Breath the Ocean Air

One of my old bosses birthday was this week! She was always my role model in life. A very genuine, kind hearted, loving person and that's always stuck with me. 
 I know that her family/friends have made it to the Oregon coast regularly for some time by the ocean. 
 The few times we have been to the Oregon or even Washington Coast, I always loved to see the lighthouses. 
 I found these Blue Moon charms and decided to incorporate them into the card for two reasons, one it can be the sun. Two if for any reason the recipient doesn't keep cards, she can remove the charms and use them in a necklace if wanted! 
 The sailboat portion of the card is sunken in for more depth. 
I also added some blue moon rocks in the sand area. Looking for seashells, glass rocks, and other sea life on the beach is always fun!

Materials Used: 
DCWV Coastal Stack with coral in it (found at Michael's)

Under the Sea

Today I am on SVG Attic's blog with a very fun set that I got to make using two of our set files, the 'CG Under the Sea' and 'JGW Fathoms Deep'.

 This little beach shack is perfect for putting a treat inside! 

 I think this is my favorite card of the set! I love the depth and layers of it

 The submarine is from 'JGW Fathoms Deep'

 Under the belly of the sub is a great place to put a gift card or other goodies. 

 And to finish off my little set, here's a spinner/slider card

Materials Used: 
DCWV 'Coastal' stack (found at Michael's with the coral colors)

Enhance, enhance

Okay so, I had a customer request a fun card for a friend getting a little update done.
I had a lot of fun doing this card! I enjoy stepping back from cutesy stuff and doing random off the wall challenges!

DCWV's Classy Copper stack was perfect for this card, although I don't think they ever thought this would come of the stack!

No Lion!

Sunday September 11th was Grandparents Day! I always try to do a little something to show the grandparents who are active in my children's lives that they matter! 

This Peek-a-Boo card came to me after I had designed a whole other card for this theme! I loved the idea of dandelions and a lion to go with the sentiment. After designing the first card, I decided that the peek a boo card would actually blend the two better. 

 I had to actually consult one of my tutorials on my blog to do this card, but it came back to me and was super easy to make.

UP in the sky

Woo wee this card took some time! I spent an entire full 9 hours on the balloons/house alone! 

For Grandparents day, what is more fitting than doing a replica of the best Pixar love story, UP?! 

I found Ellie and Carl on Kraftynook's blog awhile ago and I decided to use them for a great z-fold card!

Magical Fall Time

Today KaDoodle Bug Designs is releasing a new fall line of files. The design team has been hard at work getting different projects done to show the fans before the release. 

For your chance to win a free file, go to and comment on any DT members project using the newest file. 

This is my project using the Autumn Unicorn and Fall Border files. 

For the acorn card, I took bits and pieces out of the Fall Border file and made a 4.5 squared card.
