Clean Up on Aisle 3 or Hello, Card

Where are my fellow introverts at? Shout-out for seeing someone you know on Aisle 3 and quickly appraising the situation - will they see you if you quietly sneak down the aisle to get coffee? Your calculations point to 'yes' so you divert to Aisle 4 and pretend to be very enthusiastic about dill pickles while you wait for Aisle 3 to be clear of hazards. 

'Clean up on Aisle 3 - it's littered with dispassionate, uninteresting small talk and forced smiles.'

Cheers to you, Mrs. Robinson...

When I was reviewing the photos of this card, one thing kept repeating in my mind, "Cheers to you, Mrs. Robinson, Jesus loves you more than you can know.... hey hey hey." But let's skip the reminiscing and get right to some card making. 

Hip-Hip, Yay! Embossed Card

I made a batch of cards and tags a while back with the focus of using some awesome embossing folders. The embossed patterns really steal the show!

Halloween-Inspired Gift Tags

Halloween is just around the corner. If you gift little treats to co-workers, friends, classmates, etc, how about adding a fancy-schmancy Halloween (ish) gift tag? Even if you're not into Halloween, I think you might find some inspiration in these pretty paper supplies!


Card Making: You Are Amazing (with free printable and cutting file!)

Wow, I really do have a 'type.' A layout type, that is. I'm naturally drawn to this layout and I make it without thinking. Next time, I'll mix it up, promise!
I love this background paper - Basic Grey paper from the Capture line. I also love the 'You are amazing' embellishment that I created in the Silhouette Studio software. 

I love this embellishment so much that I am going to give it to you for free! Yay! If you don't have a Silhouette cutting machine, you can still download the pdf and cut them out by hand. 

Mini Wooden Circle Memory Album

This project combines so many of my loves- paper crafting, mixed media, and mini scrapbook albums. 
This wooden circle scrapbook pocket album uses pre-cut wooden circles as the base for a creative take on a traditional album. The best part? It uses up lots of your little scrap papers and bits!

Card Making: Sketchy Circles (Five Layouts)

I decided to make five cards for co-workers who are moving to a new, less-than-desirable building. I wanted to make each one a unique layout but keep a theme. I recently cut several sketchy circles with my Silhouette Cameo so they made the perfect 'theme.' You can get the free file for the sketchy circles here.

Card 1 Supplies: Kraft card, sketchy circles, handmade mixed media background on white card stock, washi tape, enamel dots, scraps of paper, a couple of stickers
Card 2 Supplies: Kraft card, sketchy circles, printed paper, vellum, brad, hello stamp, washi tape, enamel dots, shapes cut from my Silhouette Cameo, scraps of paper

Card 3 Supplies: Kraft card, printed card stock, sketchy circles, butterfly and hello cut from Silhouette Cameo, pennant/flag craft punch with mixed media paper, pom pom ribbon, enamel dots, washi tape


 Card 4 Supplies: Kraft card, mixed media background, washi tape, hello stamp, Tim Holtz tiny attacher, pom pom ribbon, scraps of paper
Card 5 Supplies: Kraft card, mixed media background paper, shapes cut with Silhouette Cameo, sketchy circles, washi tape, enamel dots, scraps of paper, 

So, you can see that I basically used the same supplies for each card so they definitely match but each one is very unique due to the colors and layouts. Isn't it cool how that works out?

Are you working on any crafts with a theme?
