Telephone Card


I've created a fun little card to share.


The telephone is a file from Miss Kate Cuttables. In fact, it's one of the first SVG files I ever got but I've only just got around to using it now.


I used a sweet little stamp from the Craftin Desert DivasShort and Sweet Tags set. This set has such a wonderful variety of sentiments for all sorts of occasions. I LOVE the adorable little "Hi" - just right for sneaking into a small spot!





And look! It wobbles!

Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous day!

I Ruff You



Today I have created for you a fun little treat box made with a file from Lettering Delights' Animal Boxes and Bags


After cutting and assembling my box, I used the NEW Fur-ever Friends stamp set to add the fun sentiment. The sweet little smiling heart is a stamp on the same set!! Each CDD stamp set comes with FREE co-ordinating SVGs so I welded the "I ruff you" and "heart" svg images to make my sentiment shape. I also created a shadow using the offset feature.



I made some paper wraps for the little chocolates and stamped them with the happy hearts too.

Have a mice day!



First of all, I have to give credit to my wonderful and talented friend, Sherrie, of Sherrie Scraps with Passion. She posted some adorable animal pillow boxes over the weekend and I completed changed my project as I fell in love with them!! (Thanks, Sherrie!) I couldn't find a file with a mouse, and I was determined to use a mouse, so I took a pillow box from SVG Attic and a mouse from Kadoodle Bug Designs and blended the two. 



Once I had assembled everything, I added a little gingham bow and used one of the NEW Furever Friends sentiments. Isn't it the cutest thing? I gave the pouches to the kids for Family Day yesterday and they all loved the "Have a mice day" sentiment (as well as their treats).

For those of you participating in the CDD promotion, here's today's free pattern:

Love Always



Happy Family Day to those of you in the Canadian provinces that celebrate the day!! Enjoy the time off with your favourite people. 


This week, I decided to make a card for my husband. We met 26 years ago next month, and we always celebrate the day we met. I'm still completely and utterly in love with him. I used an embossing folder and stamp set that came in a recent issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. I removed the heart portion from the middle and distressed and inked all the edges. I then used the flourish stamp in the heart. However, instead of using the sentiment that came with the stamp, I switched it up for one from Craftin Desert Divas' Simply Said stamp set. (This set has a variety of sentiments for all sorts of occasions.)


I finished off my card with some bits of paper tape, a key and some vanilla crinkle ribbon, as well as a few pearls and a tiny heart cut-out.

Have a fabulous day!

Birthday Hugs


Happy Saturday - and happy long weekend to those of you in provinces which celebrate Family Day. It's my daughter's reading break this week so she'll be coming home later today for the week. I can't wait!! It's bitterly cold outside so we'll likely stick with indoor activities (although a trip or two to Starbucks is always worth braving the elements).


I've taken on a part-time design team role with Too Cute by Jessica and I've made a card for my nephew who will be turning one next week. The adorable Birthday Boy Bears has a few great images and this one holding the balloons is my favourite. I used some metal dies (no longer available) from My Craft Spot for the fun borders at the top and bottom as well as the orange photo frame behind the bear. I added some baker's twine for the balloons too. The bear and his balloons are popped on the card for a bit of dimension.


I love the chunky font on my sentiment from Craftin Desert Divas's Bring on the Cake stamp set. It's perfect for a child's card! I added a couple of enamel dots to finish things off.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Valentine Mouse


Today, I am sharing a Valentine’s card that I created.


I started with a heart frame from My Scrap Chick. The file came with the rounded square mat for the centre, and I from Treasure Box Designs. The file came with the red heart (which I embossed with a tiny dots folder). I then added a few more little hearts around the red one. There’s a little bit of Valentine baker’s twine strung between two of the hearts in the frame too.


At the bottom of my card, I stamped a fun sentiment from the Simply Said stamp set. I LOVE the heart-shaped letter o’s on this sentiment!! I finished everything off with another little heart next to the sentiment.

Have a fabulous day!
