I received an email and was asked to review the product. Once I looked at the company's website I knew right away I'd love that opportunity. I sent in a picture and within a weeks time I had my canvas print. I've never had one done, but it came out quite well. It looks similar to a painting and I love having this hanging up. Here is a photo of the one I was sent, the link to the company is on my sidebar.

PLEASE NOTE: I was NOT paid by Easy Canvas Prints for my review. They sent me a custom canvas to review and this is my honest feeling regarding the quality.
It's friday!!! TGIF :) Day 5 is here! I hope you've had a chance to follow along all week and make some cards. I would love to see them, please send a link to me if you made some so I can take a peek!

- I apologize I didn't measure these papers before I glued them on. Sometimes I get so into my card making, my hands take over!

Step 1 is to glue your first pattern paper down. Glue this all the way to the left side (where the fold is)

The next pattern is a full one. Once you have a rectangle cut, round two corners then glue this piece all the way to the right (where the card opens) in the middle of the orange piece.

On the small green piece, before it's glued on take a white gel pen and do a double line of stitching on the top and bottom. You can also do real stitching, I just am not that talented!

Once the white gel pen is dry (this takes a few minutes, careful, if its wet it WILL smudge), glue the green piece down right down the center of the card.

Last is to put your 3D embellishment down onto the green piece. I used this vampire guy. Again, you can use any sentiment you'd like, but I left  mine blank until I know who the recipient will be.

Did you enjoy this week? I hope so! I'm thinking of doing another tutorial week in the fall for christmas cards. I can't wait to see the cards you've made!
Today is thursday, were almost to the end of the week. The card today is super easy, there are only a few steps.

Simple supplies today
- Star Paper 3 X 2 1/2
- Green 3 1/4 X 2 1/4
- Black 2 X 2 1/2
- White 1 3/4 X 2 1/4

Each patterned piece is going to be layered and adhered. Round all the top corners of each piece. Once layered, add the ribbon to the bottoms, where the layers meet.

If you'd like a title to the card add that. I used Thickers to add "hi". Put your 3D embonlishment on, I choose this little frankenstein. He's silly and perfect for a kids card.

That was effortless right? Good! See you tomorrow :)
Thank you for coming back for day 3! I hope you liked the first two cards and are looking forward to making another.

I did decide to add one more thing to the card that isn't in the picture - buttons!
- Black Piece 3 X 2 1/2
- Orange 3 1/2 X 3
- Green 1/2 X 4 (two pieces)

Step 1 - Using a corner rounder (I use a corner chomper) round the top two corners of the orange plaid paper. Adhere to card. Then adhere the black plaid right underneath it. Both pieces are straight, just the picture makes them look a bit off ;)

Second, glue on the two green strips. Leave a small space inbetween them so the orange shows thru.

Last step is to thread the buttons (if you choose to) and glue those on. Add your 3d Embellishment, I chose the glittery cat. Final touch is faux stitching with a white gel pen around the orange piece only. If you would like you can stamp (or print) a sentiment. I stamped Trick or Treat and glued that to the black strip.

There we go! Another cute, fast, easy card. Hope to see you on Card # 4!
Happy Tuesday! I'm so glad you decided to come back for another simple tutorial! Were using up those scraps and making some great halloween cards at the same time!

For day 2 I decided to do a little more "full" card. You can always leave out a few embellishments if you prefer the clean look.

Supplies spread out when I began:
Very few things right?! I love how cards can use up your extra's that you'd just toss or hoard.
Again, the dimensions work for my card but you can easily adjust them for any size card.
- Orange Paper is 3X4
- Purple is 2 X 1 1/2
- The white piece is a journal box that I trimmed down.

The first step has a few "mini steps" inside. I'll post the picture then explain :)
I adhered the orange pattern to the entire card, centering it so a small amount of white showed on each side. Then on the journal box I put all 3 brads on (using my cropadile) and adhered the blue glitter letters to spell "Hi". I wanted a generic, seasonal card this time.

Next adhere the purple piece (I used a swiss dot pattern) right above the journal box. I made the width match so it would line up nicely.

The final result! The last step is to add your embellishment, I chose the little zombie girl. I thought she was cute rather then scary.
Yeah it's monday!! I know, you don't hear that often huh? Well I love mondays :) Here is our first tutorial for our Make A Card Week (MACW). Any questions let me know, I'll do my best to answer.

Here are the supplies I used. Including a plain white, pre-folded card.
Once those are gathered I cut the pieces into the following sizes. Feel free to adjust depending on the overall size of the card you want to make.
- Scallop Circle 1 1/2 inches
- Circle 1 inch (punch)
- Stripe Paper 3 1/2 X 2 Inches

Step 1: Emboss the white card if desired. I like the look of this! Then adhere the striped pattern piece over the bottom 1/2 of the card.

Step 2: Adhere ribbon over the seam where the striped paper meets the white card. Let Dry well.

Last Step - Glue White circle to scallop circle. Adhere 3D embellishment in the middle. I used the cute purple owl here. Then adhere entire circle to the card, leaving a small part of it hanging off the edge.

You can then add a stamp for a sentiment if you'd like. Since I'm not sure who I'm sending this to I didnt add one yet :)

Pretty Easy huh? Hope you enjoyed this and will come back tomorrow for Card #2!
I know we all love to make cards right? But it can get costly, I find I can easily spend $5-6 per card on supplies. This entire tutorial week is how to make an entire week of cards with your leftovers. Each tutorial has instructions and step by step pictures. I attempted a video but that didnt turn out well with my dog in the room (he was "talking" too much!). Monday will be the first one so stay tuned!

Here is the stash I'm using. It's from last years K&Co Spooktacular Collection. The 12X12 paper pad and the pack of 3D embellishments. I had these leftover from making my layouts and I know this year I will want new stuff. Don't we always? So instead of throwing this out I made my cards out of it.
The only other things I used:
- Ribbon
- Buttons
- Adhesive

All of which I had on hand. I'd love to see what you make this week, if any of my cards inspire you. I tried to make them user friendly so everyone from beginner to experienced can make these. They are a bit 3D and bumpy because.. that's my style :)

My mini album for this was really fun to make. My chlidren always inspire me, but since the beach is a favorite place of ours, this was especially fun.
The Front Cover was inked with distress ink to make a "sky" appearance.


I hope you enjoyed my mini album. Please visit the rest of the girls on the blog hop and see their amazing work!
Good Morning Everyone! I just love the creative cuts diecuts, so my project for today was this little adorable Square Box. I wanted a small box that I could decorate on my own for a little gift. This was perfect. So I made the box, added the ribbon and my favorite birthday stamp. It was easy to make and will make my gift look that much better.

Stamps: Hero Arts
Markers - Copic

Hope you enjoyed this, have a great day :)
Hi Everyone! I wanted to post to let you know I have happily joined the Creative Cuts Design Team! I really love what they offer and am thrilled to be apart of it. The Slash Pocket Card came to me at the perfect time. My best friend is having a birthday. Since she is a bright, bubbly person I thought that is how I would make this to match. I loved this card, it's different from a traditional card and so fun!

Then for the inside I wanted to make it look like the birdie was wishing her the birthday greeting so I stamped him, colored him in and drew a word bubble.

My photo

Hello :) I'm Danielle, in my 30's and truly enjoy a crafty life. When I have free time I love to create with paper, vinyl, wood, paint - really anything I can get my hands on. I've been crafting since I was 5 (all thanks to my fabulous mom!), when I joined a weekly girls craft club in town. Wow, did that ever change my life! The wheels of creativity are always going. I see things for what they can be, instead of what they are now. My blog is my creative playground, the place I go to let my imagination run.
