Another Workshop Card

I really like the Boom-Di-Ada papers by CTMH. This card was made with the "Creative Basics" packet, which is a packet of multiple sheets of 2 paper designs. I originally got it for some wedding shower invitations, but the paper is also perfect for a card workshop. The little circle was cut with the Coluzzle circle template. The ric-rac ribbon is great because it doesn't need to be tied into a knot or bow like most other ribbons, which makes it a little easier to work with. I used the new Originals card making/layout book for this card's design.

Supplies: Hollyhock, Buttercup, White Daisy, and Sweet Leaf cardstock, Boom-Di-Ada Creative Basics paper, gold brads, Coluzzle circle template, August Stamp-Of-The-Month "Today's Date". Hollyhock ric-rac ribbon. All supplies CTMH.

New Fun Stuff!

This week I received 2 shipments from CTMH... one was a package of accessories that I received for keeping my website subscription for a year and the other was an order of regular supplies. The accessories are fabulous! I got all kinds of ribbon, fibers and embellishments.

The second shipment was supplies... included was the NEW Originals for card-making. It has gorgeous pictures and great card layouts. I can't wait to use it!

Man Cards

I probably send out more girly birthday cards than I do man cards, but I always seem to find myself thinking... "I need a man card for _____'s birthday!". I never have one in my stash, so I always have to make it up, and it's usually the day before their birthday (LOL--I never seem to be ontime!). Anyway, here are a few Man Cards I have made this year. Enjoy!

Supplies: Everything used here is CTMH, except for a star punch used in the top photo.

Baby Shower Favors

I made these earlier this year for Beth's baby shower. I bought small (2x2x2 inch) clear boxes to hold candy, covered them with stamped images and tied up a ribbon around them. Beth and the guests loved them!
