Box Set Dedicated to Dad


I do love a good gable box. I made this one many years ago with the Silhouette Cameo. 

This summer, I finally made some cards to go in it. These could be cards for giving or this set could be for memory keeping. I'm not sure how I'll use it yet? The papers on the cards are from Swagger by Fancy Pants. I know. I have a lot of old stuff in my stash. 
Great stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!

name that collection

I have a process these days that once I cut in a paper collection, I go nuts. However, today's cards are made from the scraps leftover from these collections. I created a "series" compiled of Tea Time, Classic Petunia, Sugar Hollow, and Lush Lilac. I think. All from Heartfelt Creations.

I think the purple die cut piece from an old collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. Also, I think that die cut has been waiting to be used from the days I had a Cricut Expression. I do miss the Expression! I have been using the Silhouette Cameo since 2014.

This little sentiment tag was cut from Lush Lilac. I must confess that I struggled with the tea paper. I found it quite faded for my taste.

Now, Classic Petunia is rich with color! I wish I had more of it. I believe the base paper here is from Sugar Hollow.

More from Classic Petunia. How easy to just trim away this pretty well and layer some papers together and voila! A classy card!

I think the middle piece with the ribbon is from Camelia Carnation. The roses were cut from the Wild Rose Paper Collection. I believe the leaves are from Classic Rose stamps and dies. I'm often too lazy to do anything with the center of flowers, so I decided it's my signature to leave them plain.

The clouds are from Lush Lilac and the flowers were stamped and cut from Wild Aster stamps and dies. The leaves are from Leafy Accents by Heartfelt Creations. The chubby bird is from Clematis Birdhouse and Trellis Cling Stamp Set and dies.

Woodsy Wonderland Series

I have a process these days that once I cut in a paper collection, I go nuts. Therefore, I created a "series" of Woodsy Wonderland.

Here, we have four cards.

I struggled with this collection because I found the papers and printed animals to be dark for my taste. However, I was able to brighten it up enough to make some delightful cards. All of the papers and bits here are from Woodsy Wonderland by Heartfelt Creations.

I'm a sucker for anything with little birdies.

I brightened this card with a white paper punched trim and a bright sentiment piece. The butterfly is from a Fiskars punch and the arrow bubble is a random bit cut from the Silhouette cameo.

How cute are these little animals!

The cloud is a bit from Wildwood Cottage by Heartfelt Creations. I cut it with a Fiskars punch. Notice the lush blue card base? Clearance Christmas cards!

How cute is this wee bunny! I die cut him from the Woodsy Wonderland paper with the 

This one is nice and simple. The deer piece is cut straight from the patterned paper and the sentiment is die cut using Ticket and Tags Die.

Silhouette Series

When I decide I'm going to do something cutting with the Silhouette Cameo, I cut a lot. I love the print and cut feature. I also love turning svg files into a print and cut!

Here, we have three cards.

This card is A2 Card Lightbulb Dad by Lori Whitlock. I made the lightbulb a print and cut. I did the same to the sentiment piece. So, the card doesn't have as many layers as the original file but it's still cute and was way easier for me.

This card is A2 CARD KIT - CONVO BUBBLE HEXAGON PATTERN by Kolette Hall. I replaced the paper arrow with little wooden ones.

I always need baby cards for coworkers! This one is A2 Easel Card Baby Rubber Duck by Lori Whitlock. I made the sentiment piece a print and cut.

Happy Camper Series

 I have a process these days that once I cut in a paper collection, I go nuts. Therefore, I created a "series" of Happy Camper by Heartfelt Creations.

Here, we have three small and simple cards. 

I got mere scraps of paper from this collection from someone on FB 
and I do love a good challenge! I used balloon dies, a drawer label, a border punch, and sentiment to piece together this card.

A cute birthday card for any good friend!

Just a bit of a hand cut banner, doodling with a Micron pen, 
and topped with a sentiment.

Using even less! Micron pen for the border, white ribbon, and balloon die cuts.

together we have it all

 I have a process these days that once I cut in a paper collection, I go nuts. Therefore, I created a "series" of Cherry Blossom Retreat with Spring Fling.

Here, we have a trifold card and two standard cards.

The large panels are from Spring Fling by Teresa Collins. The smaller pieces are from Cherry Blossom Retreat by Heartfelt Creations.

 I found this sentiment sticker, butterfly, and birdcage in my stash.

 I do love a cute birdhouse! This birdhouse is cut from the Cherry Blossom Retreat paper by Heartfelt Creations. The flowers and leaves were stamped and cut from Tweet Cherry Blossoms stamps and dies. And.

 Little fat birdies! I love little fat birdies! I use the Tweet Cherry Blossoms die to cut the birdies from the paper. The sentiment piece is Jillibean Soup. 
The chipboard tree is Echo Park.

Here, I layered up the Spring Fling paper and topped with bits from 
Cherry Blossom Retreat.

I love how easy it is to die cut flowers and leaves from HC paper! Perfection!

Harmony Card

Today, I have one card. It was just a hodge podge of bits 
leftover on my craft table.

The sentiment is from Happy Harmony by Stampin' Up! I have very few SU sets, 
but this is definitely a favorite. I have no idea where the paper is from?

The flowers are stamped and cut from Climbing Clematis by Heartfelt Creations. I do like simple when it comes to making flowers! I used the shaping mold for texture and topped with a pearl. The leaves are stamped and cut
