Sentimental Sundays #17 - Words to Inspire

The new challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is "Words to Inspire - Inspiring Words". I love this challenge and wanted to make sure that my sentiment was the focal point of my card.





I found directions on how to make this fun lace flower at Honeybeehill. It was a little difficult with the crocheted lace but I will definitely try it again using traditional lace or even ribbon. I found the button in my stash of buttons from my Grandmother's sewing supplies.

I hope you will join us this week for the Sentimental Sundays "Words to Inspire" challenge. Remember the only rules are that you need to use a sentiment on your card and follow the theme. You can use any supplies from your stash to create your project but if you would like you can use the free sentiments on the Sentimental Sundays blog created by the talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs .

Thank you for looking!

Challenges:


Supplies:

  • Images: Treasures from CTMH
  • Papers & CS: CTMH Perfect Day paper pack, misc. white, SU Chocolate Chip CS
  • Inks: CTMH Tulip & Chocolate
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spell Binders Labels 1, Martha Stewart edge punch. needle & thread
  • Embellishments: misc. lace & button, Kaiser half peals

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
