Jinger Adams Collections - "Hi" Card

Hello crafters!  I'm her to share a sketch-inspired card using the All-Occasions Card Kit and Deconstructed Sketch #109!
I love using sketches when I get in a little inspiration rut!  Even DT members get the crafty blues and I find that some of my most productive days start with a sketch challenge!
As you can see, I took some liberties with the sketch because I had a premade card base and so the center-step design was already chosen for me.  I also omitted the bow so that the design could be more child/gender-friendly.

Want some more details on the project?  Head to the Jinger Adams' blog: HERE.

Thanks for taking a look!
Keep it ROYAL people!!

DCWV - The Far East Card


Hello people, and a happy Tuesday!  I wanted to share a card I made using a beautiful new stack called, The Far East Stack!  (If you are familiar with The Far East Stack of a few years ago - this one is different!)

I love all the foil accents and the endless fussy-cutting possibilities make this a winner in my book!
Take a look at my "Grateful Heart" card.
Supplies: (The Far East Stack, 6x6 Metallic Stack) DCWV, (Sentiment Stamp) Hampton Art for Authentique, (White embossing powder) Hampton Art, (flowers) Prima
Thanks for stopping by today!  I always appreciate your pins, shares on facebook or just a comment!  I love hearing from you! 
Later queenies!

The Royal Castle Shoppe - Camera Cards

Hello people! I can't wait to share some exciting things with you today!!

I have used some of my Royal Castle Stamp sets to create some cards for you using some other supplies from the Royal Castle Shoppe!

I love the flair that is now available at the Royal Castle Shoppe - the camera one I used on this card really adds a lot of pop and dimension, without lots of weight or bulk.  I paired it with a really cute camera paper from Echo Park!

Next is a super cute, bright camera card I made using a few of the camera images from the different sets.

I'm a big fan of this citron green color!  It is pretty popular right now and can be found in so many newer collections.  Here, I used the camera paper from Here and Now by Echo Park which is available in The Royal Castle Shoppe in full size and 6x6!

Thanks for taking a look!  Don't hesitate to join in the fun with Theresa TSQ over on her facebook shop!  Just ask for an invite and she'll add you to the group.

Later queenies!

DCWV – Vintage Collector Layout

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Here to share a layout I created with one of my FAAAAVORITE new DCWV stacks: Vintage Collector.


There were lots of little things to cut apart in this stack, but my favorite was the sheet of chalkboard sentiments/titles (I got Family and the Live/Take Risks/Thing Happy Thoughts from that page)

This stack has tons of trendy motifs throughout including chevrons, hexagons, hot air balloons, ledger, and much more!  I love the hexies I used here – I cut them from the full 12x12 sheet.  See the headphones on the right?  My favorite!


Supplies: (The Vintage Collector Stack, The Glitter Cardstock Stack –6x6) DCWV, (Buttons) Buttons Galore, (Dimensional Butterfly Embellishment - left) Pebbles, (Scalloped circle punch) Fiskars, (Butterfly Punch “Monarch”) Martha Stewart, (Lucky 8 Punch) We R Memory Keepers, (Cheveron Glitter Tape) Recollections, (gems) Pebbles


Thanks for stopping by!  Check out more of DCWV: HERE
