Many Thanks

Time flies when you're having fun and it's been awesome creating for the 2012-2013 design team at Pebbles! It's also been fabulous working with our coordinator, Lynn Ghahary, who's stepping down. I'd like to thank Lynn for her support and a great year so I made her this card with the Walnut Grove collection. 

Lynn will be missed! Fortunately, I know she'll be around, sharing this hobby we love on Facebook, Two Peas in a Bucket, Scrapbook and Cards, etc. I think our paths will cross often and who knows, we just might wind up working on another team together? I'd like that. Thanks for everything, Lynn! :)

Cards with Windows

It's another Cards on Thursday today on the Bella Blvd. blog! This week we've been challenged to create window cards and here are my designs. 

I used the Silhouette to make this card with lots of little butterfly windows. I also used a few of my favorite Bella Blvd. accents, Flags, Button Market and a Crochet Heart.

This window card was created with a combination of Silhouette and a Spellbinder's Nestability die. Along with the patriotic All American line. Are you a fan of window cards? I think they're lots of fun to create...I want to do more of them! 

In a couple hours Dan and I are off to Christopher's school for an awards ceremony. Christopher is in his last week of sixth grade and has done an awesome job. He's been taking accelerated math and is getting an award in that class. We're so proud of him! :)

Have a fabulous day! Thanks for visiting!

Last weekend I made a pit stop at Archivers and purchased some Lucky Charm papers from the latest Dear Lizzy collection.  I combined these whimsical and colorful papers with a new arrow die set from My Favorite Things resulting in this scrapbook page of our kitty Oreo. 

This guy is a handful! He's so active and playful! He's currently in my office trying to get me to play fetch with one of his favorite mice! If I don't throw that mouse soon, he'll start to chew on my scrapbook supplies! Not good! A few of my latest paper craft projects have fallen victim to Oreo! I've always had lazy mellow cats in the past so this is a new beast for me! Do any of you have a rambunctious cat?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Heart Sing

Hi! I created a card this morning. I love the spontaneity of a non-planned post/craft share...the freedom to just sit down and create with no assignment in mind. I think I do some of my best work that way. 

I created this card with some American Crafts Dear Lizzy papers. I love the color palette and this phrase. I threw in a few wood hearts from Freckled Fawn and used some thin metal heart dies from My Favorite Things. What do you think? Like? 

I hope you have a great day and can find some time to do a little playing too! :)

Page Maps

Hi! How many of you are Page Maps fans? Page Maps is an awesome site for scrapbook sketches and I love that they have card sketches too! Today's crafty share was created with one of Becky's sketches and Doodlebug Design's Stars and Stripes collection. 

This bicycle paper is the cutest, don't you think? I just purchased a little bicycle die from My Favorite things and I can't wait to create something with the two...soon. 

Thanks for your visit! Hope you have a great start to the week! :)

Good Times!

T.G.I.F! The weekend and good times are ahead! And in less than two weeks July 4th will be here too! BBQs, Picnics and vacations are happening! I'm looking forward to our annual family beach trip and a few days in the mountains alone with Dan....soon! :) 

How about a little crafty share? I have colorful July 4th card created with Doodlebug Design's Stars and Stripes collection. Yesterday I made some TP tube rockets with this line too and look forward to sharing that with you soon....a fun craft to do with the kiddos while they're off for summer break.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday! :)

Shaped Cards

It's Cards on Thursday on the Bella Blvd. blog today and the design team was challenged to create shaped cards. First up I have this round/star Forth of July card created with the All American collection.

Are you seeing stars and stripes yet? Beautiful collection isn't it?

My second greeting was created with Bella Blvd's sweet Baby Boy line and a card cut from Silhouette...a match made in heaven with those adorable truck icons!

Well, we're working our way into another weekend! :) Any special plans? We haven't nailed down any yet.

Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely day!

The official start of summer is just days away and Pebbles' Lakeside collection has been my current go-to line for making cards and scrapbook pages. 

Recently, on a trip to the Raleigh flea market I found a large cast iron pot, perfect for campfires and roasting marshmallows in the back yard. We snapped just a couple photos when we tried it out, none that were spectacular, but I love the one I used for this page because of the close-up of the marshmallow with Christopher and the iron pot in the background. It's so difficult to get Christopher in a photo since he detests having his picture taken!

Posting this page makes me want to have another camp fire this weekend! :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Flower Box

Hello! I'm popping in quickly before I run to the dentist. Not my favorite activity, but a cleaning will feel good and I have the best dentist. She also loves paper crafts! :) 

I created this flowery and colorful card with Doodlebug Design's Flower Box collection. The butterflies are Mini Doodle Pops, but the dimensional flower I created by layering three flower stickers with foam mounting tape and then topped them off with a Mini Pearl. I hope you like. :)

Have a fantastic day!
