Sorry this is late.

I had much to do and I am caring for my 1 yo niece! I forgot how much they fill up the day and that you can’t turn your back for a SINGLE second! Thank goodness I have 3 of my own helpers! It has been a while since my own children were that small. I often wonder how I got anything done. I so enjoy having her. She is just the sweetest thing on 2 lil feet.

OK projects for today… need to go and see Tracey’s project! You are sure to be inspired. Also check out her projects from earlier in the week 😀


Words from Tracey:

“Even though I have girls, I do have LOTS of nephews, and I enjoy making things for them as well, though I think I’m naturally inclined towards girl stuff, lol.  Today I have a twist on an old favorite, and something new…”

Now for my project.

A Happy Life


Now that saying says it all doesn’t it?

This is a sentiment that I have personally always wanted. I feel that it is a wonderful “wish” for someone and is perfect for a few occasions such as New Home, Marriage, Wedding Shower, New Baby, even a promotion….any new beginning. So Sentimental © is sure to have something to suit every occasion.

I have a bridal shower to attend in a couple of weeks and knew that was just the sentiment for my card. I am giving a gift card to one the the places that they registered. Since it is a bridal shower I decided that the It’s A Shower © template would make the perfect focal point for my card.


I used one of the tag shapes from the Tag You’re It © Cut File (also available in PDF) and welded it to another tag to create my tag card! That is something that is fun and easy to do. I really love the shape of this too. I resized this one to be about 4 1/2 inches wide (and whatever that converted to tall! LOL! Just click “maintain proportions”). Normally I like to resize by percent to ensure all my pieces are the same scale. For this, since I was doing a card with the same shape it was easy to just use “inches”.

I layered on my Ga Ga for Gingham ©paper and Carousel cardstock layer. I then stamped my flourish from the Fanciful Flourishes ©stamp set. I added liquid pearls to the flower centers. I then got to sewing! I just went around it 3 x’s in a whimsical pattern. Then I stamped my “A Happy Life” sentiment from So Sentimental©.

Now for the umbrella…


I resized my It’s A Shower © Umbrella and all the pieces to 60% the original size. I mentioned when this 3D It’s A Shower © Umbrella was released that it could also be used on cards, so here it my sample!

I created my umbrella from the Fanciful Flourishes © paper in Fortune Teller. Prior to assembling, I added the scallop layer in white. I used my copic markers to lightly color in some of the white in flower pieces on the paper! It was PERFECTION!!! Then I added some liquid pearls to the flower centers. Once dry, I assembled my umbrella template, making my back piece flat, so it would adhered flat on to my tag card.


 I then filled my umbrella with tulle, and some tiny Prima roses I had. Then attached to my tag shaped card base.

I think this looks so stunning! It is perfect for my gift card.

I am wrapping this in a gusset cello bag, and tying with some lavender floss. DONE!


I really loved how this turned out, and think it will be much appreciated. It isn’t your typical card.


To accompany my gift card….I am making the larger 3D version of this template for the actual shower as well. The idea for it is that each guest is filling out a slip of paper with either their marriage wishes for the couple, or marriage advice! Once everyone has thier slipped filled out, I will wrap the tuelle around it (like in the store sample) and they can treaure all the advice for many, many years to come.
