Valentines In Review

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! I just love creating cards for this lovey dovey holiday. In this post I will share some of the other cards I made and a special surprise.  OK, first the surprise! We had some extra cards and sent them to our local sports radio station. I am a regular listener to 710 am ESPN radio. Love it! So my hubby and I thought it would be a fun idea to send some cards to the various hosts. We were hoping they would enjoy personally using our cards for their loved ones.

Well, sent the cards and was just wishing maybe someone would at least send us a thank you by way of Twitter or email. Boy, did we get more than that. On Valentine's Day, a friend emailed me to say, "U are on the radio!" I was like what? So glad she heard it because I missed it. Take a listen. (Listen around the 12:30 mark) 710 ESPN Radio

Isn't that awesome? I was so excited and this made our Valentines night extra special. Thank you Steve Mason and ESPN!

Also, here are some the other cards I made to celebrate this wonderful day. Enjoy!

This "sweet hearts" card is a beauty. Love the colors.

Pink and black are always so pretty together.

I especially love this card on the right with the bold black bow.

Love making this envelop card. The chipboard pieces are Martha Stewart.

Here are more of the red envelop cards. So fun!

Well, that is it for now but hope you enjoyed seeing all these creations. Thanks for stopping by!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
