Momenta Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

Meet today’s card:

It’s a Momenta birthday card – card base, papers, round sentiment sticker and frame – all from Momenta. It’s a one-stop shop. My ribbon is some leftover from my craft supplies (I think it may be from Offray but I could be wrong) and my embossed label sentiment is created my Dymo label maker.

p/s: how do you like my recent changes in photography? I’ve finally dug out the DSLR camera and learning how to use it properly – believe it or not, I could get it to photograph better than my point and shoot!! clearly user error!


Our Creative Corner Challenge

Hello all,

I was completely taken by surprise and totally flattered when Tui Nathan from Our Creative Corner contacted me and asked if I would like to guest design for them. Of course I said yes – I had been playing in their challenges for a while and love the work of their design team. They also have a few new team members in place since January this year.

Well, this week’s challenge is black and white with a splash of color! Mine is a big splash of red …

Most of the supplies on the card is from Momenta – since my DT box just came from them and it’s conveniently sitting next to my craft table waiting to be used or put away. Only the white pearl-centered flower is from Offray. The doily die is from Papertrey Ink.

Everyone is welcome to play along. If you upload your card/project to SCS, please use the keyword OCCC. We do require that your project be a new project and not back-linked to a project made before this challenge started. Please be sure you link back to the OCC blog post in order to be eligible for our Top Talent award.  This challenge closes at 11:59 p.m.Eastern Time on March 2nd.

Have fun!


Cardabilities Reveal for Febuary 15

Welcome to another Cardabilities reveal.

I hope you all had a fun and romantic Valentine’s Day. And if you didn’t, I always tell myself – it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

And with all the love talk, here is the sketch for this reveal:

And here is my take:


I love that sentiment from Stampendous! So sweet and to the point. The border is a die from Spellbinders. Ribbon is from Offray and paper is from My Mind’s Eye.

I hope you find yourself inspired to play along too.
