World Card Making Day

 Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by my blog post today.  It's World Card Making day and it was so much fun to make these 2 cards! 

So today I'm here as a Creative Ambassador for PIECE CRAFT LOVE and working on a couple of cards for World Card Making Day .  I'm going to tell you upfront that my card making skills are not that spectacular but I do love making them!  I am in awe of the card makers that I do follow and watching their ink blending techniques just blow my mind.  These are not that😬

However, I did put 2 cards together, one being a coffee card because who doesn't like coffee?  The other is a sweet fall friendship card (funny enough, the sentiment came from the  coffee stamp set I used for the first card...I mean another great reason to love coffee, am I right)?

We will start with the coffee card (I don't think I can say this enough) because WHO DOESN'T LOVE COFFEE, or at least the smell of it!  I used a brown, heavy weight card stock, cut to an A2 size for one layer of the top of the card and stressed the edges.  I then adhered it to an A2 blank card (because that's how I roll, yes, I bought the pre-pack of A-2 cards that are already scored and everything😬)

I then cut to size the paper from ECHO PARK, from their COFFEE collection, it was actually the B side of the 3x4 journaling cards (item # C0164002).  I loved the pink hues in it and ALL THE COFFEE CUPS!  I then distressed the edges and adhered it to the brown card stock, leaving just a peak of the brown card stock showing.

I grabbed another ECHO PARK paper called I LIKE BIG CUPS (now that that song is stuck in your head and the main reason I bought this sheet of paper) I swear I heard the other version of that song for hours after making this card!  Anyway, I fussy cut the one that says, well, I LIKE BIG CUPS AND I CAN NOT LIE! and backed it to the same brown card stock and inked the edges with some Tim Holtz Distressed Inks in Walnut Stain. I popped it up on foam tape and adhered it to the card.  


I then went into my new FAVORITE Coffee, Best Friends, sentiments from AlteNew called Friends Forever.  It has this huge to go cup stamp with a sleeve that I absolutely love and think it's the PERFECT size!  I stamped that using my Tim Holtz stamping platform onto a piece of GORGEOUS 6x6 paper from PRIMA MARKETING from their PUMPKIN AND SPICE collection with my Stayz On Black ink.  I then took the double hearts from the same stamp set and stamped the sleeve part of the cup.  I fussy cut it and then tucked it under the I LIKE BIG CUPS AND I CAN NOT LIE! cut apart.

I dug deep into my stash and found not one but 2 COFFEE washi-tape rolls that were perfect.  I added them to a piece of the brown card stock paper, adhered them down and then used some foam tape to pop it up off the card.  I left just enough room for the edges of the card to peak out along with some of the bottom of the card.  

Here is how it turned out





Here are the link to some of the items I used from Piececraftlove.com The washi-tape was from a purchase from Michael's a while ago.
ADHISIVE -    ART GLITTER GLUE

Now, on to my 2nd card!  For this one I used my new FAVORITE paper and embellishment collection ever!  It's the PRIMA MARKETING, PUMPKIN & SPICE Collection.  Oh you guys this collection is gorgeous.  It's a non-traditional fall color collection that I am IN LOVE WITH! I've used it on layouts and cards and it is so versatile!



I cut the A2 size card-face from a paper out of their 6x6 paper pad.  Each paper has 4 of each of the patterns which is awesome!  It is super heavy paper and so easy to work with. 

I pulled out my Tim Holtz stamp platform and I took out the SENTIMENT from the ALTENEW Friends Forever stamp set.  I actually bought the set because of this sentiment!  I used my Stayz On Black Ink and stamped the sentiment onto the pattern paper.

This peachy, washed out paper that I chose was just so pretty that I had to use it.  It matched so well with the coordinating ephemera paper...which I used to make this cute little "sign".  I backed it with the same paper I used for the coffee cup above (we waist no paper here, lol).  I popped it up on foam tape to give it some dimension. 

I then found another piece of ephemera from the collection that was a sign that I didn't think I would use but loved the part that looks like it's hanging the picture so I tucked it underneath the KEEP CALM AND ENJOY FALL piece and then used some of that black and which checkered pattern paper from the same pad to cut 2 small flag-banners and tucked them under that cute saying.  I then grabbed the puffy stickers from this collection and just fell in love with the black and white checkered heart that matched the flag-banners under the "hanging picture" so I sued it along with the SO THANKFUL puffy sticker that I placed below the stamped sentiment!

Here is how it turned out


Here is all the fun goodness that I used from the Prima Marketing Collection.

Well guys, that's it.  These are my cards I made for World Card Making Day!  They aren't the fancy, color/shading/popping out cards that amaze me, but I think they are super cute!

Tag You're It Challenge Day 26 - can you say weaving?

  Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by and following along on this Tag You're It hop sponsored by....

 Piece Craft Love!  

To learn more about this hop, go here.

I'm here on Day 26 and guess what?  I loved using my Pinkfresh Studio collections to make this Easter layout using some weaving techniques.


So this was definitely a PinkFresh Studio themed layout with a little bit of stash bashing.
I grabbed some of the PinkFresh Studio papers from the OFFICE HOURS COLLECTION, called HARDWORK, the MY FAVORITE STORY, called BEAUTY OF SIMPLICITY and BEST CHAPTER and from their NOTEWORTHY collection I used, JUST BE YOU.  I got the tag from the MY FAVORITE STORY paper collection called, GOOD LIFE - I mean how cute is that little tag!  I used the cut-a-parts side and the other side from their NOTEWORTHY collection called LOVELY MOMENTS to frame the photo.  I'm in love with those cut-a-parts!

I also used some of mini puffy alphas from their NOTEWORTHY collection.  The "BUNNY' Alphas were from American Crafts called GETAWAY (love those)!  

I used 2 element stickers from the HELLO SPRING collection from ECHO PARK.  

The foam bunnies, chick and eggs were all from my stash I've had for a while.  

To see how it all came together, click the video below!

Tag You're It Challenge - Day 6

 Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by and following along on this Tag You're It hop sponsored by....

 Piece Craft Love!  

To learn more about this hop, go here.

I'm here on Day 6 and guess what?  I loved using my Simple Stories Birthday Collection so much that I chose to use the PARTY PROMPT again and make a Birthday Card!

I started out like this



I started with an A4 card stock in White that I got from Color Play...some times I'm just too lazy to cut my own🤷🏻‍♀️

From the Simple Stories Birthday Blast Collection I used a Cut-A-Part that said "Happy Birthday", the 6x8 paper pad (I chose a solid blue and a confetti pattern) for the front of the card, along with a scrap of red card stock that I adhered lengthwise and added some of my Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow.

For the inside of the card also used some of the ephemera pack and found 2 really cute TAGS for the inside with a banner to match!  I also decided to add a bit of mixed media with some TIM HOLTS DISTRESSED INKS in SQUEEZED LEMONADE and CRACKED PISTACHIO along with a star stencil and I loved how it turned out!

Here is the finished product:

Tag You're It Challenge Day 5

 Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by and following along on this Tag You're It hop sponsored by....

 Piece Craft Love!

Today is Day 5 of our 31 days of Tags and Prompts!  Today is all about Simple Stories Birthday Bash!


Here is What Prompts I used for Day 5: PARTY & STICKERS

I used one of my nesting dies to cut a TAG from a cut-apart from the Simple Stories Birthday Blast Collection. Other than the SMILE epoxy sticker I used, everything else came from the SIMPLE STORIES BIRTHDAY BLAST Collection...Foam Stickers and 4x6 sticker book.

The background 12x12 paper came from a pad I got from Michaels and the LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH is a piece I cut from a 12x12 pattern paper that came from one of our Traveling Boxes we do in our MEWE group!  I did you some of my favorite Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow!

This came together super fast and I'm not made at it! We always have those birthday pics from when our kids are little but we seem to stop taking them as they grow up.  I was happy to have found this one.

Tag, You're It! Challenge - Day 3

 Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by and following along on this Tag You're It hop sponsored by....

 Piece Craft Love!

For more info on how to play go here!

I'm here on Day 3 of the #TAGYOUREIT Challenge and having a great time coming up with these tag layouts!  I'm also still in the PinkFresh Studio mode so come join me and see what I collection I use for this layout...

This is how I started


For Day 3 I'm digging out the following PFS stash I just got in that amazing box they just did a few weeks ago.

For the papers - The background paper was this really awesome grid paper with some green foliage type design on the edges that I love so much called OH SO DELIGHTFUL from their DAYS OF SPLENDOR collection.  I also used the paper, LOVELY MOMENTS from their NOTEWORTHY collection.  I cut that into strips and used both sides to add a splash of color with the green and blues I was focusing on (GREEN & BLUE are both prompts in the challenge).  I also used a 6x6 pad from SOME DAYS paper-pack to back the photo.

I dug deep into my stash for those cute PFS frames I've had them for 2 years and are just using the last of them up.  

For the Puffy Stickers I used - LET'S STAY HOME collection, I used some Ephemera from DAYS OF SPLENDOR (regular and floral pack) & OFFICE HOURS. The Chipboard flairs (that I am in love with) came from their DAYS OF SPLENDOR collection and the Tag itself came from the LET'S STAY HOME collection.

I actually started out with some inks but I ended up covering 95% of it up, but isn't that how it goes some times when making your layouts🤷🏻‍♀️  I cut a total of 8 strips and put 4 going diagonal and 4 going horizontal.  As I said above, I used both sides of that paper so I could pull some color in.  

I backed the frames with some of the NOTEWORTHY paper I had left over from cutting the strips.  I used the 4 because that's how old my granddaughter is in this picture, the other ones I used for the words and colors.

I added the ephemera piece that says HOME on the tag and put in a journaling card, added some of the floral ephemera pieces to the back of it and found the word TOGETHER that I liked and to finish it off, I used the worlds smallest title that says MY FAMILY above the puffy sticker that says THESE ARE MY PEOPLE.

The finished layout.

Tag You're It! Challenge Day 2

 Hi guys thanks so much for stopping by and following along on this Tag You're It hop sponsored by....

 Piece Craft Love!

This is Day 2 and I'm here working on a few different Prompts from the Challenge, (click here to see my blog on all the deets for this CHALLENGE) one of them being WINTER and I'm using this gorgeous paper from PinkFresh Studio!  This is one of my favorite papers in the OH, WHAT FUN! collection.  It's called HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS and I'm just in love with it...I mean who doesn't love paper that does most of the work for you!

Here is what I started with


As you guys know I had recently ordered that fabulous box from PinkFresh Studio and with this gorgeous paper came some tags from the same collection so of course I had to use it.  I wanted to document my mom and I celebrating Christmas together (CELEBRATE is another PROMPT for the challenge by the way), so I printed out 3 pictures (about 3x3) and wanted to use all of them.  I did manage to cover up a bit of the paper but I didn't mind, it left a tiny bow at the top of that picture which I thought was just so cute!

I cut the tag so I could fit the picture of us in the horse drawn carriage, and still have the OH, WHAT FUN saying showing.   I added the title, CHRISTMAS MAGIC puffy sticker from the same collection.  I also added the textured stars at the top (TEXTURE is another prompt from the challenge).  I used modeling paste with SKY BLUE liquid water color from PFS and it turned out amazing!

That PFS box came with almost the entire collection from OH WHAT FUN! so I started pulling out a lot of puffy stickers and stars and words (WORDS is another prompt from the challenge)..  I also used an acetate ephemera (EPHEMERA is another prompt from the challenge) from Heidi Swapp that says OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS, which was perfect for this layout, I mean come on, we are in a horse and carriage at Christmas time!

I grabbed a few puffy stickers (STICKERS is another prompt...I'm rocking these PROMPTS on this layout) from Studio Calico...I mean that Santa hat...am I right?  

The photos are backed with Authentique Wintery Collection from a 6x6 paper pad I had in my stash.  The twine was the last thing I put on the tag and tada, finished!

Pink Ribbon Layout

 Hey guys, thanks for joining me here on my blog today!  For today's layout I'm doing this pink ribbon layout in my mom's honor.  This was her third time with Breast Cancer!  I flew to VA to be with her and we had to go into DC to the hospital where she was having her surgery.  This was the picture of her waiting nervously for them to call her back.  She was a trooper and made it through and is 8 years CANCER FREE!


I pulled out some stash from Photoplay Fight Like a Girl collection and Moxie Fight Back collection and dug though some other stash to find what I wanted to use for this.  The idea was to focus on the pink ribbon and to put some bits and pieces inside of it.  Since her outfit and the background would have clashed I decided to print the photo in black and white.

I wasn't sure how I was going to do it, but I knew I had to start with the shape of the ribbon so I went online and printed and fussy cut it..  I lined it up where I wanted it on the paper and then put small pencil marks around it to get the shape.  After that I went into my Nuvo drops found my Pink Berry and put a drop where each pencil mark was.


I then went into my water colors and added a few areas of color so I could put the word HOPE I die cut out using some PinkFresh Studio paper, the epoxy ribbon flair and the words ALWAYS IN MY HEART...the color was to make each of those items pop since they were mostly white and the paper was white.

I used my small butterfly punch and punched out some pink butterflies, added 2 stickers from the Moxie Stickers in the center of the ribbon so it wouldn't feel empty.

I added puffy stickers from: 
PFS - Let's Stay Home Collection
Maggie Holmes - Sweet Stories
Hedi Swap - journal studio 
Sticko - Everyday heart
The Paper Studio - puffy sticker and dimensional stickers

I backed the photo with some pink acetate paper and a light pink stock paper behind it. Added some Bella Blvd Ciao Chip - My Candy Girl Collection, some ephemera from Paige Evans Wonders collection, a few more puffy stickers and a few sequins and finished off with some gold splatters.

The finished layout

Thanks again for stopping by my blogger!  Please follow me on YT and MEWE and leave some comments below to let me know if you've ever made a layout using Nuvo drops to form a shape.

Here come the details: 

Come play along all month long in AUGUST with these daily prompts, focusing on using TAGS...but no commitment needed, if you can join us for a few layouts (or crafty goodness) or you really need that push to get some layouts done, or if you just want to see all the cool stuff we come up with, that's great too...and you know we love comments and those 👍.... they give us the warm and fuzzies😊.

 If you want to be qualified for that awesome PRIZE you have to play along, hashtag it and every layout, junk journal, art journal craft anything counts as an entry so if you are feelin' crafty and want to do 2 or 3 in one day, that's 2 or 3 entries for the PRIZE!!  WHOOP WHOOP!

Hey guys, thanks so much for stopping by my blogger today!  I have a PinkFresh Studio layout that I'm excited to share with you.  Every month they have a Challenge up on their website/blog and this month for July it's all about butterflies and a certain color pallet.  So I'm going to show you what I came up with and used from their collections and a few others that aren't PFS (their rules say you don't have to use everything PFS, but most of it was)!


I started with this picture of my long time very good friend who has been through so much in her life and now she has been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer🎗  She is a fighter for sure and this picture is her last day of the hell of chemo that she went through and she got an all clear from the doctors!  They gave her a plaque and she got to ring that bell🙌

I wanted to do a layout of this very special moment for her and frame it and send it to her.  I thought the butterflies were a great symbol for this special moment, like a re-birth of a moth to a butterfly...her life is starting over in a new direction.

I started off with PFS paper collect from MY FAVORITE STORY called - PLANT KINDNESS and wanted to make it pop with a bright yellow around the edges so I added SIMPLE STORIES COLOR VIBE in Yellow.  I was going to use some bigger butterflies from Anna Giffin and use a smaller picture but I decided that didn't work for me.  I wanted the focus on her and not the butterflies so I used a punch from my stash that punched out very small butterflies that were perfect!

I am loving these PFS wood scent stickers from their OFFICE HOURS COLLECTION and the "YOU GOT THIS" was just perfect for this layout!  I also fell in love with the PFS - YOU ARE STRONGER paper from their LET'S STAY HOME collection.  The words are so beautiful and the color is gorgeous as well.   I used a die cut frame I had and cut both the paper and the plain border around it. I reached deep into my stash to find the bouquet of flowers from Jen Hadfield to place in the middle of it. 

The "TODAY'S STORY" is a cut-a-part from PFS collection NOTEWORTHY called BE CURIOUS.  I added a sticker to it from a THE PAPER STUDIO Butterly kit a bought from Hobby Lobby...the color was spot on!  The Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon I cut from a die cut I got from one of my favorite shops CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I used PFS paper, SUPER COOL collection called CHOIR and backed it with the same plain green paper I had in my stash.  I added a brad to the middle of it from FSJ/SPELLBINDERS.  The rest of the ephemera came from PFS as well as the circle chipboard flairs that I absolutely love!  The title YOU DID IT is PFS tiny puffy alphas I purchased from PIECE CRAFT LOVE, one of my new favorite shops! I mixed from 2 different collections NOTEWORTHY and DAYS OF SPLENDOR.  I finished it off with the tiny green and yellow butterflies and some stickers from the THE PAPER STUDIO kit.  


I hope she likes how this turned out.  I think the colors in this collection are perfect for a layout like this.  Please leave some comments below and let me know what you think.  Come follow me on YT and join our group over on MEWE, we would love to have you!

Thanks again for stopping by and make it a scrapy day!
