Cards and Papercrafts

My cup runneth over lol. 

I've been asked by a few people if I would sell my cards and so I have decided to jump on the Etsy bandwagon for now lol.

Please view and share my "shop" with friends and family and facebook.  I have only put a few cards up for now to "test the waters" so-to-speak. 

If there are any designs past or present that you might be interested in, please feel free to contact me through Etsy or my blog and help me make room for more creations.

Thank you.

Masked Ladies

So, I went to Angels Hearts and Memories and... the "New Year's" digi set called to me.  Those gowns and masks are just so elegant.  But with New Year's over what to do?  Hmmmm.

Ya gotta think outside the box.  Think Valentine, love, birthday (maybe a little coquettish?), Sweet 16, Debutante (does anyone do that anymore?), Mardi Gras... you're only limited by your imagination.

So here's my make, a spinner/turning/viewmaster-style card.  Perfect for your BFF's birthday, or sweetheart's birthday (or a "just 'cause" card) or even to send to a little girl for a special birthday as they'd just have fun spinning the wheel and seeing what look the main cutie on the front would care to wear?

Just have fun with it like I did.  You can still pick up this set here.

ENABLER ALERT lol -->  While you're at the Angels Hearts and Memories site, why not check out the other sets still available and snap 'em up while you can?  I featured the Valentine bundle (think birthdays and more too) back in January here.  And of course the Birthday bundle yesterday.  And the Christmas/Winter and Halloween bundles are still available.

Happy Birthday!

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink ;-).

I'm so excited to show you one of the new releases at Angels Hearts and Memories.

These new cuties are Birthday-themed but with a change of paper and a little artistic license, I can see 'em as Valentine, Love, Christmas (Birthday Gifts Gloria would be perfect), your best friend's birthday...

So, without further ado, I present Birthday Cake Katie!  You can get your own at Angels Hearts and Memories... but you're going to want the whole bundle!  And while you're there, make sure you check out the other exclusives if you've not been there before.

Eyes - E33-29
Hair - E33-35-57
Shirt - RV34-17-19

Don't forget to peek inside the "faux card" to see Birthday Banner Angela!

Edited: Oh, and scroll down a bit further as I've added the three other girls (and if you look closely, you can see one of 'em is... shhhhh... Christmas!  If you'd like more pics or colours, leave a comment and I'll make a new blogpost with them - My Birthday Banner Angela (lying flat in the photo with the other three cards) is a slider card... ya might want to see "more" of her; if ya know what I mean ;-).

Please don't hate me...

For enabling you!

Well the New Year has started off with more creative play and paper engineering.  Brenda has done it again.  First with the large Hersheys Heart that I featured earlier on my blog.  Perfect "box of chocolates" for your sweetheart on Valentine's Day!

And now... may I introduce Mamma Duck and her Ducklings?!  Oh I can just picture a flock/badelynge/bunch/brace/paddling/raft/team/dover or... brood? (yes, apparently all these words describe a "group of ducks" - who woulda thunk it lol) "littering" the table at Easter.  You wouldn't need anymore table decor ('cept the food of course).  And why limit it to Easter?!  I can see these at a Baby Shower too (especially with the addition of one or more of the cute sheep/lambs from the Hershey Kiss Nativity [wink - gee, did I say "enabler alert" lol?].

These make up really fast (especially if you use Brenda's "Timesaver" measurements and cutting instructions at the end of every tutorial) and you'll have a smile on your face the whole time.

I've used Stampin' Up's Thick Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Cardstock with retired Calypso Coral and Pool Party ribbon.

You can find yours here -->
