Happy Birthday Grayden!

Hello and welcome!
It's a beautiful day in Ohio... time to get out for some adventure. After a trip to the eye doctor that's what I'm hoping will happen. School started here yesterday, and I've had the glums since half the grandchildren aren't around now to hug.
My project I'm showcasing today is a card I created for 13 year old grandson Grayden's birthday. It's an A2 top folding base of Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb cardstock. The pattern papers are by BoBunny. I stamped the sentiment using the Concord & 9th Happy Words clear stamp set and heat embossed with Ranger Copper embossing powder. I added Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and some antique copper metal embellishments. I popped out two hearts after cutting a piece of  copper glitter paper with my Simon Says Stamp Clipping Hearts die and added those for a small touch of pizzaz. 
Have a great rest of the week, friends!

Special Delivery Kaiser Rose Avenue Card

Hello! I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!
Today I have a card I made from the Scrapbook Super Station card kit Kaiser Rose Avenue featuring Kaisercraft's lovely Rose Avenue collection.

This card has a lot of layers using these gorgeous floral papers that come from the 6.5x6.5 paper pad and the pink glitter paper provided in the kit. I'm really enjoying the fact I don't have to come up with my own design. I can sit back and pull this all together, and make a beautiful card without as much effort. 

 In the kit you receive a full package of die-cuts, so you'll have lots left over to use on other projects.

The kit also came with these pink half pearls, which I sprinkled randomly around on the card.

Besides the pearls, my only other change to their design was the ribbon. I used this lovely white one in place of the soft pink.
This is a wonderful kit. Please do check it out here or visit the shop in Butler, PA. I love this place.
Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Card With Kaiser Rose Avenue

Hello and welcome to my blog!
Today I have another in my series of cards I created with the lovely Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station.

If you check out the link for the kit above, you'll see that I've made some significant changes to the design. Just me being me. I first of all changed the base from the one provided in the kit to a top folding one made from Neenah Classic Crest 110 lb Solar White cardstock. I love the materials in this kit, and wanted to play around a little with the paper and die-cuts. So that's exactly what I did, replacing the focal point die-cuts and the design.

For finishing touches I added on some beautiful Studio Katia Crystal Clear Confetti. They add just a bit of  sparkle and glam. I tied on a small piece of the pink ribbon to the tag for some softness. 
Yep, I'm liking this card!

 Hope your having a great week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Kaiser Rose Avenue So Grateful Thank You Card

Hello friends!
 The week is slipping away, but there's plenty of crafting going on in the Breedlove house. I've made another card from the gorgeous Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station. This one is created directly from the instruction sheet aside from a slight chance in the ribbon and pearls.

I'm loving this kit so much that the Penmaker drove us back over to Butler, PA, to purchase  another... four actually! They had added more new ones to their selection and the choice was difficult. Thus the four.

I'll show them all soon, but for now I just have to let you see my prize purchase...

I had to unbox it the minute I got home. They had recently received another shipment of the Tim Holtz Glass Mats. These things are so hard to find. They keep selling out everywhere, so I grabbed one up. It fit my desk perfectly... now I can't wait to try it out!

Have a wonderful, crafty day. Thanks for stopping by!

Together Is A Beautiful Place To Be Card

Hello and Happy Monday! 
This is stacking up to be a very busy week for the Penmaker and me, so I'll get right to today's card. It's a top folding A2 anniversary or wedding card. I created this with the Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station.

I did make some modifications to this one just like the others I made from this kit. I feel I need to put my own touches on the cards so they are truly mine. I added a bouquet of I Am Roses mini rosebuds in place of the flowers that came with the kit, but I tied them with the silver metallic thread and attached the charm as they suggested.

The materials in this kit are lovely... like this charm and pink half pearls.

I also changed up the sentiment die-cut to make this an anniversary/wedding card, and layered on an additional mat of pink patterned paper.
I'm nearly finished with this kit, so I'm seeing a trip to Butler, PA coming up in our future. Maybe I'll see you there.

Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Wishes Birthday Pocket Card

Hello again and welcome!
Today I've put together a pocket card with another vintage-look digi image with these darling young ladies that are this time on swings. Which is one of my favorite things to do (swinging) at the park, and especially with a grandchild or two.
The papers, other than my image and the Kraft Metallic, are from older Prima collections.

The two frame pieces were cut with Alterations Thinlits Stitched Ovals. They're layered and popped-up with 3-D foam adhesive. The white lace trim is from Hobby Lobby. The flowers are by Prima, and the green leaf stick pins are from Maya Road.

The clear acrylic butterfly bauble is a clearance item I picked up at Michaels several years back. Love these things, and wish I had more of them in my stash.
Our weather has been mostly cloudy skies and rain, but The Penmaker and I have been on the go. Seems like the best time to shop.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Kaiser Rose Avenue Thank You Easel Card

Hello and welcome!
Today I'm featuring another card I made using the Kaiser Rose Avenue Card Kit by Scrapbook Super Station in Butler, PA. This kit has been well worth the price and I'm loving the fact I can just more or less relax and follow their guidance.

For this one I did (almost) follow the instruction sheet. I made just a couple changes like adding gold glitter Hobby Lobby paper and leaving off the silver charm. Slight modifications, right?

This card turned out lovely, and I'm really happy with my purchase. I can foresee buying more of the SSS card kits in the future. And in case you're interested they do have a monthly kit club. The kits come with lots of extras, so they really are a great value.

I hope you're having a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by!
