My eldest daughter started high school this year and has made some lovely friends. She was invited to one of her friends birthdays last weekend. I made this card for her friend. I am hoping that he likes the card. I used the gears from the Garage Gears Dies to cut out in copper foil.
I embossed the Gray Granite card base with the Brick & Mortar folder and then using a dauber I inked around the edge of the card and on some of the bricks.
I cut out the Basic Gray card stock using the Stitched Rectangle dies and stamped the sentiment on there in Tuxedo Black Momento. I adhered everything with my tombow glue rather than dimensionals.
It was my youngest daughter’s 10th birthday this week and it is encouraged to take something to school to share with the class. I used to make cupcakes for the class but changed it up a few years ago as I knew I was going to be very time poor just before their birthdays so I started making a little something for them to hand out to the class.
This year I used some chupa chups and made these cute little lollypop holders. I found the idea on pinterest and found this gorgeous idea, however it was in italian so had to use some tech skills to translate some of the measurements and I was then able to figure it out. I finished off the edge of card stock with the story label punch. I have used a retired punch for this as it was just perfect. I used a retired hand held punch to make a hole in the top and then tied some twine to hold it on and used a dimensional to hold it in place.
You can purchase any of these products, apart from the retired items, from my online store by clicking on any of the links below.
Again I was playing with my two favourite products from the Occasions Catalogue. The Birthday Cheer Stamp set and the How Sweet it is Designer Series Paper (DSP)
This time I was using the DSP as the background and doing this means I really don’t need to do too much to the card. I cut off a strip of DSP and flipped it over to give some contrast. I then just stamped the image onto the punched out circle and layered it all up and its then done.
This is another card that my campers will be making at my Papercrafters Retreat. The registration has closed but you could order the “Retreat in a Box”.

My brother turned 50 this month and we had a family dinner celebrating. With a big Birthday like this I wanted to make a special birthday card for him. So I pulled out some of the new products that are being released in the new Occasions Catalogue and made this card.
I used Basic Gray as my card base and then layered Basic Black on top and some new Designer Series Paper on top. This paper is the new Classic Garage paper stack. I used the retired Large Numbers Framelits and embossed them to add some extra detail. I used the foil sheets for the numbers as well and with the heat from the heat tool it melted some of the foil and that’s how you get the look of the white and smoky slate.
The cogs were all cut out using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and I have used the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You can earn this foil for FREE with an order of $90 from January 3rd, 2019.
I stamped on the envelope to match it in with the card and I added an insert in the card to write on and stamped some images on the insert as well. I really love how the card turned out and my brother liked the card too. His wife makes cards and so he understands that a bit of time would have gone into making this card for him.
If you like any of the products I’ve used just click on the link below of the product you like and it will take you to my online shop where you can find all of these products and more.
At the conference we were at last month I needed to create a few cards as I was doing a workshop. Here is one of the cards that I created. I wanted to show how you can use some only a few products to create a card that they could duplicate.
Rather than using extra cardstock I punched the tailored punch out of the coloured card stock. Once the designer paper is layered on top you can’t even see where you punched.
I used the Animal Outing stamp set in the background. Then used the “Happy Birthday” from the Picture Perfect Birthday.
