Hello on this beautiful day! I had several people who have asked how can I get started without spending a ton of money. I took a good look of what I know I will need every time I get started with a project. As you will see in the video that I put together there is two packages. What I included will help you to start building your supplies and then you can add as you go. I’m really looking forward to your thoughts and definitely crafting with you.
The $50 kit I put together is approximately a $75 value package which includes:
Archival Black Ink Pad
1 additional ink pad of your choice
1 Clear Block D
1 package of Dimensionals
1 Package of Whisper White envelopes
1 Package of Thick Whisper White Cardstock
1 package of multi-color pack of Cardstock of your choice
and a gift of 1 spool of ribbon (varies)

With either of these packages you will be on your way!
Hi everyone!! What a wonderful day it has been, I thought about getting home from work today just to upload my new video. Every time I think I got this video process down I learn something new which is awesome, just means eventually I might be a pro lol. So I did a video of a project I shared at my open house yesterday which was great fun, we did three projects and tonight I’m sharing how to do a simple pedestal card. After I made it I thought of lots of things you can actually do with it, for example instead of a mini-calendar what about a cute pictures of your kids, spouse, pets? Or how about making a little pocket on it to add affirmations, quotes or something to remind you of how great you are? Don’t forget you can get Heartfelt Blooms free with any $50 purchase!!
Here is the video to make it, but I challenge you to try something new and share it with me. My juices just started flowing. This week-end I had a drawing for those who attended my Open House, well how about this at the end of this week I will give away the same set I gave away yesterday? Post a project on my facebook page at this link https://www.facebook.com/craftydreamsdotcom/ or comment on this page. I will pick a Random name next monday giving everyone at least a week!
Ok so to make the Calendar pedestal you need the following:
4.25” x 11” long I used Melon Mambo scoring at 5.5”
4” x 4” of Melon Mambo scoring at .5”, 2” and 3.5”
4” x 5.25 of Whisper White Cardstock
Melon Mambo Ink
Clear faceted gems
and your choice of what you are matting, I did a calendar with Lime Twist but I recommend stay with the same color you made the pedestal with. Please follow along on the tutorial and while you are there please subscribe to get my latest videos!
Yesterday I received my “Calypso Coral” boxes in the mail. I have been waiting all week for them. I absolutely love getting Paper Pumpkin, it’s so much fun to be surprised each month with a new project. The best part it comes with everything you need right there is the beautiful little package. This month it was for Valentines but with a different spin on the colors. Absolutely adorable!!
Take a look at the project I worked on this morning.
Just a quick reminder that for any order over $50 you are eligible to pick a product from the Sale-a-Bration catalog! Take a look inside the Sale A Bration catalog by clicking the picture below.
Hi everyone, as most of you are aware I was down with a yuck flu for the past week! But yesterday I forced myself up and took a long hot shower so that I could make myself feel better. It definitely worked. I missed chatting with everyone, but I sure appreciate the messages and prayers that I received they absolutely were a blessing!
Yesterday I decided to work on my favorite bundle and that is the Petal Palette with the Petal Passion Designer Paper. Omigosh I love all of the black and white, it’s classic, however add that pop of color and it’s so much more. I even played with my Stampin’ Up Blends! If you have not got those, it’s a must. You can start small and purchase 1 set at a time or buy the whole kit at once. I promise you will not regret it!
I did a video that really takes much longer than what the card actually takes, but gives you a couple of ideas to try!
I hope you enjoyed the video and I know you can tell I’m still got a cold going on but definitely getting better!
