Trio of cards, featuring Spellbinders Die D-Lites

Hello crafty friends! I am so excited to be sharing my first guest post on the Spellbinders blog.  There is more detail and instructions on how I made these cards over on their blog, so please stop by and leave me some love!  (Supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.)

Today, I’m working with some cute Die D-Lites.  The little animals are so cute, and I decided to make a few birthday cards.  I also love a good cheese burger and fries, so I made another card as well.


I filmed a YT process video if you’re interested:


My favorite technique for the background has always been ink blending, so that is what I did for all three of my cards.

I love the way my cards turned out…they are so cute!  I have loved working with Spellbinders metal dies, and I hope you are inspired to get crafty.

Happy Tuesday!








Magic, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

I made a new layout using the February 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I used one of the March free cut files, which you can access from the website if you have an account, and I was challenged to use this week’s sketch.

I filmed a process video if you’re interested:


I decided to scrapbook all the Hip Kit Club DT announcements that I have been a part of.  I love being on the HKC DT so much!

8 cards, featuring Spellbinders March 2019 Card of the Month kit

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 8 cards that I made using the Spellbinders March 2019 Card of the Month kit: Relax & Enjoy.  These kits are jam packed with everything you’d need to make a card, from card bases & envelopes, to double sided tape and foam squares.  I will also be using some kit add ons: Relax & Enjoy 6×6 paper padsentiment stickers, vellum butterfly stickers, and clear stamp set, which you can get here.

I filmed a video showing the process of some of the cards:


I absolutely love butterflies, and the butterfly die cut ephemera pieces from the kit, and the vellum butterfly add ons are gorgeous.

For this card, I used 3 vellum butterflies, a sentiment sticker, white yardstick, a piece of pattern paper from the paper pad, and a card base.  This card may be one of my favorites, and it was probable the quickest to put together.

For this card, I used a piece of pattern paper from the paper pad, one of the 3×4 cards, the butterfly and banner die cut ephemera, and a card base.  I added some machine stitching to the banner for added texture and interest in my card.  The colors in these kits are so gorgeous!

My next set of cards are cacti and succulent themed.

For this card, I used pattern paper, a 3×4 card, some of the die cut ephemera, and a card base.  I love the foiling detains in the die cut ephemera pack!

ahsang sb MarCOTM 10

For this card, I used the stamp set, and the black cardstock that came in the kits.  I stamped a background piece using the cactus stamp.  I also stamped an extra cactus, colored it with Zig clean color real brush pens, and fussy cut it.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder on the black cardstock.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 12

For this card, I used pattern paper, a 3×4 card, sentiment stickers, the cacti and flowers metal dies, and a card base.  I die cut the pieces of the cacti from the green and mirror foiled cardstock included in the kit.  There wasn’t a pink cardstock in the kit, so I just ink blended some Picked Raspberry distress ink onto white cardstock, and die cut the flowers.

My last few cards are all about relaxing.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 9

For this card, I used pattern paper, a tiny piece of the mirror foiled cardstock, die cut ephemera coffee cups, sequins, and a card base.  I love that sequins that matched the foiling details were included in the kits!

ahsang sb MarCOTM 11

For this card, I used black cardstock, a sentiment sticker, die cut ephemera, sequins, and a card base.  I added some machine stitching to this card as well.

For my last card, I used pattern paper, ephemera pieces, cardstock, and some of the flowers and leaves metal dies.  I used the cardstock from the kit to cut out the flowers and leaves.

I really love how quick and easy most of these cards came together!  I love how much were included in these kits as well!

Here is an image of what was included in the kits.


The only things I used from my own stash was my Platinum6 die cutting machine, a circle die from the Spellbinders nestabilities standard circles, fun foam, and liquid glue.  For the stamped card, I used ink, Versamark ink, and white embossing powder from my stash.

I hope you like my cards, and I hope you check out the Spellbinders card of the month kits.  They are so much fun to play with, and are such a great value!

Happy Saturday!


all together, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  I’m here with a layout that I shared on the Hip Kit Club FB page yesterday for Sketch Friday.  I actually designed the sketch for this week, so it was extra fun working on my layout.

ahsang HKC 2.15.19sketch


I have a process video of the layout as well on my YT channel if you’re interested!


I am using the Hip Kit Club January 2019 Main Kit, and a few pieces from the Color Kit, Project Life Kit, and Embellishment Kit.

Here is what I came up with using the sketch:

ahsang HKC all together 2

We had family photos taken almost 2 years ago, and I’m finally getting the photo scrapped.  As I’ve mentioned in a couple of blog posts now, I am playing catch-up, and am trying to fill the empty spots in my albums.

I divided my layout in half like the sketch, but instead of having a photo take up the whole left side, I used some pattern paper.  I ripped the paper and added machine stitching for some texture.  I still used a large photo on that side (5×7), and I like that I was able to use a photo that I already had printed.

I also made some more of the layered stitched hearts that I have been loving and used many times on past layouts.  I used the Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity dies, and some of the pattern papers from the Main kit.

Like the sketch, I added some large ink splatters.  I used a Shimmerz vibez called Snow Way Man from a previous Color kit, and I used the Prima Color Bloom shimmer spray in Fairy Pond.  I also used the small star cluster stamp from the Shimelle Head in the Clouds stamp set.

I placed the title and journaling like the sketch as well; both are Pinkfresh Studio products.  I love when the titles come together easily, thanks to stickers.

I really like how my layout turned out.  I’m so thrilled to fill another empty spot in my album!

Two, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey everyone!

I’ve got a layout today featuring the Hip Kit Club January 2019 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, Color Kit, and Project Life Kit.

I have a YT process video if you’re interested!



I am documenting my daughter enjoying a slice of cake at her 2nd birthday party.  She wanted to eat her cake all by herself, and she did a pretty darn good job!  Isn’t she just the cutest?!!!

I haven’t really scrapbooked her birthday party yet, but when I saw the celebrate thickers in the January embellishment kit, I knew it was perfect.

ahsang hkc two 1

I was challenged to use the b sides of paper, and the Pinkfresh Studio chipboard frames.  Since I was going to use the frames, I remembered a cut file that we got from the HKC 12 days of giving (It’s day 12).  I just removed the Christmas words before cutting, and then I used them to back my photos.

ahsang hkc two 3

I wanted to do a little bit of work on my background.  I used the stencil and the modeling paste that we got in the Color kit.  I used some shimmerz from previous color kits, and I created some texture on the background.  I added some light blue splatters as well.

I added the pattern paper frames, the photos, and the chipboard frames.

I used the Pinkfresh Studio layered heart stickers, the “hooray for cake” sticker and the silver glitter star stickers from the Celebrate Thickers, and some puffy hearts from the Pinkfresh Studio puffy sticker sheet to embellish my layout.

To finish off my layout, I added the title and my journaling strips.

That’s it for me!  I really love how my layout turned out, and I hope you do too!

Happy Thursday!



December Daily, day 25 & a pocket page

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing day 25 and the last pocket page of my December Daily 2018.  I also have a process video if you’re interested:


For day 25, I had a lot of instax photos that I wanted on one layout.  I took a bunch of photos after Christmas lunch using the Santa FB filter, and I love them all.  I was trying to figure out how to get them all on the page, especially since I can’t cut the instax film, when I remembered the waterfall technique floating around instagram.  So, through trial & error, I decided to give it a try.

ahsang HKC DD25 1

I used a lot of the 3×4 PL cards from the Hip Kit Club 2018 December Documented kit, and a Hip Kit Club exclusive paper from the 2018 December Main kit for the background.

I really love how it came out, and I’m glad I gave it a try!

On the left side, is a photo that I printed, then cut out into a circle with my silhouette cameo machine.

I also made a pocket page to house all the Christmas cards that we get inn the mail.  I used another Hip Kit Club exclusive paper from the December Main kit.

On the left is a full page photo of the kids (hearts for privacy).

That’s it for now.  I’ll be sharing a flip through video of my album soon, so keep a look out for that!

Happy Thursday!
