Just Blooms meet Button Carnations


This is a card I made for a customer. Flowers are CTMH Just Blooms. The button carnations are some retired paper that I had on hand. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch. Enjoy. TFL!

I absolutely LOVE these flowers! They are called button carnations. I watched a tutorial on them on YouTube by Connie MacFarlane and they are super easy and give such an elegant touch to anything! I plan to use them often! Enjoy!

Twisted Easel Card

I found this super cute card on Youtube and I have fallen in love with it! Instead of a fold up easel card, this one folds up and twists to the side. It adds a little extra "pop" to the card. Hope you enjoy!

Card Box

Here is a super cute card box that I made using my CTMH Sophia Paper and some Prima flowers. I got this idea from a fellow consultant. I am still working on all the cards to go inside but I have a sample of one to go along with the box. Enjoy!

Happy Father's Day

I hope everyone is doing well. It's been a while since I've posted anything but it just seemed like I kept getting bad news. I just lost my uncle a little over a month ago and then my grandfather 2 weeks ago. Needless to say I haven't been inspired very much. I am trying to get back to work. Here is a quick Father's Day card that was inspired by one of my fellow CTMH consultants. I used our retired Sasaparilla Paper that I TOTALLY forgot I even had. Hope you like and I will be posting more very soon! Have a blessed day!

Thank You Tuesday

Here are a few cards that I made for our Thank You Sistah/Brotha RAK Swap over at SOC. I chose to do the same design since I was making several but I did them in different colors. Again I used the Cricut Lite Cartridge Lacy Labels, Forever Young Cartridge and the Thank You Sentiment is from CTMH's Say it in Style stamp set. The various paper for the dress is from my scrap bin and the flower accents are my absolute FAVORITE Prima Flowers. They are the best! Hope you enjoy this thankful Tuesday!

Lots of Love and Scraps,

More Monday Madness

Here are a couple more cards I did today. I used the Cricut Lite Lacy Labels Cartridge to cover the card base. I love Lacy Labels. It's such a great cartridge with lots of versatility! More to come on tomorrow!

Lots of Love and Scraps,

Monday Madness

Happy Monday to you! I'm back at it again! I got a late start after being a little lazy today with the rainy weather here. I've managed to get 2 cards done and I am still working! I feel like my mojo is back! Stay tuned!
