House of 3

Omigoodness....I'm in love with this website/blog. I want it all! This is my way of sharing with all of you!

House of 3



Cards I've been making

This is to catch up on the last two months! I've been busy!

"Go Green" Cards. Sentiment on Birdie card is "Thank you." I didn't get a good picture!
Both cards made with DCWV Green Stack. I made the flowers by following this tutorial from Dawn McVey (thanks again for sharing! As you can see I love making them).

This card was made from scraps I had laying around from a DCWV mat stack. I stamped "happy" on these tags I bought from the Crate Paper Twirl Collection.

For this purple card I used patterned paper from Papertrey Ink (Bitty boxes and polka dot parade). I thought some glitter leaves might be cute for the leaves.

I was inspired by Spring with these cards...I know it's a little late for spring...but I thought they were cute. I used a font from my computer (DB Garden Showers from scrapnfonts.com). Paper is from Papertrey ink - Polka dot parade.

This is the card I made with my winnings! I used my new Mod Squad stamp set from Papertrey ink to stamp the sentiment and embossed it with ZING! embossing powder in Aqua. I thought that it was pretty cool that the embossing powder matched the rubons. The candlestick rub-on is from Hambly Screen Prints Silhouette (Teal Blue) collection. The paper is from the same company from the Mini Chandeliers Screen Prints collection.

This last card's explanantion will have to wait because the baby is crying! Hope you enjoyed looking...if you made it this far!

Until next time...maybe I'll get some of my quilts up here too!


I won I won!

How Fun! I thought it was pretty cool...

Sorry my blog has taken a backseat for the time being. I am feeling very creative and hope that as Evelynn gets a little older I get some more time to create things. I did make a cute birth announcement of her on Shutterfly. I'll see if I can get it uploaded to here.

A fresh start

I've been inspired lately by many different card blogs, scrapbook sites, and other craft sites. I wanted to be able to showcase some of things I've made. I made a blog just for this! I'm going to try my hand at this challenge:

Wish me luck!
