Hi everyone!I have been having some camera issues – so I apologize for the lack of cards posted! The camera I have is ralatively new (to me anyways) and I couldn’t figure out how to make sure the images saved on my SD card. Luckily though, I think I figured out the problem – so I will be having a new card up within a day or two.In the meantime, I thought I would offer some free goodies! Everyone likes goodies, right?
These are in PNG format. If you’d like them in JPEG just let me know.

Let me just start off by saying, this month has been crazy. I have managed to make a few cards, and I hope to have the time to share them with you all very soon. For now though, I am posting to share a specific card that I made using the June stamp of the month from From the Heart Stamps. It is a very cool challenge blog/community that you should definitely check out.
Well, without further ado, here is the card I created using their June stamp set –

I hope your having a fantastic Sunday! Ever since I had to move my blog, I have been trying to rediscover my place on the internet. Many of the places I used to go are inactive, or simple don’t exist anymore.
So, I decided to join a new group called The Outlawz that I have seen many times via Paper Playful. You can find the group here if you’re interested.
One thing that I really liked as soon as I was accepted is they have a different themed challenge each day! What a great way to inspire some creativity and of course get acquainted with everyone. I decided to enter their sketch challenge, and of course I wanted to post the card I made on my new blog!

If you’re like me, then you’ve probably waited until the last minute to look for and finally find the “perfect” image or digi to use in a holiday or seasonal craft. Sometimes I get so caught up in looking around, I end up with a folder full of resources and nothing done by the end of the day.Some of my favorite websites to browse are royalty-free clip art sites. I listed a few in my last post, and for this one I decided to share with you some of my favorite Easter and Spring images I found using those sites, so that (hopefully) you won’t have to!Please keep in mind – these images are totally free and you don’t have to link back to anyone for them as they are public domain. Which usually means they aren’t overly intricate or fancy, but they are certainly nice to have.I am thinking of putting together another round-up post of free Easter digi’s that are available, if anyone is interested please leave a comment! Especially if you would like your digi and website featured!
The images will be after the jump – they should appear as a smaller size, just click to open the full size image to save and print, or whatever you may do with them. Enjoy and happy crafting!

I’m always looking for new and creative ways to save money on my crafting supplies. From making my own distress ink sponges, to finding ways to use every bit of scrap paper.
Not only do I look on other blogs, Pinterest, and other websites for ideas, but I also try to look at the things I have readily available that I may have not considered in the past. Some of the things I have come up with over time, I haven’t seen others post about or mention, so I thought I would make a post with a short list of ideas.
Regardless of if you make paper crafts/cards as just a hobby, or if you sell your creations online, I hope these next few tips can help you keep your costs on supplies down and inspire some creative thinking in your future projects!

First off I wanted to say that I just downloaded the trial version of Photoshop It is a bit daunting at first but I think I am getting the hang of it. I haven’t completed my first project yet, as I tend to focus a lot on the details, although I must say that I think the details are what really make a project unique and special.
Due to the current project i’m working on, I made a postage stamp template that although you can find easily online, not only did I want to try out making templates on Photoshop (this is the first template I have made) but also I wanted it to be a certain size, as well as the ability to print only one or two instead of full sheets like the examples I have found.
If you’d like to see my finished project you can either subscribe (right panel) or check back within the next few days.
When I was making the postage stamp, at first I made it specifically for my project instead of just a black and white template, So I am also including two pre-colored digis that you may alter however you like.

I just wanted to share this pocket card I made over the weekend with you.
It features a pocket insert so the sender can write a message (unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the insert itself but I did decorate and embellish it as well). I also included a mini clip so that the sender could attach a gift card or money without it getting lost at the bottom of the pocket.
The little embellishment on the front (which reads Make a Wish!) as well as the paper came from a mini paper pad and kit I got from wal-mart awhile ago. The purple striped ribbon is from All That Scraps, and the letter stickers are from two different card kits from Simon Says Stamp.
This was my first time working with letter stickers which is why they aren’t perfectly straight, although I think that without them being so kind of adds to the “homemade” look.
I’d like to add this card into the following challenges:
The Perfect Sentiment – Make it Feminine
Bearly Mine Challenges – Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - The Letter B (Birthday, blue, bow, black)
That’s all for now, thanks for looking!
Today I have a card to share, which is based on two different challenges. The first is based on the second round of the CDAC progressive challenge which requires the use of the rainbow and cloud image featured in the card below.
The second challenge is one from one of my subscriptions on youtube called the Happy card challenge. It requires either the color yellow or a rainbow, and I was able to include both in this card.
Here is the card:
Again the rainbow is a digi offered by thr CDAC challege, and the sun/sentiment was a freebie I found a couple weeks ago. I also included a picture of the inside of the card that shows a spot to write a message, which I was able to make using the scraps from the patterened papers on the front of the card. The papers are from a 6×6 pad I purchesed on blitsy a few months ago called Hello Spring from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Thanks so much for looking at my new card and check back for some great news as well as a new card I have to share!
For the past few days I have been scouring various blogs and websites through pinterest, looking for inspiration and ideas I can come up with to flesh out into some worthwhile content.
Lately pinterest has been a kind of resource staple for me, no matter when I research certain topics or interests, no matter how specific or off the wall it may seem, thereis always such an abundance of information. I find myself trying to absorb as much information as I can, bookmarking pages, jotting down notes, and ending up with all this great information.
I seem to always end up getting stuck in the same place though, I have an idea, I know where I want to go with it, but fleshing it out into a substantial blog post seems like such a familiar hurdle I can’t seem to pass.
So I end up back where I started, looking for information, ideas on how to get past a new obstacle, going in circles.
At this point I think my best angle is to try some of the tutorials I have been planning on trying out and making a post based on that. So, on that note, I will be posting soon with a finished project, so be sure to check back in.
When you seem to be stuck on writing a blog post, do you have any tricks or tip you use to get past the initial hurdle? I’d love to hear some feedback!
