Perfect Vacation.

Posted by Michelle on April 7th, 2014

We went to Disneyland for Spring Break.
We’ve taken the kids twice, and they don’t remember it, so taking them at ages 9 and 11 was just perfect.  And a lot more fun for us when we don’t have to worry about strollers, naps, and being afraid of Goofy – LOL.  Heck, we even got to sit while they ran off together without us.  It was a good time.  Better than good, actually.


My husband’s parents met us there, which was really fun for the kids.
So I’ve got a little card action for the kids to send to them which coordinates with the photo gift sack I made a while back.  All pieces (except the twine which is American Crafts) are from Imaginisce’s Perfect Vacation collection.

Did you roller skate back in the day?  I actually did not.  I was too scared.  But all my friends in the ‘hood did.  I even would go with them to the roller rink – and not skate LOL
Anywhozzle.  I had this fun card published in the January issue of CARDs magazine.  I always love seeing what the photographer does, and this one with the roller skate in the background just tickles my fancy.  Yeah, I said that.

Happy Hump Day!

TGIF – and Happy Pi Day!  I’m am hoping to get my pie on at some point today.
I’ve got a couple of fun things to share today – up first is a card that I had published in the January issue of CARDs magazine.  This card was featured in the die cuts section – I don’t do a lot of stamping, very very little actually, but I do love to add character to my cards with die cuts.


In other news, I’m excited to share that I’ll be designing for Fancy Pants this year.  One of my first cards in Paper Crafts magazine was a Fancy Pants card, so I’ve always had a special little lovie in my ♥ for the fancies.


Have a great weekend – and I hope you enjoy some PIE today!


Happy Easter – Card for my Son.

Yesterday I shared the Easter card I made for my daughter, and today I’m sharing the Easter card I made for my son.
Again I’ve used paper and embellishments from Imaginisce, this time working with their Welcome Spring collection.






Happy Easter – card for my daughter.

Posted by Michelle on March 10th, 2014

It dawned on me this weekend that I am pretty dang behind on Easter.  I pat myself on the back being way ahead of the game for some holidays and occasions, and others sneak up on me and I don’t get all the things that I wanted to do done.  So this weekend I did the most important part – cards for my littles.

Ladies first, a simple little Easter card for my daughter.
I used Imaginisce’s My Baby collection for all that pink – and bunnies!



I decided to add a fuzzy tail after I had already taken the main pictures.


And since I really didn’t leave myself a spot for a sentiment on the front, I just stamped it on the inside.  Verve’s Happy Easter stamp has been my one and only Easter stamp for years – I just love it.
