Botanical Birthday

Happy Hump day, we are half way to the weekend!  Today my friend is celebrating her “BIG” birthday and next Saturday is her luau themed party.  So I am kicking off the celebration with a fun fold called Card in a Box.  It’s been a while since I made one of these cards and I had forgotten how much fun these are!

I did use a few retired elements on this project – Botanical Builder and Large Numbers Framelits Dies.

Country Home Hello – Card Swap

Welcome back to a new week, friends, I hope your weekend was grand! Last month, I participated in my demonstrator group’s “Pre-Order Holiday Catalog Card Swap”.

Over the course of five weeks, I am going to be sharing with you the swap cards that I received back.  Today I will kick it off with my swap that I made. My card is CASED from page 42 of the Holiday Catalog featuring the Country Lane Suite found on pages 42-43 of the Holiday Catalog. I kicked it up a few notches by adding a Crumb Cake cardstock base, Galvanized Clip, and the 3/16″ Braided Linen Thread.

All The Good Things Shoebox Swap

Happiest of Fridays, friends!  This stunning card was created by Joyce Boylan for our recent demonstrator meeting.  OMG, she is always creating such artistic cards and this one has to be one of my favorites of all time!!  I am thrilled to have finally tried out not only the new Distinktive stamps but the Stamaratus!

Home Decor with an Interchangeable “O”

Hello friends!  I have a very fun project that begins with a 5″ x 7″ frame.  I have seen this project made on various sites and thought I’d give it a try.  I will be honest with you that while it was time consuming (I made several), it is also highly addictive!!  Each interchangeable “O” has a magnet on the back as well as on the Thick Whisper White 5″ x 7″ cardstock.

This was a going away gift that I made for a good friend that is moving away…boo!!!  I have a feeling that she is going to love it!


Take a closer look at the Mini Pizza Box. I absolutely love the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the Make a Difference Stamp Set!

Wanna see what’s inside?

Here are all of the interchangeable “O”‘s that I made.  Many of these were inspired by Lynn Strifert ~ thanks Lynn!
