Seaside Summertime Card with Maja Design


I'm here to share a card I made for my sister.  My husband and I adore the ocean and beach.  Each summer, my sister kindly lets us stay at her vacation home in Florida near the ocean.  This is my "thank you" to her for opening her vacation home to us.  
 My card features the Summertime collection by Maja Design - especially the die cut sheet.  Look how darling the image is?  


 I embellished the card with some die cuts of my own from Spellbinders and Joy Crafts in a nautical theme.

Because I used the sweet image from the die set, no need to add many other embellishments.  I let the papers do most of my "talking".  



Thanks so much for stopping here to visit.   You can use the helpful Store Finder link to shop for your Maja Design collections.  The link can be found here

Feminine Cards - With LemonCraft and JustRite

I'm here today to share some projects using a beautiful collection for summer called, 'Just Love Me' from LemonCraft.    This collection is soft and delicate and perfect for feminine cards.  It was included as part of the Flying Unicorns August kit of the month - lucky for all those who have the kit because the collection is soft and gorgeous.   


I have created three cards  using this collection  which I'd love to share.  I added some of the fun  coordinating buttons from the collection as well as chipboard pieces from Lemoncraft.  They are so beautiful.  These cards can be found on the LemonCrafdt blog post right  here

This is the first card made for a friend who has been sick.  




This is the second card also made using the  'Just Love Me' collection 6x6 paper pad.  The butterflies on this card are from Lemoncraft and are chipboard.  Aren't they lovely?  

This card was made using the 6x6 paper pad and combining two sheets together to form a border strip.  I used the string in the middle to hide the seams from the paper.  



This is a third card using 'Just Love Me'.  For this card, I used a beautiful die set from JustRite as the focal center.  The die is the Classy Frame and Tag set.  The cute center was created by isolating some flowers on my paper and die cutting it out.  Then I ran a delicate piece of ribbon through the cut piece and mounted using a piece of dimensional foam ( a foam dot). 


Thank you for stopping by!

Fun with Foils and Julie Nutting Dolls





Fun With Foils

We had a fun challenge between Prima and Julie Nuttin's Team - to use the Prima foils on a doll project.    I used the foil and rub-on adhesives on Megan's dress for an added touch of pizzaz. 

I love the textured look that can be achieved with the foils. I love to give the dolls dimension and found the foils really enhanced the dimension by adding that great texture. I also added a rub-on foil heart at the top of my card. 

Julie featured our fun foil projects on her blog and the post can be seen here

I have some additional gold accents under the doll - the Prima gold doily and Prima's Memory Hardware Rocquencourt Lace by Frank Garcia.  


Thanks for stopping by.

JustRite Card -Wishing You Joy



I'm here to show off my wonderful JustRite Papercraft dies and stamps.  Here is a card I recently made using a few of my wonderful JustRite stamps and dies.  

The focal embellishment on this card was created using the Damask Flourish One Die, shown below.  This is a cool die set because it is comprised of two dies - a background die and the detailed filigree type top layer die.  This allows you to create some drama behind the die if you wish - for example imagine this - a bold black background with a robust red top filigree layer.  

But since I am not a dramatic type card maker - I opt for the soothing cream background and will leave the drama crafting up to you.  


My sweet little sentiment stamp, "wishing you joy" is also from JustRite -  JustRite Papercrafts - Small Oval Wishes Clear Stamp .  This stamp is delicate and small so I really think it's perfect to tuck into a card without overwhelming and overpowering.  I want to wish you joy - but not shout it at you with boldness, thus I prefer smaller delicate sentiments when possible.  

Thanks for stopping here for a look.  You can find many more stamps and dies from JustRite on their website and Facebook page.
