Sending Lots of LOVE

by Mary Moisan


Hello crafty friends, 

I really wish is was February already, because then winter would be that much closer to being over.   Yesterday's high was a whopping -16, today -3.  That's just too cold... I'm so over winter, but sadly we have several months of it left to endure.

I'm going to start thinking about May and to help us both get in the mood I have a Mother's Day card to show you today.   I love how this card came together, so easy and very girly.

I used light shades of pink and mint green for all my die cuts.  I used four dies... first, I die cut two Heart Bouquet Whispers dies from my pink pattern paper.  I glue both to my card's background pattern paper.  Next I die cut the I LOVE YOU Corner Concept die from my mint green pattern paper.  I glued this die cut behind my little envelop, added a small piece of lace ribbon and foam squares.

Next I die cut three XOXO Express Edges dies from my mint green pattern paper and two LOVE Express Edges dies from my pink pattern paper.   All those dies cuts went into my envelop.    Here are some close ups.

 I hope my Mom likes her card.  Now I'm off to make a card for my Mother-In-Law.  Until next time

Take the less travelled road

by Irit Shalom


Hello my dear crafty friends!  This is my very first project made for and with Die- Versions gorgeous dies.

As we are still waiting for the new release to come, we try to showcase our oldies, but goodies dies and my favorite are Travel ones.

This 2014 new year came  with my new WORD OF THE YEAR  and I picked the word TRY/DARE. Like don't be afraid of a failure; try harder;dare to try. You never can know what the future has for you unless you try. So once a month I will do a project with some connection to my word and this quote was the first one to use: Take the less travelled road (try to, you never know what is on this road's  end); this is your destination when you dare and it will take you to the place where your can touch the sky... Sort of.

So I made this altered printers small tray , covered with Chic Tags mix of tags on the background and then I cut a few of DV lovely dies: the  OLD GLOBE EAST on the corner, the  Bon Voyage Sweet Spots title, a couple of  OLD Suitcases and finally the whole title with Litlle Lizzie  DV font. I decided to glue the letters with Glossy Accents and then added some glossy medium over the circled  title too.

The suitcases glitter bands were made with double siided glue tape for some interest and the globe was to big big for the tray, so it was trimmed on the corner.

I really like my first DV project/ first 2014 Word of the Year project.

Hope you like it too.
