Mother's Day and Father's Day...a tad LATE!!

Hey Y'all!!

In catching you up....in case you missed it on YouTube...My Mother's Day and Father's Day Cards!

I made videos and took still shots!  Yay for me this time.  :)

For my Mother's Day card...I wanted something country and beautiful.  So, I pulled out my Graphic 45 French Country paper that I got from Blitsy.  I didn't think this was going to be one of my favs of Graphic 45, but when it got here...I was sad I only ordered a few sheets.  This paper is beautiful and how could I doubt that Graphic 45 would make something less that amazing.  :)

So, I went with it!!  I also used some extra items, like seam binding, My Favorite Things Flourish die, rose buds, sunflowers, burlap, and black card stock.  I explain my process in the video below.

Here's the video...


Here's the still shot...


Now, my Father's Day Cards...

My brother asked me to make him one to give our dad as well.   So, CHALLENGE...to come up with 2 masculine cards.

For the first card, I had a card kit that has been in my stash for a VERY long time.  I recently saw the pack at a Tuesday Morning store though.  It made me think...I need to get that out and use it.  So, I pulled it out and a lot of the card bases and embellishments looked more like girly items.  So, I had to rethink it a little.  They ended up looking kinda plain to me.  BUT, my Dad is always happy with whatever I make him.  He says that my handmade item is much better than store bought.  The second card, I used an embossing folder and a stamped image.  I also pulled out my blast from the past Creative Memories oval cutter!!

So here's the video on both cards...it looks like bad quality for some reason!!  BUT same camera...


Here are the still photos...loving instagram!!



Thank you so much for stopping my my poor neglected blog.

Have a great weekend!!
