Card stands


I made these cards quite awhile ago but thought it was time to post them. Something a little different for me with no coloring but it was fun to just use some dies for a change …


Not sure why but this card makes me happy !!! I love watching birds of any kind …

You can click on the small pictures to make them larger if you like.

These are Joy Craft card stands that you can make out of any kind of paper to display your cards on. Mine are just made from the matching cardstock. There is a 3rd die in the set but will have to take a new picture to show it later…

Thanks for stopping by to share what makes me happy …

Hugs, Janie

Simple Diaper Fold

1st I want to wish the DT girls that are leaving us the very best & am so sorry to see them go. Also want to give the 7 new girls who were chosen to represent TPS a warm welcome & know you’re going to really enjoy being here. It’s a wonderful place to be a part of.
I know you’re expecting a baby card but The Paper Shelter wants us to make a card with many folds & right away I thought of the wonderful Diaper Fold card a sweet lady Irene shared with me quite awhile back … If you join the challenge of a card with many folds this week you have the chance to win a $30 gift to spend at The Paper Shelter if you use one of their wonderful images. If you use another image you can still win but you gift would be 3 digis of your choice from them. Still a great prize cuz they have a lot of really cute stuff …
The only image I had with me to color was a cute little Fair Day digi from TPS… This is the simplest card fold to make … I didn’t even remember to take my embellishments so am trying to throw a little extras on this evening to spruce it up a little. With these darling little images it doesn’t take much.
I even got a little shot of one of my daughter Bridgette’s many quilts. She can make a quilt faster than I can make a card …
All you do is fold any size square in half (mine is 9 x 9) then you fold the edges in

& fold the top down & squeeze the sides just a bit & it makes an instant pouch.

No glue needed it just folds & stays together wonderfully …
Then you can decorate it or add a few little gift items or candy treats or a gift card poked in there would be so nice for anyone to receive.
Colored with Copics 
Skin - E000, E01, E93
Hair - E50, E53, E35
Blues - B45, B41, B0000
Balloon - YR000- YR00, YR01
Shirt & Shoes - E35

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Besides my family & friends, it’s what makes me happy & keeps me broke …
Hugs, Janie

Back to School

This weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Back to School" & when my daughters were in school that meant SHOPPING !!! We would spend $100's of $$$ & after a week they "didn't have a thing to wear". Heaven forbid they wear anything they already had or that had a small hole in it... NOW people are paying over $100 for ONE pair of jeans that HAVE holes all over them on purpose !!! How ironic is that !!!
This little digi image is called Shopping Girl & prints out like a dream & even comes with a background paper . If you use an image from the Paper Shelter for this weeks challenge you have a chance to win a generous $30 gift certificate. If you use another image & are picked you could win 3 digis of your choice.
The sentiment reminds me of my daughters & I, if something fit we DID buy one of every color cuz we could never make up our minds. Unfortunately WE still have that habit only mine is now stamps, ink & cardstock ...
These little shopping bags are so cute but looked a little empty so I made a slit in them, poked some scraps of colored tissue paper into them & added a little bling of Stickles.. 
Have a great day & thank you for stopping by & please check out the many, many amazing images here at the Paper Shelter.
Remember there is a design team call here also & if you'd like to have a chance playing with some of these images just enter the DT call & you could be one of the 7 new ladies we're looking for ... So grab your crafting supplies & let's see the fabulous creations you can whip up.
Hugs, Janie
