Shakin It Up!

Sunday, January 19, 2020

 It's Day Three of Kat Scrappiness Valentine's Day reveals!  If you haven't seen the fabulous Acetate & Shaker Card Kits in the store, you really need to check 'em out!  They are amazing and super easy to put together.  Add some of your favorite Kat Scrappiness sequins and/or sprinkles and you'll create a super fun shaker in minutes!

Tomorrow, on Release Day, there will be several Valentine and Love themed Acetate & Shaker Card Kits available like the one above called Heart of HeartsI used Sweethearts, Pink Hearts and Red Hearts sprinkles inside the heart.  Creating a front fold card, I added the completed shaker element on the front of the card then used the "Sweet" word die cut from pink cardstock, adhered the word on top of the hearrt shaker.  The sweet little hearts are from the Say It With Hearts die and I made one to look like a strawberry to coordinate with the sprinkles :)

My next card features the Say It With Hearts stamps/dies.  I layered eggplant cardstock and coordinating pattern paper to the card base.  Using the Say It With Hearts die, I cut different cardstock and pattern papers and arrange the hearts.  I then added Purple Heart and Hot Pink Heart Sprinkles on opposite corners and placed the sentiment in the center.  Super easy, yet I like how it turned out!


Saturday Coffee Cafe - Coffee Cup Cutie

Saturday, January 18, 2020

Hey, Friends!  Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe -- I'm so glad you were able to stop in today!   If you're like me, you could use a breather.  I know it's only the 18th day of 2020, but I've been going non-stop and feels like it should be March! Let's grab a cup 'o joe and I'll show what's been happening in my craft room.

Cuteness!  I had so much fun putting this card together and got to play with several items that hadn't been opened yet.  I'm sure you can relate to finding a few brand new goodies in your stash :)

The cup shaped base was created with Trinity Stamps Coffee Mug Die.  Using the die, I cut the front from a new pattern paper from Pink & Main ('s a sneak peek).

And how cute is that little kitty sticking out the top?!!  She's from Waffle Flower Be Her set.  The fun sentiment is from Lil Inker Designs Coffee Talk 2 set.  It was hard to choose one sentiment from this set because they are all super!

 I love that the Coffee Mug Card Die comes with a gift card die, too.  Perfect for the inside and to tuck a little surprise gift.  

The sentiment says exactly what I want to do today - how 'bout you?!


I [Heart] You!

 It's Day Two of Kat Scrappiness' January Release!  Be sure to stop by the Kat Scrappiness blog to see all the fabulous reveal projects from the Design Team and a chance to win prizes!

My first card (above) features the new Floral Heart die -- isn't it beautiful?! I added small glittery sequins from the Be Mine sequin mix to the flowers on the die cut.  The 'love' word diecut is from the I Love You Shadow die and the sentiment is from the Say It With Hearts set.

My second card features the fabulous Valentine's Day Word Search die.  How fun is this?!!  I poked out a few of the letters to say "XO U Are Cute" and placed red glitter cardstock behind the openings.  The sweet little owl is from the Merry Critters set and the heart embellies are Red Heart Sprinkles.

Love Is In The Air with Divinity Designs

Friday, January 17, 2020

 If you haven't seen the newest Divinity Designs release, you're in for a real treat!!

 My card features the new Triple Step with Layers Card Dies which creates an extra special card base giving lots of dimension and a simple way to create a scene! The adorable images are from the new Somebunny Stamp/Die Duo.  I just LOVE these sweet bunnies!

 To complete this gift ensemble, I used the new Sweethearts Collection Paper Pad and Candy Carrier dies to create this darling little chocolate nugget carrier!  The new Mini Tag dies add the perfect touch.





Exciting News!

 I'm happy to share some exciting news!  First, I'm thrilled to have been asked to be on the Kat Scrappiness Design Team - and second, new Valentine's releases are starting today!!


First up is the new Valentine's Day Sentiment with Shadow dies!  For my card, I layered red glitter cardstock to the card base.  Using the Say It With Heart die, I cut a dotted pattern paper and placed acetate over the openings.  I then placed the 4mm Gold Heart sequins at the bottom before adhering the dotted paper.  The Valentine's Day Sentiment 'shadow' was cut from white cardstock and the words from red glitter cardstock.

 Next up is the new Heart Panel Die...

This die makes it so easy to create a fun Valentine's Day, Anniversary or Just Because card!

 I layered light gray cardstock to the card base.  I then layered a panel of heart paper to the right side of the card and the Heart Panel cut from pink cardstock to the left side.  I used the I Love You with Shadow dies for a bold statement - the words were cut from silver glitter paper.  To finish, I added tiny hearts from the Sweethearts sprinkles mix.

For my card, I layered a taupe colored cardstock to the card base then cut black cardstock from one of the new background dies: Fancy Lattice.  Isn't it fabulous?!  I then used the new Gorgeous Vases stamps/dies which truly are gorgeous and so versatile!  To finish, I added the sentiment from the new Spring Sentiment set and cut with one of the Sentiment Strip dies.
