World Card Making Day 2014

Hi everyone! 

I thought I would be spending this Saturday doing laundry and making cards...but I spent the morning brainstorming some business ideas, so my first card did not get made until late afternoon. A second card quickly followed and now I am on a roll this evening. :D

WCMD2014 was a good opportunity to use my October 2014 Card Kit featuring the Simon Says Stamp "What's Brewing?" Here's a photo of the kit: 


Here is the first card I made today. Didn't come out as I had originally planned, but might be one of my favorite cards ever thanks to the Basic Grey Grand Bazaar 6x6 papers in the kit. I used Simon Says Stamp ink on the cups and Memento London Fog for the steam. I used Distress stickles in Tea Dye for the coffee in the cups. 


I made a process video of making this card but I do not think it will be posted on #worldcardmakingday 

My second card was also made using the Simon Says Stamp October card kit. I really wanted that whipped cream look on the cup of latte. 


Any other cards I am able to make tonight will be posted in a blog post tomorrow. Trying to post more often! 😉

Happy Creating! :D

Winner with flair...

Hi everyone! 

I tried to make a catchy title. LOL

I won an adorable flair set from Toni From Designs. 


I have followed Toni From on Instagram and been inspired by her creativity. Toni launched her new shop a week and a half ago. She had an Instagram giveaway and I won, along with my IG friend Marni who alerted me to the giveaway. Congrats Marni!!

I was so excited about the win because I had two photos that I knew would go perfectly with the flair and were part of my Project Life for September. 

Here are the PL cards I made using the flair:







The pineapple card belongs in Week 35 and the pumpkin toaster pastries in Week 38, neither of which have completed layouts.

I'll be featuring the completed layouts in YouTube videos...eventually. 
Click here for the YouTube video that gives more detail about the flair I won and showing some of my process for these two cards. 
Happy Creating! :D
