App-designed Mother’s Day cards for Grandma.

Posted by Michelle on May 11th, 2017

I’ve got a couple more cards to share with you today that I designed on my phone using the Rhonna Designs app.
While these aren’t handmade with the patterned paper and embellishments that we normally think of with handmade cards, I did have fun creating them just the same!

Today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card I made for one of our mothers.  I made one for his mom and one for my mom.
I used patterned paper and embellishments from My Mind’s Eye.
I’m not sure what’s in and trendy in the way of cardmaking designs, but I’m happy with this one.

Catch you tomorrow with more Mother’s Day cards!

More app-designed Mother’s Day cards.

Posted by Michelle on May 9th, 2017

I’m back today with another set of Mother’s Day cards that I designed using the Rhonna Designs app on my phone.
As I mentioned yesterday, this year I wanted to send out a bunch of Mother’s Day cards, so I took some shortcuts.

Back tomorrow with a more traditional handmade card. 🙂

Mother’s Day cards – all week!

Posted by Michelle on May 8th, 2017

I’m slowly getting back in to cardmaking.
We built a new house last summer and I now have my own craft room – which is super exciting!
However, I still haven’t put it together – which is super lame.
Part of it is/was laziness, but the other part of it is that we had an ice dam over the winter which created a water leak in the ceiling of my craft room and caused the ceiling to come open. So the room was out of commission for about 3 months.
But now it’s all taken care of, and I have decor and inspiration items to put up and just haven’t.  I do have my craft table and desk set up so that’s a start.  My supplies aren’t easy to get to or organized, and I haven’t bought new crafting supplies in probably over a year.  But I’ve missed my cards.  So I took some time over the last 10 days or so to work on Mother’s Day.

First up today is a cheat though – LOL
I wanted to send Mother’s Day cards to a lot of mamas that I know.  But I knew that handmaking 20+ cards just wasn’t happenin’.  So I designed some cardfronts and massed produced some of the cards that I needed.  I created these in the Rhonna Designs app, printed them out at Walgreens as 4×4, adhered them to a 4.25 x 4.25 card that I cut, and that was it! 
* don’t worry, there will be some truly handmade cards coming up this week 😉

Mother’s Day Happy Mail.

Posted by Michelle on April 13th, 2017

Today I’m sharing some Mother’s Day happy mail that I made to send to a a few of our aunts across the miles.
I started with these gold metallic polka dot Bigger Bitty Bags from Whisker Graphics because only gold would be suitable for mamas on Mother’s Day!

I filled my bags with some fun little things that mamas often have in their purses: kleenex, lip balm, mints … and a couple pieces of candy.

Punching fun shapes in coordinating paper for your own confetti is a neat touch!

I embellished my bags with patterned paper, large white gift tags from Whisker Graphics and finished them off with gold metallic Divine Twine.
