Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Card

challengebadgefeb19-2

The challenge this month at a2z Scrapbooking is this amazing Mood board.  I was so inspired by this board I now have multiple projects going on all around my craft room – the colors lend themselves to loads of projects, for all kinds of cards, not just Valentine’s day!

I received this die in a mystery box I purchased and I’ve been waiting for the right time to use it and I think this was the perfect time!  I hope you find the Mood Board as inspiring as I did and you enter a project into the February a2z Scrapbooking challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

On The Prairie with Hero Arts

a2z scrapbooking anything goes January challenge

Hello crafty friends! Thank you for stopping by and I am hoping my post will give you some inspiration to join us here at a2z Scrapbooking’s January 2019 challenge.  With a theme like “Anything Goes” you must have some Hero Arts {or Sugartree} products around somewhere that you can use to whip up a quick card; and if you feel like you need just a few more goodies feel free to scroll the the bottom of this post and grab my discount.  There are still a few days left for you to enter so get making! You don’t have to use Hero Arts or Sugartree products but if you do you will be in the running for a $20 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking etsy store!

prairie final 2

I received the Hero Arts On the Prairie Fancy die set in a gift package and I was stumped on how I was going to use it.  I’ve always been a fan of Southwestern Art so I loved the set and it seemed that a card just couldn’t do it justice.  So I decided to make a wall hanging.  I hope you like it as much as I do!  If you are interested in seeing how this was made feel free to jump on over to my personal blog, Art Without Anxiety.   Hope to see your creations in the challenge! See you soon!

Celebrate the New Year with Hero Arts

Yes, I am a tad late, but why not celebrate as long as you can?!? I made this card for the current a2z Scrapbooking challenge, Anything Goes {personally my favorite theme!}. I used a bunch of embellishments, embossing powders and metallic papers to give this card the festive feel a celebration deserves!  I used a bunch of embellishments, embossing powders and metallic papers to give this card the festive feel a celebration deserves!  I hope you had a fabulous New Year and if you’d like to see all the details of this card please pop over to my blog, Art Without Anxiety.  Thanks SO much for stopping by!

Home for the Holidays with Hero Arts

Home for the Holidays, Hero Arts

I made this little scene for the Winter Wonderland challenge at a2z Scrapbooking.  While this is actually a Christmas set,  you can use the little houses any time of year! I can picture the roaring fire, everyone hanging around drinking hot cocoa {real hot cocoa, not the mix kind}, all snug in their flannel pajamas.  Works for me! A perfect restful scene after the hectic holidays!

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can all the details on what I used to create this card by going to Art Without Anxiety, my personal blog.

Happy Holidays with Hero Arts Christmas Swirl Digital Stamps!

I am so loving this card! I’m sure when I become proficient with digi’s I’ll be making some really stunning cards, but for now, this one takes the cake for me!  Even though the holidays has passed I thought I’d squeak in one more holiday card, and, if you take out the Happy Holidays, you could use it for any winter theme!  We’d love for you to join us at a2z Scrapbooking with your Winter Wonderland cards, but hurry!!! 

Here is my card

And a close up of the sparkle – I used gems, a gold gelly roll pen and clear Wink of Stella to give this card some shine 🙂

Hero Arts You Are Appreciated

Hello everyone! Here is the card I made for my second monthly post at a2z Scrapbooking.  I was thumbing through some of my older Stamper’s Sampler magazines, specifically a “Catch Up Issue” and it reminded me of how we used to decorate cards with fibers.  I still have a HUGE drawer full of fibers, so I dug some out to decorate this card:

YouAreAppreciated a2z

 

I hope you can find some time to join me and all my talented teammates in the a2z Scrapbooking monthly challenge; the November theme is “Give Thanks.”  Can’t have enough thank you cards on hand if you ask me! For all the details on how I made this card please pop over to my personal bog, Art Without Anxiety.   Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post! You are appreciated!!

Hero Arts Leafy Vines Thanks

a2z scrapbooking november challenge

Hello everyone! Here is my first card for the month of November and a2z Scrapbooking “Give Thanks” challenge.  I used some older Hero Arts stamps to create this card:

Leafy Vines, Thank You Stamp & Cut

 

I hope you like the fall colors and the sparkle.  This background, Leafy Vines, is one of my absolute favorites; it’s so versatile and you can see all the ways other crafters have created with it with a quick Pinterest search {while you are there, don’t forget to follow a2z Scrapbooking – the link is at the bottom of this post.}  If you’d like to see all the details regarding this card please pop on over to my personal blog Art Without Anxiety.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!

Hero Arts Spooky Labels Card

Hello dear reader!

I have stepped out of my comfort zone and made a card using the Hero Arts Digital Spooky Labels set (just a little note Hero Arts Digital Sets are ONLY available at a2z Scrapbooking.)  One of my wonderful team mates shared a tutorial on how to use digital stamps using Word, and I am quite proud of the card I designed using the directions.  I hope you like this card as much as I do!

Happy Halloween Digi

Happy Owl-O-Ween by Hero Arts

Hello dear readers! I am thrilled to have been chosen to be on the Design Team for a2z Scrapbooking and I appreciate the warm welcome that my team mates have given me. Halloween is my favorite holiday; I have loved spooky stuff since I can remember!  So when I saw this new Happy Owl-O-Ween set I knew I HAD to get it; in my opinion you can never have too many Halloween sets!  Here is the card that I made for the October challenge, “Frightfully Fun”:

Happy Owl-O-Ween

One of the BEST things about a2z Scrapbooking is the ability to order whatever you need.  It’s so easy; the custom order button is at the end of the product list on every page of the store:
