    Catch of the Day for Girl’s Night Birthday

    Let’s talk Girls Night! Making a Masculine Birthday and the Perennial Birthday “booklet”, which we will talk about tomorrow.. So much fun creating your own DSP (designer series paper). Here was the hardest part, what colors to pick? Hummmm. Finally settled on Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake. Each attendee was given a 4 by 11 sheet of Whisper White. Now, how to get started….. my suggestion is to start with the biggest image first! These are all pretty much the same, BUT I choose the “fish basket”, using Crumb Cake ink. Be sure to leave room you can ALWAYS add. The coastal Cabana and hat were next. Lastly,…

    9/14 Coffee and Cards

    Coffee and Cards this week we are still working with the Perennial Essence Suite (152166). Today though we are working with just the leaves. There are two different types of leaves. Lets take a closer look…. I started with was the middle card this week. Punches, and a pretty edge. Do you see the Stitched Shapes die (145372)? Adding that to the second and third card holding the sentiment. First up, stamp, ink and paper. I sponged the separate sentiment piece so that it would POP! Keeping with the power of 3, like last week, leaves, ribbon and embellishments were added. The Braided Linen Trim (147808) is shown “pulled” apart,…

    The results are in.. Magnolia Lane

    Remember last weeks post?? Did you get you comment in?? I loved all the ideas and took a little from everyone to get the final card… Using the leaves, bakers twine and moving the sentiment. Also, a touch of Wink of Stella some ink and an extra layer to the sentiment. Want to see a close up?? The magnolia buds were switched to Blushing Bride, used the Petal Pink and Wink of Stella to the lower edge of the buds. A touch of Mossy Meadow ink is what gives the leaves that light color. I love the Wink of Stella and tried my best to get a good picture. Next…

  • Coffee and Cards,  No Stamping??

    Memories and More 8/3

    This week’s Coffee and Cards featured NO STAMPING… yup, that is correct. No ink was used. Am I scaring you?? No worries, dontcha love how they turned out? However, there was one that was NOT cooperating.. but I did get it figured out! You need to try the Memories and More Card Pack (149554), the last card used uses the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories and More cards and envelopes (149487). The three took all of 30 minutes to design and create… The trouble was this Glittered Organdy Ribbon (147897). During the video I could not figure out how to add it, BUT… the idea hit afterwards of course! View…
