Children's Handmade Valentine Cards or Mini Gift Tags

These cute little 3x4 handmade cards are perfect for the kids valentines for their friends and my case they will be for all my nieces and nephews (yes I have quite a few!!!). I loved all the little sayings on these cards, Owl always love you, What a catch, Sew happy together, fun little quips that made me smile! This is a set of 24 cards, there is plenty to go around, and you can even use them as little tags on any little gifts you give out for Valentines. Check out my etsy shop if you're interested, you'll see them listed there!

Take care, till next time!!

Make a WISH

Here's a couple new cards that I'll be listing in my shop shortly. I loved this patterned paper the moment I saw it (just don't tell anyone it's actually Valentine's paper!) The rich creamy colours of the pink and green just go so well together.
There's a couple of different techniques used on these cards, embossing, die cutting, stamping and of course a few dabs of glitter to draw it all together.

Thanks again for looking, take care and I'll see you again soon.

Personalized Stationary......with a Monogram

Here's the finished product........what do you think? I love this one, and from corresponding with Victoria, this is what I felt from her. She said she loves micro glitter (like me!!) and if you love glitter, you gotta love swirls! So I incorporated glitter, her initials, some craft punches and a bit of pizzaz. I really hope she likes it.
I'll keep you posted!
If you interested in something custom for yourself, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love working on custom requests, and the ideas and uses for paper crafts are endless........books, party favors, wedding favors, stationary, gift bags, cards.........I could go on forever!
Thanks again for always looking at my creations! Stay warm!
Till next time,

I'm so Excited!!!

A wonderful lady found my etsy shop and purchased a couple of cards from me. I've emailed her back and forth a few times and she is one of the kindest people I have met. She was so wonderful with her comments on my cards, she said she had seen HUNDREDS of cards on Etsy (there really is hundreds are card sellers) and she thought that mine were the BEST she had seen......I was so overwhelmed, I actually blushed reading her email! She also left me some very very kind and wonderful feedback for my shop after she recieved her cards.

So now I am going to try and make personalized stationary for her! I have an idea in my head, and hope to have a prototype for her tomorrow, if I can find some time (maybe I won't do that load of towels tomorrow! hehe!!).

I'm so excited (did I mention that already?).

Take care,

Mini Thank You cards

Well I've finally been able to make a few cards, and I'm really excited about these ones. I've been waiting for all my new Stampin' Up! stamps to arrive and when they did, I knew this was the first little mini cards I would make! I love the colour of blue and chocolate brown and I incorporated that with the small curly stamps and punch, then added a little punched flower to top it off.
I'm gonna be listing these in my Esty shop shortly.

If you like what you see, please don't hesitate to contact me with any comments or custom requests.

I'm soooo looking forward to creating more lovelies with all my new stamps and punches and paper!

I've also been looking into a new stamping technique, called MCT. Right now I'm just searching for the correct paper to use and then I'll be posting all my new stuff here too......can't wait!!!

Take care,
