Happy Thanksgiving Card

This card is based off the card I posted on Wednesday, but didn’t match the challenge rules because I used a stamped image.  I used some scraps I had sitting around I think they’re Jillibean Soup and maybe some old Scenic Route  The ribbons are May Arts and American Crafts with We R Memory Keepers Twine. I used Jenni Bowlin Inks and the October Studio AE stamp set.  Thanks for reading and happy crafting. And in case I don’t get a post ready for next week Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday! (because it’s a holiday too) ❤ Ann

Friendship’s Garden Guest Designer

I was asked to be the guest design team member for the challenge at Friendship’s Garden. The challenge this week was to create a Thanksgiving card that used 2 patterned papers, 3 ribbons/trims, and 1 die cut. The patterned papers are scraps of Bella Blvd I had the ribbons are American Crafts, twine is Creative Impressions, and the greeting was cut from a Hero Arts File on the Silhouette with cream Bazzill. I also used my Tiny Attacher.   Thanks for reading and happy crafting! ❤ Ann

Project Disney: The Photos

My favorite ups man dropped off the box from Shutterfly about an hour ago.

First there is the box..that inside holds all the photos for my project.




Inside were 6 beautiful orange folders

Inside each folder is a set of index prints that shows you what is in each folder ❤ that. It was easy to find the 4x3s that needed to be trimmed.


Here’s what they look like stacked the 4×6, the ones that need to be trimmed, and the index prints

Last all the 4x3s trimmed.

Now I just need to spend some time rounding all the corners and I’ll be ready to go. After separating the photos I realized I didn’t have many pictures of some of my favorite Disney events. So I have 75 free prints and I may put together a 2nd order of photos that I forgot.

Thanks for reading and happy crafting! ❤ Ann

Project Disney is my use for the Project Life kit designed by Becky Higgins.

Friday Card: Happy Day

This card is super sweet and simple to make. I used Simple Stories Happy Day 6×6 pad for the strip and greeting. I took another small piece and stamped the two balloons (Studio AE Cakes and Candles) I did use foam squares for the greeting and ballons. You could easily make this card without the stamping. You could use stickers, bows, you could even diecut ballons. I just happen to love and always have my Technique Tuesday stamps on hand that it’s an easy way for me to add some punch to a card.


Thanks for reading and happy crafting! ❤ Ann

Coming soon what a stack of 538 photos from Shutterfly looks like, and preparing them for my Project Disney.
