guess what we will be doing this weekend?
This card was a lot of fun, we got to use our new Recovery Wishes stamp set from

Today I want to share a really fun project – quick and easy Halloween treat holders. They are sure to be a hit with your favorite trick-or treaters.
I began by selecting some of my favorite circle and oval dies, as well as a some solid and patterned papers. The dies I selected were Spellbinders petite scalloped circles, scalloped circles, picot-edged circles and pumpkin circles. I also selected a set of My Favorite Things oval dies to make the taller pumpkins.
My first two pumpkins were made using Dried Marigold from the Tim Holtz Distress Core’dinations paper stack. I cut two shapes each from

No, I am not crazy, and yes, you can use 12 x 12″ paper for fall porch decor! With a little help from Mod Podge, you can seal your paper project to withstand the elements to enable you to decorate your outdoor area as cute as your inside areas.
For this project, I purchased my ladder and monthly wood kit from Crafty Wood Cutouts HERE which is a local woodcraft store. I actually consider this cheating, because I have been a wood cutter for many years, but I just don’t have the time to get out to my shop very often

Today I want to show you some frighteningly simple Halloween cards featuring the Authentique “Thrilling” Collection. I love the variety of papers and stickers available in Authentique’s Thrilling Collection – enough to satisfy all of my Halloween card needs and then some. I especially love the paper called “Mystic”, and that is what I used to make some super simple Halloween cards.
To create these cards, I first cut apart the various elements on the “Mystic” page. In some cases I cut the outside borders off, and instead used a coordinating solid paper as a border or

I don’t know how many of you have used the excuse that a girl ALWAYS needs a stylish purse, but it is true! Styles change and in order to keep up, we just have to keep up with the change. Well, here is a purse that will keep your goodies in style as fast as you can cut the paper! All you need is one sheet of 12 x 12″ paper and some adhesive.
Sizzix Bigz Pro Die Bag Purse w/ Flower-656833 is totally fab! It is big enough to hold any chocolate lovers fill of goodies, cookies or even baby

We have a blank wall in need of filling so this week Heather and I created this wall hanging decoration. We really started with this songbird and cage die cut from Quickutz that we cut out onto foil. We have used this foil from Spellbinders before but let me tell you it is a lot of fun and no more difficult to use than regular paper. Combined with the paper and floral stamps this decoration will fill any empty wall space with elegance.

Here is a fun little gift idea for someone in your life using Bo Bunny paper. Heather went to a girls camp a few weeks back, and she wanted to make a little gift for the “Young Women’s” president of the girls in our church, to say thank you for all the work that she had put into planning such a great event. Don’t worry, this idea can be used for so much more than a girls camp gift, just put whatever saying you would like and whatever die cuts you want and there you go! You have made this

We have had this album from Want2Scrap for a few months and when our friends had their baby, Heather grabbed it and made them this cute baby album. We have done a few of these because they are so fun because a lot of the hard work is done for you and all you have to do is the fun part, decorating it. We have gotten a few baby things the last few months also that was a lot of fun to try out. Also we only used two different paper stacks from Heartfelt Creations and Authentique to make it

Hope you all had a great 4th of July yesterday and now is the time to get all of those pictures developed and scrapbooked with Authentiques Pride Collection. This paper stack is pretty amazing because it comes with so much, not only does it have really cute paper designs but it comes with sheets of stickers that make designing not only easy but really fun. I decided to scrapbook some pictures from a few years ago because when I was doing this page we hadn’t had the 4th yet. It was fun to look back to this year because Heather

No, I didn’t misspell the title of my blog. I made my JustRite Freindship Card with JustRite Stampers new Vintage Labels Four die and Enjoy the Day Vintage Labels Four stamp set, but I actually do think it turned out just right (Wink, wink). The best part about making this card is sending it to the special friend that I made this for!
I almost gave it the title Imperial Gold Friendship Card because I used Spellbinders Imperial Gold die- Gold Corners One and the colors I chose are all gold. Trust me, I was not planning anything like either of

Get ready for Father’s Day with this Father’s Day Treat box! You can make it in about 15 minutes and give it to your dear old dad, your husband, or your son if you wish. It’s suiting for everyone and I’m sure they’re appreciate the little goodies inside! I am terribly in love with the QuicKutz Treat Box because you can use it for so many occasions and little surprises.

I love this new Sizzix 658451 Bigz ScoreBoards XL Birdhouse 3-D die that creates a birdhouse not for the birds, but for us! It is darling and so much fun to make! You can use this for decoration, or for treats! I am thinking about putting acetate over the opening, then leave one side of the roof accessible so it can lift up for yummy little treats! A small magnet would enable me to keep it closed, but easily lift up when needed. To view this and other ScoreBoard dies, click HERE.

I teach an AP Art class and if you know anything about AP classes you always have about 2 weeks left after they take their tests so in AP Art we do a little bookmaking and each student makes their own sketchbook that they can fill up through out the summer. Here are a few examples of books that I made with them where I used Bo Bunny and Authentique paper as the cover. This paper is perfect for the cover because it is sturdy and durable (Plus it looks really nice). After I got them done here at the

We got some foil on our last order and they made such fun and easy Mothers Day cards. If you have forgotten about Mothers Day, first off shame on you, but here is an idea for some last minute ideas for a card. We used Spellbinders #2 foil packs which have 5 different color choices that really work with the Mothers Day feel but you can get them in all sorts of colors and even natural metal colors so check them out. Just start with a background pattern or color and fold your card. Next use some kind of texture

Mothers Day is coming up pretty quick so what better gift could you give her than an album full of pictures of her children? Unfortunately I can’t give this one to Heather because she made half of it but take a few minutes and make one for the mother you have in your life. We had these pictures that grandma took as they played cowboy (and cowgirl) at their house. These Albums from Want2Scrap are really fun to put together and they have so many different styles to choose from. Sometimes it is nice to get a break from doing

Who doesn’t want a Authentique Thank You card? Not only do I love using Authentique paper but I love using Spellbinders dies as well. I could’nt resist using Spellbinders Les Papillions Die for this Thank you card and Heartfelt Creations has a beautiful stamp collection so of course I couldn’t resist that either. I always use card stock for the base for my cards. I then used Authentiques 6×6 paper called Renew on the top. This paper is double sided so it all blends together really well. I used Hero Hues Chalk Ink to ink around all my corners of
