Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

Hope you enjoy peace, love and joy of this magical season.

I want to prepare a quick post to share my favorite Christmas card of the year.  At first I only wanted to create a card quickly as I was running out of time, but I ended up really like it and made a few more.  This card came together in no time at all!

Yes it's a photo card, my very first photo card ever!
I printed the picture at 4x6, then trimmed off 3/4 inch  off the very bottom of it to fit a regular note card.

I put a piece vellum on top of the picture,  where a sentiment was heat embossed in gold.  And that's it, it's done in seconds!

I really like that I could use a 1/8" strip of score tape to adhere to vellum to the top of the card front.  Isn't it always a challenge to adhere vellum?  In this case, the frame of the card base is the perfect place for the adhesive to sit on.  Yay!

Early this month, I took Meo (the cat) to Petsmart where we could take pictures with Santa.  It has been a long time since I last took a picture with Santa (perhaps since I was a kid??)  and this time Meo is also in the picture, making it very special for me.  I just really love it.  Sending a special picture to my loved ones is making me happy too! :)

Now that I know picture cards take no time to make, I suspect this will be what I send to friends and family in the future.  hahahahaha~

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays

Happy Friday!

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I am so not ready but I am so looking forward to the most magical season of the year.  Things will fall into place, I keep telling myself.

I'm sharing another Christmas card using Lawn Fawn goodies, of course!

I wasn't too confident with this card, but the more I look at it, the more I like it.  I've heightened the tree image by stamping the bottom portion of it.  Love this technique to add value to the stamps.  I've mixed and matched images from different sets, of course.  The cutest part is that the bunny is about to put a heart on the tree.  Oh so sweet.

When I am struggling creatively, I organize my stash and I also like to go through my old cards (through my blog, of course!)

I saw this slider card I made in a class and I thought I could translate the concept into a Christmas card........

So I literally just copied it using different supplies and it becomes

It is pretty fun and cool (pun intended) that the penguin spins from the top of the slider and lands on the piece of ice. It should be great for a kid. :)

Happy Howlidays

I have said it many times that masculine cards could be tricky.  That still holds true.  But I think that many Lawn Fawn critter images will bring a smile to everyone's face.

I've made this card for a guy friend who loves dogs. 

Remember I said the slide on over die is my new favorite?  I just have to use it on every card now.  Love interactive cards:

You may find this card look familiar.  It has the exact same layout as this one here.  The cards go to different household.  Hopefully they won't know about it.  Shhhh......

Happy Holidays

Are you done with your Christmas cards? Shopping? Tags?

I was pretty good in the last couple of years to start my Christmas cards early, so by this time, I would have sent out my cards already then I would just focus on the shopping (and shopping for myself, of course!).  This year, I blame the fact that I moved right before Thanksgiving, so everything was chaotic.  Needless to say my shopping spree was no longer focusing on craft stores, but hardware stores, furniture stores and such.

Faced with pressure, my creative juice does not flow as well.  But that's ok.  It's the most festive time of the year.  If my card wasn't the best, I'm sure people understand it because it's the thought that counts.  Right?  I'm trying to avoid making multiples of the same card.  But you'll see in my future posts that although they are not identical, they are extremely similar.

I am sharing one that I made for my nephew J today.

I have a nickname in my family.  It has something to do with bunny.  I'm trying to show my nephew things about bunny so he will remember me. :)

I'm mixing and matching new and old Lawn Fawn goodies again.  The patterned paper is from the Snow Day collection.  I used the little town border and stitched hillside border die to create the background.   The slide on over die is my new favorite!  Love to use it to make interactive cards!  The star of the show is of the winter bunny stamp & die.  Oh so fun!

I hope my 1.5 year old nephew like it.  I certainly had fun making it!

Back to cardmaking

I'm starting to settle in in my new place.  Boxes of craft supplies are still unpacked.  I barely got my table set up so I could make Christmas cards in time for the season!

I'll continue to share them as I make them.  Unfortunately some of them will be similar.  As long as the recipients do not know about the similarities, it should be fine, right?

This is probably the one that I like the most.  I'm mixing and matching Lawn Fawn products from different seasons!  How fun!  I use the Christmas plaid patterned paper and the 12x12 blue plaid paper for background.  Two snowbanks made the ground for the snowmen and I just added simple accessories for the snowmen.

I love the sentiment "friends warm the heart".  It's perfect for my good friend who has been supportive and understanding.

A quick update

My blog has been oh so quiet.  Well, it all started when my Cricut Explore broke down several weeks ago.  I somehow fixed it but it showed its attitude from time to time.  When it worked it's fine but if it didn't it is extremely frustrating.  Perhaps it's sign that I should upgrade my machine!

But the major reason is that I'm making an unplanned move.  It wasn't well-planned at least.  I had very little time to move.  Serious I just threw everything in my suitcases and boxes and thought I would organize in my new place.

Now most of my craft supplies have been shipped to my new place.  It is almost impossible to craft, but you know I am just itching to play!  So I played along Shimelle's challenge - go big with red:

This is the second to last thing I made before my actual move.  Will share the card I made later this week.

Oh deer!

It has been a while since I shared any layouts.  It was partly because I was waiting for prompts and challenges on Shimelle's blog.  Her blog was silent for a while because her phone was crashed.  But she got to immerse herself in the vacation without looking at the phone.  Nice!

She has returned and posted several challenges.  I'm excited to play along!

One of the challenges is to scrapbook the outdoors.  This is a challenge I *need*!  I still have a ton of pictures from my trip to Banff to document.

I decided to make a simple page to "warm up":

This page documents the story where we saw three deer going from the big to the small island inside the lake.   My family and I quietly watched them as they walk.  All hikers were amazed and speechless!

I was happy to play with a variety of products, including Crate paper patterned paper, Amy Tangerine stickers from Oh Happy Life, Kelly Purkey's project life cards from July Stay Cool Kit.

Now that I have the supplies out, I'm going to play more with them!

Christmas cards

This past weekend, I took a class with Kelly Marie Alvarez, one of the owners of Lawn Fawn.  We made four Christmas cards.  It was so much fun!

Kelly Marie was one of the nicest and sweetest teachers I have had.  She had everything organized. including time!  We had enough time to work on each of our cards at our own pace but at the end of the class we could finish them all without any rush.

The cards are all interactive.  Oh so cute!

This was the first card we made and it is the inside of the card, where the star of the show is at.  The snowy hills form a three dimensional platform for the fairies, the branches and the house.  Imagine you see these elements when you open a card.  It's going to bring everyone a smile!

Kelly Marie shared a trick with us while using this die - down and in.  After adding the bottom of the mechanism to the card, push everything down, then in, fold up the card to let the glue stick, then when you open it, magic happens because the interactive portion is stuck on the card! :)

I've got this die and now that I've learned this trick, I'll make cards using it with confidence!

We made this slider card using Jump for Joy.  The hedgehog jumps onto the pile of leaves which scattered around.  I learned that if you use a circular foam dot, the hedgehog will spin.  And if you use a square one it will go straight along the track.  :)

This is a very cute card!  Love the mermaid color!  If you open the oven, you'll see the message that is currently covered by the oven handle.  Isn't that fun?  I love the cross stitched border dies.  Time to check my budget......

This last one is rather small and simple but still cute and fun!  It is also a pop up card where the reindeer is sitting on a pop-up element.  It is a great idea for mass production.

So happy to have taken this class and I truly enjoyed it.

Now I'm off to making more interactive Christmas cards!

Z fold card/Swing open card

I'm continuing to make Halloween cards for my friend's kids.  Even though Wild card at Online Card Classes is over, the urge to make a fun/interactive card stays with me.

I realized that I'm quite behind on making all the Halloween cards so I summoned the help of my trusty helper - Cricut! :)

I flipped through the images and decided to create something simple.  This card came together at no time at all:

When the card is closed:

That's easy peasy.  I used the Artiste cartridge to create the card base, and also the two circles for the stamped images to go on the flip part.  The circle covers up the sentiment "Happy Halloween and the bat, but the web and spider are peeking out.

Love that it's fun and easy to make! :)

Pop up card

It's time to make Halloween cards for my lovely niece and nephew!

Although I make far fewer cards than before, I continue to purchase a lot of cute products in anticipation of making cards for them.

What's more fun than making an interactive Halloween card?

The card front is very simple but once you open it up:

The twist and pop mechanism makes it a surprise!  I had fun coloring the critters in various costumes and putting it together.  I have certainly had opened the card for 100+ times to see the fun but I never cease to smile once I see it. :)

A shaker card

I'm continuing to share another assignment I made for the Wild Cards class at Online Card Classes.

It's a shaker card today.

And if you shake it up the glitter would go to the top of the snow globe:

Cute and super fun to make!

But let me share a story behind it - I was actually hoping to put water in it to make it look more realistic as a snow globe.  I went to several stores to buy the materials and made it successfully.  I set it aside while working on other "homework" from the class, then when I went back to this card to take pictures of it.  Some images are smearing.  Eek!  I can't explain if I've put in too much water, or the zip lock was not closed securely, or the zip lock was made of low quality materials that it would leak.  But at that time I couldn't care less!  I just want to salvage it to the extent possible!

I was able to save the top part of the card (everything above the acetate sheet) so I re-created the scene. I was disappointed but I didn't let it kill the joy of making a fun card.  I completed it without filling it with water.  It's still cute, isn't it?

Four identical cards?

Can you tell the difference among the following four pictures?

Using the techniques I learned at Wild Card over at Online Card Classes, I have made this spinner card.  The interesting part is the balloon held by the bear.  As you turn the spinner, the color changes and so does the face, except for the orange balloon I've stamped 4.  Yes, my niece is turning 4 and I have no idea how she is growing so fast!

Last year I made a birthday card for her using the same stamp set, but there only 3 critters.  This year there are 4 critters and the card involves an interactive portion.  I sure did have a lot of fun making it and I hope she will have fun playing it.

Slider card

Hello everyone!

I'm sharing an interactive card that I learned at Wild Cards from Online Card Classes.  Oh boy, it is quite a time consuming process but it's definitely worth it.

The card looks like this when it's in the envelope (or just outside of the envelope).

Then when you pull the tab the colorful images from below will be revealed:

Finally when the tab is fully pulled out:

I love it!  The results are so beautiful and stunning!

Yes it took me a lot of time.  In fact, I was using the template given in class to create this.  No guess work and not much creativity involved.  But I tried to be meticulous on everything.  When in doubt, I went back to the class video and watched that session again and again.  So happy that I succeeded in making it on first try!

I am enjoying this class a lot.  If you want to know more about it, click here.

Sunshine Village

I have to make this post quick and simple because I'm trying to catch the deadline to link up to Shimelle's challenge.

She asked us to use her travel page as inspiration to create our own page.  I created a travel page based on her sketch, but mine is much simpler:

I do have another horizontal 4x6 photo but the lighting of these two photos do not match so instead of using two photos, I used a project life card from Kelly Purkey.  The middle and right tags are project life cards.  I cut them into a tag shape so my page can mimic Shimelle's.

To add some texture, I added twine and ribbon to the tags, cloud transparency and I've drawn some clouds using watercolor.

It's fun creating this page and I'll continue to tell the stories happened at Sunshine Village through other pages.

I am preparing a card for my friend who's having a baby shower.  Baby shower cards are always a challenge.

They do not want to know the gender of the baby until its arrival.  Hm.....that presents an additional challenge for me when I'm making a card for them.

I turned to the critters from Lawn Fawn - everyone likes them, right?  No need to debate whether it has to be yellow or green. Further, it does not necessarily have a stroller or a stork or a onesie on the card:

The fox and the owl came from the Jump for Joy set and instead of sweeping leaves this time, I made them hold the word congrats across the card.  I bet it's more fun and exciting than sweeping leaves. :)  I also used some Lawn Fawn stand-alone dies - the smiley face, the sun and the clouds.  Oh the grass and the stitched border too.

So much fun making this card, hope the parents-to-be like it too.

Lake Moraine

Today, I'm sharing a layout showing pictures taken at Lake Moraine.

I've used the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

My photos are landscape so I turned the sketch 90 degrees clockwise to create my layout:

I realized that I need some blues and greens to scrapbook this trip to Banff!  I don't have that much but I have a leaf patterned paper for background which gives me the opportunity to take the Challenge at Shimelle's blog - to use leaves.  :)

Lake Louise

During last month's family reunion, we went to Banff and other places.  We loved the scenic beauty!  The weather was not always the best but we kept on taking pictures regardless.  The views were just breathtaking!

I'm sharing one picture taken by my phone while we were at Lake Louise.  It was cloudy when we arrived. Because of that, we thought we would take pictures after our hike.  Guess what?  After the hike up to tea house, it poured.

I'm using the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy:

The beauty of the lake is best documented using a simple layout.  I'd like the picture to be the focus because I just wanted to capture its beauty.  It doesn't need a busy layout or many embellishments.  The picture itself should pop.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Even my journaling is kept to a minimal.

Killing time (and products)

Due to a lot of reasons, I had a lot of time waiting for my flight.  I took out my Ernie figurine and started taking pictures of him at the gate.  For your reference, this figurine is my travel buddy.  He has gone on numerous trips with me pre-iphone era.  Back then, I don't think there was something called selfie. So when I wanted to take a picture of a landmark, I either take a picture like I would a postcard, or make him the face in my picture.

Today, I take selfies when I travel thanks to my smart phones.  But I still take him with me on trips and take pictures of him.  I even make a layout of him this time.

Shimelle is challenging us to use floral motifs on our layout.  How am I going to use flowers with Ernie?

I used the floral patterned paper as the background paper, then put his picture on a stripe paper to create some contrasts.  Each cluster of the embellishments has a resin flower.  It doesn't seem to be a girly layout, does it?

Anyhow, I just wanted to document the things I did while waiting for my flight.  Further, I'm glad that I finally used all the products from the kit I bought at a show TWO+ years ago (did you see the plus sign?).  I normally do not use so many embellishments on a page, but here, there are four tags on the title, many resin flowers, buttons, and stickers.  That's ok,  I told myself, as now I have more room for new goodies. :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Do you feel that fall is here?

With the time of sunrise getting later each day, air becoming more crisp, and temperature getting lower each evening, I feel that fall is here.  My niece R's birthday is approaching and I'd better practice making some kiddo cards.

I had quite a bit of fun playing with the new Lawn Fawn goodies:

I've said it many times that I love how I can mix and match the new and old Lawn Fawn goodies.  They never seem dated and one stamp/die bought could be used in many ways.  Love it!

Here, I've used the new and popular Jump for Joy set for the critters.  To build the scene, I've used the Simple Stitched Hillside borders and a tree trunk from retired Sweater Weather.  I've mixed the patterned paper - the sky is the perfectly plaid from this summer's collection while the hills come from the fall collection pack.

Playing with Lawn Fawn sets is like pulling out all goodies from the closet then pick and choose different items to mix and match.  Making a card is certainly fun, but the process is just as fun!

Hello everyone!  I hope those who are in the US are having a wonderful long weekend.

I'm certainly enjoying mine.  Certain items on my to-do lists are done (finally!), and I had spent some great time with friends and also some for crafting!  So happy!

I have been meaning to participate in scrapbook/layout challenge and I'm finally making it happen!

On Shimelle's blog, she is challenging us to use lots of layers.

I've made a simple one-page layout using a lot of layers from scraps:

Layout challenges are certainly fun.  I hope to do more in the future!

Watercolor and bird

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I'm sharing another card made from my practice on watercoloring.  I actually just wanted to play with watercoloring, not so much about making a card.  I stamped the bird image on watercolor cardstock, then colored it and left it alone.

But now I realize that my co-worker F will be retiring so I want to make use of the colored bird:

I simply trimmed out a panel around the bird to fit the card base, add some gold foil tape (Caution, this tape is addictive!) at the top and bottom of the panel, stamped the sentiment "best wishes" and it's done.  So glad that I'm turning a practice into a card! :)

Watercolor & Cat

I have been trying to play more with my watercolors these days.  Watercolor in card making has been popular for a while but it seems to be continue to be favored.  I have several mediums but I'm not good at any of them.  Oops. :p

So I'll keep practicing.  Coloring is indeed therapeutic.  I did buy one of those adult coloring books but I found it quite overwhelming.  In contrast I love coloring stamp images a lot more.

I colored the cat from Purr-fect Halloween, this months' Stamp of the Month:

Another easy Halloween card is made. :)  I'm planning to make several this year for kids.  Great opportunity for me to practice water coloring.

It has been a long time since I could play and relax at my craft desk.  How I miss my craft goodies!

I started playing with coloring the flowers in the Hawaiian Hibiscus set.  I've tried different coloring mediums and I like this one done with watercoloring the best.  I've turned the images into a card:

It took me quite a while to arrange the flowers and the leaves.  Guess why?  There's a boo-boo in the lower left on the big hibiscus and I have to use the small one to cover that up.  Oops.

The pattern paper comes from the Florence paper pack.  It will retire after the end of this month.  Grab it while it's still available!  I purposefully wanted to use a more generic sentiment so I used Jennifer's Hand, an alphabet set to create my own sentiment.  We could always use more smiles on our face, right?  I used one of the card sketches in Make it from Your Heart - those patterns make my life A LOT easier.

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I'm sharing a Halloween card made with this months' Stamp of the Month Purr-fect Halloween.

I'm using one of my favorite sketches from Originals again.  See another one here.  The patterned paper came from the retired Taste of Summer paper from last year.  I used tone-on-tone stamping to create the pattern on the top orange panel.  Then I colored the cat using regular color pencils and fussy cut it out.

I love this set because you can mix and match the cat eyes and hats.  You can also fill the bracket shape with different sentiments.  Two step stamping is always fun.
