So happy it's Friday! Got a little overwhelmed with things this week and I'm so ready for the weekend! Just quickly popping in to share a birthday card that I made for the Jane’s Doodles blog:


I used a border stamp from the Easter Time set to create the background and some cardstock scraps I had laying around.

That's it for me! Thanks so much for stopping in today!
Enjoy your weekend!

Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters blog hop

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m honoured to be part of the fun Paper Crafts blog hop in celebration of the newest special issue, Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters!

Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters
I just love this issue, it is an incredible resource of amazing ideas and creating for it was such a fun challenge! For today's blog hop, five designers were asked to create five cards for under $5. Digital elements are always cheap and quick option so I went for the hybrid cards! Here is what I came up with using the Victoria Gardens Element Pack by Echo Park for $2.99, free Miami Font and a grid pattern created in MS Word document. I hope you will find here some inspiration for your own cards and you will have as much fun with creating as I do! 


Happy BirthdayThinking of YouHelloThank YouCongrats

Each stop will be doing a random draw for a copy of this special issue! Just leave me a comment on this post before Sunday, March 25 at midnight EST and I will pick a random winner on Monday, the 26th! And here are other stops on the hop:

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop! If you hoped here from Joy you are on the right track! If you missed any hops on the way here is the hop order:

--> Aga <--

Today our DT and amazing guest designers are showing the newest addition to the Jane’s Doodles collection. 3 new stamp sets and one of them is designed by our talented DT girl Mariana! How awesome is that?! She will be designing stamps for Jane’s Doodles and her first set is called “Easter Time”. The other two sets are called “You’re a hoot!” and “Tooth Fairy Klara” and with every purchase of the Tooth Fairy set, $1 dollar will be donated to a fabulous cause Caylin's Cure A Fundraiser for Hope (this also applies to the digi image).

Now onto my cards!  Unfortunately my stamps haven't arrived yet and I wasn't able to make a card using those new released sets, so instead I created a few cards using digital images. Here’s my hybrid Easter set, just clean and simple:

happy easter set

I used a graphic program to invert and colour the images:

Don't forget to leave a comment on every blog along the way for a chance to win all three new stamp sets released today! Your next stop is Courtney, I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Thanks for hopping by and have a great weekend!

Runway Inspired Challenge #7

It’s been such a long time since I created/posted anything. I seem to have lost my mojo, has anyone seen it? I would like it back! Lol! Anyway, I’m happy it’s Tuesday and time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! If you are like me looking for an inspiration check out this amazing outfit from Anna Sui:


 And here is what I came up with:


To create this faux letterpress look I coloured the raised side of an embossing folder (wood grain by Tim Holtz) with red ink and embossed it on pink cardstock. The flower element by BG was printed in blue and covered with glossy accents although it's not easy to see it in the photo.

This week’s sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and there’s $15 gift certificate to the lucky winner.  Make sure you pop over to the Runway Inspired blog to play along!  Here is some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT girls:
