Cardmaking Bliss...

Hi there! So, the kids are back to school. Week two. Things are falling into place. Everyone likes their classes and teachers. Yay for the peace that routine brings!

As for me, I’ve had some good (late night) crafting sessions. A few weeks ago, I picked up a few My Minds Eye 6x6 pads (Lost & Found & Lost & Found 2) along with the cute stamps, pretty brads, and the cool burlap. I was so inspired by that collection and thought it would be PERFECT with Lawn Fawn’s Just My Type and Sew Lovely stamps! I was right ;). I ended up with a few vintage (and fun) looking cards. Here’s a look at a few of them:
So, this one (up top) was actually based on this MojoMonday sketch from back in July. I liked the sketch so much but missed the deadline :( so i bookmarked it and felt inspired to use it with thses goodies. Happy I did - fun sketch!!

I really loved playing with the burlap!!! Fabritac glued it down like a champ. I actually made a set of 4 - but I’ll share the other 3 another day... sneaky huh?!?

Well, I hope your day is good to you.


  1. Very nice, these papers are perfect for the typewriter and sewing machine! those brads and burlap look super fun too! Thanks for sharing your lovely creations, I look forward to seeing the rest of them.

  2. These cards are the perfect vintage cards! Love the colors and the stamps.

  3. Glad you got some scrappy time! The materials are just so cool! Love that burlap and the brads are gorgeous! Fab cards!!

  4. You sure have a way with patterned paper! Love these. My favorite is the burlap one! Adds amazing texture to your fabulous card!
