Hebrews 4:16

Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card for a friend who lost a loved one.  This is an A2 size card which is pretty much the only size I make. The solid cardstock is Outdoor Denim and Colonial White from Close to My Heart and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.  The scripture and image stamps are from the Verve New Mercies set.  The inside says "May you find peace in the days ahead".  The ribbon and gems are from my stash.  I hope I won't be needing anymore of these anytime soon.  Until the next time, be happy.  You can never have too much happy.

You Can Never Have Too Much Happy

This is the third card in the Laughing Lola cardmaking WOTG.  I totally agree with this sentiment, you can never have too much happy.  The frame for the sentiment was cut on the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I hope you liked these cards.  You can purchase this WOTG by clicking the Shop With Me link on the right.  The item # is G1064,  Until the next time, keep on crafting.

Thinking of You

This is the second card in the Laughing Lola cardmaking WOTG.  I like that it uses a banner cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Did I tell you that everything you need is included in the kit, even the baker's twine and the purple gems?  I hope you like it.  I'll be back later to show you the final card in the kit.

Chocolate is Good For You

This cute little card was a make and take we made during our August unit meeting.  It was made using the August Stamp of the Month, A Chocolate Affair (S1308A).  The chocolate-covered strawberry was stamped three times, cut out and layered for a dimensional look.  The chocolate was heat embossed with clear embossing power.  The red shimmer tape is new in this catalog and it is gorgeous.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  There is still time to get this set before the end of the month. Just place a $50 order and you can purchase it for $5.  Remember, you can only purchase the SOTM during the month it is featured. After that it is no longer available.

Miss You Like Crazy

I made this card using the Laughing Lola cardmaking Workshop on the Go.  The colors in this paper collection are absolutely gorgeous.  If you like purples and yellows and blues, you will love Laughing Lola.  I substituted the sentiment stamp.  The stamp that comes with the kit says "Cheer Up".  I decided to use the 4 My Friend stamp set (D1510, $17.95) which contains a lot of very nice sentiments and I used a different one on each card.  

The Workshops on the Go (WOTG) are a great value.  You get enough products to make three different cards, five of each, for a total of 15 cards with envelopes. Everything you need is included except the ink and adhesive.  This kit (G1064) sells for $24.95 plus tax and shipping.  I used Outdoor Denim (Z2140), Crystal Blue (Z2117), and Pear (Z2197) stamp pads.

To order this kit, click the Shop With Me link on the right.  Until next time, keep on crafting.

Sweet as Cherry Pie

This is a card I created awhile ago using Elemental, a retired CTMH paper pack, and the July 2013 Stamp of the Month. This is a swing card cut from the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.

I have been creating but haven't been posting because I haven't had the energy to take the pictures, upload to my computer, pull them into photoshop, resize, add the watermark, then post. Whew, I get tired just thinking about it. Last year I learned how to post directly from my iPad but I didn't like posting pictures without a watermark. Well, I just found an inexpensive--can you say 'free'--app that let's you add a watermark to your iPad pictures. It is called ezy watermark and I used it on these pictures so this is it's trial run. I hope you like it.

As with the previous cartridges, this one comes with three stamp sets and three sets of coordinating dimensional elements.

Here is a sample of what you can create using this cartridge:
