Jolly and Happy Christmas - 6x6 Mini Album

Hello my friends, I hope you had a great week.

Today I am sharing a  6" x 6" Christmas mini album that I created using the Say Freeze 12" x 12" paper pad from Craft Smith.  I had already created a 9" x 7 1/2" album using the same paper pad and since I had quite a bit of design paper left I wanted to create another album.

For this new album, I used the tutorial from Laura's Craft Zone YouTube channel.  Her instructions are very clear and easy to follow.  I only made very small modifications to the her instructions to create an album that worked with the design paper I used.



Here is the original album along side the new album.

















Below is a list of the supplies I used to create this album.

Grafix - 12 x 12 medium weight natural chipboard
Craft Smith (Michaels) - Say Freeze 12 x 12 design paper
Recollections - 65lb red card stock
Martha Stewart - Rings : Around The Page punches
Hug Snug - black seam binding
Adhesive - 1/4" & 1/2" Scrappy Tape , Nuvo - Deluxe Liquid Adhesive
Ribbon from my stash

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my newest creation.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Kathy

Hello - TYIC #87 (Spring Colours)

I am back again with another tag I created for the Spring Colours challenge at Tag You're It.


This time I created a bigger tag that I could decorate with a bunch of flowers.  The colours of the flowers and leaves were inspired by the above inspiration photo.  I did some ink blending and spraying starburst sprays onto some 110lb white card stock, to create the four colours.  The hello die was cut fours times out of some 110lb black card stock , which I glued on top of each other to create a bolder sentiment.  I'm not totally sure I'm happy with the plain white background for the flowers but I do like the overall colours.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Dies: MFT Stamps - Stitched Blooms, Hello
Inks: Distress Inks - Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, Mowed Lawn
Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays - Blue Hawaiian Blue, Witch's Potion Purple, Hottie Patottie Hot Pink
Other: Recollections - 110lb White and Black card stocks,  Offray - 5/8" Purple Ribbon,  American Crafts - White Hemp Cord

So Lucky - TYIC #87 (Spring Colours)

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a good day so far.  I am back today to share a tag I created for the challenge at Tag You're It!


The tag I created is quite small compared to what I normally make for this challenge, but I think it tuned out simple and sweet.

Tah tag elements come from the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 from MFT Stamps and the cute fairy and flowers come from the Fairy Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  It was a bit of a challenge to find a sentiment that would fit on the banner but I did find one in the From The Heart stamp set from MFT Stamps.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends,  MFT Stamps - From The Heart
Dies: MFT Stamps - Tag Builder Blueprints 5,  Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Hero Arts - Teal
Copic Markers: Skin - E00, E11, E13, R20  Hair - E50, E53  Wings - BG10, BG13  Dress & Flowers - V12, V15, V17  Stem - YG03, YG21
Other: Recollections - 110lb White and Turquoise card stocks,  Sprcteum Noir - Crystal Clear Sparkling Brush Pen,  Jillibean Soup - Twine,  Foam Tape

Thank you so much for dropping by and I shop you have a great day! Kathy

Have A Blast - MFTWSC436

Hello my friends, I am back to share a card I created for the current sketch challenge at MFT Stamps.


I used the Birdie Brown - Space Explorer stamp set along with a "galaxy" background that I created quite awhile ago but had never used.  I created the galaxy panels by cutting them with the largest die in the Fishtail Flag Stax from MFT Stamps and matting them with some black card stock.  The sentiment fit perfectly in between the fishtail panels.  I added the astronaut with some foam tape and as the finishing touch I glued on some tiny star confetti from my stash.




Below is a list of the supplies I used on my card.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Birdie Brown-Space Explorer
Dies: MFT Stamps - Fishtail Flag Stax
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Distress Inks - Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Black Soot

Brimming With Happiness - Caffeinated Inspiration-Spring Tea

Hello my friends and Happy Saturday!  Today I am back to share a card I created for the inspiration challenge at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers.


I was inspired by the colours in the above picture and the layout was inspired by the inspiration card by Laurel Seabrook.  (Love her card).



I decided to dry emboss my background panel using the Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  I think it gives some nice texture and looks romantic.  I also used some delicate floral design paper for the tea bag as well as the sentiment strip.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Cup of Tea,  Wplus9 - Free-Hand Florals
Dies: MFT Stamps - Tea Party and Slanted Sentiment Strips,  Wplus9 - Free-Hand Florals
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black,  Hero Arts - Soft Pink, Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink, Lime Green
Other: Recollections - 110lb White and Pink card stocks,  Memory Box - Pixie 6x6 paper collection,  Cuttlebug - Script Embossing Folder,  White Sewing Thread and Silver card stock from my stash
