This layout was perfect to make some quick and easy birthday cards for kids.  I used designer paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. (Take Note), sentiment is from SU! (It's Your Birthday), and the stamp and die are from Archiver's (Hello Love).  Thanks for the cool layout Jen!

CAS(E) this Sketch #64

I've spent the morning making get well and thinking of you cards, so looked at the CAS(E) this Sketch ( ) web site for inspiration.  This came together nice and quick.  I used Wellness Wishes by SU! and some Designer paper I had laying around in my scraps.  


Needed to make a card for my friend whose grandma fell and broke her leg.  :( 
This layout worked well to make a nice cheery card.  I used DSP from Stampin' Up! and the die cuts are from PTI.  Thanks for the inspiration!

With all the recent snow days I've gotten some time to play!  I used Designer Paper from Fancy Pants (Trend Setter) and the heart is cut out from American Crafts (Everyday).  The heart die is from Stampin' Up! and the flag is from PTI.  Thanks for looking!

My mugshot

Nichole wanted us to include a snapshot of ourselves holding our creation.  It's always nice to see everyone's photo.  It's like a community gathering of crafters!


 The fun challenge today was to make a birthday card for PTI's 7th birthday and send it into the warehouse so the people that send us our lovely toys can see what the heck we do with them!  We were given free rein to come up with a theme, so I used two Make it Monday techniques and a color scheme that was part of the downloads on the first day of the anniversary posts.

7th anniversary day 4

So the challenge today was to make a 3x4 trading card that could be used as an accent on a scrapbook page or card front.   The zipper dies happen to be that size so I cut one out and just used a bunch of scraps that I had laying around (yes I need to clean my desk).  The top pic is the 3x4 and the bottom is the full card.  I'm trying to keep my cards more clean and simple lately and practicing the mantra, "more is not always better"! 

PTI digital print outs

I was able to make these cards the other day but am just getting around to posting them today.   It was fun using the digital printouts to make clean and simple cards.  They are nice to have around when you need to send a card out in a hurry!!

7 Minutes with PTI

The challenge was to take seven minutes to gather seven supplies to make a card in 17 minutes. It took me five minutes and the stuff was already out from yesterday's challenge with the digital stuff.  Fun, fun.  Yay!
