Lacy, Frilly Mixed Media Pocket Card

Hello sweet friends!
I'm on a quest for lacy, frilly, and flowery card making. I've a hankering for mixed media as well. Combined they make one lovely, kinda shabby chic project. I'm in love!

These papers are Prima's Georgia Blues and Mintay's 7th Heaven by Karola Witczak. So gorgeous together. As you can see... lots of lace, glitter hearts, beautiful I Am Roses flowers, a resin frame, a Prima GBs chipboard sticker, a Prima white glittered bird, and a Joanne's white organza ribbon bow. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Metallic Sticker Quotation backed with Hobby Lobby silver glitter paper.

For the glittery elements I used Tim's Ranger Distressed Grit-Paste with a Prima #564230 stencil and topped it with a sprinkling of Twinklits Diamond Dust glass glitter. It made my heart happy.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fantastic day!

Lavender Frost Anniversary Pocket Card


Hello and welcome on this beautiful Saturday in Ohio!
I'm working in my craft room today on a huge stack of Valentine cards for our family, but I have an anniversary card instead to show you. I did this one a couple weeks ago and it must have slipped by me in my line-up. It's created with two Prima collections... the main one being one of their newer ones... Lavender Frost.

The frame is triple layered... two of white and the third of a light pink cardstock. I used Tim Holtz Ornate Frame 2 Bigz die for this, glueing the layers together with Ranger's Distress College Medium and applying them with 3-D foam adhesive. The wood stove image came from a cut apart sheet of Karola Witczak's collection Dear Diary of Polish papers. A lovely match for Lavender Frost.

 I added some vintage ecru lace and a snippet of pink nylon trim wrapped with tiny pearls. The flowers are by Prima. My sentiment is layered with glitter paper from Hobby Lobby. To finish it off, I trimmed out the tag with pink organza ribbon from Joanns and a white glitter heart with a row of half pearls in the right top corner.
I hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Love Notes A2 Valentine Card

Hi and welcome!
We're having another brutally cold day so I'm holdup in my craft room with numerous cups of coffee. It's the only way to survive, right?
My retro Valentine card is A2 size side folding. The papers are once again from Graphic 45's Mon Amour 12x12 paper pad. Beneath the sweet image from my stash, is a kraft pocket with a small tag for additional note writing that's tied with crocheted lace. The card is embellished with red and white grosgrain ribbon, red I Am Roses blooms with leaves, some vintage ivory lace, a chipboard G45 tag tied with natural burlap string, a paper doily, and a gold glittered heart.

I hope you're warm and safe wherever you are, and having a wonderful time crafting. Don't forget the coffee!
Thanks for stopping by!

With Loving Thoughts Pocket Card

Hello my dear friends!
I'm back again with a pocket card with such a sweet image. I pulled this out of my Valentine stash, but I can't for the life of me remember where I purchased this. It might have even been a freebie for all I know. One thing for sure... it's a cutie! And accented in my favorite color... blue.
I purchased these new Prima Georgia Blues papers at Scrapbook Super Station in Butler when we took the hike over there earlier in the month. Of course I didn't get enough of them, and had to repeat the journey again yesterday. I got a couple packs of the collection flowers as well.

This flower is actually a vintage Prima that's been in my stash for ages. I've always loved these and have been hoarding them. I really need to downsize my flower stash, so I'm going to have to let go of some of these treasures. I changed the center of this one from stamens to an antique bronze ring topped with a Prima Say It In Crystals. The blue blooms are from Petaloo and the hot pink rosebuds are by I Am Roses. The foliage is by 49 And Market and some cut with a Tim Holtz Thinlits die. The lace is from Hobby Lobby.

The gold heart is a Prima chipboard sticker from the collection. The four inch paper doily is from my stash.
Hope you have a grand day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Anniversary Mon Amour Pocket Card

Hello my friends! I hope you're having a great weekend!
I've switched up my theme but not my paper collection. I'm still hanging with Graphic 45's Mon Amour. This collection is wonderful for anniversary and wedding projects as well as Valentines.

I again added in a glassine bag to give this card that extra tag for message writing. I great space to tell that special one how you feel about them.

The multi heart die-cut was done with Simon Says Stamp's Clipping Heart die and glitter paper from Hobby Lobby. For the sentiment I used MSE's stamp set Anniversary Innies & Outies, and backed it with more of the HL glitter paper.

The fabric flower is by Petaloo and the pink organza ribbon came from Joanns.
Wishing you a happy day and a fabulous weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Pocket Card Forever & Always & Forever...

Hello and welcome!
I'm on a roll with Valentine cards. My head is full of ideas right now... for card making not writing this post. Have you noticed I write less and less. I've always been more of a listener instead of a talker and that translates over into my writing as well. What I really love is creating with paper. 

This pocket card is full of Graphic 45 goodness. The fact that you can make numerous cards using one paper pad and they look completely different is a huge plus. Here I went for the darker side choosing the black patterns and teaming them with red. I used my vintage ivory lace, I Am Roses flowers, and red satin ribbon to compliment them. For the doily I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits die.

I made a tiny envelope from a scrap of the paper, stamping it with "love" and adding a teeny heart I cut using white glitter paper. Ahhhh... true bliss!!!
Enjoy the day, friends!
Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Love Notes Pocket Card

Happy Monday friends!
It's a beautiful, crisp day in Ohio. Trying to stay warm here. I hope your temps are a bit higher than ours.

I have a Graphic 45 Valentine pocket card to show you. Lots of lace and paper doilies and hearts on this one. Isn't that the mark of a true Valentine? 
I added a glassine envelope with a pocket I attached to the front. In these I tucked three little tags. Lots of writing space on this card for love notes. Pearl trims abound along with this gorgeous lace.

I topped it all off with a lovely red organza bow.
Don't you just adore Valentine cards?
My very favorite!!!
Have a terrific day and thanks for stopping by!
