Hello Santa!

Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am doing some preparation for my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.


For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then cut strips of paper for the side border to add some interest. I cut a snowflake tag  on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello Santa”.   I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.


To finish off the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!


I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

Fall Fun Scrapbook Layout

Hi, Carrie here to share with you my latest scrapbook layout.  This is my favorite time of the year.  I love to see the leaves turning into beautiful fall colors.  Where I live in Southern California there is not a lot of fall color.  But only 90 minutes away in Bear Bear Mountain the colors change and it really feels like fall.   The weather is cooler and it’s a great place to visit with family and friends.   This month I spent a girls scrapbook weekend in Big Bear.  I was super excited to create a Scrapbook Layout to document all the beauty of Fall and the time spent with great friends.

My favorite CTMH stamp set is “Fallen Leaves”  This is the perfect set for stamping onto patterned paper and fussy cutting out the leaves. I also inked all the edges with Distress Ink.

I added a couple of TCP flairs to embellish my project. These cute little buttons are the perfect touch!

The leaves are falling, it’s time to be Thankful for family and friends. Get out there and document your fall fun adventures.

 Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Scrappin’

A Favorite Memory

Hey there crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest layout.

I am trying my hardest to get caught up on older photos that need to be scrapped and getting my kids’ albums organized! It’s a big undertaking but I love making scrapbook pages & revisiting old memories. This one is one of my favorites!

puddles & rainbootsMy son loved his red rain boots when he was three and in them he discovered the love of jumping in puddles! I will never forget how happy he was when we returned home from an errand & he was able to splash in the puddles!

IMG_1190This flair button is the perfect compliment to my page!! It is the “Favorite Memory” button from the  I added it on top of a chipboard circle which was placed on top of a cork circle for added dimension. I love adding thread on my page to lend some texture.

IMG_1191IMG_1192   A few more fun embellishments and another page & memory are scrapped & ready to go in the album!

Thanks for visiting! Make it a crafty day!!

It’s a Circus! Pocket Letter


Happy Saturday Crafty Pickle Pals!

 I am here to share my latest Pocket Letter created with goodies from TCP!

 I fell in love with the Circus flair set when I saw it in the shop so I let it inspire this letter.  When I don’t have paper or stamps to fit the themes I want to create with, I utilize Pinterest and Google image searches to find unique pictures and clip art to use in my letters.  I create my own collage sheet of sorts by copying and pasting the images into Microsoft Word documents and resizing them to fit my needs.  For this letter, and many that I do, I enjoy juxtaposing vintage imagery with more current clip art for a unique look.  I created this letter using the clip art I found and fussy cut, as well as the Circus flair, sticky pickle spots, and the Disney Relish Sequin Mix from the shop (I picked out the Mickey head sequins so I was left with the fun black spotted ones and the red and yellow to match my color scheme in my shaker pocket).  Check out some detail shots below and don’t forget to click on the photos to see them larger!




I can’t wait till the shop reopens so I can add some more fun goodies to my stash!  I haven’t been to a circus since I was small–but this theme was so fun to work with and I never know what will inspire me next from The Crafty Pickle.  I hope I inspired you too!

Happy crafting!

Starbucks Gift Card holder

Hi It’s Carrie here!

It’s never too early to start making those handmade Christmas projects.  For me once Halloween is over I become focused on Christmas gift buying and crafting.  I like to have gift cards on hand to give as thank yous and small gifts for teachers and friends.  So in preparation for this I will create cute gift card holders. Then when a gift is needed I am ready to slip in the gift card. 

Starbucks is an easy one, a lot of my friends love to splurge on a Venti coffee any chance they can.  


The coffee cup from the “Treats of Friendship” stamp set by CTMH is perfect for this project .  

 To create my Red cup I stamped the coffee cup several time on white cardstock.  Using my distress ink, I watercolor painted my cups red with a green band.  Then I punched a 1/2″ circle from green pattern paper and used that for my label.  Then I fussy cut the lid and attached it to my cup for dimension. 

I stamped the merry, Merry ( also a CTMH stamp ) for my sentiment.  Adding the red and white twine to finish off my card. 

I attached the Starbucks gift card to the back with some double sided tape.

Perfect for a grab and go gift when needed. 

Happy Scrappin’

Hi Crafty friends! Happy Monday to you all. Hope it is going well so far for you!

I have another layout to share today using flair buttons from the store. Today I used a button from the gold foil collection that I absolutely adore and one from the “Life Documented” collection.


I started with a sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy this month and kept my page pretty simple. I love this photo of my two kiddos along with their cousins on St. Patrick’s Day! I wanted it to stand out and the flair buttons placed at each end of the picture really  help to anchor it yet also make it pop!



I chose the “Oh Happy Day” button to compliment the beige and green on the page.


The “Today” flair button worked well with the St. Patrick’s Day theme!

Try adding some fun flair to your next scrapbook page! I guarantee you’ll love the results!!

Thanks for stopping by!
