Whimsical Mini Journals with Victorian Cats

Hello all!

Today I thought I'd bring a bit of whimsy and feature several mini journals I created using Deena's (from Ewe-N-Me Printables) adorable Hang Tags - Victorian Cats. These images were irresistible -- the kitty faces are so sweet!

There are four different images and you will get two of each on an 8.5" x 11" sheet. 

The colors on the images are soft so I decided to cover each of the mini journals with pastel cardstock. 

I adorned each journal with lace or a decorative trimming and a vintage style embellishment!

But, my favorite part was adding the printed words to give a whimsical touch. It was so much fun to match up the words with these adorable kitties!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Please visit the Ewe-N-Me Printables website for inspiration for your creative endeavors!!

Birthday Card with Sepia Swirls

Hello and Happy New Year!

Winter has just begun, but already my mind is on flowers! Deena'sBottle Cap Images - Sepia Swirls provided me with the perfect opportunity to create a lovely floral birthday card.

The bottlecap images are not something that I have worked with very much, and I thought the new year would be a great time to explore some new creations. 

I love the Sepia Swirl images because they appeal to my love of vintage and they are so striking with the black floral image against the sepia script. There are six different one-inch round images -- and you will receive six of each on a page.

For my card, I punched out four different images with my 1-1/4 inch punch. I like the white border with this size punch because it really makes the images pop against the kraft paper flowers that I adhered them to.

I cut out stems and leaves with black cardstock and glued them to a Stitched Greeting Card - Kraft with Canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. I then adhered the flowers to the top of each stem.

I attached the Happy Birthday panel to the bottom corner and adorned that with two pearl embellishments. The color of this card is so perfect of this time of year -- the flowers are so sweet but they don't look out of season.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!
