Looking Back In Time

Good morning crafty friends ~ Today's card fits perfectly in to the challenge going on over at Double D Challenges, Looking Back In Time.


I just recently got this lovely vintage scroll die from Dies R Us and it just happens, that you can win this very set when you join in on the challenge.

I'm not in it to win it but I thought it would be fun to share the card that I made using the set so you could be further inspired to join in on their challenge.

I haven't joined in on any challenges in a long time but this one will be entered in to the following challenges:

Spellbinders January Card Kit

Good morning friends~  I've got lots of cards for you today that I made using the Spellbinders January Card Kit.  
This is my second card kit from them and I must say that I am so impressed by the amount of supplies you get for the price.  This card kit literally has everything you need to make so many amazing cards, including card bases, envelopes, die cuts, dies, stamps, embellishments and adhesives!!  I have 9 cards here but there are enough supplies to make so many more.  This is a picture heavy post so sit back with your favorite beverage and be inspired.

I should also tell you that while I was out running errands on Tuesday, I stopped by Goodwill and came across this set of "Thank You" cards with coordinating envelopes for $1.00.  They are good quality cards and I thought the designs were trendy and it would be easy enough to cover the thank you greeting.  
So these are the card bases I used for all of my cards and  I have all the card bases from the kit still in my stash to use later.

The colors all went together so perfectly!


This card uses some of the glittery alphabet sticker letters that are included in the kit.


I used one of the many dies that are in the kit.  This typewriter is so fun and has a slit in the top so you can insert a stamped message.  The paper die is included too.

I thought this elephant was crazy cute blowing love all around!



I hope you're inspired by the cards I made using this kit.  You can find all the details on this kit as well as all the other kits that Spellbinders offers HERE.

  All these cards will be sent to Cards for Little Hearts, an organization very near and dear to my heart.  They're having a collection of heart themed cards to help lift the spirit of children living with congenital heart disease.  The deadline is January 31st if you'd like to send some cards along.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month ~ December

Hello friends ~ I'm kick starting the year off with a new to me Spellbinders Card Kit of the month.  I've been looking for a card kit that included lots of quality products and this monthly kit from Spellbinders fit's the bill! 

Each kit includes stamps, dies, designer paper, cardstock and enough supplies to create at least 10 cards (that's what they say) but I'll get a lot more than 10 cards out of this kit.  

Eeeep!  Is this polar bear cute or what??  The kit came with a preprinted polar bear and a polar bear die to create you own.  I used the die on this card.

There were lots of sweet, pre-printed tags included in the kit, each with lovely copper foiling.  

Everything you see on these cards was included in the kit!

If you're looking for a kit that includes everything you need, then check out the kits from Spellbinders.

Vintage Ice Skate Ornament Box ~ Dies R Us Challenge~ Anything Goes

Hello and Happy New Year!  Are you tired of seeing these ornament boxes yet?  I enjoyed making so many of them and just have to share them with my friends.  So today's ornament box is for the new challenge going on over at Dies R Us, where the theme is "Anything Goes".
I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Ice Skate to make this vintage inspired ornament box.  

I cut the skate out of light blue cardstock and then covered it with a healthy dose of Silk Microfine Glitter in cool white, also from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
