It’s Karen here. Valentine’s Day is next week – a day of love! Elizabeth Craft Designs has many wonderful products for Valentine’s Day (and every day). Be sure to check them all out! My card today will be sent to my parents who are away for the winter in a warm and sunny place. Sending love is fun…
It’s Karen here. One of my good friends recently had a birthday. I wanted to make her something. What’s better this time of year than a new calendar!? Using coasters as a base, I created this fun desk calendar for her! She is into butterflies and loves the idea of transformation, so transforming bar coasters into a cute butterfly calendar is, I hope, the perfect gift. The paper I chose is the 12 x 12 ModaScrap Fly & Scrap collection. It’s simply beautiful!
It’s Karen here. A couple of weeks ago the designers were challenged to make pop-up cards using the General Pop-Ups die set. I remember making my first pop-up with all the crazy measuring, scoring and folding. Now, with this die set, it is SO easy! I was inspired to make a Z-fold card by my good friend Sharon and decided to include a pop-up.
It’s Karen here. I’m obsessed with the fashion stamps available at Elizabeth Craft Designs and wanted to make a holiday card using them. I combined a couple of stamp sets to create a holiday-inspired dress to embellish my card today!
It’s Karen here. I’m excited to be showing a Christmas card I made today. As we get closer to the holidays, my Christmas cards tend to go to traditional colors, but while it’s still hot outside (like now), I make them with very non-traditional colors and papers. Do you have a preference? I like them both ways!
It’s Karen here with a Christmas card! I absolutely love Christmas and making cards for the season. I send out about 150 each year, so basically, I make them all year around. If you haven’t started, I hope this post inspires you to do so. It’s only about 3.5 months until Christmas! Yay!
It’s Karen here with a card I made for a co-worker. This person plans events for the division in which I work and doesn’t seem to get much appreciation for what she does. She planned and organized an event for my unit and I wanted to thank her in a special way. Using the FuN and new Blossom Time stamp set and Butterfly Dream paper, I made her a pretty card and tucked a gift card inside. I hope she likes it!
It’s Karen here! I’m getting ready to move. I’m not terribly excited about it, so much work, but I am excited about having a reason to create special cards to express gratitude for those who help me. Today’s card project is created for my son who LoVeS Starbucks. He has been with me every step of the way and SO helpful. Using the Sliders and Spinners die set, I designed a card with a special surprise that slides up.
Happy Friday! It’s Karen here with a fun birthday card I made for the son of one of my friends. Boy cards are tough for me, but I think the combination of the Color of Puppies and Boy papers along with the Zoo Babies stamps was perfect. In my post today, I’ll give you a little tip on dealing with smaller pieces of scrap paper, too.
It’s Karen here with a fun Bird-Day Party card. I’m obsessed with these FuN birds from Elizabeth Craft Designs and also love cards that have fun folds to them. My crafty mentor is so good at them, and I’m using one of her folds today. I’m combining the fun folds and a fabulous bird for a card I made for my son who just turned 24. The paper is called Manly Man and it is NEW!
