Thanks & Best Wishes with Therm O Web


Happy Fri-YAY, friends! Today is my day up on the Therm O Web blog, where I’m sharing a pair of cards I made for Creativations (CHA) with the new designer stencils and new colors of deco foil. And I wanted to share my cards with you all here, too.


I used the beautiful Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous Flutter stamp set and some stitched circle dies for the focal panels, and layered them with simple patterned paper and sentiment strips. The graphic backgrounds were made with a bit of masking and inking, followed by deco foil stenciling to create the cool metallic pattern on top.


I always love a good side view of the deco foil. Really shows off its amazing texture and shine. I used my two favorite new colors of deco foil for these cards- denim and jade. And two of the new stencils in the Starburst and Pinwheel designs.


I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for today’s cards up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Photo Play Paper

Hi Friends, and happy Tuesday! I’m a day behind in my regular posting schedule this week, and overdue on my blog visits, too. This past weekend was my annual fall scrapbooking retreat with my Crafty Gals, and I have just returned from a very lovely four-day adventure at the beach. It was a small group of seven of us this time, but we had such a wonderful time.  The weather was absolutely perfect, and the food was fabulous, and I haven’t laughed that hard in a good long while. I know I’ve said it before… but there’s nothing like girlfriend time to replenish the soul.


Today I have a couple of cards to share that I created for Photo Play Paper for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Both cards feature freebie downloadable printables and cutting files Photo Play created in honor of the occasion, and if you are on their mailing list, you will have received the files and instructions for these cards in your email earlier this month.


This first card is a 5″ square design, layered with crisp black cardstock and patterned papers from Photo Play’s French Flea Market 6×6 Paper Pad. I used my scalloped border punch and a Tim Holtz Stitched Rectangle die. The pink ribbon is one of the cutting files from this month’s freebies.


I added a button and twine to finish the card. The sentiment strip is from the freebie printables sheet.


The second card uses more paper from the French Flea Market pad, as well as some from the Seeds of Kindness 6×6 pad. And the sentiment and journaling card are part of the downloadable freebies.


I added a pink button to the center of the brassiere and photo corners to ground the framework. Lots of bold black and white to make the images pop.


I hope to catch up with all of you soon! And hello from the Crafty Gals…

A Butterfly Birthday with Tim Holtz & Sizzix

Hi Friends! Happy Monday to you!


I definitely woke up to a little crisp in the air this morning, which just proves that my very favorite month of the year must be here, October! It is just about time for spooks, my friends, and I can’t wait to start sharing some of my Halloween projects and decor with you all.

But for today, I have a pair of birthday cards to share with you that I made awhile back for the Sizzix blog featuring the fabulous Flutter line of stamps and dies by Tim Holtz.


It seems like I am always in need of birthday cards, so I like to try to build up a stash of ready-made cards to keep on hand. The new Tim Holtz Flutter butterflies are so beautiful and fun to use, and work really well for year-round birthday card designs. Today I’ve created a bit of a summer-inspired look using light pastel colors in an earthy color palette, paired with lots of crisp white and bold black to make everything pop.


I used a variety of different Flutter butterfly images to stamp the background paper, and then die cut and colored one to be the focus of the design, nestled within a Tim Holtz Stitched Circle die cut frame. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to be back on Friday with the beginnings of my 2018 Halloween Haunted House Tour! Until then, wishing you all a wonderful week!

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.

***Sneak Peek giveaway!***

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!

Hello, Friends! Happy Monday!


Last week the Therm O Web team had the great pleasure of joining up with Art Impressions. I made two birthday cards with their adorable Spring Chicken stamp set and Photo Play Paper’s beautiful French Flea Market collection.  Today I’m here with the second of those silly cards.


I have to say, this stamp set really does make me smile. Who knew a bunch of chickens could be so darn cute? And love the pun sentiments that go along.


Hope your weeks are off to a great start!

Vintagy & Fabulous with Therm O Web and Art Impressions

art-impressions-logo

Hi sweet friends! Happy Friday!


This old spring chicken reminds me a bit of myself first thing in the morning. Definitely vintagy and fabulous…. but not too cheerful until I get some coffee down me! LOL. This adorable old gal is from Art Impressions’ new Spring Chicken stamp set, and we have the great pleasure of working with Art Impressions this week on the Therm O Web blog.


My friend, Paige, keeps chickens, so I must admit I had her in mind when I saw this set. Think this might be my birthday card for her this year. I think she’ll get a kick out of it.


Couldn’t resist that lovely cardstock sticker on the front mixed with the fun sentiments from the stamp set. It, and all the papers I used, are from Photo Play Paper’s new French Flea Market collection. They seem to go together hand in hand. I used some fun kraft photo corners from Therm O Web to dress up my card, and a bit of twine, too. And foam adhesive between layers for lots of depth and dimension. Image is colored with Zig Clean Color markers.


Art Impressions has released such a fun collections of stamps this spring, and we are really excited to share some of them to you! Therm O Web and AI have joined together to offer an amazing prize package, filled with stamps, adhesive, and some Deco Foil transfer sheets, too. Be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog and enter our rafflecopter giveaway, open through the end of the day tomorrow.
