Have your CAKE and eat it too!


Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are having a good Labor Day.  In August and September we have a lot of Birthdays.  I need to get on the ball and make cards for the September birthdays.  So I wanted to share a birthday card I made using a Sizzix Circle Card Flip Die.  These are really fun and super easy to assemble.  The patterned papers I used are from Doodlebug.  The "Have your CAKE and eat it too!" sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Good Times."  I used an old balloon punch that I've had for a very long time on the inside.  Like I said, super quick and super easy.

I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,

Happy Blooming Birthday



Hello my crafty friends!  I know it's been a while since I've posted.  You know how summer takes over and you get to do non-crafty things.  Anyway, I just wanted to quickly post a birthday card I made recently.  It's called a Dutch Fold card.  I've made them before and saw someone's and decided to make another one.  Here's an old TUTORIAL from Splitcoast Stampers if you would like to make one.  The flowers are from the Flower Patch Stampin' Up! stamp set as well as the Happy Blooming Birthday.  I used the Flower Fair Framelits to cut them out.  The inside stamp is from the Amazing Birthday stamp set from Stampin' Up!

We have lots of back to school shopping to get done.  My daughter has had a growth spurt.  School starts in two weeks.  I can't believe it.  I hope to be posting more when school starts up again.  Lol  Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,

Happy 4th of July





Happy 4th of July my crafty friends!  I just love the 4th of July.  I love celebrating America's Independence Day, and as a Navy Veteran, I am very thankful to those who have served our country, and especially thankful to those that are currently serving.

My mom had recently asked me to make some treat holders for her co-workers for the holiday.  You know me, I LOVE to make treat holders.  I made about 15 of these.  We went to Zurcher's to buy the colored sixlets.  Yum!  I used the Cardz TV Stamps "Happy Days".  For the "celebrate," I used one of the stamps that was in Stampin' Up's July Paper Pumpkin Kit.  The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug paper pad called Patriotic Parade.  I just love Doodlebug, especially since the company is right here in Utah.  It's so awesome how many companies are here in Utah like Stampin' Up DCWV, WRMK, American Crafts, Provo Craft, SEI, and Close to My Heart.  So awesome!

Well my friends, I hope you have a safe and wonderful July 4th!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I really hope to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,

I'm So Glad





Hello my crafty friends!  With the storms we've had the last few days my internet has been giving me fits!  I hope the issues have resolved and I can get this post finally out.  Just as I was typing this it's telling me an error occurred while trying to save.  Grrrr.  I'll make this post short and sweet.  Anyway, this is my Father's Day card I made for my Dad.  The stamps are from the "Father's Day" and "Going in Circles" Cardz TV Stamps sets.  The L-O-V-E   Y-O-U was stamped using a Recollections alphabet set.


This card was made for a friend of mine to give to her Dad for Father's Day.  The stamps are from Stampin' Up.

I will close now and hopefully publish this post.  Like I said I have tried many times to write this post.  Internet can be so infuriating sometimes.  Well, I hope you have a wonderful day!  I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,
Laura

Party Hardy!



Hello my crafty friends!  I know I've been MIA for a while.  It's been crazy!  Sorry.  I hope to get in more crafty time.  I wanted to share a card I made for a dear friend who is visiting from Germany.  She is an amazing, giving, and caring friend.  Her birthday was yesterday and I made her this card.

The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug stack called Sugar Shoppe.  It has lots of fun papers for birthdays.  I used the Owl Builder punch from Stampin' Up.  The owl is on an action wobble.   I used the Cupcake Builder punch from Stampin' Up.  The stamps are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Good Times."  This set has lots of great birthday sayings.  If you would like to make a card like this, here is a tutorial a friend and I found.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,
Laura

Mother's Day Projects



Hello my crafty friends!   I hope all of you who are Mom's had a wonderful day yesterday with your families. I know I did.  I just wanted to share a couple of projects I made.  I gave this to my Mom yesterday.  I folds down so it will fit in an envelope.  I just love this Graphic 45 paper.  I was sad when I went to my local craft store and they were out.  The sentiments are from the Cardz TV Stamp set "Mother's Day."


I made this box like the one for the CTV challenge but I used the Mother's Day stamp set instead.  This was for a friend who ordered a card and a treat holder for her Mom.  Below is the card.




This is the card my children gave their Grandma.  I hand stamped on the white cardstock using a Stampin' Up stamp set called Stippled Blossoms.  I just love this set.  It's a double time stamp set and is very easy to use.  The sentiments are also from the "Mother's Day" Cardz TV stamp set.

 I meant to post these yesterday but I was very busy getting things together for a dinner.  I would love to hear what you think of them.  Have a wonderful day!

Lots of Hugs,
Laura

My Wonderful Friend


Hello my crafty friends!  I just wanted to share a quick card I made for a wonderful friend.  I don't know what to call this type of card.  I used the Stampin' Up Scallop Tag Topper Punch for a closure.   I have used this fun punch for so many different things,  I love it!
                                                    
The sentiments I used are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Heartfelt Wishes."  This is a wonderful set filled with sayings you could use for many types of cards.  I used paper from a paper stack from Stampin' Up called Fresh Prints .  For the banner I used the Banner Framelit set from Stampin' Up.

What do you think?  I hope to hear from you.  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
Laura
