I have been working on some cards for the Core’dinations Design Team Call.
I put the finishing touches on these and I am getting ready to submit these to CORE’DINATIONS.
Wish me luck, I am sure the competition will be fierce, in a friendly way:)
This is my first card. I made this with the CORE’DINATIONS VINTAGE FLOWER POWER collection paper.
This paper is so gorgeous. It has the look and feel of linen. The colors for the core are rich and beautiful.
Here is a side view and a close up of my ribbon and flowers.
I used a piece of the Graphics 45 paper for the focal point, I love how all the colors came together on this card.
This card I made with a piece from the WHITEWASH COLLECTION.
I love all the summer colors on this.
I have sprinkled my fruits with my PK GLITZ glitter.
The WHITEWASH paper is fun to work with. It reminds me of paper sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Now we have arrived at my last entry.
For this card, I wanted to show you that you can use this metal dies to EMBOSS with.
The sandwich, for the BIG SHOT, would be Multi Purpose Platform on TAB 1, Acrylic plate, die facing up, paper right side up, embossing pad, acrylic plate and then you are ready to roll it through the machine.
The Rubber Embossing pad stops the die from actually cutting.
I used 3 different papers for this butterfly. I love the way it looks.
If you have any thin metal dies, like the CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS, experiment by embossing with them.
With the CORE’DINATIONS lines of paper you really can’t fail.
Wish me luck, I truly would love to work with CORE’DINATIONS, wouldn’t you??
Have a great weekend, go make a card, have fun and come back and visit me soon:)

Take the day off, put up your feet and let’s hop!
For todays hop, I am celebrating my never-ending unorganized, lived in, loved, falling apart, seldom tidy house!
I am not about to show you pictures, but I did make a special plaque to capture my thoughts!
If this is your first stop to my blog, you need to know:
I am crazy about Mary Engelbreit!
I am crazy about polka dots!
I am crazy about cherries!
These are all the theme of my project.
I have taken a plain frame, removed the glass………
I am not rich enough to buy shadow boxes and this has a lot of layers.
I did not buy anything brand new for this project. I did the phrase on PSE7, used scraps of wallpaper and just looked through my stash for things to match.
This is the kind of of project that is 100% me!
I love everything about it and now I need to find a place to hang it!
Another phrase that is great for this hop:
HOUSEWORK IS FOR THE BIRDS!!!
Keeping with that theme, I have created this nice prize pack for one lucky person.
It is a card kit. You will get enough supplies to make (6) of these cards.
Finished Card counts as 1, plus supplies for the 5 others.
If one of the spots on the mushroom look weird, it is Photoshop’d in.
It fell off, and I did not notice till I was editing the pics! OOPS!!
Side view of this one of a kind card, designed by ME:)

It is a wet and rainy Friday here in “Sunny” California.
We thought Spring was here, but I guess Mother Nature has a bone to pick with us or something.
I have some springtime projects to share, thinking that Spring will be here…soon?
See the hand in the picture below? That is my 6 year old sons hand.
He gets jealous I always use his sister as my model, so today he is the star.
His hands are small and so is my little spring project he is holding.
I started making this cone with the largest
I am using the Core’ dinations Whitewash Collection in this project.
I embossed the paper with the BANDANA embossing plate.
I then lightly sanded to reveal the core. I think it looks like my cone is dusted with powdered sugar.
I know this might sound silly, but because this was such a small piece, I felt like I needed to show another project I just finished.
This was a little time consuming and required lots of patience but the final result was well worth it!
I then attached them all, forming one continuous strip and then I created the lantern.
