Everything Sucks Mini Slimline Card

Hello! Sometimes things just are not going the way people want them to in life, and everything just sucks. Here is a card that is perfect for those times in life.

I first started by using the Maker's Movement Mini Slimline Die, some white cardstock, and some patterned paper from the Maker's Movement Cloudy Day 6x6 Paper Pack to cut out the background layers of my card. Then adhered them to a black card base.
Next, I die cut out some of the flowers from the Maker's Movement Large Stacking Flowers Die Set in black cardstock.

Then stamped the sentiment using the Maker's Movement Everything Sucks Stamp Set and added some enamel dots. A super easy card to make and cute enough to hopefully brighten someone's day.

Ornament Christmas Card Using A Layered Stencil

Hello! Today I am sharing a pretty ornament Christmas card I made using stencils.

First, I started with The Crafter's Workshop TCW6007 Ornaments Layered Slimline Stencil. Using the first layer of the stencil with the garland and some The Crafter's Workshop Stencil Butter in Terre Verte and Fern.


Once they were dry, I used the next layer of the stencil with the berries and three ornaments. I used The Crafter's Workshop Stencil Butter in Crimson for the berries and The Crafter's Workshop TCW9049 Tacky-When-Dry Gel for the ornaments and then let them dry. Once the Tacky-When-Dry dries, it will be clear instead of white; I pressed some The Crafter's Workshop TCW9102 Crimson Red Foil Transfer onto it, making sure the shiny colored side was facing up.


I used The Crafter's Workshop Stardust Butter Platinum with the last layer of the stencil with the rest of the ornaments. Then I assembled my card.

Harry Potter Crest of Hogwarts Card

 Hello scrappy friends! Today I am sharing a Harry Potter Crest of Hogwarts card with you all. The store is filled with many fun Harry Potter stamps, including this Crest of Hogwarts stamp I used on my card.

I started by creating my background by cutting strips of cardstock using a Slimline Strips Die and adhering them to a card front. Next, I added a piece of coffee-stained paper, then a die-cut circle. While I created the background, my daughter colored in the Crackerbox Stamps Crest of Hogwarts Stamp and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Anything Possible Stamp on the front of the coffee-stained paper and added the crest to the circle die in the middle.

Handprint Jeep Stickers

 My daughter got a Jeep and has been having fun customizing it. She wanted these handprint stickers to go on the side view mirrors. She showed me what she wanted, and I said, "I can do that," so I did.

I first found the color of StyleTechCraft Glossy Vinyl in Pink Fluorescent, which my daughter liked, and found the image that she liked too. Then using my Silhouette Studio Designer and my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut it out using the glossy vinyl settings. Once it was cut out, I weeded it using the StyleTechCraft Tools and layered it on a piece of StyleTechCraft Clear Grid Transfer Tape.

Then I peeled the backing off and applied it to the side view mirror. Using the StyleTechCraft Blue Felt Squeegee, I rubbed over the top of the transfer tape to make sure the sticker was flat with no bubbles. Then carefully pulled the transfer tape off, leaving the image on the mirror.

Here is what it looks like on both mirrors. So fun! If you look closely at the windshield, you can see where my daughter used the little Jeep that was part of the pieces I weeded out from the handprint.

Harry Potter Dobby Card

 Hello, everyone! Today I am sharing a fun Harry Potter card featuring Dobby. Since this weekend is Harry Potter's birthday, this seems like a great time to share my card.

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I began by creating the background for my card. I sprayed a dark green and some grey color sprays onto my mat and then sprayed water onto them to water them down. Next, I pressed my card front into the color spray and water mixture. Then I used a crackle stamp with grey ink to give it some texture.


I stamped the sentiment using the Crackerbox Stamps Dobby Likes Socks and colored the sock with a white gelly pen and a Copic Marker. Next, I stamped Crackerbox Stamps Dobby and colored him in with Copics too.

Christmas In July Stenciled Card

 Hello! Today I have a fun artsy stenciled Christmas Tree card.

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I started with a piece of The Crafter's Workshop TCW9051 Watercolor Paper and used The Crafter's Workshop TCW936 Messy Writing Stencil with The Crafter's Workshop TCW9052 Super Thick Gel.


Once the gel was dry, I sprinkled on some The Crafter's Workshop ColorSparx in TCW9057 Poolside, TCW9058 Alpine, and TCW9059 Grassland. Then misted it with some water. The Crafter's Workshop TCW9052 Super Thick Gel creates a resist to the ColorSparx, so I blotted it slightly to remove some of the colors from the gel.




Next, I matted my card front with gold cardstock, added a die-cut sentiment, and added some bling, and my artsy card was done.

Another Fun Birthday Card

Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

Using The Crafter's Workshop Bricks Vertical Slimline Stencil, I first stenciled the background with a blending brush and ink. Then I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Toilet Roll On Holder stamp and colored it with Copic Markers. For the sentiment, I used the Crackerbox Stamps Roll With It stamp. The sentiment comes as one stamp, so I inked and stamped the top part of it onto the toilet paper roll and then inked and stamped the bottom half. I then fussy cut out the toilet paper roll and adhered it to the card front with foam squares.

School Picture Scrapbook Layout

My daughter just finished 10th grade, so before she started 11th grade I thought maybe I should get her 10th grade school photo scrapped first.

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I used the Creative Embellishments School Rules ruler and left it natural just like the wood rulers and tucked it under the photo. The ruler actually says school rules on it but I decided to hide that part since my daughter doesn't really think it rules... lol
I also used a few Creative Embellishments Paper Clips and used some metallic silver ink on them and slide them over some of the papers. I really love these paper clips and they can be used on pretty much any kind of layout as accent pieces.

I also added a pretty flower cluster using flowers from 49 & Market to make the layout a little more girly. The paper is from the 49 & Market Old School Collection.
