Creative Charms Cards

I wanted to show that you can use "vintage" products on "non-vintage" projects. Although I do dabble in creating vintage projects, I often find myself reaching for the bright colors. I mixed some Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely papers with the Vintage Make It Yours Self Adhesive Frames. I love that these frames give you a blank slate and so you can create matching embellishments for your project. On this card I put a flower from the paper into the frame, the clear sticker over the top and topped it with a Gradient Gem - white pearl. I also used a few of the clear stickers without the frames to highlight the words on my card.

Here are a couple other cards I made with the September Deal of the Month (girl). I used a three different types of gems and also that cute little duckie. There are so many goodies in this kit - I still have lots of embellishments left! You only have a few more days to order one - there is boy and girl option - only $7.99. Papers and ABC stickers on duck card are October Afternoon's Fly A Kite. On the balloon card, sentiment sticker is SRM and balloon is a Jillibean Soup Sprout.

Scribble Scrabble Guest Designer

I was excited to be asked to be a guest designer for Scribble Scrabble. I went a wee bit crazy making cards with a bunch of their cute collections I received. Here are a few of my favorite cards, but you can see all of my creations over at the Scribble Scrabble Blog.

Creative Charms September "Girl" Deal of the Month

This card was created using Creative Charm's September "Girl" Deal of the Month. I used the Playtime Girl Felts and the Red Gem Stickers. It was fun to make a girly card using more masculine colors. That cute little felt girl reminds me of my daughter who turns 8 next week. I'm sure it won't be much longer before she's asking for makeup and a cell phone...yikes! I layered embossed cardstock and patterned paper on this card. Since I had a lot to say, I also decorated the inside with the remainder of the sentiment and additional felt stickers.
If you would prefer a more masculine kit, be sure to check out September's "Boy" Deal of the Month. There are also new Dream Garden and Countryside mini kits and other new products so be sure to stop by the store. The Creative Lounge is also being updated with projects and project instructions.
