Cherish Everyday

Hello everyone! 
Happy Friday! I'm off from work today and starting a 4 day weekend...yay! Its a good thing too because my left hip has been inflammed from work and I had it injected with cortisone yesterday to help...Its raining here today in the valley of the sun! lol  So that means I will be crafting all day and making new cards...hope to get more up during the week. 
Today, I'm sharing a card that I have been wanting to make and it is part of Cardabilities #121. I seen the sketch and immediately printed it up so I could make it as soon as I had time. I finished it last night and this is my interpretation of the sketch. 


I found this one sheet of paper from K and Company that I had left from a pack. So vintage looking and love the teal color with kraft. The punch is from Martha Stewart, my latest favorite one from Martha. Lots of leaves from Cheery Lynn Designs and the Fishtail Banner for my sentiment that was printed from the computer.  


The sentiment is layered over a spellbinder diecut and I added lots of flowers and a ribbon. 


I had some softer pearls that was a perfect match for adding just that little bit more without going overboard. 


Here is the wonderful and beautiful sketch...Thank you! 


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! 
Hugs Lisa

Your Kindness...with Cheery Lynn Designs


Hello, Its Lisa back this week sharing more New Cheery Lynn Diecuts from this month's new release! I was in the mood for yellow this week and found these beautiful papers to go with all the new beautiful diecuts.  First, I love the A2 Step Card Bundle Set. It's so easy and fast to use, plus it has beautiful intricate swirls to add to your card. 


I used the Dutch Daisy Oval Doily onthe side of the step card. Then I traced the inside oval that comes with the Dutch Daisy Oval Doily and added pearls along the edges.  The sentiment was printed on cardstock and then diecut with Royal Scandinavian Tag 2. I layered it on top of the Dutch Daisy Oval Doily. The edges of the tag are pierced and it really is a wonderful addiction to your collection. 


The side view of the Step Card. I added 2 layers of the Feathered Friends to make the bird study attached to the front and in the background corner I used the Royal Scandinavian Tag 1. Last but not least, I added some flowers made with Medium Rose and Miniature Rose.

Pink Shabby Chic Happy Birthday!

Hello, Its Lisa back with a new pink shabby chic birthday card. 
It's for a old friend of my relatives. She loves pink and shabby chic, so this is right up my alley! 
I used lots of Cheery Lynn Designs Diecuts and one Memory Box diecut. The flowers are all pre-made and I had to use a pink sheer bow. 


I just love the Celtic hearts from Cheery Lynn looks! They are so elegant and I added baby breath around the edge and on top of the other heart with a couple light pink pearls on the bottom. 


I stamped the sentiment in black and behind the hearts you can see the fishtail banners...another must have in your collection of diecuts! The corner diecut is part of the new release from Cheery Lynn called  Royal Scandinavian Tag 1. Be sure to check out the new release.... 


Under the flowers, I cut and used half of a memory box diecut called La Rue Flourish. 


Thanks for stopping by and if its your birthday....Happy Birthday! 
Have a great day! 
Hugs, Lisa

Love the Paris Sign 4 , I printed out "Home Sweet Home" on the computer...I was also thinking "Home Tweet Home" would work too....lol You can wee the border here I layered it three times.

Friend...Thinking of You

Hi! 
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! 
I have been playing the last two days in my scrap room, which has been soooo nice. :) Today I'm sharing with you a new card that was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday #392 Contest. I'm not one that uses many colors, but this card has a few more than I normal. I think it was because of the vintage paper from K & Company. I had one light blue rose left so I added 2 roses in red to match the theme. 


A side view...I used the same vintage paper inside too. Its also super distressed from my Zutter. I was thinking of my friend who recently posted our memories of sun tanning with baby oil on black payments! Anyone remember those days??? lol


A closer view of all the beautiful diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs and the circle from Spellbinders. 


Last but not least the awesome sketch! 


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend! 
Hugs, Lisa

Birthday Wishes


Hello everyone! It's Lisa back today sharing a new card this week with Cheery Lynn Designs! This week's challenge is all about Flowers! Now who doesn't love flowers for their birthday? :) The Chrysanthemum Strip are such beautiful and intricate flowers that I knew I had to have them ASAP. I just added pearls in the centers.  For this card, I didn't use any patterned paper at all...that is because you don't need any with the Royal Scandinavian Doily. The details are wonderful and perfect for this 5x5 birthday card.  


A side view and as many of my followers know , I love bows! Cheery Lynn has a Pretty Pretty Bow  that takes only seconds to make...It is perfect for those who want to mail their card in a regular envelope because it can be flat and yet still be Pretty Pretty. 


For the sentiment, I used a birthday stamp on the smallest of the Circle Scalloped Stackers. I just used a mini punch for the little holes around the edges. Last but not least, I added some green Flourish Leaves. I just love the tiny details of the leaves. No stamping needed! :)

It's Your Day!

Happy TGIF! 
This past week has just gotten away from me....been busy with work and not as much fun time making cards :( I was able to make this card the other day inspired by this week's Mojo Monday # 391
I bought  huge bag of flowers from a local scrapbook store yard sale. I loved the color bright teal. I added the green for a nice contrast. 


I had to add some pearls and I found this stick pin in my stash. I thought it went well on the card.


A closer view....


A little bit of height with the pop dots. 


Here is the beautiful sketch! 
Thanks!
