Any time of year!

Thank yous are in style any time of year.  

Bring in a breath of sunshine by using Paper Flowers on your thank you card.
some dancing Butterfly brads.
So much joy in one envelope!

The sentiment comes from The Project Bin:  Autumn's Calling.

Since I wanted this to be a floral card, I covered up the heart on thanks with a brad!

In August, my family was treated to a local baseball game by our neighbors.
And yes, I am a bit late in writing thanks.
But I am sure this card is going to knock it out of the park!


And remember, we have a variety of baseball brads and home plate as well!
Sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps

Remember to show your appreciation to those who have shown you love this year!


Around the corner...

While many of you are probably bundling up to go over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house for a turkey dinner,
remember that Christmas is just around the corner!

The Project Bin has an elegant scripture set that will  keep you focused on the true meaning of the Christmas holiday.


I used felt snow flakes for the embellishment with a bit of silver glitter washi tape and enamels from the Eyelet Outlet.  The warm red snow flakes are a great contrast to the usual blue/white snow.
Craft Glue Dots ® are the best for securing felt shapes onto your cards!

If you like making Christ center stage during the Christmas season,
you will need to add this Luke 2 set to your shopping cart!

Thanks so much for checking in.
Eat a piece of pie for me!! 
Extra whipped cream, please!


Glory to God

Merry Christmas, fellow Crafters! 
Another Christmas card...but this time in the shabby chic style!

But I used daubers and various colors of red ink to make it into a poinsettia that even Frosty would want to go into a green house for!  The leaves were made from green flowers. Clip 1 or 2 petals to create leaves!  
I used Craft Glue Dots to build up my flower.
Matt finish yellow enamels complete my poinsettia!

I love these scripty scriptures verses.
It reminds me of Christmas Eve each year...
when we reread the story of Christ's birth from Luke 2. 

A great name for this The Project Bin set, don't you think!
The swirl bling, in champagne color,  looks right at home on this card.
Shabby chic is layers upon layers!

Remember...PIN TO WIN with The Project Bin!



White on White

What is white on white and loves December?
Why a Christmas card from The Project Bin!

Here is another CAS idea that can be adapted for so many cards that feature a sentiment!

This sentiment comes from The Project Bin's Luke 2 set.

I used Ultra Thin Glue Dots ® to secure the top layer. Baker's twine for some color...
and a holly brad from the Eyelet Outlet for a bit of holiday cheer!
