I decided to play along with Simon's Wednesday challenge this week...use more than one die. I usually keep my cards pretty CAS but I do like to use dies.

I made this card for a friend who recently rebranded her business with a pineapple logo. I figured Hero Art's pineapple set would be great! I love how nicely the layers worked on the pineapple. I heat embossed the final layers for some sparkle! I used several dies: for the pineapple, scribbled circle, stitched square and the word sentiment. 

I just love how it turned out!

Crazy Card Party-- Pocket Page

This week at Crazy Card Party, I am up and I want to see pocket pages! I have been trying to incorporate pocket pages into my scrapbooking albums lately. I find them very challenging! I think I just need more practice.

Here is one I did recently featuring one of the pretty castles we visited in Sweden in 2013.


Pretty basic, but I like the balance and coordinating colours. And acetate photo overlays are so much fun.

I can't wait to see what pocket pages the other Party-Ers post this week for inspiration!

Crazy Card Party-- use buttons

This week at Crazy Card Party, Kathryn is asking to see buttons. I never use buttons on cards or layouts. I am not sure why. I certainly have a big collection of pretty buttons. 

Here is a baby card I recently made. It is the "boy" version of the pink one I posted last month.


Turned out cute! I guess I need to try to use buttons more often.

I can't wait to see what the other Party-Ers create this week!

Peace and Joy

Today PTI is celebrating 2015! Twig Wreath was featured today. It is such a pretty set.

I used the twig wreath for this card. I love that you can add anything to it and it looks so nice. The bow is from Lovely Laurels.

Birds of a Feather

One of the loveliest PTI sets ever is Feather Finery. It is being featured as part of PTI's look to the past, 2014. 

I inked up the large feather with several different colours then misted. I love that effect! I topped it with gold embossed dots. And the sentiments in this set are so special.

Thanks for stopping by!

As part of PTI's celebration of the past, present and future, one of the featured sets for 2013 is Pedal makes me swoon every time! 

I love using it for Christmas cards...

Now that it is on my desk, I need to remember to use it for other occasions as well!

thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate Today

Today Papertrey is taking us back to 2012. It has been fun looking back at all the different stamp sets. One of today's featured sets, Embroidered Blooms, really reminds me of Color Pop Florals.

Thanks for stopping by!
