Celebrate Your 1st Apartment




I know it seems like I have been away for ever!  I have been here!  However I have not forgotten you.  I will have tons to show u….promise.  I want to share a custom request I received and I really enjoyed it.  I was asked to make a 1st apartment card.  Perfect….it was a first for me!

1-IMG_6758The recipient was a male so not frilly fru fru. I needed a color scheme  and I had used my  “house cardstock Here on this layout.  What’s a girl to do…….Black and White!  TIP: That’s it, it can be masculine and feminine depending on your accent color(s).  Here I used CHERRY COBBLER for a crimson accent and added some Kelly/lime green.   I hexagon cardstock was my base layer and I added strips of crimson and green polka dots to bring the base of the card together.  I ran some gray cardstock through the BRICK EMBOSSING FOLDER and used WHITE INK SPRAY to distress.  I used an old stamp set, and fussy cut out the house.  My Base layer was complete.  The next to elements made me Giddy!


I don’t ofter get to use my WINDOWBOX DIE so I whipped it out.  This time I wanted  a Real Window …with reflection.  I cut out the window frame 3 times and insert a clear piece of cardstock in between.  Perfect.   I made a valance and was tickled pink!


The die came in handy for this layout…..sswweeeeeet!  Its a for sale sign so I used my dyno label and a sticker and I was good to go.


Normally I show this inside of this card however it was a personal photo and the actual apartment building.  Due to the privacy of my customer I will not reveal it…Trust me it was Cute!  See you soon!




Beale Street


How are you paper Goddess’s doing?  I am great and I have been crafting, DIY-ing and all sorts of things this summer.  Summer time always is a challenge for me..I want to enjoy the festivities but I also want to hibernate an MAKE!  Grr…so Torn!  When visiting my Mom we had always heard about Memphis in May, Beale Street, MLK Civil Rights Museum and the Lorraine Motel. This layout focuses on Beale Street:



I normally use one photo so I try to change up my style a bit here.  I tried to capture the macro and the micro.  I split the page, used stamps and stars and made the page busy…like the venue.





“Jazzy” royal thrones



1-IMG_5558I didn’t use a ton of dimension as it wasn’t needed.  What is raised the the location which is what ‘s important.



Silhouette cut titles my fave and that wrapped up Beale street.


Happy Summer!
