Smarty pants owl popcorn bag

Hi Imaginisce lovers!!! I am here with a fall themed card project for you. Who doesn’t love owls? I saw this one and couldn’t help myself - he is cu-whooooo-te! :)

The popcorn bag was a fun touch… my only regret was not popping popcorn for this picture! I love popcorn. I had just eaten lunch when I took this photo and wasn’t hungry and couldn’t bear the thought of throwing it away. Okay, I may have a hoarding problem! haha. 

 Don’t you just want to hug that owl? Okay, maybe that’s just me. :) 

Thanks for hanging out with me! I hope you have a whoooterific day!

Doodlebug - NEW product! Ghouls and Goodies!

Boo everyone! Did I scare you?! Okay, good. I don't really like scaring people anyway. :) 

I made a little doodlebug halloween card for you! I am NOT into the spooky halloween stuff at all. I LOVE cutesy halloween. love it. doodlebug's halloween lines are always SO up my ally!!! 

I was inspired by my cousin's quilt square for this card. She made a "wonky log cabin" quilt and I was enchanted with the idea of lines not matching up... as someone who always likes things "square", this was not only a foreign concept to me, but something I needed to do for my creative side.

To do this, I actually cut a 4x4" piece of cardstock into 4 pieces - 2x2" squares... so I couldn't line them up... because like I said, I have issues... ;) Then I did the 2x2 squares individually. You can see that I couldn't even cut the papers with a lot of slope. This totally felt avant-garde to me! haha. 

I also REALLY wanted to highlight the washi tape. There are 4 washi tapes that came out with this collection and I wanted ALL of them on my card! haha. The halloween chevron, "Trick or Treat", spooky stars, and dandy candy are all washi tapes! 

I wanted to show you how cute the new "chippers" look on a card! I put them on both sets of my cards this month. I hope you like them! They are so much fun! 

Helloooooooooo mini paper clips!!! These. Are. Darling. Pick them up. The colors - yum. 

I also wanted to use the fancy frills. I am terrible about using them on cards which is silly because they have a fabulous die cut edge. So I wanted to get a few of those on my card too. Now I am addicted. :)

My Craft Spot Guest Design Spot

HELLOOOOOO out there!!!! I am guest designing for My Craft Spot stamps today!  

My Craft Spot

I am writing you from Sweden and I just saw my first moose!!!!!!! Here we are. I know, you are SO glad I showed you these. :) 

We have all had a crazy summer, but before I left for Europe with two small children for a month (yes, I am crazy. They are 6 months and just 2.... we are surviving so far!) - I made this card for you using the CLOCK TIME stamp set.

Things I love about this stamp set:
1. The Sentiments.
They. Are. Awesome. I LOVE how My Craft Spot actually took into account sentiments that you would actually SEND to someone - not just things that are funny or would look cute with die cuts - but things that you want to say to people or will help them during different times of life. This card has an intended recipient that I cannot wait to give it to! 

2. The Clocks.
There is a clock for every kind of person. Old fashioned, roman numerals, etc etc. 
3. The parts of the clocks are off and there are different arms for different uses and styles. Love it. 

As you can see, I cut this little alarm clock and just forwent the cutting of the clock face in lieu of the stamp. I actually used 4 of the stamps on this little card! 

I added some stickles for sparkle including the center of the clock. 

I used some Imaginisce papers from the Welcome Spring line to cheer it up and the raffia is actually upcycled! We got a lovely gift from friends for Emmaline's 2nd birthday party and this was part of the wrapping. :)

Thank you SO much for having me guest design with these fabulous stamps! I had a great time and the quality is fantastic. If you were wondering how you can use this stamp set then I hope I have provided a little inspiration for you and you will pick it up post-haste! :)

Apple Shaped Card

Hi Imaginisce lovers!!! I'm here with a fall themed card project for you. Who doesn’t need thank you cards? I send a bunch out at once and then I am aways out it seems!

I downloaded this super simple apple card cut file and went to work! 

The twine was an afterthought so I pulled back the bottom stem of the apple afterwards and added it. Don’t be afraid to close one eye and pull the other side up slowly while you fix your mistake - praying the whole time that you don’t ruin your project. :) That’s what I do! :)

The sentiment is actually a sticker and I popped the apple. I liked the dimension of the whole thing. 

Thanks for hanging out with me! I hope you have a red delicious day!
