What’s on the Menu?!

August 4, 2018

Hi there!  It’s Suzanne here today with some fun and easy projects for the next time you have a dinner party or special dinner event – perhaps even a wedding!

It’s a wonderful touch to leave a copy of the menu at each place setting or to display a single copy in the middle of the table. Create a  tent-fold card with the word Menu die cut for the front and the list of food on the back or inside. So many possibilities!

The look can be rustic or elegant. I love the contrast between the kraft paper and the elegant white lettering, and with a single rose and pastel colors the look is totally different. The color combo is up to you!

Happy Birthday in Pinks and Grays

February 24, 2018

 

Hi Artlings!  It’s Suzanne here today with a delicate birthday card.  We always need birthday cards!  Here’s one that’s a little different.  By die cutting the Flourished Frame and inlaying all the pieces back in, we can create a more subtle frame that doesn’t overpower the pink and gray.  Layer the elements to create more interest and you’ll be creating something really special for someone special!

Here is how you can make it –

Always and Forever

February 10, 2018

 

Hi there, Artlings!  It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever.  This is perfect for a guy for Valentine’s Day, but by changing the colour of the gently sponged ink, you can pink it right up!  By adding dimension to each layer, the result is a super special card for a super special person. Wouldn’t this make a stunning wedding or anniversary card?

This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it.  And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!

Here is how you can make this card!

Perfect Winter Birthday

December 30, 2017

 

Hi there!  It’s Suzanne here today as 2017 comes to an end.  I hope it’s been a good year for you and you’re looking forward to an even better 2018!  I plan to get out my art supplies more in 2018.  I spend a lot of time at the computer and even if I’m being creative, it just isn’t the same as cutting and gluing and inking!  What about you?  Do you have plans to do more in 2018?  Perhaps learn something new?

I’m here today with a quick and easy card for someone with a winter birthday!  There are lots of winter babies out there who need cards!  It’s a great example of how you can mix and match dies from the A Way With Words collection and it’s super easy!

Here is how to make it:
