A (Super) Awesome Card Set

Hi, friends!

I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today, sharing this fun little card set.


I had so much fun making this. Not often you get to go clean and graphic when adding a little bit of glitz with foil and flock. 🙂 But I did…. and, man, it was fun!

Swing by their blog for the scoop on making a set like it. I’ve also got a few tips for adhering down teeny, tiny words (like the Awesome word my cards). They’ve got the perfect adhesives for that. Oh yes, and there are tips for using adhesives with foil and flock too.

Hope you will check out the post!

See you again soon, friends.

Today’s card

Hi all!

Another card to share today.

Another card made just for the fun of having fun.

Fancy Thanks by Teri

Created this guy mostly with products from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper. I’m a fan of Crate Paper so several pieces of the collection had to be mine when the collection surfaced at the local craft store. (Insert evil laugh here. Bahahahahahah!) Love it so much.

Fancy Thanks by Teri

The thanks word was cut with a die from Studio Calico. It is a pretty thin die so I used an old trick from the Scrapbook Dark Ages to adhere it to my card. What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s this: Squeeze glob of glue on scratch paper. Use toothpick to pick up small dabs of glue to dab gently on die-cut. 😉 Works great for thin dies.

So that’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again later, gators.

Today’s Project (2-9)


Hello all!

So I walked on the wild side today and made something non-card for Valentine’s Day. I put together these simple little treat bags.

They were super easy.


I started out with a couple tags. I cut some patterned patterned paper to go on them and then just started stamping with stamps from a couple stamp sets from Technique Tuesday – Adored by Ali Edwards and Love Always Wins by Ali Edwards. I slapped the papers onto the tags, added a few gems and called it good.

Then I stuffed some candy treats into small glassine bags and wrapped some patterned paper strips (from Crate Paper) around it. I thought the randomness of the papers (from their On Trend collection) worked swell for the project.


Finally, I tied on a little jute twine to each package and hung the tags from it.

Easy peasy. And, now, if the postal service will work with me to help these get in the hands of a few sweet friends in time for Valentine’s Day… 😉

By the way, I’ve got  prize to give away! Who won the slot in the You’ve Got Mail! with Lisa Spangler class from Studio Calico?! Well, hot dog. That would be Perrie (2/5 at 10:33)! Congrats, Perrie! Check your email for a note from me.

Be back again tomorrow!

Hi all !

And, guess what? I get to give one of you a slot in it. Woo-to-the-hoo! 🙂

But, first, here’s some info from Studio Calico about the class:
