Summer Wreath

In honor of recently having the first day of summer I wanted to share with you a simple summer wreath.

The rosettes were created using the Tim Holtz medallion die and fun bright patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs.  The center medallions are attached using the Best Glue Ever.

Thanks for looking!

Father's Day Cards!

Happy June everyone, can't believe this year is already almost half way over. And soon Father's Day will be here so I wanted to share with you a few cards I made using some fun laser cut tools to make some awesome and unique Father's Day Cards.

All these cards feature the mini laser cut wood tool set from Unique Laser Designs.  Aren't they fun!

On this card I used metal brads that look like screws, I've had them forever and finally had the perfect project to use them on.

I cut the tool belt from a piece of canvas and distressed it with some Tim Holtz distress ink.   I just winged it when I cut it, I didn't measure anything on this one.

And finally here's a close up of the tool box, this one is my favorite.  I searched for a pattern to make a tool box shaped card so I had to create my own from scratch.  I think it turned out pretty well.

A peak at the inside shows a little shelf I made for the inside that holds all the little tools.

Thanks for looking and Happy Father's Day!

You Are A Star Card

Hey Everyone, sorry for being missing in action for a bit but I'm coming back from a much needed blogging vacation. But I'm back and have some great new projects to share with you this month. My latest project is a simple card that is quick, easy and versatile.

To make this card I used two pieces of patterned paper, stickers and 5 small laser cut stars.  I left the stars unfinished for this first take, I think they are nice just the way they are. And if you swap out the color of the paper for a blue or green, you'd have a nice simple masculine card.

Or you could add a little bling to the stars by adding stickles or glitter to them to make them little more feminine.  Either way it's a great simple card that could be used for a variety of occasions.
