Serene Inspiration

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired by today's post.  These are for a special order for "serene" cards.  They aren't quite as serene as I had hoped....purchased the paper pack online - so didn't realize the pretty pink patterns and subdued colors would be to "tea stained."  Hope the customer finds them serene!  Throwing in a coordinated storage box.

Scraps to Treasures - Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday!  It's Scraps-to-Treasures birthday month - and we are celebrating with a Birthday-themed linky party.

I have a fun birthday card to share - made for my 2-year-old nephew who is celebrating his birthday today with a John Deere theme.  I made a step card with a tractor in the background - embellished with a tree die-cut, a jeans 2, and a fun banner in the front.  Scroll down after the card to see a close-ups of the embellishments.

Onesie Manie

Morning, All!

Oh my word! My intentions of posting every day just is not happening. I’m determined to post catch up soon! Wish me luck! :)

For today’s project, I stepped out of my comfort zone.  For my daughter's baby shower, she sent out onesies with invites - and guests are asked to decorate the onesie.  So here is what my new grandson (who will be living in Michigan) will be wearing - thinking this may be an annual birthday gift....a new shirt every year.  :D

Last of the Green Animals

This is what I have worked on the past couple days - a baby shower card for my daughter.

The card is coordinated with the baby's name decor and scrapbook album . . . pictures below.

Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

Non-traditional Christmas colors is probably one of the biggest trends in the craft industry right now.  If you don't believe me, walk into any craft store and take a look. Different colors are everywhere - bold, fun, trendy.  I fell in love with this Christmas Paper Studio paper pad - but when I purchased it to make an order of Christmas cards - was not too sure.  I like the trendy colors - I only hope my customer does, as well!

My order requested ten Christmas cards - I know they are a gift for someone, so I used scraps to made a box for presentation.
