Masculine Birthday Card


Hello my lovely followers, and visitors!! Thanks for stopping by today. I have a wonderful masculine card to share with you. It seems my projects have all been guy related lately. I am craving some frilly things, lace, and pastel colors!! But before I get back into the all things girl, I wanted to share one last masculine project.


This card was made for my son's friend who's celebrating his birthday today. Gone are the days of candy filled cards, dino's, and trucks. heehee They are teenagers now! Wow!!

Hope you like the card. It's a real simple pattern to follow and should take just a few minutes to complete. Hope you are enjoying your summer!

Wishes for a great day!

One More Father's Day Card



Hi guys! As promised I am back with one more Father's Day card. I think this is my favorite out of the three and it is the one my son is giving his dad. :) Lots of fun detail in this card.




I hope you and your family have a wonderful Father's Day weekend. I have the greatest gift for my hubby and I can not wait for him to open it. But I can't share here for fear he may be reading this. So, I'll update you all after the weekend.

Wishes for a great day!

Father's Day is almost here!



That's right... Father's Day is almost here. Are you ready with your handmade crafts? If not don't stress. I will show you how to make a very simple card that will look masculine and be just the right touch for any gift.



This card my look hard to make, but believe it or not it's pretty simple. Try to use a product line that also has matching embellishments or pieces from the paper that you can cut out. Think about how you can tie it all together, such as how my "The Measure of a Man" tag goes along with the tape measure on the card. Use my simple layout and whola' a homemade card in no time. Finding masculine papers is not always easy. This line from Bo Bonny called Cambridge is an excellent source for creating crafts for the men in your life.



Now... what sentiment to put inside is always a hard task for me so I have gathered up some of my favorites for you. Feel free to use one or all of them for yourself. I have one more Father's Day card to share with you  this week. So stay tuned...

My job was to test the boundaries
Your job was to make sure I survived the test!
Thanks for being the guiding hand I needed.

Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder
will remain with me forever.

The greatest gift I ever had came from God
and I call him dad!

Wishes for a great day!

Father's Day Card


Hey guys! Summer is upon us and it was an absolutely beautiful day in the Midwest today. I have a Father's Day card to share with you. I have 3 more to make and will be sharing those as well. The papers used in this card are all Bo Bunny and very old. But I love um!! I am going to try to update my blog more often. The only thing is if I don't have time to craft... then there is nothing to share LOL. School is starting up next week. I am taking a summer course, but just one class. So I am hoping that will allow me to get back in my studio. I changed my blog photo ---> it was taken a few months ago and more current. I have been wanting to do that for awhile now.  :)




I hope June finds you doing well with wonderful scrappy plans for the summer! Thanks for coming by to see me. Wishes for a great day!

Happy Memorial Day!! Pencil Cup Project


Hey everyone, Happy Memorial Day!! I hope your enjoying a nice spring day today with family and friends. Our weather is a bit cloudy and rainy so what better else to do but craft? Heehee... I have a super cute pencil cup project to share with you today. It spins around too!!



I was able to alter each of the six sides as well as the top!








Maybe I will use it for my paint brushes instead!! Whatever the use it sure will look cute sitting on my table. I found the pencil cup at Marshall's months ago. Just haven't had the time to alter it till now. Hope you enjoyed my project!! Wishes for a great day!
