Joy’s Life meets Mary Engelbreit

29 Aug
Hello everyone, Jeannie from The Polka Cabana here today with a fun gift card/tag/letter etc. idea.  I hope that some of you from Close Friends on Facebook are here to visit and get an idea of what you can also do with things you might have lying around your house.  I am on a design team for a fun site called Joy’s Life.com.
All of us on the Joy’s Life DT are working with these Swatch Tag. Swatch tags are used for lots of crafters to keep track of paper and pen color samples etc. 
Here is my completed project.
 
Here is a side view, these tags could be used as anything.
 
I have gathered all of mine together as a card/letter
.
 
I had a lot to say, so each tag is numbered on the back to keep them in order.
 
 
I used quite a few stamp sets and had fun mixing and matching the phrases to get the exact words I needed.  That is the best thing about these stamps for me.  First there are so many phrases and then if you get creative, you can make up your own by mixing, matching and splicing! 
 
 
 
All of my images are taken from a Mary Engelbreit desk calendar.
 
All of my fun papers are from Canvas Corp.
 
A big thank you to May Arts for my wonderful ribbon.
 
The buttons?  Are from PaperTrey Ink.
 
Isn’t it great how I was able to get some sort of sentiment for each tag I made?
 
I am so happy to have these Joy’s Life stamps, it makes projects like this so much more fun to put together.
 
Here is a final peek at all of them together.
I hope you have liked my project for the day.
This has been Jeannie posting for Joy’s Life.com. 
A special thank you to any and all of you who have stopped by from Close Friends!

Hello Everyone!

PLUS…..over on Joy’s Life.com
we are all putting our CRI-KITS to good use this week.  
I am using pens from the Reg. Neon set.

I am using the stamp set called Pun in the Sun from Joy’s Life.
 
The little boat is from the Cricut Cartridge Life is a Beach.
 
This is the inside of the card.  I have also used dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and My Favorite Things.
Here is a close up of the area where the CRI-KITS pen was used.  It really does make a gorgeous background for this card.

Welcome Little Baby Sunshine

17 Jul
If you have been following us this week over on Joys Life Design Team, you know we are focusing one SHAPED CARDS.
My shaped card, as you can see, is a bottle.
Using the PUN IN THE SUN stamp set, I embossed the phrase “Hello Sunshine” onto the card.

I then made my own sunshine peeking from underneath the bottle rim.

The green words are just printed off the computer to match the color scheme of the card.
I just love how this all came together.  Wouldn’t this make an adorable card for a new baby?
I hope you have enjoyed  my card today..this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
Most of the card supplies are from an older Deena Ziegler Kit I had.

Fishytime Summer Fun

11 Jul
I have a fun project to share to day.
This is a little box that can easily be made up in no time at all.
We are focusing using the stamp new set from Joys Life.com called Pun in the Sun.

I am using lots of fun papers from Canvas Corp.
I used 3 different stamps from the stamp set.  Isn’t that little boat adorable?
When you pull the “drawer” open it reveals some more paper fish and some gummy sharks as a surprise.
The drawer could be used for so many different things and would even be big enough to hold small cookies, candles, soaps etc.
I love the way this turned out and think the stamps go perfectly with the fish and the bright and colorful papers.
Who wouldn’t be excited to get a small surprise like this?
I hope you have enjoyed my “idea”..this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
