Ahhhh Retirement ...

Speaking personally, it's the best! 

A friend recently asked me to make her a card for her hubby who will be retiring imminently ... he likes books and cats and I think this card offered that up perfectly! I used a bunch of different stamp sets and embellishments from all over!

Enjoy your day!

Sweet As Honey

 I think this has been my most favourite paper suite in ages ... I simply adore it.

Here is a card I worked on with it. The Sweet As Honey Cardmaking kit is temporarily unavailable but is expected back in stock some time this month.

Enjoy your day!

Udderly Cute!

 The Udderly Wonderful stamp set is darling and it pairs up well with the Barn Door Stamp set. I also used the Circle Shaker Window Thin Cuts set for the background circle.

Enjoy your day!

Woodland Critter Huggers

A friend recently introduced me to these lovely critters and I got the set of dies for Christmas. I've had such fun playing with them. This was made for a friend to give to her hubby. I used a retired Stamp of the Month for the sentiment. The Mini Envelope Thin Cut is still available. The Hearts banner was made with a retired Hearts Border Thin Cuts set. Also used Red Stickles.

Some of the other critters I've made, waiting for their final homes once I decide what to do with them, haha!

Enjoy your day!

Another Valentine's Card

Can one ever have too many ideas for inspiration? Thank you to Erica Edney for getting me into the craft room to create this card from a card sketch.

Anyway, here is the end result which was fun to put together.

I used the Smitten Stamp set which is only available until the end of this month (Feb 2022) and it comes with or without Thin Cuts. I also used the Card Front Stencil Pack 1 with Candy Apple ink. The background is stamped with Candy Apple ink full strength and then stamped 2nd generation. The very cute Koala is coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. The piece the sentiment is stamped on with Black ink is from the Square Windows Slimline Thin Cuts.

Enjoy your day!

Welcome to New Home


A card I made to welcome a friend to their new home, used the retired Stamp of the Month from last year as well as our Stitched Rectangle Frames Thin Cuts. This card made me happy and happily, it made the recipient happy too! The cat is from my stash and finished the card perfectly.

Enjoy your day!

Valentine's is Coming Soon!

 Hello all,

Here is a card I made recently that I love ... a slimline card that fits into a business size envelope using our wonderful CTMH supplies! I hope it inspires you to make a card too!

I used the Hearts Slimline Thin Cuts, the Mini Envelope Thin Cut, the Slim Alphabet Thin Cuts, and a retired Stamp of the Month for the sentiment and hands (still love this set!). I also used various inks for the background under the Hearts Slimline Thin Cut. The XOXO is mounted on Vellum.

Enjoy today!
