My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Week- Stitched Petals

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 67th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day three of peeks, and Emma is showcasing two new sets, this month’s freebie die and a new set of basic shapes that you are going to love.


This shabby vintage-inspired card features the new Scalloped Stitched Square dies…. so useful for creating stacked layers like you see here…. and this month’s adorable freebie die, called Stitched Petals.


I used four of the new scalloped dies to create my focal panel here, and love the layered look that this gives. But what I love about them the most is that there are many more nesting dies that come with this set, from larger card base sizes down to the smallest shapes that I used here. I die cut the freebie Stitched Petals die onto the smallest stitched square shape, and pulled up on the petals for a bit of dimension. Embellished the center of the flower with a button and sticker for a little extra detail. The papers and stickers are from Photo Play Paper’s French Flea Market collection.

My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Week- Sea You Soon

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 67th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day two of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new stamp and die set called Sea You Soon.


This new set has some of the cutest little sea creatures you have ever seen, and a great variety of sweet and puny sentiments to go along. I made an ocean scene for my turtle and his fish friends, complete with embossed sea waves from the Sea You Soon set, water-colored with a variety of Distress inks. The images were stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with the inks, too, before being die cut with the matching dies and popped onto the card base with foam adhesive.


I stamped one of the sentiments from the set directly onto the panel, and then die cut with the previously released Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set. The outer frame was die cut with the rectangle die set, as well. The papers are from Photo Play Paper’s Nautical Bliss line.

My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Week- The Adventure Begins

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 67th Edition Release, and I am excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day one of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new stamp and die set called The Adventure Begins.


This month is a very special release, for not only is June Emma’s birthday, this month also marks the 6th anniversary of My Creative Time. Today’s sneak peek set seems perfectly fitting for the occasion as it represents moving forward, taking a journey, and enjoying life’s precious moments….
Which I hope we all do for many years to come! Happy birthday Emma and My Creative Time!


For today’s card, I turned to a couple of my favorite previously released MCT die sets to create a little setting for this adorable scooter. Stitched Squares Inside & Out dies were used on both the frame and focal panel. Then I used Fun Stitched Clouds die cuts as masks for an ink blended cloudy sky background in soft green and blue. The present and scooter were stamped onto watercolor paper, colored with Zig Clean Color markers, and paper pieced with a bit of matching patterned paper.  I die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and popped them onto the frame using foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.


I stamped one of the set’s sentiments onto a banner strip for the front of the card, and added a second greeting to the inside along with another pair of sweet paper pieced packages. The patterned paper is from the adorable Fresh Picked collection by Photo Play Paper.

Amazing Mom with Photo Play Paper

Recently Photo Play Paper asked me to go back into the archives to create a couple of Mother’s Day cards featuring one of their very first collections ever, Family Ties. Last week I shared the first card with gift card holder (click here for that post), and today I’m happy to be here with the second.


Family Ties was really a bit of a unique collection in that it included papers, journaling cards, and stickers for all the different family members. And of course since this is a Mother’s Day card, I used a mix of the girly elements here.


Love this beautiful Mother journaling card, and it sure makes card designs easy. A few layers of patterned papers, with foam adhesive between for dimension, and some beautiful rose cardstock stickers. I cut a bit of paper for photo corners. Finished off with enamel dots, too.


I love the navy in this collection. That mixed with orange is one of my all-time favorite color combos. A reminder that summer is on its way.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Linked Together with Photo Play Paper

Hello Crafty Friends!
Happy Monday. Hope your week is off to a great start!


Today I have another freebie project to share that I made for Photo Play Paper. If you’re already on Photo Play’s mailing list, you may have seen the instructions for this card on Friday. It’s a Mother’s Day card and gift card holder all in one, made with one of their very first collections, Family Ties.


Besides being one of Photo Play’s very first paper lines, Family Ties is a really neat collection, as there are individual sheets for all your different family members…. brothers and sisters, grandparents, dad, and of course, the mom papers and stickers that I used here.


This card is a 5×5 square, with a pocket on the front for the gift card insert, and lots of room on the inside for handwritten messages. The gift card itself is inserted with just a couple of small slits to hold it in place. Super easy to do for any occasion.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

It’s a Good Day with Photo Play Paper

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!


If you have signed up for Photo Play Paper’s mailing list, you may have seen a set of freebies they sent out recently with two different printables for their adorable French Flea Market collection. These printables are so perfect for spring and summer decor projects, and even if you don’t work much with digital designs, you will love how easy these are. All you need to do is download and print.


One of my favorite things about Photo Play printables is how beautifully they coordinate with their existing paper lines. So if you like the simple route, just print and slip the design directly into your photo frame. Or, if you prefer, you can add a few extra details, like I’ve done here.


My frame was larger than the 8×10 printable, so that gave me room to add a few extra paper layers. I used recycled cardboard in between to add dimension, and removed the glass from the frame to build up the layers.


Stickers from the collection. Buttons and a bit of twine. Paper photo corners on the outside of the frame, too. It’s a good day to have a good day! Hope you all have one, too!

Happy Weekend!

Some Bunny Special with Photo Play Paper

Hello, Sweet Friends!
Happy Monday to all of you!


Before the Easter Bunny gets too far away from us, I wanted to share one last Easter-inspired card today that I made for Photo Play Paper using their adorable Hoppy Easter collection and matching clear stamp set.


I had mentioned before how much I love all the cute little Hoppy Easter critters, and this sweet bunny is just another to add to the list. I am so excited that Photo Play has begun adding clear stamps and die sets to their product line. This little guy was stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks, fussy cut, and popped onto the card with foam adhesive for some depth and dimension.


The Some Bunny Special card is from the cut-apart journaling card sheet. Such an easy way to add focal elements to a card design. I added a mix of patterned papers, a twine tie, and a few enamel dots to finish.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend, filled with friends, family, and a few special treats from the Bunny! Thanks so much for stopping by!
