Monday Montage Week #133


Hello and welcome! We are so happy to have you with us for our Monday Montage Blog Hop! I still haven't shared all of my Valentine cards with you, so please bear with me while a share another one, even though Valentine's Day is over!



I made this card for my oldest daughter. She is moving to Australia in a couple of months to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  The Animal Outing was perfect for her card because of the little kangaroo and koala! I actually cut it out of the Animal Expedition DSP with the Animal Friends Framelits-I love it when the DSP is sized so that the images can be cut out with the framelits!!

And I almost gave up and didn't make her card. I was running out of time and I thought for half a minute that maybe I would just give her the gift without the card...but...it is my tradition to give my kids and husband handmade cards for Valentine's Day, so I did it. And I finished the cards just in the nick of time! I am so glad I did! This is the post that my daughter put on her instagram:




Yay! It made my day!!

Monday Montage Week #132


Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! We are so excited to have some new people joining our hop!! Please welcome Cheryl Curtis and Charlot Mallett! I know you'll love their fabulous projects!
Now it's officially February, and I am in full Valentine mode! I have decorated my house and made another Valentine card to share with you! Have a look!



I Love this card! I love the elegance the die cut flowers give this card, and it's easy to do with the Forever Lovely stamp set and the coordinating Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies! Using the Stamparatus makes lining everything up a breeze! Here's some close-ups of the detail that you can get with these coordinating products!




And for this card I used a little different layout! The base card and the first layer are flat, and then I did a trifold layer of whisper white on top that opens up. Here's a photo of the inside of my card! Plenty of room to write a love note!

Monday Montage Week #131


Hooray!! It's Monday Montage!! We're so glad your here hopping along with us! And I'm excited to share another Valentine card wth you! This time it's a masculine card that I made for my husband...shhhh, don't tell!



This card came together quickly! I used the typewriter from the P.S. You're the Best stamp set for the focal point with the die cut hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits and sponged over the hearts with a little Crumb Cake Ink. Then I layered it on top of the Wood Textures DSP. And Voila!! My  hubby's card is ready to go!

Monday Montage Week #128


Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog hop! It's official! The Christmas season has begun! Today I am sharing the very first Christmas card I have made this year!



I am absolutely loving the Buffalo Check background stamp in the Occasions Catalog! And pairing it with one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets of all time, Christmas Pines, makes me love it even more! It's a match made in Yuletide heaven! I added a few sprigs punched with the Sprig punch for good measure!

Door Hanger Tutorial

Good morning!
Today I'm posting the door hanger tutorial that was featured in yesterday's Monday Montage post. It's really easy to make, and can be used for any occasion! The perfect way to leave a treat on the door of a family member, friend or co-worker!


Step 1

First cut one piece of cardstock to 7-12" by 3" and set aside. Cut a second piece to 6-1/2" to 3-3/4" as shown in step 1.

Step 2

Score the second piece of cardstock at 1/2", 1-1/2", 4-1/2" and 5-1/2" as shown in step 2.


Step 3

Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 1/2" and 1-1/2" as shown in step 3.


Step 4

Next, fold on all score lines and crease each fold with the Bone Folder. Cut out the bottom left and the bottom right corners where the score lines intersect as shown in Step 4.

Step 5

Notch all of the edges as shown in Step 5.

Step 6

Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to all the edges as shown in step 6.


Step 7

Adhere the piece prepared in steps 2-5 to the bottom of the first piece of cardstock reserved in Step 1. Round the top two corners using the Detailed Trio Punch as shown in Step 7. 

Step 8

Cut out a circle using the 2-1/8" circle framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits and decorate as desired as shown in step 8.
