My Kanban Projects!

This week I created two cards to share for my Kanban Crafts projects!  First up is this stunning zebra print!  I love the image that goes with this pattern paper!  The image has so many little details, including embossing and metal accents!  I added in gold pearls using my Viva gold pen!
Next is the lace butterflies from the Victoriana line! 
Aren't they beautiful!?  The lace papers are from the Victoriana Ribbons paper!  I used my MS scoreboard to add lines to the card, but they didn't photograph well.
Have you checked out the Kanban Crafts FB page?  So many wonderful projects!
I will be hosting a giveaway in September featuring Kanban during the Disney/Pixar Blog Hop, be sure to keep checking back!

Jillibean Tease!

I have been busy creating for my Guest Designer spot at Jillibean Soup and I can't wait to share with you my projects...so today I bring you my Jillibean tease -
 See that middle photo on the top line?  If you follow my Facebook page, this is the project that I got so giddy over the other night and fell in love with!  Ohhh, I just can't wait to share more of it with you! 

Stay tuned for more...

Kid Crafts!

We have been creating and playing with lots of crafts this summer!  The kids keep finding all kinds of ideas and patterns online (what did we do without the internet!?)!  This is their first hand sewing project... :)

And their first basket weaving project...

Aren't they fun!?
We have had some flops and some GREAT BIG messes (which just adds to "their" fun!) but I thought that these projects turned out great!

Happy Birthday Box and Card!


I love making boxes and bags!  It has been a while since I sat down to create one from scratch...I find myself pulling out my Cricut or past templates way to much these days! :)  This is just a simple box with a handle, but the Kanban My Fair Lady sure makes it snazzy!  I love the layers and the elegance she provides!

Just for you...

Today I am working with papers and embellishements from the Bella collection by Kanban Crafts!  I love the metallic edges and details - the photos just do not do it enough justice, and I tried all kinds of angles!  :)  The line is really stunning!

Happy 40

I was thrilled when I met this new Pyramid Pad from Momenta the first time!  It is technically a travel paper pad, but I knew from the moment I held it that it was my new "go to guy pad"!  There are great colors and patterns, so even if you aren't a traveler, you will still want this one!

I used the smaller paper cuts from this pad to create my hubby's 40th birthday card!  The little glittered arrow and gems are from the Travel Sticker Kit and the "happy" is from the Life of the Party stickers.  I used naked chipboard numbers and covered them in the Momenta paper!



Fun, right!?  I am marking this as a must have pad...now hurry, go get yours!  :)

HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY RON!

Thank You

I love the quality of the Kanban paper, it is such a great weight for cards and the details in each and every page just amaze me.  Just look at this chocolate color with the gold accents, simple stunning in my book!  I tried to keep my embellishments at a minimum because I just love the look of this paper so much!  A little butterfly (punched using a MS punch), a touch of ribbon, some Liquid Pearls, and a gold strip for the bottom edge...sigh, yep I love it!
