Love Life

Hello, crafty peeps! Well, this is it – my last post for the morning! It’s time for a new challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #4 – Anything Goes + Paper Piecing. I created a fun note card that I left blank inside to write my own sentiment. Remember, the technique twists are always optional – we offer them simply to inspire you – and they are not required to play in our challenges! Although I don’t do it very often, paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques and I love using patterned paper which always adds depth and texture.


I’ve been in a CAS craze lately. If you know me, you know I love colors, layers and big bows! I’ve shied away from clean and simple for so long that now I can’t seem to get enough of it! This card was no exception – I stamped the open image on a small piece of cardstock and cut it with a double-stitched die. I adhered the fussy cut lemon and leaves stamped on the patterned paper, and then layered the panel on a piece of yellow fun foam which you can see underneath it from an angle. Kind of a fun touch! I laid it on the card base for placement, stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner, and then adhered the panel to the card base. I finished the front with randomly placed English Mustard Crystal Drops. Couldn’t have been any easier and sure packs a powerful punch! I love how it turned out! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
