Friday is here....Friends with Flair Post 4 U


TGIF (I think I say this every week.... :))
I love this cute little house!  No need for a sentiment here........the house "says" it all.
The papers are some of the October Afternoon that I got with this past {ippity} release.
I have 6x6 sets of this paper available for sale right here on my blog!
I also added some twisted burlap to this card........also for sale in my Etsy shop!  You can get there by clicking over to the right here on my blog.
This twisted burlap is a little thicker than the twine I use and the ends fray for a great effect.
I have it in brown, ivory, and natural!
Check out the post below this................
I have put together a mini kit to be used for scrapbooking, cardmaking, or journaling.
I have plans for putting more kits together and selling them in my Etsy shop.
The ideas are running through my head and keeping me up at night - crazy, I know!!

{ippity} Simplicity...


Just a quick post today with a 5 x 5 card in black and white!
I love this heart from the {ippity} kit - Music of My Heart.
This kit is an older release, but I still have it for sale and just love the stamps in this set.
This flourish heart needs to see more ink for sure!
The space in the middle of the heart is tiny, so my Papertrey Ink - Mixed Messages set was a perfect pairing here.
Be sure to check back.............new {ippity} is releasing on August 12th!!
I have my order in and you are going to love these kits!!  Something for everyone!!

Ribbon, twisted burlap, and more to come...

If you have not seen it yet, I have a begun selling ribbon and such over at my Etsy shop.
I currently have twisted burlap in 3 colors - brown, ivory, and natural.
This is a little bit thicker than your average twine - but still works great for cards and even better on scrapbook pages.
Price $3.50 / 10 yds.
I also have this super cute plaid/gingham elastic ribbon in yellow, pink, and black!
This works wonderful for trim on cards and I've even made some flowers with it.
Some thread and a button...........possibilities are endless
Price $1.50/yd.
Below is some very pretty grosgrain with scallops designed into it.....
this ribbon is very soft too, easy to work with.
(some grosgrain can be stiff, this is not!)
Right now I have it in blue, raspberry, and yellow......if it is as popular as I think, I will carry the other colors as well.....we'll see!

Price - $1.25 /yd

If you are interested, you can either stop by my Etsy Shop---->HERE
OR
Shoot me an email and I can invoice you via Paypal!!

Friday = Friends with Flair

Very quick, very simple. This is one of those smaller cards - many call them scraplings.
I was on a roll the other night and wanted to use up some scraps, so I put some of these little cards together. They always come in handy!
This one uses Distressed Dots Background by Unity and
the sentiment is from {ippity} Love in Return.
The buttons are from my stash I have from Papertrey Ink!
Off to watch the last day of soccer camp!
Have a great weekend!

Quick Card to share...

This is another small 4"x4" card made using the Labels 1 Nestabilities. I use the largest of the dies, score the top of one at 1/4" and adhere it to the other die cut.
Makes a cute little card.
For this one, I used an oldie but goodie from the {ippity} kit:
I love this little willow tree from this kit!!
I still have this kit for sale too..........only $14.95 and available on my blog.
I stamped the sentiment on the inside because I love the simplicity of the tree alone on the front of the card.

{ippity} Gift Card

Today I'm sharing a gift card holder I tried using my SU! Topnote Die...
These are pretty easy to make and this one turned out nice.
I used the following {ippity} kits:
The paper on the front is new from PTI - Library Ledger (I love this stuff!)
See how perfectly the gift card sits on the inside! I think I'll be making lots more of these to have on hand!

Inspired me to use some butterflies.
These beauties are from the {ippity} kit...
(from the 2010 Winter Collection)

I stamped in Soft Suede on White PTI card stock, colored with my Barely Banana SU! marker and then added some SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
I love the Kraft, Yellow, White color combo right now......very crisp!!
The sentiment is from PTI Mega Mixed Messages - one of my "GO TO" sets!
