Anniversary Damask Card

I made this card based of a design from Unscripted Sketches - a fun site that posts a sketch every Saturday to "inspire" you! One of my favorite patterns is damask so I started with that as my base.

I also embossed a "damsky" design in the middle from a stamp set I had from my wedding back in 2007 (glad I was able to use it again). The embossing took countless times as I tried to repeat the pattern 3 times and also have it emboss without burning. I ended up stamping each one and embossing each one before I moved on to the next.

The "Love" metal sentiment was a great find at a rummage sale. It added a little vintage, romantic feel to the card.

Supplies Used:
Crillon 1 clear stamp set from Lil' Davis Designs - damask stamp
Say It With Style clear stamp set from CTMH - "Happy Anniversary" sentiment
Marcasite embossing powder - Stampendous
Vintage Black Damask paper form The Paper Studio
Black brads
Black ribbon
Cream and Red cardstocks
Black stamp pad

Happy Birthday card

This card came about as a way to use a flower stamp from my Grandma's stamp collection. I used glitter embossing powder and a clear embossing stamp with the pad. I also used the Sizzix purse and a "happy birthday" embossing folder to make the brown background. The pattern cardstock is from my fave paper pack from K&Company: the Amy Butler line.

Supplies used:
"Happy Birthday" embossing folder
Sentiment - "Say it in Style" clear stamps from CTMH
Pattern cardstock - K&Company Amy Butler set
Brown Gems
Glitter embossing powder
Clear embossing stamp pad

Charlie Brown Canvas

This is a Charlie Brown canvas art piece I made. It is on a 10 x 10 canvas. I created my own svg file from a picture using Inkscape. The file wasn't perfect so some of the pieces were hand cut. It is a mix of cardstock and vinyl.

Blinged-out Cricut

Bored one day at a slow craft fair, I decided to give my Cricut so
me style using vinyl. Most of the shapes are from the Forest Friends doodlebat. The complete Forest Friends doodlebat set can be purchased from Lettering Delights. Click Here to purchase. Doodlebats are loaded into Sure Cuts a Lot as a font. Each shape is attached a letter on the keyboard. Very easy to do and I use the Forest Friends a lot!

"Just Because" card using "Affinity" line from The Paper Studio

This card I made using the new "Affinity" line from The Paper Studio. The circle papers, ribbon, and brad are all from the line. Idea for the card was from Kristina Werner. The flower layers were cut using a layered flowers svg I had.

The Most Perfect Vinyl Bin

The most perfect vinyl bin - on wheels, pullable, pushable, easy to store!
I purchased this from Target for $19.99. It was found in the storage section and is suppose to be a toy storage bin for kids. This could easily hold 20+ rolls of 16" long vinyl. Love it!!!
