Thankful Digital Papers

Hi, Everyone! 

I get so excited every time I print out digital papers from We Are 3...every paper I'm currently using is my favorite!!!!  This collection is no exception!  The Thankful Collection is made up of gorgeous autumn colors and pumpkins.  I simply love this collection, as it reminds me of my favorite season - pretty much what I miss most after moving from the Midwest to the Southwest.
Here is a second card made with leftovers.
Here is a link to the We Are 3's Etsy shop so you can take a closer look at all the gorgeous papers available.

I hope you'll download some fun papers from We Are 3!  It's fun to have more control over papers you want to use - design size, color saturation, printing as needed.  We would love to see what you all create with We Are 3 digital papers - please feel free to share y our creations with us through the We Are 3 Facebook Page
We Are 3 Digital Paper, Thankful

Father's Day Loving Cup

Hello! Here with a gag gift using the fun Father's Day Loving Cup as a prize.  My hubby's golf buddy has his son visiting - and it appears there's a friendly competition between the two David boys when it comes to golfing.  My hubby asked me to make a trophy he can award the winner of their next outing.  This was fun to make!

Mystery Item Folder

Today I'm excuted to share with you my card for a SALSA Mystery Item Swap.  The Mystery Item was the folder.  I added the label "To-Do List."  My plan was to have papers inside the folder that could be pulled out and read with messages about keeping in touch - however, I couldn't keep the papers inside - so instead I used them as a small embellishment.  Background paper is We Are 3 Ladybug Lace...I added a watercolor texture from Design Bundles.

Special Release: Tea Time

I'm back with another card using Tea Time.

We Are 3 Ladybugs - Lace and Garden

For the card I want to share with you today, I used Raindrops On Roses (Heartfelt Creations) to extend a small square to create an A2 card.  The layers are distressed with glitter beads added to match the glittered flowers.  For papers, I used Ladybug Lace and Bird Songs - flowers are Ladybug Garden - all new releases from We Are 3.

Photos below show detail of the card - glitter and dimension.

Be sure to visit We Are 3 for these beautiful papers and images.

We Are 3 Special Release

Tea Time is the latest great release from We Are 3. It is absolutely beautiful and can be used for so many occasions.  I absolutely adore the Vintage Tea Cups available - I know you are going to love them, too!

For my card today, I used three of the papers in the collection - Flower Petals, Tea Stains, and Cloudy Skies.  The tea cups and pearls were colored using Gimp and cut out using my Sizzix eClips.  When I color/cut digital files, I usually fill up a sheet with the image in various sizes for quick card making.  I took extra pearls from some of the images I had cut and used them to accent the card.  I then added transparent sequins.

Sketchy Inspiration

Today I'm sharing inspiration from CAS(E) this SKETCH!  I just adore any opportunity I have to use my Table Scraps.  Sketch #222 was the perfect inspiration for these fun strawberries and some leftover papers from We Are 3.

Special Release

Hello!  I'm so excited to share my third card featuring Tea Time. I had so much fun making this pop-up card with a bird cage and bird.

Let's start at the bottom of the card and work our way up.  All background papers are from the newest Release Tea Time (We Are 3).  The focal point is from Bird Cage Silhouette from Raccoon Girl Design (Etsy).  The flower is Delicate Asters (Heartfelt Creations) - with leaves from Romantic Garden - with a bird from Bird Cage Silhouette.

What an exciting surprise inside!  Pops up a bird cage and bird using a pattern from Robert Sabuda.  This is the perfect way to create a gorgeous card for a special someone! 

Be sure to take a look at the New June Releases for We Are 3.  You will see all the new papers and images for June.  Also visit their Facebook Page to see how our Design Team members use new products.

For Old Time's Sake

While cleaning out my craft room a while back, I came across the very first scrapbook layout I made about 12 years ago.  My dear hubby was under the impression I wanted to scrapbook, so surprised me with about $300 of supplies....the surprise was that I thought that was a rather stupid hobby!  The big surprise came later....since we were newlyweds and in a way he was "listening" to me (i used to make a lot of sarcastic remarks about wanting to retire and scrapbook), I didn't want to hurt his feelings and decided to take some classes.  OMG - it didn't take long for my excitement level to rise during these introductory classes!

So I found my first layout - and since the aim of cleaning was to get rid of stuff, I pondered what to do with this first layout.  I decided to case the layout for each of my grandson's scrapbooks.  This is my first case.

Special Release - We Are 3

Welcome back to We Are 3's Release!  Get that cup of tea and check out today's design . . .

. . .  It's Tea Time!  The lovely pastel colors define this collection.  This card is quick and easy - the frame is one part of the collection - just cut out the center and pop up for dimension.  Gimp is my favorite media for coloring - so I colored the image for yesterday's card - and print and cut several in different sizes - making this card even quicker!  So take some time out today with that cup of tea and browse through the fun paper collections and images at We Are 3.
