Hello, I haven’t posted in a few days. Saturday was Mama Elephant’s third anniversary party in NYC, which was SO much fun. I got to see old friends and new (local and from far!) I was able to get my hands on the new release early and even created a few cards. You can find them on Instagram later. On Monday, I crafted with two sisters I met at the party (one of them I met last year). Oh yeah, Lynn and I did a Periscope of the event under the ME account, but it’s gone by now.

For today’s post, I made a simple card using some Just Dandy Studio products.


When I saw the sentiment “our lives are tied together with friendship,” I thought about tying together twine. I die-cut the hello three times using white cardstock and once using Happy Dots gift wrap. I matted it down on the cardbase and stamped the sentiments in black and pink. I arranged some matching sequins from The Ton. On the side, I tied and glued three of the Baker’s Twine. It looks like I’m getting much better with CAS cards, right?

I’m taking it easy these days. I still craft, but writing up blog posts takes up a lot of time and dedication. Often I find myself asking what my intentions are when it comes to crafting. It is to have fun–everything else is just a bonus. 🙂

Also, since it’s the 15th, Just Dandy Studio reveals next month’s Dandy Mail kit. This one is SOOO cute. Check the shop for more details.
