Birthday Card for a Friend

Well there is no happy mail today but I have been back in the craft room. This is a birthday card that I created for a very good friend. Purple is her favorite color as well as butterflies.

I used materials from Create & Craft USA. They had a great deal on specialty card stock. The designs as well as butterflies were created from dies by Sue Wilson of Creative Expression. I had so much fun making this card and it was super easy to create.

Happy Mail from Create and Craft

Well the happy mail just keeps rolling in. In this video, I emailed in to say hi and my email was read live on Create & Craft. I was lucky enough to win another card. 

This card is made by Dawn Wheeler. I love all of the fabulous cards she demonstrates on C&C. She is very talented and comes up with some very unique designs for cards. 

Check out the video below and see the demo card I received in the mail.

Happy Mail from Create & Craft USA

I sent an email to Jinger Adams and guest Nikki Payne of Create and Craft USA. They read my email on air and I even won the beautiful card that Nikki made on the show. It looks so pretty in person.

Gorjuss Girls Tissue Box

I'm on a tissue box kick and it was a lot of fun creating this one. I used a decoupage card kit for the box. The backing paper is the card blank that I cut and the images are layered which gives it lots of dimension. I only used items that were in the card kit.

Happy Mail, Happy Mail

I attended the Crafting & Conversation with Stephanie Weightman Webinar that was sponsored by Create & Craft US on Friday.  The webinar was a fun-filled talk and behind the scenes information session.

Stephanie Weightman is the creator of Tattered Lace. Tattered Lace is a line of paper crafting products, more specifically wafer thin dies, embossing folders and even a magazine. The designs are fun, frilly and lacy. With each magazine you receive a free die set. The magazine is dedicated to helping you get the most of your dies. You can use your die as is or you can cut into your dies to create different shapes.

I got a great surprise in the mail. Those who attended the webinar received a free gift. It's a bow maker. In the kit I received the bow maker, white organza ribbon and complete instructions. Now anyone can make beautiful bows in minutes. Below is a picture of the free give and also three different bows that I created.
