I absolutely love paper crafts!! I am a scrapbooker but my favorite craft is card making. It is so much fun to pick out paper, ribbon, embellishments and sentiments to send to someone special. I enjoy stamping, embossing with my cuttlebug and of course using my Cricut die cutting machine. I have two teenage sons and a dh who may not share my passion for crafting but at least will feign interest when I show off my latest project.
This is the card I made him. Gus is always good for a laugh!
I saw a project on Pinterest that inspired the tags for his gifts. You can find that project HERE

Today's card is from the new release from Scrapper's Delights. We have even more beautiful genies to create with now. In fact there is even an entire Genie category in the store. I just love the hair on this one. I colored it blue with some black instead of black with blue highlights.
It's time for another challenge at Scrapbooker PhD. The theme for this challenge is Digital with optional animal. We are sponsored by the fabulous Paper Shelter and I used their Jurassic Love for this project.
My usual process for card making is as follows:
1. Choose and image
2. Choose a card design
3. Choose papers
4. Choose embellishments
5. Color image and assemble card
For this card I turned my process upside down. I colored the image first and then chose papers and decided on a card design. Since I prefer to match my papers with the copics I use, I really forced myself to choose colors and papers I would not normally put together. I never would have considered putting teal, orange and melon together but for this image, I think it works.
Wow, I just realized it is the middle of July already! Summer is flying by. In just a couple of weeks I will be getting ready for my daycare to be full again and for preschool to start. Usually I am ready to get back into our routine but this year I want summer to last a little longer.
Here's a simple and sweet anniversary card. Since I need to mail this one, I made it flat and simply relied on my die cuts for embellishments.
I am super excited to announce that I am now a member of the Scrapper's Delights Design Team!
As part of the team I will be featuring projects I have made using images from the new releases.
How fun is that to be one of the first to play with the new images!
