Guesting at Catered Crop!

Hi! I'm sharing a card today as a guest designer for Catered Crop!!! The theme...think green, how easy is that!! With everything beginning to green up and bloom it was a refreshing card to design!


I started with this pretty green paper by October Afternoon. After adding it to my card base I attached the paper doily and a filigree die cut border by PTI. More of my favorite PPP chevron twill ribbon and a Reverse Confetti die cut tag came next. My sentiment (RC) & hydrangea (Inkadinkado) are embossed in gold. A little sprinkle of PPP gold cupped sequins for more sparkle finished things off.

Thanks for taking a peek, hope you're enjoying the weekend ~Lisa


An Interview!

Hey there bloggy blog  friends! No card today. I'm just popping in to let you know that my sweet blogging friend Deepti has asked me to be her interview guest for {Fascinating Friday's} on the Paperie Designs' Studio blog!! Eeeeek how fun! So pop over if you would like to know a bit more about me. Then take a little walk down memory lane with some of my previous projects.

Have a delightful day ~Lisa


A Happy Easter!

With this being Holy Week, I'm taking a break in honor of our Savior. I have a scheduled post tomorrow and one on Saturday that you might enjoy. I'll be back next week with new projects. 

I'm looking forward to the beautiful Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday night. It's our favorite Mass of the year! We're hosting Easter dinner at our house on Sunday afternoon. It's a smaller group than usual. But we're still looking forward to family, food and fun! Oh...and jelly beans too *wink*!


Have a blessed Easter. ~Lisa


DeNami Inspired by!

Good day friends! It's time for the April installment of DeNami Design's {Inspired By}. This month we are featuring a card by the delightful Barb Murphy. You can see the original post on her pretty card here. Each member of the design team is sharing their interpretation of her card today. Thank you Barb for sharing your amazing talents with us!

Beautiful stamping, a darling tag, paper doily and fluttery butterflies...what's not to love about Barb's card! I put a twist on the angles she used then opted to emboss the doilies onto my tag. I adore the softness vellum added to her card. I chose to use it on a layered butterfly then added a small love sentiment on the tag.


I hope you like my interpretation of Barb's card. Drop by the blogs of our amazing design team to see how they were inspired! Have a good day ~Lisa

Paper Sweeties April Release Rewind!

Okay Mother Nature, you've twisted our arms long enough...we cry UNCLE!!! 80 on Sunday and snow on Tuesday, enough please! Sorry had to get that out  ~ sheesh. Now on to happier things, like a card!

For my Paper Sweeties release rewind card, I've combined the graduation cap and a couple of sentiments from the new ConGRADulations stamp set with sentiments from the Sweetie Pie and Some Bunny Loves You sets. The little heart is from the Stand Add -on: Fresh Baked set. The festive red white & blue flower sequins are Apple Pie.

I didn't use up all of my Lily Bee paper on this release, but almost!! The scraps came in handy here to paper piece the graduation caps. Just 4 full sheets left and one of them happens to be polka dots! Using up the old to make room for new!

Have a delightful day and thanks for stopping by ~Lisa


cQc #236 ~ Happy Easter!

Hey there! Easter is almost upon us and I needed one more card to send out. The new palette from this week's ColourQ challenge were a perfect starting point!


I've had this sweet bunny by PSX for years and just had to get him inky for this card! After stamping him on the white panel, I added a scrap of peachy scallops that were hanging around. They're topped with some pretty yellow Chevron Twill Ribbon from PPP and a PTI tiny tag. My sweet little Easter sentiment in by Art Inspirations. A little decorative paper and a couple of buttons adorning felt flowers tie everything together. I think this one qualifies as happy mail!


Why not think about linking your card to the ColourQ gallery this week! Stop by the blog for some fabulous inspiration from our talented design team. Have a beautiful day ~Lisa
