I love this stamp so much, it‘s so sweet. I thought it would make a great "hi" card for my step-sister. I used Unity’s “your wings exist” (again, so sweet) then colored it with scholar prismacolor colored pencils. The stamp on the envelope was a gift and I have no idea who it's by. I went over the dots on her dress with a Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic pen. Added a little distressing with Tim Holtz’s distress inks in “tumbled glass” and “peeled paint” and was done. Really simple, but a “sweet” way to say hi.

Dog Daze


We really love dogs at my house and so do our friends and family, so I made a few doggie albums for our furred friends. I didn’t use doggie paper for all of them, but I made sure to take into account the personalities of both the dog and the owner. These are so easy, just cut chipboard a little over 4x6 and cover it or paint it. Then cut some cardstock at 4x6. Trim a little off your 4x6 pictures, add them and you're done. I put two of these together with my “bind it all” and the other one with binder rings. So easy and yet so cute.


I made these cards for my brother-in-law for Christmas last year. If you have your own wine connoisseur these are really quick and easy to make. I used Daisyds’ “Holly Winter Blue“ paper cut with Tim Holtz‘s On the Edge “Ornate” and distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I used Michael’s rub-ons, cut them out and accented them with Sakura Gelly Roll “Clear Star” pen and Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze #800 pen. Quick, easy and lots of fun to both give and to make.
