Cancer Support

Hello everyone!  Ok, one more Cancer Support project.  These are a couple of cards for a brother and a sister who are losing their father to cancer.  I used the same products on each card - just changed it up to make one more feminine and the other more masculine.


I cut the rectangular pieces with the My Creative Time ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  The two different pockets are cut with the My Creative Time ~ Fun Pockets.  The hearts are cut with the die in the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness.  The label is cut with the My Creative Time ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies. The sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Fun Pockets.  And the "love" is cut with the  My Creative Time ~ Family is Everything.


All of the pretty papers for the more feminine version of the card are from the Simple Stories ~ A Charmed Life collection.


And the papers for this more masculine version of the same card are from the Simple Stories ~ Take A Hike collection.



Well that's it for me today and that wraps up my Cancer Support week.  I hope you all have a great day.  I will see you again soon.

Cancer Support

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying my projects for this week.  I thought since I had to make so many of them I would just show them all in one week.  Even though they can be hard to make, I think they are so important and can be fun too.  So today I have a Cancer Support treat to brighten someone's day.  This one is for someone I know battling Melanoma.


I cut this treat holder using my Cameo and the SVG Cutting Files ~ Awareness Ribbon Candy Tube Holder.  The black, white and kraft cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  The black textured cardstock for the large ribbon in the background and the heart in the front is from Coredinations.  


I cut the small awareness ribbon using the Jaded Blossom ~ Awareness Ribbon Die and I tied a bow around that with some hemp twine.  For the label in the front, I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Ticket Book Dies.  The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Fight For a Cure.  The heart is from the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness.  And of course inside the tube are some super yummy M&Ms.

Well that's it for me today.  I hope you are finding some neat ideas this week to support someone you love who may be battling a tough illness or just some tough times.  Have a great day everyone!  I will see you all again soon.

Cancer Support

Hello everyone!  Ok, I'm still doing projects for supporting someone with Cancer this week and today I have a super fun card to share with you.


Hee!  I told you it was fun!  I cut this card using my Cameo and the SVG Cutting Files ~ Bra Shaped Card file. All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And the fun patterned paper is from the SEI ~ With All My Heart collection.  The sentiment on the front is the Jaded Blossom ~ Fight For A Cure.  I heat embossed that with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and White ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  I added a couple of little bows with some white ~ hemp twine.  And then in the center of the bra I added a little red heart gem.


On the inside, I added another sentiment from the same Jaded Blossom ~ Fight For A Cure.  And I cut the heart with the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness.  If you look really closely at the top of the picture, you can see that to close the card - I added a clear little velcro dot.


I absolutely love how this turned out and I think it's such a fun Cancer Support card to give someone fighting Breast Cancer.  Hope you like it too.  That's it for me today.  I hope you have a great day.  I will see you all again soon.

Cancer Support

Hello everyone!  I'm back again with another card today.  This time I have something a little different, it's for someone who lost their dog to cancer.


The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  I cut the background piece with the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  Then I used the large heart die in the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies to cut out the heart piece so I could frame the doggie.  I cut the little doggie with the MCT ~ Loyal Friends.  I cut him out about 3 times for dimension.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ Live Love Bark and I stamped that with Versafine ~ Onxy Black Ink.  And then I added the name using the MCT ~ Uppercase Fun Dies.  

That's it for me today.  Another quick card, but I just love how it turned out.  I hope you all have a great day. I will see you all again soon with another Cancer Support card that's a bit more fun.

Cancer Support

Hello everyone!  Unfortunately it seems that too many people around me right now are suffering from some form of cancer.  Totally sucks!  Here is a simple card I made for a guy friend of mine.  Didn't want to make it too girly...hope this works.


The white cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  To cut the shaped piece in the background, I used the JB ~ Fancy Topper Die.  Instead of folding it in half as many people do when making treat bags, I just left it flat and it makes a wonderful background piece.  I cut the ribbon using the JB ~ Awareness Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the JB ~ Fight For A Cure and I stamped that with Versafine ~ Onyx Black Ink.  The little heart is from the JB ~ Journal Calendar and I stamped that with Hero Arts ~ Red Royal Shadow Ink.

That's it for me today.  I have a few more Cancer Support projects to share with you this week.  Hopefully it won't be too depressing.  It's hard, but crafting isn't just for the good times.  In fact, it's times like these when I think something hand made really makes a difference.  Have a good day everyone!  I will see you all again soon.

Happy Birthday!!

Hello everyone!  Ok, I'm already back with another fun Jaded Blossom project!!  I think I'm in love and I see so  many crafty treat projects in my future!!!  Hee!  Who wants to see???  


Aren't they fun?!?  I cut the candle using my Cameo and the SVG Cutting Files ~ Candle Nugget Box file. Instead of filling it with chocolate nuggets, I added some skittles for the color.  :)  I made the tag with a die in the JB ~ Ticket Book Dies.  And the sentiment on the tag is from the JB ~ Dream In Color.  For the gift card, I used the JB ~ Scallop Slider & Topper Die.  Instead of using it as a topper, I turned it upside down and slid the gift card inside.  Fun!  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the JB ~ So Many Birthdays. And the heart border is from the JB ~ Ticket Book Add On.

Here are some closer shots:



That's it for me today!  I hope you enjoy my little birthday treats.  I'm just having so much fun with Jaded Blossom!! Can't wait to get more....hee!  ;)  Have a great day everyone!  I will see you all again soon.

*** Movie Night ***

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited today, because I have found a fun new company that I just love.  Actually, they're not "new" new, but they are new to me.  ;)  I'm sure many of you already know and love them.  And thanks to the enabling of a few of my online buddies - I'm totally hooked!  Ladies and Gentlemen ~ I have found Jaded Blossom!  They are a great stamp & die company that specialize in treats, party favors and 3D items.  Who doesn't love that?!?!

So here is my very first Jaded Blossom project:


Movies anyone?  You all know how I love giving gift cards and I am so excited to have found a fun new way to dress them up.  I made this super cute goody bag using the JB ~ Goody Bag Die.  The fun cardstock for the bag is from a Creative Imaginations ~ Magic Scrapbook Kit.  To decorate the front of the bag, I used the JB ~ Film Dies for the super fun camera.  The "enjoy the movies" sentiment is from the JB ~ Gift Cards Galore.  I cut the starburst using the JB ~ Candy Charms and Banners.  And the sentiment at the bottom and the "Date Night" are from the JB ~ Lights, Camera, Action.   My favorite part to the left of the goody bag is cut with the JB ~ Gift Card Die....LOVE IT!!!  Isn't this super fun and super cute?!?!  You can bet you will be seeing more projects from me using Jaded Blossom products!!!!  LOVE!!!  To check them out for yourself click here.
