Bah Hum Bug Card

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today as many of you know.......Is my FAVORITE day of the month.  The 3rd Thursday is the day following my monthly Stamp Camp......and it's the one day of the month that all bets are off and I do absolutely whatever I want to do.  Today I'm going to hang out in my studio and make cards with all the new Holiday Catalog product that I've received.  My card share for today........Is another Holiday card.....and we are going to jump right in with that share......
Here's the sweetest "Bah Hum Bug" card you could ask for.
I stamped the sentiment onto Basic Black cardstock and used Whisper White embossing powder to set my "Bah Hum Bug".
Here's a close-up of  all the different layers of framelits that I used for my "Bah Hum Bug" sentiment.
I used some Designer Series Paper for my two center panels.....and I embossed my Cherry Cobbler panel for a little added WOW FACTOR!
One of the final touches that I added to this card was a piece of Basic Black Chevron Ribbon around the center of my card.
Such a FESTIVE and HAPPY holiday card.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share my final holiday card with you ......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Gold Embossed Ornament Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
Today's card share is way on the side of elegant ........ however ........ it's one of those easy card to mass-produce for the holidays.  Let's jump right in with today's card share.........
Here's the card I made.
I die-cut out one solid black oval ....... And then created a gold "framed" oval with the help of two ovals die-cut out at the same time.  This process helped me to create a frame to stack over my solid black oval.
I then created this GORGEOUS embossed gold ornament ....... and attached it in the center of my solid black oval with dimensionals.  I used a teeny tiny piece of Gold Taffeta ribbon at the top of my ornament ...... so my ornament appears to be hanging on the solid black oval.
Here's a close-up look at my focal image.
My final touch was to use Gold Embossing Powder on my "Season's Greetings" sentiment.
Think this card is just over the top ...... And will be making several of these for my 2015 holiday cards.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you one more holiday card ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Triple Snowflake Card


Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
Well my friends.......I was like jello by the time I arrived home after my massage with Rebekah yesterday.  It was one uninterrupted hour of pure JOY and HAPPINESS.  I have to say that by the time Rebekah is finished with my massage......I have ZERO PAIN in my hands and feet.  LOVE IT!

Today I have a pretty holiday card to share with you......One that uses lots of soon-to-be retired Stampin' UP! holiday product.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
I stamped three snowflakes onto Whisper White cardstock - using Lost Lagoon ink.  I then punched out each of my snowflakes with a 1-1/4" circle punch and matted those snowflakes onto a 1-3/8" Soft Sky circle.
Here's a close-up of the three stamped snowflakes.
Here you can see how I used dimensional adhesive to pop up all three of my snowflakes.
I also added a couple layers of circles behind my three stamped snowflakes .......... And for those I used the new Dazzling Detail Glimmer Paper.
My Soft Sky background piece was embossed with the soon-to-be retired snowflake embossing folder......
And I added a pretty sentiment to the lower right hand corner of my card.
Just LOVE LOVE LOVE how this card turned out.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you another Holiday Card that I made ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Holiday Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
A little something I planned before I went on vacation was to treat myself to a massage with Rebekah.  I also decided to treat myself when I returned home from vacation to a follow-up massage with Rebekah.  Today I'm spending the better part of my morning doing some SERIOUS PAMPERING!

My card share for today.......Is a holiday gift card holder.  Check out this super quick and easy gift card holder that is made with the Stampin' UP! envelope liner die.......
I used Real Red cardstock for my gift card holder.
Here's a soon-to-retired SU holiday stamp.......that I used to stamp my ornament stamp with Encore Silver ink and then used the FABULOUS SU silver embossing powder to finish off my "to/from" ornament tag.
I also stamped lots of snowflakes all over my gift card holder......And I used Real Red ink to stamp those snowflakes.
Some Whisper White Seam Binding was added around my gift card holder......and I added a glue dot to the back of my stamped ornament and secured it onto my holder.
All that was left to do was add a gift card......And of course......I will be using these gift card holders to send my kids part of their holiday gifts..........Starbucks gift cards (of course).

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you another Holiday card I recently made ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Remember This Notebooks

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Well.......Spent most of yesterday cleaning....doing laundry.......grocery shopping and unpacking.  WOW ..... I'm thinking it might be nice to have a vacation after my vacation.  Got it all done and now I'm gearing up for a FUN PACKED week.  Let's jump right in with my share for today.....
Check out these ADORABLE notebooks I created.
I used the new Kraft Grid Journals (page 200 of the Annual Catalog).  This notebook I covered in some DSP from the Flashback DSP stack.
I added a distressed Tea Lace Paper Doilies and some flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
This one I used some retired Gingham Garden DSP.......
And all three of these notebooks I used the new Project Life Remember This stamp set.
I used the Moonlight DSP Stack to cover this journal......
And one final touch to all the notebooks was to add some coordinating Candy Dots to the center of all the flowers.
Just love how these turned out.......and they will be PERFECT to drop into my purse for some quick note taking.

Mary Fish CASE

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Well........We arrived back in Arizona yesterday and we are getting settled back to our beautiful sunny life.

My card share for today is a sweet little CASE card that my good friend Mary Fish shared on her blog last month.  I used this card to make my daughter a bunch of Thank You cards for her business and here is what I created for her......
It's a BEAUTIFUL Thank-You card.
It uses the Black and White Basic DSP........And each of the squares have been tear-dropped shaped with my Project Life Corner Rounder.
The sentiment is a simple thank you message.......With a  Real Red bitty punch heart added to the flag end.  After mounting my heart to my sentiment with dimensional adhesive.....I added some Crystal Effects over the heart for a SERIOUS WOW FACTOR!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you more Kards by Kadie creations ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Happiness Album

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Well.......vacation time is over.....and it's time for me to leave my kids and head back home to Arizona.  Will miss the kids BIG TIME ......... but am soooo looking forward to getting back to my pool - Studio - and friends!  My share for today is a special little album that I made while on vacation in Wisconsin.  I'm going to use it to capture the fun Hailey and I had over at Johnson Creek Outlet Mall on Wednesday.
This little album came together in a snap.....
And has lots of space for pictures.........
And envelopes where you can stash little treasures or use to tuck some special and private journaling notes.
Here's two of the pages.....
Two more pages......
And a close-up of one of the envelope pockets  I plan to tuck some private and very special journaling in each of these envelope pockets that are within this album.
Two more pages.....
Another two pages.....
More pages......
And the last two pages.
Here's what the album looks like when it's completely closed up......
And how when the ribbon is untied....the flap slides open to reveal all the pages in this darling little album.
My plan is to use this album to capture all the cute pictures I took of Hailey sitting on the kiddie rides at Johnson Creek.  Here's just a couple of those pictures......
With Pooh Bear......
Dumbo......
Big Bird......
And one last Saddle-UP! ride.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a lovely CASE card from my dear friend Mary Fish ......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
