Anniversary Card and a Freebie

This anniversary card was made with DCWV Bella Armoire designer
paper stack. It's such a pretty design of papers ! The inside of the
card panels are decorated also using the black and ivory dotted paper
and a pretty center journal piece included in the stack.
I made a Happy Anniversary digi-stamp to fit inside the 2" Spellbinders oval .
I'm offering it as a freebie for those that can use it. I darkened the digi
for better printing clarity as you can see in the preview at 4 shared. There
is room to add your own year or just print as is .
I'd love to hear from you and see what you make also !

You can get your digistamp .....HERE

Necklace card and Scroll Journal Freebie

My beautiful daughter's birthday is today . I incorporated a necklace into
her birthday card. One of the layers is a pocket where I hid
the chain. She can just pull
it out later to wear it. In the picture one of the top pearls popped off
the circle die cut and I
added it back later after I noticed it missing. I've found out you need to
glue those tiny pearls
to some cardstocks. I decorated the inside also with matching paper
and made a scroll journal
piece to write a few words. I'm trying to teach myself calligraphy.
It's way harder than it looks !
If you'd like the scroll journal for inside a 5 inch card , you can get it


 The journal lines are faint. If you want a bold line, this one might not be
for you.

First Day School card and a freebie !

I saw a card design I really liked one day . The card markers name was Wendy
from Kingstons Kreations blog. Her apple card was from a Cricut cartridge I believe.
I made this one for my grand daughter on her first day
of school. I cut the apple card base as best as I could just using my scissors. Those
seeds took longer than the base.
I thought I'd offer you the sentiment I made for inside the smallest Spellbinders oval.
I'm still stuck on the Summertime font. I need to change it up next time.:-)
The inside of card has a free printable subway art from sweetcoconutlime Blog reduced
to 3 inches.

Anywho, you can download the small png file ....HERE

I also wanted to RAVE about the new No Shim Embossing Mat for Cuddlebug. Mine
finally arrived in the mail and I love, LOVE, LOVE it. Nothing
else is needed to emboss after the cut but this mat and the 2 B's. TERRIFIC product !

It's storming here in the mitten ! Perfect day to make cards unless we lose power.

Happy First Day of School digi Freebie

My sweet granddaughter goes back to school here soon . I wanted to send
her a treat for her lunch bag. Inside the card box is a 1.8 oz box of
Good and Plenty and a note from grandma :-) It's our favorite candy to
share together once in awhile. I made the digi stamp for the 2" punch .
I thought I'd share it with you . It looks cute with the scallop punch .
The double punched circle would look just as cute glued to a sucker  or
any thing in their lunch bag actually.

 The Free Digi Stamp is.....HERE !
