People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.

Two quick cards to share with you today. 

The Mother's Day card was inspired by the May 2012 issue of CardMaker magazine.  I loved the simply stitched alphabet that had a DIY, but I was too lazy, so I just search online for stitched fonts and I found this really cute blanket stitch font, but I can't remember which site I downloaded it from since I visited so many.


Paper:  Kraft Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Patterned paper all from My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody except sheet music print which is from My Mind's Eye Follow your Heart.

Stamps:  Hero Arts Printer Type

Inks: Copics B000 and B13

Tools:  Stampin' Up! flower punches and tiny circle, Papertrey Ink flower dies and Limitless Layers circle dies. 

Embellishments:  Button, pins and lace from stash.

This next card is another card inspired by Mish.  I think I have found a new favorite paper!


Paper:  Rustic Cream Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Howdy Doody (My Mind's Eye), plain notebook paper.

Stamps:  Take Note and Mat Stack 3 for sentiment (Papertrey Ink)

Inks:  Juniper (CTMH)  The mist spray I mixed to get a color match and I used so many blues and greens I can't even remember them all.  Let's just say this is a one of a kind color because I probably will never be able to create it again.

Tools:  Butterfly punch, circle punches (Stampin' Up!), scallop border die (Papertrey Ink), Tim Holtz tiny stapler

Embellishments:  Vintage button (Papertrey Ink), baker's twine from stash.

Etsy shop update

New FUN PACKAGING now up in my etsy shop. I have a great selection of cute little paper bags in different colors and patterns. These are awesome to use on scrapbook pages to hold journaling cards or use them in cards as gift card holders. I punch holes along the sides to add them to my mini-albums. Use them for goodie bags or wedding favors. The possibilities are endless! Here are a few examples of what I have available. To see more, visit me on Etsy here.

Sketch Layout

I used two sketches from PageMaps to create this two page layout.

The left page is from October 2011 and the right is Jan. 2012.  I modified them slightly to create a two page layout.



Paper:  Colonial White Cardstock (CTMH), Vintage, Accent Cuts and Curtains from Crate Paper Random Collection, Orange Mini Dot from Simple Stories Fabulous, Ashtyn polkadot from 3 Bugs in a Rug and Apple Orchard from Basic Grey Picadilly collection.

Other:  Doilies from stash, crochet flowers from Petaloo, foam letters from Pink Paislee

Dies:  Spellbinders circles and scallop circles.

Have a great Wednesday!
