Be good to yourself!

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a great week.  I have a fun card to share with you today.  I made it for a friend who recently had surgery.  I thought it would cheer her up.  

To make my card I used the Star Spangled Card Cutting Files. I sized it to 5.50 x 5.50 to make it the square shape.    The flourish is from the Flourishes 2 Cutting Files.  It is free until Thursday night.  The scalloped circle is from the Scalloped Circles Cutting Files.  The Scalloped Border is from the Borders 2 Cutting Files

Don't forget that there is the NEW Trick or Treat Challenge going on right now. 

Have a great week!

Nicole here today and  I have a birthday card to share with you for my design team project   I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, do you?   I made this one for a good friend's birthday that was celebrated at the end of September.

Happy Halloween

Hi, and Happy Sunday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is doing well.
Today I would like to share a little Halloween décor. I had so much fun making this and the PPPR 3D Witch Hat Cutting File is so simple to put together. The cute little skeleton head is from PPPR Skeleton Couple Cutting Files.  I covered the skeleton head with Mod Podge and than added Martha Stewart glow in the dark glitter.  I used the top left flower from the PPPR Flower Assortment Cutting Files. After I glued the  layers of the flowers together I sprayed it with water and started crunching up each layer. After the flower dried I sprayed it with  Glimmer Mist. For the trim of the hat I took a smaller circle and welded it to the inside of hat base. I hope that makes sense. 

How I got the  skeleton head to stand up.
What I used:
 Skeleton Couple Cutting Files
Flower Assortment Cutting Files
PBD "Guess Who" Stamp Set
Ranger Archival Black Ink
Clear Embossing
Glimmer Mist
Mod Podge
Martha Stewart glow in the dark glitter

❤{You're One Tough Cookie}❤

I'm sharing a quick post today showing you how the simplicity of a "journaling card" can make a big impact.

Using Lisa's graphics is a perfect way to accomplish this.

All you need to do is print out your file and cut it to a 4X3 size. 
(You can use a corner rounder and round the corner or leave it as is.)

Check it out on the layout, I layered it with other papers and some alpha stickers. I used Lisa's Cookies & Milk Cutting File:

Here's the layout I created of Mackenzie, she's going through a big spiritual growth stage and it's pretty amazing who she's growing into, I wanted to jot down a few notes about it.

Here's a close up of the cookie card:

Thanks for letting me share with you today! Make sure you stop by tomorrow for even more inspiration, a new file and a freebie!
