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)

A little extra added to a trade

I traded a few things with a fellow seller friend and I definitely got the better end of the deal, so I created a few ATC's to add to her package. Her favorite is Alice in Wonderland, hoping she enjoys these..

Learn to Dance in the Rain

I woke up early and decided to get creative... I started with the intention of signing up for a tag swap, but I feel like being selfish with this one. I like her too much to get rid of her.. so for now she'll stay.

ATC Swap: "Let Freedom Ring"

Swap number two in the books.. Let Freedom Ring was a great theme for July, very easy month to be inspired. But again.. I had a hard time saying goodbye (again) but I am happy to spread some love and creativity!
