Best Day Ever for a Challenge!


I made this card for the Card Challenge over at Craft Project Central! I used a couple of the Sale-A-Bration items - paper from the Best Year Ever DSP and the saying from the Best Day Ever stamp set.

And this is the sketch that I used! I love participating in Sketch Challenges - it does all the hard work for you... I chose the little piece of DSP that I wanted to use, and the colors all came together from there. Super fun and easy!

It's not too late for you to join the Card Challenge too - you can even win a FREE subscription over at Craft Project Central if you enter your card! Check it out HERE!

Book Box Card Set!

This is an easy and attractive way to store a set of cards on any desk or shelf. The card box is shaped like a book with two pockets inside. One pocket holds eight cards and the other pocket holds eight envelopes. The card set includes two card designs, four of each design. The book box is held closed with a ribbon tied into a bow. The box and cards are made with the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, and the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack. This would make a great card class, too.

All About that Easel Base!

Easels are easy, and they add interest (and convenience) to a variety of projects.  This ensemble features a handy calendar stand with a pocket for note paper that would dress up any desk.  There are two greeting cards—the first one features four easel panels to display four mini stamped creations—art and/or sentiment—and would make a pretty conversation piece.  The second card features a fun twisted easel.  Lastly, the generously-sized gift box (drawer style) has an attached greeting card with its own easel and a subtle, elegant decorative design.
