Welcome to the Slimline Card Blog Hop

Slimline cards have recently become a popular card design and many of you have been searching for inspiration to make a few slimlines of your own. This week, our talented blog hop team has been working diligently to create a few of these tall, thin card designs. We can’t wait to share a few ideas with you.

Our monthly blog hops are a wonderful way for you to gather a few ideas for future projects. Feel free to Pin these projects directly from each of our blogs and save them for later.  You may be just starting here or you may have come from Kim Loewen’s blog – either way, you are in the right place.  When you are finished viewing my Beautiful Butterfly Slimline Card, click the link at the end of my post to “hop” on over to the next website. If you get lost along the way, you will find the list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.


This past month, my creative juices have not been flowing in the right direction. If you follow me on social media, you saw one of my recent attempts at a slimline design and, oh, boy, was it a mess. Even though that card did not turn out how I expected, I was able to learn from my mistakes and create something new.

This gorgeous butterfly card is a small reminder to myself – even after a messy month of disasters I need to remember to love myself. I need to give myself some grace, step away from the craft space, and be happy with the creative mess that I am. Little reminders like this are just God’s way of telling me that everything is going to be okay. 

It is for this reason that I used many of the elements from the You Are Enough collection. I just adore all the phrases, patterns, and rose gold elements in that collection. I purposely chose to use a piece of pattern paper that says “beautiful” on this card to add to all the other reminders to be good to yourself.

I also added an elegantly layered die-cut butterfly image to this card. The softness of the vellum plays so well against the soft cream color of the French Vanilla cardstock. I wish the photo could show you how lovely the texture paste background looks with the distress oxide ink. My poor camera has decided to go on strike and I am struggling to get well-detailed photos of my projects this month.


I hope that today’s project inspired you to create a slimline card of your own and I hope that you remember to take a little time to LOVE YOURSELF. Take care of your soul, spend some time in the sun, and enjoy creating something new this week.

Now head on over to  Darlys Recker’s blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all of the team blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun slimline card ideas. Remember, the You Are Enough collection is only available while supplies last. If there are any products currently on your wishlist, you might want to head on over to my site and grab them sooner than later.

Welcome to the In This Together Blog Hop

This week, our team will be sharing projects to inspire you using the In This Together papers, stickers, and stamp set. This limited-time special has been designed for you to celebrate the happy moments from the past year.  

What is a blog hop? 152397897_10158228882137686_5824777505515155670_nThis is a wonderful way for you to gather a few ideas for using a specific element on your projects. You may be just starting out here or you may have come from Kristine Ponte’s blog – either way, you are in the right place.  When you are finished viewing my Quirky Quarantine card, click the link at the end of my post to “hop” on over to the next website. If you get lost along the way, you will find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.


One year ago, no one expected that we would be experiencing a quickly changing world. A life locked down, full of virtual events, and learning to adapt to daily changes. Many of my friends are still struggling with the changes, so I decided that I would cheer them up with a Quirky Quarantine slimline card.

Just roll with it. That’s how I have had to live life over the last year. I am sure many of you felt the same way. There was absolutely nothing I could do to change what was happening, so I just had to roll with the punches. That little stamp made this saying even more amusing being placed on a TP roll. Do you remember that shortage?

I chose to stamp the image on yellow pattern paper using Intense Black ink, shaded it with watercolor pencils, and added it onto the card like a tab. I created a matching tab at the bottom using our Tabs & Tags thin cuts.

The background papers from the In This Together collection were adhered to a slimline card base and a little stitching was added for texture. I love how bright and cheery these papers are and plan to use them for a few of my spring layouts.

To break up the plaid pattern, I cut a circle and flipped it over to reveal the dots on the back. This circle helped me to frame my sentiment with the stickers.

The remaining parts of the card were simple. These are all stickers from the In This Together sticker sheet layered atop each other using foam tape. I added some flowers, hearts, a cheerful sentiment, and a few silly additions to put a smile on the recipient’s face.


I hope that this project inspired you, brought a smile to your face, and triggered a few happy memories from the past year. Now head on over to the talented Cat Nowak ’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all of the blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas.
