Stephanie & Katie Rock The Blog ♥

Hey every"buggy"! Stephanie here today.
Two weeks ago I celebrated my birthday and I have such amazing family & friends. I was showered with many gifts & surprises, so now I have many "thank you" cards to send!
Here are a few that I have created
     I made a trio of cards featuring Lovebug Creations' rumple ribbon in Fool's GoldPurple-dise and I Love Grunge. You can read more about each individual card on my blog.
Make it a crafty day, y'all!
HOW FUN IS THIS!!!!  This is a one on one swap with the Marie Antoinette group and I just loved making this for my partner.  It measures 4.5 inches tall by 4 inches wide when closed.... when closed with that BEAUTIFUL blue Rumple Ribbon from the new spring collection.  I  just love how versatile this product it is.  I really use it on 90% of my projects!
Here are a few pics - but for a better look, stop by the Video.  To help secure that large piece of lace I added some buttons and a stick pin.
 Inside, I made a little pocket for some treats.  That Mama's Mesh always comes in handy for pockets.  And a isn't that rick rack HUGE!!  I liked the layering of the two.
 Here I stitched in a few pieces of felt to hold the needles and pins.  On the blue page I added a little piece of lace and I just love how pretty and simple that looks!

Stephanie & Katie's Springtime Fun ♥

Hey Lovebug friends!
It's Stephanie here to share a quick card with you all today.

This simple card can be used for a variety of occasions. I used white Mama's Mesh on the base of the card & tied a dainty bow to the tag. My bow is made from the gorgeous "Purple-Dise" from the On the Edge collection. 
You can read more about this card on my blog
Make it a great day!   
A couple of my favorite crafty girls host the Scrap Cafe on Facebook.  I don't swap with them often (enough) but I just couldn't pass up the spring mason jar filled with lace and trim (no ribbon).  We were to bling up the outside of the jar in a 'spring' feel and I thought the green Mama's Mesh screamed SPRING to me!! Around the top of this one I added a piece of I Love Grunge (I just can not get enough of that one!!) and a pretty spring button. Hope the girls can use their new goodies :)

Some Fancy Cards by Dawn Mercedes ♥

I dug out another old, but dear,Stampin Up stamp set:  Sage Advice.
Here is some Sage Advice for you...
Get over and check out all the fantastic colors at the Lovebug Creations site!
Pick out six of your favorites...and buy yourself a spring treat!

Since I had so much color in the background, today I used Buttercream Rumple Ribbon.

This fancy fold is called a Double Dutch fold.

Pretty fun, don't you think!

Here is a card I made using Simply Sheer Ribbon:

This sheer ribbon adds a bit of color and shimmer, but keeps your card/project light and airy!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an enjoyable Easter Holiday this weekend!
