Anniversary Card with Inspired Thoughts

Today I have a quick, easy and clean card for you to make.  I was surprised to see on my calendar that we are coming up on our son’s 1st anniversary already. With our move only a few days away, I thought I better send it early, so I don’t forget. Where does the time go?
I decided to keep this card simple and clean.  That means no embellishments, ribbons or dimensionals.  Just a clean card that focuses on our sentiment and love. I also took some of the designer paper and glued it to the flap of the envelope to make it extra special.  Read more for Instructions & Supplies.

Lucky Clover Treat Box

I have a quick video for you today with a St. Patrick’s Day Treat Box  using our Lucky Clover Stamp Set.  We do not have the Clover punch available anymore, but you won’t need it for this box.
I found a Limited Addition Hostess Cupcake at Walmart, that is Lime flavored and really good.  It made me think it would make a perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day.  You can put any treat or anything you want to show in this cute window box.  
I’ll show you how to mask words on a stamp to get just the words you want for your saying.

Adorable Owls Valentine’s Treat Box

I have a fast and easy Valentine treat for you today. Great for classrooms, co-workers, social groups like book clubs, card groups, bible studies, etc. This adorable owl is so cute!  I love the stamps in this set that you can earn for FREE in our Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The heart and sentiment comes from our Country Bouquet Bundle.  The candy slides in from either side.  I hope you enjoy the video.

Happy Easter Card

I have a fun Easter card for you today.  Yes, it’s early, but Easter is April 9th this year and I wanted to start early getting ready and this adorable bunny is just hopping into my hands.
I am using the new Easter Bunny bundle in our new Mini catalog and the Designer paper is from Country Gingham.  I used my bunny punch to punch out the bunny for this card, which made it fast and easy.  No coloring involved.  I saved the coloring for the eggs.  Read More for Instructions and Supplies

Thanks a Bunch Card

I am using another 2 FREE products today.  One called Thanks a Bunch.  It’s such a fun stamp set.  I have seen it used in the most creative ways.  You can turn the carrot on it’s side and stamp it as grass or turn it upside down and use it as tall trees.  It’s so much more than just carrots!  The other is the beautiful Dandy Designs Designer paper on page 14.  This paper has beautiful Spring colors that will carry you through the next few months.  There are 48 sheets to the pack.  4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  I am using two of the designs on this card.
My card is the traditional carrots grouped in a bunch and it makes an adorable thank you card. To see the instructions & Supplies read more!
