Speedy Recovery Froggie

A very dear friend's husband is recovering from a heart attack, I hope this card will help cheer him up some.

The inspiration for this card came from a YouTube tutorial by Mary at TV Crafts (I think that is the correct site).  After going to YouTube for inspiration one of the blogs I follow had a good number of easle cards --think it was Paper Playtime.  Let me tell you, they were all totally awesome!!!!!

New Arrival Zoo Explosion Box

Getting ready for a "Craft Yard Sale" at a friend's house the end of September.  Thought I'd see if I could get several boxes made.  This is the first of I hope many.

Quick BD Cards

When in a hurry, I sometimes (lots of times) resort to using pre-made embellishments.  Used the C2 for the sentiment and Elegant Edges for the backing.  Paper from stash.

It's a Girl Easel Card

After watching a good number of YouTube tutorials on how to make an easle card, I gave it a try and this is my attempt at an easel card.
  • Cardstock from stash
  • "It's a" cut from "New Arrival" cart
  • Carriage stamp from SU - used embossing powder to make it pop a little
  • Border punch MS

  • Sentiment - from SU and embossed
  • "Girl" and button from Paper Studio "La Petites" 3-D stickers

This card was really easy to make and lots of fun to make.

My First Attempt at a Tri-Fold/Shutter Card

This was a fun card to make.  Went to YouTube and watched several tutorials on how to make them.  Can't believe all the tutorials on YouTube, you could make just about anything.  Had to go back several times to figure out how to fold the card.  I still don't think I got it right.  And, yes, this is in black and white.  I still have problems putting colors together so I figured black and white would be easier.  Dah, didn't know I have problems matching patterns too.  Oh well, it's a great way to learn. 

Now I'm going back to learn how to make an easel card. 

My Take on Coned Flower - Mother's Day Card

Saw this technique while on a blog hop Saturday.  Wrote all the info down as to where I saw it, but can I find it now, of course not.  Anyhows, this is my take on the card that I saw.  Actually, when I went back to the hop there was another take on this technique.  I had fun making these cards.  Only problem, I started way to late to be able to send them in the mail.  So, I posted to FB and e-mailed.

My New Craftroom in NM

Just about got the boxes all unpacked.  Still missing some things, but can't remember which boxes I put them in.

John painted my paper rack yellow to match my new yellow wall.

I'm really enjoying the room.  Now, I just need to get back my mojo and start crafting.
