Life is simple.

Hi everyone! A very Happy Sunday to you – here’s to the beginning of a great week! Today marks the 21st anniversary of the multiple terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in the United States. After all these years, my heart still aches for the families and friends of all those who lost their lives that day. Please take a moment to remember them. Now on to something happy! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer with a fun inspiration project! When I stepped down from the regular team this past May, I agreed to pop in from time to time as a guest designer, either filling in for regular DT members or creating new release samples. Janet is out of town for a couple weeks so you’re seeing me today and will see me again next Sunday! ;) I created a mini slimline retirement card using our Village by the Sea Washi Tape, Wide Wood Washi Tape, Wide Sky Washi Tape and Sun & Cloud Brads! I love creating little scenes on my cards and it was fun watching this one come to life!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and Village by the Sea Washi Tape (trimmed along the tops of the buildings). I added a plank created from a narrow strip of 110# Solar White cardstock covered with Wide Wood Washi Tape, and added Sun and Cloud Brads. I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside Sentiments stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink along with some birds from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside stamp set in black ink.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Royal Sundance Kraft Fiber cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranger Letter It Wedding stamp set in Catherine Pooler Sand Castle ink.

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
