I just realized that I forgot to share with you the last set of personalized cards I made for holiday gifts!

This particular set went to my aunt and I did my signature ribbon and jute bows, however, the stamp is really what makes this card. It's SO detailed and perfect for the wine and cheese lover in your life. She loved them. :)

I've been super busy lately working on some great invitations and card sets to put up on my etsy store so when i'm all finished you'll be the first to know!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and spending some much needed time relaxing and with family!

I had an absolutely wonderful Christmas and I can't wait to send out these thank you cards to show my gratitude for all the amazing people in my life.

If you're in need of some thank you cards as well, just let me know and i would be more than happy to make you some! I can do any paper, color scheme, ribbon color, ect. that you would like!

They're 5" x 3" so they're the perfect size to express your appreciation for all the great gifts, meals, love and attention you received this weekend. And before and after as well :)

I have another present for you to unwrap!

This card is one of my favorites! I made a pack of them for one of my mom's friends for Christmas. I love the contrast between the purple, black and gold.

I told you this flower stamp was one of my favorites :) I can use it for so many different cards (and I do!) and I think it works perfectly for so many themes. I promise this isn't the last time you will see it.

Happy Holidays and more to come!

Christmas is just around the corner and that means I can continue showing you the personalized card packs I made for some very special people! :)

It's hard to see the detail in this card on the computer, but there are so many great layers to it. I started off with a sparkly black paper and topped it with red patterned scrapbook paper, ribbon and finally an embossed cherry blossom stamp. Phew!

I can't wait to show you the other personalized cards I've made as they receive them. It's like we're all getting presents!

Check out this invitation I made!
I really had no particular person or event in mind when I made it, but it would be perfect for a bachelorette party or girls night out/weekend.

The martini stamp is embossed so it sits pretty off the paper and matches the bow perfectly :)

I'm going to play with some other papers and stamps and make some more invitations with this design because it's really simple but so cute and personal.

Check back soon for others!

I'm so excited to show you a set of cards I made for my aunt for Christmas!

I made a couple of special card packs for people for the holidays but my aunt was lucky enough to open her present early so I can share it with you now!

When I think of cowgirl, she comes to mind so I found this boot stamp specifically for her. I spiced up her cards with some sparkly gold paper to even out the rustic feel of the jute ribbon and gingham bow and finally embossed her initials in the corner to really make these one-of-a-kind.

I can't wait to share with you the other personalized cards! Only 11 more days...

I was looking through old pictures the other day and I got this great idea for a birthday invitation!

I wanted to make something that was super personal so I thought how great it would be to make an invitation that parents can attach their own picture to.

I just used a double sided picture sticker to attach this picture (of yours truly when I was a baby) and that way the lucky recipients can easily peel the picture off the invitation to keep!

More invitation ideas to come!

My boss recently celebrated 10 years at our company and my co-worker and I gave her this congratulatory card to celebrate her accomplishment!

Does the flower look familiar? ;) I used it for my friend's engagement party thank you cards but it's so versatile it's perfect for anything.

I also think the "oh happy day" phrase goes a long way and can be used for multiple occasions.

Wishing you a happy day!

I decided to go "back to basics" this weekend and work on some fun new birthday cards! I've been thank you card obsessed lately and I needed some bedazzles and birthday cake in my life :)

I found some great birthday themed stamps on sale so I had a blast trying those out with different embossing powders and paper.

The picture doesn't do this card justice because the colors are so vibrant. It's the perfect birthday card for that person who enjoys a little extra sparkle in their life.

Everyone will have a favorite :)

These were so fun to make and I can't wait for the wedding!!!!

As promised, here is the finished thank you card that my best friend chose! Well, one of them at least. She asked me to make an assortment of different colors so I had a great time picking out paper and ribbon for this project.

This is one of my favorites so I thought it deserved a close up, but I'll post a photo of all the different colors as well.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but I only glued down the center part of the ribbon and the very center of the flower so it doesn't lie flat on the card. You know how much I hate that :)
