May All Day Crop Fun

Thanks to everyone who joined us today at Bethel Hill Church.  We had lots of fun - inspiring each other.  That is what I love most about getting together to craft - all the ideas and inspiration we share!  Here are just a few of the beautiful handcrafted items from today.

 This is a beautiful card made by Sue.  The colors are much prettier in person, but you can get the general idea.  She is fairly new to stamping so she borrowed my CTMH "How To" card making books.  She was inspired by a pattern on page 53 of the Wishes book called "Delightful Dots".  Then she looked through her paper and borrowed a few of my stamps and  just look at her creation!  Sure looks like she has been stamping for quite a while to me.

The next project is something I made to give everyone that attended.  It is a tiny little box cut with the Artiste cartridge using Ivy Lane Paper.
When Sue H saw my little box she was inspired to create a larger version for a gift.  She used a discontinued CTMH paper called Roxie.  The colors are just beautiful!

Sorry, I neglected to take photos of other projects, but you get the idea of how we can all inspire creativity in each other.
We will be holding another All Day Crop at Bethel Hill Church on Saturday July 19, 2014 from 10AM to 5PM.  The cost is only $10 for an entire day of uninterrupted crafting time!  Please contact me at if you would like to join the fun.  Space is limited.

Anniversary Card

Here is an anniversary card I made recently.  It uses the Balloon Ride paper pack.  The card is a swing card cut from the Artiste Cartridge.  It is Accent 1 on page 52 of the booklet.  There a NINE different swing cards on the Artiste cartridge.  The coordinating shape was cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge in Sorbet Cardstock.  It was cut at 2 1/4" and is found on page 62 of the booklet. The numbers were also cut using Art Philosophy.

 The inside uses the coordinating oval shape from Art Philosophy.  Happy Anniversary is from the retired stamp set B1303 Golden Years.  The celebrate is from B1417 Perfect Fit Birthday.
This card would also make a great birthday card by using the recipients age on the front.  Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything.

Joyful Stars May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars May Blog Hop.  If you are coming from  Krista's Blog, you are on the right path.  If you get lost along the way, just go to Joyce's Blog for a complete list of participants.Today, I'm excited to share a "Sweet" card.  It was intended as a birthday card, but you can also use it as a Mother's Day card just by changing the sentiment inside.  The card was inspired by one on Pinterest at KB Papercrafts here

 The cupcakes and scroll sign were cut using the Artiste Cartridge.  The scallop border was cut using Art Philosophy.  The awning uses our new striped embossing folder and then was swiped with Lagoon Ink.  If you would like more detailed cutting information, just leave a comment and I will send you the details.  

Here is a peek at the inside.  The frame is cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  You could change the sentiment to use it for a Mother's Day card.
Thanks for visiting this month. Now hop on over to Helen's Blog to see her wonderful creation.  
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms too!
