Quick & Easy Card Layout!


This is a quick and simple layout that you could use with basically any shapes!! Substitute a stamped image instead of the red circle or use flowers instead of stars. When you need something quick, this card can be made in less than 15 minutes! 
I used wax paper as a dauber to ink my banner. Pop dots or dimensionals add a quick area of dimension on your card. 
I would love to see how you take this basic layout and make it your own!

Basic Grey Papers and Heartfelt Creations Flowers


People who know me know how much I LOVE Basic Grey papers. It's been about a year since they announced that were no longer going to make papers. I'm still sad about it and tend to hoard the papers I do have for something very special!

I love this bold paisley pattern and then flowers dies by Heartfelt Creations just make this page come to life!

Color Burst Cards

I recently participated in a card swap at Picture This in which we had to use embossing folders. 
I started out by spritzing my cardstock with water and adding the color burst powders. 
Then spritzing with more water until I got the look I wanted. 


I let the pieces dry overnight. Then I ran them through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder by Taylored Expressions. 


I layered the cards with other embossed elements and finished off my card. 


Here are my 10 finished cards for the swap.

2 Page Flower Layout

I found this super cute paper on the sales floor at work but there was only 2 pieces left so I created this layout. I decided to make my own flowers that matched these pages.






The flowers were made by cutting out various sized circle dies out of coordinating papers. Then I used the Tim Holtz Distressing tool and roughed up the edges. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I used my stylus and to add dimension to the flowers and then attached them all together off center with a large brad. I thought they looked similar to the flowers on the background. 

I finished the set of pages off with a custom cut title of 'Memories'. Something simple to go with the simplicity of the pages.
