Starburst Thank You

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was fairly productive craft-wise, not so much in the cleaning department, haha! I was able to work on some cards for my upcoming card class. Stay tuned for information on this class. But on to today's card. I saw this layout on a card from Pinterest. I used the super cute Retro Fresh DSP. I am in love with this paper. I think I really like the fun springy colors in it. I stamped the sentiment from Starburst Sayins in Coastal Cabana and cut it out with the Starburst Framelits. The flower behind the starburst is from the Floral Framelits dies. I think this is the first time I actually used these dies. I have no idea what took me so long to use them. I then added some gold sequin trim and Crushed Curry ribbon. I finished it off with a very vintage designer button. This was a pretty quick card to put together. I think it would be cute to try this out with other DSPs.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Camper Love

Happy Monday! I am so excited to share this fun project with you today. I cannot take credit for this idea. It was done by the talented Erica Cerwin. I bought this tutorial from her because I fell in love with this camper. I wanted to make this camper for my husband for valentine's day and fill it with candy. There is currently no candy in it yet because I don't have any. But I'm so happy with how this came out. I could probably tweak a couple of things to make it look a little better but I don't think my husband is going to notice the little things that I do. I followed Erica's tutorial and just made a few changes of my own, like using different colors and what not. It was actually not that hard to do. I plan to make another one, just because. I apologize for the blurry "Love you" sign sticking up from the camper. For some reason I could not get that to be in focus for me. Every picture I took it was blurry. But I think you get the idea. I will post the supplies that I used for this camper but if you want the step by step instructions, head on over to Erica's blog for the tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today's super cute Valentine's project!
