Calendar Headings

I am in the process of creating calendar headings for a yearly calendar.  I color the headings on my iPad using the app ReColor (type in recolor in your app store and it will come up with the download link.)

Here is April ... I have January, February and March finished but have to locate the file on my flashdrive.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, which is going to be nice spring day in February in Alabama.  Blessings to you all.

A Shelf Card with a Valentine's Day theme

Heart Shelf Card

This is a pretty card cut file, but putting it together  was time consuming for me.  All the bending and twisting to get the pieces in to the slits was somewhat difficult.  So, all in all, I probably will not make this card very often.  

This was included in the Creative Kuts Card Train for February.  I actually cut this out 3 to 4 times because of the sizing.  Once I got the size I wanted, it's a great looking card.  I used stickers for embellishments that I purchased at the local Hobby Lobby.  Stamped sentiment from Stampin' Up catalog; and paper/cardstock from my stash of paper pads.

Thank you for taking time to visit with me, and blessings to all.

Another Swing Card - with a Heart/s

Heart Swing Card .  I stamped 'wishing you a' sentiment  on the white Heart layered on the red heard.  Placed a heart sticker and three gem stones below the sentiment.  And stamped the Happy Valentine's Day Sentiment in the corner of card.  I used my chomper, the 'cloud' design and cut each corner.  
 This is the front view of the Heart Swing card, showing the layered heart with a sticker applied to the center of the white Heart
This is the same card standing with the inside of the swing heart facing out to see better.  Another sticker applied just above the Happy Valentine's Day' Sentiment.

Red texture/linen type card purchased either from Tuesday Mornings or from Country Craft Creations.  The design card stock is from a 12x12 paper pad by First Edition and purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me this evening, and hope you all have a blessed week.

2-Sisters Coloring Project

I named this photo 2-Sisters.  A outline image I downloaded from Pinterest and using the Recolor app on my ipad, I colored it and than using the pencil effect within the app, it created this effect.  Than I saved to Instagram and than saved to my ipad and downloaded to my PC.  From there I loaded in Adobe Photoshop Elements where I created a frame and corrected some areas with the the 'bandaide' tool.

I plan to use this in as a birthday card sometime in the future.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and have a great day of crafting.

Un-named Mini-album

A mini-album I am creating - mostly finished except for photo mats to insert into the top pockets; and to include some rectangle and triangle pockets within the book.  And to find a clasp/hook for a closure.

This is one of several mini-albums I am making from watching and groups on Facebook.

Thank you for coming by to visit with me, and God Bless you all.  Have a great crafty week.

FEBRUARY-add a HEART and use RED or PINK

Hello all from my little home in Alabama where it's warm - and this Northerner would love, love some cold weather with MORE snow!!  I know, crazy right.  So tomorrow's posting for Christmas Card All Year Around includes both red and pink colors and a heart.

I found this card technique A2 X Cards on and thought I would try it.  Here are the results...

side view of the card showing the x shape with a heart hanging from the circle.

Here is the front view of the card.

Most of the files I used for this card is  or from my Silhouette Designer Edition library.  

Paper is from my stash of cardstock and 12x12 paper pads.  

Thank you for stopping by to visit with us at Christmas Cards All Year Around and take a few minutes to look at the design team members work. 

Have a blessed day, and God bless you all.
