Tag 2(TDD)

I had so much fun creating this tags.  They were easy to create.

Here’s how I created these tags:

  1. I die cut the Vintage A2 Mat Die a couple times out of Recollection White Cardstock and Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon cardstock.
  2. Then I used retired Stampin’ Up” Endless Wishes and stamp the different snowflakes and sentiment using Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate ink.
  3. Then I attached the back to some of the tags and left the others by themselves.
  4. I added the Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon to all of the tags and some rhinestones to two of the tags to finish them off!

Super simple and easy to do if you need a last minute tag!!

So what do you think? Please let me know below!!!

CASology 174 – Owl

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is :

Week 174 - Owl

Take a look at my postcard:

Thank you Owl

Oh man, I’m super excited about this postcard!!  I love how this turned out.  This image and  is Flora (Winter Owl on Tree Stump) from Purple Onion Design and I LOVE it!!

When I first saw these images I thought they were super cute but two small to color or watercolor so I was afraid to buy them.  Then I saw my good friend Julia from Just One More Card use them and she convinced me to give these stamps a try and BOY I’m glad she did.

For this postcard, I watercolored my stamped image.

I used Prima Watercolor Pencils:

  1. Scenic Route #62 and #58
  2. Hair & Skin Tones #16 and #90
  3. The Basics #91 and #22
  4. Earth Tones #119 and #114

The “thank you” sentiment set is from Purple Onion Design as well.

I’m super proud of myself and this postcard.  The colors are amazing.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with So Suzy Stamps!!

I’m currently on a couple college tours with my kids.  Yes, I have a 17 year old son who will graduate in June and I still can’ believe it.

We are currently walking on campus so let me jump in so that I don’t walk into trees while typing my post, LOL!!

Our challenge this month is all about Thanksgiving/Fall so I thought it was fitting to create thank you postcards to send those that we are thankful for.


Take a look at what I created:

Right at Home for the Holidays Ebook Inspired Projects!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a fun company called Right at Home!!  The owner Nicole is awesome!!  In July 2015, she launched her first stamp set, called Happy Mail.

Today, Nicole is launching her first ever E-Book called:

Right at Home for the Holidays”


Its a totally awesome E-Book!!  E-Book what does that mean?  An E-Book is a digital book that you purchase and its sent to you via email.  A physical version is not sent. You save the file to your computer and print it as many times as you need or you simple read it from your computer!!

Now what is in this E-Book, you ask?  Nicole put together 6 different project ideas with a supply list and instructions on how to create each project!!  This takes all of the guess work out of creating projects this holiday season.  You can create them as you see them in the book or you can put your own spin on them.  Its all up to you!!

Now take a look at one of the tags I re-created with the supplies I had on hand:

Sending Warm Wishes

I created the holiday tag on page 4 of the E-Book. I went with the dies and paper I had in my supply stash!  The hardest part to creating this tag was picking out the colors and papers to us.

The instructions were clear and to the point.

So what do you think of Nicole’s E-book?  Do you need more inspiration? We’ve got you covered.  Check out my fellow crafting friends blog for more inspiration:

So what do you think?  Will you pick up a copy of the E-Book for yourself?  Let me know below!
