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!

“Make a Wish Before The Place Burns Down” Birthday Card

July 21, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends!

This is the heart of birthday season for me.  Many of my friends and family have a birthday between now and the end of September.  I went through my birthday card stash last week and realized that I need to make several more.  Oh darn!  I guess that means more time in my craft room.  🙂

Today I am sharing two birthday cards created using the same instructions, stamps and dies.  The focal point of each card front is the funny quote from the Happy Birthday Collection stamp set by Suzanne Cannon: “Blow out the candles…”.  The instructions below list the products I used.

CAS Miss You with Coreopsis Flower

July 14, 2018

Hi!  It’s Diana here today to share with you another clean and simple card I made with the Miss You die by A Way With Words and my latest acquisition of Susan’s Garden dies: the Coreopsis.  I don’t know about you but every flower evokes a different feeling or memory.  Roses make me think of my mom, red roses and white daisies make me think of my husband, and today’s flower, the coreopsis makes me think of my childhood.  When I was 6, I had a birthday party and two of my dear cousins brought me a bouquet of the lance-leaf coreopsis.  They are the very first flowers I received and though I’m pretty sure now that they were wildflowers picked in some field, I love them the same!  Flowers are flowers.

But back to my card, this is another one that I think can be easily modified to suit you and would work with any of the many flower dies Elizabeth Craft Design carries.  The Way With Word dies work beautifully with them.  Read on for the instructions:

Planner Books

June 30, 2018

 by Judi Kauffman

Planning a wedding or other big event? Need to keep track of invitations sent and RSVPs received, the menu and other aspects of the special event? Give some inexpensive composition books a facelift and you can do it in style!

To customize the books for use as a journal instead of a planner, incorporate the word ‘Courage’ or ‘Memories’ or ‘Faith’ or ‘Make a Wish’ instead. And ‘Special Day’ remains a good choice for journals as well as planner books. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection has so many wonderful options.

Come join me –

Welcome Board

June 16, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

If you’re a fan of chalkboards, this project is for you! Choose a board that hangs on the wall or go for one that’s easel-backed and can stand on its own. Decorate a rectangle with a sentiment and some embellishments to put at an angle at the upper left corner and you’re done…

I chose to make a chalkboard that welcomes guests and reminds them of the day’s activities, as well as answering the most-asked question (“What’s your wifi password?”), but there are many ways to change and customize the project: Instead of hearts, add stars or butterflies or flowers.

Clean and Simple Pet Sympathy Card

June 9, 2018

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest cards for me to make.  And ones for our beloved pets are just as difficult!  I don’t know about you but I struggle with the right level of “fussiness” on a card for such a difficult time.  So as always, when in doubt, I go for clean and simple.  The Paws and Hearts die (it was available as a stencil before) added just the right amount of detail below.  It made me think of how their paw prints make a lasting impression on our hearts.  Read on to find how I made this pet sympathy card.
