S1802 Sunny Thoughts/Color and Cutting Diagram Challenge

Good Afternoon!

I hope this post finds you having a crafty afternoon.  It's warm but very rainy here in Eastern NC.  You'd think it was the Pacific Northwest but alas, it's just February in the Carolinas.

Today I wanted to share with you a super quick card I made in less than a half hour.  It's a simple Thank You card using the sentiment of the same from February's S1802 Sunny Thoughts Stamp of the Month. 

The following supplies were used to create this card:

  • Bulk card and envelopes kit
  • Toffee cardstock
  • Flaxen cardstock
  • Juniper cardstock
  • White Daisy cardstock
  • charcoal ink
  • Chelsea Gardens Gems and embellishments
  • Gold glitter heart 

To begin, you need a White Daisy 5 1/2x 4 1/4 card base.   Cut piece A - Your Toffee cardstock to 5 1/2 x 2 1/4.  Attach piece A to your White Daisy base.   Next, you will need to cut piece B which is your Flaxen cardstock to 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.   Attach piece B to piece A.  

Your Juniper cardstock is piece C.  Cut piece C to 3x3 inches.   Add 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 White Daisy cardstock stamped with Thank You stamp from February Stamp of the Month.  Ink color is Charcoal.

Embellish with Chelsea Gardens Gems and embellishments.  Add gold glitter heart with 3 D foam tape for dimension.   Voila! You have a very simple and quick thank you card.  Just write a personal message on the inside and send off to the intended recipient.

Happy Crafting,

Ruby/Saffron/Mink Challenge

Hi All!

Over on our Stampin' Buds Team Facebook group which is lead by my up line, Shannon Baker; we have begun having a weekly color Close to my Heart color challenge. They run from Sunday to Sunday.  This layout showcases the colors Ruby, Saffron, and Mink from the challenge for the week February 4th through February 11th. 

All products are from Close to my Heart and embellishment jewels and journaling cards come from the Chelsea Gardens kit which is one of two kits that I am highlighting in the month of February. 

All products are available on my OBA.  Just click the Shop With me button in the right side bar!  And yes, that's me as an infant and toddler.   I'm still looking for pictures for page two.  They are somewhere around here :)

Happy Scrapping!

Completed layout Make Waves

I'm so excited, it's not often that I actually take the time to complete a layout to include photos and journaling, but this evening. I did just that.  The photos in this layout highlight several trips to the ocean and aquarium between the years of 2010-2013.   The little boy in the layout is my nephew Caleb who will be seven years old in March.   Yes, even a scrapbook consultant gets rather behind in her paper crafting.   It feels great to have these photos scrapped now. 

Until next time,
