Wildcard Wednesday – Falling Flowers Card

Hello there.  Hope your week is going well, it’s only a few days till the weekend.  You can do it!!!  You can also do this technique that I used on this card.  I was just playing with the Glossy cardstock and wanted to see what it could do.  This is the result I came up with.  Hope you like it.  🙂

Monday Makes – A Beautiful Bouquet

Hello and welcome.  I have a lovely floral card to share with you today and I have to say it was a tonne of fun making it.  Just love the bundle (meaning the stamp set and dies) as I feel that the Beautiful Bouquet are really paired well together.  Sometimes I look at stamp sets and dies or punches for that matter and wonder…do I need them both?  Can I get away with fussy cutting or is it really necessary?  Well, remember my silly thinking with the Lemon Punch?  I am happy to announce that I did not make the same mistake with this set.  I got the bundle and I am soooo glad I did.  Check out the project for today.

Fabricate Friday – A Funky Triangle Box

So let me tell you a story.  I have a wonderful friend named Lee.  She is very helpful and she is very kind.  One day she came into get her hair done and was so proud to give me a box.  It was really unusual but looked amazing and she said it was from a Chocolate shoppe in Las Vegas.  I was totally impressed and was excited to open it and receive a Las Vegas Chocolate.  Alas, there was no chocolate…none.  She had eaten it but saved me a box so I can remake it for you.  I shall now console you for not having a chocolate as well.  I hope your disappointment will fade as mine did when I discovered how really cool this build is.  PS Lee, if you are reading this.  Please don’t bring a chubby girl a chocolate box without a chocolate…this diet is killing me.

On with the show…

Wildcard Wednesday – First day!

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping in.  Today is the first day of my new Wednesday card video series.  I know a few of you will be disappointed that I am not sharing an Art Video, but it’s already August and I honestly haven’t had time this year to create in my Art Journal.  Not with trying to balance career and my “jobby” here.  With the start of the Email club a few months ago, and the Online card classes plus my admin work on several Facebook groups…there isn’t a lot of extra time just to play.  However, I am not saying I won’t ever do another one, but for now I am filling Wednesdays up with cards!  I know quite a few of you will be happy.  If you enjoy Monday Makes then Wildcard Wednesday is up your alley.

I have decided to produce more content in an attempt to inspire more people more often, and to hopefully have a farther reach across the country.  I don’t know if you know this but I am unable to host workshops in my home as it is too small.  Many demonstrators I know have club nights and craft workshops and I am at a loss because I just can’t do it.  I have 2 avenues in which to gain customers, I ask people to host the workshops in their homes or I can put a lot of content up on the inter webs in hopes to gain a nice customer base.  95% of my customers are online now and I do very much appreciate them and really try hard to earn their business.  So that is my plan with this new video series.  I shall endeavor to create and produce more inspiration and really work hard for those customers.

This is the card I am sharing today.  It’s “art journal” inspired and I love it.
