I love clean

2/24/23 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Hey everybody! Happy Sunday! It’s almost the middle of February already – time sure is flying by! I’m stoked to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share with you today! I so love the Household Chore Gnomes Collection – these guys are so cool and you know how I love me some gnomes! ;) I created a center step card featuring items from the Die Cut Pieces and Gnome Collection Pack 6×6 Double Sided Cardstock, along with the Back to Basics Royal Collection Pack 6×6 Double-Sided Cardstock and Royal Enamel Dots.

I die cut the easel card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and the layering panels from the Gnome Collection Pack 6×6 Double-Sided Cardstock. I selected a light blue cardstock from the Royal Collection Pack 6×6 Double-Sided Cardstock which I tore to create a puddle of water. Then I added the gnome, cleaning supplies and sentiment from the Die Cut Pieces, and added some Royal Enamel Dots. I tied a blue twine bow on the sentiment which completed the card front.

For the back, I die cut layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and the Gnome Collection Pack, then fussy cut the sentiment from a card in the Die Cut Pieces. Isn’t that sentiment a hoot?! Love how this 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

  1. Leslie, what a great story your little step card tells – front and back. I love the colors you chose, too. I certainly do appreciate anyone who cleans for a living. It’s hard work and always seems so thankless because as soon as you finish, it requires being done again! I guess that goes for all of us who clean regularly? LOL Thanks for sharing this sweetie, with all its layers and fun at Jan’s Digi Stamp Challenges . Thanks for the inspiration, and I hope to see more of your designs soon.

  2. Oh, Leslie, this fun fold card is fantastic and sure brought a smile to my face! The back sentiment is one I ask myself before cleaning my bathrooms! LOL Thank you for playing at Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
