CC Designs January Review

Hello!  Today is review day of the January release at CC Designs.

I have come to the realization, or maybe now I've accepted the fact that I like making simple cards.  I see lots of cards that have a whole bunch of stuff going on and while that is visually appealing to me, I don't think I have the patience to make something like that all the time.  So this is my simple card featuring Love Letter Lucy and the Mailbox.  The sentiment at the top is from Adoring You.  I just love the paper with the clouds and hearts trailing down from them.  Too bad I couldn't use more of it on this card.

Here is a close up.  Lucy is popped up on dimensionals. 

Hope you'll check out more of the review at CC Designs.  So many adorable Valentine's ideas!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm like you, I love doing CAS cards and this is just perfect as it can be... Super cute and I don't like to many foofee's on my cards, although it can attract the on lookers but at times its way over board on many of them.... LOL!
Enjoy your hump day!

Your "simple" cards are gorgeous and I absolutely love them. They don't look at all "simple" to me tho. Have a great day!

Another cute card! I think it shows off your lovely coloring a lot more when there's not so many embellishments!

This card reminds me that I bough some mini mailboxes from the $1 bin at Target a few years ago....I should try to find them!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
