Two blog posts in one week!  OMG!  I'm on a roll...but don't get used to it, I don't know how long I'll be able to keep this streak going.  This is a card I made for re:Discover that can be used for a wedding or baby shower/arrival.  I love the delicate colors!  I cut out the flower from a large sheet of paper...I don't remember which line it came from.  I made the same exact card for my cousin Dana for her Bridal shower this past weekend.  In place of the "Congratulations" sentiment I stamped "Bridal Shower" instead.

Catchin' Up

Okay, I know it's disgusting how long it's been since I updated my blog but life has been crazy lately, leaving me with little time to craft.  Last week I finally had some down time to create and it felt so great to pull out my supplies again.  This is a birthday card I created for my sister.  I was inspired by a similar card I saw in Paper Crafts magazine so I recreated it.  I loved the color combo and after staring at it a while I decided I loved it so much that I'd make the same one for my sister-in-law and one to sell at re:Discover!  I also decided to stage it with this vase I purchased from Anthropologie a while ago.  I didn't come up with this clever idea, it was actually staged like this in Paper Crafts Magazine too which is why it really caught my eye.  Enjoy!

Twistin' #107

Here is my take on this week's sketch over at Twisted Sketches.  The twist today is chipboard.  As you can see, I used chipboard letters to spell out "mom"! I love love this color combination together!  I used some fun lacy elastic ribbon to give it a more feminine feel. Head over to Twisted to try it out for yourself!

Here's a quick card I put together for my sister-in-law for her birthday.  I saw a similar card layout on Maile Belles blog (I loooooove her cards) and couldn't resist using the same layout.  This stamp set was one that I found a while ago at Joann's and it has all kinds of sweet treats to choose from, I've never used it before.  I colored the cupcakes with my copics and then added some rhinestones as sprinkles on the bottom one.  It's a fun and feminine birthday card that was easy to put together.  I will definitely be using this layout again!

 This week's Twisted Sketch was flower!  I love flowers, they make me so very happy.  I created this baby card using a button from the Sassafras line by October Afternoon.  As you can see, the button has a flower center.  Check out this week's Twisted Sketch and try your own take on this fun challenge!

Catchin' Up

Oh my poor blog!  I miss you.  I haven't posted in a while due to a hectic work and social schedule, but I hope I am able to update more frequently because I miss my craft supplies.  I figured I would share a custom order that I have been working on for the last couple months.  I was hired by azure photography to create packaging for their wedding albums that are given to the bride.  The wonderful thing about azure is that Christie (the owner & operator) is really focused on creating a beautiful package for the happy couple.  She includes a bottle of wine and several sized albums in her delivery of the final product.  As a result, I have made wine bottle tags, to/from tags for the albums and a logo tag for her to use on the top of the box.  Here are some photos of the items that I have put together for azure!

Twistin' #97

I can't believe it has been one month since my last post!  I am slacckkkinnngggg!  Anywho, here is my take on Twisted Sketches #97 with the twist of "yellow".  I really loved this sketch for its clean & simple layout.  I used a star border that I got for free at my LSS and just added some stickles to it.  Who doesn't love stickles?
You should head over to Twisted Sketches and try it for yourself!
