Make | Card – “Hey There, Handsome”

Card | Hey, There Handsome

I had such good intentions to make stuff this week. But I have been doing everything BUT being creative lately, AGH! I made myself sit down yesterday with a very limited selection of product (and a very limited amount of time), and made this crazy simple card.

Three different pieces of 6×6 paper, and a little embellishment, and that’s it!

Oh, and yes, I purposely tried to make something not pink and girly for once.

Card - Hey There Handsome

Supplies Used: patterned paper (Crate Paper Craft Market 6×6 pad), sentiment (cut from Heidi Swapp September Skies 6×6 paper), chipboard hearts (Studio Calico)

Make | Card – “One In A Million”

Card - One In A Million

I’m in the middle of a work travel week (that didn’t get off to the greatest start), and then a just-for-fun visit to Nashville after that’s over, so my internetting time is pretty limited at the moment. But mega YAY for travels that shake things up! My Project Life and my actual life were feeling a bit dull lately.

I didn’t get a chance to prep this blog that much in advance before leaving, so I’m going to pop in here real quick with this card, and I’ll be back with more sometime next week.

I hope you all have a snug, warm, crafty weekend! (It is hella cold where I’m at in Missouri right now, yipes)

Card - One In A Million (2)

Supplies Used: medal sticker (Crate Paper Notes & Things), sentiment sticker (Simple Stories photo stickers), patterned paper (Crate Paper), border sticker (Teresa Collins), gold washi tape

Make | Card – “You Are Fabulous!”

Card | You Are Fabulous

Happy Galentine’s Day, lovely ladies! I thought this pink card with the “fabulous” sentiment would be appropriate for today.

Not a lot to this…a scrap of patterned paper behind the frame, a strip of gold washi on the bottom of it, and one of Shimelle’s pretty die cut pieces pop dotted on top. Photo corners on the patterned background piece, annnnd calling it done.

And on another note, I hope your Valentine’s Day is full of candy, alcohol, or nothing, depending on how you like to spend it!

Card  | Fabulous 2

Supplies Used: pink patterned paper (Crate Paper Notes & Things 6×6 pad), “fabulous” die cut (Shimelle ephemera pack), chipboard frame (Crate Paper Notes & Things frames), gold photo corners (3L Scrapbook Adhesives), gold glitter washi tape

Make | Card – “Hi”

Make | Card | Blackbird Darlin

As I write this, Seattle is in a dreary mist of forgetting That Thing That Happened Sunday. The Play Which Shall Not Be Named.

That last minute of the Superbowl was painful, ya’ll. Oof.

So onward to pretty things!

I haven’t been making very many cards lately, but here’s one that evolved pretty quickly from my stash, and a recent Citrus Twist Kit. I mounted the floral die cut on a pop dot to match the dimension of the chipboard frame, and those gold photo corners just look so dang good on everything. WHEN am I going to get sick of gold?? Why does it match everything? (At least in my brain)

Make | Card – “Hit The Books”

Card | Hit The Books | Blackbird Darlin

I am such a sucker for anything with books on it. This patterned piece has been hanging in my stash for awhile, waiting for a project. Yay, used!

Besides cardstock for the base, this card is made out of only two patterned pieces, and a couple of strips from my handy Dymo labeler. I sat forever looking at it, thinking “uhhh, is this finished?” before I finally decided that…

YES. CRAFTING CAN BE THAT SIMPLE.

Card | Hit The Books | Blackbird Darlin

Supplies Used: book paper (October Afternoon Reading paper), wood paper (My Mind’s Eye Wood Necessities 6×6 pad), Dymo labeler
