“Rejoice” Festive Candle Card

October 13, 2018

 

Hello Crafty Friends!

‘Tis the season to start on those holiday cards!  I know, I know.  It is “only” October – but if you are anything like me, you have to rush make some last-minute cards right before the holidays.  I seem to do this every year!  However, with the newly-released A Way With Words dies and stamps I can get several beautiful cards produced quickly.  Today’s card can be easily reproduced with festive results.

“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.

Hello Crafty Friends!

Spring is in full swing here in Nova Scotia. The birds are happily tweeting, the squirrels are playing, and my garden flowers are starting to poke up through the soil. Spring is so beautiful! I love this time of year.

The beauty of spring and the promises of summer inspired the card I am sharing today. The card uses the gorgeous Flourished Frame die and You Were Born with Greatness Clear Stamp set from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection.

Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers

March 3, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends!

Isn’t March a wonderful time of year?  The worst of winter months are behind us and thoughts are turning to spring.  My crocus will soon pop their heads through the winter garden beds and cheery flowers of purple or white with yellow pollen will color the gardens.  The images of those happy flowers inspired the flower card I am sharing today.  The focal point of the card front is the lovely calligraphic stamp designed by Suzanne Cannon.

Let Your Heart Guide You

February 3, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends!

Can you believe it is February already?  Time is flying in 2018!  Although time is flying by, I have made sure to take the time to unwind and happily craft away.  It feels great to create as I forget about the snow on the ground and the shorter days.  Coming home when it is dark is not a problem when I think of the bright light on my craft table!

This week I created a card using a stamp from Suzanne Cannon’s Love & Hearts Collection.  What a sweet quote!  Would you like to make a similar card?  Well, grab a cup of warm tea or coffee and enjoy the instructions.

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky”

January 6, 2018

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends.

January is chilly here in Nova Scotia.  After work I quickly walk my puppy, then put some comfy clothes on and spend time in the craft room.  It is a wonderful time of year to be in the craft room and get the creative juices flowing.  Yes, crafting is a happy thing to do on these chilly winter days.

This week I created a card using one of the stamp sets designed by Suzanne Cannon, the Love & Hearts Collection.

The card has shimmer, texture, playfulness and Suzanne’s beautiful calligraphy.

“Sweet Smiles” gift photo with frame

December 9, 2017

Hello Crafty Friends!

We are a week into December and many of us are happily creating or gathering gifts for loved ones on our Christmas list.  This week I completed a sweet gift for my brother-in-law.  He was married in September and the day was wonderful.  He and his new bride were big smiles the entire day.  His two daughters were in the wedding party and they were just as cute-as-a-button.  After the ceremony, I snapped a photo of his two daughters with my other niece and the photo is absolutely adorable!  One of my gifts to him is a frame of the photo.  The frame can be displayed all year (I hope!) and should bring back beautiful memories of the day.
