Happy Anniversary Card

Happy Thursday! So as you may know, I subscribe to the Freckled Fawn embellishment kit. I absolutely love Freckled Fawn and their products. This month's kit is really adorable, but I will admit that I immediately knew that this kit would be a challenge for me to use. The main reason is that the kit has a lot of pink products. I don't normally use a lot of pink in my projects and usually when I do, it's for Valentine's Day cards and layouts.

I was inspired by this month's sketch challenge and the Washi Die Cutting technique. Instead of making a heart shape, I just decided to make a "die cut" circle. To make my circle, I used my Simple Stories circle crop and then used a pencil and a X-acto knife. You could also use a die cutting machine as well. After making the circle, I used some washi strips from the washi book to cover the entire base of my card and then cut the excess strips off. I also used my X-acto knife to cut out the strips that covered the circle. To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment and adhered the white glitter bow to the top.

Supplies Used:
  • X-acto Knife
  • Pencil
  • Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tape Runner

Do you subscribe to Freckled Fawn? What did you think of this month's kit?

Feminist Greeting Cards

Happy Wednesday! Last weekend, I made some handmade greeting cards.

I wanted to make some feminist greeting cards and decided to use one of my favorite stamp sets. The Lady Stamp Set from Rukristin is perfect for making feminist greeting cards and other projects. I decided to keep the cards clean and simple. I just used black ink and then stamped the words onto the cardstock. I plan on making a few more card sets as well as some individual cards for my shop.

Supplies Used:
  • Cardstock
  • Black Ink

Currently List

Happy Tuesday and Happy Valentine's Day! It's time for another Currently List.

Watching: John and I have been watching all of the Harry Potter movies. We have never watched any of the movies. We just finished watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. We loved it. I can see why everyone loves the Harry Potter movies.

Reading: I'm catching up on emails and blog posts.

Listening: I love this song. It's one of my favorite songs by Lady Gaga.

Making: I have a few Valentine's Day cards that I have to make. I may also make a few other cards as well. I've been thinking about making custom cards as well.

Feeling: I think one of the worst phone calls you can ever get is from your children's school. My youngest son was not feeling well at school so we went to the doctor. Luckily everything is ok and he just has to take some medicine. Thank goodness he didn't have the flu.

Planning: I need and want to start working on some paintings. I'm also planning on buying a few watercolor books.

Loving: Pringles are the best.
