Seed packets are so pretty, full of promise & hope.  I have to admit, the promise sometimes outweighs the hope, I'm not the most attentive gardener!

But you can't go wrong with these six seed-packet-inspired cards, they are just as they seem; full of beautiful botanicals, lovely sentiments and all the sweet little details that make card making special.

What you'll need: 


Roller-type adhesive for putting cards together.  
Regular Foam squares & THIN foam squares

Mini, Micro and Craft 3/8" Glue dots 

Dotto or Liquid glue for delicate die cuts

Throwback Thursday: Quilting Bee Cards

Back in Stock!
Very limited supplies.

I've made one quilt in my life.  37 years ago!  For my son who moved into a 'real' bed.  I stenciled rocking horses on squares and put that baby together... it was quite a job, which is probably why I've never made another one.  I have several friends and lots of students who quilt and I so admire the patience and exactness it requires.

I love the tradition of it all and wanted to capture that look on cards.  I have some fun new techniques to share with you, lace and ribbon, new charms and beautiful sentiments!  Everything is pre-cut and ready to assemble with basic supplies.

Each kit includes a slideshow (use on computer, tablet or even your phone!) that makes putting these five cards together super easy!  It also includes all the printables for future card making.

Quilting Bee Cards

What you'll need:

Adhesives: Your favorite tape to put cards together, foam squares and glue dots (mini, micro and craft) and scotch tape.

Tools: Scissors (long & fine-tipped), micro hole & 1/8" punch and Corner Rounder.  Paper piercer. 

Misc: Distress "Frayed Burlap" Ink pad & Sponge.  Craft Mat (to work on), lid (to keep small pieces in), pencil.

Any questions?  Just email me

Q's Creative Card Kit: GLAM GIRL

I must admit, I miss glamming up a bit once in a while.  I was a bit of a tomboy growing up and came to the glam-life (if you can call it that!) later than most.  But I'm making up for it!

I still only own one purse, but I'll all about lipstick, jewelry and a great pair of sunglasses!

And now I had the chance to glam-up some great girl cards, full of BLING, I mean, the biggest, over the top bling I've ever done!

As well as this stunning pink palette, glammy embellishments & ribbon. TWO cute purse cards, TWO new pop & Stand card templates, one with a gift card slider and TWO red/pink lacey cards with adorable puffy heart trim.

I seriously had so much fun designing these cards and I know you will love making them!

Glam Girl Card Kit comes with everything you need to assemble 6 cards because everything is pre-cut and scored and it comes with a step-by-step slideshow (and written instructions as well).  You also get bonus cut files and printables!
