Happy Anniversary 🎉 Day 1

Welcome!

I’m starting a Happy Anniversary series this week. I had to begin with an origami dress. If you’ve been following me, you know the origami dress is one of the first cards I ever made and sold on Etsy. I’ve come a long way since that first card, but origami will always be my favorite ❤️

The lighting is a little off on this card. I got wrapped up in watching the finale of American Idol! By the time it was over and I made my card, it was already dusk. It’s ok! I think it still turned out pretty cool.

Until tomorrow (and hopefully better lighting)…

Wedding 💒 Day 1

Welcome!

With the weather being so nice these past few days, I was inspired to focus on wedding cards for my weekly series. Nothing prettier than a spring or summer wedding. Although I got married during the fall 😊

The cut aways are from a paper pad I purchased from Hobby Lobby last winter. The glitter paper is from a pack I just purchased from Michael’s just last week! The accompanying tulips were a gift for my daughter’s graduation.

Have a great week everyone!

Until tomorrow…

Celestial 🌔💫 Day 7

Welcome!

Today’s card is the last installment in the Celestial series. It is also dedicated to all mothers. I’m sure at some point as little ones, we all felt this about our moms.

Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Sunday ❤️

Until tomorrow…

Celestial 🌔💫 Day 2

Welcome!

Feeling a little disorganized today. I found out yesterday, I need to attend training tomorrow. I have to travel about 2 hours to get there and I’m leaving in about a hour. Just stopped to pick up a quick bite to eat.

Soo-I need a little magic to keep my nerves calm and my wits about me as I take this drive tonight. I will check in with you tomorrow!

Rugged 🤠 Day 6

Welcome!

For those of you that do not know me, I started my crafting journey by making origami dresses and shirts to be the focal points of my handcrafted cards. I found origami was a great way to focus my thoughts on one task, which helped reduce my anxiety to manageable levels. I remember getting a MRI and going over and over in my head the process of folding an origami dress.

Happy Saturday to you and yours!

Until tomorrow…

Rugged 🤠 Day 5

Welcome!

Today’s card was unexpected. I currently sell my cards on consignment at the Eau Claire Local Store and I received an email earlier this week requesting more birthday cards, specifically the one I am sharing with you today.

I have given this card to only two people and they both are males, so I thought it would be fitting to blog about it in my “Rugged” series 😊

This was a fun card to make. I used my Cricut to cut out all the balloons and also dimensional to pop up a few to give the card more interest.

I hope you are having a good day! It’s almost the weekend!

Until tomorrow…

Rugged 🤠 Day 4

Welcome!

Today’s card was inspired by Stamping Jill’s YouTube Channel. It’s a diagonal fold card, which is a new style for me. The base was not too hard, but matching up the designer paper was quite the challenge for me. For whatever reason, I couldn’t get it to work, so my husband did it for me 😊

I hope you are having a great day! It’s almost Friday!

Until tomorrow…

Rugged 🤠 Day 3

Welcome!

Do you ever have an idea in your head, but when you put it to paper, it doesn’t look as good as you imagined? That happens to me a lot, but not today!

I am thrilled with how this card turned out! It is much better than I had imagined! I got the idea from watching Maymay Helmes’ YouTube channel. She has lots of ideas for masculine cards. I particularly liked this one!

Hope you are having a great hump day!

Until tomorrow…

Rugged 🤠 Day 1

This week I’m going to give it a good shot at creating masculine cards. This is a stretch for me because I have all of the lace, sequins and ribbons to make a ton of feminine cards. I don’t have much to make guys cards 😂

Today’s card was made with my son in mind. I want to send him a thank you card for the time we spent with him and his girlfriend in Arizona. The paper reminds me of our hikes and all the fun we had together.

Until tomorrow…

Vintage Wit 🤣 Day 6

Welcome!

I am still having fun with this paper pack! The background of this card is exactly the same as my favorite sweater I wore in the early 90s. 😂

I’m thinking I could have used a different background and made this card more masculine. Hmmm. I will have to jot that down for my Masculine card series coming up soon!

Until tomorrow…
