Hugs & Kisses Valentine Greeting Card


Hey there Peeps and welcome to 2018!!!!! First day of the year and first day of the month which means I’m sharing my first project created with the new January Ribbon Club Valentine Mix.

This is the most yummy collection of Valentine inspired ribbons and trims  so perfect for your holiday and shabby chic projects.
I’ve created a vintagy inspired greeting card ….


Isn’t this just the dreamiest??? The heart balloon in the image were the inspiration for this card.

This combination of die cuts and patterned papers is so festive : )

Altered chipboard and tiny word stickers here to make a multi layer sentiment.

A simple and sweet bow created with the lovely pink ribbon is layered over lace and topped off with a glittery brad.

What’s better than a pretty paper doily? A pretty paper doily layered over a die cut doily of course!

I’ve added sequins and Prills here to add a bit of sparkle and shine.

Deck The Halls Christmas Greeting Card


Happy December Peeps! I’m sharing a card I created with the new Back to Basics December Ribbon Club Assortment.

I was so happy to see this collection as I have some really fabby plaids that I’ve been wanting to use and the black ribbon coordinates perfectly!

I think the black ribbon was the perfect choice to anchor the red plaid.

Did I mention I like plaid? I am all about the plaid!

These gorgeous flowers are from RRR too. I’ve created a nice arrangement full of blooms and die cut leaves and glittery accents.

The sentiment is layered over a festive holiday die cut that reminds me a bit of chalkboard : )

I balanced the larger arrangement with a smaller second combination that accents the layered poofy bow topped with jingle bells.

Even though I was working on a busy background I wanted a little something extra so I included die cut borders in flat black. A few pearl are the perfect finishing touch.

Ghostly Greetings


Hello there paper peeps! Just dropping in with a frightfully delightful greeting card I created with the new September Ribbon Club Halloween Assortment.

Isn’t it just fabulous? A great mix of traditional Halloween colors and patterns punched up with some fresh and vibrant new additions to the holiday  theme.

I created a very fun and festive card….

Isn’t it just too much???? I love me some layers!

I know this doesn’t quite take the record for the most paper layers I’ve added to a card…but it’s close.

The juxtaposition of the living and the dead with all these glorious flowers arranged on a skull in a cloche is just creepy in a beautiful way.

I’ve got some altered chippies here and a double layer bow.

A few prills and twine finish off this card with great detail.

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Card


Hey Peeps! Happy 1st of the month to all of you. You know it’s my favorite day since I get to share my first project with the new Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment.

These soft dreamy colors reminded me of sherbet…..so I was naturally inclined to make a card with something sweet on it.

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Greeting Card

I really tried for a CAS card….but I think I may not have achieved it.  Oh well it’s CAS for me. I started with a fun cupcake stamp on coordinating papers to the ribbons.  The frosting has 2 layers of stamped images with Foam Tabs between for dimension. I added some Sugar Glitter Paste , a few sequins, and colored in the cherry with some Sparkle Pen.  It’s all layered on a small oval die cut that helps to separate the busy patterns.


This bow has 2 of the ribbons stacked and  topped off with a vintage button. The sentiment was cut into the shape of a banner and given Foam Tabs to pop it up. Those sweet little Pearly Stars are the perfect subtle accent.


A border in darker pink helps to anchor the lighter patterned papers. I’ve stitched around the card to add a bet of detail and finished the card on the inside with a coordinating pattern of paper.

Okay..a little more practice and maybe I’ll be better at Clean and Simple…but for now I quite like this card and I’m now obsessed with plaid frosting!!!

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Happy 4th of July Wall Hanging


Happy 1st of the month peeps! Just dropping in to share my first project with the new Patriotic Assortment Ribbon Club Selection.


This will be perfect for all the summer holiday projects! Great solids with fun and festive patterns!
I created a wall hanging just because I was in the mood to make extra bows lol.

Stars and stripes are my favorite Americana themed patterns. I die cut the base and added layers of 110 lb cardstock to ensure that it would be nice and sturdy.

The focal image is a digital tag from my shop Patriotic Tags Collage. It’s got a metal eyelet with thick twine pulled through and glass glitter stars peeking out from behind.

Coordinating flowers are layered in with Spiral Stamens and a large chipboard sentiment.

The crisp white paper doily works great to break up the busy patterns.

Isn’t this bow fabulous??? There’s a solid taffeta with the satin quatrefoil on top then twine and last but not least an epoxy patterned brad.

Okay that’s all for me. I can’t wait to get more projects started with this ribbon club selection….and get my house all decked out for the summer holidays : ) G
