Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

(If you’re looking for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Oh, Snap! blog hop – click here for my post!)

Hi! I couldn’t have a post today without paying tribute to all the moms out there, whether you have a human baby/child or a fur baby, moms do so much to care for others – they all deserve a big hug, especially today! My mom is my crafty inspiration! She is an amazing crafter who has done so many different things over the course of her life – I have very fond memories of so many of her crafty creations!

So, it’s my day to share a project over at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog and I couldn’t resist using Lisa’s Mother’s Day Cards Cutting Files along with my mom’s favorite color (purple)! Here’s what I created:


And, yep, I thought it’d be fun to make it a shaker card – I will admit, that idea would have been easier to accomplish if I would have cut the background oval the same size as the sentiment oval, but I was able to get it to work and voila, a celebration of Mother’s Day that is even more fun, hehe!

Here are some detail pictures:



And here’s a picture of the sequins when the card is lying down:


Well, I don’t want to keep you from your Mother’s Day celebration. I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful day!

Happy crafting! (And if you didn’t see the blog hop from yesterday, be sure to check that out, starting at Lisa’s blog! Lots of inspiration, a free cut file and some blog candy are available!)


I’m entering the Stuck on U Sketches Die cut Challenge: Mothers and the Simon Says Stamp Simon Says Let’s Get Sentimental challenge.

I used: Patterned paper and gems from Bo Bunny, Sequins from Doodlebug Design, Pretty Pink Posh and Whimsical Twist, Ribbon from May Arts and Adhesive from ScrapPerfect, Snaketape and Zig.
