Seas & Greetings!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the
 Dies R Us Store

I love interactive cards and was so super excited to give the 

I started out by cutting out all my panels in some fun patterned papers and a coordinating solid:

I then figured out which patterned papers I wanted to use and placed then onto my solid cardstock and adhered my panels together.

Now came the fun part! I cut out some fun nautical pieces from the Nautical die set from Cutter Bee and some scallops from the Accordion Circle Card set  and started decorating my panels.

Here is what my finished card looks like:

I stamped my greeting onto a banner from the Banners die set from Cutter Bee and finished off my card with a couple of sequins and some paper buttons. I think it came out so cute and it was really simple to put together. I love all things nautical!

Here is a view from the top:

A Spring Hello

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Friday!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the

When I saw this inspiration board, I was inspired by a few things. I have recently been planting flowers and getting hanging baskets to add color to my front/back yards. A couple of years ago, my wonderful son built me a wooden flower box underneath the window on our shed. I love getting flowers and planting in that every year since then. The flowers and the basket in the above photo made me think of that. I was also drawn to the pink and purples and of course that adorable kitty!
With all of that in mind, I set out to make my card. I knew I was going to try and create a scene so I used a few different stamp/die sets. Here is a look at what I was inspired to create:

For my card, I used the Wonderful Window die from Lawn Fawn and cut out all the pieces in white. I colored my window box to appear as wood and colored each tulip alternating between pink and purple. Before I adhered my window to my card front, I added a little valance curtain and my light blue "wall". I used the grass from the Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set and well as the butterfly. My little kitty actually came from the Spooktacular stamp set and the Hello was one of the little freebies from placing a order. I think this came out so super cute!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate it!!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

I hope your Thursday is off to a terrific start!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the sketch challenge over at
I played along with sketch #98 which is:

and here is a look at the card I made based on the above sketch:

I recently purchased the stamp set with the telephone a few days ago and was happy to pull it out and use it so fast! Normally I just hoard new stamps and never use them haha! The stamp/die set is actually meant to be used as a shaker element but I decided to just pop up all the center pieces with foam tape and give it another look. I also had this fun patterned paper in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the telephone stamp so everything came together rather quickly. I love when that happens lol!

I really appreciate it!!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

May Project Life Cards

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!
It is rainy and stormy here so I'm staying inside and getting some crafting done.
I managed to make some more Project Life cards for a future PL layout using the May sketches from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style Challenge Blog.

I pulled out some fun Polka Dot cardstock and a couple of old sticker sheets to create my cards and once again I had a blast making these cards. If you guys are into pocket style scrapbooking, you really should check out the Sketches In Thyme PL Style Challenge Blog, I love their sketches. 

Here is a look at each sketch and the pocket card I made:

Here is a look at all four cards together:

Ok so last month when I played along, I posted where I was at in each of my three PL albums. I thought it would be kinda neat if I kept myself accountable each month by posting my progress. Here are my stats that I posted last month per album (album year/month currently on):

 2015: November
2016: June
2017: March

Well, I did not work on any of my albums so I have no progress to update. I am hoping there will be a change next month. Fingers crossed!! lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Stick It Down May Card Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends!
 I hope your day is off to a marvelous start!
 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

Here is another peek at the card sketch for May 2017:

Here is the card that I created based on the sketch:

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a long/tall card. I created my card base out of a piece of 7.5" x 9" cardstock. Once folded my card measures, 3.75" x 9". I stamped that cute little Penny Black image onto some white cardstock and colored her with my copic markers.  I stamped my greeting with some chalk ink and drew some lines around the border with a purple micron pen. I popped up my white panel with some foam tape. 

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog & take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)
