Spring Thank You Card


Hello crafty friends!

Today I have another sweet and simple Spring Thank You card to share with you.

I keep getting inspired by all the crafty goodness from the FB Stamping Enablers Group. If you are at all interested in stamping you need to join their group! BTW I'm not affiliated with them at all, but if you are looking to get inspired they are a truly an enabling group :)

What better way to say thank you then with flowers!
At least these ones will last forever ;)


Here is the recipe for this card:
  • Stamps - Spring Hello by Lia - Hero Arts
  • Ink - distress inks - Tim Holtz
    • Tuxedo Black - Memento
  • Blending tool - 1 Inch Round - Ranger
  • Stamp Positioner - my own DIY Stamping tool
  • Dies - Wonky Stiched Rectangles Stax- My Favorite Things Die-Namics 
    • Flower pot (present) - Party Dies - Craftin Desert Divas
  • Cardstock - Neenah Solar White 80lbs
    • Craft - Recollections
  • Twine - hemp twine

The flower and leaf stamps once stamped were then cut on the Silhouette PixScan mat using a scanner. Click HERE for a previous tutorial on the pixscan/scanner method.

The hardest part of the card was piecing and layering the flower arrangement!


 Hope you've enjoyed my card today :)

Thank YOU all for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Hello Spring Celtic Card


Hello Everyone!!!

I cannot remember the last time we have had such a mild winter. The little snow that we had is almost all gone! Every year it feels like we only get a few weeks of Spring and then go straight into summer because of our extremely long winters! This year I think we will see it fairly soon (fingers crossed). I cannot wait for Spring to arrive!

When I first say the latest FREE Celtic Card file from SVG Cuts, I immediately was inspired to create a Spring/Easter card. Look just how beautiful it turned out! 


Here is a close up of these dainty little flowers and the stamped sentiment.


and a peek at the inside!


For those interested...
Here is the recipe for this card:
  • SVG fileFREE Celtic Card

Valentine's Day Post Office Drop Box


Hey everyone!

Back again with another mail box creation for the teacher! This time this super cute Valentine's Day Post Office Drop Box comes from SVG Cuts Valentine Mailboxes SVG Kit and the little letters are files from Hearts Aflame SVG Kit

This project was super easy to put together and fairly quick. I think I took longer choosing the papers then assembling it! It's a good last minute treat box if you don't have lots of time to waste ;)


I was so excited to use my Simon Says Teacher die, that came in a few days ago.
I'm always making teachers things and this little die will come in so handy!


The paper I used comes from My Mind's Eye - Filled with Love paper Pad

To finish the back I added a couple of die cut hearts and stamped one of them with a sentiment from the Love Stamp and Cut Set from Hero Arts.


I wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day! Hope my little Valentine's Day Post Office Drop Box has inspired you with some creativity :)

For those of you done with Valentines and want to move on to Spring, check out the latest SVG Cuts Kit Springtime Box Cards SVG Kit. Beautiful isn't it?!

Valentine's Day Mail House


Are you ready for Valentine's Day?! 
I most definitely am NOT :(  Still working on some last minute projects!

Every year I like to make something special for the teachers. This year one of them will be receiving this super cute Valentine's Day Mail House! 

How CUTE is that!?! LOVE it!


The awesome files I used to make this beauty comes from SVG Cuts Hugs and Kisses SVG Kit and the Hearts Aflame SVG Kit.


The stamp I used on the front door comes from Fleurette Bloom's Happy Days Stamp Set.
Paper from Pink Paislee - Pen Pals


As you can see I altered the house a little by adding a slit to the roof to the house from  Hugs and Kisses SVG Kit. To create this you must add the same slit line to the roof panel and each roof liner (top and inside piece). You will have to ungroup some files to be able to do this and copy the opening in the exact same spot on each piece. Regroup everything once you are done.  Really easy, just make sure the opening is wide enough for the letters!


There is still plenty of time to create one of these for yourself or as a gift for someone!
Hope this has inspired you to create your own Valentine's Day Mail House :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love is in the Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card


Hey everyone!

Finally got around to creating something for Valentines Day! YAY for LOVE! Riding a Hot Air Balloon is still on my bucket list... maybe one day soon I will get to do that!

These cute hot air balloons and cloud stamps I used come from Fleurette Bloom's Up, Up and Away Stamp Set. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to vividly colour them in. The arched banner is a PnC (print and cut) file from her Love is in the Air Hot Air Balloon SVG Kit done with the Silhouette Cameo. I also used the Spellbinder pierced Rectangle dies to create the Shaker portion of the card. 


To finish off the card, I added another stamped sentiment to inside panel. The hearts are also from the Up, Up and Away Stamp Set and the sentiment comes from the Happy Day Stamp Set.


 Hope you "LOVE" my Love is in the Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card and are inspired to create one of your own!

FOR A CHANCE TO WIN the Up, Up, and Away Stamp Set
