Just give it some time.

Hello again, crafty friends! You can’t get rid of me yet, lol! A new challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog is live this morning and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #5 – Anything Goes + Inlaid Die Cut! I created a pretty CAS encouragement note card using stamps and dies from Stampin’ Up, and pretty Doodlebug Design papers. I thoroughly enjoyed myself – this was very therapeutic. I love dragonflies anyway, and it was just lots of fun picking out the papers and inlaying the die cut pieces!


I’ve been on a CAS kick lately, making cards I would have never seen myself making a few years ago. CAS has always been challenging because I like big bows (I cannot lie) and lots of layers, lol! I’m really pleased with how this one turned out. I LOVE these Doodlebug Design papers because they are so soft and made the prettiest dragonflies! I finished the front with a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and left the inside blank to write a custom note.

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
