Luck Tag

Nothing better than sitting down after a stressful day for a little C&R (Craft & Relaxation). This tag was fun to put together and I will be sending it off to a friend to spread a little love.

Dream Tag

I am a member of a Tim Holtz fan group on facebook, a few of us decided to do a tag swap inspired by all things Tim Holtz. Using my distress inks as well as some oxides, stamps, and dies... here's what I came up with...


My little dream tag was inspired by IzzyBee Craft Creations. I think the little tag made a perfect addition to my big tag.

Feminine birthday card

I was so in love with the format and look of the masculine cards I was inspired to make a similar version for my mother. I think it turned out very beautiful and although the same general theme and colors we used it turned out very different.

Masculine birthday card

I sat and I sat and thought and thought.. I have such a hard time coming up with masculine cards for some reason. I worked on the background for an hour, adding colors, stamps, not liking it and trying to tone everything down. I arranged and rearranged everything over and over.  I finally had to walk away. I came back to the next day and almost without even thinking about it, I knew what I needed to do to complete this card. Almost like magic it came together and I have to say I am completely pleased with the outcome. I liked it so much, I ended up duplicating it for another birthday.

Halloween Tag

I got some new Tim Holtz Halloween 2017 stamps in and had to make something... so I re-created something he showed in his launch video! I love them!!! I see myself making many more to give away as gifts in my new future!

A 1st birthday card

I wanted to make my niece something special for her first birthday, and her theme was hot air balloons so I thought this would work quite nicely and I think I was right.

Vintage Inspired Photo Clip Display

I created this little photo display using a vintage photo I had, a vintage book page, distress ink and embossing powder on a piece of cardstock (that I ultimately mounted on a heavier piece of cardboard)
