A Sweet as Honey Mother’s Day with PhotoPlay Paper

Happy Thursday, crafty friends! With Mother’s Day quickly approaching this weekend, I thought now was the perfect time to share this mom card that I made for PhotoPlay Paper featuring their adorable Sweet as Honey collection.

As you may guess from the cute garden gnome, Sweet as Honey is a continuation of the popular Tulla & Norbert product line that PhotoPlay began releasing last year. This kit is perfect for spring and summer with it’s bright sunny colors and garden theme filled with flowers and bees. I created an outdoorsy scene for my card using stickers from the collection and a couple of die sets. I really love all the flowers, and I think most moms would, too.

To turn this card from an everyday card into a Mother’s Day card, I used a sentiment die set from PhotoPlay’s Say it With Stamps collection to die cut the word Mom into the front of the card. Once die cut, I nestled the wording back in place, adhering it to the inside of the card to create a fun, peek-a-boo window for a little element of surprise.

I hope all of you celebrating Mother’s Day this Sunday have an amazing weekend! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Sending Sunshine with Therm O Web

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all had a wonderful long holiday weekend! Today I am sending a little crafty sunshine your way with a pair of simple cards that I made for a fun feature we had on the Therm O Web blog last week, adding fabric to paper projects.

This sweet and easy-to-create pair of note-cards feature fabric applique die cuts made with Therm O Web Heatn’Bond Lite iron-on adhesive. You would think Heatn’Bond would only work for fabric to fabric applications, but it does equally well on paper. It was one of my crazier experiments to iron paper, but the process works like a charm and will open a whole new world of paper-crafting possibilities.

I think these note-cards are so fun and whimsical, and they are a great way to use up some of those smaller fabric scraps you may be holding onto. The Heatn’Bond Lite makes for quick and easy die-cutting and iron-on application and totally eliminates any need to add machine or hand sewing to the cards if that’s not your thing.

As always, I’ve got all the tips and tricks and step-by-steps for creating this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you a very happy week ahead!
