Christmas and Winter Theme Cards #1

Dream Big!

Happy New Year Cards

The polka dot paper has a sticky back! I came across the paper in a 3-pack of coordinated prints at a discount dollar store! What a fabulous frugal find!!! The black lace tape was also purchased at the same discount dollar store!

 Studio G produced the stamp of "dream big" and the base square white card and envelope.

Foam snowflakes were purchased many years ago from OTC. They came in a huge volume pack in different shades of blue plus white, pink, and lavendar.

The stencil number ruler has been in my "arsenal" for many years.

ATC style scrapbook page is personalized

RJS and EJS trading cards type scrapbook album page made on 1/7/2015. Yesterday was a snow day for me so I took time for my creative therapy (yes that's what I call it) and created these ATC (artist trading cards) with a winter theme and 2 of my favorite colors--purple and pink.

My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate 19 years of marriage, so even though it doesn't necessarily look lovey-dovey, it was made with loving intentions!

My husband and I share the same middle initial. That made how to create a layout for this style album page very easy for me.

Masculine birthday card #3 of 3

Husband's card on inside--simple but I like better than the cover?!?!!!

Hard to imagine but it happens from time to time. The cover and inside ended up competing for too much visual attention. I have to remember if I have a visually busy cover then I need to have a simple inside. Maybe this should be my craft resolution for the new year!!!!!

Wedding cards: # 1 of 3 made for friends

Friends of mine had 3 of their 4 adult children marry within a timespan of 1.5 years!

Wedding card #1:

clever uses of ordinary supplies--tulle that has been inked in order to coordinate with the colors and contrast against the doily

Card #3 of 3 made in 30 minutes from start to finish

I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how this quick-to-make card is so charming and light-hearted. It is for our pastor.

The card was easy to put together for these reasons:
a. the birthday candles were already wrapped with the baker's twine (was going to use several weeks ago and changed mind--now am glad because the color mix goes so perfectly with the pre-printed card)
b. the multiple print happy birthday patterned paper is actually a 3-inch section cut from a pre-printed card purchased from Hot Off the Press (Paper Wishes website or catalog to purchase)
c. the scalloped circle opening in the card base was purchased that way from Studio G (purchased at Wal-Mart)
d. stenciled number ruler and 'congratulations' wood stamp made the other decorative touches easy

Wa-hoo for cute, charming, and easy to create!!!
