3Birds and Xyron on 24-Hour Craft Day on HSN July 23rd.


HSN BIG CRAFT DAY is coming up on the 23rd of this month and you're going to want to turn in to see some amazing creations from 3Birds and Xyron.  Plus I have a feeling there will be some deals to be had that day.  So it's a win, win. 

For this card I used the following goodies and I will say all of 3Birds collections made this so easy to put together.

Hampton Art #1 Fan


This is a card I made for Hampton Arts and I just really love the way it turned out.  All the colors are just great together, but it's a masculine card that I like...and I'm not easy to please on boy cards.  I used the Good Ole' Sport collection from Graphic 45 and the coordinating stamp sets from Hampton Arts.

Heartfelt Creations : I Thank God

 
 
I love, love, love the Heartfelt Creations sentiment I used on this card....Sometimes we go, go, go and forgot to thank God and I must say I've been blessed with a few amazing friends and I'm so thankful to God for them. .  I think it's always nice to let friends and loved ones know how thankful I am for them and this card helps me do just that. 
 
 
As always, be sure to hop over to Heartfelt Creations Blog and see all the beautiful projects the rest of the design team created this week.  Remember you can always find complete supply list and directions for each of the projects so it's a great way to get those creative juices flowing.  I'll see you Friday. 
 
Happy Crafting!!!

Hello everyone...today kicks off the amazing week of Simple Stories, May Arts Ribbon and Xyron all joining together for one fantastic blog hop.  Be sure to hop to all the designers blogs and see some great projects through out the week.

Home Run with Graphic 45

 
Today you'll find one of my easel cards featured over on Graphic 45 Blog.  I'll be the first to tell you I'm not a huge sports girl, but my GOSH...I love this collection.  It's probably the vintage retro feel that it has as most G45's collections do...but it's just stinkin cute. 
 
I also created a tutorial on how to make the faux leather I used on this card.  Check it out on Snapguide.  Not familiar with Snapguide?  It's the latest up and coming hot internet site.  You can find all kinds of tutorials on how to do...well about anything you can think of. 
Here's a link to my tutorial:
 
 
 
Now get ready for a bunch of pictures...wanted to be sure you got the whole feel of the card.  Oh and if you couldn't tell the baseball on the front slides across, so it looks like it's heading out of the park for a HOME RUN!!!!
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'll see you all soon...happy crafting until then.

Very Blessed


I'm so blessed to have my family and loving friends.  I made this for a dear friend of mine who lost his father.  I can't imagine, as I'm so blessed to have both my parents.  He such a sweet heart and I know a card wasn't a drop in the bucket for how he must have been feeling, but I hope it softened it just a bit. 

This card was created using Graphic 45's Botanical Tea Collection and such stamps from Heartfelt Creations.  Of course all the flowers are handmade. 




See you tomorrow with the premiere of Heartfelts Creations July Release...and you are going to love it.

Xyron and Lawn Fawn Blog Hop

 
This week we are kicking off a great HOP with Xyron Glues and Lawn Fawn Stamps.   All of their stamps are just adorable and you'll be able to see all kinds of ideas from the two design teams.  So be sure to hop all week long.
 
My card is one I created using the " You've Got Mail" stamp set and some Graphic 45 "By the Sea" paper.  I thought the colors were perfect since we are right here at Fourth of July. 
 
 
 
 



I stamped and fussy cut out the images so make it be super 3-D.  The little letter looks likes it's dropping in the box as we speak. 

 
Want to know all the goodies used from Xyron and Lawn Fawn to make this adorable card...check out the list below.
