For this card, I used the Romance Novel paper from Prima, and a couple of little blossom from Prima as well.
This was very fun to make! It is a little “fiddly” , and I was limited on the size of my card, because the paper pad was only 6” x 6”, however, look at the sweet images (which are going to be covered up by photos I suppose!).
Playing with the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony paper, I’ve made several cards, and one little booklet. This is just beautiful paper, and I love making the peonies, they are a little bit easier than the rose. I’ve used a Graphic 45 large square tag just below.
The little card actually has what I like to call Azaleas for the flowers.
Below is Tag Folio – meaning that I took three long tags, folded up the bottoms to make pockets, and then created a little booklet or folio out of the,. The little folio has a peony, a rose, and several small blossoms that I made. I just love creating paper flowers! And the HFC die cuts make it so easy! I used lots of ribbon and some charms to doll it up. Isn’t it adorable? Slip a treat into one of the pockets, and it a sweet gift, as well.
This one is for the men, specifically my so -in-law, who had a BIG birthday last month! He loves kayaking, and he, my daughter, and their seven children went kayaking on his birthday to celebrate, so I thought this theme was only fitting!
There was quite a bit of fussy cutting involved in this and I tried to add dimension to it as well by cutting some elements out 2-3 times and layering each on top of each other, to mimic a chipboard element. There are a couple of cute charms in the corner as well.
This was a very satisfying project, and because it is double sided, has a very sturdy feel to it.
This is off the beaten path for me, but most of the men I know aren’t into flowers and lacy birthday cards. Fortunately there are a couple of collections (this one for instance) which are more appropriate for the men in my life!
So, I got a little insecure, comparing it to other cards I’ve made, (like the one I did for his sister two weeks ago!) and so I’ve made a second option. I guess I’ll let him choose which one he wants, it’s his birthday, after all!
I had a lot of fun working on this Birthday card for my daughter last week. Mostly I have used Heartfelt Creations Calla Lily paper, but I just had to have some “water” for my swan, and found a sheet in my stash for the mama swan and her babies to float on. The calla lilies and roses are hand made, using HFC dies.
There are two tags in the inner pocket, and a mini “booklet” that has magnets to keep it closed.
I had a great Mother’s Day – and I hope you did too! We started off with waffles & crushed strawberries for breakfast, and then my husband and one of my sons made a lovely dinner of quiche, arugula salad, a special stacked or layered jello, and finished off with keto style banana splits!
Doesn’t that look yummy?!! You start off with your typical Chaffee (one egg, 1/2 c shredded mozzarella, and 1 Tbsp almond flour) topped with crushed strawberries sweeties with just a touch of monk fruit, and all topped with real whipped cream, again sweetened with powdered monk fruit. It was delicious, let me tell you!
By the way, I get my Lakanto Monk Fruit and my Almond flour from Costco, and I only use extra large EB eggs. One Chaffee recipe makes two chaffles. It’s my favorite go-to food now a days!
The banana split includes banana, strawberry, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and whipped cream. Delish!
