Life Pop Up Box Card

This card was created using a style of card called a Pop Up Box Card. This is a fun card to make because, not only is it 3 dimensional, it actually folds flat to fit inside an envelope. The worm and crayon pattern is by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I've added some crayon embellishments for added dimension.

Life Greeting Card

I love great sayings and when I come across one that I like, I HAVE to make something with it. To go along with this life sentiment, I've put together this card. I've created it, based on the sketch challenge at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I stuck with the color scheme of black and white, with a hint of red. Tiny buttons and twine were used for embellishing.

Fall Greeting Card

Today, I am sharing a Fall card that I put together. I love the three bears, created using a few Fall colors to go along with the theme. Pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I've embossed the white background with a leaf patterned embossing folder. Then embellished with a burlap strip and some felt leaves.

"Happy Fall Y'all"

This was a big project because I did two sets. Lots of little pieces, so lots to detail for me. I love how it turned out. Perfect for Fall photos.

Lots of Pieces

I normally just show photos of my finished work, but today, I thought I'd share some before and after photos.

Many people are unfamiliar with what exactly a paper piecing is. A paper piecing is a combination of many different colors of cardstock shapes, that are cut out, and pieced together. Before they are pieced together, each piece is hand detailed. Once all of the pieces are glued together, the piece is ready for your scrapbook pages or handmade cards.

My favorite part of the process is the detailing, right down to the tiny details in the eyes. The pieces take on their own personality, with each individual crafter's style. Here are a couple of before and after photos of some sets I had worked on today:
