Christmas Town card set

Okay, can I tell you a secret?  I am a last minute Christmas card sender!  It’s true – even though I have a number of cards that I send over to Europe, I am usually hitting the post office at the last minute!

But this year, Doodlebug’s new Christmas Town collection has me crafting months in advance- it’s like my very own Christmas miracle.  But I mean, come on…I am not one to break with tradition, but with this cute collection sitting on my crafty kitchen table, how could I help myself?!

This little step card collection was  made using a simple formula – Petite Prints and 12×12 patterned paper for the background and adorable Odds and Ends die cuts for embellishment!

All three of these cards follow the same formula, but change up the papers, colours and characters and you have completely unique cards!

If you are looking for more details on these cards or would like to see how I hid a gift card in them, pop on by the Doodlebug blog for more information!

Petite Prints

Well, it was back to school earlier this month and that  usually spells the end of summer.  But I’m not ready this year.  Give me a couple more weeks of leisurely schedules and beach afternoons and I would be a happy gal. While I might not be able to change what the calendar says, I can change what my crafting space looks like.  So, I’m going to take a few more weeks to fill it with bright, colorful projects that bring the summer sunshine inside!

Like these little treat containers that I made with the amazing new Dot-Stripe Petite Prints and Floral-Graph Petite Prints.  If you have never worked with Doodlebug’s Petite Prints, you have been missing out.  These perfectly coloured patterned papers coordinate with everything Doodlebug, but definitely stand on their own as well.

If you are looking for more details on this project, I have them all posted over on the Doodlebug blog.  Don’t hesitate to stop by and say hi!

Hello Summer – It’s me!

Hello Summer! It’s good to see you hanging in there with me this year!  Up here in Calgary, it’s been a hot one…we actually had the highest recorded temperature happen last week…and this week, the smoke has rolled in from the forest fires in B.C. But it is definitely still summer, so before “back to school” slaps me in the face in two weeks, I thought I would share some summer fun!

 

This was a little card set I made for Doodlebug not too long ago.  I love the colours on these ones…

…and these adorable seagulls!  This collection is called Sweet Summer, and it is just that!

I used one of my favourite card styles for two out of the three- the side step card!  I love that this card allows me to feature an image or a sentiment, but also create a bit of a scene.

If you are interested in seeing more of these projects, feel free to pop on over to the Doodlebug blog.  I have posted links to all the products used and a few more details about the design and style.

In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying your summer!  Thanks for stopping by!

Tiddly Inks Blog hop

Spring has sprung!  Truth be told, I wasn’t sure it was going to happen this year.  Today, we are outside riding out bikes and there isn’t any snow in sight.  Ahhhhhhh!

So today is the perfect day to share a spring inspired card for the Tiddly Inks Blog Hop!  And given that I can actually see green outside, I was inspired to bring some of it inside onto this little card I created!

I love this little stamp!  Called “Changing Chameleon” , he’s a fun little character for any theme!  I actually added in the tongue and heart with some extras that Christy includes in the set, but he is just as cute without!  And with a slew of masculine cards coming down the pipes for me in the next couple of months, I love having a more masculine image in my collection!

Now, if the weather is beautiful where you are, I know you are anxious to get out and spend some time outside.  But when you come in, get those colouring tools out and join us on this hop.  Christy has got the blog all set up so you can link up and we can see your beautiful creations.  It’s a fun way for you to join right in!

Well, I heading back out – the rain is coming tomorrow so I need to make the most of it today!  Thanks for stopping by, and for more information on the hop, click here!
