Valentines 5 for 5 - Day 2!

Hello friends and welcome to the Valentines 5 for 5 blog event!  Thanks to Donna and Rachel, we're back together for five days of Valentine inspiration!  Today's theme is pink and orange and I decided to go with a card.
I have a new collection of papers that have been sitting for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to use them!  I started off with a panel of patterned paper and added a greeting sticker, a Valentine banner, a couple of resin hearts, and some twine to finish it off.  I've been remodeling my craft room over the past couple of weeks and am having a hard time finding anything!  Luckily this paper collection was handy and came with all of the elements to make a card so I didn't have to find stamps to use!  :)

Thanks so much for visiting today we'll see you back tomorrow for another theme day!  Please be sure to check out the other 4 ladies making of this wonderful group!

Valentines 5 for 5 - Day 1!

Hello friends and welcome to the Valentines 5 for 5 blog event!  Thanks to Donna and Rachel, we're back together for five days of Valentine inspiration!  Today's theme is hearts and I have a fun little project I put together to share with you.
I found this cute little mailbox at Target in the $1 bin and thought it would be a perfect keeper for little love notes to my husband.  There are so many things he does that I know I don't thank him for and this will be perfect!  I covered the box with a strip of pink card stock and made a little pocket for the right side.  I punched several hearts out of patterned papers that have white backs (perfect for the little note) and tucked them into the pocket.
I finished the box with some chipboard hearts and other decorations and then added a banner to a pipe cleaner which made a perfect little mailbox flag.  I think he will love checking for this kind of mail!  :)

Thanks so much for visiting today we'll see you back tomorrow for another theme day!  Please be sure to check out the other 4 ladies making of this wonderful group of 5 - five for five for five?  :)

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 12!

We made it, friends!  Welcome to the 12th and final day of the final event brought to you by the Inspiration Crew!  A huge thank you to Donna for leading this effort and keeping all of us on track over the past couple of years!  :)

This final card was made using some patterned kraft card stock I layered over a burgundy card base.  I die cut and stamped the pinecones and sprig and finished the card with a greeting sticker and some wooden snowflakes

Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you enjoyed these 12 Days as much as I have!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 11!

Hello friends and welcome to day eleven of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!  We're in the home stretch now - have you been wrapping up your crafty holiday projects?

This is a fun tag where I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of plaid paper and layered that atop a kraft tag (I'm realizing I used a lot of kraft this year!)  I stamped two graduated poinsettias, pieced them, and layered them atop one another.  I adhered the poinsettia onto the tag and gave it a few pearls for the center.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow for our final day!



12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 10!

Hello friends and welcome to day ten of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!

I had a wonderful opportunity to attend a class taught by Anna Corba last week at a local craft store and we made 12 Days of Christmas tags!  I don't have all of them finished yet but thought I'd give you a peek at a few now and share the rest later this month when I get them done.  It was such a fun night crafting with some wonderful women and just getting inky on a "school night" away from the house was a real treat!  A huge thanks to my hubby for agreeing to go solo on bath night!  :)

The bases are tags that were tea-dyed and the little pocket were made of tea-dyed teabags which we simply glued on three sides and attached to the tags.  The stamps were a vintage set Anna had of the 12 days of Christmas and I wish I could have that set!  We embellished the tags with greenery, pieced images, and vintage trims.  It was such a fun project!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 9!

Hello friends and welcome to day nine of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!

You've seen my reindeer tag already and this is the card I ended up making when I stamped the extra reindeer I talked about the other day.  I stamped a striped background stamp onto a sheet of vellum using silver ink and layered in on a kraft card base for a subtle look.  I layered the pieced reindeer on top and gave them some metallic noses.  I finished the card with some twine and a sentiment greeting.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow!
