3D Wednesday ~ warm my heart!



 
Good morning crafty friends!  It's a fun day over at My Creative Time...it's 3D Wednesday!  I love making cards and layouts, but love mixing it up with 3D projects too!  Today I have a fun little gift project to share with you!
 

 
First I cut the tea cup and saucer with  Cartridge at the largest size the would fit on a 12x12 paper.  Then I simply cut 9 of the small flowers from Flower Petal Dies.  To make the petal rounded, I used a medium size stylus and a mouse pad.  On the backside of the paper, you just roll around the stylus.

 
After cutting the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag I stamped the coffee bean from You Are Perk-fect Stamp with the "stamp off" method.  Then with full strength of ink on a stamp, I stamped the sentiment.

One more thing before I go...If you have been following me for a while, then you know I haven't been posting as much as usual.  My life has just become very busy lately which just doesn't allow me to do ALL that I want to do.  So in order to keep crafting (which I love) I have decided to give up my little boutique.  My boutique has been a lot of fun, however, it's very time consuming.  I have learned as I get older, to know when too much is really too much and this seemed like the logical thing to cut from my schedule.  I always love it when I hear from you, my customers, "thank you for your fast shipping!".  However, I'm afraid that I might not be able to keep up that pace.  Thank you so much for all of your support this past year!  So as a "thank you" I'm having a closing sale.  Use coupon code JULY13 to receive 25% off your entire purchase.  Hurry before it's all gone!  I hope you'll still continue to stop by my blog for fun projects!

Scrapping The Little Things ~ Best Friends!



Hi my paper lovin' friends!  Today I have a layout to share with you since it's Scrapping the Little Things over at My Creative Time.  The pictures in this layout are very special to me!  I took my youngest daughter to Old Sacramento for her casual Senior pictures along with 2 of her best friends.  At some point they got tired of it and started texting each other.  They totally forgot about me taking their pictures so they were so natural!  Yes, that's what teenage girls do, text each other while sitting right next to each other!

Dad Card!


Hi Paper Lovers, happy Thursday!  I know what you're thinking...she's posted two times this week!  I would love to be able to post times a week, but it's kind of like exercise...I don't want to over commit myself!  lol!  

I have a super quick card for you today that I made for Father's Day!  I do realize it has past, however I could see this being made for a birthday as well.

I used My Creative Time's lowercase fun letter dies, some itty bitty mustache stamps and a bit of ink to create this "clean and simple" card.  Did you know that CAS doesn't have to be boring!  You can use color if you keep the lines simple.



Since I love texture,  yet needed to keep this card masculine I did some stitching.  Not too much though :)

Tag It Tuesday! ~ The Best is yet to come!


Hi Everyone, welcome to My Creative Time's new feature called Tag-it Tuesday!  This is going to be an every other Tuesday event!  For this week, we were asked to use yellow, orange, and red as color palette.

I had a lot of fun making this cute little tag, that can easily be attached to a card base for a quick card!  I'm thinking that I should just get a ton made then have them on hand for future needs!


I used the Stitched Cartoon Cloud on the tag base, then backed it with a pattern paper!
