This week the SCS Crafty Secrets Challenge is to include a mask somewhere on your project. I used an image from Girlfriends Images and Journal Notes and paired it up with K & CO.'s Cut'N Paste DP and Momenta's Story of US card stock. Just did some cutting and pasting and added a few embellishments. Went with colors that were a little different for me but figured it could be used for a birthday or friendship card if it didn't make it out in the mail in time for Halloween! Can you imagine such a thought?? Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is filled with sunshine!

Changing of the Seasons

Today my sweet daughter took Grandma and her little brother out for lunch so I could get some things done. Then later she took her brother and went to the grocery store so I had a chance to make a card. I had told myself I was going to refrain from playing until I completed some of the things that needed to be done on my "To Do List". Talk about motivation!

I am on a mission to create projects that are reproducible, not labor intensive, easy to mail, and usable! And I think this card fits the bill : ) It was made with the Changing of the Seasons digi image from ect. every thing creative . This image was a gift from participating in their WCMD challenge. I used paper from K & Co.'s Hannah's Pad and SU!'s Chocolate Chip. I printed my image on a natural card stock and aged my papers with Antique Linen ink. The temperatures are starting to drop here and we finally had to turn on our heat. It is starting to look and feel like fall and I'm loving it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are able to enjoy the Changing of the Seasons!

One Of Those Days...

Did you ever have one of those days where what you started out to do was not what you ended up doing? I'm sure you have and today was one of those days for me. Long story short between running low on colored ink ( problem when using a digi image) and breaking a spacer plate for my Big Shot this is what I came up with. This is a small note card approximately 3.5 x 5. Although I love vintage with all the fun embellishments I also enjoy a clean and simple design which I can use for a quick card or for multiple copies for note card sets. This beautiful image is a freebie that came from etc. every thing creative blog. I am new to digi images but they have great tips on their blog to make it easy to use. Here is a link to their new etsy store. If you like vintage I'm sure you will see something you like. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you don't have one of those days!

Crafty Secrets Creations

Just thought I would share with you some of the projects I have recently made. This is a quick and easy Christmas card made using an image from Crafty Secrets Seasonal Booklet, Graphic45 paper, and velvet paper from Embossing Arts. I love pairing up Crafty Secrets and Graphic45!

I saw this pair of gloves at JoAnns for $1 and couldn't help but think Crafty Secrets! I made this birthday card using Halloween Image and Journal Notes and adhered it to the glove. I did some cutting and pasting to make my borders. I stamped the sentiments using the Crafty Secrets Lucky Wishes stamp set. Then I used the glove insert for a gift card holder. Added the bow on the glove and used my Copics and scissors to color and relocate some embellies that came on the glove.

The roof of this little schoolhouse lifts up and there is a container of goodies inside. A little something for that special teacher! I used Crafty Secrets Sweet Chips Folding House, School Time Stickers, and Earthy Papers. Thanks for stopping by!
