Happy Birthday Joshua

 Love this Brontosaurus pop up card from My Scrap Chic. I made it for my Grandsons 4th birthday.  This is a different kind of Pop up card, there was a learning curve, but I made it through it with the help of the great video they provided.

Thanks for looking, stay safe.

Treasure Chest Box card


Hi All, I didn't share this box card I made for Christmas for my granddaughters class yet.  It's the Treasure Chest box card from My Scrap Chic, I made it smaller so it could be used and saved as a Christmas tree ornament.  I left off the sequins so the kids could decorate it themselves.  Its a really cute file.

The evolution of a tealight

 Hi All, I'm back again with a project I've been working on.  It started out with a perfectly beautiful

4th of July Tealight holder from Simply Crafty  that originally looked like this.

Because I wanted to make it for my granddaughters end of year gift from the teachers to the students I tried to change it to her school colors of orange and blue.
Then we decided the rockets did not fit the occasion.  So I pillaged the beautiful file and saved all the beautiful well designed parts and inserted some school  mascot pieces in their place.  This is what I came up with.
I'm really happy with how they came out, I think they will be too.  I'm grateful for the file from Simply Crafty that made it possible.  
Stay safe, thanks for looking.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter, I  finally finished moving and re organizing the contents of my craft room  Its so much nicer now, I have the things I use most frequently within easy reach. I made this cute Easter card for my grandkids and a few of my friends who are kids at heart, lol.  The SVG file is from Dreaming Tree, (I think I bought it last year!)  I really need to catch up on making some of the cards I have files for.  Its part of the Easter Time SVG bundle, I think I bought it to make the hat for the grandkids, but as I cant visit, I mailed these cards instead.  Hope you enjoy this, I'll be back soon with more. 

In the meantime, stay safe, ~Diane

Retirement box card


I made this card a while back for a friend of mine  I love making box cards that fold flat for mailing but have some dimension to them too.  Hope you all are staying warm.  ~Diane

Dragon Castle box card


What a fun card to make, this Dragon Castle box card is from Simply Crafty, I loved the model so much I had to make an embossing folder to mimic the stone look like they did.  I positioned the dragons claws to hold the drawbridge closed, love how it turned out.  ~Diane

Cute Owl card


This cute owl card by My Scrap Chic was fun to make.  I made a set of them for my daughter to give to her team mates, she had told me how much she appreciated them and although Covid has brought a lot of stress to teachers, her team mates were her glimmer of light in the darkness.  This is not the owl that comes with the card, I bought another set of 3 owls at My Scrap Chic, but I can't find you the link, they were called "night owls" because they had a little more personality and the little bird is an embellishment I added.  All the papers were from Paper and More, including the woodgrain embossed card stock.  Well, that's all for today  Thanks for looking.  Diane

Tractor Challenge

I love this 
Tractor box card from SVG Cuts, it was a bit of a challenge for me to assemble, but my husband pitched in and showed me how.  Mary has excellent videos to show the assembly, but I'm a little bit dyslexic so I find assembly sometimes a challenge.  This card was worth it though, as it really has a great WoW factor when its done.  It folds completely flat to fit n the envelope for mailing.  I hope you enjoy.  ~Diane

Here comes Febuary 2021

 I thought it would be fun to share this wall hanging, its 8.5" x 11".  I made this for my son and his wife, the picture is of their little dog Sophie.  I put this together in my Craft Artist software (another great tool that has joined me in the extinct dinosaur age), haha.  I saw the saying in a cute little gift shop in New York when we visited them there.  Stay warm if you can.  ~Diane

Basic Box card personalized

These are more cards from the Basic box card, SVG Cuts.   I just add different elements to personalize it for who it's for.  This was a group get well for someone who had retired from Ford Motor co, we all saw him at Taco Bell.

This last card is another variation of the very same box card above, I personalized it for my friends daughter in law who worked at DMC as an Ultrasound technician and loves her white cat.

Favorite castle card

Hope you are all managing the solitude that Covid has brought upon us.  It's taken me some time, but I have my creative juices flowing again.  

This is one of my favorites, sorry, it was by a designer with Thyme Graphics, no longer available, or at least I can't find them any more.  If anyone knows that they changed the name, please let me know.

Hi, back again with more shares.  Sorry for the lack of writing, I love making cards, but I'm not a writer.

This sweet little castle card is part of a set called Box cards by SVG Cuts I love how the box cards fold flat for mailing.

The Graduates

The Graduates.  My friends had kids and grand kids graduating in 2020, sadly there was not much hoopla for our 2020 grads, I made these so they could celebrate and really mark the occasion.  I used the basic box card SVG from SVG Cuts, did some photo editing in Craft Artist program.
