Guest Designer for 3 Girl Jam

I was over the moon to be asked to be a guest designer for 3 Girl Jam.  I just love their ribbon and they even have flair, check out their site and if you decide to order use code KN10 and get 10 % off your order.  Since school is almost out here in Canada I have been busy making thank you gifts, I have so many to make and while the teachers are getting mini albums these are for the day care staff.  I used my pillow box maker from WRM and put a gift card inside.  I think these are so cute and they are a nice way to dress up a gift card.

Supplies used: 3 Girl Jam Tied Die pink ribbon, EP Springtime 6x6, Unity Stamps Sentiments, Spellbinders Labels 38

Mother's Day Cards and Second Sketch Attempt

This is the card I made for both my Mother and Mother in law for Mother's Day.  The last time I tried this sketch I was pretty literal with it but this time I took more liberties with it (that sounds kind of funny in the context of a card ;) ).  I am happier with the result but I think for the card set I am going to try something different since I don't think this is the sketch for me (I really struggled with it).

Supplies used:  DCWV Sweet Tangerine Stack, Unity Stamps, Spellbinders Labels 38, Caribbean Twine and CTMH Ink

FWF-My daughters creation

My 7 yr old daughter loves to scrapbook with me and with all the seriousness a 7 year old can muster tells all her friends and teachers she is a scrapbooker.  She made this card when we went to a church crop (she made a few) and I would love it if you could offer her some encouragement.  She loved reading the comments last time it really meant the world to her.  I love to encourage her creative side and I am very proud of her creations and I love watching her develop her own style (very different then mine she doesn't like floral paper gasp!!!)

Supplies used:  Shinhan twin touch markers, Unity Stamps, Sassafrass paper

Unity Friends with Flair

Wow I can't believe its Friday already, so I grabbed this quick sketch to make a card.  Not quite happy with how it turned out but I will keep working the sketch since I want to make a set of cards as a teacher thank you gift.  I have to get packing for a crop (why do I leave it to the last minute) but when I get a chance I will re work this sketch so that I have a set of cards I am happy with.

Supplies used: Spellbinders matting basics 2, Unity Stamps, DVWC Blossoms and Butterflies Stack
