A quick and easy Thank You card using Maggie Holmes Crate Paper

I made this card using Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection.  I used the chipboard cutouts as well as the 6 x 6 paper pad.  I love the variety of shapes included in the chipboard ephemera.

You can get your Maggie Holmes collections from WhimseyGirl,  Tell her Lorrie sent you! .

Pink Paislee Freebies to go with the Epiphany Studio Square 25 Tool

I have been having so much fun creating squares and rounds to fit the Epiphany Crafts tools!  If you haven't added these fun tools to your stash, I suggest you put it on your wish list!  It's a perfect way to add your own flair to any scrapbook layout, card, jewelry, etc.  To see the various Epiphany Crafts tools in action check out the Epiphany Crafts blog!  There are so many great ideas, your head will be spinning with possibilities!

I contacted Pink Paislee and asked if I could use their fun digital products to create a few freebies for you.  Rebecca from Pink Paislee very graciously said "YES!".   Pink Paislee has so many fun digital items on their website.   Check out all the awesome downloadable Pink Paislee items HERE.

To download the Pink Paislee artwork above which fits with the Studio Square 25 tool by Epiphany Crafts, click HERE.  I have made them just slightly bigger than the 25MM cutout to alleviate any paper bleed around your cutout.  I made a fun necklace with the orange flower above and have had requests for two more.

Have a great day!  My daughter is getting married on Saturday, so I'll see you later! ;)

Hello Card / Maggie Holmes Crate Paper


My daughter's wedding is less than a week away!!!  I can't even believe it!  Every spare moment I have is spent going over check list, shopping, or making plans.  Today, I took a quick break and sneaked into my craft room for a little creative therapy.  I love making cards when I need a creative fix, but don't have a lot of time.

I made this simple 5x5 card using the Maggie Holmes Crate paper line.  If you haven't picked up this line, you need to!  It is chalked full of ready made embellishments that go together flawlessly with the papers.   You can get the Maggie Holmes products at WhimseyGirl's website.   I used the 6x6 paper pad along with the chipboard embellishments to complete this card.  The butterfly is a Heidi Swapp Color Magic piece which I misted with Mustard ColorShine.

Well I'm off to check my checklists..... (Licence-check, shoes-check, tulle-check..........).

Thanks for looking.

Wedding plans!

II am so excited.  In a little over a week, my daughter is getting married! It is going to be a beautiful day. We are having an intimate backyard wedding followed by a fun open house reception.  Even though we are going "casual" for this wedding, i wanted to add a few special touches.  I decided to make keepsake charms for the bouquet and boutineer. 

For Her bouquet I used the Epiphany Craft Round 25 tool along with the charms. I added a photo to one charm and on the other i added their initials and wedding date. A little silver heart charm finished it off. 

For his boutineer I added a picture of his grandpa who was very dear to him.  
I used the Epiphany Crafts Square 25 tool and charm for the photo.  

I think this little personal touch really adds a little magic and love to each piece.

Happy Birthday Card

I haven't had a lot of time for scrapping lately.  My daughter is getting married in 3 weeks.  We've had shower planning, wedding planning, shopping, exchanging and lots of planning.  I did manage to whip up a two cards this afternoon.  I like cards because they are generally pretty quick.

For this card I focused on the Maggie Holmes line.  I love the soft yet vibrant feel of this line.  I used my Epiphany Crafts round tool for this card.  I have been using it on nearly every project. 

You can purchase all of the items required to make this card from WhimseyGirl.  She has all of Maggie Holmes products and will soon be getting her new line in stock!  I can't wait!
