Card Creations 8 blog hop

Welcome to the top ten Card Creation 8 Blog Hop!
As soon as this issue hit the book shelves, I went to my nearest book store and bought a copy.  I bought a copy, knowing one would be arriving in the mail soon.  I could not wait for my mail, this baby needed to be mine.  Why you ask?  This is a special issue, the Card Creations 8 special issue.  This issue is divided up into sections, such as, Get Well, Thank You, Mother's Day, Christmas, Baby, Graduation, and Friendship, just to name a few (there are more).  All of your bases are covered, and it is all cards...all cards people!  273 cards to be exact.  Do you know my very first published card was just last year when Card Creations 7 came out?  I think I only submitted one, and they picked it up.  When that acceptance letter arrived in my inbox, I couldn't believe it.  So, a year later, to be in the Top Ten blog hop is very, very surreal.   To order your own copy of CC8, click here.

Make sure you visit each of these blogs, leave a comment, for your chance to win a most fabulous prize!!
Comments will close Midnight on May 30th.
The winner will be announced on the Moxie Fab blog on June 1st.


























  • Now, lets talk about the Dear Lizzy line by American Crafts.
    It is girly.  It has a fantastic color scheme.  Is so very inventive, especially with the self adhesive fabric sheets and don't even get me started on all of the embellishments!  The Thickers, felt stickers, the flair buttons, trims, rubons, and stickers.  Did I mention Thickers?  Glittery Thickers?  They make glittery thickers!!  I digress, I got a little excited there for a second.  What I mean to say through all my mumbo jumbo, is that this line was well thought out, well executed, makes me smile and was oh so fun to play with!  The Dear Lizzy line was co-created by American Crafts and the talented Elizabeth Kartchner.  Her inspiration for this line, came from an outdoor tea party.

    Making your own embellishment is extremely popular right now.  So, using some of the fabric sheets, a few stickers and a flair button, I made some fun flower embellishments.  Do you see what is says on the flair button?  It says, "Thinking of you makes me smile." How cute is that!  




  • Materials used:
    American Crafts white & grey textured card stock
    Dear Lizzy Snapdragon Soiree fabric finish paper
    Dear Lizzy Tickled Tulip Fabric Finish
    Dear Lizzy Smiley Flair adhesive sticker
    Dear Lizzy Remarks sticker
    Dear Lizzy Clover Bliss Glitter Thickers
    Spellbinders S4-114 Standard Circles Large

    For this card, I really didn't have too much of a plan.
    I was drawn to the different heart embellishments, and wanted to make a lovey dovey card.  Plus, I was trying to figure out how to use the white glittery thickers, and really make them pop on a card.  I think using the kraft card stock, along with the darker pattern paper & embellishments helped that happen.  Even though, I think that super cute heart felty may have stolen the show on this card.
    Materials used:
    Kraft card stock
    Dear Lizzy White Bliss Glittery Thickers
    Dear Lizzy Coffee Bliss Mixed Accent Thickers
    Dear Lizzy Humble Honeybee pattern paper
    Dear Lizzy Swallowtail Social pattern paper
    corner rounder
    yellow sakura glaze pen


    I love a nice card made on white card stock.
    They look so clean, and everything just pops.
    For this card, I cut strips of some of the pattern paper, and created a rainbow/gradient of sorts. The framed sticker is so cool, and I wanted to try an emulate it a little bit.  If you have a lot of scraps hanging around, this is the perfect kind of card to make, it give you the ability to use them up.  

    Materials Used:
    American Crafts white textured card stock
    American Crafts foam adhesive
    Dear Lizzy Feather Dimensional Phrases
    Dear Lizzy Sweet Strawberry pattern paper
    Dear Lizzy Humble Honeybee pattern paper
    Dear Lizzy Friendly Fern pattern paper
    Dear Lizzy Golden Gleam pattern paper
    Dear Lizzy Swallowtail Social pattern paper
    Memento Rich Cocoa ink
    Waltzingmouse Stamps


    I will stop at three cards, although, I made a lot more than that :)
    Have a fun blog hop.
    Thank You for stopping by today!!

    Lynne Phelps said...

    Lovely cards! I have been a subscriber to your blog for a couple years, but lately I am having a really hard time with the photography. If the cards were just angle a bit more towards the light source perhaps, as the face of the cards are often in shadow. It is difficult to read in dark or light areas with low contrast - for instance the button on the first card and the sentiment block on the last card. Granted, I am on a laptop with an LCD screen, but no matter how I adjust I can't get all the details. I adore your blog and you are so talented but I want a better view of the lovely cards!! :-)

    craftymom205 said...

    Great cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

    miriam daniels said...

    Is that a button. Love the flowers, the colors, the shape. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!
