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.

Hampton Arts $1 stamp from Michaels

Yellow Glitter - Stickles
Markers - Copic
White Gel Pen - Uniball
Alphabet Stickers - Cosmo Cricket

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.
