Christmas Apron Card


I love the whole concept of creating paper crafting projects that look like aprons. Gives your project a little more "homemade" appearance. I used this week's freebie pattern at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs to create this Christmas greeting card. 

I've added some fabric trim and ribbon. Chipboard snowflakes by K & Company. The sentiment is stamped and created using heat embossing powder. Eyelets were added for the ribbon at the top of the apron. 


Thank you to Little Scraps of Heaven for such a sweet pattern!

Ice Cream Greeting Card

Here's a great card to cheer anyone up! I've used patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I really like  the color scheme on this card design. I had picked out some papers and kept rearranging them until everything fell into place. Twine was then added, for hairbows and around the sentiment. Of course, I had to add my crocheted flowers too. I just love the handmade look that they give a finished piece.

Apple of my Eye

Here's a sweet 5x7 card I've put together using patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I love the look of the twine and burlap! The apple saying was created using a Stampin' Up stamp, which I added some color too, with Copics. The final touch, one of my handmade crocheted flowers.

4th of July

I was needing a quick blog project for my design team project at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, so, I decided to make another 4th of July card. I love using kraft paper for my card bases, something different and gives the project sort of a country appearance. Being that my background would be a white tone, I've added some embossing to the large star. Finished up with some dimensional sparkly stars and twine.

Count your Rainbows

Here's a sweet card created using a freebie file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. The sentiment is one of my favorites.
