Cards with Heart(s)

Wow, sorry for not posting in so long. The good news is that I have felt better and been able to do more and go a few places. The bad news is that I have neglected my blog. I have been crafting though. It will take me a while to get caught up with all the pictures. That just means you all get to see lots of posts in the next few weeks. :)

So let me start with some cards that I planned to be for Valentine's but would still be good for several other occasions such as love, Mother's Day, or weddings.

All the cards were made using the Authentique Classique Pretty paper collection from Scrapadabadoo.

 Heart Card 1

Here is a breakdown of how I made this card.
You can download the pdf page here.

 Heart Card 2


Here is a video showing how this card was put together.




 Heart Card 3

Same idea, but the different papers give you such different looks.


Here is a video.




Well I hope you have enjoyed these cards.
There are 12 heart cards in all.
You can download all the measurements/instructions and templates.


I will be posting more videos during the week.
(after all, I really have to get caught up. LOL)

Secret Garden Card

Hello My wonderful craft friends.
I made this card months ago but forgot to post it. Better late than never. LOL


I used Graphic 45 papers from The Secrete Garden that I have been hoarding for a while.
(I know it is silly to hang on to the pretty papers, but I also know I am not the only one who does it. LOL)
I made some handmade paper roses using Tattered Rose and touches of Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.
Since it was Secret Garden paper I though a key charm was the perfect edition.


Take care.

Happy New Year



Well I have been MIA for a while. With all my nerve damage it was getting hard to do even the simplest of things. The area we lived in had high humidity and the weather was constantly changing which made it extremely hard on me. We had been wanting to move from the area for years but  thought it would be years before we could. Then all of the sudden an amazing opportunity opened up and WE MOVED to Colorado!

God just lined everything up to create an awesome job for my hubby in a beautiful location. I have felt much better here. I have been able to get out and enjoy the scenery, watch a movie, and be pushed around the mall. I feel like I have a new lease on life! Of course, getting out in public for the first time in years made me susceptible to getting a cold. I can handle being sick opposed to having unrelenting nerve pain all the time though. LOL

The good news is that now that I am over my cold and sort of unpacked (lol), I will be able to craft more. Yay!

The card was for my mom's birthday. I used Heart Felt Creations paper. (then I covered all the pretty paper up ...haha) The flowers were all white and inked with distress inks to provide a pop of color.

TH Distress Inks used: Seedless Preserves, Aged Mahogany, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, and Forest Moss.


I hope you all have a great new year and look forward to many more crafty projects to share with you.
