You Make my Heart Flutter

Hi! It’s me, Tonya!!! I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine’s Day. Mine was spent in a very cold house with no electricity because of a snow storm that came through the day before. I have determined that I would have never made it as a pioneer because I don’t do roughing it very well. I was so happy that it finally came back on Saturday…three days is way too long!!! The hubby and I wound up going out to eat on Saturday and to see Steep Canyon Rangers perform for our Valentine’s Day presents to each other.
Well, this is the card I created for the February Valentine’s Day challenge. The card is made out of a 3.5″x6.75″ mini paperbag. I folded the top half of the bag underneath the bottom “flap” and then I cut slightly smaller than the bag scrapbook paper to cover all surfaces.
Next I use the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies and the Hearts and Brackets dies to cut out two butterflies and a small hearts. Also I used two dress pins for the butterflies antenna. 

You can add candy, gift card or some other fun treat to the little bag card.

The sentiment I used the computer to print it off.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!


Snowflake Paperbag Card

Hi everyone!!! It’s me Tonya!!! Can you believe it is only a week and a day and it will be Christmas!?!!?!? Are you ready??? Me? I finished my shopping today so all I need to do is wrap presents and if possible knock out a few handmade projects for some extra special people on my list.
Well, I’m here to share a card I created using a mini paperbag. All you have to do is fold the end of the bag to were it fits under the flat of the “bottom” of the bag. Next cut cardstock to fit each fold/flap of your card. I inked all edges of the cardstock before adhering to the card.

I used my Cuttlebug snowflake diecut and cut one snowflake from velum and the other one from cardstock which all the cardstock and chipboard snowflake is from the Winter Collection(Russia) from the Robin’s Nest and the Deco Snowflake sticker are from Ecstasy Crafts.

Now if you want to you can add a sweet little goodie inside the bag. Won’t that be a sweet surprise???

Gratitude Card

Hi everyone! I’m here to share my design team card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery Blog. This month’s challenge is Thanksgiving/thank you theme. Well, I created a gratitude card. Gratitude means a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation. I’m thankful for my family, a loving husband, family, friends, talent to create and I’m most thankful for a God that has given me ALL of that and so must more.

I used Trees of Gratitude rubber stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. I love how the card turned out but with rainy weather and the photos I took the coloring of the card just did not turn out the way it looks in person.

The card measures 4 1/2″x8″ and I used kraft cardstock for the base and then I used a variety of scrapbook paper, paper leaves, button, Dew Drop and Color Box Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk ink.

If you have any questions let me know, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

Spooky Cute Pumpkins

Hi everyone!!! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share two cards I created for our monthly challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for this month is pumpkins and this is the cards I came up with.
Both cards bases are cut from a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock and then folded into a 3″x6″ base for each card. The first is card is very easy to make. I used scraps of cardstock, buttons, Dew Drop, Ric Rac, and I used one of those $1 stamps that you can get at Michaels and stamped jack-o-lantern on a scrap of orange cardstock. Pretty simple huh? 🙂

The next card I used Damask Black and White cardstock for the base of my card which I inked all edges of with Martha Stewart Stem Green Chalk Ink. I also used scraps of cardstock, buttons, Dew Drops, a doily that I glimmer misted with Tattered Angels Peach Delight and the 31 is cut from Sizzix Funky Brush dies. The vintage pumpkin image (I cut the image down) I got from Ephemera’s Vintage Garden. There are five more Halloween images that are perfect for cards too. 

If you have any questions about either card please let me know. 
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your Friday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
