    March Challenge Results!

    Hi All! I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing Easter. At my house, we ate all 3 meals together – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With 2 teenagers, that’s a huge gift. 🙂 Thank you to everyone who participated in the March Pastel Challenge! There were lots of entries this...

  2. Colorful Magnolias

    Colorful Magnolias

    Hi All! I’m watercoloring with my distress markers today. It has been awhile since I did this – I forgot how easy it is! I used the Magnolias for Her set by Altenew. I’ve had this set for a very long time, and I don’t think I’ve ever used it!...

    A Little Birdie

    Hi All, Ever since February’s Bird Challenge, I am on a bird roll! I’ve created more cards with birds in the last 6 weeks than in my entire card-making career. Today’s bird actually comes from a bunny set called Hoppiness. I used this set for the March Pastel Challenge on...

    Hi All! It’s time to get ready for another challenge! The challenge for April will be dry embossing.

There...

    Die-Cut Filler

    Hi All, Today’s card is mostly about die-cutting. I have this Spiral Flower from Simon Says Stamp, which I cut multiple times. I used these flowers to fill an open area backed with dark cardstock. It’s very quick to make – I think the whole card took me 15 minutes....

  6. CAS Bacon and Eggs

    CAS Bacon and Eggs

    Hi All! Sometimes I find it hard to create a quick card – I tend to labor the design too much. This design is so easy and very repeatable. Neutral pattern on top, objects over it, and sentiment directly beneath. My objects are the bacon and eggs from the Breakfast...

  7. Neenah Cardstock: Smooth vs. Super-Smooth

    Neenah Cardstock:  Smooth vs. Super-Smooth

    Hi All! For my Copic coloring, I use Neenah 80lb cardstock. There are two different versions of Neenah cardstock – smooth and super-smooth. I have historically purchased from Ellen Hutson (#04701), and their cardstock is smooth. However, to save money, many people are buying from places like Amazon and JoAnn’s...

    Submarine Manatee

    Hi All! I using the Oh, Manatee set again. If you missed my first card, you can see it here. These guys are so cute! I repurposed Ellen Hutson’s Mirror, Mirror die as a submarine window. The front of the card opens to reveal the full manatee and the sentiment:...

  9. Throwback Thursday!

    Throwback Thursday!

    Hi All! The purpose of Throwback Thursday is to “repurpose” some of the older content, making it new again. With the hundreds of videos, you probably have forgotten or maybe missed some of the old stuff. So, once a month I’m here with a fun reminder. I made this card...
