Feather Thank You Card

Posted by Susan on Monday, September 22, 2014 in
Feathers and chevrons are really popular in scrapbooking right now, and I decided to combine the two to create this lovely thank you card featuring the colours of the season.

I love how the orange and black worked out here to create a nice autumn colour palette but doesn't lean toward Halloween. Funny enough, two of the papers I used for this card are from Halloween paper packs, but I think they were generic enough to work on this project! Let me know what you think in the comments below!


Paper - K&Company and miscellaneous Halloween paper stack
Cardstock - Bazzil
Dies - Die-namics (feather) and Tim Holtz/Sizzix - (Plaque & Poster edge die)

Beautiful Fall - Prima Paper Dolls

Posted by Susan on Monday, September 15, 2014 in ,
More new supplies to play with brings more new projects! I have been resisting the Prima Paper Dolls by Julie Nutting trend for a long time thinking I had no idea how I would use them. But seeing other great projects online inspired me to pick one up - and once I started the ideas began to flow and now I can't wait to get more.

Here's my first Prima Paper Doll project - a great fall tag I plan to use on a nice little thank you gift!

Fall is in the air

Posted by Susan on Monday, September 08, 2014 in
I love the fall season! I love the temperature. I love the colours. I love Thanksgiving and Halloween. And I love pulling out all my favourite fall paper lines and playing with projects.

Today I got to play with some new supplies - A sunflower stamp from Stampendous and my new Blendabilities markers from Stampin' Up.

Tags are such a great way to play with your new supplies on a small canvas - and when they're done, you can use them on all sorts of things - birthday gifts, thank you gifts, a nice bottle of wine hostess gift, you can put them on layouts or add them to a card! I just use some cardstock and a hole punch to make the tag base - fast, easy, and I can make it any size or colour I need.

Art Journal - Wings to Fly

Posted by Susan on Thursday, September 04, 2014 in
This was a really fun project because I got to play with some great new tools that made parts of the creative process a little easier (ie. the Tsukineko Squeegee), and I really liked the way it turned out.

I'm also really happy because I was able to use this project to create my first walk-through video for the Scrapbooking Cafe, and I would like to share the project and video with you. I'm hoping to do these "Mixed Media Moments" a bit more often, so if you like it, please comment here or on YouTube, and don't forget to subscribe to the blog and my YouTube channel for more videos to come!
