Just my Type

Here is a fun little card with a fabulous sentiment and a cute little typewriter. I made it as a thank you card for a friend that’s wonderful writer! We get to collaborate quite often at work…and even come up with fun book titles we plan to write one day 🙂


This card is an entry for:

Just Add Ink #150

JUGS #173

All this card took was a mismatch of pieces from a scrapbook kit, some pearls, and of course the super cute sentiment from WPlus9’s “Quite Like You” stamp set.

10 Minute Craft Dash #4

This is my second post for today…so scroll down for the 3rd Day of the WPlus9 October Release…

I am super excited that WPlus9 is hosting Paulina’s 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge this week!

This is such a fun challenge! You have 10 minutes to make a project using the inspiration colors…and even though it’s definitely a challenge – it’s so much fun! I gathered some inks / papers and knew I wanted to create a fall themed Birthday card with the color combo.

Here is my take:

So I pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets from last release: WPlus9’s Happy Harvest

I started with a kraft base and embellished the Label Layers 3 die cut and stamped the sentiment. Layered it with a red crochet round and some stamping on a circle punch. A scrap piece of lace and some baker’s twine finished off this little country card.

What do you think? It was literally with 2 seconds left…so I definitely cut this one close! Make sure you check out all the fun over at Paulina’s Blog, and I hope you can play along!

10 Minute Craft Dash

So the number one reason I love making cards (other than keeping my creative sanity) is that they are quick & fun!

Of course I had to play along with Paulina’s 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge:


I just love those colors! I pulled out some fun & fabulous patterned papers & chipboard pieces to correspond with this card:


I love the “map” texture along with the “retro” feel of the car. And of course that fun font sentiment stamp from WPlus9’s A Pocketful. Luckily all the fun chipboard pieces & patterned papers made this card happen in under 10 minutes! I’m a pretty fast crafter when my mojo is right, and luckily thanks getting up early and a yummy breakfast I was ready to rock!

I hope you find at least 10 minutes in your day to make something pretty!
