Baptism Card

A Baby Boy is being baptized in the family and was asked to make a card for him. Here is the card!
Paper and “God” letters by My Minds Eye, Slice Machine made the words “Bless” and “Austin”, Ribbon and buttons from my stash. Inside I made a cute little pocket with faux stitching for a monetary gift. Hope you like ❤

Destressed & Damask Cards

Hey Guys! As promised before sunday I made a card and am posting it. But I have bad news. I do not have my digital SLR camera anymore 😦 so I have to take pictures with my camera phone- UGH! Hopefully I can get a new camera and the photos of my projects will be better. So I apologize if this card doesnt look as good as it does in person (he he).

For the Flower Destressed Damask card I used My Minds Eye Best of Damask paper pack, Craft paper by Stampin Up, The flower and button from my stash (walmart I believe). This is the first card ive made with a destressed look and I love it!!!

This second card is a Thank You Card for Lauren who bought me all the cute damask paper and other papers (you will definitely see in the near future). The letters are by My Minds Eye (Hip & Luxurious Basics- Lush collection), Brad is from Basic Grey’s Green at Heart Collection. Designs influenced by the super creative Kristina Werner.


Hope you like!

Hi guys! Sorry I’ve Disappeared!

Hey guys!

Sorry I haven’t posted in forever!
I have officially moved from College in Sault Ste. Marie to my parents home in the Greater Toronto Area. I will be starting a new chapter of my life- young ADULTHOOD! AHHHH! I will be getting a job soon, meeting up with old friends, and hopefully crafting a lot more with a bigger budget 😉 being a student really did suck because of the lack of funds!

So I will be refreshing my blog with a new design and posting some creations hopefully by the end of the week (Sunday). I have just finished organizing my new crafting space and i love it. I just need to find a better storage solution for all my stuff but It’ll do for now.

Thanks for checking in at my blog (ive noticed the traffic and i haven’t been giving you guys anything new to read!)

Happy Crafting ❤
Ashley
