I hope you take the time to click and play this-its really cool.

I swear I get sucked into more crazy things on SCS than you could imagine-unless YOU do too! I made this in a matter of a few minutes!  I loved doing this as oppose to scrapping! I decided to keep it and paid $1.99 for it, so I could print it and post it on my blog to share with you. I can then do whatever I want with it. Like send it to the family I dont really get to see.

I was on SCS and saw the Smilebox ad. Clicked and away I went. Im wicked computer challenged but it was SO easy! If “I” can do it, anyone can.

I think its a cool thing. I took some of my favorite photos from this year (except our first family photo, I liked seeing the growth) and added it to here. Now I just wanna go make a ton of them! Its a great source to document stuff for people who dont have alot of time but want to perserve memories.

Let me know what you think! Makes me all weepy.

My life has really gotten to be amazing! I made this as a reminder of how beautiful my family is. From one year to the next they change and grow so much. I feel so blessed to even have children. God has really shown me how precious time and family is.

If you make one Id LOVE to see it! This was such a cool thing for me to do since I am NOT (nor will I ever be) a scrapbooker. I just love cards-cant get into the other stuff. And ya know what? THATS OK!

Im sure I will be doing alot of these. Think of the easy Christmas books you can make! They have all sorts of stuff.

Enjoy the day! Now if only I could get this into a banner ad-that would be real cool!

What you need to know! READ IT AND THANK ME LATER :D

A Quintuplets of wishes

All the cards you are seeing here are done with the Gina K Make A Wish set.

I am so excited about this set (obviously I have made tons with it) because not only is it great for any style, and occasion but $7 for EACH set goes to the Make A Wish Foundation. How amazing is it that by purchasing an item to create great hand stamped items, for sale, family, or friends that YOU can make a difference at the same time.

Anyone who knows “me” will know that this is an organization close to my heart, as my family has personally benefited from this organization.

On my blog you will see Alexa’s Story and her Make A wish page. Feel free to read it at your liesure, and put a FACE to the cause.

This card is my favorite with this flower so far.

maw butterfly Birthday Wishes

I love the colors and softness this has. I was going for simple elegance with this one, and anytime I can incorporate butterflies you know I will.

Thanks to lacyquilter ( a behind the scenes enabler) I have a beautiful butterfly  set arriving (SOON I HOPE) from Hero Arts Let me share with you, what she shared with me! Thank you!!! I cant wait to get them.

Many of you asked HOW I emboss vellum. Well the bottom of this card, is vellum cardstock. I run it through my cuttlebug (thestylized embossing folder) and DONE! Vellum CARDSTOCK is heavier than vellum PAPER so make sure you use the right thing. I get mine from Stampin’Up! The ribbon is from Michaels craft store.

I used a brilliance ink for this one-Crimson. The stems is aversamagic ink in Pesto. I use the versamagic ink ALOT! I love the coverage and look. I have and use lots of ink, but I think I turn to these the most.

I used some liquid applique for the dots. I thought it was similar to the actual flower.

The butterflies are my Martha Stewart punches. I just color the centers with a Copic marker, and then punch from the vellum cardstock.

The swirl is an Onare piercing template that I ahve yet to find available any longer! Its so sad cause I LOVE mine!!!!

Flower of Joy

wishing you  This one uses some patterned paper by Chatterbox I have hoarded for like 2 years! I dont even know what the name is any more. I felt the flower matched the white bloom in the paper.

So I had to make another with the paper

Garden Flowers

garden flowers These were stamped on the scalloped circle. I used a scrap acetate circle to overlay them. I LOVE that idea I had a while ago from THIScard. Got some use from my Photo Corner punch by SU! I will say its pretty cool!

 Comfort and Peace

comfort and peace Here is another card I thought Id share. What I LOVE about this one, is the the flowers were stamped on a pale pink cardstock by Martha Stewart. I then applied a vellum overlay where I stamped the flower again (using the crimson ink) to make it POP against the others. I think its such a pretty sympathy card. I LOVE vellum cardstock!

Last but not least

Peaceful wishes

maw wishful peace I have NO IDEA why this one is blurry. Maybe too much coffee!

All I did was punch a scalloped circle in some scrap cardstock. Used a dauber to add some saffron to the card base. I then stamped my flowers! For the center flower the bud was done with the Glue Pad, and then sprinkled with my MS glitter.

Quick, soft and simple.

I hope you enjoyed. Stay tuned tomorrow where I will share MORE! Yes MORE with this set! I went nuts when I got it. Plus my hope is to share some various styles and looks, the one set gives, in hope that you will consider adding it to your collection.

I also have a tutorial that is going to be shared VERY soon, for a idea I designed. You wont want to miss that let me tell you!

Thanks for sharing the love! 😀 Off to stamp!
