Paper Pros - In A Name

Hi Friends,

It's time once again for the monthly challenge for the Paper Pros.  We are an informal group of  crafters that like to make cards with no pressure or theme.  This month the challenge is "In A Name" which means that we take the first letter of our first and last names and make a card with that theme.
Although I think it is a stretch, I went with Summer Day.  Hope you enjoy my summer card.

I saw a fun forecast so thought I would use it for today:
Unproductive with a chance of a nap.

I used lots of dies from Karen Burniston, you can shop for them by clicking any of the links below.

Stay Crafty,

Celebrate the 4th of July

Hello and welcome,

With the 4th of July celebrations about to begin I thought I would stop by for a visit and to share a Trifold Explosion Card for the occasion.  This one is a mini card measuring 4" X 4" with a belly band to keep it from exploding too soon.  I saw this fold on YouTube and really wanted to make one so here we go.

When the belly band is removed it just naturally wants to explode.  I made both the inside and outside from cardstock so it is thick but it could still be mailed with no problem.

I used some fun dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs, you can shop for them by clicking on the products below.

It's Steampunk Tag Friday @ A Vintage Journey

Hi My Steampunk Friends,

It's Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey and I love it because we are free to make anything we want as long as we stay within the Grungy, Shabby or Steampunk Style.  I have two tags to share today and I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed making them.

I used images from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante line (my favorite of all time). For my tags today, I went stash diving and came up with both of these tags that had been started but not finished.

This is the way I found these tags, one has the paper on the front of the tag and the other was added to an acrylic tag.  I punched some holes for gears and then started adding them along with some small flowers and black ribbon for the top.

Doing Steampunk is right up my ally, I collect and save parts of old watches and there are some gears(cogs)from an old printer that Mac disassembled for me.

Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to stop over at A Vintage Journey to see what the rest of the team made.

Until next time.

Hi Friends,

I have a fun card to share with you.  Of course you know I love using Karen Burniston's fabulous interactive dies and today I've combined the Upsy Daisy die set with some new Graphic 45 papers called Imagine.

I was inspired by a card posted by Karen Aicken where she used just one arm of the die set.  I used both arms on mine and used the awesome cloud background that Karen Burniston used for her flying tent card earlier this month. 

 I hope you enjoy!

Have a great week,
