Lawn Fawn Snow Day Fun

Happy Wednesday!

I am popping in today to share a really quick layout I did yesterday.  This is the first layout that I have done for myself in close to a year.  Can  you believe that?  I am so behind in my scrapping that I was a bit overwhelmed and then I just went into my computer and picked a month and picked some of my favorite photos and got busy.  I found these really cute photos of my hubby and oldest son sledding on a hill in our neighborhood.  The two of them had such a great time and I was so happy I got to capture it.  The photos aren't the greattest but I don't care because it is the memory to me not the quality of the photo.

I wanted a really easy design and went with a basic grid design that I use very often.  I have had this Lawn Fawn paper collection for awhile and have been wanting to use it so I broke it out!  I went with a very basic clean look for this one.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful and crafty day.

Lawn Fawn Birthday Card

Happy Monday!

I had some time on my hands yesterday and I needed to make a birthday card for a friend of mine.  She loves my handmade cards to I decided to get busy.  I really didn't have a lot of mojo so this is when I look for some fun Challenges to get me going.  I found 2!!!!  They were a perfect match- Lawnscaping has a great challenge to make a birthday card (just what I needed) and Retro Sketches had an awesome sketch!  I was set.

Lawnscaping has their 100th challenge.  I wish I could say that I have done all 100 challenges but I can say that I have done many and I love them.

To see the challenge please go HERE.

Here is my card.  Everthing with my card is Lawn Fawn.  I broke out my Lawn Fawn pattern paper and several stamps and dies.  I had a lot of fun!!
To make this card I used the new sketch from RetroSketches #154.  Here is the sketch:

SOG CAS Valentine's Day Card

Happy Monday,
This week on the SOG blog they are featuring a week of inspirtation for Valentine's Day.  I wanted to get in on the fun so I made this CAS card using the Frenchie Kody stamps.  I have had this card done for about a week but we have not had any sunny weather to capture a photo.  So I had to make due with a photo.  The card is pure white but the lighting was terrible.  Sorry!
I wanted a really clean look to this one and so I used 2 stamps and added some pearls.  Quick Easy and Fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will have some Core'dinations work for you later in the month!  I am working on some St. Patrick's day cards and layouts!  Can't wait to share.  See you soon!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Feb. 6th Core'dinations Valentine's Day Card


I am popping in today to show off this fun card I made for Core'dinations. I needed to make a couple of Valentine's Day cards and I came up with this Clean and Simple look.  I really love the embossing on this.  The Glitter cardstock adds just the perfect amount of bling.  For my sentiment I used the new Vellum Quotes.
I made a video on how this card came about.
Thanks so much for stopping in.

Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Feb 4th Core'dinations Valentine's Day Sucker Holder

Happy Wednesday!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to make a cute little sucker holder for some treats for my kids and their friends.  I found this awesome holder in the Silhouette store so I decided to break out my Core'dinations cardstock and get busy.

First, I put everything on my cutting mat and cut my pieces.
For this project I used my Core Essentials and my Core Gemstone collection.
After cutting the pieces out I adhered the sides using my liquid glue.
I inserted my sucker into the holder.
I added some bling and a name to the front heart.
and attached it using some foam squares.  This will be on their placemat in the morning along with a homemade card from me!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back again soon.
Have a wonderful and crafty day.
