Less Is More 369

The theme for Less Is More 369 is bring something back.   I took out a Darice embossing folder I had sitting in my stash for a long time and some Studio G stamps from Michaels that were pretty lonely. With all the new stuff I have picked up lately, it was interesting to rifle…

sympathy cards (set)

Sympathy cards. One of the hardest types of cards to make. They have to be both specific and general. They have to be serious, but not morbid. Heartfelt (non-generic) sentiments are difficult (you can’t make puns or other types of jokes or word play). Themes can be tricky because though someone may have loved trains…

These are some of my favourite cards I made for this holiday season: These ones feature spray-inked stripes for a background and wooden Scrabble-style tiles: This one is for Emma: Whipped spackle dots, snowflakes stamped in gesso and a brick embossing folder ftw!

holidays 2017 – gift card holders

Here are some gift card holders I made this holiday season: This one has a small handmade envelope on the inside: These ones are just some envelopes I made with pretty paper: I like how these embossed large tags turned out: The photo doesn’t do them justice, but these small presents made with the new…

holidays 2017 – embossed cards

I made so many card this year and haven’t shared any of them here. In fact, I haven’t posted to Instagram in about a week. So in an effort to start a 2018 resolution early, here is a blog post! This one is going to feature my favourite type of card that I made this…

Halloween is a time to celebrate for me and I love any excuse to make spooky crafts. Here are some cards I have made so far this year: This one was sent to Switzerland to a dA friend:     I love how the embossing looks on this recycled packing:      

wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

bunch o cards

A family member requested ten general-purpose greeting cards. I was a bit pressed for time so they are on the simple side of things, but sometimes basic is alright. My favourite I think is this cactus one. Sure they are probably soon on their way out trend-wise but they are still cute. I took out…

new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

girly birthday memory album

I put together this album for the 2nd birthday of my friend’s daughter. I love this paper (DCWV Confetti collection) and was super excited to make a project bigger than a card with it. Of course, I did make a matching card to go with it though… 🙂 Here’s a slideshow of the inside:  …

penguin family card

I had a request for a card with animals – two parents and two babies. I don’t have a lot of animals in my stash so it was off to a big box craft supply store for me. I stood in the sticker aisle, conflicted. It felt like the most difficult choice I had to…
