A little bloom

This is a very simple card. I wanted one that would be easy to use for almost any occasion, so I tried to keep it simple.

Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye Laundry Line special edition for Archiver's Scrap Fest; Flower: Prima; Button: Memory Makers Noteworthy Line.

I like how this card turned out. I have no idea about any of the products, but I love how everything came together. It is clean and simple, but with some nice impact.

Boy Birthday Card

This is a card I made using the Cogsmo line by Cosmo Cricket. I'm not really loving it, but not hating it either. Not really my best work, but then not everything can be.

Paper: Cogsmo by Cosmo Cricket, Stamps: Fiskars

Spider Anniversary

This is the second card in the set I made for my aunt. This one is blank inside, but I had thought it would make a cute anniversary card since the spider is holding up a heart.

Patterned paper, blue and cream cardstock and heart jewels by K&Company, other cardstock Archivers and stamp is Stampin' Up.

The first of a set

I made a set of cards for my aunt (and boss) for Christmas. There were 12 cards in the set, two of each type. I love making cards.....they're so quick and easy and most of the time they turn out great. I can't wait till Christmas is done so I can post some other gifts that I've made! Until then I'll post the cards in this set.

Here is the first in the set. A simple thank you card.

The stamp is Stampin' Up, patterned paper is K&Company, cardstock is Archiver's, and the flower is Making Memories.

Homemade Stockings

I posted this on my family blog too, but since this one is for all things "crafty" I thought I'd share the stockings I made for my family. They are either needlepoint or cross stitch and have been in the process of being made for several years now. I just finished stitching Mariana's today and got hers and mine sewn together and hung up this evening. It was SO satisfying.

Moments Together

I really like how this layout turned out. I took these pictures of Peder helping Jake with the dishes while I was on bed rest with the girls. Peder helped daddy with a lot of chores during that time and he was a good little helper....most of the time.

Happy Girl

The pictures for this layout really crack me up. Mari was a very happy girl, laying on the floor playing, until Emmy decided that she was going to roll over and did so right on top of Mari's head. So although I do like how the colors and papers came together on these pages, I love the pictures and they always make me laugh.

Another blog...

I started this blog so I would have a place to post some of my crafty creations. I have a lot of things that I create on a regular basis that I want to have posted somewhere on the internet. I will add to this regularly....I have a ton of completed projects that I already want to post. Some of those projects will have to wait until after Christmas, since I'm making some gifts again this year.

The first thing I will share is the most recent thank you cards I made. They all have the same general papers, but the flowers are all different. Here is a sample.
