Good Morning!

I was asked to make a wedding card for one of Vicki’s co-workers and I have been struggling with my mojo all week to come up with something.  It’s just like me that at the very last minute I am able to throw something together.  I am so random and work best when I have run out of time…..

Wedding 001The corner die is by Marianne Design Creatables and I cut the flower using my Cameo.  The butterfly is a new Martha Stewart punch that I snagged from The Cutting Garden, the last thing I needed was another butterfly punch but of course, I couldn’t resist.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!


Back among the living….

6 May

Good Monday Morning to you all…

I have been laying low this weekend trying to get rid of this ridiculous flu, it has been dragging on for what seems like forever!  I need to get on the other side of this and back to work this morning!  I haven’t been very crafty this week while I have been sick but I have loads of projects stored up to share with you.

Post1This was made using the Martha Stewart deep edge Scroll Heart punch.  This punch belongs to my friend Carol and it is absolutely my favorite edge punch… I use it often and I think I am going to have to buy her a new one because a tear comes to my eye every time I think she may want to take it back! LOL!!!  I love the layout of this card, it would make such a lovely wedding or anniversary card don’t you think?

Well I am off to get ready to start my day.  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Wedding Card…

2 May

Good Morning!  Ugh!  I am up and trying to decide if I am able to get myself in gear enough to get ready for work.  This nasty flu is really hanging on unfortunately.  I haven’t been out of the house since Monday, mainly just laying on the couch dozing.  I have absolutely no appetite, which could be the only good thing about having the flu, maybe I will lose a few pounds!  One can only hope. I have to admit to you that the cards that I have been posting this week were all made last weekend, there isn’t a crafty bone in my body this week!  I have been walking into my craft room, sitting down and then getting up and walking back out.  I am just not feeling well enough to start making anything.  Okay, enough of my belly aching!  I will live where loads wouldn’t!  Here’s my card that I would like to share with you today….

Post14Very simple but really quite elegant.  I used the Martha Stewart Double Arches border punch for the black band under the lace.  Ms. Lauren, my lovely friend from Australia sent me the lace a while back, it is so beautiful!  Thanks Lauren!!  Pop on over to her blog and say hello… she has some beautiful cards posted to share with you 🙂  I can’t remember where I got the bride and groom stamp, I have had it quite a while, but really any image would work well with this layout.

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!



One in a Lifetime…

9 Jul

This is my first post on my first official day of vacation!  I am off work for a week and the weather is truly beautiful here in Halifax!  I made a pretty card this morning to share with you….

I’ve managed to tidy and organize my craft room this past weekend and I am loving sitting this morning and just randomly creating 🙂  I felt this card needed a custom envelope… this paper is so pretty!  I scored it at The Cutting Garden at the fantastic yard sale we had!  Thanks Mel!  This was your paper pad and I still can’t believe you parted with it!   It will be well loved in its new home 😉

I picked up the inside sentiment stamp at The Cutting Garden as well…. I absolutely love this one… in my opinion its one of the nicest sentiments I have seen so far…

You will be hearing a lot from me this week I suspect… I plan to spend as much time as I can getting inky and crafting!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Envelope Tutorial…..

2 Jul

Good Afternoon crafty friends… I have received several messages asking me to do a tutorial for the punched edge envelopes so here it is!

This envelope measures 5″ x 6″

These instructions are for the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.

Start with an 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock.  With your triangle corner tool in place score at 3 5/8″ and then turn your page 90 degreesThen score at 3″ and again turn your page 90 degrees…

Score at 3 5/8″ again and turn 90 degrees…

Then score again at 3″….

Now cut out the little pieces where your score lines go over each other  (I know I am not explaining this well) here’s a picture to show you….

Now round off the bottom widest flap using your corner rounder…

Now use some strong adhesive Sookwang tape works the best I find.  Oh and PLEASE note where I put the tape…. Like a dunce I taped the actual flap twice and ended up gluing my envelop shut TWICE!  *roll eyes*  here’s a pic…

Still with me?  LOL!!!

Now using a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set start with the corner and punch the envelope flap… once you have punched the corner line up your punches and punch down both sides of the flap….

Almost done!!!  Now cut a 4″ x 4″ piece of matching design paper to decorate your envelope and adhere it to the inside flap of your envelope…

And there you have it!!!…..

How slick is that huh? 😉  Here’s a peek at the card and envelope together…

Well, I hope you have found this useful and if you make one, let me know how you made out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy I Do Day and a Free Sentiment Digi….

2 Jul

Well the weekend is coming to an end and I am busy getting prepared to go back to work tomorrow but in between chores I am still creating! 🙂  I want to squeeze every bit of enjoyment out of this long weekend as I can!  I asked Tony to make a digi sentiment stamp for me today for wedding cards and as usual, he out did himself!  Check this out!…

Can you see the shaded little wedding bells in the background?  What a sweet little touch this adds!  Following my rule of using up as much of a sheet of design paper that I cut into, I made two cards and have enough left over to make some matching envelopes and that will be my next project.  I have been asked to do a tutorial on the custom envelopes so I will try to get it done today so pop back and check it out if you are interested.

This is one piece of double sided design paper and I just used the reverse side to do the second card.  I love these dies that I picked up at The Cutting Garden.

Cheery Lynn – B117 Fanciful Flourish

Spellbinders – Floral Ovals

The sentiment for the inside of the card, also purchased at The Cutting Garden is by Hampton Art.  I asked Tony to make the digi to go along with my new wooden Hampton Art Stamp….

Now it’s been a long time since I have shared one of Tony’s digi’s and I think this one is pretty special so I thought it would be fun to share it with you!!!  Just right click on it and save it to your computer.  I’d appreciate a link back to my blog if you decide to use it!!


 Thanks for stopping by!!!!


Once in a Lifetime….

1 Jul

Whoa!  It’s a hot one today!  I am sitting on the deck (in the shade) as I post this… the AC is on in the house but It is such a spectacular day I just feel I HAVE to spend some of my day outside!  It has to be over 30 degrees out here, its so quiet an peaceful, this is such a lovely and relaxing day.  I would love to get a bit of sun because I am so white, but I feel the sun is so intense, I will burn to a crisp if I attempt it!

Here’s another card I made this weekend…. I love this new sentiment stamp I picked up from The Cutting Garden.  I will make a lovely wedding card don’t you think and after all it’s the season for weddings so I imagine I will be putting it to good use!

I hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks again for stopping by!
