Cards? can some people put them together so easily? There are some very talented card makers out there...girls who I adore and think...why can't I do that! I find it challenging to work on cards so I don't do it often enough!

However...I decided that I was going to make a halfway decent card this month using my February kit from My Scrapbook Nook. How could I go wrong with Basic Grey paper, chipboard and journaling diecuts?

Here is what I came up with!

When I study my favorite cardmakers, I notice ribbon...usually thick ribbon that has a presence. So I used some! I placed the alphabet right on top to make it bold!

Another thing I notice from others is that they totally go with a theme and really do lots of embellishing in small spaces. I channeled that for this card.

Here I just decided to use the vine in a different way that originally intended! No border sticker when it can be a flower stem!

What do you do to make a fabulous card? I am looking for tips and advice!

I am making a promise to make at least two cards each month. I want to, I need to, I have to!


  1. Beautiful, beautiful!! Please keep making cards, they are wonderful. And wow, I loooove that Basic Grey!!

  2. So cute Stacey, I am with you though girl. I have a terrible time when it come to creating cards. But yours turn out great!!

  3. Is there a prize for becoming your 100th follower? I'm JUST kidding!!! Your work is so inspiring Stacey! Love love love everything you do. Your cards are amazing, you should do them more often ;)

  4. Love these did an awesome job with all of them!!!

    Have a great day sweet friend! :-)

  5. I struggle so much with cards, yours are awesome!!! Your style is just fabulous!!!

  6. I have the toughest time with cards too but yours are amazing!! Love them all!

  7. You did a fabulous job with these!

  8. Gorgeous cards! You rock the Basic Grey!

  9. Stacey you are absolutely crazy because your cards are gorgeous! I think you should be giving me tips ;o) Great job!

  10. these are gorgeous! I love the way you see things like the border sticker differently.

  11. Love your cards Stacey! You're doing everything right in my eyes!

    One thing I've noticed about my card making is that everything doesn't have to be centered, you can easly cluster your sentiment/embellies on on side and just have one small piece to balance it off, or let the embellies run outside the card!

    Congrats on making DT for the nook another term, cant wait to see what you create!



Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
