Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card


Today was a sad day for me...
I said my goodbye to a long time friend, colleague and mentor. I had worked with Jan for almost 20 years. She was super smart, so funny and sarcastic, beautiful, and one the best Nurses I've ever worked with. She was for a very long time our Charge Nurse and go to person for all our questions and always someone I looked up to and admired.  When I first started at the hospital one day at lunch, I remember a comment Jan made to me. She said that I looked like I was just a kid and that I could be her daughter, (she probably would of had to have me at 16, lol) but from that point on she became my work mom. Today was her celebration of life and though she left us too soon, she had a beautiful one. I will miss her terribly as we all will at work 😪 

So on to today's card...
As sad as the situation is, I always like to look for the beauty in things, and as I made this card I thought of Jan. I think Jan would of loved this card and hopefully her family will too.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

The card was actually quite simple to put together. I began by stamping out the background with versamark ink and then added some Raven embossing powder and heat set it, then die cut my panel.
Next, I cut out the prayers word die 4 times. To the top prayer die I stamped the coordinating stamp on top again using versamark ink and this time used gold embossing powder and heat set it. I then stacked and glued 3 of the word dies together. Finally I cut out the velum layer, stamped and heat set the images and then glued the prayers in place. Right behind where I had glued the prayers stacked dies, I then glued the last die cut behind the vellum. This created a larger surface area to adhere the vellum layer to the front panel and it also lifted the vellum off the card ever so slightly.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

To the inside, I just finished the card with this simple sentiment.


Hope this card Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card has inspired you today.
Goodbye Jan 💔

FREE - Forty Birthday Cake Topper SVG and Studio File


Hello and welcome back friends!

Last week I shared with you all a card I made for one of my best friends who recently turned 40. Well today I want to share not only the cake I made for her but I also want to give you the file for the cake topper I created in her honour... for FREE of course!

With limited time, I thought making a naked cake for her celebration would be the quickest and easiest... well I was kind of right. It was way quicker than making a fondant covered cake but not the easiest, as I had never done this before. I am truly and happy with the results and love the look of the fresh flowers, which was a first for me too!

The cake itself was half vanilla and half chocolate. 
Bottom layers chocolate, top vanilla.
I used 10 inch pans for bottom tier and 6 inch for the top tier.
The entire cake was covered with vanilla buttercream icing and finished it with a caramel syrup.

Doesn't it look Yummy!? 😋


As for the cake topper...

I designed the topper using the Silhouette Studio Software.
I cut out 3 layers of heavy 110 lbs white cardstock. 
Glued them back to back with a spray adhesive.
Cut out my glitter layer and adhered that one to the top. 
(I didn't have any gold glitter paper left, so I improvised and used a piece of Cricut Glitter Vinyl in gand adhered it to a piece of 60 lb cardstock and then cut it out... worked like a charm!)
I then used hot glue to secure a very thin wooden dowel to the back of the topper,
and that's it... fancy DIY topper all done!

For a visual how to click HERE← for a previous cake topper video. 
Also, check out the links below for products I used to make the topper.

First Holy Communion Cake Topper + FREE Files


One of my most popular posts was how I made my Cake Toppers inexpensively out of paper (Click HERE for that post). 

Today I have another Cake Topper to show you. This one is perfect for any of you looking for a First Communion Topper. I made this one for My God Daughter's cake and want to share the files I made with all of you. The nice thing about these toppers is that they can make a simple plain cake look fabulous with very little effort.

Isn't it so pretty and elegant?! 
And, if you're looking for ideas for a boy, simply leave off the pink Cross or cut it out of blue paper.


Click on the links below the post to see what supplies I used. I used glitter foil paper from Recollections and avoided a glittery mess (this one does not flake), sorry could't find a link for it.
For those of you that want to watch it all come together and the how to's, here is the process video.

Mom's 60th Birthday Card - SSS Sketch Ranunculus + Big Scripty Greetings


Happy Birthday to my Momma! This week she turned 60!!! 
I LOVE you MOM!

So today I am sharing the card I made for her with you.
Isn't she purdy?

This was also my first time trying out the Michael's Recollections Color Splash Crayons, which funny enough I think may now be discontinued. I wanted to add them to my product list below but couldn't find any links for them so I linked up a similar product. (Update: found a link so just added it). Anyways I was impressed with how easy they were to watercolor with and I really liked the shimmer they left behind.

 I love the both these stamp sets from Simon Says Stamps, I will definitely be using more in the future.

Here is a closer look at this beauty!

I hope you were inspired by my Mom's 60th Birthday Card featuring SSS Stamps Sketch Ranunculus + Big Scripty Greetings.
