Clean & Simple Seahorses...

Jun 13, 2018
Hi ya peeps, summer is here and school it out! How many of you are going to visit the ocean?  The closest I get to a large body of water is Lake Superior! Today I have a clean and simple summer card to share with you using a cute die from Cheapo Dies.

I LOVE this die. It is detailed with crisp edges, perfect for clean and simple cards. This die is called Seahorses and is available now in the Cheapo Dies Store.
I layered my die cuts for a dimensional look and cut them apart. I used popup dots and some pretty wavy blue paper.  Don't forget to stop by daily for more inspiration from the Design Team and stop by the Facebook page to share your makes!  Happy crafting, Carolyn

Birdhouses...

Jun 7, 2018
Hi ya peeps! I am enjoying a sunny day and watching the birds return from their winter exile. My feeders and full and I love all my feathery little visitors. Today I am sharing a card using a neat stamp from
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps


This neat stamp is called Bird House Row and is available in the JFFRS store now. For my card, I wanted a lake front feel so I used a sky background paper and then added a wavy blue paper to simulate a lake in the background. I love how it turned out.

Hi ya peeps, as summer slowly rolls in I can't wait to be outside more and string up my outdoor lights so  I am sharing with you a cute card using a fab die from Cheapo Dies. 
This die is called Lanterns and is available now in the Cheapo Dies store.  The paper I used was a watercolor printed paper and I used the parth that had the colors of the sunset. I layered the cut outs for a more dimensional look and added a simple sentiment with coordinating ink.

Shake It...

May 23, 2018
Hi ya peeps! Today I am sharing a little shaker dashboard I made for a friend to celebrate her becoming a mom in the next month or so.
I used both pink and blue due to the fact that the parents want to be surprised! I used 2 dies in this shaker. The first die is called Giraffe and the second die is called I Dig You. I love being able to mingle different dies.  I feel that mixing dies just expands your creativity.
I used a photo pouch with four different sections, added my die cuts and then sequins. To seal them shut I used the Fuse tool but you could sew them closed as well. Just be sure to make your stitch length short and use your thinnest needle.
