From Our Family To Yours... Merry Christmas!

Holy cow... Where did this year go?!!!  Each year seems to go by quicker and quicker, t's amazing.  I'v hardly had a chance to do anything creative this year.  I've even had numerous custom requests that I had to turn down.
I hope you're all doing well and staying as crafty as ever.  

Here's a cute little Christmas card I managed to squeeze in.  The little flags are hand-cute from some fun Christmas material, I found in my stash.

Crepe Paper & Old Book Page Flowers...

So I ran across some great colors of crepe paper (party steamers) and an old dictionary at the thrift store.  I just could resist buying them to see what I could create.  Here's the 1st project :)

Hope everyone's having a great week!

Hugs, Lisa

A little off the beaten path....

Hi, I hope your enjoying this fine Labor day!!!  It's been super hot & humid here, but nice to finely get some down time :):):)

So, I've noticed these adorable little needle felted critters all over the internet and I just had to give it a go.  Trust me when I say, if you're going to try it, be very careful... I gave myself a few good stabbings with that crazy felting needle and it doesn't feel so hot!!!

The black and white kitty is in the likeness of my sweet little Hailey cat, who passed away in June this year.  It's not great, but not too shabby for my first try ;)

The second one is a cute little lop eared bunny, I made especially for my Blythe doll "Georgina".  I have yet to find subtitle eyes for this cute little bun-bun, but I am on the lookout. I tried googly eyes and didn't like them.  I think i'll try some black beads?!

All you need is:  Roving Wool, Felting needles, Foam felting pad and some eyes.

Wedding Guest-Box Tags....


Thought I'd drop by & share some sweet little tags I created for a co-worker.  Her daughter is getting married next month and instead of a guestbook, she is going to have e a lovely little guest-box.  So they requested some customized tags to use on their adorable little box.  Her wedding is vintage & very soft colors, so here's what I made them.  Hope you like.  BTW... They were a success, they loved them :)

The papers are metallic & so beautiful in person... I tried but it's hard to capture how pretty they are.

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Surprise Birthday...

Here I used one of Penny Blacks wonderful stamps... I LOVE kitties ;)  
I've added lots of 3D effects, glittery bling and lovely stitching too!!!


Wishing You A Speedy Recovery...

Fun with stamping & stitching. 
My friends sweet little granddaughter broke her leg and here's a fun little card I created to help cheer her up. 
The inside also had a similar flag to the one here that reads "Jordan Lily" and it read "Wishing You A Speedy Recovery"!

Sorry You Caught A Bug...

Here's a simple card... It turned out pretty cute, but looking back, I should have added a lot more flowers to the bottom of the jar :):):)

Doodlecharms = 2 Jars (welded together) & the Ladybug
Jar = Black card stock, White vellum
Lid = Silver metallic card stock
Prima = Flowers
Stamp your inside sentiment


Quick Mini Thank You Cards... Using Scrap Paper!

Here are some quick Mini's made entirely out of my scrap paper stash, you know the lovely little leftovers we just can't bare to throw away.  They only measure about 3" x 2" and have 3 dimensional punch flowers.  There size makes them even cuter than if they were a standard size card.  The insides are simply stamped "Thank You"!

And I'd like to thank you for looking... Have a great day ♥


Sweet Little Blue Jean Birthday...

Here's a fun little Birthday card I made a while back.  This fun little Magnolia stamp is color, cut & layered for a nice 3 dimensional effect. I used Prisma pencils & mineral spirits for blending. Simple and fun :):):)
Happy Sunday!

Summer Bliss...

Hey there! 

Here's a sweet little card I put together...
The cabin was cut using my Cricut Expression and the cartridge is "Summer Bliss Seasonal".
The clouds, sunshine, roof, chimney are doodled and colored by me. 
I added random stitching and pretty little red roses.
I also propped the door open & you can see wallpaper inside. I used a brass colored brad for the door knob.

Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend!

Sealed with a Fish....

OK... So it's been ages since I've posted and that's because I have a ton going on here. 
When I have too much on my plate, I tend to lack creatively.  
Which helps explains my recent card-lifting, (I normally don't), but I felt compelled to recreate this wonderful little gem, by the lovely and oh so talented Michele Kovack over at Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scapbooker!  

Thank you for the inspiration Michele. xo

Happy Valentine's everyone :)
