"Thank You" card - JJ Sobey

Hi Everyone! JJ here again. Since many of us have thank you notes to send after Christmas, I thought I would show a quick thank you card.

Just a few stripes of fabric tape, and a little embellishment and sentiment, and you're ready to write your note.

Thanks for visiting!

Snow Angel

The countdown to Christmas has began...only 6 more days!  Normally we have a very white Christmas here, but this year there's not much snow around, lots has melted with the higher than normal temps.  I do hope we get a little sprinkle on Christmas Eve, just won't seem the same without it.

Today I have a layout to share with you, this is a picture I took of my daughter last winter.

I know that pink is not usually used for winter pages, but I thought it offset the blue in her coat nicely.

The hot pink Fabric Sheet has the texture of suede, I love fell of this stuff!  I also used a little light pink Lace Tape and Taffy Fabric Tape for a bit more color on this basically neutral layout.

This is my last post until the new year, I hope you all enjoy the holidays and have a happy New Year!

Joy to the World

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a Christmas card with you. Can you believe how close it is to Christmas? I can't believe how fast this snuck up on me! There's still time to make a few cards though!

Here's my card. I used some thin white Lace Tape and some Red Stripe Fabric Tape as well. These tapes add a fabulous texture and dimension to your project without adding a lot of bulk. These are great embellishments for mailing, they are very light weight. The papers are from Authentique and the little bling is from Recollections.
Have a great day, everyone!

Smallish things...

Oh I love that quote form Winnie the Pooh.
                                                           Here are some smallish things,
tiny containers made to hold small surprises!
Perhaps a fancy chocolate at your Christmas dinner table?

Using Love my Tapes lace tape and flowers on top this
makes it quick and easy to make a gift box!
Maybe a gift for a teacher, neighbor or friend that stopped by?
Can you imagine opening your door to find a sweet
little package on your doorstep?
Happy Crafting!

"Get Your Art On" layout

Hi Everyone - JJ here again, with another layout. :)

I had fun combining some great fabric sheets and tapes on this page, mixing girly with boyish. Here you can see the brown dot fabric (which I die cut into a tag shape) and the pink reptile fabric. It didn't need the stitching to hold it, but I have a hard time resisting using the sewing machine when fabric is involved.

The white newsprint fabric works on so many projects. I added a little pop of green with the Sherbert mini check fabric tape.

In this picture you can see some of the 15mm beige lace tape and the Brooke Wildflowers fabric tape - so each to create little borders!

I had a few diecut shapes leftover in the brown dot fabric, so I added them on in the corners!

Thanks for visiting!

Just a Note(book)

Hi friends, it's Ashley here to share an altered notebook with you. Altered notebooks are great to give as gifts or part of a gift. You can make any size and customize them for the person you are going to give it to. I used the Love My Tapes Lace Tape in Beige. The lace tapes are a perfect embellishment from notebooks because they are flat and adhered all the way down so they will not catch things when you place your notebook in a purse or a backpack.
Have a great day, friends!

Thanks so much

Hello my friends! Giovana here with a "Thank you" card for you. Probably you are all done with your Christmas cards and need something different.
For my card I used Red/White Polka Dot Fabric Sheet, cut a piece form the sheet, adhered it to a piece of thin cardstock and then die-cut small squares, this way your piece will cut smoothly and it won't stick on your cutting machine. I mat the squares with a embossed fleur de lis piece and adhered it to card. After that I added a strip of  White Lace Tape. After that I added the image and stamp the sentiment.

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!!

Holiday Greetings

Every year I tell myself to start my Christmas cards early, but I never do and this year is no different.  Now that we're in December I decided I better get cracking and make a few...good thing I don't have a big mailing list.

Here are a couple of simple easy cards I made.

On this first card I used the Emily Fabric Tape and some Beige Lace Tape.

For this one I used the red & white polka dot Fabric Sheet as the background with a strip of White Lace Tape at the bottom.  This card was so quick but I love the texture of it!

If you're like me and need to get a few cards done quick I hope these will inspire you!
