Cute Card Thursday

I got the inspiration for this card off of another site. I would link it here, but I can't remember which one it was. I knew when I saw this quilting technique that I had to try it. I started by cutting out small squares using my stitched squares dies from Lawn Fawn, then cut each square in half making smaller triangles. Next I arranged them in the quilt pattern. I found this one online just by googling "quilt patterns" Next, I cut out a square big enough to fit my quilted pattern on, and glued all the pieces down in the correct order. I matted the quilt on another stitched square and then again on the bigger grey, stitched rectangle. The stamped image and the "Together" die cut are both from the Stamps of Life, and I thought they were fantastic and a perfect fit for this card.

I am trying to do better updating my blog, so I wanted to share this great Fourth of July scrapbook page with you. This is actually from July 4, 2014, but I am just now getting around to finishing it and getting it posted. I know, I know, I'm a little behind, but hey we all are, right?
I really wanted to use my Lawn Fawn, Wish you were here stamp and die set, but it just wasn't enough. So, I cut out the starts, the firework and the eagle using my cricut (Independence Day and Artbooking cartridges). Then I used my Cricut Explore and the font "Stars From Our Eyes" to cut out the title. I found the font on DaFont.com. I really love that site, now that I have an explore. I really love how this page turned out and I feel that the black and white picture of my son and I really pops off the page.

My job has been keeping me really busy the past year. Though I have loved working for TSHA, I am sad to say that my time there is over. The organization moved from Denton to Austin, and it was not a move that I was able to make. So, I am on the hunt for a new job. The good news is that over the past couple of weeks, I have had the time to catch up on some scrapbooking and card making.
I wanted to feature some of the best pictures of my son, at his age 7 photo shoot, which I took way back in October 2014. We went up to the Denton County Courthouse and I feel that we got some really great shots. I had recently got a Photo frame die from the Stamps of Life and was looking for a reason to use it. I also used 3 different pattern papers, the first is a text paper under the 3 images on the left hand side, then the other two are the same pattern, but in different colors. I love that it makes the whole page feel cohesive.

Cut it Up
I haven't posted much lately, as I have just not been in the crafting mood. I have had a lot of changes in my life over the past 2 months, and just could not find the time or inspiration to create anything. Yesterday, I made myself sit down in my craft room and make something. To be honest, I tossed the first couple of things I made because they were, lets just say, less than pretty. After that, I decided to open up one of the card kits from the Stamps of Life. I thought this would make creating something nice a little easier. I love Stephanie's products and everything in her card kits coordinate so well. It makes it really, really easy. Hopefully this pulled me out of my crafting funk, and the ideas will start to flow a bit easier.
I made 7 cards from the October 2014, Stamps of Life Card Kit, titled "Hearts that Love." This kit came with some really great products, including: pattern paper, "Beautiful" word die with shadow, a mid-size stamp set, ribbon, twine, cardstock, exclusive embellishments & washi tape, tags, and envelopes. Hope you like what I made :)
