Life is Sweet

I thought I would share this cute
Pineapple card I made today!

I bought this die at a scrapbook convention this
past week and couldn't wait to use it

Hope you like it!

This Pineapple die is from The Stamps of Life.
It's a Pineapple fold it card not available on their website
until June 20th.  I was lucky enough to find it available at
 the convention I went to.  I couldn't pass it up.  
The sentiment is is something I just typed up in 
Silhouette and did a print and cut on.  

All of the solid cardstock is from Papertrey Ink and
the green polka dot is from Doodlebug Design.

Hope you enjoyed my card today!

Hogs & Kisses

I couldn't wait to share this really
cute card I made today...

I bought this die and stamp set this
past week and decided to make another
shaker card.

Hope you like it!

(click to enlarge pic.)


This piggy die is from The Stamps of Life.
It's called "Piggy Bank Die Set" and the sentiment
is from the "Piggybank2stamp" set.  I stamped it with 
The Stamps of Life Premium Dye ink pad in Licorice 
from one of their mini sets.
The die set comes with a shadow die so I just
cut the main die and the shadow die together and
used the outline portion that cuts between
the two of them.  
In order to make my shaker pocket, I cut out 11 of the 
Piggy outlines and layered them on top of each other with 
glue to create the depth needed for the size 
of sequins I was using.

You can check out this video I googled from YouTube HERE to get a
better idea of the layering effect.  She starts to layer at about min 3:30
on the video if you want to skip ahead.  It's a good video so you might
decide to watch the whole thing.

The cute frame I used is a die from Paper Trey Ink called

That's it!
Hope you enjoyed my card today!

Sunshine Kisses
&
Rainbow Wishes

I wanted to share another really cute 
card I made today.

This time, I made a shaker card with an
adorable stitched cloud die I have.

Hope you like it!

(click to enlarge pic.)


I used the Stitched Rainbow die from Papertrey Ink
and a Cloud die from an unknown source.
The background is the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables
die from Lawn Fawn.
The sun is from the Beach Palm Tree and Sun file by
Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Store (Design ID 28210).

I couldn't find the right stamp to use for 
my sentiment so I typed this one up  
and did a print and cut on my Silhouette.

In order to create my shaker, 
I cut out 8 of the clouds with the cloud die and layered them
on top of each other with glue to create the depth needed
for the size of beads I was using.

You can check out this video I googled from YouTube HERE to get a
better idea of the layering effect.  She starts to layer at about min 3:30
on the video if you want to skip ahead.  It's a good video so you might
decide to watch the whole thing.

I ended up scanning and tracing the shape of the cloud to my 
Silhouette in order to cut the layer of acetate for
the face of the shaker.

I used Fun Foam for the top layer of my 
Cloud shaker and filled it with fishbowl beads.
I love how it turned out.


Hope you enjoyed my card today!

Happy Mother's Day

I wanted to share the lovely
Mother's Day card I made for
my MOM this year.

Not to worry...she has already received it
and LOVES it so no spoiler alert...LOL!

I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire on 
shaker cards using tulle instead of acetate
to hold the sequins in place.

I couldn't wait to try it out...It gave the card 
such a nice soft look.

Here you go...

Inside

For the base of my card and back panel, I used cardstock
from Papertrey Ink soon to be Ink to Paper.

I created the circle shaker window by
from Queen & Co and filling it with
sequins from Lawn Fawn. Unfortunately,
I don't know the name of the mixed color. 

The cute floral patterned paper is from the
Flirty Florals 6 X 6 paper pad that comes in 
You can also buy it separately HERE.

The "Mom" on the front is from the

Then I finished it off with the Sentiment from
from Queen & Co.

This card exceeded my expectations.  I'm so
happy it turned out the way it did and I was
able to get it off to my Mom in time for 
Mother's Day.

Hope you all enjoyed this as much as we did. 

Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day!

Valentine Love Birds

Hello Everyone!

Just popping in to share a cute box card 
I made for Valentines Day. 

When I saw this card, I fell completely in love 
with it...ALL of it!  The colors were perfect sooooo.... 
of course I wanted to keep it the same.  
I happened to have some cute polka dot paper 
that I just got from Papertrey Ink so 
I decided to use it.  I only wish it were a little brighter red
but it worked out anyway :)

 Here it is...

Isn't this the cutest?

I just love box cards and I'm a sucker for polka dots...
I cut this on my Silhouette using 
the Lori Whitlock Valentine Love Birds
box card file from the Silhouette store.

love it if you would leave me a comment and tell
