Abagail is an adorable stamp from Eat Cake Graphics. When I saw her I knew I wanted to use her for a Mother’s Day card. What little kid doesn’t remember baking or cooking something for their moms? And this cute stamp can be used for many occasions...
Here is my very first card for Eat Cake Graphics Stamps and I'm pretty excited to share it with you all. I knew when I saw this stamp I wanted to do something for Easter. I just love Mr. Bun in his speedy little basket racing to get some jellybeans. It just made me laugh and reminded me of my four kids racing to see what the Easter bunny left them...
Would you believe this handmade gift card holder album is made from toilet rolls? Well...it is! As you see, I made five holders attached with a D ring and tied on some coordinating ribbon. I can't take credit for this idea, so I want to thank my friend Cynthia for first introducing me to this project. I love it and use it all the time throughout the year. You can find lots of toilet roll projects on Pinterest and Bo Bunny just posted a toilet roll project today too. See how I made this gift card holder album below...
My mother-in-law's birthday is on Oct 31st and she loves all things Halloween. This year's card I wanted to incorporate a patch work type pumpkin I've been seeing all over social media. When you use pattern papers together in similar color families, or theme, they coordinate nicely. As I did with orange and black...
My craft club decided to help a fellow craft friend out and make cards for our US soldiers stationed in Hawaii. I am proud to say we made over 300 cards for our US soldiers and their families to say "thank you" for your service and sacrifices...see more below...
I LOVE Halloween so much I created an album just for scrapbooking our Halloween Memories. I created this page from some of my favorite things and favorite papers. I started with a 12x12" piece of kraft cardstock as my base. I used another piece of kraft cardstock, border punched the edge, backed it with purple cardstock, and adhered to the base page. Then layered several printed papers that all coordinated together and border punched down the left and right sides. I like how the colors, swirls, and edge punches all coordinate together.
I drew inspiration from the colors in my kids costumes and added a double matted border around their picture and adhered to the page. Added diamond rub-ons to the bottom right side that matched the colors on the page. Wrapped the page with black twine that resembled a spider web.
Flowers aren't just for Spring and Summer anymore, as I embellished with a flower die cut to create a "spooky" embellishment by using Halloween printed paper. Cut 3-4 flowers out and layer each flower with black mini pop dots for added dimension, add layered buttons, and adhered to the page with glue dots.
Stamp sentiment "OCT" on an office tag or die cut tag, heat emboss, ink edges, and wrapped with black twine, and adhere to page. I love ribbon, buttons, and gems. So I had to add them to this scrapbook page too. I cut several different ribbon pieces, scraps would work too, that coordinated with this page and adhered them to the office tag, added layered buttons, and adhered with glue dots. Add a sticker over the bottom ribbon for an extra title and added gems for some sparkle. I find glue dots work the best for adhering ribbon, buttons, and gems. I hope I have inspired you to make something "spooky" of your own. ~Kim

Happy Birthday lil' Sister!
Yes, our Fall birthday's continue. I love Fall A LOT and usually make everybody cards with a Fall theme, but for my sister this year I wanted to do something different. One of her favorite colors is purple, so this is me, going all out for purple...see tutorial below...
Happy Birthday, babies!
My adorable twin niece and nephew turned 1 year old this month. What a year and so blessed they have joined our family! As I've mentioned before, there are A LOT of Fall birthdays and A LOT of cards to share with you this month. These adorable Sesame cards I created from free clip art I found on the internet and just printed them on white cardstock via my color printer. The clip art was already colored in, so I didn't have to do that step. But you could totally print it in black/white and color it in yourself. I've been playing around with layering, punches, and framelits lately and these creations are what came out of that. It's not often I get to make a "girly" card, so I enjoyed searching for purple and pink things to compliment this card, and thought "Abby Cadabby" resembled my niece. My happy, smiling nephew always has his mouth open, so "Cookie Monster" definitely worked for his card.

This is the card I made for my Dad. Happy Birthday, Dad! Yes, another Libra...we have a bunch of them in the family! Even with my husband and three boys, I still find it really hard to make masculine cards. There just isn't enough good patterned paper out there for masculine cards. I've been dying to use this sporty paper for months and finally got around to making something with it. I thought the "football" theme went pretty well with the Fall season and my Dad LOVES football. Believe it or not, but I did NOT stamp at all on the front of this card...just the inside has a simple stamped birthday sentiment. And I think it turned out pretty good, I just cut and layered different paper pieces from the same collection. I love the red plaid against the black random numbers. It reminds me of football jersey numbers. I love to collect 6x6 collection pads for card making. The paper pads make it easy to coordinate the different patterns and colors.
