For today's sneak peek I've created a a fun little birthday card using the NEW Bear Frog Card dies dies. This die is great for making a bear or frog shaped card... but you can also use it to make a gift card holder! 
I will also be creating a video to share how to make the next card, which is an interactive card. It's a LIZARD!!!!!!!!! Well it started out as a frog- I wanted to make a frog that was orange... but it ended up looking more like a lizard 😊 This is just a sneak... so be sure to stop back by for the full tutorial and video!

Paper Smooches challenge- February #4

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm sharing my 4th project for the Paper Smooches "LOVE" challenge for the month of February. Making a card about love or with hearts... SUPER EASY! 
Picture: Credit HERE 

I was inspired by a mug cozy by Starbucks- I think! I'm not sure what it is called or if was Starbucks😜 This is a mini card measuring 3 x 3.25 inches! That was a challenge for me since I like bigger sized projects but smaller than a 12x12 page! LOL! 

I used some Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm papers along with these PS stamps/dies: Hearts, Cyber Cafe, and Winter Sampler dies. 

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:)

Paper Smooches challenge- February #3

Hello, friends:}
Today I'm sharing my 3rd project for the Paper Smooches "LOVE" challenge for the month of February
Picture: Credit HERE 

I saw the PS Smooches stamps and dies and had to create a fun card that would be perfect for just about anyone! The papers are from the Project Life Becky Higgins Coral edition- I like to use the journaling cards as the background and then add other elements die cut from the smaller journaling cards to complete my project. That way everything matches😊 I was inspired by THIS layout. Other PS supplies include: Hearts, Tiny HeartsLove & Cherish, and Foliage 3 dies. 

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:)

Paper Smooches challenge- February #2

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm sharing another project for the Paper Smooches "LOVE" challenge for the month of February
Picture: Credit HERE 

Following the "love" theme for February is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy! You can add hearts that are die cut or with patterned paper (I did both)... you can make an anniversary or love card (I made a valentine)... you can add red or pink on your card... you can use the word "love" with a stamp, die cut, or with paper... it's really easy

I thought this little valentine saying was too cute... so I had to use my PS halloween stamps/dies to create my own version! I also used some Fancy Pants Designs True Friend papers- I thought that it was perfect for a masculine card and a girl ghost (I put salmon colored ink on her cheeks to make them "rosey"! LOL!). Other PS supplies include: Spookalicious, Spookalicious IconsHeartsUpllifters, and Halloween Icons dies. The technique I used for the "boo" die cut is partial die cutting- you can kind of see a mistake I made because my hammer hit where it shouldn't have and cut the paper a bit! LOL! I was trying to not die cut the exclamation point on the die image. This is just proof that my projects are not always 100% perfect! 😜

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:)
