Flower Garden Box Card for Mothers Day

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I love making box cards.  You’re creativity and imagination can go wild, because you can insert any kind of cut-out to create your card.  This flower garden card was made for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day.

2017 Mothers Day cardWhat is so sweet, she keeps some of the cards that we have given her for various occasions displayed in the china hutch. So for this card I decided not to make the sentiment visible so it can stay out all year.

My husband loved the way the fencing was around the base of the card 🙂

This card was made using my Cricut Explore Air, various Thin Cut dies used with a Cuttlebug machine, lots of Stamps and Ink.

Pink Flamingo’s I Must Be In Florida

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Close To My Heart has the cutest Flamingo stamp set and coordinating thin cut set  called Tickled Pink.

So many people think of Florida when they see Flamingo’s so I think this stamp set was made just for me, since I am a Floridian 🙂

All different kind of greeting cards can be made with this Tickled Pink set, but also think of accents for scrapbook pages, party invitations and decorations…

And remember just because its called Tickled Pink does not mean you have to make them pink.  You can use any color ink that you want.  That’s the best thing about creating your own paper crafts 🙂

It is Officially Summer and Time to Craft

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Now that it is officially summer, and school is out, what kind of plans do you all have?  Hopefully crafting is on your list 🙂

I have been busy with lots of stuff lately, and I want to share with you some on my handmade greeting cards that I have been making.  This card I made for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day.


I think I told you already but just in case you missed it, My girlfriend Kim, is a Close To My Heart consultant and I ordered the Workshops On The Go, Blossom Cardmaking Kit.  I have always made cards from scratch, never from a kit, but let me tell you, this is AWESOME!

Everything that you need to make 15 cards is included.   Serious, all I needed was paper trimmer, stamp pad, acrylic block and adhesive.  And I have leftovers to make more 🙂

If you want to order this kit, please just click on this link and it will take you to Kim’s shopping page – Blosson Cardmaking Kit #G1095  Tell Kim I sent you 🙂
