Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Hi everyone :)

This weekend is the Operation Write Home blog hop.  If you are unfamiliar with Operation Write Home, it's a wonderful organization that helps keep deployed military personnel in touch with their families with handmade cards.

Momenta and several of the other companies that are participating in the blog hop have wonderful giveaways on their blogs... I hope you'll have a chance to hop along!

I used Momenta's beautiful Butterfly Garden Pyramid Paper Pad and accessories along with some lace from my stash for these cards.

We designed our cards based on sketches provided by Operation Write Home.  This is the sketch that I used.

Click this picture to start the blog hop.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Eyelet Outlet Projects

Hi friends!  I have a few projects up on the Eyelet Outlet blog this week which feature some wonderful brads and ribbon.

I picked this plain kraft bag up from the dollar store and prettied it up with some adorable Pebbles paper, cupcake brads, pink pearl brads, and cupcake ribbon.  While I was at it, I made a matching card and envelope.  I love giving gifts in sets like this.

This thank-you card is made from Momenta cardstock and embellished with a dress form brad, thread brads, and sewing ribbon.

I couldn't resist using the strawberry brads and fruit ribbon to make a "you're sweet" card.  The paper is an older line from October Afternoon that I've been hoarding.

Eyelet Outlet has an enormous selection of themed, pearl, and jewel brads.  Don't let the name fool you... they have just as many, if not more, brads as they have eyelets.  I had a little peek today at some of the new stuff that will be coming out soon... some major cuteness there!

More Momenta Thank You Cards

Hi!  I have another pair of thank-you cards up on the Momenta blog this week.  Allison gave these to her preschool teachers along with their gifts for teacher appreciation week.  She's been attending for 2 hours a week... in the Fall she'll move up to 4 hours... eek!

Once again, I have used Momenta's wonderful 5x7 cardstock pads.

Some of my favorite Momenta products are the vellum stickers.
There are sooooo many styles to chose from,
and they make it super easy to add a sentiment to a card.

I'm also a fan of the clear layered stickers.
I appreciate that they come pre-assembled and ready to use!

The second card uses the same design as the first.
I often make cards in sets of 2's...
it's an efficient way to build your card stash.

I recently came across this card sketch site and loved the inspiration there!

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all the moms out there a very happy mother's day!
My daughter('s daddy) sent me chocolate-dipped strawberries!

This gorgeous Teresa Collins paper is some of my favorite.

I used three beautiful brads from Eyelet Outlet for flower centers.
I love those jewels and pearls!

The flowers are stamped and cut-out images,
and the sentiment is computer-printed.

The patterned cardstock, stickers, and jewels on this card are Momenta.

If you're a card-maker, I really encourage you to check out
Momenta's 5x7 cardstock pads... perfect for cards.

Momenta is sponsoring Card Positioning Systems this month,
so several of my team members and I used their sketch 264
as inspiration for our projects this week.

Have a wonderful day!
