I made a nice little stash of cards this year (although far fewer than I’d planned on! 😅), using dies, stamping, a clearance find card stack paper pad, and a clearance card kit. Do you like to make Christmas cards? Or do you send cards this time of year at all?

Beside the Point
Used some of my DIY pencil embellishments for this page. <3 They were so little.
I loved making these cute little pencil embellishments from scraps! I used scallop deco scissors for the sharpened edge on the pencil. Very fun. <3 I’ll share more details tomorrow!
This is one of my favorite layouts, I think. :) The look on his face, his pride, and the design really fell into place. Thanks SG sketches!

An Afternoon of Art
Love our local art museums so much, and I want to pass that on to my kiddos. <3
4th of July Gift Tags
These Americana style tags were a free make and take I offered at my farmer’s market booth a few years ago. I love how the colored ink looks on the kraft cardstock, and of course, baker’s twine will always have my heart! I could see these tied onto a hostess gift if you were going to a BBQ or something. Happy 4th!
DIY “Washi” Sentiments
There were some beautiful washi stickers I saw recently, however, they had been a kit exclusive and I was unable to buy them. So, counterfeit it is! I went through my stamps, selected sentiments that were similar to the stickers, then matched up ink and background stamps to most closely mimic the look of the stickers I liked.
I stamped my background stamps onto vellum to achieve the translucent effect that washi gives, then heat embossed the sentiments in white to echo the original style. I ran the strips through my Xyron sticker maker, and voila! ;) Some gorgeous washi style stickers, all from my stash. If you scroll back over the past week, you’ll see the layouts I used these on!
On the Hunt
Searching for Easter eggs with my Great Aunt Irene. <3
