Mixed Media Christmas Card

Happy weekend! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. It’s been very busy around here  and TONS of rain. But I have a new Mixed Media Christmas card to share that I made for the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today.


This card was an absolute BLAST to make! And in the truest spirit of Mixed Media, too. :) So many kinds of papers, mediums, and textures. And so perfect for Christmas or any Winter holiday.

I have the full step-by-step tutorial on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog and a complete product list, as well. So if a Mixed Media Christmas Card is your cuppa tea (or java) then please hop on over to see how this was made! :)

Enjoy your weekend and have a fantastic day!

Sophie Christmas

Happy Monday! I have a new post over on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog today!!

I’m using one of Jamie’s Bloom Girl stamps, Sophie, all done up for Christmas. I know!! Christmas?!! So soon!! Where has the year gone? But, here it is, almost Thanksgiving and we’re busy designing cards for the holidays.

The Bloom Girls Design Team will have our cards featured on the Prima blog this week for their 12 Cards of Christmas so make sure that you check out their blog this week, as well. It will be filled with inspiration from all of the  very talented designers.

Back to my card for today! Here she is. :)


Even though this is a pic of the FULL card, I’d still loooooooove for you to stop by the blog to see the full post and the close-ups. I’m really pleased with how this card turned out.  It’s such a non-traditional Christmas card. Even the papers that I used weren’t Christmas-y! Using Christmas colors is a great way to bring that holiday touch to a a maybe not-so obviously Christmas looking card.

I wish you all a fabulous week and can’t wait to hear what you all think about the 12 Cards of Christmas.


It’s a New Card Monday

Hey there! It’s a New Card Monday!! I’m so proud of the one that I have to share on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. I gotta tell ya, I’m not always super thrilled by the cards that I make. Sometimes I like parts of them, sometimes I like the technique, or sometimes I wish I could just throw them away (it happens), but I really do LOVE the way that this card turned out. Lots of cool stuff going on with it, too.

Here’s your sneak peek:



This card is really dimensional, shiny, shimmery and super pretty. I hope that you’ll all go over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see the whole thing. :)

I’ll also have a UStream this week with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® THIS Wednesday at 6:00 PM PST. But check out THEIR blog just in case things change.  Maybe “New Card Monday” will be something I’ll have to do every week….hmmm….I’ll give it some thought. 

Wishing you ALL an amazing week. xoxo

Thinking Pink

Hi there! I’m busy in Southern California today demo’ing for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® at Scrapbook Expo but I have a super fun card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that has ME…thinking PINK! :)

This was a fun card to make and I loved using all the 3D Foam Hearts in a variety of different ways.  And I used extra awesome pink photo corners are so sweet!! They are unique for the month of October. So, if you love them? Get them NOW!! Plus, they’re for a good cause as your purchase goes to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
