Easiest Project Life Card Ever

Good morning, friends.

The card below is seriously the easiest of all the Project Life Cards I’ve made. I just added some gold glitter, a little ribbon, and done!  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  The cool part is that it looks so elegant — I’d be proud to send this card out.


Have I inspired you yet to make some cards out of your Project Life supplies?

Here is the Project Life kit I used:

Supplies Used:
Kit: Hello December 2015 Project Life Card Collection
Accessories: Cream Ribbon, Gold Glitter
Paper:  Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip

Good luck with all you your holiday preparations.  I know many of my friends are feeling a little stressed out right now.  I hope if you are feeling overwhelmed, you take some time to relax and also find some shortcuts.  I’m sending hugs and smiles.



Project Life Card

This next card was a true hodge-podge!  I started by cutting the green sentiment out and adhering it over a large white space on the red card.  You would never guess, would you?  The background red is also Project Life.  I cut it into two pieces 1 inch thick and hid the seam with the front card.  I then put a little ribbon on it, glued everything together, added some gold stars, and quick as a wink, it was done!

Project Life Cards – Easy Creating!

Dear Friends,

This whole week I’m going to be featuring holiday cards I made QUICKLY using the Hello December 2015 Project Life Card Collection.


This project came about because a dear friend sent me this kit as a gift.  Instead of making an album with it, I had the idea to make it into holiday cards.  It always seems that no matter how many holiday cards I make, I never have enough.  The thought of making a whole bunch QUICKLY and easily was appealing, so I gave it a try.

I love the results!  I never had to even pick up a stamp and I had gorgeous, professional looking cards with only a little modification.


I love the clean and simple look of the card.  The only thing I added was some sparkle and a gold star at the top. I matted the project and made it pop by using the deep red colored card base.

Supplies Used:
Kit: Hello December 2015 Project Life Card CollectionAccessories: Gold Glitz Dazzling Details (133755), Gold Glimmer Paper (133719), Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (133787)
Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Cherry Cobbler

Best wishes for a terrific week,


Holiday Gift Bag Holder – with Video

I am so excited to share my latest project with you.  I designed a gift card holder that’s easy to make — and flat!  It can even be used as an ornament.  I made it flat so you can fit it in a card if you want to mail it (though you may need to make your banners a little shorter.  I get carried away :))


Below is a video with instructions on how to put it together.  Click HERE for a .pdf sheet showing the dimensions and supplies used.

Hope you enjoy!

Fall Special!!

Dear Friends,

Many of you who read this blog live far away 😦  I decided to have a special for EVERYONE, but one that would especially be geared towards my non-local friends.

My fall special is a stamp kit!  If you place an order of $35 or more (before tax and shipping), you will receive a kit to make BOTH cards shown below.  If you place a $70 order, you will receive two copies of each kit, etc.  I also made a video so you can watch and learn how to assemble the cards.

Card #1


Card #2:


My goal in designing the cards was to make a kit that would require you to have as few supplies as possible since this is a crafting gift for you 🙂  Please see the Specials – Fall 2014 tab above for the details on this special.  I hope you enjoy it and please let me know if you have any questions.
