Love Jar Card Kit

This week my project was
to follow along with Kristie Marcotte's
6x6 paper pad tutorial.

Here's the link to her blog:

Kristie got 40 cards out of this kit, I only got 27
but she's a lot better at this than I am - however,
I'm still happy.

I created a quick video to show you the cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

New mini album!

Here is a quick video of a mini album that I just completed!  Enjoy. 

I'm back with a quick list of supplies used.

Bundle of Joy 12x12 kit (kit included 2 sheets of
elements used throughout the album, also contained
one sticker sheet)
Solid color cardstock from my stash and it is Stampin Up.
Small tags we from a die from My Creative Time as well
as the little folder die.
Pink ribbon is seam binding that I dyed with a Tim Holtz
Picked Rasberry distress ink pad.
Various buttons, twine & ribbon from my stash.
Various corner rounders and punches used from my stash.

Special shout out to Ginger Ropp, My Sister's Scrapper who inspired 
the mini album and I used one of her tutorials to create this one.
I have made this one before and I loved it.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today - I 
hope you enjoyed my creation!

Card class cleanup!

I’ve started to teach card classes
In my home since I have retired. 
It has been so much fun and I love
Sharing my supplies and knowledge that
 I’ve gained over the years.

Here are a few pictures of what I 
Created while cleaning up and putting
My supplies away.

Shaker cards!

 Love working on shaker cards! Had to share this one.
I will admit that this one took me about three hours.
But I think it’s worth it!

I saw something similar on Pinterest and I just had to create for my
granddaughter in CA.  She loves mermaids!

Here's another one:

This one uses a shaker pouch from
My Favorite Things so it was very easy
to complete.  I maybe had an hour in this one.

While shaker cards take me longer to create they
are normally a real stress reliever for me since I love them
so much!

Thanks for stopping in to see my creations!

Shaped cards!

EARLY IN my card making career
I would love to view blogs that featured
shaped cards.  This card is a Lori Whitlock file
and it was so easy to put together.

Since retiring on December 1 of last year,
I think I've started to feel more domestic!  LOL.
My mixer has been getting use and
when I saw this file I just couldn't resist.
Of course when you purchase the file it's yours
so you can make this over and over again.

Of course I had to use my favorite Cardztv Stamp sets,
Sugar Rush & Foodie Punnies to finish
off the card on the outside and inside.

Have a terrific Memorial Day weekend
and remember those who have honored
our country by giving the ultimate sacrifice.

God Bless the USA!
