Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card I made for a publication call. It didn’t get picked for that issue but I loved it anyway. Here is the sketch: As shared before in [The Missing Manual for Card Making] Stretch A Sketch, I rotated the sketch, gave the elements meaning and added special touches with stitched “X”s and dots “O”s :) It is a winning card in my book. All paper and embellishments are from Pebbles Yours Truly collection. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone! I’m sharing two 4th of July cards over at Pebbles’s Blog today and thought it would be fun to share another one here using the same collection: Americana! I started with my favorite paper from this collection “Home of the Brave“. The word “Sparkle” on it inspired me to spell “celebrate” using some white glitter foam alphabet stickers. I also used foam adhesive to add more dimension to the card. To my US friends and families – Happy 4th! Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Hello everyone! Happy Memorial Day! I made a card in honor of our hero. The Americana collection from Pebbles is by far my favorite patriotic line. I love that there is a nice kraft color mixed in the traditional red, white and blue. My favorite paper is this “Home of the Brave” paper from which I cut out my sentiment for the card. The pinwheel and the US flag tag are both ready made embellishments from the same collection. I trimmed one of the cardstock shape that says “Made in the USA” to make my banner on top. I also used foam… Read More »
Hello everyone! I hope your week’s been going well? I needed a congrats card for a lovely young lady’s graduation day so I pulled out my sweet paper goodies from Pebbles Front Porch collection to make it: A pre-made pocket with the sentiment “Congrats!” and a chipboard bird shape helped to make this card a quick and easy project! I then tied a piece of gray ribbon into a knot and then cut the tails. As a finish touch, we tucked in a few bucks for the grad to use! Winner!
