About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

June Anniversary Card

anniversary shutter card, designed by Grace Baxter

With June being the most popular month for weddings in past years, it's for sure there are many June anniversaries. My sister, who is celebrating her anniversary today, loves flowers any way she can get them, so I'm sure she will enjoy these.

When I first saw this package of stickers, without hesitation I had to have them! I wasn't sure where or how I'd use them, but somehow they touched a chord in me and made me feel happy. Don't you love when that happens?

This is the first tri-shutter card I've ever made. Of course, being the paper nut that I am, I bought wayyyy too many beautiful papers in shades of purple and green. I couldn't help myself! This card only required a few.

For this card, the beautiful stickers take the spotlight. These are from the Tim Coffey collection by K&Compay. They are mounted on plain white and "popped" for dimension. For most of the panels, I chose to emboss rather than go with a busy printed paper.

This design can be used for any occasion, only needing the centre message to be changed appropriately. I made a personalized message on the computer and attached it to the back of the closed card. I hope the recipients think to turn it over and look there!

The Anniversary sentiment was cut with the Cricut using the Sweethearts cartridge.

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
